MFT Clean and simple genius

It’s that time of the year again. My Favorite Things are having their annual card making contest, the Superstar contest. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had the time or energy to take part this time, but after a week of back pain followed by a week with a nasty cold and cough I simply needed something to do! So here I am with my first project. Hopefully there’ll be at least one more.

White on white is quite common, but I wanted something different. So for my sympathy card I’ve gone with black on black. I think it’s the first time I make a proper black card, actually.

I’ve used the Magnolia Blossoms stamp set. This time I embossed it with clear embossing powder onto black card stock before colouring it up with my Prismacolor Pencils. A STAX stitched rectangle die cut and an essential stitched banner die for the embossed text (from the same set as the flowers, the card kit version), both added with foam tape, gave the card a bit more interest and dimension.

Slimline flowers

I’ve finally finished the card I made with the Pinkfresh Studio flowers I coloured up with my Prismacolor pencils for my video back in August: see it here. I’ve drawn a border around the coloured panel and stamped a birthday greeting from Papertrey Ink. A few sequins and then some die cut butterflies from La-La Land Crafts made up the rest of the card.

Colouring video: Miss Your Smile

There is a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel Lizlandcards and this time it’s my pencils that have gotten to come out to play again. I’ve coloured up this slimline stamp by Pinkfresh Studio called Miss Your Smile designed by Emily Midgett. She draws the most gorgeous flowers!

Cupcake mouse

Here is the blog post for the card I made using the colouring from the video I posted earlier this week. You can find the video here.

I’ve used a stripe from one of the papers in one of MFT Stamps paper pads, the mouse and cupcake stamp are also MFT. Then I’ve die cut a number 3 (also MFT) and coloured it up in a matching green colour before die cutting a happy, embossing a birthday and sing three different types of washi tape to make a fun background for the sentiment area. I’ve also drawn a whimsical border in around the coloured panel. All in all, a fun card to make! I enjoyed making a different kind of card when using kraft and coloured pencils for a change.

Colouring video: MFT Mice Day to celebrate

There is a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel today and this time I’ve used my Prismacolor pencils to colour up this mouse and cupcake stamp from MFT Stamps called Mice Day to Celebrate. You can see how I’ve coloured up the entire stamp. As usual I’ve used kraft cardstock to colour on. You can see the finished card below, it’ll get its own post as well.

Once again the video is without audio.
