I’ve also made a Clean & Simple card for this year’s MFT Superstar. Once again, my markers have been out to play, and I’ve coloured up Birdie Brown’s Warmest Wishes. After colouring up a little background around her I’ve used that colour on the background paper from the Watercolor Wash paper pad. The sentiment, from the Bitty Holiday Wishes set, has been put to run along the edge to keep the focus on the right-hand side of the card. As I’ve put it that way around, I stuck with black ink so it would be easy to read still.
This card has been entered into the following challenge:
Apparently, it’s that time of the year again. MFT Stamps Superstar time! With the whole family off sick, I nearly missed the whole thing. Thankfully there were a few hours left!
For my Coloring Virtuoso entry this year I wanted to do something different, so I’ve stuck with just one stamp set, the Being with You stamp set by Stacey Yacula. I’ve done a full panel colouring with dark and bright colours using my Copic markers, and I’ve made a wedding card using a sentiment from Itty Bitty Basics. It can be for two men, two women or one of each. That’s what’s great about these stamps. Love is love.
The card has been entered into the following challenge:
My second entry for this years MFT Stamps‘ Superstar contest is for the colouring category. I’ve been unsure if I was going to have the energy for this as I’ve been unwell most of this month so far, the past week and a half with a nasty cold and a cough that simply will neither let go nor let me sleep. Oh how I am looking forward to it disappearing!
Anyway, here I am with my finished project. I had an idea which I think fits with the last year. How some people make a difference and make your life more colourful. So the front is coloured in black and white, the first page inside is the same image, but in colour, and then it’s a normal greeting area inside with the text “You Make Everyday Life Feel Special”. I have combined various sets from the Birdie Brown and Stacey Yacula collections for the scene.
Here is the front of the card. I have used scissors to cut a small tab at the bottom which I embossed a small greeting onto. I’ve also used chunky embossing to create snow on the image.
Here is the flip inside with the coloured image. I’ve added “snow” to this panel as well as another sentiment:
And the page inside with the greeting:
Here are the two coloured panels before I made the card:
I’ve used the following stamp sets:
Adorable Adventures Always Bring a Smile Holiday Penguins Itty Bitty Basics Merry Wishes Scene Builder Warmest Wishes
Copics used: (black and white image) T0, T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9.
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.
Apparently it’s that time of year again. The time when MFT Stamps are having their annual contest. So I spent some time masking and colouring and squinting trying to see where to colour the various bits. Here it is, my entry for the colouring part of the Superstar contest.
I have used five different stamp sets to make this. The girl, the cupcake stand and the biggest present is from the Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set, the 3 smaller presents and the balloons are from Beary Special Birthday, the banner is from Up in the Air, the birds are from the Happy Hippos set and the clouds are from Scene Builder.
I’ve used one of the STAX rectangles for the panel itself, the cardstock is After Midnight and the embossed sentiment is off the Bitty Bears set.
