MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #295

Another Wednesday means a new sketch from My Favorite Things.

Here's Sketch #295.

And here's my take on it.

I die cut two bird cages from gold card stock and joined them together
to form a longer cage. Three birds were white embossed and ink distressed
and adhered to the cage. I added a strip of dotted paper and finished off
with the sentiment and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

MFT August Card Kit Release

My Favorite Things August Card Kit--Sensational Stitched Flowers is now
available to purchase in the MFT Store!

I'd like to share one more card with you, using the contents of the kit, as well as
MFT products you may already own. This is such an awesome kit and I'm predicting
another super early sell out, so be sure to grab yours now!

I wanted to create a wreath, so I folded a 5x5" card base from Primitive White
card stock and stamped the Crosshatch Background with In the Buff dye ink.
 I die cut a ton of flowers and leaves from the card stock in the kit.

The edges of the flowers and leaves were shaded with Distress inks, and
highlighted with white pigment ink to give them more dimension. They were
adhered to the card base, forming a wreath. The sentiment was gold embossed
on a strip of vellum and wrapped around the card.

I'm so in love with the stitching details on the dies. Stitching always adds
wonderful texture and ink distressing brings it out even more.

Thanks for stopping by during the card kit countdown and release!
Now, go and buy your kit and don't forget to tag your photos with #mftstamps
on social media so we can see your projects created with this fabulous kit.

MFT Sensational Stitched Flowers--Day 2

Today we're sharing "out of the box" projects with MFT's August Card Kit,
Sensational Stitched Flowers, using other MFT products you may already own.

The stitched flowers and leaves were just begging to be ink distressed,
so I obliged. I love how adding color brings out the stitching details even more.

Tone on tone stamping was done with the Wire Background on a Cement
Gray card base. I ink distressed several blooms and leaves and adhered them
to the card. The "thanks"--this month's "free with $60" die--was adhered and
the second part of the sentiment was white embossed beneath it.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things for more Card Kit inspiration from 
participating design team members. This amazing kit will go on sale
tomorrow, August 23rd at 10PM EST in the MFT Store!
