My Favorite Things Superstar Card Design Contest Entry #3

Here is my third entry for the MFT Card Design Superstar contest.

For this card I decided to use the MFT Santa's Elves set, by Birdie Brown. This is another one I fell in love with, and just " had" to have! I  used one of the Inside and Out rectangle dies for the frame of the shaker, and accented the tree with Dazzles, and also used some of the new Snowflake Dazzles as well. For the inside of my shaker, I used sequins, stars, and micro beads that I had in my stash.

I really had a lot of fun with this card, and I'm sure I'll have a lot more cards made with this stamp set for my Christmas cards this year.

My Favorite Things Superstar Card Design Contest Entry #2

Here is my third entry for the MFT Superstar Card Design Contest.

For this card, I chose another set of stamps that I just recently purchased from MFT, Magical Dragons, this was also one of my " must have" stamp sets. For those who know me well, I don't think I need to tell you why I fell in love with this set, but for those who don't, I just love dragons, and I had to have!

I wanted a rainbow for my card, so I made one using the Inside and Out circle die set, I did this by cutting out each circle with a different color of the rainbow, I adhered them all to a solid circle that I cut out with the largest die, then I cut that piece in half, this left me with two rainbows that I can use, one for this card, and one to use at a later date.  I made the clouds using the smoke puff stamps that came with the stamp set, and traced the swirls with stickles, to give them some sparkle. I adhered them under the rainbow, using dimensional  tape on every other one. I stamped and colored my little dragons with Copic markers, then adhered them to the clouds. I stamped one of the sentiments that came with the set underneath my images. I added this all on top of a piece of cloud design paper, matted it with blue card stock, and added it to the card base.

I really enjoyed making this card, and think it turned out real cute. Can't wait to make more projects with this stamp set.

My Favorite Things: Super Star Contest

MFT is at it again, with another contest, and I love! This time they are sponsoring a design contest, with a prize of 250.00 MFT store voucher. for more details, click here.

For my entry, I chose to use the Beary Special Birthday stamp set for my stamped images.

I colored my images using Copic markers, cut them out, and adhered them with dimensional tape. The heart balloon I cut using MFT Heart Balloons dies, using DCWV Glitzy Glitter card stock, attached it with dimensional tape, and I added a piece of red and white baker's twine from the balloon to the gifts down bellow. I cut out a zigzag border using the same glitter card stock and the narrowest zigzag from the MFT Chevron Stripes Die-namics die set. The party hat I stamped on red with white polka dot paper, and cut it out with scissors. For the yellow background panel, and the blue, red and green panels sticking out from the side, I used the MFT Inside/Out Stitched Rectangles. I added some silver border stickers to add a little touch to the smaller rectangles.

As always, I had a lot of fun making this card, Up to three entries are aloud in the contest, so I will surely be making more cards to enter.
