My Favorite Things & Chibitronics collaboration

Hi everyone! It’s time for a new My Favorite Things and Chibitronics collaboration showcasing the super fun and interactive Chibi Lights set. Here is my card for today: 






I used the Bionic Bots set for my Chibi Light project. It’s super easy to create and it goes fast (ok, I only put one light, maybe with more lights, it goes a bit longer)! I used the red led that came with the kit (but there are also yellow, blue and white lights in the kit). You can also buy the elements separately HERE. I colored the robot with Copic markers and fixed him with foam pads on a panel that I die cut from the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics. The patterned paper on the card base is from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack. I put the battery under the robot’s body so when I press the heart, the antenna lights up and spread some love! Isn’t that cool?!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #295

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with: 





For this card, I challenged myself to use NO BLACK lol (I just used a grey pencil for the eyes)! I stamped the cute hog from the Birdie Brown Hog Heave set with Insulation Pink hybrid ink and colored the cutie using the no-line technique with pencils! The card base was created from Sno Cone cardstock. For the rainbow, I used Cotton Candy, Peach Bellini, Lemon Chiffon, Spearmint, Sno Cone and Wild Wisteria cardstock from MFT. I die cut a grassy border from Sour Apple cardstock using the Grassy Fields Die-namics set. The clouds were die cut from the Puffy Clouds dies. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set with white embossing powder. No black at all on my card and beautiful pastel colors! I like the result! Hope you like it too!

Here is the sketch #295 for this week’s challenge:

Selective dry embossing

Hi everyone ! Here is a card I made using the selective dry embossing technique (or embossing folder resist). It allows to keep a portion of the design flat. Here is what I came up with:






The speech bubble die I used is from the Talk Bubbles set from Magnolia. I also used the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder from Cuttlebug (seems to be unavailable right now) for the embossed background. The background was sponged with Distress inks. 

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for visiting my blog today…

Penny Black Simplicity – You Rock

Hello everyone! I’m back with a card I made for Penny Black.  This time, I decided to showcase the Woodland Friends (30-278). Here is my creation: 





I created a top-folded card base from kraft cardstock. I die cut the "You Rock" from the Well Done (21-223) die set from white cardstock and used the negative part that I fixed to the card base with foam pads. I stamped the cute bunnies in black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out with scissors and fixed them to the card base with foam pads too. The tiny heart is from the Pillow Box (51-210) die set.

My Favorite Things – August Release Replay

Hi everyone! It’s time for the August My Favorite Things release replay! Today, the MFT design team is taking a fresh look at the most recent release.

My project is a card featuring the newest Frightful Friends stamp set:




I first created a background with the ink smooching technique using red Distress inks. I made a ghost with the funny mummy lady! I colored her with Copic markers, fussy cut her and fixed her to the background with foam pads. The heart is from the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 that I die cut from Wild Cherry card stock.
