Butterfly Hi

Print

Hello friends! I’m back again today with a fun summertime card using the new Flutter of Butterflies – Lace Die-namics.

Handmade card from Karen Giron featuring the Flutter of Butterflies - Lace Die-namics.

I love the different sizes and patterns this Die-namics set offers and I thought this particular butterfly would work fantastic as a Monarch. To create this look, I cut out the butterfly in Black Licorice, Persimmon, Orange Fizz, and Smooth White card stock and then paper pieced all the colors into place. To keep all the colors in place, I added some clear tape to the back of the black butterfly frame, which gave me a sticky surface to add the inside pieces. You could also use the Flutter of Butterflies  – Solid Die-namics in Black Licorice underneath for a nice solid card stock base.

The sentiment is one of the Happy Hello Die-namics, which I cut out in Smooth White card stock and I looped it around the butterfly and adhered it to the flower with Glossy Accents. I created the flower background with various sizes of the Plentiful Petal Die-namics set in Lemon Drop card stock, and then added some inky accents with the Abstract Art stamp set. Those little ink splatters are a fabulous way to fill in empty spaces!

It has been great being a guest designer this past week! Have a fantastic day.

You are a Star

Hi everyone! It’s Carissa Wiley here again with a guest post here on the My Favorite Things Blog! Today I’ve created a fun card for you featuring the adorable Tutu Cute stamp set, along with some other fun new products. And I’ve managed to create it WITHOUT gold glitter cardstock 😉 I have created a video tutorial over for this card, and you can check that out by visiting my blog HERE.

You are a Star handmade card from Carissa Wiley featuring the Tutu Cute stamp set and Die-namics from Pure Innocence.

I started out by stamping this adorable ballerina from the TuTu Cute stamp set in black pigment ink. I wanted to heat emboss this image so that when I watercolored it, the watercolor would stay inside the lines. I added clear embossing powder and this gives me a nice, crisp, image. I used watercolor markers to color my image, but you can use whatever coloring medium that you prefer, including dye inks, to color yours. I love the softness that the watercolor gives the image. I finished her off with a little sparkle by adding some Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Marker over the top of her dress and tutu.

I cut out the adorable ballerina using the coordinating TuTu Cute Die-namics. I love the convenience of coordinating dies. Yay for no fussy cutting! They’re perfect for cutting out the stamped images or creating masks. You can also use them to create a debossed outline around your stamped images. I embossed the Myriad Dots background stamp in gold embossing powder on some heavyweight vellum. I used the Stitched Circle STAX to die-cut the vellum. I love the look of embossing, especially gold, on vellum. Remember to prep your surface with an antistatic tool too keep embossing powder from sticking to areas that you may not want. This gives her the perfect sparkly background to stand on. You’d pay a lot of money for a gold embossed vellum in a craft store, but this is an easy way to make your own with any stamp that you prefer. I also used this same background stamp to clear heat emboss the background of my card to create some texture.

I created some coordinating gold card stock by pressing my embossing pad to some white card stock and adding gold embossing powder to it. This was the perfect card stock to cut the star sentiment from the Stars and Wishes Die-namics. I layered that up with some vellum, cut with the coordinating Count the Stars Die-namics. I love to use vellum layers behind die-cut sentiments. It creates a soft halo effect.

In order to create the rest of the sentiment, I had to do some creative inking and stamp surgery. I stamped it on the banner die cut from the Blueprints 25 Die-namics. Love the versatility of the Blueprints sets! You can see exactly how I accomplished the stamp surgery and creative inking in the video tutorial over on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ve enjoyed this card project. And thank you to the kind people at My Favorite Things for inviting me to share here. Until next time, have a fabulous day!

Herd You Had a Birthday

Print

Good morning! Debbie Olson back again today with some more fabulous MFT goodies to share!

Handmade card from Debbie Olson featuring Birdie Brown The Whole Herd stamp set and Die-namics.

One of my favorite of the newer MFT stamp sets is The Whole Herd; there are just so many ways that you can use this set, especially when you consider how well it pairs with the Green Pastures set too.

I stamped the front cow (second from right) first. (Okay, it could be a bull, but since it would be odd to have a herd of bulls, I’ve decided that mine will be a cow!) Next I stamped and trimmed a mask for that one so that I could stamp the cows around her. Finally, I had to cut two more partial masks so that I could mask off the three cows in front of the haystack.

I used a Copic black 0.3 Multiliner to sketch some rolling hills as a backdrop for my cows and haystack. As an afterthought, I added the little pig, popped up with foam tape, for some variety in both color and subject matter—loved him! He was cut with The Whole Herd Die-namics.

Handmade card from Debbie Olson featuring Birdie Brown The Whole Herd stamp set and Die-namics.

For the card’s inside, I used the Rolling Hills Die-namics to cut both the grass and the fence. I cut them both from white cardstock, then used the same Copic green markers on the inside grass that I had used on the outside grass (shown below). I colored the cow pretty much the same as the ones on the outside of the card, except that I made the nose a little lighter and liked that better—not enough better to redo the front though! I airbrushed sky (Copic B02 marker and airbrush system) on the inside because all of my elements were die-cut, and therefore I didn’t need to do any masking to airbrush the sky. Airbrushing it also kept the ink from coming through the other side of the cardstock as it would have if I had hand-colored it with my Copics. I masked the sentiment when I stamped it to include just the part that I wanted.

Shown above are the Copic Markers that I used on the card.

The banner is cut with Blueprints 20, and patterned paper is from Carta Bella’s Summer Lovin’ 6” x 6” pad. I used Blueprints 20 to cut the focal image panel as well as the little black scalloped edge at the bottom. The finished card is a bit oversized at 5-1/2” square.

How about some butterflies next? Maybe they flit around the farm—you never know! For these cards I used the Flutter of Butterflies – Lace Die-namics, paired with Blueprints 20 on the standing card and Blueprints 15 on the card that is lying down.

On this card I also used the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX for the sentiment, which is from the Tickled Pink stamp set. The background is watercolored with distress inks, and the butterflies are coated in glue pen and glitter

For these butterflies, I watercolored a white piece of card stock with various distress inks, then die cut my butterflies when it was completely dry. I used a glue pen to add glitter afterward. The sentiment is from Blue Skies Ahead, inked in Sno-Cone and Blue Breeze Hybrid Inks and cut with the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX. The scalloped layer is MFT Sno Cone Card Stock.

Again, thank you so much to Kim and MFT for allowing me to be a guest on the blog—I’ve loved it!

Watercolor Wonders

Print

Good morning! Debbie Olson here, and I am delighted to be a guest today and tomorrow on the MFT Stamps blog. I confess that I’ve ordered more than my fair share of sweet stamp sets and dies from My Favorite Things, and it’s always exciting to get a box with “a whole lot of happy” inside!

Handmade card from Debbie Olson featuring the Watercolor Flowers stamp set and Die-namics.

Today I am using the Watercolor Flowers stamp set, along with its coordinating Watercolor Flowers Die-namics and several other MFT Die-namics sets, including Blueprints 20 (for the Pink Lemonade scalloped layer and card base), Blueprints 24 (for the floral-stamped focal image layer) and the Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX (for the sentiment on Cotton Candy Card Stock.)

Handmade card from Debbie Olson featuring the Watercolor Flowers stamp set and Die-namics.

To stamp the pink flowers, I used Pink Lemonade, Cotton Candy, and Razzle Berry Hybrid Inks, as well as Banana Split, Lemon Drop, and Safety Orange Hybrid Inks. I also used a touch of Orange Zest for the flower center of the yellow flowers. For leaves, I used Limelight, Sour Apple, and Gumdrop Green inks (some Hybrid and some Premium Dye – I have a mixture of ink pad types.) I applied dots of glue with a glue pen to the flower centers and sprinkled the wet glue with crystal glitter. The sentiment is from the Tickled Pink stamp set, heat embossed with detail white embossing powder on Cotton Candy Card Stock.

Handmade card from Debbie Olson featuring the Watercolor Flowers stamp set and Die-namics.

I played with a second, simpler card using a different ink color scheme, including MFT Hybrid Inks in the following colors: Red Hot, Insulation Pink, Brick Red, Fuse Green, and Olive. The “Miss You” sentiment is from the Written in Watercolor stamp set, stamped in Nightshift Blue ink. I airbrushed the card background with my Copic Airbrush System and Copic B45 Sketch Marker. The bottom layer of flowers was hand-trimmed, and the top flower/leaves are cut with the Watercolor Flowers Die-namics. I cut my Nightshift Blue scalloped edge from the Blueprints 20 set and my focal panels with Blueprints 24.

If you haven’t played with the Hybrids Inks much, you might not realize that colors appear to shift a bit when you stack them differently on a multi-step stamp set. So, if you think that you have three inks that will work together, BUT one of them is a bit too dark, then go ahead and stamp that darker layer before you stamp the lighter layer, and the lighter layer will cover over the darker layer enough to lighten it up a bit. At least, that’s what it seemed like for me! On the card above, I stamped my Red Hot layer FIRST (even though it was the second stamp in the three-step group), then my Insulation Pink on top of the Red Hot (lightening my Red Hot a bit), and finally added the third layer of Brick Red. For the leaves, I used Fuse Green and Olive Hybrid Inks.

I have two more fabulous MFT sets to play with in tomorrow’s post, so I hope to see you then. Thanks for visiting!

Hay There!

If you’ve been around here for awhile, you’ll recognize this pretty face right away. We’re so pleased to have MFT Design Team superstar alumnus Karen Giron joining us today.

I am extremely thrilled to be back, as a guest, designing for MFT! I picked up this adorable Birdie Brown set – The Whole Herd – and re-introduced myself to my Copic Markers. I cut out the pig and cow with The Whole Herd Die-namics and then stamped the animals in Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

mft_guest_6_24_cardlWM

The Barn Die-namics really make a fun backdrop for my little animals; I pieced together the barn and then set it over the scalloped Stitched Speech Bubble Edges Die-namics, which looks like a big fluffy cloud to me. To make the hay stand out a bit, I added some strips of color using various Copics.

Summer School – It’s Your Turn to Learn: Quiet Space/White Space

Print

MFT_DT_SusanOpel_200pxPretty soon you’ll need to clear out your desks and take a little vacation from summer school, but before you go, we have one last lesson to share. And by the way… did you notice the Session One in our logo? We’ll be back later this summer with more fun classes!

Our last lesson for this session falls under the umbrella of balance and will teach you the design concept of using Quiet Space (aka White Space). “White space” stays in the background to make the focal point or the sentiment the unabashed star of the show. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be white!

Lesson #5 – Balance: Quiet Space/White Space

MFT_June19(2)

Today’s instructor is My Favorite Things Design Team member Stephanie Klauck. Click HERE or simply watch the video below to get some fantastic tips from her about creating a card with Quiet Space/White Space. There’s even a bonus lesson on how she achieved the shading on her cute cow from The Whole Herd stamp set.

I just loved Stephanie’s tip for salvaging the card stock panel that was stained with the embossing paste. The double white panel adds interest and depth to the vast amount of white space in this design.

Stephanie’s good design is evident with the Focal Point falling on one of the intersections or the imaginary grid we learned about on Monday in our first lesson on the Rule of Thirds.

Summer School – It’s Your Turn to Learn: Line

Print

MFT_DT_SusanOpel_200pxSharpen your pencils and take your seats! It’s time for another lesson in design. We hope you’ve been soaking in all of the good stuff we’ve shared this week. And better yet, we’d love to see what you’ve been learning!

Achieving Balance is essential to good design. Balance is the way the elements of a card (lines, shapes, colors, textures, etc.) are arranged to create a feeling of stability; a pleasing or harmonious arrangement or proportion in a card design. We’ll round out the week with two lessons on keeping everything balanced! Today’s lesson is about the intentional use of Line in your designs. Horizontal lines can be calm and quiet or an anchor, while vertical lines can convey movement.

Lesson #4 – Balance: Line

Say hello to today’s instructor, My Favorite Things Design Team member Kay Miller. Kay has prepared an excellent lesson on achieving balance in your design by using Line.

KayM-photo9 copy

To begin with, Kay has some key points to remember about using line:

Lines are very important in graphic design and in card making. Lines can do many things to add visually interesting content to your design. Understanding how to use lines can help you communicate a certain feeling or idea in your work.

1. Lines draw the eye to the focal point.

2. Lines can divide  space and direct the viewers’ eyes.

3. Lines direct the flow of content.

4. Lines can help give emphasis to a specific area.

Lines can be created using so many different things. You can use strips of paper, stencils, line stamps, or dies. You can also watercolor lines or use text to create lines.

KayM-photo2

Kay cut four lines and inlaid them into white card stock to make everything flat. Once that step was complete, she cut the entire panel with the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 20.

KayM-photo4

These colorful horizontal lines become the perfect place to place a Focal Point as they ground the design.

KayM-photo5

Pop up the Focal Point and accents with foam tape, and the design is complete. Notice, too, that the horizontal lines are placed on one of the imaginary line of thirds that Kimberly covered Monday in her lesson on the Rule of Thirds.

KayM-photo8

And there you have it. A well balanced card with perfect composition! Thanks for a great lesson, Kay!

Summer School – It’s Your Turn to Learn: Movement/Flow

Print

MFT_DT_SusanOpel_200pxWe’ve made it to the third day of summer school. Are you having fun learning? You’ve had 24 hours to stretch your legs, get some rest, and do your homework, but now it’s time to get back into the creative classroom for more design tips from My Favorite Things! Be sure to check out Lesson #1 and Lesson #2 if you happened to miss them.

 Our third and final composition lesson will help you understand the idea of incorporating Movement/Flow in your designs. Movement/Flow is the arrangement of the elements on a card to create
 a sense of motion by using lines, shapes, forms, and textures that cause the eye to move over the design. Creating a visual triangle with sentiment, paper, and focal point is a great way to show movement as well!

Lesson #3 – Composition: Movement/Flow

movement-detail-shot-julia Even though a card is a stationary thing (and also a stationery thing for that matter), you can create movement by following some simple guidelines. It just takes a little knowledge, and we’re here to help you with that!

Today’s instructor is My Favorite Things Design Team member Julia Stainton. Click HERE or simply watch the video below to glean some fantastic tips from Julia about creating movement in your designs.

That idea about using text to create movement was so great. I had never thought of that!

Summer School – It’s Your Turn to Learn: Focal Point

Print

MFT_DT_SusanOpel_200pxHello again, dear students! We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s lesson on composition and how to use the Rule of Thirds to your advantage when designing. If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check it out HERE. Kimberly Crawford’s tutorial makes so much sense!

Today our composition lesson will help you understand the concept of creating a fantastic Focal Point. The Focal Point on any given project is the main area where an embellishment or image stamp is placed. Typically it works best if there is only one focal point.

Lesson #2 – Composition: Focal Point

I’d like to introduce you to today’s instructor, My Favorite Things Design Team member Keisha Campbell. Let’s settle in for a lesson in creating a fantastic Focal Point!

Start with a pretty background to be the stage for your focal point. Bold or subtle, the background grounds everything and showcases the focal point to perfection.

MFT_jun16_b copy

Keisha used a bullseye design to draw the eye to the center of the card using circle Die-namics. By adding foam tape to the circles, she puts even more attention on the focal point.

MFT_jun16_f copy

Using one of the inner circles created when die cutting the bullseye, Keisha stamps a pretty pattern. The lacy design pairs well with the bold background, but the delicacy of it makes you want to look closer.

MFT_jun16_g copy

Next Keisha adds a bright yellow butterfly to the bullseye. The color alone draws the eye to it. Notice her placement to the right of the circle still allowing the lace design to show. Just lovely!

MFT_jun16_i copy

Finally, add in the sentiment to tie it altogether. Notice how the banner extends across the whole Persimmon circle. The layered circles with the orange ring and bright butterfly with the sentiment across it all draw the eye to the center.

MFT_jun16_j copy

And what a lovely card Keisha has created drawing the eye to her dramatic and very pretty Focal Point!
