MFT WCMD Challenges


I did it--got the 4 MFT WCMD challenges completed in time!  Now fingers crossed that Mr MFT Random will find me--great prizes!
#1: Rainbow
Used my Mini MISTI to stamp the cute bird & the separate wing from MFT Contempo Cage.  The Memento inks are Love Letter, Morocco, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy & Nautical Blue.  The sentiment is MFT High Rise Lower Case Alphabet.  The wavy edge is done with MFT Wavy Edge.  I'm also entering SSS WCMD.

I inked MFT Spring Wreath with DIs evergreen bough & iced spruce.  The white dots are done with an extra fine Sharpie.  Finally tried sponging a card front going from dark to light leaving the top white--really like the look.  The bow comes with the wreath & I sponged it with DI festive berries to match the card.  MFT High Rise Lower Case Alphabet dies were cut from cardstock & glitter paper.  Couldn't resist using some of my huge collection of gems, including the one on the bow.  Looks like a black dot in the center, but trust me, it's a clear gem.  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, HLS Christmas, SSS Wednesday & SSS WCMD.

Finally opened the pack of Heidi Swapp stickers I bought ages ago.  Luckily, they included numbers & pieces I could use for a percent symbol.  They're meant to be colored with spray mists, so that's what I did. 
Boy do I love the Delusions Vibrant Turquoise--gotta make more use of it.  The background is MFT Geometric Grid silver embossed & MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Squares cut the panel & the card.  I silver embossed the Verve word die & placed it into the negative I'd cut from the panel.  Fun little card for a blogging friend.  I'm also entering SSS WCMD.

Hurrah--finally opened my MFT Desert Bouquet stamp set.  I stamped the greenery in DI bundled sage & the dots in weathered wood on linen cardstock.  The bundled sage was lightly sponged over the images & the Hero Arts 2003 sentiment was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia using my old fashioned stamp positioning tool.  The stitching is done with Lil' Inker stitched rectangle.  No bling as I prefer simple & understated for sympathy cards.  The envelope is addressed & I'll mail it tomorrow.  I'm also entering SSS WCMD & CropStop.  Thanks so much for taking time to get through this long post.  I'll be catching up on your blogs soon.

  3. Beautiful cards, Greta. The first one with the birds in the colours of the rainbow, is my favourite. I like the contrast with the white-black background. I also love the 3rd card, the one with the numbers, because I love the sentiment! Kisses, my friend.

  9. Wow, Greta, you did a fantastic day for WCMD. I love the curvy border on the first card. That is so cool. The DI you used on the wreath look great and the bright spray really pops. The last card is my favorite. It is a perfect sympathy card. Finally got meds yesterday at noon! This has been a long battle to get over this and I almost feel worse today.
