MFT Summer School is back and so far I've finished 3 lessons. A few days ago I smooshed a variety of green Distress Inks on watercolor cardstock & spritzed with a green shimmer mist. I die cut MFT Spring Wreath wreath & discovered there wasn't room to cut a second one, as I'd planned. Instead, I die cut the 2 little sprigs several times & began with a project using them.
Day 1 is Monochromatic.
I die cut & stamped the tag from MFT Tag You're It. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in green & Versamark so I could heat emboss it. Then I arranged the little sprigs & added green Nuvo Drops, shimmer spray splatters & a green twine bow. This will go to my sweet neighbors with some of my homemade applesauce. I'm also entering SSS Monday.
Day 2 is Focal Point.
I had such fun stitching another MFT tag on our last camping trip. It was my first time to do something different for the background & I love the look of my white stitched lines. May look black, but actually it's green, white & gold--a favorite Christmas color combo. The green mat is textured cardstock & the white ribbon with the lines seemed a good match. I added the PTI Tiny Tag for the sentiment as I really didn't want to cover up any of my tag--haha! I think the gold mat & the raised tag makes the focal point stand out even with a solid background. I'm also entering The Snippets Playground.
Day 3 is Visual Triangle.
I used the wreath die cut from the smooshed panel along with white felt flowers (attached to cardstock) from MFT Prima Donna Petals. I added tiny gems to the flower centers & arranged them for the visual triangle. I dry embossed MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Square die into Classic Kraft cardstock, stamped the sentiment from MFT Spring in brown ink & mounted it to a brown panel. Love this twine & thought it was perfect for the look of this card. Tried to leave the bow plain, but gave in & added the brown pearl. I'm also entering Retro Rubber with die cut, green, leaves & the sentiment from my first MFT stamp set which I've had for probably 8-10 years.
Two more lessons & I already have some ideas. Gotta do chores first--yuk! Thought I'd leave you with this cute picture of Fritz.
He managed to get the blanket in his bed over his back & head. Then he walked slowly over to our chairs with this look on his face, as if to say--Momma, help! So funny! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
