CASology Guest Designer


I'm guesting for this week's CASology challenge, since my ICING card
was chosen as the weekly winner! Here's this week's cue word.


And here's how I interpreted the word--with springtime butterflies.

I ink distressed three butterflies and adhered them to the card, leaving
as much white space as possible. I adhered the label sentiment, a few sequins,
and finished the card by rounding off the bottom left corner. 

We hope you'll join this week's challenge and share your interpretation of the 
cue word. You have until Monday, May 1st at 12PM CST to link up your card.
And big thanks to Melissa and the CASology girls for having me as a guest!

MFT April Creative Construction with Blueprints--Come As You Are

Mixing and matching Blueprints elements is such an appealing way of creating 
something new and exciting. Every new Blueprints release includes a quartet of 
sketches featuring the elements. Join our team this month as they interpret 
Blueprints sketches and make them their own.

 For my project, I chose to work with Blueprints 26.

My card is loosely based on a combination of the first and fourth sketches.

The grassy hill was formed with the largest balloon element. After ink distressing
the balloon, I covered up the "neck" portion with the koalas and adhered the
smaller balloon that was ink distressed with Distress Oxide inks. 

Three little birds were adhered to the card, and the sentiment was white 
embossed on the hill. I finished off the card by rounding off the bottom corners.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things to see how the rest of the Creative
 Team took on the Blueprints challenge!

CAS(E) this Sketch #218

N@ Ali brings us this week's CAS(E) this Sketch. Here's Sketch #218.

And here's my literal take on it.

A strip of patterned paper was adhered to a Stone Gray card base. The
sentiment was white embossed and ink distressed with two colors of Distress
Oxide inks, trimmed into a banner and adhered to the card. Some pearls
finished off the card.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of my teammates interpreted
the sketch, and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, April 27th
and as a winner, you could be joining us on a future sketch!

MFT A-maze-ing Card Kit Release

It's time! You may now purchase the A-maze-ing Card Kit in the MFT Store!
This is such a fun kit, perfect for kids' cards, and the "kid" in all of us.

For today's project, I decided to make a shaker card with the kit. Note that all
products found in the kit are listed in bold print.

Razzle Berry, Orange Fizz, and Wild Cherry card stock were cut with the
rounded rectangle element from Blueprints 31. A circle was cut in the center
of the Razzle Berry panel, and the panel was lined up over the Orange Fizz panel.

The maze was stamped through the opening and white embossed. The clear
shaker pouch was filled with sequins and lined up over the maze. The Razzle
Berry panel was then adhered over the Orange Fizz panel.

The sentiment was gold embossed on the panel, and a Wild Cherry frame
was adhered to the panel. The card was finished off with die cut stars.

Grab your kit now in the MFT Store! It's a unique kit that's fun to assemble,
and equally fun for the recipient! Thanks for stopping by during the
Card Kit countdown and happy shopping!
