MFT Blueprints 6 Holiday Tags

Today I wanted to share some Christmas gift tags which I have been inspired to create using the MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 6 die set. I have entered these on the MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints-Holiday Tags Challenge. 

The timing of this challenge is just perfect for me because my Christmas greeting cards are all complete and now it’s time to create Christmas gift tags ready for wrapping gifts and placing them under the tree. My Christmas tree colours are always white, silver and aqua- gorgeous Queensland tropical coastal colours so the gift wrapping is also colour coordinated.

Pearlescent Beautiful Lady

Life has imposed itself on me in recent weeks and I am finally glad to have the opportunity to create a card.  I have been inspired by Erum’s stunning card for the Altenew August 2017 Inspiration Challenge.

The first thing that struck me when I saw this card, was to imagine how beautiful it must be in real life, ahh the frustrations of photography. I could imagine the glow of the fabulous metallic paints and so I used this to guide my card creation.

I mixed pearlescent medium with Faber Castell Gelato’s for all of the water coloured flower and background painting. Additional layers of bling were added using diamond dust glued to the centre of the hydrangea flowers, Wink of Stella on the gold heat embossed diagonal striped border and Smooch Glitz on the die cut thanks sentiment. Due to the limitations of photography I will have to leave it to your imagination to add the sparkle and layered dimension, especially the diamond dust glued to the flower centres-I just love this product.

MFT A-maze-ing Flower interactive card

Today I have been playing with the MFT Flower Shaker die set and have created an interactive maze card using the colours from the MFT Color Challenge #73 -tropical teal, coral crush, gravel grey and black.

I began by creating a soft coral crush watercolour background, a deeper coral flower petal paper which I embellished with Minc reactive mist and opal foil and a soft teal watercolour background for the leaves.

Mailing Hugs

Today I have been playing with my newly arrived MFT June card kit and decided to create a card for the MFT Color Challenge #72, shades of 2 blues, red and charcoal.

Since I live in the sub tropics I just couldn’t resist the bird of paradise stamp to sit on the mail slot and of course the MFT bold cover ups background die just seemed to compliment the mail slot die. It doesn’t show up in the photography but I love how the MFT brushed silver card looks so much like a real brushed stainless steel letterbox.

Hooray! Summer Holidays

Today I decided to play with my new Avery Elle Birthday Bus image and create a card for the CAS Watercolor Summer June 2017 Challenge and the HLS June Watercolour Anything Goes with optional masking Challenge.

The birthday bus needed to be made into a summer holidays bus so with a little masking here and there I had the little animals all going to the seaside for summer holidays. In Australia with the majority of the population living near the coast line then summer is definitely all about the seaside.

hooray

Kindness Droplets

Happy me has just received an air freighted shipment of June release MFT products and I decided that I just had to play with one of the new goodies and create a card for the MFT Color Challenge #71. It was hard to select but I seemed to be drawn to creating a graphic type of card using the Color Droplets stamp set and co-ordinating die.

Harkening back to my old mathematics days where I learnt that a droplet is a circle topped by a triangle, I decided to place the droplets on an embossed circle background and I also just couldn’t resist giving the droplets a stitched on look.

Stamps: MFT Color Drops, MFT Kind Words

Gold Dust Magic

Today I was inspired by the fabulous new June mood board over at Scrapbook Boutique, Gold is the new Black.  As soon as I saw the board I imagined fairy gold dust and funnily enough sitting out on my desk was the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors pallette, along with a “just acquired” star stack die which was just begging to be heat foiled. So the creative process just seemed to all fall into place.
