Pink Fresh Studio Beautiful Branch

Hi Peeps

Today, I'm sharing a floral card I made using the fabulous Beautiful Branch stamp and die set from Pink Fresh Studio.  I coloured and die cut the image, then created a background by smooshing Distress Oxides onto some Bristol Smoosh, then die cut the panel using a scalloped rectangle die.

I adhered the image with 3D foam pads, then die cut a 'hello' word in gold mirri, backing it with white cardstock. I added the word to the panel - this time without foam pads.  Lastly, I added a few gems and a tiny bit of glitter into the centre of the flowers.

Card Info:

I love cherry blossom - I have a huge tree in my garden that blooms every May.  Well it's pink - so what more can I say???

MFT You Bring Sunshine

Hi There...

OK - it's been an MFT sort of week!  My last card of the week is another image from the You Bring Sunshine set (I'm secretly hoping for sunshine here in the UK!)

This little guy is so cute clutching his flowers to give for someone's birthday.  I coloured and fussy cut him, then die cut a stitched rectangle.  I added a small sentiment then adhered the bear with foam pads.  I then added the panel to a dotty card panel and then onto my card base.

MFT You Bring Sunshine

Hi Peeps..

Today my card is using a newish stamp set from MFT called You Bring Sunshine.  I decided to keep it relatively clean and simple, so I did a bit of Distress Ink blending onto a card panel, then coloured, fussy cut and adhered (with foam pads) the images you see. 

Finally, I added a tiny sentiment from the MFT Itty Bitty Basic sentiment set, then added the panel to my card base.

MFT Love You a Bunch

Hi Lovelies...

Well I have to own up - I've been quiet a little while - though it's not because I've not been making... I've been making a LOT, but not getting around to putting them online.  Don't know why - I really need to schedule a slot to sit at my PC and get them uploaded!  Anyways.. I now have a few to upload - so here's the first..

It's another older stamp from my stash - the set is called Love You a Bunch - I so love these little girlies, and really enjoy colouring and fussy cutting them.  I added some daisies to her dress with a white gel pen.

I created a smooshed background for one side of the card, then adhered the girlie slightly overlapping the smooshed side.

Card Info:
Image - MFT Love You a Bunch stamp set
Die - Pretty Pink Posh Borders Set 2
Smooshing - Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides
Colouring - Copics

Hair - E23/25
Dress - R81/83/85
Flowers R30/83 Y38
Grounding T0/1
Gold Glitter
White Gel Pen for daisies on dress

I really enjoyed making this card - I didn't add a sentiment as I felt it could be used for lots of different occasions - or just to make someone's day!

MFT So Much Love

Hi Lovelies...

I've been shopping in my stash again - and have dug out some MFT stamps that haven't yet been used - including this little girlie called So Much Love.  If you look closely, you can see she's doing the heart shape with her hands - which I do with my grandchildren to say I love you...  they do it back to me and my heart fills every time!

For my card, I used a Daisy Background stencil and blended rainbow Distress Oxides through.. I liked the effect.  Then, to be quite honest, I'd coloured this little girlie previously, and in the chaos on my desk, she just had landed on the daisy panel, and I realised how good she looked there!

Sooo  I adhered her with foam pads, giving some dimension.  I haven't put a sentiment on there, as I really didn't think it needed one - the heart says it all.

Card Info:
Image - MFT So Much Love (not sure if it's still available)
Stencil - Waffle Flower Daisy Background
Distress Oxides - Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed,
Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Prize Ribbon and Wilted Violet
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/11
Dress - BG10/11/13
Hair and Shoes - E21/23
White Gel Pen

I think you'll be seeing more of this girlie and her friends in the near future, there's a little pile of them on my desk awaiting their time in the spotlight!

Hope you like...

Big hugs
