Creative Construction....


Hello there!  Today I am stopping in with a card for this month's Creative Construction with Blueprints over at MFT.  Blueprints feature many innovative designs that make it so easy to add interest to your projects without a lot of unnecessary effort. Frames that feature multiple openings allow you to compartmentalize and feature numerous images and sentiments without the monotony involved in aligning a variety of dies. This month, we’re shining a spotlight on Blueprints that include these fantastic elements.

I have a fun halloween card today, showcasing the frame from Blueprint 29 and the new set called Spooky Sweets.

Print

I die cut 5 frames and stacked them up together for some dimension.  For the background, I did a little ink blending on each of the negatives that came out after cutting the frame die.  I stamped the sentiment ahead of time too.  Next, I adhered that frame panel on the front of the card.  After stamping and die cutting all the pumpkins....including a black pumpkin attached behind with foam tape, I added each pumpkin to the frame with more foam tape.  This card is definitely a 3D card!

There will be lots more Blueprint Framed creations to see over at the MFT blog.  Head over there for a list of links.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Have a great day!

Moments Inked Newsletter...

Moments Inked Banner
Hey there planner friends!  I am here today with the Moments Inked Newsletter for Papertrey Ink.  I have something fun to share today.  I have been seeing lots of foiled planner inserts on Pinterest and I realized how easy it would be to make with some supplies we already have on hand.  First off, here is my faux foiled planner insert....

I used the  large Basic Page Die, Paper Clippings: Oh Happy Day die with the Gold Foil Adhesive sheets to create this fun look.  (All supplies linked below)

Here is a way to make it lay flat, easily and quickly.

I die cut the intricate die and then grabbed the Press n Seal to pick up the die.

I flipped it over and peeled off the adhesive backing, while the main part of the die stayed stuck to the press n seal.  

IMG_8962_edited-1

I used a push pin to weed out all the centers of the die, before laying it down to the large basic page.  And that is it!  Super simple and such a fun, and trendy look!

I thought I would share my set up for next week, while I was at it.  I just love the Planner Banner Stamps and die.  Such an easy way to keep track of activities.

I used the layout colors for the month of August.  There is a page on the front inside cover of your planner that shows all the PTI colors used for each month.  For my daughter, I used Berry Sorbet and for my son, I used Simply Chartreuse.  A color coordinated system helps keep everything organized for the week.

On a clear dashboard, I have my to do list stamped out on the 3x6 white post it notes, available at PTI.  

IMG_8978_edited-1

Next, I have my grocery list ready for the week, as well.  And one more shot of the end of the week....

IMG_8979_edited-1

After years of planning, and decorating pages, and using stickers, I have found that I like to keep it simple.  I still use this green pencil so my entries are easy to erase if needed.  The banners are also removable so I can change things around.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post!  I am so glad you stopped in.  Hope you have a great week!

MFT Chibi Light Up Card...



Hey there!  I am here today with a fun post.  A little MFT and a little Chibi.  Have you heard of Chibitronics?  Its a fun element to add to your card....lights!  

MFT Chibi Lights

I used the Make a Wish stamp set and dies to create this simple card front.  I added the Chibi lights in behind to make a circuit that lights up the candles.

The lights lay behind and below each of the flames.

And then with a press of the card front....they light up!

MFT August 2016 Card Kit

I did another impression using all the dies and then cut out the panel with the scalloped stitched rectangle.  I added in some silver thread and then topped it off with the new free with purchase die, "many thanks".  I did some ink blending before cutting out the sentiment die to give just a little pop of color.
