MFT September Release Countdown--Day 5

Are you ready? It's countdown time to My Favorite Things September Release!
All new products will go on sale September 1st at 10pm EST.

Today I'm sharing floral goodness starting with Delicate Pretty Poppies, an outline
version of the previously released Pretty Poppies both designed by Lisa Johnson.

The new Distressed Stripes Background was stamped on a piece of Grout Gray
card stock with the same color ink for a tone on tone look. The piece was die cut
with the new Die-namics Stitched Cover Up Vertical Companion, a fun way to frame
your designs and sentiments. Dimensional adhesive was used to adhere the frame
to a Grout Gray card base.

Three poppies and leaves were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut,
then adhered in the smaller opening. The sentiment from Thanks So Very Much
fit perfectly in the larger opening on the bottom. 

My second card features the new Etched Flower Background. I white embossed
the image on watercolor card stock and used a dauber and dye inks to color in
the entire background. The panel was then cut with the rectangle element

The sentiment was gold embossed on a strip of vellum and wrapped around the panel.
The card was finished off with some shiny gold sequins.

Stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for links to participating
designers, and leave a comment there to be eligible for a $75 gift voucher to shop

CAS(E) this Sketch 138

Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 138 brought to you by Chrissy.

And here's my take on it.

I masked off an angled rectangle and ink distressed with two dye inks
and spattered some water over the surface. When it was dried, I stamped
the sentiment and did some camouflage die cutting with a butterfly die.

The butterfly was popped up with several butterfly die cuts and
I finished off the card with coordinating sequins.

Stop by CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your project(s) by Thursday, September 3rd,
and as a winner, you'll be invited to join us on a future sketch!

Aloha, Hero Arts!

As all good things must come to an end, so has my term with Hero Arts as a
Web Design Team member. It's been a great ride and I'm thrilled that I was chosen
for the team and thank Hero Arts for a fun filled year!

Here's a recap of some projects that I created during my term.

My fave has got to be the last card with the best sentiment that says it all:


Thank you, Hero Arts, for all that you did and all that you continue to do for 
the stamping and crafting community. Looking forward to your new, improved website
next month and to see what's yet to come! ♥

CAS(E) this Sketch 137

Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 137, compliments of N@ Ali.

Here's my take on it.

I stamped, colored, and die cut the adorable MFT penguin, and stamped the
sentiment on a banner. The base card and wonky panel were stamped with
BG Burlap Background in matching colors for a tone on tone look.
A few enamel dots finished off the card.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how my teammies interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, August 27th
and if you're chosen as the winner, you'll be invited to join us on a future challenge!
