MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Contest: Innovation Master

 Hey my lovely friends! I am back with my last entry to the MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Contest. This is my take on the Innovation Master category. I had such fun creating this! As always when creating with my beloved MFT supplies :)

This project requires some more photos, so here we go:

I created a matchbox pop-up card. The base was trimmed from white cardstock, I first designed it on a piece of paper, thought about the measurements I wanted to have and used a scoring board for making this. Before assembling the box, I inked the pieces with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide ink. For the panel on the front of my box, I used the Micro Cloud Edges Stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. The grass is die-cut using the Outside the Box Grass Die-namics. The images from BB Adorable Adventures are all colored with Copic markers and fussy-cut. 

On the inside, I used the same grass die-namics and just trimmed off the edges. To the backs of the grass edges, I adhered folded strips from thick acetate to make the edges move when opening and closing the box.

This fun little girl makes me smile! Here comes a compilation of the card:

And I made a video to show this in action:

I hope you like my fun matchbox card! Thank you so much for visiting and have a beautiful day/weekend!


MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge Guest Designer

 Hello to you! It's another wonderful Wednesday and the new MFT Wednesday Sketch is up on the MFT Blog! Here is this week's sketch:

For my card, I chose to use a slimline format, because I wanted to add many images to it. This is my take:

I first stamped all images onto white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers and die-cut the elements with the matching dies. Now I lightly inked the front of the white card base with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and adhered the trees and the reindeer. I trimmed a strip from cardstock, inked it, notched the end and adhered it. After I had added the Santa and his pile to the card, I stamped the sentiment.

I think this year, we've all been REALLY good and would deserve such a big pile of presents, don't you agree? 
I hope you'll join the challenge this week, I'd love to see your take :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy day!


MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Challenge: Clean & Simple Genius

 Hello lovely friends! Here I am again with another card for the MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Challenge. This time, I made a card for the Clean & Simple Genius category. 

Without further ado, here comes my take:

I first stamped all the cute Pumped-Up Numbers with Grout Gray ink onto my white card base and added highlights with a white gel pen. Now I stamped the adorable hedgehog from SY Hooray Kind of Day, fussy-cut it and adhered it to the card. I stamped the 13 with pink Distress Ink, added shadows and highlights, fussy-cut the elements and adhered the balloons to the card with foam tape. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from SY Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes onto a strip of pink cardstock, notched the edges and adhered it with foam tape. Finally, I added my beloved mini star sequins.

This little hedgehog is so cute! I hope you like it as much as I do. Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
