MFT Deep Dive + 2





Hello and happy Father's Day.  Today, I pulled out some MFT stamps and played along with some of their challenges.

First up is a card with these adorable mice, and I was inspired by the MFT Sketch #494, the MFT Color #143 and the MFT Birthday Project challenges.  (I think my lights were all wrong, because there are some crazy shadows on this photo--sorry about that).  I rotated the sketch 90 degrees, then cut an oval out of my front panel and set it back inside, and also used score lines on the sides of my oval...there is so much going on with my focal point, I wanted the other elements of the sketch to be more subtle.








Another birthday party on this next card, this one starring MFT Birthday Bear and his big pile of gifts.  I am entering this card at the MFT Color #143 and the MFT Birthday Project challenges, as well as Addicted to Stamps and More #394: Clean and Simple.








My little hippo and little bear got together for a small birthday party in the corner of my next card.  They invited their little birdie friend to join in...who says 3's a crowd?  I did a little bit of masking on my bear, to get the balloon to come from behind.  I am entering this card at the MFT Birthday Project challenges, AAA Cards #168: One Corner & Optional Twist Masking, and CAS Colours & Sketches #375.






My last birthday party features cocktails, and it is for my daughter who is turning 21 next month.  She is really hoping to be able to go to a bar and order a cocktail on her birthday....if we are still stuck at home, this card will be her birthday cocktail party.  I am also entering this card at the MFT Color #143 and the MFT Birthday Project challenges.





Enough with birthdays, my next card is inspired by the challenge at Less is More #422: Solid and Outline.  I used PTI Fresh Bouquet stamps, which have an outline and a filler to make my card.  I am also playing along at The Paper Players #496: Clean and Simple Thank You.







I have a friend whose pup recently had some pretty major surgery.  I made this card for my dog Sherlock to send her to wish her a speedy recovery.  I was inspired by the sketch at Retro Rubber #137.










Thanks for Visiting

  4. I love these, but I think my favorite is the poor bandaged dog card. It is so sweet to send a card from your dog to another.
