Stamp-peding My Way Through Life

MFT Super Star Card Contest

Robin TharaldsonComment

In case you missed it MFT is having a Super Star Card Contest with a GREAT prize package! When I saw the post for MFT's contest I thought this is just the inspiration for me to get designing again!

My first card uses MFT's Fall Foliage stamp and die set.  I added a sheet from the Tribal Prints paper pack onto an A2 top fold card base. I then added the Die-namics Striped Sentiment Strip Cover Up to my card front by applying glue to the edges of the die cut only. To add more dimension I like to stamp images onto patterned paper, in this case the same paper as my background. The foliage was stamped using MFT's Premium Dye Ink Cubes that I received in the Flashy Florals Card Kit. Love those colors, so Fall!

The foliage was cut out with the coordinating die set and tucked into the background die cut. I added liquid pearls to the berry branches and a simple twine bow. 

The "thankful" die is from the Fresh Cut Flowers card kit and was cut from a sheet of Copper Sparkle Card Stock. For dimension the word was adhered to another die cut and then added to the card front. The simple sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set and was embossed using copper embossing powder. I finished the card with a few sequins.

I cut the background for my next card from MFT's Off the Grid paper pack using the large background die from Die-namics Blueprints 27.  The background was added to my card base with foam tape.

I "made" my cake using Die-namics Stitched Mini Scallop Squares and Die-namics Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangles. The layers were cut from a pearlized card stock and I added silver liquid pearls to each scallop using a small stylus. With these two die sets you can make stacked cakes ANY size you need!!  I wrapped silver thread around the cake layer and added a simple bow.

Happy Anniversary, from the Essential Sentiments stamp set, was stamped onto Translucent Vellum using VersaMark ink and silver embossing powder. The little silver hearts were left over from another project and were cut from Die-namics Blueprints 11. I added the sentiment strip to the card front with a spot of glue behind each heart!!  A sprinkle of dew drops finished the card.

My last card features the LJD Birthday Greetings stamp set. I covered an A2 card base with paper from the Sensational Stitched Flowers card kit! Love the kraft backgrounds in the pack!

The banners were cut out using the Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX. The large brown banner was stamped using Arrow Ends Background Builder stamp and Black Licorice Hybrid Ink . My leaves were made using Die-namics Layered Leaves. The solid leaf was cut from a Cherry Adhesive-Backed Sheet and then colored using Distress Inks. The outline of the leaves were cut from a copper card stock.

Both sentiments were stamped with MFT Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and then the banners were added to the card front along with the leaves.

To finish the card a copper strip cut from Die-namics Blueprints 15 and two copper buttons were added. This makes a great masculine birthday card!
