Happy Friday! Today I am up on the MFT Blog sharing tips, ideas, and mini-projects using the new Hybrid Inks! I had a ton of fun creating and let me tell you, the fun has only just begun, as I have some really great techniques to share with you in the near future!
I am pretty excited to share these cards with you today! They were stamped using the new Storybook stamp from Avery Elle. This set is pretty special because my friend, and fellow Go-To-Gal Heather Campbell drew these images!
Completely sweet, I love these images. And all the little details that go along with them! Like the little birds I used on the banner. And yes, that is color pencil I used to color the image. I have a bit of a kick going on with them right now. I am terribly rusty and need to keep practicing! :)
The image is layered on Baby Mine Boy paper from Carta Bella and thin muslin that was die cut. And say hello to my new obsession, wood dots! Swoon!
I finished the card off by adding a smaller gold butterfly and an enamel dot to the center of the largest and middle butterfly. The sentiment is just perfect, look at that font! Its from Summer Garden, a new stamp set. I stamped it with the new MFT Hybrid Black Licorice Ink. Hellooo new favorite black ink! More about that later this week as I will have a review of the inks, plus lots of ideas on how to use them!
And one last thing, just so you know, I am now an affiliate with Simon Says Stamp. Its a great store with great products. Use the text links in my posts, photo links at the bottom of my posts, or the button on the right side bar of my blog to help you shop. I would greatly appreciate it! :)
Welcome back! Who had fun shopping? Well, if you haven't had the chance, be sure and head over to the MFT Store and check out all the amazing new products being released this month, along with those new Hybrid Inks! Today half the team is sharing fun projects we didn't get to share earlier in the week. Tomorrow, the other half will share. The MFT Blog has all the details.
One last touch, these cute tag shapes from Die-namics Blueprints 14. To make them fit (because I had already adhered the other cardstock panel) I simply cut one tag in half and used both sides. The heart is from Beautiful Baby and was stamped in Bubblegum Pink Ink. The Pink Lemonade was just too subtle.
Forgive my unusual photography today, I am going through a photography crisis. I haven't been happy with the quality of my photos, so I am changing things up and getting a permanent lighting set up in my crafty space. This didn't work out too bad, so I may be trying this again.
