Touch of Vintage - MFT Stamps

Card Design Superstar

Hi again! this is my 2nd entry in the challenge.  I decided to do something really different than CAS to highlight how versatile the images are.  So here is my vintage shabby MFT Superstar Challenge card.

I Do!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Hi crafters!  Monica here with my second project for CutCardStock.  Today I am sharing a wedding card I made for my friends daughter using some white CutCardStock and Stardream Metallic Silver paper.

Supplies Used:
Before I begin to explain how my project was created I want to explain a few things that I look for.  First, to me what is key is the durability of the cardstock being used and the paper CutCardStock carries has such a nice thickness to it.  Which is instrumental in how long your creations will last and how they will uphold in simple everyday wear and tear. So if your looking to make something that you want to last over time you really want to choose the perfect cardstock and CutCardStock is the product for you!

So to start I chose a die from Sue Wilson Dies and it has 3 pieces to it.  So what I did was offset my colors starting with the white cardstock and then layering the next piece in Stardream Metallic Silver 
This is how it looks when all the pieces are cut and layered.  To glue it all together I used my Glue Dots which works beautifully.
For the front I simply added some decorative elements: flowers are Creative Memories, I used a die from Memory Box, a hat pin and some pearl beads.  Finally topped of with a stone like sentiment that says "I Do" and she loved it!  Now to make 50 more!

I hope everyone enjoyed my post for today and thanks so much for stopping by!

Tiger & Lily

Hi crafters! Monica here with a shaker card using a stamp from Waffle Flower called  Tiger & Lily  with the matching Tiger & Lily dies.  I then used some paper from Echo Park - We Are Family 6x6 pad to make the card the blues in this set looked like water to me and I love the fun color scheme.

One Pen Blends!

Friday, September 11, 2015
Hi everyone! This month we were asked to create something using only one pen. I thought to myself hmm… only one pen okay this is going to be challenging. Well, it was not! I used my Cool Gray: CG8 pen to create this card.

Materials used: Chameleon Color Tones Pens Cool Grey (CG8),Prima stamped image, Spellbinders dies and pink and white cardstock.
Using one pen with Chameleons is a breeze due to your ability to infuse, this allows you to get the different color variations.

Just pop the mixing chamber on the nib of the pen and infuse with toning medium for between 5 and 40 seconds – the longer you leave the chamber on the nib the longer the blend will be.
I hope everyone enjoyed my one pen project.
We certainly enjoyed Monic’s one pen project, what would you color if you only had one Chameleon Pen?

Just Listen!
