MFT & Friends - June 2020 Release


Hello there! I'm happy to be joining MFT & friends to help showcase the awesome June release.  There's so many great summertime themed products this month. I have made three cards to share you all today.  

You can find all the new goodies here in the MFT shop.  

...and for even more project inspiration with the June release check out the MFT blog.  

My first card takes you under the sea and features the adorable images from Best Fins.  


I've set the scene with an ink blended ocean backdrop using Blueprint Sketch, Tumbled Glass, and Cracked Pistachio Oxide inks.  I Copic colored the images with some bright fun colors.  I framed up the scene using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames Die-namics



This next card features a very fun new Die-namics set called Baby Shark. I've also used the new Ocean Motion Die-namics on this slimline design to create the wave cut outs.  To accentuate the waves, I've underlined them with a white gel pen.  


The stamped part of the greeting is from Sharky Sentiments. I then used the Impact Alphabet Die-namics to create large letters to spell out the word "chum". I backed the grey letters with rainbow striped letters.  The rainbow strip pattern is from a new paper pad called Fun In the Sun


For my last card for today, I've created a fun beach scene with stamps from an appropriately named set - Sunny Vibes.  


To create the background, I started by using a combo of Tea Dye & Antique Linen Oxide inks for the sandy beach area.  I splattered the sand generously with brown and white paint.  I masked off the top third of the background panel and brushed on Blueprint Sketch for the water.  I then very lightly applied the blue color to the top of the panel for a clear blue sky effect.  


I then Copic colored the images from Sunny Vibes and added them to the scene to complete the look of a nice relaxing day at the beach.

Reverse Confetti 7th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be joining the Confetti Crew and friends for this special blog hop celebrating Reverse Confetti's 7th birthday.  

You'll find all the new goodies here in the RC shop.

Your next stop on the hop is Libby Hickson.  You can find the full hop list further down in this post in case you've missed anyone. 

I'm sharing a card that combines one of the new stamp sets along with a special free with purchase set.  


I have used an adorable new stamp set called Corgi Cuties to create a notecard that will be sure to spread some cheer and encouragement.  The cute pup, food bowl, bone, and sentiments come from Corgi Cuties.  

The hello friend rainbow image comes from an awesome little set that is free with purchase - 

Below you can see all the Distress Oxide and Copic colors I've used to create this happy scene. Please excuse my messy Copic markers... they are in desperate need of a good cleaning!
