MFT | Guest Designer Day One

Hello there, I am so excited to be Guest Designing for My Favorite Things this month. If you have followed me for a while, you know how much I love this company, so I am very honoured to be asked to guest with them.

My first card today uses the new Mon Cheri stamp set. I thought it would make a great, simple scene card. I started off by stamping the girl, masked her off and then stamped the Eiffel tower. The panel was then coloured using Copic Markers, adding a little Wink of Stella to the girl's bag and scarf.

The image was added to a white A2 card base and then a frame cut using the largest of the Rectangle Frame Die-Namics was added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added the sentiment on to flag and popped this under the frame on the left side.


For my next card, I used the new Paris Skyline Die-Namic die. I started off by cutting this from black cardstock and then added a liberal amount of Wink of Stella on it for some added sparkle and shine.

I took a white 5x5" card base and blended on some Distress Inks. I used Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire. Once dried, I stamped the Merci sentiment from the Mon Cherie stamp set using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and then heat set.

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I die cut a circle using the largest of the Circle Stax 2 Die-Namics. This panel was then popped on to the card with foam tape.
