MFT Stamps – Magical Friends Cards (Guest Post)

Hello!

Today I have two super cute cards for my blog readers featuring the new dragon set by Birdie Brown for MFT Stamps! It’s called “Magical Friends” and I am soo in love with it. Eep!

I made both cards for The Foiled Fox and you’ll find more detailed info about them on their blog!

Here’s a short overview:

The first card is a standard A2 size. It has a watercolored background, a white scallop background layered on top and the images are watercolored, too. I chose contrasting colors for the girl’s hair and dress to make her visually pop!

I wanted to stack up on birthday cards, so I took the sentiment from an older Birdie Brown stamp set which says “Here’s a birthday flyby”!

A2 SIZED BIRTHDAY CARD:

The little girl on the dragon is my favorite of all images, isn’t it adorable?!!
Supplies A2 sized card:

  • MFT Stamps – BB Magical Friends stamps & dies, BB Magical Dragons stamps, Dainty Scallop Cover-Up Die-namics
  • Winsor & Newton – Watercolour Markers
  • Strathmore – Bristol Smooth Paper Pad
  • Lawn Fawn – Everyday Sentiment Banner die
  • Versafine – Onyx Black Ink
  • Sakura – White Gel Pen (for coloring details)
  • Sakura – Black Glaze Pen (on the eyes)

 

For the second card, I wanted to make a large, slimline card that allows me to create a little story … The “Magical Friends” set has all these great Fairytale sentiments in it and book reading images! So I stamped up three different little scenes on die-cut squares. The first and third are supposed to be a made-up Fairytale story and the second one shows the little girl and her dragon as they are reading the book together. In their Fairytale they both have different looks and colors! 🙂

Ink Blended Card with MFT Stamps

Hello! 🙂

I hope your New Year is off to a good start!

Today I am quickly dropping in with an ink blended card that I made yesterday! Aqua and lime green is a color combo that I find so fresh and beautiful everytime I see it on handmade cards but I don’t use it often enough myself. So when I saw the latest MFT Color Challenge (see banner down below) I knew I wanted to play along. For my design I got inspired by the current “CASE this sketch” sketch which I found super cool.

For my background I used My Favorite Things “Homespun Stitch Lines Die-namics” and then I did some ink blending over it with a light mint, aqua/turquoise and lime green ink. I also added splatters with those inks for some texture.

HERE’S MY INK BLENDED CARD:

Have an amazing week! ♥
