Hugs across the miles

Hello everyone,
I am back with another inspiration for TTC3.
Still on the MFT kick! :D
I am trying to use all of my MFT stamps that I have been collecting ahem "buying"over the years! My obsession with them will never end.. So for today, I have another card for The Twisted Challenges #3 - Go Bold and Replace an Alphabet

My card is slightly smaller than 5x7. I used Smooth White cardstock from Letz Craft. I am addicted to the thick white cardstock they offer. Used a Simon Says stamp postcard edge die, to cut the blue mat.
On a white cardstock, I drew black border with copic marker (yes, that's a faux layer) .
Cut my sentiment 3 times from Blue cardstock, using MFT hugs die.
Stacked and colored them to give a ombre look. Added shimmer with Spectrum noir shimmer pens.
Stamped and colored my images on Xpress it cardstock, colored with copics and fussy cut it.

Hope you can see the shimmer here..

Also I couldn't stop at one inspiration, since I had a couple of images colored and cut, I decided to make a Tag.

White base again from Letz Craft, tag die from DCAM.
Used MFT sun-rays stencil for the sun, using squeezed lemonade DI.
MFT grass die, colored the green cardstock with dark green copic to give a little contrast on the layer at the back.
MFT you die, cut 3 times and stacked. Added shimmer
Image stamped and colored with copics.
I just added a black cardstock mat to match the black bold words.

Well, I hope you do join in our challenge this month, there is big prize of 1000Rs. voucher from LETZ CRAFT!
Last day is 31st Aug, not too far away!

Till the next challenge,

Donut you know..

Its the 1st of August and time for another Twisted Challenge on our TTC blog! Well today I have my favorite Donuts on card for you!

This month we are going Bold on the sentiments and replacing an alphabet with an image!

I am still hungover on my MFT stamps..they are my one true love! So I decided to combine the MFT sketch challenge #395 and TTC3# into one card. 

I started by creating a soft background by repeatedly stamping the sentiment. I used Memento angel pink ink  to stamp the background on my white card stock. ( This is the smooth white cardstock from Letzcraft and I tell you it is divinely smooth! and amazing thickness!)

To create the donuts, I cut 2 same circles from Lil inker Double stitched dies, one in pink and one in brown. I freehand cut the pink circle to resemble frosting. Stamped sprinkles on it in brown ink. 

 Glued the Donut on the stamped background and mounted that on my 5x7 precut cardbase from Letzcraft.
I wanted some contrast between the stamped background and card base, so I ran a copic marker around the stamped background and created a faux mat.

I first stamped the mini donut and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the Bold Sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and glued the mini donut on the letter O.
The 2nd part of the sentiment was stamped on a thin banner and glued below the bold sentiment.

If you have any questions, do leave me a comment and I will get back to you.

Thank you for dropping by my blog and hope you also join us in the TTC challenge this month!
