I'd Jump Through a PUDDLE for you

Hello friends,
I have a card to share with you all today!
I decided to play with the current MFT challenge, a perfect reason to play with my this cuties. I stamped the image using black memento ink on Crafters companion ultra smooth white cardstock and colored it with my beloved Copics and cut the image out using scissor. The background is made using MFT Houndstooth stencil and memento Dandelion ink. The sentiment is white heat embossed on MFT Electric Red cardstock using Alabaster ultra fine embossing powder.

Brutus Monroe - Thermoweb Blog Hop

Hello friends, I am super excited for todays blog post.. We at Brutus Monroe is collaborating with Therm O Web and we will have lots of cards and ideas be shared on our Brutus Monroe inspiration blog, So don't forget to check it out daily.
Today our whole team is doing a fun blog hop with lots of amazing inspirations so join us because there is a giveaway as well which you do not want to miss...


I have created two cards for todays hop, for the first one I used the new foil color called shattered glass on their new Designer Toner Sheets called Distressed Lines along with the super cute Brutus Monroe Big Top stamp set.

First I cut the toner sheet down with my paper trimmer and cut a piece of the Shattered Glass foil slightly larger than my toner sheet. I place the foil shiny side up, sandwiched them between my parchment paper sheet and ran a hot iron over it, yes it works it is the frugal way but I will say get a laminator for perfectly amazing result. The toner sheets is then adhered directly to a white card base using Therm O Web Sticky Tape Runner . The images are all stamped using Raven ink and colored using Copics Then die-cut it out using Stitched Oval die, the sentiment is stamped using Wagon ink. All the oval die cuts are adhered using Therm O Web 3D white foam squares.
Here is a close up:

For my second card, I used the foil color in Green on another new Designer Toner Sheets called Floral Sketch along with the super cute Brutus Monroe Tea Time stamp set.
Images are stamped using Raven ink and colored using Prisma color pencils. Again the toner sheets is adhered directly to a white card base using Therm O Web Sticky Tape Runner and the colored image is adhered using Therm O Web 3D white foam squares.

Hope you liked my card, here is the hop list for you:

You'll Always Be AMAZING

Hello friends, My last card for MFT's crafty version of the Olympics called the Creative Olympics. Their fourth and the last event is Speed Cardmaking, this event is all about speed, we get exactly 20 mins to complete our card.
This was the most difficult task for me because these days one card takes about couple of hours to few days to complete, all thanks to my little munchkin. This one was made with just seconds to spare, I was literally hustling thru the whole process and my dining table was under a crafty tsunami mess...
Here is my card:

I love how it turned out... A very simple card, I used MFT Sun Rays stencil and used yellow and orange ink to do the ink blending, then with a black pen I made a outline. The image is from MFT BB Super Hero which is stamped using black ink on Crafters Companion white cardstock and colored using Copics because no time to color using pencils and gamsol shading. I wanted to use my Prisma colors for shading but had no time. Image is adhered using foam squares and I stamped the sentiment before adhering the image.

Birthdays Rock and so Do You

Hello friends, I am back with another card for MFT's crafty version of the Olympics called the Creative Olympics. Their third event is Crafty Biathlon, the challenge is to select one option from each Technique and Card Type column and combine it into one card!
Here is my card:

I combined dry embossing technique with slide card type. I used Houndstooth stencil and dry embossed it directly on an A2 card base and then lightly sponged some blue ink. Then I made a grassy hill side border out of white cardstock with my craft knife and sponged some green ink to it, once dry I stamped the sentiment. The images are all stamped on white card stock and colored using Prisma color pencils. The learnt this hidden slider mechanism from Jennifer McGuire's video. The pull out tab is also out of white cardstock and sponged some green ink and then inked another sentiment from this set.
Here is how it looks with tab pulled out...
 And here is a close up of the cuties and also you can see the dry embossing clearly in this pic..

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by!!
Hugs,
Chitra
