MFT Stamps Pure Innocence ‘Start Each Day with a Whee’ Swing Card…

Hi everyone! When this cute gal came out awhile back I knew I had to have her!  We have one granddaughter that especially loves to swing and she loves cards too!  I love it when the idea for personalizing a card comes easy!

Here’s my version of the swinging ‘whee’ girl in action…she’s cute!  You can see it a lot better on You Tube, HERE

I basically followed MFT’s video but I used dies I already owned.  I added a tree trunk from the Memory Box Weeping Willow Tree Cutting Plate but I see it’s discontinued.  There are other tree dies though that would work… like this one HERE.  You could also hand cut one really easy.  I haven’t seen anyone else using a tree trunk but I think it makes it look more realistic… when I first saw the cards made up, I thought weird, green clouds! lol

I used poppystamps Stitched Cloudline dies and die cut them and the grass borders from Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock.  I’m really happy with how they turned out!

I stamped her in the MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and die cut her then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers. Hair E21, E43, 44, 47, Skin E000, YR000, E00, E01, R20, Shirt E02, 04, Shorts B 91, 93, 95, 97, Shoes T1,3, 5, Swing seat and rope E20’s, white space between the swing ropes is colored with B21.

I stamped the sentiment from the set in the MISTI with Black Archival ink.

My cardbase is Gumball cardstock from Bazzill or Taylored Expressions has it also. Links below…

Thanks for ‘swinging’ by today! Holler if you have any questions!

Here’s some links to stuff I used to make this card…thank you so much for supporting me and my blog!  I appreciate it!

You Light up my Life!

I would be the “reindeer lights” in this household…for some reason I always have had that job!  I should count how many times I walk around the tree some year!  Hopefully this year we’ll get one that will stay standing up! haha (remember last year’s photo of it taking a nap! ugh)

I love this cute little Reindeer Lights image!  A new Animal Crackers stamp illustrated by Christine in the October CC Designs release.  Stamped with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Papertrey select white card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers. The E40’s (R20, 21, 22 and 24 on his cheeks) and then just two colors on each of the bulbs… same for the die cut Christmas Bulb border die… I cut it first in dark green,  then in white and colored the bulbs,  cut them off the cord and glued them to the green cut.  I did add some fine black lines where the bulb meets the cord.  The sentiment is from Liberty,  one of Christine’s Honey images for the 4th of July.  I purchased mine at the stamp store, Craft and Hobby Connection in Ottumwa, IA.  I used my stamp a ma jig to position the lights, from the reindeer lights stamp, on the nestability die cut circle with the sentiment. I edged the sentiment circle and the reindeer square with Weathered Wood Distress ink and the ink blending tool.  Added some little holly leaves, branches and berries from punches and a ribbon.  The big branch border is a new Martha Stewart deep edger branch border punch.

On the flip side… I embossed Reindeer Lights with a clear embossing stamp pad and clear embossing powder on white glossy paper.  Then I used the ink blending tool and black soot ink and completely covered the image with ink.  I ironed off the embossing powder between two sheets of scrap paper to get the “shocked” look!  I stamped “I’ve flipped for you” with a Memories waterproof/fast drying Black ink pad. The green double sided paper is from Bo Bunny.  I had to really lighten the picture so you could read the words.

Here’s a link on how to make the Swing/Flip Flop card.  I did change the size to fit this image.

Thanks for stopping by!  I always love hearing from you!
