Thanks for stopping in today! I have a fun, texture-filled card to share with you today that uses this week's WSC Sketch #182. You can find complete Wednesday Stamp Club details at the MFT Blog and a complete MFT product list at the bottom of this post. Let's get to it!
I'm still cranking out graduation cards and wanted this one to have that 'brick wall' look that you see in so many of the grad photos, and the
Small Brick Wall Stencil worked perfectly. I first die cut the Kraft layer with the largest rectangle of Blueprints 6 and then coated it with a layer of embossing paste over my brick stencil.
While that layer dried, I got to work on my sentiment layer and embellishments. The sentiment from Chalkboard Greetings Too is stamped on a Black Licorice layer that was die cut using the smaller rectangle from Blueprints 6 in Sweet Tooth ink.
I added punches of color with the striped Blu Raspberry Stitched Strip and Grout Gray Stacked Stars.
The inside continues a minimal version of the front with another striped Fishtail Flag, star and sentiment from the same stamp set, Chalkboard Greetings Too.
I hope I've inspired you to pull together some of your favorite stamping supplies for this week's sketch. If you need a bit more inspiration, head on over to the MFT Blog for more eye candy!
I decided to put them to the waterproof challenge and made a plethora of fun coasters, just in time for those patio parties we all love during summer. Complete Creative Challenge details can be found at the MFT Blog, and details for each of my coasters can be found directly below its picture as well as at the bottom of my post (Inlinkz section). Grab your favorite beverage and ENJOY!
I'm guessing many of you have a few hundred of these thin coasters in your stash, so why not pull them out and use MFT's Hybrid Ink Pads to jazz up your next patio party?! The MFT Design Team is on hand with plenty of inspiration, so check out their links at the MFT Blog.
