MFT Presents for you!

Good day to you all. 

Allthough I have a rough week with another bad news from the Oncologist...I try to keep my head up and find peace and happines in my crafting.  Then I got the tip from a dear girlfriend that there is a GDT Call from My Favorite Things at Splitcoasters Forum! I just had to jump in and make a card for this. Their prize is huge and the honor even bigger!!!  I can't imagine to win this prize... be their GDT and get all that stuff... I think I would pinch myself to see if I'm dreaming.. would give this week a totally different feel! But if I win or not... it was so peaceful and getting back in harmony with myself to work on this card with the wonderful products of MFT!!! That is worth a million too!

Oh and did I mention what the theme is? Well the theme is BLING IT ON!

I love this little cutie that is from Pure Innocence and called Presents for you.
I colored her with my copic markers: Skin:E000,50,21,93, Hair: Y26,21,YR30,E35
Others: R30,32,35,37,39, N0,1,4, V17,E57,59
On the clothes I used Stickles Star dust (that don't show that well on the photo)
On the packages I used Stickles Diamond because the give another color of bling.

The little lovely MFT Die-namics Leafy Flourish I cut in half and used together. They're made with Felt Sour Apple and DP.
The image is layerd with foam on the background Oval that I made with the MFT Oval Decorative Doily
Sentiment is from AmyR and around the torned paper I used Star dust Stickles again. Design Papers by Marianne Design Eline's Vintage Christmas Red and Green. Little pearl swirl and loose pearls from my stash.

I hope that you have a great day and take a look at the gallery at Splitcoasters to see what the other girls made! The sure did a fantastic job for this GDT Contest!

With Love

One card for two challenges!

TGIF.... again... isn't it great that Friday is coming back? (OMG... it's Thursday today.... sorry for the mistake of early posting... this is one of my senior moments LOL

Well I'm happy with it... because it means that the weekend will arrive soon and will bring plenty more time to play in my craft room!

Today's card is ready for two brand new challenges that are up and ready today!
The first challenge is on the wonderful blog of Totally Papercraft Challenge Blog!

AND we are having a DT call ,, we are looking for a few new DT people to join us so if you are interested in joining this FAB group of friends then have a peek at the Totally Papercrafts Challenge blog for further details.

This weeks theme, by Mel, is a true challenge .... Use Acetate!!!!
I can tell you that my teamies gave a lot of blood, sweat and tears to make you inspirational examples! Please give them a warm thank you at the blog!
For me it was so much fun to play with the acetate and let my spirit fly free with it!
Well here is my card!

I embossed the Acetate and Airbrushed it with green copic marker... then removed a part
of the copic ink. The acetate is little up above the stamped image from Crafty Individuals, CI-183
unfortunally not visible at this photo.
The Crafty Individuals stamp is colored with my pencils and placed behind the acetate.
The text stamp on top is from Art Journey and a gift from a good friend of my!

Prize will be FOUR digi images of winners choice.

Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge at All that Scraps

Morning ladies.... today there is a Theme this week at the All That Scraps Challenge Blog!
And it's an important one!!!

Breast Awareness Month!

We want you to use pink on your card for the rest of the month!!!
I'm so happy with this theme! As a daughter of a two time breastcancer survivor I'm so aware of the need
to keep giving support to those who fought this hard disease... some won... some lost it...
and those who stayed behind need our support and care as well.

So dear Mom... this card is dedicated to you!!! A true fighter and survivor!!! Thanks for showing me that you can beat this monster!

So I'm asking you to take out all the pink you have and join us in this warm and caring challenge and show our loved ones, friends, people we know that we care and think of them!!!

Now a week ago I saw a documentary on tv from the The SCAR project... I found their site and was so touched by it!  They have this slogan on the site...

Breast Cancer is not a Pink Ribbon....

As my mom survived Breast Cancer twice at a young age... this slogan, these photo's and documentary are so true of what is happening and what it does for the woman who is diagnozed with this horrible cancer! 
As a daughter of a survivor and lived so close to my mom during those times... I agree with this slogan!
It's way beyond that!!!

Hope you will follow the link and see how strong those women are!

With all my love and care

Make your own background part two.

Hi,,, I'm back with the second part of making your own backgroud with stamps, ink and embossingpowders.
Stamp Deputy Christopher by Inky Impressions
3 or more colors of distress ink in two color range
Ink blending tool,  Ink blending foam,
Versamark ink,  Archival Jet Black
Embossing powder clear
Tag, Heattool,  Craftsheet

Stamp the cute image on the tag with Memento or Archival ink (depending on what you will use to color the image with and stamp the same image on a piece of cardstock and cut is out. This will be your mask.
Then use a Zigg two way glue to glue your mask and let the glue turn from blue to white. This way it’s a removable glue now! Then add the mask on the stamped image.
Of course you can use Masking paper for this as well!

Stamp background stamp on the tag with Versamark ink pad, in this case I used a cloud stamp and a vine stamp. So I stamp each half on the tag!
Leave the mask on the stamped image and emboss with clear embossing powder and heat with heat tool.


With ink blending tool apply the the lightest color of the range over the complete tag. Use circular motions with the blending tool. Start this circulair motion on your craftsheet (or white paper) and during that circling motion sou go on to the tag!  This will give you a better result with the inking, and you will not get any stripes on it.…
Repeat these steps with each time a darker ink from the range and leave a little light color open.  I used two different colors on this tag… (yes you still leave the mask on the tag!)

Take a piece of cloth and make it damp with a Mini mister.. and go lightly over the tag. This way you take off the color of the embossed part. Now gently remove the mask from the tag and finish of you tag or card.  

In this case I used a cute image… but any image can be used for this technique!
Curious about the finished result... Check in September 28th at the
Inky Impressions Challenge Blog to see for yourself!

With Love
