Hello…today I’m sharing mostly pictures and a couple of videos of the cards I have made as my entry for the MFT Creative Olympics…at one point I really thought I won’t be able to complete my projects for all 4 events but thankfully I managed to cross the finish line…
The only rule for this event was to have a winter theme…I chose to make a spinner card using the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set with the Snowfall Background die and the Downhill Slope die….For the background I have used Distress Inks – wilted violet,blueprint sketch,chipped sapphire and black soot..
In the second event,we had to combine one technique from each of the two columns in the list provided and create a card…I chose to do dry embossing as well as die cut inlay from the first column and create a shaker card..I have used the Stitched Circle Stax to create the olympic rings and Wild Greenery die to dry emboss the top layer and the layer which is the shaker background…on the Backgrounds I have used vintage photo and lucky clover Oxide Inks…I have filled the shaker with a lot of star
I have also used the cute images from Fierce Friends stamp set and placed them behind the Olympic rings…I stamped the sentiment on a die cut label and added some clear sequins to embellish it..
In this 4th and last event,we had to create a card from start to finish within 20 mins…so I knew I was going to use a set with matching dies and colour in using water soluble colours…I used the English Brick Wall stencil and hickory smoke Oxide Ink to create the background on my front panel..
I have used the images from Fancy Flowers stamp set and coloured them in pretty quickly using shaded lilac,picked raspberry and evergreen bough Oxide inks..I die cut them using the coordinating dies(this took up most of my time)..I adhered these die cuts at the bottom of the front panel and cut off the excess…I have also used a stitched rectangle die to emboss an edge on the panel as well…finally I used All About You stamp set and stamped the sentiment on the card front using wilted violet Oxide Ink and added a few clear Nuvo drops to embellish it..
It was a crazy run to get these cards finished but I’m so happy I did…I don’t know how everyone is so quick with their creations and some even add their entries within hours…
Thank you so much for stopping by today…hope your days is wonderful..happy crafting…!!
