Smile

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Yay, it’s Friday!!! Who’s ready for the weekend? Before I get to my project today I wanted to remind you about the Fall Video Challenge we have going on… You can click the banner below for more details. There are 3 Gift cards up for grabs to the store !! If you don’t do videos that’s okay you can submit a Photo Tutorial as well for a chance to Win.. Head over and check out the details!

I’m using some Fun new products from My Favorite Things today for a Birthday card sure to make the recipient SMILE!

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and I added die cut the panel with the MFT Blueprints #27. Then I added some Mustard Seed Distress ink to the Background. I smooshed the pad onto my craft mat and spritzed the ink with some water. Then I smooshed the paper into the ink until I had the coverage I wanted. I heat set the panel with a heat tool and then I added a few splatters of water and picked up the excess with a paper towel.

Then I die cut Smile from the center of the Panel using the Double the Smiles Die-namic from MFT. I adhered some washi tape behind the panel and then I die cut Smile three more times from some Black Licorice cardstock. I inlaid the Black die cut Smile and then added a second and third layer as well. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110 lb cut to A2 Size, then I added some Fun Foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card front and set it aside.

I stamped a sentiment from the coordinating All Smiles stamp set from MFT and used the Essential Fishtail Sentiments Strips Die-namics to cut it out. Then I adhered it under SMILE on the front of the card with some foam adhesive. I stamped the little bears from the Adorable Bitty Bears set from MFT onto some Bristol Smooth as well and I colored them in with Distress Ink Markers and a Nuvo Aqua Brush.

Distress Markers used: Hickory Smoke, Pumice Stone, Festive Berries and Mustard Seed.

I used the coordinating die-namics to cut the images out and I adhered them to the card with Foam tape. These little bears are a must have, they coordinate well with any word set and they are perfect for all occasions.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

    Such a cheerful card you’ve made … sure to bring a smile to the recipient. I really like the clean and simple layout and the huge SMILE. The bears are so adorable … I am sooooo in LOVE with all of the Birdie Brown stamp sets right now.

    Wow, I am impressed with your coloring of the bear with the Distress markers. I can never get mine to blend. How did you do it?

      Thanks Gabriella, add just a line of color around the edges of your image then blend it out with the water brush keeping it soft. Let it dry then scribble your marker onto something to create a palette and pick up the color with the waterbrush and just drop it in. Repeat until you have the look you want. you want the waterbrush to be just slighty damp not full of water.
