Guest Designing for My Favorite Things Day Three

Welcome back to the third and final day of my big adventure as guest designer for My Favorite Things!  Today is all about the ever important gesture, the hug.  A card with a hug can be used for so many occasions and spans the gamut of recipients.  Here are a couple of cards that showcase some of the products from MFT's recent release:

This adorable little guy pops out perfectly out of his Peek-a-Boo Wonky Window, with the partial sentiment, "I Miss" just above the "U" missing from the Hugs word above.  The bear was colored with Copics.  I stamped and colored an extra right paw so he could look like he's holding the "U". The "Hugs" die word was cut three times, once in plaid, once in foam, and once in the blue cardstock.  The scene was then framed with a Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frame border in white and mounted on a white top folding notecard.  All of the supplies are listed below. 

Here's a bit of a close-up:

Supplies:
Stamps:  Friends Furever, Lots of Hugs
Papers:  Plaid Patterns
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black Ink 
Copics:  E30, 31, 33, 35, 37, 29, 0, R00, Multi-liner 0.3


Moving in an entirely different direction, the next two cards feature the script Hugs Die-namics, and the Sketched Blooms 2 stamp set. 



Both cards were stamped with gold embossing powder onto watercolor paper.  The Hugs die cut was also heat embossed in the same gold.  Everything was painted with Twinkling Waters which gives it a shimmery finish.  The partial panel and Hugs die cut were foam mounted on the first card, and the Hugs die cut was inlaid into the panel of the second card.

Supplies:
Stamps:  Sketched Blooms 2
Dies: Hugs
Paints:  Twinkling Waters - Royal Orchid, Wine and Roses, Mediterranean Blue, Dreamsicle, Moss Agate, Lemongrass, Deep Coral, Blushing Rose
Other:  Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder, Fun Foam

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Thank you, MFT, for the honor of guest designing for you!  I had so much fun playing with the new stamps and dies and combining them with ones that I already had.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
Kara Lynne

  9. These are fabulous Kara! I LOVE the clever design of the first, with that adorable teddy holding onto the U. The second one is gloriously colourful and the flowers just pop against that crisp white, and the final card, is again, colourful and cheery and I love the pops of gold from the heat embossing! Have a wonderful day my friend! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx
