Create8 | June cards

Today I have a fun video tutorial! I will showcase the June 2018 MFT release by sharing 8 cards using most of the products. So here we go!

card 1

For my first card I used the gorgeous Stitched Blooms die set. There are so many ways to use this set, cut them out of patterned paper, of colored cardstock, or white and then color it. I decided to go simple and kept everything white but the flower centers. The centers match the background panel so everything comes together. Love the elegant look!

card 2

Using the fireworks stamp set I did lots of embossing on this card. The stamp set is perfect for congratulation cards and there are so many ways to use it. And here is another idea: make your fireworks colorful on a dark blue (night sky) background for an amazing effect! the sentiment is from the You wow me stamp set and I cut out the word WOW with this die.

card 3

This card is so bright and happy but so simple at the same time. Everybody loves shaker cards and I sure had lots of fun using the shaker sunshine die. I combined it with the Full of sunshine stamp set and the Sunshine die.

card 4

One of my favorite cards from today’s set is this one! I used stamps from the Toucan do it set.  With the leaves I created my own patterned paper and then I just colored and placed the toucan on top. For some added interest I also cut out a window. Love the sentiment!

card 5

A fish card, perfect for any summer birthday. A card you can give to both boys or girls! The stamps are from the Adorned Ocean Friends  set. It is a layering stamp set with a solid image and a doodling to add on top. I love that it’s perfect for quick cards with no coloring.

To make the card more playful I just had to add some googly eyes!

card 6

Now this is unique! How about an aquarium die set?! Combine it with the large rectangle shaker pouches and you have the perfect place to put your fish in! For my little fish, sea grass and sentiment I used stamps from the Gill friends . It has tiny images that fit perfectly inside my aquarium.

card 7

One more ocean themed card … well I live in Greece and we do enjoy 30 ºC  (about 86 ºF) these days, so I can’t stay away from this theme!  My pelican is from the Beach Buds stamp set and that lovely sea was made using the Make Waves stencil.

card 8

And for the last card I have something clean and simple but with a sparkle! I used the Geometric Stars stencil and applied glimmer paste on top. I completed my card with touches of silver and the hello sentiment using this die.

    Loved them all, but my favorite has to be the aquarium! Whenever I see a stencil, I always think I have to use the entire design in my card. You just taught me that is not so and that I can use a portion of a larger stencil to make a very bold statement! I’m always learning from you Vicky!

    These are all so pretty and fun. I think I like the pelican best. I like the effect of the chunky embossing powder as the waves, and the sentiment is so darn cute!

    Wow, Vicki! You make it hard to choose a favorite. I really like those die cut flowers on the satin cardstock. The toucan and the aquarium are so cute and colorful. But I think the one that’s my favorite is the pelican. I love how he’s floating across the waves with his little octopus buddy. So adorable!

      many different ones depending on the use… I love Neenah solar white 80lb for alcohol markers, bristol smooth for ZIG clean markers, SimonSaysstamp 120lb heavy carstock for my cardbases, Canson heavy watercolor paper for watercoloring … hope this helps!
