Oink! Guesting at My Favorite Things Blog!

Hey everyone,

I am super thrilled to share that I am guest designing at My Favorite Things. Yay! I am a big fan My Favorite Things designs. So when I was asked to guest design. I was not only thrilled but honoured. Thank you so much for the opportunity and generosity. I thoroughly enjoyed creating many projects using the newly released products. Today I am sharing couple of cards at MFT Blog. I am sharing one of the card here. Check out MFT blog for the other. Hope you like them.

This is one of my favorite card so far this year. I created a swing card using die namics Flop Card - Oval and Hogs Heaven stamp set and coordiating dies.

Hello Oink!

I created a side open card base with Primitive Cream card stock. On the entire card base, including the insides and back of the card, I stamped the Small Brick Background stamp using Natural Premium Hybrid Ink. I sponged distress inks on the edges on all four sides of the card base, and then I used the Flop Card – Oval Die-namics to make the flop card front.
I stamped all the images (some twice) from the Hog Heaven stamp set on Smooth White card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and then I coloured them all with markers. Using the coordinating Die-namics, I die cut them and then die cut a few of the Oval Shadows Die-namics using Primitive Cream Card Stock. Next, I sponged the edges with distress inks.

For the focal point on the card front, I die cut the stitched oval die from the Flop Card  – Oval Die-namics using Primitive Cream Card Stock and then sponged distress inks on the edges and centre of the oval. To create the landscape layers, I used Sour Apple Card Stock and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and sponged distress ink on them. Then I layered them on the oval die cut and trimmed off the overhang with scissors. Next, I adhered the oval shadow, two potted flowers, and the dancing hog using foam tape, and then I stamped oink using black ink and adhered the finished oval to the front of the flop element.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment on Primitive Cream card stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, die cut it using one of the dies from Blueprints 29, applied distress inks to the edges, and adhered it to the card front.

For the focal point on back of the swing element, I did a similar process except I used the fence image, the hog with the heart, and few of the tiny flowers. Next, I stamped the sentiment on Primitive Cream Card Stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and die cut it using one of the flags from Blueprints 29. Finally, I adhered the finished oval to the back side of the flop element.
For the inside of the card, I die cut the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 29 from Primitive Cream Card Stock, sponged distress ink on the edges, and adhered it on the inside of the card. Then I adhere a few more images from the Hog Heaven stamp that I had coloured with markers and die cut. Finally, I embellished the card with Rose Gold sequins.

Hello oink inside flat
I thoroughly enjoyed making this card! It was totally outside the box for me as I generally do not make such detailed cards. A bit of adventure, but I love how it turned out.
Check out MFT Blog for the second card and how I made that one. The second card also has an element which is outside the box. Hope you like that one.
You can find all the supplies I used on my card at MFT Store.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Oh, Gayatri, congratulations on being a guest designer for MFT! They are blessed to have you, and I love this beautiful and adorable card! I love all your work, and (I must admit) I just love the scissors in each of your photos. Being a former quilter, I have such an affection for beautiful scissors like this one. Ha! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work! Hugs!
