Thanks for stopping by for MFT's March Creative Construction with Blueprints.
We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to both assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches as well as design an original card combining elements from the featured Blueprints.
Wonky panels are trickier to execute than they might appear at first glance. This month’s challenge focuses on Blueprints 15 and Blueprints 18 that make creating die-cut panels with a little sass to them quick and easy.
Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for the list of designers sharing project today.
My first card is designed with Blueprints 18 and based on one of the provided sketched. This is actually one of my Blueprints. I love the slated panels!
On the top half of the card I added the background patterns with the Starry Night Stencil and silver embossing paste on Blue Breeze Card Stock. On the bottom half I stamped the Pinstripe Background Stamp with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and embossed with white embossing powder on Wild Cherry Card Stock.
The sentiment is from the Photo Booth Stamp Set. The star is included in Blueprints 18 and cut from glittered card stock.
On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set.
My second card uses a combination of the two Blueprints. The front card panel, the slated panel, the small tab, the stitched circles, and the heart are cut with dies in Blueprints 15.
From Blueprints 18 I used the dies that cut the white circle the sentiment is stamp on, the flags at the top top of the card, the the black strip that runs across the card.
I added pattern to the Kraft Card Stock with the Burlap Background Stamps and Kraft Premium Dye Ink on the Tickled Pink Card Stock, I used the Polka Dot Stencil with white embossing paste and sprinkled glitter on the paste while it was still wet.
The stamped sentiment and small hearts on the tab are stamped with the Candy Jar Companions Stamp Set.
The sentiment on the inside is stamped with the Sea Life Stamp Set.
