MCT 48 Hour Flash Sale & Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to another 48 Hour Flash Sale!  This sale is for 48 hours ONLY and will end on Sunday, February 4, 2018, at 7 AM PST.

We have an amazing new kit we are showcasing!  Happy Rainy Days consists of a stamp set with coordinating dies, along with a coordinating stencil!  We are so excited to share this EXCLUSIVE kit with all of you!  Now since it is exclusive, once the kits sell out, they are gone forever.


I had so much fun creating a stormy scene on my card today using the stencil from the kit!  I started by using a "smooshing technique," smooshing Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky and Broken China on a piece of acetate, spritzing it with water, and then pressing that down onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol Cardstock.  After drying that with my heat tool, I used the stencil and the Stormy Sky ink with an ink blending tool to add on the clouds and raindrops.  I love how this turned out!

  To give the card a big pop of color, I ink blended more Strathmore Bristol Cardstock with Picked Raspberry and Wild Honey distress inks and then die cut the cute girl from the kit.  I used one of  the heart dies with some of the extra inked paper while I was at it.  The sentiment, one of 12 fabulous options from the kit, was stamped on a die cut made with one of the Fun Stitched Tag Dies.

Here is a closer look at Happy Rainy Days:
