Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess …. Shirley Quarry.

Shirley has challenged us to Make it Shimmer this week when we create our cards/projects.

For my card today I have used a number of the new products which will be available from MFT Stamps next Tuesday 7th May.

For the card base I used the Die-namics Mini Album Square Scallop STAX to die cut Berrylicious card, I folded the card in half prior to die cutting the card.

I used  one of the flowers from Mona Pendleton Design Dandelion Wishes to stamp all over the base of my card using Berrylicious ink.

I used the new Steel Blue card to die cut the scallop panel which was also cut using the Die-namics Mini Album Square Scallop STAX.

On the Smooth White card I again stamped the Mona Pendleton Design Dandelion Wishes all over using Berrylicious ink this time stamping off on scrap paper first before stamping on my card to get a softer look. I then used the Die-namics Happy Hellos and Berrylicious card to create the “Hello” word which I adhered to the bottom right hand side of my card.

I used one of the Ribbon fishtail pieces from the Die-namics Blueprints 2 set. I added a Berrylicious Button to the top left hand corner and Hemp Cord.

For the shimmer part of the challenge I added rhinestones to the top Steel Blue strip.


On the inside of my card I added a sentiment and Dandelion from the Mona Pendleton Design Dandelion Wishes stamp set using Steel Blue ink and Berrylicious ink onto Smooth White card.

Here are the MFT products I used on my card today. Please note the links to the new products being released will not work until they are released.

That is one beautiful monochromatic card - and as always, your inside as as pretty (in this case, fun in others) as the front.
