Just Swinging By To Say Hi!

Hi Crafty Friends,

My card today is for a challenge I do with a couple of friends of mine. Each month we challenge each other to create something using supplies we all own.

“Swing” - Our cards this month have to include something that swings .... you could use MFT Stamps Interactive Swing die, create a card using a swing image or create a Swing Card (aka Flip-its card).

Seeing I purchased MFT Stamps Interactive Swing Die-namics earlier in the year, I wanted to play with that again to make another card. When I purchased this die I discovered that over the years I have acquired a fair number of stamps with a swing theme. So for my card today I decided to pull out one of those older stamps.

I used La-La Land Crafts Tire Swing stamp set for the swing portion of the card and the boy is Edwin  with Airplane from Magnolia stamps. I also added a puppy from MFT Stamps Puppy Pals stamp set.

As the tire swing is quite large, this card is a tall card measuring 4 1/4 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches tall.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

For the background of my card I used MFT Stamps Mini Cloud Stencil with Catherine Pooler's Skylight ink.

Along the bottom of the card I added grass, which is the new MFT Stamps Tucked-in Grass - Horizontal Die-namics. 

For the inside of my card I added grass along the bottom this time using MFT Stamps Tucked-in Grass - Vertical Die-namics. I used this as the one I used on the front would not fit the width of my card.

I also added a sentiment using Honey Bee Stamps Wish Clear Stamp set.
