MFT Creative Olympics 2018: Event 3 Crafty Biathlon..


So I just realised that my cards for the first two events won't qualified, as I mixed MFT products with other ones.

No matter, I am having fun, so I am still playing along with all 4 events. These things happen and 2018 is my year for putting less 'blog / craft' pressure on myself and remember to have fun.

So for event 3 MFT have a -

Choose one thing from each of the columns below and combine to make one card.

I went with Emboss Resist and Shaker.

Two of my fave things..

As I made an error with my first two cards, I was careful with my products here.

I decided I wanted to have a vague nod to the Olympics in my card, so I pulled out x2 flower sets by MFT 'Pretty Posies' and 'Large Desert Bouquet' and used a mix of circle stamps to create my embossed background. I heat embossed the circles using white powder.

I then watercoloured over the heat embossing to get the resist and I used the 5 Olympic colours.

Using my fave scalloped peek-a-boo die by MFT I die-cut through the background, to create the window for my shaker.

I filled the shaker with sequins from my stash in co-ordinating colours.

Obviously I had to add Monsters to this already awesome card and used two of the monsters from the MFT 'More Monsters' set. The sentiment is also from the set and I used stazon ink, so that it would stamp properly over the heat embossed background.

Fun, bright and cheery is the end result and it's a teeny bit busy, but I love it.

I'll be back with event 4 tomorrow.



  1. Oh man this is amazing! Monsters and stripes and shaker this is a fab card man. Really nice stuff. xx

  2. This is fantastic, love the shaker element. Isn't it annoying when you realise that your vision, doesn't quite fit, still brilliant cards x
