More MFT Olympics - 2 cards

Yay! I have managed to create two more cards for the MFT Creative Olympics, which means I have a card for each of the 4 events.

First up, I have a card for Event #1, the Stamping Slalom, which challenged us to use images from at least 3 different MFT sets. Well, I managed to combine images from 4 different sets (Llama Love, Merry Everything, Friends in the Forest, Bitty Bears) and also borrowed the 'HOLIDAY' from a 5th set (Deer Friends) to alter my sentiment from the Llama Love set.

I'm also linking up my card at:

52CCT - Polar bears

CHNC -  #373 Anything Christmas goes

My second card is for Event #3, the Crafty Biathlon, which is about combining one of the given techniques with one of the card types.

I created a shaker with inlaid die cutting, using my new MFT shaker elements and my new MFT die. To create my background, I did a little smooshing using a piece of acetate and my Catherine Pooler inks (Mint to be, Daydream). The wonderful sequin mix is by 28 Lilac Lane.

Here's a close-up of the shaker part. I love how these shaker elements allow me to create shakers without the additional bulk and weight of foam tape.

I'm also linking up this card at:

AAA Cards - #109 Die cuts only

SSS Wednesday - Add a die cut

And don't forget there's still some time left to link up any Christmas card using any colouring medium at the current challenge at Jingle Belles. The linky closes Wednesday night (6pm EST).


  1. The first is very sweet indeed and the second very dramatic in those colours.

  4. oh my gosh, that crafty olympics sounds like a blast! and you are definitely ROCKIN' the events! i love BOTH of these ideas & couldn't possibly pick a fave. (tho a llama in a wooly hat kind of automatically WINS at anything, doesn't it??!?!?!) :) :) :)

  5. Both great cards, i love the punny sentiment on the first one.
    Thank you for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge x

  9. Wonderful cards - and I'm getting kind of jealous I've missed these "Olympics"! The biathlon would have been just the right thing! Both cards are stunning in their own right.
