Happy weekend!

I hope you all have had a great weekend, I have been busy crafting today, trying to get deadlines done before heading back to work…

So tonight, I wanted to pop in and share a simple layered card using pattern papers and card stock, along with Pretty Pink Posh dies and stamps..

I have been starring at these Blissful Butterflies since they arrived at my door and I just needed to find that time to play, well I did the other day and finally I get to share with you all..


I stamped these butterflies out onto Vellum and embossed with white embossing powder and then re stamped again but this time with Memento Tuexedo Black ink, this I coloured with Copics..I die cut them all out with the coordinating die, then went about die cutting a tag using the Stitched Essentials 1 out of pattern paper, sticking with the die cutting I die cut some Kraft card stock, using the Stitched Border 4…next was to have a sentiment, so I chose to use a stamp from the Birdie Notes, stamping with Versamark ink and embossing with white embossing powder, onto a piece of pattern paper that matched the other papers..

I went about layering these all onto the card front and finished off with scattering clear sequins around the card..

I hope I have inspired you to get a little creative mixing dies, stamps, pattern papers and card stock together..

I will be back with another card share with you all tomorrow..

Thanks for taking the time to pass by today!

Have you had a chance to play along with this weeks Sketch Challenge for MFT?  Super sweet and simple design this week..


We are up to number 303, here is a look of the sketch for you to view if you would like to play along..



I chose a very simple look for my card, stamping out a sweet little kitty from the I Knead You stamp set, colouring the images I wished and die cutting these out, setting aside…I then took the some Cement Gray card stock and Stitched Rectangle Edge Frame dies and die cut one of these out of the card stock, adhering this to a white card base, then I went about placing the images inside the frame to replicate the look of the sketch, finishing off by die cutting some Grapesicle card stock using a banner out of the Blueprints 21 and stamping a sentiment onto this and a scattering of Pansy sequins..

The day is here for the October Card Kit, Cooler with You release day for MFT..



It has been a blast working with this kit, so super cute, I think I have said that in every post that I have created a card for, but it certainly is just that..


For release day, I kept my card pretty simple, lots of white which is my go to colour of course, die cutting the Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows out of white card stock, then die cutting again with Sno Cone card stock, this time only keeping the inner part of the window, with this part I ran it through the die cutting machine again and die cut the Snowfall Vertical die over the top, I adhered both the window and the snowfall piece onto a white card base, then went about die cutting a Snow Capped Mountain, out of Kraft and White card stock, adding this to one side of the window…I moved onto the image itself, taking one of the snowman from the Cooler with You stamp set, stamping out and colouring in with Copics, then die cutting out and adding him to the other side of the window…all there was left to do was to stamp out a sentiment and add that to the window at the top..

I hope you have enjoyed viewing all the creations from the design team over the last 3 days, be sure to swing past the BLOG again today to see more inspiration..

Happy Shopping!!

Hi there

So we begin Day 2 of sharing creations using the MFT October Card Kit called Cooler with You, super cute and great interactive kit..


I wasn’t able to create the interactive side this kit as I was away on a mini craft retreat with a friend and of course I forgot the spinner products, silly me, but today is the day the team get to share out of the box creations with you all, so we can incorporate the card kit with other products from MFT..


I chose to stamp out that sweet little polar bear doing a little fishing, to create my sea scene, I die cut white card stock out of Snowdrifts Cover Up die, using only parts of the die cut card stock, I went about adding distress inks, Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass, then piecing these back together onto more white card stock, adding this to the bottom part of the card, along with my little polar bear that I had stamped and coloured with Copics, the final addition to my card, was to add a sentiment, which I stamped out and embossed with white embossing powder onto Kraft card stock..

Be sure to swing past the MFT blog to see more creations from the design team..

I will be back tomorrow with the full reveal and purchase day for you guys..

Thanks for taking the time to pass by today..

Today is the first day of the countdown to the full reveal of the October card kit for MFT


The design team get to share creations with you all that only contain products from the kit itself..


I chose to create a little snowman scene..stamping out the two snowman and penguin from the stamp set Cooler with You stamp set, colouring in with Copics and die cutting out with the matching dies..I then decided to die cut little trees out of Gumdrop Green card stock instead of colouring these images in…the snowman needed a bank of snow, so using a basic circle die, I die cut one out of white card stock and trimming one side off to create a snow bank…I wanted there to be falling snow in the background, so I took a piece of white card stock and die cut a piece out using the Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles, adding Summer Splash ink to the panel and then added white gel pen dots over this to create snow falling..I added my snow bank, along with trees and the snowman with penguin and my scene was complete..

Please head on over to the MFT blog to see more creations from the design team…

I will be back again tomorrow with another creation using this kit..

Hi there

Finally getting around to sharing my Wednesday Sketch Challenge card with you all…I was in the midst of getting organised to go away and never had time to sit an prep anything..but thought seeing as the weekend is still slightly with us and there is a few more days still to enter for you chance to win this week..


So we are up to number 302 and this sketch was a really simple sketch..



I left my take on the challenge pretty much to the exact of the sketch, taking out the Somebunny Loves You set, stamping out a bunny with two chicks, colouring in with Copics and die cutting them out, I added them to the top of a strip of Peach Bellini card stock, that I had previously added a sentiment too and then added these to a white panel..and that was my take..

I hope you will find sometime before the next challenge to enter..
