Hi there

I am back today with a collaboration that is happening with Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp, STAMPtember® celebrations..


Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh designed this fabulous Winter Bird stamp set for this special occasion, isn’t it just the cutest thing ever..


This is an exclusive stamp set just for this wonderful month of celebrations, bringing the stamp world together, so make sure you get your hands on this fabulous stamp set..

Here is a card I created using this sweet little birdie..


I chose to die cut some aqua card stock from my stash, using the Scallop Frames dies several times and adhered these together to give dimension, I also die cut a piece of white card stock twice,  but only using the inside section, with the inside section I die cut a Scallop Borders to give a snow bank and the other I added some Lawn Fawn ink, Merman, to this piece I added some white gel pen dots to represent falling snow…I then adhered all this to a white card base and went about stamping out my little birdie and his little additions, colouring these in with Copics, trimming around and adding him to the snow bank, finishing off the card, by stamping out a sentiment and some sequins..

I hope you like the creation, there is load more inspiration over on the Simon Says Stamp blog

Hi there

Hope you are all enjoying your Friday, sadly for me it is back to work tomorrow, but the countdown is on for holidays and I can’t wait..

Tonight before heading for bed I wanted to pop in really quickly and share a Pretty Pink Posh card with you all..

I just adore the sweet little stamp set called Fox Friends, so when it finally arrived at my house it was instant love and I created a card pretty much straight away, but haven’t had time to share it til now..


I stamped out one of the foxes and coloured in with Copics, die cutting it out and setting aside, I took some white card stock and trimmed to size I was after, then at the base of that card stock I used the die, Scallop Borders to die cut a piece off the bottom, adding gingham pattern paper onto the card then foam mounted the die cut white piece, with the die cutting still happening, I went about die cutting a piece of water colour paper using the die, Stitched Essentials 1..adding colour to the tag, by blending inks Coral Crush and Peach Bellini, once I was happy with the result, I added this to the white panel, adding a twine bow at the top of the tag, then added my little fox along with a banner that I stamped a sentiment onto and coloured also with my copics..I completed my card, by adding a scattering of sequins, Clear and Rose Gold..

Super simple and really quick to make, something that I hope puts a smile on someone’s face..

Okay, bedtime for me…

Have a great rest of the day, I will be back tomorrow to share more..

    Adorable card Joy, and lovely colouring and mining! Love how you placed your sequins ;-)ReplyCancel

Hi there

Back tonight with MFT Color Challenge, we are currently up to number 54..



So I am going to share, this card should really be in the bin, it is what I call a UGLY card, but you know what I am sharing so that you get to see that we can all make these types of cards…think I was in a funk when I created this, but was out of time to create anything else..so hence I am sharing..


So I started out with the idea of stamping and embossing the different coloured card stocks from the Color Challenge, using the Geometric Greenery..my original thought was to place all the leaves over the card, well as you can clearly see, that did not work for me, so hence, I embossed a sentiment onto black card stock and went about adding the colours of the leaves either side of the sentiment panel..

Plain jane and butt ugly..LOL

I suppose if you can look past the ugliness of this card, you can see a not too bad layout…

Anyways, that is the card for today, I am hoping my other teamies will give you more inspiration over on the MFT Challenge Blog, so head on over and take a look..

    You’re too hard on yourself, I like the card.ReplyCancel


    It is nice to know someone with your great talent can also have a dud! That made me feel better although my percentage of duds is much higher! Thanks for sharing and letting us feel better — you might say you were particularly amazing for doing so!ReplyCancel

Hi there

Back with another post as promised..

Wednesday and it is a new sketch for MFT, number 299..



I chose to Bold Blooms as my focal point on the card, stamping out some of the flowers and leaves in bold colours of Poppy, Nightshift Blue, Limelight, Pineapple, Steel Grey and Cement Gray inks, die cutting out the flowers and leaves and moving onto the background feature, with that, I trimmed down a piece of white card stock, to match the sketch, inked up the Lined Up Dots background stamp with Cement Gray ink and stamped onto the white card stock, adding this to a white card base…I then die cut the Single Stitch Line Circle Frame 4 times and adhered together for dimension, using one of the inserts from the circle die cut to stamp out a sentiment from the Whimsical Greetings, adhering the circles and flowers to the card to complete..

I hope you all get some time to play along, remember to head on over to the MFT Challenge Blog to see more details on how you can join in the fun..

I am off to do a bit more crafting before heading to bed..

Have a great rest of the day!

    Joy, I love your card! It is so bold and alive looking! I love the background stamp “Lined Up Dots” and the simple flowers done in such bold colors contrasting with the white or grey of the rest of the card. Thanks for sharingReplyCancel

  • Dawn T

    Very pretty Joy. Love the flowersReplyCancel

  • Nancy M

    Great card, Joy. I like the contrast of the patterned against the plain backgrounds.ReplyCancel


Today is the day, the card kit release day, it is now up for purchase and I know you all will want this amazing kit..



I have created one last card for you all as inspiration..


I chose to work with Tropical Teal card stock again and stamped out a bunch of snowflakes from the Simply Snowflakes set, this time embossing with silver embossing powder…I then went about die cutting the Single Stitched Line Rectangle Frames out of white card stock 4 times, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension, keeping one of the inserts, with that insert, I applied Blue Breeze ink to the top portion of that card stock, along with the trimmed piece of white card stock…once I was happy with the blending, I added my rectangle frame, along the top of the frame, I then went about adding my snowflakes…the insert piece I stamped out a sentiment from the Snowfall of Blessings in Steel Grey ink, I finished off the card by adding some rhinestones for more sparkle..


I hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration the team has provided over the last few days and that you do manage to get your hands on one of these kits, truly amazing they are..

Remember there is loads more inspiration over on the MFT blog

Enjoy the rest of your day, I will be back tonight with another post for Wednesday Sketch Challenge..

I hope you enjoyed seeing everyone’s projects using the Snowflake Sparkle card kit yesterday…it really is a load of fun this kit and so many wonderful products..


I am back with day 2 of the card kit and today the design team get to stretch the kit a little bit further working with what they call out of the box, so that means we can use product contained in the kit and product from MFT


I chose to use a fairly simple design again and using mostly what was in the box apart from a few other pieces..


I trimmed down a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front, onto it, I added a die cut circle out of vellum that I stamped and embossed little teeny tiny snowflakes falling from the Simply Snowflakes, I then stamped and embossed a sentiment to go over the top of this onto white card stock using a sentiment from the Snowfall of Blessings, embossed with silver…staying with the embossing part of things, I stamped out 3 of the snowflakes onto Tropical Teal card stock and embossed with white embossing powder, die cutting these out and adhering together with foam tape to give dimension, I added some silver thread to the back of the snowflake and adhered this to the vellum piece on the card, finishing off my card with a scattering of clear sequins and a piece of Silver Sparkle card stock at the base to anchor the whole project…

For more inspiration from the design team just head on over to the MFT blog..

I will be back tomorrow to share one last card for the full release of the card kit..

Until then have a fabulous day!
