Hope you have all had a great day! today was a good day here albeit a very hot day…

Today over at MFT the new sketch challenge begins and I am sure you will love this sketch, for more details and inspiration be sure to swing past HERE for details..

I started my card by trimming down a piece of white card stock to match the sketch, so the block piece of card stock, I covered with inks Summer Splash and Tropical Teal to create a water scene..

I then took images from Mermazing and coloured in the mermaid with the other images of coral and seaweed, I took inks Coral Crush, Wild Wisteria, Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green, die cutting each of the images out..

I then went back to the panel that was inked and flicked some water over the top to make the ink wick..

I added my images and stamped a sentiment out onto white card stock die cutting around the sentiment using the Oval Word Window Frames..

I needed a little bit more to my card before adding the main block and sentiment, so I took the Framework Stencil and some Peach Bellini adding just a touch of colour..

Adding my block panel and sentiment and my card was complete..

I so look forward to seeing what you all create with this sketch this week..

Have a fabulous day!







Did you enjoy the December Release, I hope you are either enjoying your goodies or you are adding these to your cart :)

Today at MFT we are sharing more projects for you all with Release Replay, to find more inspiration with the December Release be sure to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations HERE..

I chose to go back to one of my favourite sets for this month called Meant to Bee, those bees are just the cutest little things..

So I stamped out the images and coloured in with Copics, die cutting these out and setting aside..

On a piece of trimmed white card stock, I took the Hexagon Shaker Window & Frame, die cutting into one side of the card, with the inner part that was die cut I took the Cloud Stencil and some Blue Breeze ink, applying over the hexagon shape to create the cloud background..

I added the white card stock to a card base using some foam tape for dimension and with the stenciled background I adhered directly to the card base..

I adhered my little images and completed the card by adding a stamped sentiment onto some Black Licorice card stock and a scattering of sequins..

Very CAS card, but I do hope you find some inspiration..

Have a wonderful day, Bentley and I are hunkered down inside under the A/C with temps for the next 2 weeks to be in the high 30’s if not 40’s which is getting close if not there to the 100F… to say the least I loath the Summer each year..







Finally time to shop the December release from MFT, how exciting and what a great Christmas present to give yourself, I hope you have a lovely time shopping that you can do right HERE..

Be sure to swing past the MFT Blog to check out what everyone has created as more inspiration for you today using the new release items..

I chose to work with the Birdie Brown You’re Super set again and the Congratulations Circle..

I first, took some Black Licorice card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine 4 times, die cutting the Congratulations Circle, I adhered each layer together and set aside to dry..

I then stamped out my little hero girl and coloured her in with Copics, die cutting her out, setting her aside also..

Taking some Post-it tape and a trimmed piece of white card stock, I used the tape to mask off areas of the card stock to look like light was shinning from one corner of the card stock to the other, but having gradient effect using the colours Cornflower, Blue Breeze and Sno Cone..

Once I was happy with the look of the masked area, I added my Congratulations Circle along with my little girl and then went about adding another sentiment that I embossed with White Embossing Powder onto some After Midnight card stock, adding this across the circle feature..

I completed the card by adding a scattering of sequins and adding my panel to an After Midnight card base..

I hope you all have a wonderful time using this months release, I look forward to as I do each month checking out what you have all created..

Have fun!

We are almost there, with day 1 today of the MFT December Release and tomorrow means shopping day!

I am choosing to work with the free stamp stamp set that will be available for this month called Frosty Friends, just a really cute little set…

I took a couple of the images from the stamp set and onto white card stock that I had die cut with the Stitched Tag Rectangle Corner Stax I stamped these out..

On the top part of this die cut I stamped out some snowflakes and embossed with white embossing powder, adding a blend of Sno Cone to the top..

Next, I added a water scene at the base using Blue Yonder ink..

I coloured up the images and stamped a sentiment onto more white card stock, trimming this piece down and adding just under the images…

I completed my card by die cutting into a white panel using the Snowfall Vertical, adding the panel with images onto this and die cutting snowflakes from the Layered Snowflakes from Sno Cone card stock, adding a scattering of Clear Sequins and the card was complete..

I sure do hope you have enjoyed the release this month I will be back tomorrow with the New Product Launch, for now you can head over to the blog to see the rest of the teams amazing creations..

Hi there

Gosh inching closer to release day of the MFT December Release…I hope you are enjoying the creations of the countdown and we have more installed today, so be sure to swing past the blog to take a look at more amazing cards..

I am working with a set called Friendly Forest set, pairing up with the Stitched Tag-Corner Rectangle STAX…

I first die cut into a Kraft piece of card stock that was cut slightly smaller then the card front and also a scratch piece of white card stock..with the Kraft I added foam tape to the back to add dimension, adding this to a white card base…

With the inner panel of white I took the Cloud Stencil and using Blue Breeze ink I applied all over the panel, adding a sentiment to the top part of this card stock, then adhering to the inside of the Kraft panel..

Next, I took my little images from the stamp set, placing them into my Mini Misti and using a variety of inks, Safety Orange, Blue Yonder, Gumdrop Green, Steel Grey, Electric Red, Chocolate Brown and Latte, die cutting each of the images..

Whilst at the die cutting station, I took Gumdrop Green card stock and using the grass die from the Mailbox die, I die cut several grasses to add to the inner inked panel on my card..

Next, was to complete my card, by adding me little creatures to create my little scene..

Have fun checking out all the fun creations..







Gosh it is speeding through this release for MFT…today we are sharing projects for Day 3..

I am using the cute set called Meant to Bee, it is just the cutest…

I took the stamps out that I wanted to create with and stamped and coloured with Copics, die cutting these out and setting aside..

I then took the latest background stamp called Honeycomb Background..inked it up with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder onto a trimmed piece of white card stock..

Once it was embossed, I took Lemon Chiffon ink and applied some ink to the centre of the card..

I added my images and completed the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock that I then die cut around using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips…

I cannot wait to use this set more, it is just so darn sweet..

Have fun looking at the rest of the teams creations for today..

I will be back with Day 2 tomorrow..
