Hello

Thank you all for the lovely congrats and wishes on me joining the fabulous MFT team, was so nice to wake up to all these lovely comments here on my blog and on social media..I have to say I am still pinching myself :)

So today marks the countdown to the July release and boy are you going to love..so many wonderful products this month…

NewReleaseCountdown_Day5

I start off with the release with LJD Celebrate with Cake stamps and dies, along with Transparent Triangles Background..

Joy-Taylor-MFT-July-2016-Day-1

I wanted the cake to be more of a wedding cake feature and bring elegance to the card, so I chose to stamp out the cakes themselves onto vellum and emboss with white embossing powder, the stand I just die cut out of some Peach Bellini card stock…setting theses aside, I worked with the Transparent Triangles Background stamp, stamping with white pigment ink onto some Grout Gray card stock, that I die cut from a background piece from Blueprints 27…Once this was dry, I adhered the cake to the card stock and added some pearls to the cake as decoration, along with die cutting some hearts also from the Peach Bellini card stock…I stamped a sentiment out onto Black Licorice card stock, embossing with white embossing powder, adhering this to the card and finishing off by adding some white gel pen dots in between the triangles that were stamped on the background card stock…

Be sure to visit MFT for loads more inspiration from the Design Team, also don’t forget to comment there for chances to win prizes..

Thanks for popping in today, I will be back with Day 2 of release countdown tomorrow..

I have loads to share over the next few days so be sure to swing past and have a look..

For now I will leave you with this cute little shaker card I created using the Hog Heaven stamp and die set..

Hog-Heaven-MFT-Joy-Taylor

 

I chose to use Spun Sugar and Scattered Straw, blending these colours together to form a soft background feature…I then die cut a sun using Sunny Skies from Banana Split card stock, adhering this to the background…I created the shaker part I die cut the Peek-a-Boo die out of white card stock, sealing up the cut out with acetate, adding foam tape to the back, adding in Pretty Pink Posh sequins and sealing up…next was onto stamping out the cute little pig and fence with my copics, adding these to the shaker along with a stamped out sentiment that I embossed with white embossing powder..

I cannot tell you how honoured and blessed I feel in having been asked to join this amazing team of talented and hard working girls…

Okay, time to settle in for the night, it is like ice outside, so I am snuggled up in front of the TV watching some mundane shows..

Have a fantastic day!

Hello and Happy Friday..

We have a lovely long weekend here this weekend, I decided to take an extra day off work and so a lovely 4 days off for me, looking forward to playing in the craft room and catching up on some house work..

Sitting here tonight in front of the TV and decided to finally share my Jungle Friends cards with you, I was given a Card Kit from MFT to work with and sadly I haven’t had a chance to share my projects until now..

MFT-It

I have two cards for you, this first one, I kept really simple, die cutting the cute little Elephant from Jungle Friends dies out of some Homespun Gingham pattern paper, whilst I had this pattern paper out I die cut some Scenic Safari, creating hills for the little elephant to stand on, of course some grass was needed in this little scene, so I die cut some out of Dots & Stripes Fresh pattern paper and began the process of putting the card together…realising the scene needed some sort of background to anchor to, so I embossed a Stitched Rectangle Stax die into white card stock, adding my pieces of die cut pattern paper images and then moved onto stamping out a sentiment from the Jungle Friends stamp set, embossing it with white embossing powder, completing this card by adding some Pretty Pink Posh, Mossy sequins and some twine..

MFT-Jungle-Friends-Joy-Taylor

The next card, I so wanted to use the Surf & Turf dies to create another scene but an interactive scene, die cutting circles out of pattern paper, on the bottom section of the circle, I die cut one of the slider dies into this to add my little die cut elephant to slide along..of course I had to add a giraffe, tree and grass out of card stock, then went about adding all the pieces to the circle features…I was so excited when I managed to get the little elephant to slide along, it really is so cute..all the card needed to finish was a sentiment from the Jungle Friends stamp set, that I embossed onto Black Licorice card stock..

I do hope that these cards give you inspiration on using the Jungle Friends stamps and dies or the kit that you may have purchased…

Time for me to go see what Bentley and Darryl are up to..

Enjoy your day and as always thank you so much for stopping by..

Hugs

Hi there

So the last day of the Lil’Inker Designs release for June and I sure hope that you have found loads of inspiration from the blog hop and given you food for thought when purchasing also :)

You should have arrived from Karen’s blog and if you have lost your way, not to worry, there is a list at the bottom of this blog post for you to follow…

Joy_Coffee-Talk--Coffee-Word-Dual-Dotted-Border-Watermark

Sharing another 2 cards with you all today and the first being a coffee card, if you love coffee then the Coffee Talk stamp and die set are a must…I decided to keep my card fairly simple, just stamping out a coffee cup, colouring and paper piecing, adding this to a white base that I had embossed the Dual Dotted Border Builders and I can’t tell you how much this die set is a must in your crafting supplies, I know it is going to have a lot of use in my crafting, so that was embossed at the bottom, with the cup above and then I die cut the word Coffee out of black card stock several times to give dimension and a stamped sentiment to match along with a scattering of pink sequins..

Joy_Hello-Beautiful-Watermark

This next card was a cute little birdy set, of course I wanted the bird to be sitting on the wreath from the Warm Welcome dies, so I die cut 2 of these out of white card stock and set aside to work on the bird, I used ombre ink and smoke inks to stamp out the bird from the Hello Beautiful stamp set, of course there are matching dies, but I chose to stamp mine slightly different, so hand cut this out..

I decided the card needed another feature so I used the border die that was in the Hello Beautiful die set along the bottom, adding a sentiment above and then adhering the wreath and bird along with some sequins to complete this card….

So it is time to head on over to Stephanie’s blog to see what gorgeous work she has produced for us and of course if you have lost your way, just look at the list below to follow again..

Hello

WOW! thank you so much for all the lovely comments I have been receiving with this new release for Lil’Inker Designs, it is always a pleasure reading the comments and finding that what I create inspires you all…

Today reaches day 2 of the new release and today of course, I have another 2 cards to share with you all..

First up though on the hop you should have arrived from Chrissy’s blog today, if you have lost your way of course I will have a a list at the bottom of this post for you to follow..

Joy_Mirror-Mirror-Fringe-Scalloped-Border-Builders-Watermark

The first card today that I am sharing is from a stamp set called Mirror Mirror, I wanted this card to be a real girly girly card, so I took some white card stock and embossed a sentiment from that stamp set with silver embossing powder and then decided to ink blend Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry together onto one side of the card, once I was happy with the blended result I splashed some water droplets over the top to make the ink wick..

I then die cut through the whole piece of card stock using the Fringe Scalloped Border Builder die, and attached each of these pieces to the card base, I then die cut several layers of card stock using the Mirror Mirror die set, the final die cut on top was out of some grey glitter paper, adding a bow to the mirror for the final look, I attached this then to the card front along with some sequins to complete the girly girly card..

Now I need to mention here, that there is some Mirror Card Stock that is available at the moment in the store and if you purchase through to the 12th of June, adding both Mirror Mirror stamp and die set in your purchases you will receive a free pack of this mirrored paper, be sure to add this code at checkout MIRRORMIRROR and remember you have to purchase both stamp and die set at the same time in order to receive, otherwise you can purchase on it’s own :)

Joy_Perfect-Pairs-Watermark

So my next card, featured Perfect Pair stamp and die set, these of course have already been in the store for purchase, but we are sharing these with the June release..

I kept mine pretty simple, adding a circle feature at the back of the main image, using the Dual Dotted Circles and blending Scattered Straw over the top, to give a soft look to the card, I then stamped out a pair of peas and carrot, coloured in with my copics and added these to the circle feature, finishing off by stamping out a sentiment onto black card stock and embossing with white embossing powder…

Do remember to comment on each blog for a chance to win a $15 in store credit..

Carousel June 2016 New Release

So you should have arrived from Amy’s blog, if you have lost your way you can check out the list at the bottom of this post..

So today, I have 2 cards to share and I just adore this first one, I really think it was my favourite of this release..

Creating a little baby card using the Warm Welcome stamp and die set, along with the Warm Welcome Word die..

Joy_Warm-Welcome-Watermark

 

Stamping out the scribble circle wreath in Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp and die cutting the scribble wreath die out of white card stock, adding this to the top of the stamped section, next was to add flowers to the wreath, so of course I stamped out some flowers and die cut them out, adding these along with some pearls to add a soft touch, to complete the card, I added several die cut word welcome together, the top layer was die cut from some glitter paper to give a sparkly touch and stamping a baby sentiment under the wreath itself…such a sweet baby card..

Joy_Fringe-Scalloped-Square-Sassy-Script-Watermark

The next card, I created a very simple CAS look, die cutting a square feature into white card stock, using the Fringe Scalloped Squares Dies, die cutting the square on an angle to create a window feature…taking some pattern paper and die cutting a flower from the Spring Flowers Die set, adding this to one corner of the window feature, inside on another piece of white card stock, I stamped out my own sentiment that was from the Sassy Script stamp set, this stamp set totally ROCKS!! Finishing the card by adding this to a navy card base and a splash of sequins…
