Back again today to share Day 2 of the MFT September Card Kit called Snow Globe, I hope you loved yesterday’s inspiration from the design team, to see more today be sure to click HERE..

Today, I created a shaker card using the snow globe shaker pouch..

I took the die for the house first and die cut all the pieces to piece the house together, die cutting out of Wild Cherry, Black Licorice, Sour Apple, Kraft, Sweet Tooth and Lemon Chiffon, I set this little house aside to work on the rest of the card..

I took a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock and die cut off to one side of the card stock, the die to form the snow globe, I then die cut some Blueberry card stock using the Snowfall Vertical, adding this to the base of a white card..

I added my little house to one side and then added some Diamond Dust, sealing this up with the out part of the shaker..

Next, I die cut the base of the snow globe out of Wild Cherry and on some Gravel Gray card stock, I stamped and embossed a sentiment, adding this strip to the base of the snow globe..

I completed this card by die cutting some snowflakes from Stylish Snowflakes adding this to the card front, along with some Clear Sequins and added a strip of pattern paper at the base from Hearts and Stripes..

Enjoy all the inspiration today, I will be back tomorrow for the reveal day…

Have a great day!

Hello Happy Monday

That weekend went by way too fast, but so looking forward to inching a little bit closer to my holidays and speaking of holidays, have you all started your holiday card making for Christmas as yet?

If not, the latest MFT card kit called Snow Globe should help you start those cards..

It has so many wonderful dies to create little scenes and the perfect sentiments but what’s even better, if you love making interactive cards then you will love the snow globe shaker component..

I chose to keep my really simple but with impact..

So I took the little snowman and die cut his body as well as all the other little parts that made him up out of Sweet Tooth, Black Licorice, Orange Fizz, Milk Chocolate and Wild Cherry, I put him all together and set him aside..

I then took Grout Gray card stock and die cut a piece using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 die, I added my own background feature by stamping several sentiments over the card stock and embossing with White Embossing Powder, I added this to a Gravel Gray piece of card stock that was cut with A2 Rectangle Stax die, then onto a white card base..

Next, I took the snow bank dies from the Snow Globe set and die cut snow banks out of white card stock, adding this to the stamped panel along with my little snowman..

I completed the card by stamping another sentiment onto more white card stock using Wild Cherry ink and die cutting out with the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips and added a scattering of Sparkling Clear Stars

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations and I will be back again tomorrow for day 2 of the countdown to the card kit release..

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh September Product Release Blog Hop…

I hope you all had fun yesterday checking out all the amazing creations from all the designers in the list…

Today we have another line up of amazing artists that have created wonderful and unique creations with the latest release from Pretty Pink Posh, to view the list of blog hop participants I will have them at the bottom of this post..

You should have arrived to my blog from the Pretty Pink Posh Blog and I am going to start you out today with 2 creations, so let’s begin..

This first one, I could not go past the sweetest set of reindeer’s, so appropriately named Reindeer Friends..

I took out the stamps I wished to work with, stamped and coloured with Copics, I then die cut these out and worked on the rest of the card..

Taking white card stock and Storybook 1 die, I went about die cutting the panel, the inner sections I applied a light layer of ink to and onto the largest panel to one side I stamped a sentiment..

I added some twine around the middle section of the die cut and added this panel to another piece of trimmed white card stock, adhering each of the inner sections with foam tape for dimension..

I then added my little reindeer’s and presents and completed this card by adding some white gel pen to act as snow falling and Clear Sequins

My next card I created using Angel Friends, the most adorable set ever..

I chose to stamp out these sweet angels and colour in with Copics, now most of the time we colour angel wings with a light blue, but I wanted something a little different so decided to colour with a light pink..I die cut these out and set aside..

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock and the Window Frames and die cut off to one side of the card stock, with the inner part I applied light pink ink..

I attached another piece of white card stock to the outer frame, die cutting one of the Stacked Edges 1 forming a snow bank, I adhered this panel as well as the inked panel to a white card base..

I then took some grout gray card stock stamped and embossed with white embossing powder the banner from the Angel Friends stamp set, on the inner part to the banner I stamped Merry Christmas in silver embossing powder…

I added the banner to the inked panel and my angels around the banner, under the banner I added Clear Sequins and feeling that the card was not completed, I chose to stamp out another sentiment onto more grout gray card stock and add this to the bottom of the card..

I hope you have enjoyed viewing what I have created for this special blog hop..

Now there will be 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 9/19/2017. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog, so be sure to comment along the way..

Hi there

It is that time of the week again and at MFT it is time for the latest sketch, we have finally hit number 350, to find out how you can enter to win or needing some inspiration then head over HERE..

I kept to the sketch this week….using the Up in the Air stamp set..

To start out as I normally do, I stamped out the images that I wished to use and coloured with Copics, die cutting these and setting aside..

I took some white card stock and the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil adding Summer Splash ink over the stencil and to the card stock to create my own background pattern..I die cut into this panel with Circle Stax dies and trimmed both ends off to match the sketch..

Onto another piece of white card stock, I took pattern paper from Homespun Gingham, trimming small strips and adding strips along with the stenciled background to the white card..

I added my little images to the circle spaces and completed the card and sketch by stamping a sentiment onto more white card stock, die cutting this out using Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips..

I cannot wait to see what you all create this week, have fun creating!




I hope that you have all enjoyed the latest release from MFT and today the team get to share more inspiration for you all with Release Replay..

I chose to use the Rooting for You bear, stamping him out and colouring with my Copics, die cutting him and setting him aside..

I then decided that I need a tree as I wanted to create a scene, so I took the tree and also some more carrots from the Animal Farm, stamping these and colouring also with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

Next was to create and die cut things for the scene, so a fence was a must, so I took Kraft card stock and die cut the Animal Farm Fence, along with some clouds from Spring Scene Builder and whilst I was die cutting with the Spring Scene Builder I applied some Sour Apple ink to white card stock and die cut the grass from this die set..

More die cutting, I took another piece of white card stock, applied Berrylicious ink to a die cut circle and then cut the bottom of the die cut off, adding this to a white card base..

I added my grass, fence, clouds and the coloured images to this partial circle feature to create my little scene and finished with stamping a sentiment from the Rooting for You at the base..

Sadly, my mojo is still away and if you do find it, send it my way, it is so frustrating..

Enjoy viewing the rest of the teams amazing creations..



Hello again

Back again tonight to share the next installment in the Sketch Challenge, currently sitting at 349..

To check out how to enter the challenge and to view the wonderful creations from the team, just head over HERE..

I decided to play with the Flamazing stamp set, so I grabbed one of those cutie flamingos and stamped it out with Tickled Pink, Bubblegum and Steel Grey inks, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then moved onto the next part of the sketch and that was to create my little framed area, so I die cut several layers of white card stock, using the Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle die, with the top layer of the frame, I first blended Summer Splash and Lemon Drop ink to the card stock first and then die cut and adhered the frame to the white ones..

The inner part of the blended card stock I stamped some water feature from the Flamazing stamp set and adhered all these pieces to a trimmed white card stock..

Next up was to blend a little bit more onto some white card stock using Limelight ink and die cutting using the grass die from the Mailbox die, adding this to the framed feature along with my flamingo..

To complete the card and sketch, I took Cement Gray card stock, stamping and embossing a sentiment and die cutting using the Slanted Sentiment Strips..

I look forward to seeing what you come up with this week..
