So it seems my blog wants to be naughty and not send out my posts again, super frustrating, not to mention very naughty as I now cannot find the post, so I am having to rewrite it…so after realising it had not gone out, it is really late and I apologise..
So without further ado, here is the card for the first day of the card kit sharing…
This kit is just beautiful, I adore butterflies and I was super excited to play this month, but of course my mojo decided it was going on hiatus, so they really are not the best cards this month LOL but I hope you find something of value in them..
I stamped out a butterfly, layering the different components with Peach Bellini and Cement Gray, I was going with a soft feel to this card, perhaps and wedding or engagement card…I then took some vellum from the kit and used the die Stitched Fancy Flourish, sticking with the die cutting I die cut Smooth White card stock from the kit with the Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges 2 and adhered to a card, I added the flourish and butterfly and below this I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set contained in the kit, adding a line of pearls under the scallops to give it an extra touch, of course the Inks, Pearls and Dies that were used are not contained within the kit, but of course it shows you how you can create with accents from the MFT store…
Be sure to swing past the blog and check out the rest of the teams amazing creations..
Once again, apologies for my blog post disappearing and it being rather late going up..
Fingers crossed for tomorrow :)
Today marks the February Release Replay for MFT…
I chose to work with the little Pure Innocence stamp set, one in which I did not get to use within the Countdown, such a sweet little girl..
I kept the card pretty simple, but one I hope provides some inspiration to you all…
I trimmed down a piece of white card stock and applied Summer Splash and Limelight inks to create a grass and sky effect…I then die cut the word Friend from Words for Friends into the bottom part of the card stock, setting aside to stamp out the little girl, colour with Copics and paper piece her dress using the Tiny Check Brights pattern paper adding some shading to the pattern paper dress and adhering to the little girl, then die cutting her adding her to the grass area on the card and using one of the sentiments from the stamp set, I stamped the sentiment on the other side of the girl, foam mounting this to a white card, adding the extra pieces from the R and D back into the word Friend and completed my card by adding some sequins..
More from the DT over on the blog what they created for today’s Release Replay..
Tonight I wanted to pop in and share my latest card for this weeks sketch..we are currently up to number 319, and there is still time to play along..
I chose to work with several dies and stamps from MFT…
I took some Cement Gray card stock and inking up the Lined Up Dots Background with white pigment ink, stamping the front of the Cement Gray card…I then took some Watercolor Wash pattern paper and die cut with Inside & Outside Diagonal Stitched Rectangle, adding this to the card front.. I then took Lemon Drop card stock and die cut the Sunny Skies die trimming part of the sun off, adding this to the pattern paper, next I moved onto adding a fence line and so I went about die cutting Kraft card stock out of Farm Fence die, adding a partial fence line, behind the fence I added a tree that I stamped and coloured in with Copics from the Farm Friends along with a pig, that was placed on the other side of the fence..to complete the card and trying to replicate the sketch I stamped a sentiment from the Essential Sentiments and die cut around it with the Stitched Sentiments Strips..
I hope you find some time to enter this weeks sketch, for loads more inspiration from the DT and also participating customers just head over HERE..
Have a great rest of the day!
The day has finally arrived, YAY! for shopping days, I just know you will love February release from MFT..
Today I share a sweet little card that I created a little scene using the Birdhouses and Cloud 9 dies…
I took some white card stock and using the Post-it tape, I taped off the edges of the card stock and applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, once I was happy with the blending, I flicked water over the top…set this aside to dry and went about die cutting several parts from the Birdhouses, Cloud 9 and Jungle Friends from Cement Gray, Coral Crush, Sno Cone, Sour Apple and X-press it card stocks…I added these die cuts to the blended area and completed my scene by adding a sentiment from the Lots of Hugs stamp set..
I hope you have enjoyed viewing everyone’s creations on the DT, there are more install today, so be sure to swing past the Blog to view them..

Hello there again
Last day of the Countdown Release for MFT, so tomorrow is the big day of the purchasing side of things, I sure hope you have your list ready..
Today I have a fairly understated card, very simple and one that you could make a production line of and make a big batch of..
I created this card using the Fancy Flowers stamp and die set along with the Words with Friends dies…
I stamped and embossed a flower twice onto card stock and using the inks Coral Crush and In the Buff, I applied ink in the areas that I wished the colours to be, I then die cut one and with the other I trimmed out the centre piece at the top of the flower, adhering together and setting aside..I then trimmed down a piece of Black Licorice card stock that I then die cut the word Hugs to one side of the card stock, adding this to a piece of trimmed white card stock, adding some twine at the top of the black strip and at the bottom I stamped out a sentiment from the Lots of Hugs stamp set in Cement Gray ink, finishing the card off by adding my flower and some enamel dots..
Be sure to swing past the blog to see more inspiration, I will be back again tomorrow with the release day..
Busy time here on the blog today…
Sharing news that I have joined the Design Team at Pretty Pink Posh for another term…the sweet Paulina asked me if I would like to stay on and what could I say, it was a yes, I of course with family issues this past year and well still continuing it was hard for me to share many Pretty Pink Posh creations with you all, hoping things will run a bit smoother this term and I get to share more with you all, as I adore her designs and of course bling bling bling, I use sequins on almost all of my cards..
I had shared a sneak peek of the card that I am sharing with you all tonight on Instagram, but knew an announcement was upon us, so have held it back for the special occasion tonight..
I used the sweet little fox from the Fox Friends and the rest of the stamps came from the Camping Friends set…I stamped out the images that I wished to use and coloured in with Copics, die cutting them all out with the matching dies and set aside to work on my background..I took a piece of white card stock and applied Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire to the card stock until I was happy with the blend, flicked water droplets over the top and once dry, I applied some white gel pen dots as addition to give the sky a night time feel..I added my images and then of course loads of sequins and a sentiment to complete the card..
I hope you enjoy viewing the card and once again thank you Paulina for asking me back for another term, so honoured to work for you and work alongside an amazing team..
To honour the reopening of the shop and the new announcement of design team members, Paulina is having a giveaway that you can check out HERE..
I will be back with another post for MFT tomorrow, be sure to scroll down under this post to view today’s card..
