Hi there

YAY!! Final day of the countdown is here at MFT, tomorrow you will be able to purchase all the fun goods for September..

I have another card for you today and there is much more over on the blog so be sure to swing past..

I wanted a really CAS card today, letting the background and sentiments shine..

So using the All the Stars Cover Up die, die cutting a panel of white card stock, then adding the panel to more white card stock, with the stars that fall out, I added these back into their spaces with foam tape to give dimension..

I moved onto the sentiments, to which I stamped and embossed onto Limelight, Summer Splash and Wild Wisteria card stocks, using sentiments from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude set, die cutting each of the sentiments using the Skinny Strips die..

I added my sentiments to the front of the card and finished this card by adding a bit of sparkle using some Sequins..

Thanks for swinging past today and all through the week, I will be back tomorrow with MFT and Friends..

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there

Have you all had a wonderful weekend, hope with lots of crafty time..

Speaking of crafty time, have you started writing out your lists for the latest release coming from MFT? There are so many goodies and I cannot wait to share Day 2 with you all, don’t forget to pass by the Blog to check out what the rest of the team have created for you all..

I took another of the Birdie Brown stamps called Favorite Teacher, stamping out the teacher and colouring in with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took some white card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting letters ABC out of the Impact Alphabet..

I then took a piece of Black Licorice card stock and using the symbols from the Favorite Teacher and Lessons in Love, I stamped and embossed with White Embossing Powder, trimming down the piece and adding to a white panel along with pattern paper from the Watercolor Wash..

I then added my teacher and finished the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment onto some After Midnight card stock to which I then die cut using a flag die from the Blueprints 31, adding this above the teacher..

Have fun checking out even more new product and inspiration today..

Hello there

We are halfway through the September Release Countdown for MFT and today I am sharing a floral card using the Floral Focus..

What a beautiful stamp and I knew it was time to pull out the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, something that I have not used in a long time and was so nice to create with again..

So I stamped out the stamp onto some Bristol Smooth paper and embossed with White Embossing Powder..

I then went about water colouring the image in..

To complete the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude onto some Cement Gray card stock, embossing with White Embossing Powder and backing this piece with a strip of Ripe Raspberry..Adding the sentiment down the other side of the stamped image..and lastly some Nuvo Drops..

Please pop over to the blog to see the rest of the DT creations..

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there

So I am back with my last card share for this month for Clearly Besotted, I have enjoyed this time so so much and I cannot wait to share sneak peeks of what will be install next month..

Don’t forget to head to the blog to see the rest of the teams amazing creations and their You tube channel too for amazing colouring..

For this card I used the super adorable Hippo Halloween, these add to the already line up of cute Hippos they have in stock..

I chose my little hippo on the broom, stamped out and coloured with Polychromos..

I then took a white panel piece of card stock, die cut a circle out of masking paper, adding this to the white card stock and taking Lawn Fawn inks, Sunflower and Sugarplum, giving the circle a soft glow..

Within the circle I took the Fright Night Stencil, adding spiderwebs using some black ink and then added some little bats to complete the circle..

I added my little flying hippo and finished off by taking some Wild Wisteria card stock, stamping a sentiment and embossing and die cutting using a speech bubble, adding this to the top portion of the circle..

Thank you all so very much for stopping by this week as I share sneak peeks from the up coming release for Clearly Besotted, I hope you all enjoy your shopping when they go live on the 1st of September..

Hi again

Back with my second post and sharing the start of the MFT September Release Countdown..

Today, we share Day 5 so be sure to head over to the blog to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations..

I decided to use the cute set Sweater Weather in the Woods along with the Knitted Sweater Background..

I stamped out the sweet bear from the set and coloured him in with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took a white panel and inked up the Knitted Sweater Background with Kraft ink, wiping away some of the ink before stamping onto the panel, as I wanted it to be a soft background effect..

Once this was stamped I then took one of the dies from the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames and embossed into the card stock..

I added my little bear and completed the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment onto a banner from the Blueprints 29 that was die cut from Black Licorice card stock, adding some twine and placing panel onto an After Midnight card base..

Have fun checking out all the amazing creations..
