Hi there

It is time for a new card kit and this month at MFT we are sharing a really sweet kit and I know you will love it..

I chose the sleeping bunny in the moon from the Sky-High Friends stamp set and coloured in with Polychromos, die cutting and setting aside..

I then took a panel of white card stock and took the Circle Extroidinaire and added After Midnight ink within the negative space and before removing the stencil I added White Tooth Ink and added clouds using the Mini Cloud Stencil..

Whilst allowing the ink to dry I stamped a sentiment onto white card stock and die cut around using the Skinny Strips…

I added my little bunny and sentiment and completed this card by adding some sequins and glitter gel pen as more stars in the sky..

Remember to pop on over to the blog today to check out what everyone has created with this cute card kit and I will be back tomorrow with Day 2..

Hi there

Hope you are all having a great day!

I am back to share the latest Birthday Project, why not join in another fun Challenge this week and make some great birthday cards with a gift on the front, in the form of a gift card..

I chose to use the Gift Card Pocket die that I die cut out of white card stock..

With another panel of white card stock, I took Jellybean Green, Coral Crush, Peach Bellini and Cement Gray and added these colours over the Basic Shapes Circle Stencil, die cutting into this and adding one of the pieces to the bottom of the Pocket of the gift card..

Whilst I still had these inks out, I took some Peach Bellini and added some soft blending to another white panel, flicked some water over the top to make the ink wick and then added the gift card pocket..

I stamped out one of the cute girls from then New Best Friend set and added her to the pocket..

I added a sentiment and I added a slight twist, sometimes we need to thank a friend as well as gift them a birthday present, so I added a sentiment from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude set and die cut using the Skinny Strips, but on the inside of the card, I will write a beautiful birthday message that has that little thank you but big birthday wishes..I forgot to photograph the inside of the card but here is where you can always change up your card and make the inside just as beautiful..

I completed this card by adding some sequins and my card was complete..

Have a great time crafting..

Hi there

That time of the week again and a new Sketch Challenge begins at MFT, so why not pull out all those stamps that you have wanted to create with and play along, more details HERE for you chance at winning and inspiration to get you started..

I am using the Let’s Stick Together stamp set, as I really needed a male thank you card, so killed two birds with the one stone as they say..

I coloured in my image using Copics and added some shading areas with a black Polychromo Pencil..die cut out and set aside..

I followed the sketch using After Midnight and Electric Red on the card and added my little image..

Finishing off this card and sketch by stamping a sentiment from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude Stamp Set and die cutting around this using the Skinny Strips dies..

I hope you have fun playing along this week and joining the team in all the fun..

Have a fun crafty day!



Hi there

I then took a white panel and ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting the All the Stars die and added this to a white card base..

I added my little rocket and a sentiment that I stamped and embossed onto Black Licorice card stock from the Best Friends in the Universe…

I completed this card by adding a few enamel dots..

Hi there

Day 1 of July Release Countdown from MFT, I hope you have so much fun adding things to your wish list, be sure to head to the blog for more inspiration..

I worked on a really simple card for today and letting the image and pattern paper shine..

I took one of the dinosaurs from the A-roar-able stamp set and coloured in with Copics, die cutting him and setting aside..

Whilst die cutting I took a panel of pattern paper from the Party Plaids paper pad and die cut a circle using the Stitched Circle Stax..

I trimmed another piece of pattern paper from the Black and White Stripes and added a sentiment to the top of this, stamping onto white card stock..

I added the panel of pattern paper and then the rest of the elements and completed this card by adding some enamel dots..

Thanks for taking the time to swing past the blog this month I will be back again tomorrow for MFT and Friends..

I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the July Release Countdown for MFT, I hope you have loved what you have seen so far, for more today, don’t forget to head to the blog..

I worked with a couple of new items on my card for today..

The new Pure Innocence girl called Birthday girl to which I stamped out and coloured her in, then paper pieced her dress using a piece of pattern paper from the new paper pad called Party Plaid, setting her aside..

I then took Grout Gray and Lemon Chiffon card stocks and die cut the Frosted Cupcake, adding dimension using the extra pieces in this set, I also added a touch of white gel pen dots to the wrapper..

I added both the cupcake and the Birthday Girl to another piece of pattern paper from the Party Plaid and then to a white card base..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock, trimming off some of the sentiment itself as I just wanted the wording Birthday Girl and then added all this to a Grout Gray card..

Have fun checking everything out again today, I will be back again with Day 1 of the countdown tomorrow..
