Time for another color challenge at MFT, we are now creating with number 81, to see more inspiration to help you join in the challenge and for details on how you can enter just head over HERE..

For my card, I created a little sunset desert scene card..

Taking the Single Stitched Rectangle Frames and ran it through the die cutting machine several times, adhering the outer frames together..

With the inner part of the die cut, I took one piece and adding ink blending with Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz and Grape Jelly, blending until I was happy with the look..

I stamped a sentiment onto white card stock and die cut around the sentiment using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips..

Moving onto the image, I chose to stamp out the horse from the Critter Clan, colouring with Copics and die cutting out..

I then took some Kraft card stock and around the centre of this card stock, I added some twine..

Next was the frame and inked panel, along with the horse and sentiment..

Looking at the card, I realised it was missing something, so I took Black Licorice card stock and stamped and embossed in White Embossing Powder the cactus from the same stamp set, adding this to the other side of the horse..

Looking forward to seeing what you all create with this Color Challenge..

Have fun!

Hi there

Back with another post and this time it is time for the current Sketch Challenge for MFT, we are currently up to number 358…

To see more inspiration and details on how you can enter this weeks challenge for a chance at winning, then click HERE..

I chose to steer away from some Christmas creating and decided that seeing as there are still some birthday’s that happen in November and December then it is time for a little birthday creating..

I stamped out the sweet little bear from Beary Special Birthday, die cut out and whilst at the die cutting machine I took some white card stock and die cut the Single Stitch Line Circle Frames several times, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension..

With the inner part of the die cut I took some Blu Raspberry ink and added some to the bottom half of the circle..

I then took some pattern paper from the Party Patterns, adding a piece to the bottom of the card front, then added my circle with the little bear and completed the card, by stamping a sentiment onto more white card stock and die cutting out of Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips along with a scattering of Clear Sequins..

I look forward to seeing what you all create..

Have a fabulous day!

The day is finally here to shop the latest release from MFT, I hope you have fun shopping which you can do so HERE

Be sure to swing past the blog again today though as the team has loads more inspiration for you using the latest products..

Today I had fun playing with You Make My Heart Spin, the cutest little set of Rabbits..

I firstly chose to create a background feature using the Hit the Slopes die, die cutting into sections a trimmed piece of white card stock and on each of the layers I chose to add a little inked section using the Blue Breeze ink, to give the effect of snow banks..

Once I was happy with the look, I took the stamps that I wished to colour up with my Copics, then I die cut these out, adding each of this to the snow banks to create a little scene..

I completed the card by adding a stamped sentiment and adding some Clear Sequins to the trees..

Thanks for all your lovely comments this month, I have thoroughly enjoyed each morning reading what you love about this release..

Have a fabulous day!

We are almost there, the countdown today is day 1 and that means tomorrow you get to shop..

I hope you have enjoyed what the design team have created as inspiration this month, for more check out the blog today..

I have yet another fun Christmas card, using the Ski-sons Greetings paired with the Peace die..

I took some white card stock and placing the Peace die I die cut through the card stock, whilst this piece of card stock was at the die cutting machine, I took the Snowfall Horizontal die and die cut into the top portion of the card stock…

Where the Peace word had been die cut I took strips of After Midnight, Cornflower, Blue Breeze, Berrylicious and Sno Cone card stocks and added this to the back so that it gave an ombre of sorts when you looked at the front, I added this to a white card base..

I then took one of the cute bears from Ski-sons Greetings, stamped out and coloured with copics, die cutting and adding him to the top of the word Peace..

I completed the card by stamping a sentiment onto some Sno Cone card stock and embossing with White Embossing Powder, then die cutting using the Stitched Sentiment Strips, adding this under the word Peace..

This release has been really fun to create with and I am so looking forward to seeing what you all create with the goodies that you purchase..

I will be back again tomorrow with Release Day!

Time is flying by for this MFT Release Countdown and today we mark it with day 2, are you getting your wish lists ready..

So today I created another Christmas card and kept the palette very minimal..

I used the main focus of the card to be Deer Love Die-namics..

Taking one of the deers and the antlers I die cut some Gold Sparkle card stock, adhering the antlers to the deer and setting aside…

Whilst still having some Gold Sparkle card stock out and at the die cutting machine, I took one of the snowflakes from the Let it Snowflake Too and die cut also 2 Ornamental Medallion Trio..

I then trimmed a piece of white card stock down and added some modeling paste through the Framework Stencil

Once this was dry I then added my 2 Ornamental Medallion Trio at the base, so that just a piece of the die cut was showing..

I then went about adding me deer and at the base of the card I took some twine and added 2 bows together, adding the snowflake to the center..

Finishing the card by adding a stamped sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments and some Clear Sequins for some sparkle..

I love the soft palette just by using mainly 2 colours, gives it a real elegant feel..

Okay time to jump on over to the MFT Blog to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations..

Have a fabulous day and I will be back with day 1 tomorrow..

Hello Again

Back today with Day 3 of the November Release Countdown for MFT…I just know you will love this release so many fun and really cute product this month..

Speaking of cute, I am sharing a card today based around the Friends in the Forest stamp and die set…really cute and so many wonderful cards can be created with this stamp line..

I chose a more Christmas feel to my card, by stamping out the little deer, colouring him with Copics and die cutting out, setting aside..

I then took a piece of Steel Grey Card Stock and die cut a circle that was placed more towards the left hand side of the card stock, I die cut this along with a white piece using the Inside & Out Stitched Circles

With the Steel Grey piece, I took the Scor-Buddy and added some score lines on the right side and on the bottom of the card stock…

With the white piece, I took the die from Hit the Slopes and die cut into the circle to create a snow bank

I added the Steel Grey piece to a white card base and went about stamping a tree from the same set using Electric Red ink..

I went about adding my scene to the circle piece..

Next, was to add a sentiment that I stamped and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder, adding this strip along the score lines..

I completed the card by adding a snowflake that I had die cut from some Gold Sparkle card stock, the dies I used were the Let it Snowflake Too

I hope you have fun looking at all the inspiration from the Design Team today, head on over to the Blog to check them all out..

Have a great day!
