Well can you believe we are now halfway through the March Release Countdown at MFT..

I have another fun card for you today and even more wonderful product..

Don’t forget to check out even more creations and products over at the Blog..

I chose to use 2 new products together on this card, Scripty Smile Die and Caticorn stamp set..

Colouring in one of the cute little cats and adding some blush to the little cheeks, die cutting out and setting aside..

Whilst still at the die cutting machine, I took several layers of white card stock and on each of these I ran the Scripty Smile die through each, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension..

Next, I took a white panel and masked off an area in the middle, inking the masked area with After Midnight ink, once I was happy with the inking I flicked some Copic white over the top to create stars in the sky..

I completed this card by adding my image and die cut and then stamped another sentiment onto white card stock adding this below the die cut..

Thanks for taking the time to comment here again, I look forward in bringing yet another card tomorrow..

Have a relaxing crafty day!

Well thank you for all your lovely comments from my Day 5 of the March Release Countdown for MFT, so nice to pop into my blog and see all these beautiful comments, so appreciative..

So today is Day 4 and we have even more installed for you today, so be sure to pop on over to the blog to see what’s installed..

I have a little ray of sunshine on my card today using the Straight Up Rainbow, that cloud I mean seriously, who wouldn’t smile seeing that cut face..

I chose another pastel coloured card, to which I die cut strips of Tickled Pink, Sno Cone, Lemon Chiffon, Peach Bellini and Grapesicle card stocks, I also die cut Black Licorice and a little more Tickled Pink to add behind on my white cloud..

I then took a white panel and added even more clouds using the Cloud Stencil with Blue Breeze, backing this to a Grout Gray Frame that I die cut using the Framed die..

Whilst at the die cutting machine, I die cut the word Smile out of Black Licorice card stock and also a sun from the Rain or Shine set..

I added my Straight Up Rainbow to the inner section of the Framed area, along with the sentiment Smile and Sun..

I completed this card by stamping another sentiment from the Bitty Birthday set and die cut using the Skinny Strips and lastly, adding a scattering of sequins..

Have fun checking out all the amazing creations and products for today!

Hello there

OMG!! Can you believe we are already in March, I mean seriously can it just slow down a bit, I do have to say in other ways I am pleased we are in March as that means for us here in Australia we are now in Autumn and that makes this gal very happy indeed!

Okay so enough babble, how about we start you off on the March Release Countdown over at MFT, there is many mind blowing products for this month and I have to say my favourite of the collection would have to be of course the latest from Birdie Brown called Unicorns and Glitter, I mean total overload of cuteness..

Be sure to head to the blog to check out what the rest of the team have been using and sneaks of new some of the latest products being released this month..

Now onto my card, I knew I wanted to create using these sweet little images, so I stamped and coloured in soft pastel colours with my Copics then die cut the images out and set aside..

I then took some white card stock and using the Framed die that is also being released, I die cut a panel, this gives a soft score line frame and the inner portion die cuts out, to which I added Tickled Pink, Lemon Chiffon and Berrylicious inks to..

I added this to my card base along with my little images and stamped a sentiment onto white card stock, placing this towards the top of the card..

I completed this card by adding sparkle stamping out stars with White Tooth Pigment Ink and some White and Clear Gelly Roll dots..

I will be back again tomorrow so be sure to swing by..

Have a great day, with loads of crafting..

Hi there

Time for another Sketch Challenge at MFT and I sure do hope you will play along they are so fun to play with and stretch your crafty skills..

So pop along HERE to check out how to play along for a chance at winning..

I chose to use the sweet Puddle Jumper from the Birdie Brown Collection, I stamped this little sweetie out and coloured with Copics, I die cut out and with the umbrella section, I paper pieced using some pattern paper from the Candy Land paper pad..

I then trimmed down a piece of Cement Gray card stock, to which I used the a stencil to add the effect of Raindrops, now I apologise as I think this may have retired and I thought that it was still current…

I added this along with a strip of Black and White Stripes pattern paper to mimic the sketch itself..

I then added my little puddle jumper and lastly added a sentiment from the Birdie Brown Greetings to the top part of the Cement Gray card stock..

Enjoy your crafty time..



Hi there

I am back again today to share in the latest Sketch Challenge at MFT, be sure to head over HERE to see loads of inspiration and details on how you can play along for a chance at winning..

I took an older set from Birdie Brown collection called, Adorable Elephants, I mean who could resist water colouring these little images..

Working on a background, I took a piece of white card stock and applied Tickled Pink ink through the Candy Stripes Stencil, turning the stencil once to create a soft plaid look..

I then stamped a sentiment at the base of this inked panel from the Birdie Brown Greetings, then ran it through the die cutting machine, die cutting using the Starry Night Vertical..

I added my little images and to another white card panel, I took strips of Tickled Pink card stock along with white card stock, adding these strips and then the main panel to complete the card and match this weeks sketch..

I sure do hope you will have some time to play this week..

Have a great crafty day!



Hi there

It’s shopping day! I hope you have all enjoyed this months countdown..

Today we share even more creations but with some friends around the crafting community are joining in the fun too..so be sure to head over to the blog to see what our friends have created..

I chose to use the Free Die when you spend over $60 called You Take the Cake..

I die cut into a piece of white card stock, to the back of this die cut, I trimmed down Berrylicious, Limelight, Tropical Teal and After Midnight strips of card stock, adding to each word, creating colour blocking..

I then trimmed a piece of Grout Gray card stock and using the Number Jumble Background stamp, I stamped and embossed with White Embossing Powder..

I added my You Take the Cake panel, adding this to the middle of the background stamped card stock, adding this to a white card base and finishing off with some sequins..

This is a great way to not only use up scraps, but yet another great male card but one that you can switch the colours out to be female, rainbow, soft or neutrals for the same effect..

Enjoy checking out the rest of the creations and have fun shopping..
