Hi there

Are you all having a great day! Cold and wet here at the cottage today, not that I am complaining as it was nice to have some quiet time, wasn’t feeling that flash today..

Hoping later to jump into the craft room and play a little..

For now, I wanted to share another Pretty Pink Posh card, using some of the new products from the latest release, Sea Friends, Bear Hugs, Stitched Diamonds, Smile Shaker and Mermaid Mix were all the products plus extras used on this fun shaker card..

Seeing as I am right into colouring with my Prismacolored Pencils right now, I chose to colour in the sweet little Dolphin from Sea Friends, die cutting him out and setting aside..

Taking a piece of white card stock, trimmed slightly smaller then the card front and using the Stitched Diamond I die cut into this panel, I added some acetate and a double thickness of foam tape and added my sequins, sealing up the panel with another piece of white card stock..

I then die cut the Smile Shaker with several layers of Sno Cone card stock and trimming just the word smile out, added this to the top of the diamond..

Completing my card by adding my dolphin, a sentiment from Bear Hugs that I stamped onto white card stock adding under the word smile and realising the dolphin needed more grounding, so colouring in some seaweed and adding this to the card as well..

So many versatile products in this release and I cannot wait to bring you more inspiration…

Right, time to go get some dinner on and then I can play in the craft room..

Have a great day!







Hope you are all having a great week…

I am back again today with another MFT posting and this time the team get to share more inspiration using July Release products, today of course is called Release Replay..

Of course one of my favourite products of this month was those sweet adorable Hippos from Birdie Brown collection, the Happy Hippos was a must, I adore Hippos in real life and are one of my all time favourite animals..

So I stamped out one of the sweet little ones that was hiding a gift behind his back and at present I am really loving to learn to colour more with my Prisma Coloured Pencils, so I coloured him up and the Balloons also, I die cut them out and set these aside..

Taking some white card stock and the Happy Birthday Circle Frame, I die cut several layers and adhered together to form dimension, adding this to a trimmed piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front..

To the inner part of the circle, I added some numbers using the Confetti Numbers, die cutting from more white card stock..

I added a stamped sentiment to a piece of Black Licorice card stock and embossed with White Embossing Powder, adding this across the Circle Frame..

Lastly, I added my little hippo with balloons and my card was complete..

I hope you are all having fun with your goodies from this release and I look forward to seeing what you all create..

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the teams creations today for more inspiration..




So happy to be here today to share a fun blog hop with Pretty Pink Posh..

We have a fun line up of designers over the next 2 days sharing the fabulous Product Release for July..

I will have a a list of participants at the base of this blog post so if you loose your way, you should have arrived from May’s blog..

Now before I share my creations for the hop, I just want to mention that there are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 7/18/2017. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.. be sure to comment for a chance at winning :)

So I have 2 creations for you, so lets jump in and all products are linked at the base of this post..

This first card, I wanted to share a sweet little boy card, sometimes boy cards are hard for people to create, but I find the challenge quite an easy one and with this Fly Away Friends stamp and die set you just cannot go wrong..

I took out the images I wanted to stamp and colour, once happy with that process, I die cut them out and set aside..

I then took some white card stock and some Grout Gray card stock, die cutting using the Stitched Notes die, with the white inner section, I then took a Cloud Stencil and applied Mermaid ink..

I added both of the card stocks to the card base and adhered my little images..

Completing this card by adding a scattering of Sunny Days Sequins and stamped sentiments…

My next card, I chose to give myself some more practice using my Prisma Colored pencils and stamping out images from the Summer Friends stamp set, die cutting these out and setting aside..

Next, I took white card stock and the Smile Shaker die, running it through the die cutting machine several times, adhering each of the layers together and trimming out the word die from the frame..

On a piece of white card stock, I took some Summer Splash ink and applied a soft sky look to the centre of the card stock..

Adding my word die cut and images and completed the card by adding another sentiment from the Bear Hugs and scattering of Mermaid and Sunny Days Sequins..

I hope you really enjoy the hop over the next couple of days, I will be back again soon with another creation using this release, just so darn cute..

Now it is time to move on over to Joni’s blog, remember the list below in case you loose your way..

Hello Again

So have you all been shopping up a storm at MFT? So many great products this month, I sure do hope you will all grab what you are wishing for :)

So tonight, we have a new Sketch Challenge and we are up to 341..if you are wishing to participate for a chance at winning a voucher or need some inspiration to get you kick started, then head over HERE..

I chose to create my first Christmas card of the year and seeing as it is Christmas in July as we say this month, then I figured it was okay..

I stamped out the Warmest Wishes girl and coloured her in with Copics albeit frustrated with the blending, but figured she was okay to still use on a card :) I die cut her out and set her aside..

I took two piece of white card stock, on one of the card stocks, I blended Berrylicious Ink and die cut each of the ends with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges, adding this to a white card base, with the second piece of white card stock, I blended Blue Breeze ink and die cut this using the Single Stitch Line Square Frames, with the inner section of the die cut, I die cut Snowfall Vertical..adding this to the centre of the card front to match the sketch..

Placing my little girl off to the side as if she was catching the snowflake flurries and then stamped a sentiment onto a piece of white card stock that I die cut a banner from Blueprints 29..

Completing the card with a scattering of Clear Sequins..

Enjoy the rest of your day!


  • Dawn T

    What a totally adorable card JoyReplyCancel

  • Tara Prince

    So pretty! I love the colors!! Super sweet image too!ReplyCancel

  • janet

    Beautiful card Joy – amazing colouring :-)ReplyCancel

  • Your little girl looks fab to me! I absolutely love the image and colours! Also love the splattered snow:)ReplyCancel


The day is finally here, the day to go shopping at MFT for all your July Release products, I so cannot wait to see what you all get and what you will create, super exciting..

If you are still after more inspiration from the design team, then be sure to head over to the blog and if you are wanting to start your shopping you can go HERE..

I am back with my New Product Launch card with you and this one I had a lot of fun with…

I created my card around the Fierce Friends set…

As always I started out with stamping the images out and this time, I took out my Prisma Color Pencils, something I have not done in ages, I wanted more practice with them and I just really enjoyed the colouring process, so I will be doing more with these pencils in the future I feel…

Once I was happy with the look and depth of colour that I wanted, I die cut out and set aside..

I then took the Inside & Out Stitched Square Stax, die cutting into a trimmed piece of white card stock, that was slightly smaller then the card front..

I wanted a little sand dune or hill, so taking some Kraft card stock and the Ocean Waves die set, I die cut the card stock to look like the dune, adding this to the inside of the window feature..

Wanting a skyline, so taking a piece of pattern paper from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Pastels paper pad, adding this also into the window..

I added my little animal and trees and then moved onto adding some sentiments..

Taking some Orange Fizz and Cement Gray card stock, I added sentiments that I embossed with White Embossing Powder and Black Licorice Ink, die cutting from Blueprints 32 and also Essential Sentiments Fishtail Strips..

Have fun shopping and thank you once again this month for all the lovely comments that you have left here at my blog, so appreciated..

    I love using patterned paper to create elements –like sand dunes and sky! This turned out adorable. I am still working on my colored pencil techniques–it’s one of my favorite mediums and I really enjoy using them, but I deep forgetting to slow down and do lots of light layers! I have this tendency to start bearing down hard then I can’t add more color! Maybe if I just tried a really small element instead of a whole page of coloring book!! Hmmmm. I need to go dig through the stash…..right….now! Thanks.ReplyCancel

  • Sue LD

Oh my, how excited are you all getting, ready to start shopping, I hope you all have your lists ready to go for the July Release at MFT..

Be sure to swing past the MFT blog for more inspiration and see what else you can add to your wish lists..

I am back today to share Day 1 of the Release Countdown and today I have an elegant card..

I used the You Trio die set along with the Sketchy Flowers and All About You stamp sets..

I took two flowers from the Sketchy Flowers stamp set and stamped out several flowers onto Vellum, embossing with White Embossing Powder, die cutting these out and setting aside..

Next, I wanted a circle die cut with some glitter, so in order to achieve this,  I added some double sided tape onto some Insulation Pink card stock, taking some clear glitter I added this over the top once the release paper was removed and using the Inside & Out Stitched Circle Stax I die cut a circle..

Taking a trimmed piece of white card stock, I added my flowers around in a circle and placed my glittered circle on top..

All that was needed now was to die cut one of the cursive You dies out of several layers of white card stock, adhering these together and place in the centre of the circle, along with a stamped sentiment from the All About You set and completing with a scattering of Clear Sequins and adding score lines at the base using my Scor-Buddy..

I look forward to seeing you all again here tomorrow for New Product Launch Day..

Have a great day!
