Hi there

The day has finally arrived, you can head off HERE to purchase the March Release from MFT

I hope you have enjoyed the last few days of inspiration, we have 1 last day of inspiration for you, so be sure to check out what the DT have been up too…

I have a creation today with lots of new product, starting out using the Love You Furever, super cute kitties, I stamped them out coloured up with Copics and die cut out..

Still at the die cutting station, I took several layers of white card stock and ran it through die cutting the the Friends Duo set, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension..

Next, I die cut some Triangle Stax out of Steel Grey, Cement Gray and Grout Gray..

I adhered the triangles to a trimmed white card, making it a focal point on the centre of the card, I added the word friends along with the kitties..

Finishing off by adding some Silver Sprinkles..

Thanks for stopping by these last few days and leaving lovely comments, I hope that you have been inspired to start creating with the March Release…

Have a wonderful day!

Actually, cat cards often get pegged as feminine cards, but I think this one would work well for any gender, which is great, because I have a brother and sister-in-law who I’m pretty sure their life goal is to be crazy cat people. This would be great for them. Thanks so much for sharing with us!ReplyCancel

Hi there

Almost time to shop the March Release for MFT, today marks Day 1 of the countdown and I have a simple card for you with a technique…

This is a great way of using up scraps of card stock that we all know we have in our craft rooms…

I took strips of Cranberry Cocktail, Ripe Raspberry, Cotton Candy and Pink Lemonade, I added these to a piece of scrap typewriter paper..

Next, I went about adding in the technique, by taking a leaf stamp from the Pressed Flowers stamp set, inking with Versamark ink and stamping over the card stock, giving it a ghost impression, the darker the card stock the better the result..

Once I was happy with the stamping, I ran this through my die cutting machine die cutting the word Smile…

I added this to a trimmed piece of white card stock and then stamped another sentiment from the Anything But Basic – Friendship onto Black Licorice card stock, embossing with White Embossing Powder..

Die cutting around the sentiment using the Slanted Sentiment Strips, adding the the card along with a scattering of Clear Sequins..

Be sure to swing past the Blog today to check out the rest of the design teams amazing creations…

Have a great day!

  • Anne Sturgeon

Back to work today sadly, but hopefully by the time I get home this post will be live and you will be reading all about day 2 of the March Release Countdown for MFT

Inching closer, to view more inspiration be sure to head on over HERE to see what the rest of the team have been up to…


I have pretty much a one layered card for today and using some soft tones using in blending…

I took a piece of white card stock, trimmed it to be slightly smaller then the card base and using the Basic Shapes – Triangle Stencil, I began to add the soft colours of Summer Splash, Pink Lemonade, Peach Bellini and Lemon Chiffo, building up the triangles around the centre of the card…

Next, I stamped a sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock, embossed with white embossing powder, sentiment from the Anything But Basic – Friendship set…I die cut around the sentiment using the Fishtail Flag Frames, adding this to the centre of the card..

I completed the card by adding some Clear Sequins…

Apologies for the blurry photo, I will update a new one when I get home :/

I will be back with Day 1 tomorrow, in the mean time, enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi and Happy Weekend!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, we sure are, yesterday we went for a long drive and visited some towns along our travels, great day and today is a little card making and possibly a little sewing in my nook of the cottage…

But before I head off into my nook, I am sitting here typing up my post ready for scheduling…

Today marks the halfway point for the March Release Countdown at MFT, that means it is day 3..

I am sharing many new products on my card today, starting out by stamping images from the cute Hoppy Friends, colouring in with Copics and die cutting out…

Next, I took some Homespun Gingham pattern paper and die cut into the panel using the Elegant Rectangle Stax, adding this to a white card base that I had applied Pink Lemonade ink to the base…

Back to the die cutting station, I took several layers of white card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting the word Friend, the final and top layer I die cut using Gold Sparkle card stock, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension..

I added the word Friend to the top of the card and my little hoppy friends to the base, in between the 2 I stamped a sentiment onto white card stock and die cut around this by using the Essential Speech Bubbles..

Finishing off the card by adding a scattering of sequins..

Have fun checking out the rest of the Teams amazing creations, I will be back with Day 2 tomorrow..

Hello again

I hope you enjoyed the start of the Release Countdown at MFT yesterday, today I bring you day 4 of the countdown with loads more from the design team also..

I decided to create with the latest from the Birdie Brown Collection and what cute little rabbits..

I stamped out my sweet little ones and coloured with Copics, die cutting them out and setting aside..

Still at the die cutting station, I took the A2 Rectangle Stax 1 and die cut a piece of Kraft card stock, along with die cutting a white border using the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle..

I stamped out some bubbles with White Pigment Ink, colouring inside the bubbles using some Prismacolored pencils…

I stamped a sentiment and embossed with White Embossing Powder in the left hand corner..

Next, I added the white frame to the Kraft card stock along with my cutie bunnies and then added the whole panel to a white card base..

I look forward to seeing you all back here tomorrow…

Have a great day!






Excitement time again at MFT, the March Release Countdown begins, time to start taking out that pen and paper to write down those new products that are on the wish list for purchasing..you will love!

I start you out today with a fun little card using the Delightful Dinosaurs Set..

I stamped out the the dinosaur that I wished to use, coloured him up with Copics and die cut out..

Whilst still at the die cutting station, I took the Stitched Alphabet dies and some Sno Cone card stock, die cutting the word RAWR, making sure to die cut around 4 of each letter, adhering these together to form dimension..

Taking a piece of white card stock and the Inside & Out Stitched Circle Stax, I die cut into the white panel, with the negative piece I applied Orange Fizz ink, flicking water over the top to make the ink wick…

The last of the die cutting was to die cut some grass feature out of Farm Fresh Gingham using the Mailbox die..

To assemble the card, I adhered the white panel with foam tape to a white card base, adhered the Orange Fizz circle back into the positive space, I adhered my grass feature at the base of the circle along with a strip of the same pattern paper, added my dinosaur and completed the card by stamping a sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock with White Embossing Powder, adding this below the RAWR word that I had added to the top of the card..

Don’t forget to swing past the blog today to see the rest of the teams amazing creations…

Have a great day!
