Super excited to bring you this post for the Collaboration between MFT and Ellen Hutson for the United we Flourish..

I love that this campaign is happening because this community of crafters and companies is simply amazing, talented, generous and caring community..without the amazing companies that design fabulous products for designers and customers to create with, this community would not be where it was and on the other hand having this has brought together many people around the world to become friends, crafters and a caring and supportive place in the world of crafting, long let it live…

So today MFT and Ellen Hutson are sharing projects from their design teams using the Good Friends set in which you can purchase directly from Ellen Hutson..

I chose as always if you don’t know my style by now, very simple and let my sweet little cat and dog that I had stamped out and coloured with Copics shine..

I took some white card stock that I blended some Summer Splash ink onto and die cut using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 set, stamping a sentiment towards the top of the inked panel and adding my little images..

Working out I needed one more image so I stamped a balloon from Adorable Elephants, coloured with Copics, die cut out and added it to the cat as if he was holding a balloon..

I added a strip of pattern paper from the Party Patterns, in which I die cut a grass feature out of Spring Scene Builder..

Completing this card by adding a mat behind the main image die cutting another piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 set..

Welcome back to another Creative Construction with Blueprints challenge for MFT..

This month the design team are sharing creative ways on how to use those Blueprints that have directional elements..

I chose to create with Blueprints 13..

I first sorted out what image I wanted to add with my Blueprints and for this card I chose to stamp out one of the little pigs along with the flowers from the Sow Much Cuteness set, colouring these in with Copics and die cutting out..

I then took a piece of trimmed white card stock and adhered a twine belly ban around one edge of the card stock..

Moving over to the die cutting machine I die cut the elements from Blueprints 13 out of white card stock, with one of those elements I applied Lemon Chiffon and Summer Splash to the panel, once I was happy with the look I adhered to the other die cut piece and added this to the card stock with the twine..

My little coloured images were placed on top and then it was time to complete this card by die cutting a sentiment banner from Kraft card stock, the die also from Blueprints 13, embossing this sentiment with White Embossing Powder..

The final touch was a twine bow to add to the top of the belly ban..

I look forward to seeing what you all create for this challenge, don’t forget to head on over HERE to see what the rest of the team have created and for details on how you can enter this month for a chance at winning…



Hello again

Back again tonight to share the latest sketch challenge for MFT, current sketch is now 355, be sure to head on over HERE for loads of inspiration from the team and on how you can enter for a chance at winning..

I went with a boys card for this sketch, using the You’re Rawr-some set, stamping out the little dinosaur and colouring with Copics, die cutting out along with the tree and grasses, setting all these aside..

To one side of the white panel that I trimmed down, I added some Blue Breeze ink, the photo hasn’t really done it justice, but it is there LOL..

Needing a sentiment, so taking one from the same stamp set, I stamped and embossed with White Embossing Powder onto some Black Licorice card stock, adding it towards the base of the inked panel..

Adding my coloured images, arranged to replicate the sketch, well at least my take on it :)

The last thing was to add some enamel dots that I scattered around the images and the card was complete..

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi there

I hope you have all enjoyed the MFT shares from this month’s kit, today we are sharing the release so time for you shop.. plus don’t forget to go over to the Blog and check out the design teams amazing creations..

I created a simple card today using mainly the snowflakes that I wanted to shine..

I took a Inside & Out Stitched Circle and die cut into a panel of white card stock, with the inner part of the card stock circle I took Lavender Fields and Wild Wisteria and blended until I was happy with the look..

I then went to the die cutting machine and die cut several snowflakes and also the house, trees and snow bank from the Scenic Snow Globe, I added all these to my inked background..

I adhered the positive piece of white card to the card base and with the circle, I added foam tape so that it had dimension..

I finished off by adding a sentiment from Snow Globe Sentiments and then to add some sparkle I added some Clear Sequins to the centre’s of the snowflakes..

I hope you have fun creating with your kit and I look forward to your amazing projects..

Have a great day!

Welcome back and we are sharing creations today for MFT using the October Card Kit, I hope you all loved seeing the creations from yesterday and today we have even more installed for you, so be sure to check out the blog for loads more inspiration from the design team..

I kept this card really simple and let the snowflakes shine..

I die cut a small panel of white card stock using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 and still at the die cutting machine I die cut several of the snowflakes, in fact I think I used all the dies almost on this card, I added the snowflakes to the panel so they were flat but gave the effect of embossed background..

I then took some Sno Cone card stock and the next size up in the A2 Rectangle Stax 2, die cutting and adhering the white panel to the Sno Cone, I added this to a white card base..

Next was to add a sentiment that I embossed with Silver Embossing Powder, stamping a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set, die cutting around this sentiment using the Stitched Sentiment Strips..

Feeling as though the sentiment needed a little something else I die cut another banner using the Silver Sparkle, adhering this to the sentiment strip..

Finishing off the card by adding a little bit of twine that was from my stash to the edge of the sentiment..

I look forward to bringing you release day creation with you tomorrow, I hope you are all getting excited to purchase this fun kit..

Have a fantastic day, I am off to craft for the afternoon..

Hello there

I hope you are all having a nice day, have you been grabbing some crafty time..I sure hope to today, with being on holidays I am hoping to catch up and get ahead with some projects..

Speaking of crafting, today at MFT the new card kit starts the countdown, so today is day 1..

We are getting closer to Christmas can you believe, wasn’t it just Christmas the other day..so with Christmas we have a snowflake full of goodness in this kit..

My day 1 card, I chose to die cut 3 of the snowflakes out of white card stock, making sure to die cut 4 times of each snowflake, I adhered these together to form dimension..

On another piece of white card stock, I took Bubblegum ink and applied towards the top of the card stock, once I was happy with the blended look, I added my snowflakes..

At the base of the card stock, I chose to stamp out a little seal from Polar Pals, colouring him in with Copics and die cutting him out to add to one of the corners of the inked panel..

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments and die cut around the sentiment using the Oval Word Window Frames adding this to the card and finishing off the snowflakes with Clear Sequins..

Be sure to swing past the MFT BLOG today to check out what the rest of the team have created..

Have a fantastic day!

  • Nina Houghton

    I love your use of Copic markers. You have inspired me to start using them. However, the cost to acquire all of them at once is quite prohibitive. So I was wondering how you started your collection, which of the markers (original, sketch, etc.) you recommend, and what colors you would suggest starting with.ReplyCancel

  • So soft and pretty! Love it.ReplyCancel
