Hi there!

It is that time of the month again where the team at MFT share the latest releases from the Vault..

I start you out with Day 1 and sharing the Pure Innocence, Love is in the Air..

I stamped her out and coloured with Copics, skin, hair and shoes then went ahead and paper pieced her dress using pattern paper from Over the Rainbow..

While die cutting I chose to die cut a white piece of card stock using the A2 Rectangle Frames, with the inner section I took the Cloud Stencil and adding Tickled Pink ink to this panel to create the cloud background..

I also die cut a Stitched Heart from some Tickled Pink card stock..

I took a white panel and trimmed another piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns to be slightly smaller then the white panel, I adhered the pattern paper along the the inked panel and frame..

I added my heart and little girl and finished off this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock and die cutting this with Skinny Strips, adding this above the girl..

I will be back with Day 2 tomorrow, I hope you all love what you start seeing today!

Been awhile since last here, well it seems that way…I hope you have all been crafting up a storm..

Whilst you are crafting how about come and play in this weeks Sketch Challenge at MFT, to check how to enter for a chance at winning and more inspiration to get you started just click HERE..

I chose a very simple layout, following the sketch and adding some..

So to start out I trimmed down 3 strips of Sno Cone card stock and with the middle piece I ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting the stars from the Stitch-able Falling Stars, adding each of these to a white card base..

I then worked on the images that I wished to use of the card and took the Nurse from Calling the Shots along with her other medical images and coloured in with Copics, adding these to the card front also..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock from the Bitty Thanks and Gratitude and die cut around this using the Skinny Strips, adding this to the top of the card…

I chose to add my panel to an After Midnight card base and my card was complete..

I sure do hope you have fun playing this weeks Sketch..

For now enjoy your day and I will be back again soon with even more for you to view..

    Wow! What a great card! I love your Copic coloring, especially the gray hair (another, and more emphatic WOW!!), although you did a great job on her scrubs as well. I really like your use of Sno Cone cardstock because it’s the pretty cousin to the institutional shade of green often used in hospitals and, last but not least, I like what you did with the three strips of the Sno Cone; the first being down to the “floor” for the nurse to stand on, the second much shorter and given some dimension with its falling stars, and the third strip being given even more dimension. It’s just all around perfect! *** I’d love to know or even better – see, how you did her hair. I could really put it to good use. Have a YouTube video out here somewhere? ***ReplyCancel

Hi there

Finally, day of shopping for you, I hope you had your lists ready for what you would like to purchase from the MFT January Release..

I have 1 final card for you using the products from the release and we also have some friends around the crafting community joining us, so be sure to head over to the blog to see what everyone has created..

I chose to work with Trendy Tag and Sweetie Pie dies, matching these with some older products..

So I started out with all the die cutting, to which I took the Trendy Tag, die cutting a white, Kraft and Tiny Check pattern paper, adhering each of these layers together..

I then worked on my little pie, which I die cut from Kraft and Milk Chocolate, adding a piece of white under the top of the pie section, where the vent holes on a pie would be, adhering each of these together..

Next, I die cut several layers of Cement Gray with the word Sweetie Pie, adhering together..

Lastly, with the die cutting I took some Grout Gray and took one of the Elegant Rectangle, adding a smaller die and embossing inside this panel..

I then switched over to stamping, taking a white panel and inking up the All Lined Up Background stamp with Lemon Chiffon ink, trimming this panel down to the card base..

I then started to add the layers of die cuts and completed the card by adding a twine bow and some enamel hearts..

I hope you find loads of inspiration from the DT this month and that you have even more fun creating..

Have a fabulous crafty day!

Hi there

Firstly, before I start the post for Day 1 of the Release Countdown at MFT, I just want to thank each and everyone of you of your continued prayers, thoughts and also donations that seem to be pouring into our beloved country over these horrid and sad fires that are still raging, from me personally, I cannot thank each and everyone enough xx

So onto the post for today, today is the last day of sharing creations from the DT so be sure to head to the blog to see even more..

I chose to work with the Freebie Die when you spend over $60 called Lots of Love along with some images from Kissing Booth..

I stamped out the images first and coloured with Copics, die cut out and set aside..

Whilst at the die cutting station I took the Lots of Love die and ran through the die cutting machine several times, die cutting white card stock and with the top layer die cutting Gold Sparkle, adhering each layer together to form dimension..

Next, I took a panel of white card stock and blended inks, Wild Wisteria, Tickled Pink and Kraft together to give a soft hue, die cutting into this using the A2 Rectangle Frames, adhering the outer section straight to the card front and the inner section adding foam tape to and placing inside the outer part..

I added my images and die cut work and completed this card by stamping and embossing with white embossing powder sentiments from the Kissing Booth, adding these also to the card front..

I will be back tomorrow with MFT and Friends and sharing even more from the January release, I hope you are ready to shop til you drop..

Have a great day!



Hi there

So today has been an incredibly hot day with a max temp of 47 degrees, so in Fahrenheit 116, darn hot, with fires raging here in Australia and watching what is unfolding my heart breaks for everyone involved, currently we are safe, but the odd fires have popped up…please can I ask you all to keep everyone in your thoughts..

So today being super hot, it was really hard to craft, but non the less I managed to pull a card together to share with you all, that card is another card for the Release Countdown at MFT and we are halfway through..

Be sure to head to the blog to see even more amazing creations..

I chose to work with the Pure Innocence, Soft Place to Land..

Colouring my image with Copics and die cutting..

I then took a white panel of card stock and stamping several hearts with Tickled Pink ink from the Cute Conversation, adding a sentiment down one side of the stamped hearts from the Smitten with You…

I finished the card by adding my image and a scattering of sequins to match..

I will be back again soon with yet another card from the countdown..

Have a wonderful day, please be safe where ever you may be..

Hi Again

Today at MFT we are sharing the January Release Countdown Day 4 and have even more wonderful products installed for you, not only more products but even more creations from the DT so be sure to head over to the Blog to check them all out..

I created a card using the new Stacey Yacula stamp set called Kissing Booth, such sweet little images..

I stamped and coloured my images with Polychromos, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took a white panel and added Blue Breeze ink to the bottom half of the card stock and set this aside..

Next, I headed over to the die cutting station and using the Freebie die of the month when you spend over $60 Lots of Love, I die cut the word several times ending with the top layer of Silver Sparkle card stock..

I added my word at the top of the inked panel along with my little images and completed this card by stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Smitten with You stamp set onto Black Licorice card stock, die cutting around the sentiment using Skinny Strips and adding this to the very base of the panel..

I will be back again tomorrow with even more fun inspiration..
