Well hello again

I hope you all have had fun shopping the latest release from MFT, plus I hope you have just as much fun creating with it all as I have this month..

We now move into some challenges for the month and the first one is the Sketch Challenge, current sketch 419, to view details on how you can enter for a chance to win and loads of inspiration, click HERE..

I took one of the images I had in my stash that I had coloured in the past from the Hog Heaven, I coloured these images using some Polychromos and even though he is rather a very pink pig, I still think he is super fun..

To follow the sketch I took some Homespun Gingham, trimmed a piece down and ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting a circle using the Inside and Out Stitched Circle, adding this piece of pattern paper to the card front using some foam tape for dimension..

I added my pig and fence and stamped a sentiment into the circle..

Next, I trimmed more pattern paper from the Homespun Gingham and added it to the base, along with a stamped sentiment strip and some twine..

I felt that the circle was a bit bare, so I quickly coloured up a balloon from the Somebunny set and added it as if the pig was carrying it along..

I look forward to seeing your creations this week..

Have a great day!

    nearly had a typo – almost typed in BIGPONG! LOL. I did have a shower this morning. LOL> Okay – I just want to cuddle your cute little piggy. Love the card – it’s adorable, in fact I seem to say LOVE an awful lot in my comments to you. Thanks so much for sharing your considerable talents for card making with the rest of us.ReplyCancel


Today is finally here, the day to put your wish lists into action and start the buying process and I sure do hope you have a fun time doing so..

We are back again today along with some friends of MFT to share more inspiration for you using the January Release..

I chose to use Rainbows and Unicorns, stamping out the sweet little images and colouring with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

Next, I worked on the background piece of the card front, by using some Post-it tape, I taped off the edges of the card stock and using the Mini Cloud Stencil along with Blue Breeze ink, I added a cloud feature..

Onto more die cutting, I took a Stitched Heart Stax and die cut out of white card stock, adding this to the front of the card panel..

I then took Sno Cone, Lemon Chiffon and Tickled Pink card stocks and ran them through using the Once Upon a Rainbow, for the clouds I die cut white..

I added these to the heart then added my little coloured images, I completed this card by adding a scattering of sequins and a sentiment at the base..

Be sure to head over to the blog to see who is joining us this month and the inspiration from the Team..

Have a fantastic day and happy shopping..

Hi there

Gosh we are now at Day 1 this release has gone by so fast, I am sure you are just itching to create with it all..

I am sharing a little project today that actually is not a card..

I decided to take the Friendly Fox die and create a little stuffed toy, one that you could easily add some string to create an ornament..

I chose to create a grey fox, so die cutting different pieces for the assembling of the fox out of Steel Grey, Black Licorice, Sweet Tooth and Bubblegum Felt..

I ran the main body section through the die cutting machine twice and did a blanket stitch around the edge, adding some wadding to make him puff out a bit, I then glued the other pieces onto the main body and my little foxy was complete..

To add to his look, I was kindly gifted some Hershey Chocolates from beautiful Kim and so I took the Nugget Label and die cut pattern papers from the Sweet Stack, wrapping these around a few of the Hershey’s..

I really do hope you will have fun shopping which is now only a day away, please jump over to the Blog to check out the rest of the DT creations..

Have a fabulous day!

Hi again

Inching ever so close to being able to purchase I sure do hope you have loved the inspiration so far this month..

Today we have reached day 2 of the countdown and I share a card created using the free die for the month called Straight from the Heart..

To start this card off, I trimmed a piece of white card stock, to it I added a trimmed piece of Cotton Candy card stock along with a layering of Vellum that I embossed with white embossing powder the Scattered Hearts Background..

I then moved onto the heart to which I took a scrap piece of white card stock and blended Tickled Pink ink to, adding Ripe Raspberry ink over the Lots of Hearts Stencil, die cutting the Straight from the Heart…and with the arrow I die cut Gold Sparkle, adding the arrow through the heart then to the vellum..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment to a white piece of card stock, sentiment from the Tweethearts stamp set and backed it with some more Gold Sparkle card stock, adding this under the heart on the card and a scattering of Clear Sequins..

I do love to layer different elements together at times, just to give a different look and a great way of using many different products..

Now time to hop on over to the blog to see the rest of the inspiration..

I will be back with Day 1 tomorrow..


  • Andrea Hastilow

Welcome back to day 3 of the release countdown and today we are now halfway through sharing the amazing products this month, be sure to head to the blog to view loads more inspiration..

I used the latest Pure Innocence stamp set called, So Much Love..

Of course I coloured the skin, hair and shoes with Copics and the rest I paper pieced using the latest paper pad called, Sweet Stack..

I added her to a white card base and to the side of her I took the heart dies from the Tweethearts adding some that I had blended some light pink to..

At the bottom of the card I added another strip of pattern paper from the Sweet Stack pad and embossed a sentiment on Black Licorice card stock..

Very simple look to today’s card but one that the pattern paper comes alive..

I look forward to bringing you more tomorrow..


  • Teresa Doyle

I hope you enjoyed day 5 of the countdown yesterday and today we move you onto day 4..

I chose to work with the new Birdie Brown set called Cute Chemists and cute it is..

I stamped out the little boy and coloured with Copics, die cut out and set aside to work on the rest of the card..

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock and stamping the molecule stamp in various places on the white card stock, I then embossed with white embossing powder and once set I took distress inks, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord and added some blending over the top, giving the impression of a test going wrong..

I then embossed a sentiment onto black card stock and added in along the base..

To complete the card, I added my coloured boy and some white gel pen dots..

Remember to swing past the blog to see what else everyone else is up to..

Have a great day!
