Today here on the little old blog is day 2 of the March Card Kit sharing for MFT, super sweet kit and I sure hope you are enjoying what you have been seeing from the design team..
I have to say I am struggling card creating at present with being quite sick, but trying I guess and I guess with the simple card I shared with you all yesterday, you all loved and I cannot thank you all enough for the lovely comments you have shared here on my blog and my social media outlets, means so much :)
So onto today’s card, keeping the look pretty simple but with a bit of impact..
I stamped out the flowers that I wished to use on the card, coloured in roughly with Copics and added some detailing with white gel pen, die cutting out and setting aside..
Next, I trimmed a piece of Smooth White card stock down to be slightly smaller then the card front, and taking some Summer Splash ink I applied a small area so that the area below the flowers there would be a soft glow..
I then took a piece of Black Licorice card stock and a sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments, this stamp set is contained within the kit, I inked up with Versamark and embossed the sentiment to one side of this card stock, adding this strip to the white card stock, then went about adding my flowers so they would hang down under the strip..
To add more to the card I took the Hello die from the Thanks and Hello die set, die cutting several layers of Cement Gray card stock and adhering each layer together, adding this to the other side of the sentiment on the Black Licorice strip..
Completing the card by adding a scattering of Clear Sequins..
Now time for you to head on over to the MFT Blog to see more inspiration..
Are you all excited to see the new card kit that is up for grabs this month at MFT?
I created a fairly simple card using the Doodle Flowers stamp set that is contained in this kit and was super inspired by my dear friend Laura Bassen, so much so that I am calling this card the Laura card :)
I chose to use some Smooth White card stock and inked up with Versamark several of the flowers from the stamp set, stamping over one side of the card and applying white embossing powder…once I was happy with how many were stamped out, I took Tropical Teal and Summer Splash and applied ink over the embossed area, making sure to feather off at the end to give a soft look..
I then took the word Hugs from the Twice the Hugs die set and die cut several layers out of white card stock, adhering each layer together, then with the blended card stock I took the die once again and die cut into this..
I layered the card onto a white card base and with the hugs die, I put his back into the die cut space and stamped a sentiment out onto Black Licorice card stock from the sentiment stamp called More Essential Sentiments contained within the kit, die cutting it with the Interactive Rectangle Word Window..
Lastly, finishing my card off with Clear Sequins…
I hope you will pop on over to the blog today to see more fabulous inspiration from the design team..
I will be back with Day 2 of the Card Kit tomorrow..
Hope you all had a great weekend, I sure did, spent time with wonderful friends at a craft retreat, I must admit, not as much crafting as there was sight seeing, laughs, plenty of good food and fun times for me..
Whilst I was away however I did create today’s card, which is Release Replay time for MFT..
I share a card using not just the new stamps in the March release but also some of the new Distress Oxide inks and they are super fun to play with..
I took a piece of white card stock and applied Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick and Walnut Stain, I blended these colours together until I was happy with the over all look and I have to say, they blend like butter…I flicked some water over the top to help the oxides wick, I know I need to do a lot more play with these but they were fun..
It was time to take out some images and stamp and colour these in, so I took the Critter Clan images and die cut these out once coloured in, I also die cut Black Licorice card stock several times using the Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge Frames, adding this to the blended card stock, along with the coloured images..
To complete the card I took one of the sentiments from the stamp set, inking up with Versamark and embossing with white embossing powder onto some Kraft, die cutting this out using the Stitched Sentiment Strips and my card was complete..

I am sharing two cards with you today..
The first one features the Easter Friends, Stitched Notes, Friendship Sequins and a older product called Scallop Borders..choosing to colour in the images that I wanted to use with Copics, die cutting out and taking the Stitched Notes, using the outer portion to create a frame and with the inner part, I die cut again with some pattern paper, adhering to a card front, adding a stamped sentiment from the Easter Friends set, along with a tag from the Stitched Notes and completing by adding some Kraft card stock to the base, my images and a scattering of Friendship Sequins..
The next card, I kept very simple focusing on the stamps and dies…
Stamping out Friends Forever images, colouring in with Copics, die cutting the Scallop Square Tags with Cement Gray and re die cutting it with Sour Apple card stock, adding a grass bank on the tag..

Today I get to share a card with you all that was apart of the last months card kit Lock and Key along with a new product released this month called Fishtail Flag Frames..
I kept the card pretty simple, by die cutting into a piece of white card stock, the largest lock, turning this into a shaker by adding a piece of acetate on the back part of the die cut section, adding foam tape around so that the sequins would stay in place..
I added the sequins, both clear and gold and on another piece of card stock, I blended Abandon Coral distress ink, giving it an ombre look, sealing up the shaker section with this card stock..
I then die cut a key out of Gold Sparkle card stock and a heart out of Electric Red Card stock, adding both of these to the lock..
Finishing off the card, by adding a sentiment from the Essential Sentiments onto the Fishtail Flag Frames, adding a strip of Electric Red card stock to the base of the card to balance out the heart and lastly a scattering of clear sequins..
I hope that you have enjoyed this release and that you have fun shopping..be sure to swing past the blog to check out what the rest of the DT have created for inspiration for today..
Gosh those 5 days went really quick sharing the release for MFT..

Today, I share a card using last months card kit called No Place Like Home..
I chose to use the dies from the Home Sweet Home, I took several different card stocks, Electric Red, Chocolate Brown, Sno Cone, Factory Green, Black Licorice and Kraft along with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot pattern paper, die cutting the different dies that I wished to use..
Whilst die cutting I took a piece of white card stock and created a window for the house and scene to sit in, die cutting using the Peek-a-Boo Window..
I then went about adding my scene and completed my card by adding a sentiment from the No Place Like Home that I stamped with Electric Red Ink..
