I am back here tonight to share the latest Sketch Challenge for MFT we are now up to number 354..

I love seeing what you all create so I hope to see more this week, for more inspiration or details on how you can create for a chance to win, just click HERE..

I kept mine very simple this week, stamping out a succulent plant from the Sweet Succulents, colouring in with Copics and die cutting out..

Next I took the Stencil Framework and Biscotti Ink applying over a trimmed white piece of card stock..I die cut into this panel using the stitched rectangle die out of Blueprints 30..

Trimming some pattern paper strips from Dots & Stripes Neutral, adding these along with the stencil card stock to a white card base..

I then added my succulent and stamped out a sentiment from the same stamp set, die cutting around this using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips..

Lastly, I added some Biscotti ink to some white card stock  and die cutting a little heart from the Sweet Succulents dies

Catching a little bit more crafting before bed, hopefully will be in bed once this goes live..

Have a great crafty day!

Back today with the MFT Release Replay, sharing more inspiration using the October Release..

I sure hope you are enjoying all your goodies now and started to create many amazing cards..

I chose to create another Christmas card using the new set from Birdie Brown called Happy Pawlidays..

I stamped out the sweet little dog carrying his stocking, along with presents and baubles , coloured in with Copics and die cut out..

I then worked on the rest of the card, using the Snow Globe die, I die cut into trimmed white card stock, just die cutting the top part of the snow globe..

Next, I took Cherry Crisp ink and inked up a sentiment from the Handwritten Holidays, stamping in the top right hand corner of the card stock, I added this panel to a card base using foam tape and went about adding in my little images..

I completed the card by stamping another sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments onto more white card stock and die cutting around this by using the Oval Word Window Frames, adding this under the other sentiment..

Be sure to swing past the MFT Blog to check out what the rest of the team have created for more inspiration..

Have a fabulous day!

Tonight being Wednesday we start a new Sketch Challenge at MFT..we currently at 353 and we hope you will all have a chance to play along, for more inspiration and how you can enter the challenge for a chance to win click HERE..

I chose to use the Party like a Pirate, stamping out the images and colouring them in, then die cutting and setting aside..

I then took a piece of Kraft card stock trimmed it to be slightly smaller then the card front, stamping and embossing with White Embossing Powder the Whimsical Waves Background stamp..I then took my corner chomper and rounded 2 corners at the top of the card stock and to stick with the sketch, I took the Inside & Out Stitched Circle and die cut a circle feature that was partially off to one side of the card stock..

On a piece of white card stock, I took the Mini Cloud Stencil and applied Blue Breeze ink to form a cloud background..

I adhered both the Kraft and the Inked background together and adhered my little images along with some stamped birds..

I completed my card by stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Big Birthday Sentiments onto some Sno Cone card stock, die cutting around the sentiment with the Essential Speech Bubbles and adding to my card..

Looking forward to hopefully seeing loads of creations this week in the challenge…

Have a fabulous rest of the day..

Hi There

The day has finally arrived, those wish lists that you have all been making you can finally start your shopping at MFT, I so look forward to seeing what you choose and what you create with it all..

Today the team are sharing more inspiration for you all with the New Product Launch..

I am sharing a creation using the Dashing Deer and Snow Globe set..

I chose to keep my fairly simple, by taking a piece of Sno Cone card stock, trimming it slightly smaller then a card base and along the top of this piece I stamped the mistletoe and embossed with White Embossing Powder, this was from the Dashing Deer set..

I then die cut into the panel using the snow globe and on a piece of white card stock, I die cut the base of the snow globe and die cut a snow bank out of the same white card stock..

I then moved onto stamping out the images and colouring them with Copics, die cutting these out and started to assemble the card..

I foam mounted the Sno Cone panel to the white card base and added my images and die cuts..I then stamped a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments and on another piece of white card stock, I stamped another sentiment from Dashing Deer to which I die cut around this using Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, adding this sentiment to the base of the card and my card was complete..

I have enjoyed sharing my creations with you all this month and I thank you for taking the time to swing past and have a look, for the ones that always leave me comments, thank you, you always brighten my day..

Enjoy your shopping..

We are almost there, the MFT October Release Countdown is live tomorrow, so we have one last day to share more inspiration for you all..

So that begins our day 1, I chose to move away from some Christmas card making and worked with a bit of love..

Speaking of love, I created the whole card around the Huge Love die..

Firstly, I took some white card stock along with some Tickled Pink and Ripe Raspberry inks, I then looked at the Drifts and Hills stencil and even though it is supposed to be used for that purpose of creating snow drifts and hills, I chose to also use it to create a fun background feature, by apply the inks and overlapping one another to create a pretty effect, so always look at different ways that you can use your product, that means you get more out of your purchases..

Once I was happy with the look, I took the Huge Love die and die cut into the inked panel, keeping the letters, I foam mounted the panel to a white card base and with the letters I adhered directly to the card base so that there was dimension between the two..

I then stamped a sentiment and embossed with White Embossing powder onto Black Licorice card stock, this sentiment came from the X’s and O’s stamp set..I die cut around the sentiment using the Slanted Sentiment Strips, adding this under the Love die cut..

I completed the look to the card by taking some Ripe Raspberry card stock and die cutting some hearts using the Tic Tac Toe set, adding these to the end of the love die cut..

Don’t forget to swing past the Blog today to see more inspiration from the team..

I will be back tomorrow for release day!

I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the October Release Countdown for MFT..I am sure those wishlist’s are being written madly and the choosing of what products that you really wish to play with is getting exciting..

Today we have reached Day 2 and today I have used the sweet little Pure Innocence called Nice List..

I kept this card pretty simple with addition of other products to compliment this little girl..

I stamped her out and coloured her in with Copics, die cutting her out and stamping once again onto some pattern paper from Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright, hand cutting out the dress only and paper piecing onto the main image, setting her aside..

I then took some white card stock and the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 2, die cutting a panel out to which I then stamped and embossed with White Embossing Powder the word Falala and snowflakes from the new stamp set called Handwritten Holiday, once it was set I took Blue Breeze ink and applied over the top part of the panel, giving the embossed resist look..

I added my little girl to the one side of the panel and taking a sentiment from the Snow Glob Sentiments, stamping onto more white card stock and die cutting around using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, adding this sentiment under the embossed one..

I completed the card by die cutting another piece of the same pattern paper using the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 2, mounting the main panel to this and then onto the card base, adding a Sno Cone snowflake that was die cut from the Let it Snowflake Too and twine to complete..

Have fun checking out the rest of the DT projects today, they really are super awesome..

Enjoy the rest of the day!
