Hello

Happy Monday to you all, I hope you are all enjoying the sneaks of the May Release Countdown for MFT..

To view loads of inspiration why not head over to the MFT Blog and see what the rest of the team have created…

I have a fun card today sharing news stamps and dies from Giraffing Me Crazy along with the Safari Tree, pairing it up with the Cloud Background stencil and older product Stitched Dome Stax, Scenic Safari and Jungle Friends..

I stamped and embossed my little Giraffes and coloured this time with distress inks, Fosslized Amber and Wild Honey along with a zig marker for the brown spots, I die cut these out and set aside..

Still at the die cutting station, I took some white card stock, trimmed it slightly smaller then the card base and took the Stitched Dome Stax, die cutting into the card stock, I also die cut another dome out of some Jellybean Green Card stock along with some grass features using Jungle Friends also out of the same card stock..

On the die cut dome, I took Summer Splash and the Cloud stencil and applied ink to create a background of clouds, then added the negative piece with foam tape to the card base and added the cloud background feature directly to the base of the card…

I then added the green dome piece that I die cut down to form a grass bank using the Scenic Safari die, making sure to extend the look of the dome, I added the Safari Tree that I die cut out of Jellybean Green and Kraft Card stocks, and then the grass along with my Giraffe’s..

Completing my card by stamping a sentiment at the base..

Super fun to create this card and I loved how cute those Giraffe’s are..

I hope you have fun checking out the rest of the teams creations today, I will be back with Day 1 tomorrow, edging that bit closer to the shopping day..

Have a great day..

Hugs

Hi

Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday, very overcast here today, not complaining, as it means a cozy day inside..

Today, is day 3 of the MFT May Release Countdown, that means we are inching closer to the release day..for loads of inspiration from the design team be sure to head to the blog..

I share a Pure Innocence stamp set with you today, this one is called Beach Day, I paired her up with Beach Scene Builder, Ocean Waves and of course the latest stencil called Cloud…

As always I stamped the images out that I wanted to colour with Copics and shock horror this month, I chose to colour the complete little girl and chose not to paper piece her this month as I would normally…die cutting everything out and setting aside..

I took a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front, taking the Cloud Stencil, which I might add is one of the best stencils ever, blending onto the background some Summer Splash ink to form a cloud background..

I then went back to the die cutting and die cut the palm tree from Beach Scene Builder out of Sour Apple and Milk Chocolate card stocks…whilst still die cutting, I took some pattern paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pad and using the waves die I die cut a piece to form the sand/beach..the last thing to die cut was some sea shells from the Mermazing die set out of some Sno Cone and Kraft card stocks..

I added both of these to the cloud background and then went about adding my other images, to finish the card, I added a sentiment and and another strip of pattern paper to the base of the card and my card was complete..

I will be back tomorrow to share more with you all…enjoy viewing the creations today..

Hugs

Hello

Happy weekend and a happy day it is as we continue the May Release Countdown for MFT

Have you had a chance to check out the inspiration on the blog, there will be loads more for today too..

My next card creation for you features the new line from Birdie Brown and you are going to love it, this set is called Mermazing, super super cute…

I created a little underwater scene for this card, I stamped out the mermaid and coloured her with Copics, not sure I got the colour I was after as she is a bit out there LOL but once I was finished I die cut her out and set her aside..

Whilst still stamping, I stamped out a rock for her to sit on and the various corals, shells and seaweed was stamped out in various colours of inks, die cutting each of these out..

I then took some pattern paper from the Dots & Stripes Fresh paper pad, using the Ocean Waves dies adding these to a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front, that I blended some Summer Splash ink to the background to look like the water…

I then went about adding my scene of stamped images and completed my card by stamping a sentiment onto the pattern paper and embossing with white embossing powder..

I cannot wait to create with this set again, so many possibilities..

Well I am off to get some more creating done, enjoy viewing all the creations today..

Hugs

Hi there

Woohoo!! it is the start of the MFT May Release Countdown, I just know that you will love this months release…

Lets get right into it…remember to view more inspiration just head on over to the Blog..

The card I created today was using Beach Bunnies which I might add are just adorable and Beach Scene Builder..

I chose to create a circle feature for my card, so I die cut 2 Circles and die cutting the Beach Scene out of one circle, adding ink to the water feature Summer Splash, then the beach itself with In the Buff, the other part I wanted to create a sunset feature, so I added Razzleberry and Orange Fizz…I then went about adding the blended parts of the Beach scene to the other circle, adding this to a white card base..

Next, I worked on adding a palm tree, die cutting some white card stock and adding Limelight and Milk Chocolate to this, adding it to the circle feature..

I really wanted to put a Beach Bunny on this card, but sadly I just couldn’t get the design to work together, so I opted to add some beach huts, stamping these out, colouring with copics and die cutting, adding them to the beach..

Lastly, I added a sentiment and my card was complete, certainly not to where I wanted it, but I hope that it does give you some inspiration as to what you can do to create with the fun Beach Scene Builder..

I will be back tomorrow with Day 4, enjoy your day!

Hugs

Hello

Popping in very quickly to share another card with you all tonight..

That time of the month again and it is the new color challenge for MFT and we are currently up to number 68..

To view how you can enter this challenge and want to see more inspiring creations, just head HERE..

I kept mine pretty simple and allowed the colours to shine, by die cutting the Stitched Heart out of the coloured card stocks, Lemon Chiffon, Orange Fizz, Blue Yonder and Blueberry..Die cutting into the white card stock also and adhering each of the hearts to match the colour combo..

To finish my simple card, I stamped a Llama from the Llama Love stamp set, colouring with Copics and die cutting, adding him/her to the card front along with a stamped sentiment…

Super simple, but I feel sometime the less you have the more the impact a card can really have..

I hope you will find time to join the challenge and I look forward to seeing your entries..

Have a great day, I will be back tomorrow with the Countdown Release for May..

Hugs

Hi there

How was your day?? Nice and quiet one here today, rained most of the morning and that was so lovely to see, had a massage and have felt rather sleepy all day since..

Before I head to bed, I wanted to pop in really quickly and share my creation for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at MFT..

If you are wanting more information about how to enter this weeks challenge or looking for more inspiration you can go HERE

I wanted a soft pastel palette for this card, so chose to use the stamp and die set called, Up in the Air, stamping out of course my images and colouring with Copics, then die cutting and setting aside..

Next, I trimmed a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front and using the Radiating Rays Stencil, I added a sun feature to the card with some Lemon Chiffon ink..

I then trimmed a piece of pattern paper from the Homespun Gingham paper pad and added a strip just under the stenciled feature..

I added my images and finished off by adding a sentiment to a die cut banner from Blueprints 21 and some Clear Sequins..

I will be back tomorrow for the next Color Challenge for the month..

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love here today, so nice to always read..

Have a great day!

Hugs
