Hi there

I cannot believe we are already in September and out here in Australia that means the first day of Spring too..

So MFT are here again with another great release and we start you off with countdown day 5…

I chose to use Animal Farm as the main feature on my card along with other new product, A2 Rectangle Stax 1 and Animal Farm Fence, all are the cutest stamps and dies and so versatile..

So as my per norm I stamped out all my images and coloured in with Copics, die cut them and set aside..

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock, placing one of the rectangle dies from A2 Rectangle Stax 1 into the centre and die cut to form a border, with the inner part of the die cut piece, I took the Radiating Rays Stencil and some Lemon Drop ink and applied to have sun rays..

I added this to another trimmed piece of white card stock and before placing the inner part back into the die cut area, I stamped my sentiment at the top..

I took some Kraft card stock next and die cut several of the Animal Farm Fence, adhering them together for dimension, trimming the fence slightly down to fit my card, adding it along the base of the where the sun rays began..

I added my little animals and trees to complete my card..such a happy little scene..

I hope you enjoy viewing what the team have created for the first day of the countdown, I will be back again tomorrow with another project..

Have a great day!

Hello there

Hope you are all having a crafty day, for me my mojo is missing in action so if anyone see’s it, please tell it to come home, I have deadlines due tomorrow and I have having troubles trying to create :/

That being said I do have a card to share with you all and I have the great honour of Guesting for Whimsy Stamps, what a fabulous company with so many great stamps and dies, both clear and red rubber stamps that are of high quality, so I recommend them highly..

Debbie reached out to me to see if I would guest for them over the next 3 months so you will see a card from me once a month for the next 3 months, she is such a sweetie and was working in with all of the workload I have already, so kind..

So without further ado, here is my first creation, using the sweetest lot of penguins, this stamp set is called Penguin Pumpkin Patch

I stamped it out using my Mini Misti, then coloured in with my Copics, now this stamp does not come with a matching die, so I had to use my good old fashion scissors to trim around the image, I see I have lost my touch with this technique so don’t look too closely LOL..

I took a piece of trimmed white card stock and applied Sunshine ink from Lawn Fawn to the centre, giving behind the image a slight glow…

I added my image and at the base of the card I stamped a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps called Bold Banners..

I finished off the card by adding some twine and placed onto a Kraft card base..

I cannot wait to share my next creation with you all, for now please if you have time head on over to their shop and blog to see more amazing creations and product..

Have a great day!





  • CUTEST Fall Penguin card ever! Your coloring is always perfect…what a great project. Thank you for being an awesome Whimsy Stamps SPECIAL guest, we’re so happy to have you and look forward to more :o).ReplyCancel

Hello there

Today I am back sharing a MFT creation using the fun challenge Hits and Highlights..

This month the design team are sharing interactive cards using Slider Elements..

There are so many of these slider techniques and I just know you will love what the design team have created so be sure to swing past the blog for more inspiration…

I chose to use the Harvest Mouse set and the Surf and Turf slider elements…

So I stamped out the images that I wished to create with and coloured in with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock and applied ink to the centre using Lemon Chiffon, once I was happy with the inked area, I took the slider die from the Surf and Turf set and die cut a channel at the base of this card stock..

I added foam tape around the outer edges and also die cut a circle that I attached to the Slider Element, I then adhered my little mouse and he was able to slide along the channel..

I added my other images to one side as if he was in a hurry to collect his goods and went about finishing off my card by stamping a sentiment onto some Kraft card stock and adding this to the top of the card along with some Tiny Check pattern paper and my card was complete..

I hope to see some interactive cards from you all..

Have a great day!



Happy Weekend to you all!

Having a nice weekend I hope, I have been working, but have managed to have a little bit of crafty time this afternoon..

So before heading for bed, I wanted to pop in and share a creation that I created for Pretty Pink Posh..

I created a little scene using Woodland Critters, Fly a Kit and Birdie Friends..

I took my images that I wished to use, placing them all into my Mini Misti, I then stamped in one go, coloured them in with my Copics and die cut them all out using the matching dies…

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock and blended some Merman ink from Lawn Fawn into the centre, once I was happy with the look, I added my images..

I completed this sweet little card by stamping a sentiment from Birdie Friends and a scattering of Clear Sequins..

A really super quick and easy card letting the images shine on their own..

Have a really nice night or day, I will be back again soon with another share, for now, this little body needs to lie down and rest..






Hope you have all had a great day, I haven’t really done much over the last couple of days, was quite sick on Monday and sadly had to come home from work, so really a quiet few days of rest…

So tonight I am here to share the latest challenge for MFT, that being the Color Challenge and we are currently at number 76..

If you are wanting more inspiration or wanting to know how to enter in order to have a chance at winning, then just click HERE for more details..

I kept my image monochromatic so that my colours would shine, so I took one of the dragons from Magical Dragons, stamped it out and coloured with Neutral Grey’s, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took the coloured card stock that matched this weeks colours, Steel Blue, Ripe Raspberry, Tropical Teal and Cornflower, cutting small strips, that I then adhered to some scratch white card stock, die cutting the word Friend, making sure to keep the die cut letters..

I adhered the negative piece along a piece of trimmed white card stock that I die cut using the Inside and Out Stitched Rectangle, I then foam mounted the letters back into the word Friend..

I added my little dragon above the coloured strips, stamping a sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments stamp set and completed the card by scattering Clear Sequins..

I look forward to seeing what you create with these colours..

Have a fabulous night or day!

    I love the stripes and of course the dragon!ReplyCancel


The time is finally here to shop the latest card kit from MFT…you will love it…

I have one last card today sharing the Witch Way is the Candy stamp and die set, that I know you will be happy to get your hands on as well..

I took a piece of white card stock and some masking paper, die cutting a circle out of the masking paper, using the negative part, placing this into the centre of the card stock, I then went about adding Pineapple ink, once I was happy with this, I added the positive section and took away the negative and added some Grape Jelly ink around the outer part of the moon feature I was after..

I then stamped out the images that I wish to use on the card and coloured with Copics, die cutting these out and adding to my moon feature..

I completed the card by adding a Cement Gray grass that I die cut from Spring Scene Builder, stamped the word Boo into the centre and added another sentiment under the the images..

I just know you will be so inspired by the team, so be sure to swing past the MFT Blog today and check out what they have created..

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your shopping..
