Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you all, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year…

The new year begins and so does the January Release Countdown for MFT, so be sure to head to the blog to see all the amazing creations from the team..

I chose to work with one of the latest releases from Birdie Brown called, Let’s Stick Together, the cutest cacti ever..

I coloured my images in with Copics and Polychromos and set it aside once die cut..

I then took some Kraft card stock and die cut a panel using the A2 Stitched Rectangles, on the inner section I took the Love is in the Air Stencil and applied Sweet Tooth Pigment ink adding a fluttering of hearts..

With the outer section of the card stock, I added foam tape and added to another piece of kraft card stock, to which I then added to a white card..

I adhered the inner section back into the panel and added sentiment to the base and completed the card by adding my image and a few enamel hearts..

I look forward being back here tomorrow with Day 4.

Have a fantastic day!

    I always love seeing Kraft paper used in cards. This one really works well. Thanks, Joy!ReplyCancel

  • Aww, what a sweet card! I love the simpleness of it, and the Kraft cardstock is great in that it really helps the cacti image pop out. Love the white hearts in the background, too!ReplyCancel

Hi there!

Sweltering weather here today so not a lot has been done..

However, I did manage to create and have fun with this months Birthday Project and I sure hope you all will join me in the fun and create for a chance to win, be sure to head over HERE to see inspiration to get you started..

I never got a chance to play with the You Have My Heart stamp set that was released in an earlier Vault Release, so I took the opportunity to colour up one of those images..

I added this to a window area that I die cut into a white panel card front, using the Square Peek-a-Boo Window, adding pattern paper from the Party Patterns to the back..

I then took some sentiments from the Bitty Birthday Wishes and stamped and embossed onto Wild Wisteria card stock, die cutting each of these with Skinny Strips, adding these under the window..

I completed this CAS card by die cutting some hearts from the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 and adding some either side of the sentiments..

At this time of the year we still have a lot of birthdays and we all know we need to throw a card together really quickly, so I hope you will find some inspiration in this card..

Enjoy your day, stay cool, warm and most of all be safe with fires, snow and rains where ever you are in the world..



Hi there

Back as promised with the latest Sketch Challenge from MFT, this time we are sitting at number 468, I sure do hope you will find time in your busy December schedule to play along, be sure to head over HERE to see more inspiration and details on how you can enter for a chance to win..

I chose to create my last Christmas card for the season and colouring a cute little dog from the Deck the Howls with Polychromos..

I then took a white panel and using some Sour Apple Ink, I applied through the Basic Shapes Circle Stencil up one side of the panel, making sure to overlap each circle..

I stamped a sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock that I embossed with white embossing powder and using the Skinny Strips die, die cutting the sentiment, adding this towards the bottom of the inked panel..

I finished this card by adding my little dog and a scattering of sequins..

Have fun creating..



Hello again

Back to share a second card using some great products being released from the Vault this month, this time working with, Strike Up the Band..

I never got to play with this set, so I was delighted to see that MFT have brought it out of the vault this month, I mean those cute mice are so adorable..

I stamped mine out and coloured with Polychromos, die cutting and setting aside..

Whilst at the die cutting station, I took Black Licorice card stock and the Our Town Die, die cutting into the card stock..

I then trimmed a piece of After Midnight card stock and adding some stenciling using the Radiating Rays stencil, along with some Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, adding some Black Licorice at the top..

I added this to a white card panel and my Our Town die along with my little mice..

Completing this card by adding a sentiment at the base along with some glitter gel pen dots over the stenciled area..

Be sure to head to the blog and see all the other wonderful creations by the DT..

I will be back a bit later with the latest sketch challenge, so be sure to head back..

Have a great day!



Hello everyone!

I am delighted to be back here again to share yet another card and yes, we have another Vault Release at MFT, you will want to get your hands on these products..

I chose with this card to create using the, Adventure is Calling, this girl is way to cute..

I stamped her out and coloured her in with Polychromos, still working on my technique with these amazing pencils..

To pull the card together, I took some Grout Gray card stock and die cut the City Block adding this to a white panel that I die cut using the Stitched Cloud Edges, adding both of these to another piece of white card stock with foam tape..

I added a strip of pattern paper from the Black and White Stripes under the City Block and added my little girl..

I completed the card by stamping a sentiment and adding this to a Steel Grey card base..

I hope you will have some time in your busy lead up to Christmas schedule to pop on over to the blog to see all the amazing creations from the DT..

I chose to use the Zippy Zebras and pair it with Heap of Hellos as well as A2 Stitched Circle Stax..

I took the zebra and stamped out then coloured with Polychromos, die cut out and set aside..

I then took a white panel and using Steel Grey ink, I applied to a small section on the English Brick Wall Stencil..

I added a stamped sentiment from the Heap of Hellos to some Ripe Raspberry card stock that I embossed with white embossing powder and then die cut using the A2 Stitched Cricle Stax adding this to the top left hand corner..

I added my little zebra and some shadows using more Polychromos and completed this card by stamping another sentiment under this from the Zippy Zebras..

Enjoy shopping..
