Hi there

Hope you all had a great week, I have to say I am pleased that it is now the start of the weekend and what better way to start it by sharing my first Sneak Peeks of the Christmas Collection from Clearly Besotted..

I am so honoured and still pinching myself that I am once again here sharing creations using the next latest release for you all and what a release this will be so stay tuned and don’t forget to swing past the blog to see all the amazing creations from the team..

This first card that I share with you I created using two new sets called Christmas Line Up and Sentimental Christmas..

Stamping out the polar bears from the Christmas Line Up onto some Bristol Smooth White card stock, and colouring with my Polychromos..

I then stamped onto some white card stock the Birch Tree Background and older set from Clearly Besotted and coloured this also with Polychromos..

Once I was happy with all the blending and the depth of colour I was after, I then added my little images over the birch trees and finished off stamping a sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas using Lawn Fawn, Lobster ink..

Adding this to a Sno Cone card stock…

I will be back again tomorrow to share even more with you..

Have a fantastic crafty day!

Back again with yet another post for today this time it is Sketch Challenge time..

I look forward to seeing what you create this week and for more inspiration and seeing how you can enter for a chance to win head over HERE!

I chose to pull out the sweet Meant to Bee stamp and die set, stamping out the images and colouring with Copics..

I then took a piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns and a piece of Black Licorice, trimming both to match the sketch..

I then added my little images to the card and stamped a love heart that was from the same set and embossing with clear embossing powder..

Completing this card by stamping a sentiment from the Bitty Birthday Wishes and die cutting using the Skinny Strips, adding this to the top of the card..

Have a fabulous crafty day!




I hope you have all enjoyed viewing the latest products from the Vault..

So many great products to purchase and if by chance you never had the opportunity to purchase these in the past, now is a wonderful time to do so..

Don’t forget to pop on over to the blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the DT..

For today’s card I created using the Sunflower Sweetheart and I have to say I was so excited when MFT re released this sweetie, as I never had the opportunity to create with her when I purchased her last and so I just adored colouring her up with my Copics..

I pulled the card together by adding a sky using some blending over the Mini Cloud Stencil with Blue Breeze ink..

I then stamped a sentiment onto some Tickled Pink card stock and embossed with white embossing powder, adding this under the sky line..

I then took a strip of pattern paper from the Party Patterns, adding this under the sentiment strip…

Finishing off by adding my little images that I coloured from the set and my card was complete..

Have fun shopping!



Hi there

Back again with the MFT Vault and there is so many goodies to choose from again this month..

I am sharing the first day of the Vault and using the Game Controller and Level Up items..

Die cutting all the pieces for the Game Controller out of Black Licorice, Cement Gray, Sour Apple, After Midnight, Electric Red and Orange Zest Card Stocks..

Once the pieces were all added I added some glossy accents to the control pieces for extra shine..

I then took a sentiment from the Level Up stamp set and embossed it onto some Black Licorice card stock..

Adding both the Game Controller and Sentiment to a Kraft card base that I had die cut a panel using the All the Stars Cover up..

Finishing off with some black string to look like the cord attachment to the game controller..

Be sure to head to the blog to see more amazing Vault items and DT projects..

Back tomorrow with Day 2 of the Vault inspiration..

Hi there

Gosh feels like ages since I last spoke to you all here and for that matter had a chance to craft, been a busy couple of weeks here, just dealing with some medical stuff, work and general life, but I have to say it was fun to sit and craft and I am hoping to be able to do even more tomorrow before heading back to work..

Speaking of crafting how about joining in the fun and creating a Birthday Project, the MFT team are creating and sharing cards based around our pets, because they are apart of our family, so what better way then creating a birthday card for another pet loving person that is your life..

To check out all the details on how you can enter and for more inspiration head on over HERE!

I pulled out a set that I have never used and it was super fun to colour these little doggies using my Polychromos..

The set that I used was called Lucky Dog, a fun set from the Birdie Brown collection..

I took some white card stock that I blended Cement Gray over the English Brick Stencil, then die cut the panel using the Blueprints 29..

Adding this to a white card base, using foam tape to add dimension..

Lastly, I added my images, stamping some little footprints and adding a sentiment that I embossed onto some Electric Red card stock..

I cannot wait to see what you all create..

Have a fabulous day!

I pulled out an old set from Birdie Brown collection called Adorable Elephants and chose to colour in one of the elephants and balloon, adding white gel pen to the balloon..

I then grabbed a piece of Watercolor Wash pattern paper and used the Inside and Out Stitched Circle Stax, die cutting into one side of the paper, adding this to a white card base then adding some Cement Gray strips either sides of the paper..

I then added my little elephant and balloon and completed this card by stamping a sentiment from the Hello, Little One onto white card stock, die cutting around the stamped sentiment with Skinny Strips, adding this under the little elephant..
