Hello

Another day closer to the full reveal of the MFT March Release…very exciting for you all..

So today I feature a card using the Welcome Baby and Bundle of Baby Clothes…

I first went about trimming down a piece of white card stock and embossed into this card stock using the Stitched Wonky Rectangle Stax, whilst at the die cutting station I took a piece of Watercolor Wash pattern paper and die cut a onsie from the Bundle of Baby Clothes, die cutting one of the small hearts from this die set also out of some Plaid Patterns pattern paper, adhering the heart onto the onsie..

Still at the die cutting station I went about die cutting the letters ABC out of white card stock, using the Stitched Alphabet, adding this to the white card..

Next was to add a sentiment at the bottom of the card stock, so taking a sentiment from the Welcome Baby stamp set, I went about embossing it with Liquid Platinum..

I added the sweet little onsie to the centre and realised that the card needed a little extra to bring it to life, so I took the Party Banners, die cutting this out of Subtle Plaids pattern paper and added this banner across the top of the white card stock..I finished the card by adding this to a Pink Lemonade card..

Be sure to swing past the blog to check out what the rest of the team has created for you today..

I will be back for day 1 of the countdown tomorrow..

Hugs

Hi there

Getting closer to the full reveal of the MFT March Release, hope you are having a lot of fun viewing what gorgeous goodies are being released..

My card for today features the sweetest Pure Innocence girl called Showering you with Love…

Of course my favourite thing to do with these cute stamps is to paper piece, so I stamped her out, coloured in the skin, hat and boots and with the coat and umbrella I paper pieced using pattern paper from Hearts and Stripes and Watercolor Wash..

Die cutting also another piece of Watercolor Wash paper using the Stitched Rectangle Stax, adding this to a white card and die cutting an oval shadow out of Cement Gray card stock adding this to form a puddle in which the girl would stand upon…

Stamping out the sentiment and embossing with White Embossing Powder and realising it looked rather bare, decided to stamp out a duckling and adding this beside her feet, standing in the puddle and my card was complete..

I wanted to keep this very minimal so that the little girl would be the stand out..

Time to head on over to the MFT blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you today..

Hugs

Hi there

Hope you are liking the start of the March Release for MFT..

Today we kick it off with Countdown day 4..

I chose to use Sushi Date and Ninja-Mazing…I took out the stamps that I wanted to use and stamped out, colouring in with Copics and die cutting with the matching dies.

I then took some Summer Splash ink and blended a soft area of blue to the background, once I was happy with the background, I added my images and completed this card by adding a sentiment that I stamped onto a die cut Fishtail Flag Frames..

A pretty simple card today with loads of colouring and impact..

Don’t forget there is loads more inspiration over on the MFT blog for you to view and I will be back tomorrow with another countdown day..

Hugs

Hello again

Cannot believe we are in March already, where does the time go…

So being that it is March it means we are now into another fabulous release for MFT..

 

I start you out today using the Sow Much Cuteness stamp set, those pigs, what can I say, plain adorable…I stamped out my little piggie and butterfly and coloured in with Copics, die cutting them out with their matching dies and setting aside..

I then took the Radiating Rays and the Lemon Drop ink, adding ink to one side of the card stock, once I was happy with the look, I went about die cutting some Black Licorice and Kraft card stock using the Fishtail Flag Frames I die cut both colours, adhering together and stamping a sentiment..

Next I added some twine around the card stock, added my sentiment banner and then my piggie and butterfly..

Finishing off by adding a scattering of Lemon Meringue and Clear Sequins..

Be sure to swing past the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team created today and I will see you all again tomorrow for day 4..

Have a great day!

Hugs

Hello

Did you get to check out the new sketch for MFT this week, we are now up to 322…

 

I loved this sketch this week and really knew I wanted to create a little scene using the You Gnome Me..So I went about stamping out the gnome, mushrooms and snail from the set, coloured in with Copics and set aside once they were die cut…

It was then time to work on the background so I took the Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge Frames, die cutting 3 times out of Kraft card stock and adhered each layer together, I also took the same die and die cut a scratch piece of white card stock and a cloud from the End of the Rainbow…on the white background I used the cloud as a mask and applied Berrylicious ink to the card stock, to create a cloud background..

I took a grass die and some pattern paper from the Calm and Cozy Chevron pattern paper, adding this to the card front and then placing the frame and cloud feature..Next was to add the gnome, mushrooms and snail..

I finished the card by stamping a sentiment onto a sentiment banner and my card for this weeks sketch was complete..

Be sure to swing past HERE to see more from the DT and details on how you can participate this week..

Hello

Back today here on the little old blog to bring you the February Creative Construction with Blueprints for MFT..

This month is all about using Blueprints as interactive dies and I chose to use the Blueprints 29 to create a shaker card..stamping out the Space Explorer image and colouring in with Copics, die cutting him out and setting aside to work on the background, that I took a piece of white card stock, die cutting using the Blueprints 29, adding distress inks to create a galaxy feel, using Picked Raspberry,  Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire, adding the colours until I was happy with the look, flicking water over the top to make it look more like a galaxy and setting aside to dry..I then die cut some Black Licorice card stock for the shaker panel, added some acetate to the back and on the galaxy background I added some clear sequins, closing in the sequins by added the window panel with foam tape and then my little space explorer on top..finishing off the card by taking more Black Licorice card stock, stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Count the Stars stamp set and die cutting some stars from white card stock, using another Blueprints 24 adding this to the card…

Be sure to head on over to the BLOG to see the rest of the teams amazing creations..
