Hi there

Hope you are all having a wonderful day…it has been a rather slow day here today, but I like days like that, it even allowed me to take a bit of a nap and catch up on some much needed rest..

So last night I shared a sneak peek on Instagram of a Pretty Pink Posh card that I created…

I just adore those sweet little birdies so I chose to use the Birdie Friends stamp set, stamping out the images that I wanted, colouring in with copics and die cutting with the matching dies…I then took some Cement Gray and White card stock and die cut the Storybook 5 die, adding this to a white card I stamped out the sentiment from the Birdie Friends in the bottom panel, then adhered the branch and birdies, realising that there needed to be something else to the card, so I took some pattern paper that I have had in my stash for like forever, the ones that you hoard and love, you know the ones..I die cut a cloud from the Rainy Days die set and a heart from the Fox Friends, adding this to the card also and finishing off with a scattering of Sparkling Clear Sequins..

Well that is now my cue to go get some things done around the house and then jump back into the craftroom and get some more crafting done..

Have a great day!

The day has finally arrived the February Card Kit is here…I hope that you all have fun when you receive your kit…

Today I share a shaker style card with you all and keeping the palette very monochromatic..I started out by stamping 2 butterflies layering colours of Limelight and Sour Apple together and die cutting the images out, along with die cutting a larger butterfly out of vellum…I adhered the 2 largest butterflies together and then proceeded to work on the background piece, I took some Smooth White card stock from the kit and applied the same colours of ink, Limelight and Sour Apple until I was happy with the look, set this aside, die cut into another piece of trimmed Smooth White card stock using the Peek-Boo Circle Windows and adhered some acetate on the back portion to create the window of the shaker, I then added foam tape around the circle and added Clear Sequins then covered this piece with my blended piece of card stock, adding this to a card front and finishing off the card by adding the butterflies and a stamped sentiment strip..

Be sure to head on over to the blog to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations..to purchase the kit just head HERE..

Hi there

Today we share more creations from the February Card Kit from MFT..

I hope you have enjoyed what you have viewed from the DT so far, even if mine really are not up to the norm from me..

Today’s card I went with a little collage effect, stamping out my butterflies with Grapesicle, Eggplant, Berrylicious and Tropical Teal, die cutting my butterflies out and setting aside, still with the die cutting machine I took Tag Builder Blueprints 5 and die cut a banner and tag from this out of Smooth White card stock, I trimmed down the tag so it just resembled a rectangle and on the tag I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set within the kit itself…I also took some Watercolor Wash pattern paper, die cutting 2 circles that I placed under the rectangle, then I adhered my butterflies, finishing off the card by adding a strip of pattern paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper and then my tag, looking at the card I realised I needed just a little bit more to the card, so I added a scattering of sequins to complete..

Time to head on over to the Blog to see what else is in store for today..

I will be back with the last day tomorrow

So it seems my blog wants to be naughty and not send out my posts again, super frustrating, not to mention very naughty as I now cannot find the post, so I am having to rewrite it…so after realising it had not gone out, it is really late and I apologise..

So without further ado, here is the card for the first day of the card kit sharing…

This kit is just beautiful, I adore butterflies and I was super excited to play this month, but of course my mojo decided it was going on hiatus, so they really are not the best cards this month LOL but I hope you find something of value in them..

I stamped out a butterfly, layering the different components with Peach Bellini and Cement Gray, I was going with a soft feel to this card, perhaps and wedding or engagement card…I then took some vellum from the kit and used the die Stitched Fancy Flourish, sticking with the die cutting I die cut Smooth White card stock from the kit with the Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges 2 and adhered to a card, I added the flourish and butterfly and below this I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set contained in the kit, adding a line of pearls under the scallops to give it an extra touch, of course the Inks, Pearls and Dies that were used are not contained within the kit, but of course it shows you how you can create with accents from the MFT store

Be sure to swing past the blog and check out the rest of the teams amazing creations..

Once again, apologies for my blog post disappearing and it being rather late going up..

Fingers crossed for tomorrow :)

Today marks the February Release Replay for MFT

I chose to work with the little Pure Innocence stamp set, one in which I did not get to use within the Countdown, such a sweet little girl..

I kept the card pretty simple, but one I hope provides some inspiration to you all…

I trimmed down a piece of white card stock and applied Summer Splash and Limelight inks to create a grass and sky effect…I then die cut the word Friend from Words for Friends into the bottom part of the card stock, setting aside to stamp out the little girl, colour with Copics and paper piece her dress using the Tiny Check Brights pattern paper adding some shading to the pattern paper dress and adhering to the little girl, then die cutting her adding her to the grass area on the card and using one of the sentiments from the stamp set, I stamped the sentiment on the other side of the girl, foam mounting this to a white card, adding the extra pieces from the R and D back into the word Friend and completed my card by adding some sequins..

More from the DT over on the blog what they created for today’s Release Replay..








  • Adorable! Love her paper pieced dress!ReplyCancel

Hi There

Tonight I wanted to pop in and share my latest card for this weeks sketch..we are currently up to number 319, and there is still time to play along..


I chose to work with several dies and stamps from MFT


I took some Cement Gray card stock and inking up the Lined Up Dots Background with white pigment ink, stamping the front of the Cement Gray card…I then took some Watercolor Wash pattern paper and die cut with Inside & Outside Diagonal Stitched Rectangle, adding this to the card front.. I then took Lemon Drop card stock and die cut the Sunny Skies die trimming part of the sun off, adding this to the pattern paper, next I moved onto adding a fence line and so I went about die cutting Kraft card stock out of Farm Fence die, adding a partial fence line, behind the fence I added a tree that I stamped and coloured in with Copics from the Farm Friends along with a pig, that was placed on the other side of the fence..to complete the card and trying to replicate the sketch I stamped a sentiment from the Essential Sentiments and die cut around it with the Stitched Sentiments Strips..

I hope you find some time to enter this weeks sketch, for loads more inspiration from the DT and also participating customers just head over HERE..

Have a great rest of the day!
