Hope you are all having a nice day!

Over at MFT today it is that time of the month again to share projects with you all and to give you inspiration in using Blueprints..

I chose to work with Blueprints 24 and this months challenge, was to take a sketch from one of the Blueprints and keep it pretty much to the same design but to make it our own..

I chose to use this sketch below and just adjusted it slightly to suit the design I was after..

Using the Adorable Elephants, I coloured in one of the Elephants and one of the Balloons from this stamp set, colouring with Copics and die cutting with the matching dies, setting these aside to work on the rest of the card..

I took one of the dies from the Blueprints 24, die cut from some White Card stock and applied Pink Lemonade, Lemon Chiffon and Limeade to the card stock, blending to give a soft look…

I then die cut the circle into this card stock and adhered to another piece of White Card Stock slightly smaller then the card front…

I die cut more White Card Stock using the sentiment banner and tab that was in the Blueprints set, adding the tab as an extra feature to the side of the blended panel and on the sentiment strip I inked up a stamp with Versamark in and embossed with Liquid Platinum..

Adding my little Elephant, sentiment strip and finishing off by die cutting matching card stock to the inks, Pink Lemonade, Lemon Chiffon and Limeade, adding stars and circle die cuts to the card to complete..

Hop on over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team has created today..

I am now off to the craft room before I head to work, have a great day!

Back again today with another fun post for you..

Being Wednesday that means it is time for a new sketch challenge over at MFT…you can read more about the sketch and how to enter the challenge HERE..

This sketch really stretched me this time and it was fun to stretch my skills..

I chose to colour in images from the Furever Friends and Birthday Bears, die cutting them out with their matching dies and setting aside..

I then worked on the background, by stamping a piece of white card stock with the Whimsical Waves Background and embossed with white embossing powder, adding this to a white card base..

Next, I trimmed another piece of white card stock even smaller then the last piece and I added strips of pattern paper from the Dots & Stripes Confection paper pad…Adding my little images at the base and stamping out some sentiments from the Birthday Bears stamp set..

I hope you will have time this week to enter this weeks challenge, I look forward to seeing all the entries…

Enjoy the rest of your day, it is night time here now and I am either heading for bed or maybe sneaking in some more craft time..










I sure hope you have popped over to MFT and ordered your kit for the month to play with..


I have one last card for you today using this kit..

I chose to colour up one of the dogs from the You Make My Tail Wag, die cutting him out and then proceeded to work on the rest of the card..

I took some Black Licorice card stock, trimmed it slightly smaller then the card front and stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder the Chevron Background stamp…die cutting the circle into the card stock for the maze itself to sit…

Whilst die cutting I die cut a Electric Red piece of card stock to form the ring to sit around the plastic shaker pouch..

I added the shaker pouch and maze with the ball and a dog bone to the centre and sealed up this section at the back, adding the red ring around the outside and then added my dog to the other side of the card..

Next was to add a stamped sentiment onto a strip of Smooth White card stock and trimming small strips of Electric Red card stock, adding these to both bottom and top of the card to complete the card..

I hope you will head over to the MFT blog to check out the rest of the teams creations..have fun with this kit!

Hi there

Hope you are all having a great day and hope you are all enjoying the shares that the MFT design team are sharing with this month’s card kit called A-maze-zing…

Today, I kept my card pretty simple again, stamping out the maze onto some Cement Gray card stock and embossing with white embossing powder, die cutting it out and setting aside..

I then die cut a Star out of some pattern paper from the Dots & Stripes Confection, adding the Maze feature to the centre of this..

I then worked on the background, trimming a piece of white card stock and stamping the Lined Up Dots Background, embossing with white embossing powder, trimming off the base of this for a more decorative feature using the Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges, adding this to a white card base, then under this panel I trimmed some more Dots & Stripes Confection, pattern paper, adding a stamped sentiment to the base…

Next, was to add my star feature, finishing off the card, by stamping out the words start and finish to add to the maze and die cutting a Coral Crush heart to the centre..

Looking forward in sharing my last project with you all tomorrow…for now swing past the MFT blog to see the rest of the teams amazing creations..

Hello there

Hope that you all enjoyed your Easter festivities, hard to believe that Easter has come and gone again for another year..

We have had a lovely few days off from work and I have even had some time to just craft and relax, which is always nice..

Darryl and I are about to hit the garden and clean up all those weeds and do some planting, so I am scheduling this post for today…

Today, is the start of the new card kit over at MFT and we start off with day 1 of sharing the interactive kit called A-maze-ing…such a fun kit to work with and I know that you guys are going to want to play with it too..

I wanted to make my card for today a nice and cheerful one, die cutting colourful hearts from the heart die within the kit, die cutting Razzle Berry, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple and Sno Cone card stocks, setting these aside..

I then went about trimming down a piece of Smooth White card stock slightly smaller then the card front and took the maze stamp, inking up with Versamark and stamping and embossing 2 times onto the card…sticking with stamping and embossing, I also stamped this image onto a piece of Cement Gray card stock and die cut that piece out with the matching die..

I added the stamp that showed the way in the maze onto the white embossed mazes on the white card and adhered the Cement Gray version with foam tape into the middle of both of these…

I stamped a sentiment under the mazes and added my little row of hearts, including one to the centre of the Cement Gray maze and my card was complete..

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

I will be back tomorrow with more for you to view..

Hi there

Hope you all enjoyed your day, we had a lovely day here, with Mum coming for lunch, loads of food to eat, just an all round good day..

So tonight, I am sitting here winding down from the days events and wanted to pop in and share a card that I created for Pretty Pink Posh..

Of course that being Easter weekend, I chose to create an Easter card with the Easter Friends stamp and die set, pairing it with the Scallop Frames and Stitched Borders 4..


Of course with any of my card making I stamp out the images I wish to use and colour in with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took some white card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine 4 times die cutting the Scallop Frames die, adhering the out edge of the frames together to form dimension, I then adhered this to the white card base and die cut the Scallop Frames one last time this time die cutting some Watercolor Wash pattern paper, adding the inner part of this to the card base..

I then moved on to adding strips of more pattern paper, die cutting Stitched Border, to create scalloped hills, adding this across the card and trimming a piece of pink Tiny Check pattern paper under the green section..

I added my stamped images, stamped out a sentiment and finished off by adding a scattering of sequins..

Well I think I may just hit the craft room for a little more creating..enjoy the rest of your day..
