Hi there

Hope you all have a fabulous day today…my day was a good day, spent with Mum cleaning out a few things and organising, so that is always a good thing..

After a long day I am surprised that I have managed to make it into the craft room to craft, but of course this little corner of my house always makes me happy..

So before I get started on crafting, I figure it was time to sit here and schedule my post for the new sketch challenge at MFT…to find out how you can enter into this weeks challenge and have a chance at winning a prize or to even be inspired by the design team, then click HERE..

We are up to number 337 this week and I have to say it kinda made me put my thinking cap on :)

I chose to use Space Explorer, I just adore this sweet little set..

I stamped out my image of the little space boy and coloured him in with Copics, I die cut him and set him aside..

Moving onto the rest of the card and sketch, I took some white card stock, along with Lemon Drop ink and applied ink over a section of the card stock, die cutting a starry background using Starry Circle..

Sticking with the die cutting, I took some After Midnight card stock and Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax and lining 2 of them up together so that it just cut a border, I die cut the card stock..

Next, I took a piece of Sour Apple card stock, trimmed a strip and using stamps from the Out of this World stamp set, I stamped out the images along the strip with Sour Apple ink, adding this to the centre of a trimmed white card base..Adding my Starry Circle and Fishtail Banner also..

The sentiment was the next to be added onto the circle feature, stamping a sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock from the Out of this World stamp set, embossing with white embossing powder…

Lastly, I added my little space boy and die cut an Electric Red heart from the Tag Builder Blueprints 6..

I look forward to seeing all your projects this week..

Have a fun crafty day!

Hi Again

Back with my second post for today, so if you are looking for the MFT Release Replay be sure to scroll under this post…

I am sharing news that I will be staying on with the new Pretty Pink Posh Design Team, super excited and honoured to be apart of this amazing team…

In honour of the the announcement, Paulina is giving away a wonderful prize over on the BLOG…$100 giveaway, so be sure to head there for all the details on how to enter for your chance to win!!!!

For today’s special post, I decided to whip up a card quickly, using the Woodland Critters, Bold Blooms, Thoughtful Greetings and Scallop Circle Tags..

For this card, I wanted a really soft and pretty look, opting to emboss the images with white embossing powder and colouring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers…once I was happy with the water coloured look, I die cut these out..

I took a piece of white card stock and die cut one of the Scallop Circle Tags, then added some soft blue ink to the background of the tag, placing my images onto the tag also and then onto a trimmed white card stock slightly smaller then the card front..

I finished off the card, by stamping a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set and emboss with silver embossing powder..

I loved how this card turned out and I really hope that you will head to the design team’s blogs to leave them some love too…

Have a great rest of the day!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, it was a nice long weekend here and having a few days off work was just what was ordered..

I managed to get some much needed crafting done and look forward in sharing it all with you..

Today’s crafty post is sharing the June Release Replay for MFT..

I see that some of you have started to receive you June products and I sure hope you are having loads of fun creating..

The design team have more inspiration for you using the June Release and here is my card for today..

I chose to use Ocean Fun along with older sets, Exquisite Ocean and Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames..

I first took a piece of white card stock that was trimmed slightly smaller then the card front and taking Spearmint and Berrylicious inks, I applied over the whole piece of card stock, blending until I was happy with the end result…I then flicked some water over the top to have the ink wick..

I ran this piece through the die cutting machine, die cutting with the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames, adding this to a card base, making sure to foam mount the frame itself, so that the card had dimension..

I then took the stamps from Ocean fun and stamping out the images with Tropical Teal, Limelight and Pineapple inks, die cutting each of these and adding them to the inner part of the frame…I added some stamped images into the background blended area also, so it looked as though they were in the distance..

I stamped a sentiment onto white card stock and added this also to the inner part of the frame work..

Feeling as though the whole design was a bit bland, I went and took some Vellum, stamping some coral from the Exquisite Ocean, embossing with white embossing and adding this to the base of the frame..

Completing the card by adding scattering of sequins and a twine bow..

I hope you will have fun checking out all the design teams projects, they are so super talented..

I will be back later with another post for you all..









Hi there

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!!

Nice day here at the cottage and some much needed down time, I had a relaxing morning and then I hit the craft room and played with some much needed Pretty Pink Posh goodies..hoping to do a lot more this weekend..

I wanted to pop in and share this card I created this morning before I leave for work..

I took stamps from the Woodland Critters and Bee Friends, placed them all into my Misti and stamped them all out in one go..

I coloured all the images in with Copics and with one pass through the die cutting machine I die cut all the images and set them aside..

Moving onto the background panel, I took white card stock and die cut the Window Frames, adding Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink, spritzing the panel with water and adding this to a trimmed piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front..

I added my sweet little images and then I went into a slight hyperventilation as I had to trim one of my sentiment stamps apart to achieve the look I was after…as you can tell I really really don’t like to do that LOL…

I do hope you find some inspiration in today’s card..

Have a great rest of the day!






Hello Again

Have you all had fun doing a little bit of shopping today at the MFT store the new release is just so adorable with so many fun stamps and dies etc..

Tonight, I am back with more inspiration for you all, but this time a new Sketch Challenge..

We are now up to Sketch 336..To find out more about the challenge and how you can enter to win, just click HERE..

I am so in love with the Cloud Stencil, that I had to use it on this card, die cutting a heart from white card stock and apply Pink Lemonade to create a soft background..

I then took the Hog Heaven stamp set and stamped out a sweet little pig, that I coloured in with Copics and die cut with the matching die..

I then moved onto using some Vellum that I stamped the Roses all Over Background stamp and embossed with white embossing powder, I then die cut a Fishtail Flags Layers adding this to a trimmed white card..

Adding my little pig and then taking a sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped onto Black Licorice card stock and embossed with White Embossing Powder, adding this banner to the base of the heart..

I finished off the card by die cutting some hearts from the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 out of some Pink Lemonade card stock, adding these to one side of the large heart and my card was complete..

I look forward to seeing what you create using this weeks Sketch..

Adding here, that Inlinkz is still tweaking it’s maintenance, so I will update the list of supplies tomorrow for you all… Edited to say that my links are now at the base of this post :)

The day is finally here where you can shop up a storm at the MFT store, the new products are now live and I hope many products end up in your craft rooms..

The design team are sharing more creations today so be sure to leave some love at their blogs and you can seem even more on the Blog..

Today I am sharing For Owl You Do..this cute owl set is adorable and the sentiments in the set are even better…

I chose to pair this stamp set up with some older product from the Beary Special Birthday and Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames…

I took out the owl and the other images that I wished to colour up with Copics, once happy with the look, I die cut them all out and set aside..

I trimmed a piece of white card stock slightly smaller then the card front and went about applying Periwinkle and Pink Lemonade to the card stock, more towards the top…

Back to die cutting, I took more white card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine 3 times, die cutting using the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames, adhering each of the layers together and then adhering to the coloured card stock..

I added a sentiment that I embossed with Silver Embossing powder at the bottom of the frame and added my images, finishing off the card by adding a scattering of Friendship Mix sequins, which I think were a limited addition…

Thanks as always for stopping by this release and sharing some love here on my blog..you guys really are just the best..

Have fun shopping!!
