Hope you all had a lovely weekend, I sadly worked all weekend, but this coming weekend we have a nice long weekend and I am so looking forward to a bit of down time and possibly sneaking in some crafty time too :)
Speaking of crafty, today is Day 2 of the Release Countdown for MFT, we are certainly edging closer, I hope you are starting to make the list of stamps and dies that you would like to order, it is truly such a fun release and the design team have been sharing some awesome inspiration for you all, if you haven’t had a chance to check out the last few days, just click HERE..
Today, I share a cute set called Beary Big Adventure set..
I took out the images that I wished to use, stamped and coloured with Copics, then die cut these and set aside..
I then took a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front and using the stencil Radiating Rays, I added some rays with Pineapple Ink, making sure to taper off to get a light effect at the end of the blending…
I added my images and all this card need was the sentiments to complete the card, I did however add an exclamation mark at the end of the bottom sentiment as I felt I needed to even up the look with the top sentiment..
I look forward to bringing you day 1 tomorrow, for now have a fantastic day!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and more importantly I hope that you are enjoying seeing all of the sneaks of the June Release for MFT..
There have been loads of inspiration from the design team so be sure to get even further inspired by visiting the BLOG..
Today we are at Countdown Day 3, so it is inching closer to the day that you get to shop..
I have a different look of a card today, something I haven’t done in a long time, which is a bit of layering in a simple way..
I chose to use the Stamp and Die set called You Float my Boat, this is such a cutie set and great for all types of ages for a cute male cards..
I have to admit, I was finding it hard to stamp out the image so that it would line up with the die, my solution, was to die cut it out of some scrap card stock and then layer that on top of my piece I wanted to stamp onto, adding the stamp into that section and with the aid of the Misti, I was able to line up pretty much perfect..
Stamping each section of the little boat with a different colour, Pineapple for the sails, Cherry Crisp for the flag and After Midnight for the boat, die cutting the boat and setting aside..
I then went about the layering process, by trimming down pattern paper from Sweet Sunshine paper pad and some Vellum, adhering some twine around the blue pattern paper and adding these to a trimmed piece of white card stock..
Next, I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto a trimmed piece of white card stock, adding this to the layered paper…
Using more white card stock to die cut some waves using the Ocean Waves die, adding this also to the layered paper, along with the little boat..
I completed my card by die cutting a little anchor out of Black Licorice card stock, adding this to the twine and 3 gold sequins..
I look forward to joining you all again tomorrow, for now, enjoy viewing the amazing creations..
Day 4 of the MFT Release Countdown for June…I hope you all liked the sneak peeks from the design team, we have more installed today for you, so be sure to swing past the BLOG to check them out..
Today, I worked with Birdie Brown’s new set called Party Like a Pirate, super super cute..I paired this up with Ocean View Porthole…and older product, Ocean Waves Dies and the Cloud Stencil..
I worked on the background first, taking a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front, I applied Summer Splash ink over the Cloud stencil and began to produce a cloud background feature..
I then stamped out my images and coloured in with Copics, die cutting these and setting aside..
Taking some Black Licorice card stock, I ran it through the die cutting machine 3 times, die cutting the Ocean View Porthole, adhering each of these together to form dimension..
Whilst, still at the die cutting machine, I took some Berrylicious card stock and die cut some waves using the Ocean Waves, adding this behind the porthole and then onto the cloud background..
Next, I added my images and stamped a sentiment, rounding out with Gold Sequins on the porthole to complete my card..
Love this set and I only wish my nephew was a little fella again because this set would be super perfect..
Okay, I will be back again tomorrow with day 3, enjoy looking at all the inspiration..
It is that time of the month again, when MFT begin the countdown to a new release, time just is flying by, I cannot believe we are now half way through the year again..
So today is Day 5 of the release and there are so many amazing creations today from the Design Team, so be sure to check them out over at the BLOG..
I chose to use the Stitched Star Grid along with the Big Thanks…
Starting out by die cutting several colours of card stock, as I wanted the Stitched Stars Grid to be colourful and cheery…so die cutting Sno Cone, Grapesicle, Lemon Chiffon, Sour Apple, Electric Red and Orange Fizz, setting these aside…
I then took a piece of white card stock, trimmed it slightly smaller then the Steel Grey card base and took the Big Thanks die, ran it through the die cutting machine…once I was happy with that look, I lined up the grid part of the Stitched Stars Grid and chose to make the grid go horizontal as oppose to vertical, running it through the machine twice..
I then went about adding foam tape to each of the little stars that I need and began the process of adding them to the grid..
Once happy with their placement, I then took some clear sequins adding a scattering of these to some of the stars for extra bling..
I added this to the Steel Grey card base and my card was complete..
I hope you all enjoy this countdown, let’s just say, start saving those pennies as it is a fabulous release once again..
Have a fantastic day!
Sorry I have been absent, have been struggling with the second cold for the month and another bug going around here at the moment, so the crafting has had to take a little bit of a back seat…
In saying that, I did create a card for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at MFT in advance…we are sharing creations using sketch 335…

I chose to use images from Ewe are the Best stamp and die set this week..
I stamped out the images I wished to use and coloured in with Copics, die cutting them out and setting aside…I then trimmed down a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller then the card front, along with trimming down some pattern paper from Hearts and Stripes pattern paper and a smaller block of white card stock..
I adhered the pattern paper to the trimmed piece of white card panel, along with the blog of white card stock and added my images..
I then added a sentiment, that I stamped onto a banner of Grout Gray card stock, cut from Blueprints 29..
I completed the card by die cutting some hearts from Insulation Pink card stock, adding one to the sentiment and two above the scene to match the sketch..
I look forward to seeing what you come up with this week..
