Thinking of You! {CTD582}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, my dear friend Bar has challenged us to use the gorgeous combo of hot pink, aqua, Kraft and white! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

I used the SUPER fun Sedona Cut & Emboss Folder form Spellbinders for my card! I began with a panel of white card stock and then ran it through my die-cutting machine using the Sedona Cut & Emboss Folder. I LOVE how it cuts out the little diamonds in addition to creating the gorgeous embossed panel.

I used Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks to sponge on the color. LOVE how it really makes the embossing pop! The sentiment is from Totally Random Sayings Vol. 3 from Essentials by Ellen, and I stamped it with Versamark onto a panel of Kraft card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a strip of white card stock underneath and then attached the sentiment panel to the card. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.



Check out what the rest of the team has created with these super fun colors!

I'm So Thankful For You and Pizza!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the February MFT Hits & Highlights Feature! This month, the MFT Design Team is creating delicious pizza creations using the FABULOUS Pizza My Heart set and Pizza Maker Die-namics! LOVE!


I had SO much fun creating my pizza! The crust was cut from Natural Card Stock and the sauce from Wild Cherry Card Stock. The cheese was cut from Smooth White Card Stock and then lightly sponged with Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I cut the peppers from Field Day Prestige Card Stock, the onions from Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock, the mushrooms from Kraft Card Stock, the pepperoni from Electric Red Prestige Card Stock and finally, the olives from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same Die-namics to cut a strip of patterned paper from the Tiny Check Paper Pack, which I then trimmed down. I stamped "I'm So Thankful for You and PIZZA", from Pizza My Heart, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

Happy Birthday to My Ride or Die!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for the MFT February Birthday Project Challenge! This month, it's all about Birthday cards featuring hearts! SO fun! Valentine's Day is my hubby's Birthday, so this challenge is PERFECT for his card!


I wanted my card to have a tattoo vibe, which is perfect for my hubs. I began with a panel of Red Hot Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used Electric Red Premium Dye Ink to stamped the image from Rose Garden (SUCH a gorgeous set), four times around the card. I then used Red Hot, Wild Cherry and Electric Red Premium Dye Inks and sponged around the edges of the panel. LOVE.

The heart was cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics, and popped it up with foam tape onto the panel. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and the sentiment, "Happy Birthday to My Ride or Die" (which is what we call each other), from Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings Too, was stamped using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Hello! {CTD580}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Wanda has given us a GORGEOUS combo to work with! Purple, green and gray! LOVE!


I absolutely LOVE these colors! I began with a panel of No-Line Coloring Card Stock and stamped the Fresh-Cut Flowers Background using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I then cut the panel down using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics.

I colored the flowers and leaves first with Copic Markers, and then added shading with Polychromos Colored Pencils. I kept the card super simple, letting the flowers shine, and stamped "hello", from Flowers In Bloom, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

You Take The Cake! {CC135}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for a new MFT Color Challenge, and I LOVE the colors this week! We are working with Razzle Berry, Coral Crush, Lemon Chiffon and Limelight! DELISH!


As is my norm, I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I cut the panel again using the new Free With $60, You Take The Cake Die-namics. I stamped the cake from Birthdays Take The Cake (I am obsessed with this set), using Razzle Berry, Coral Crush, Lemon Chiffon and Limelight Premium Dye Inks.

I used the You Take The Cake Die-namics to cut Razzle Berry Card Stock, Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock, Lemon Chiffon Prestige Card Stock and Limelight Prestige Card Stock, and I then inset them into the main panel, one color per word. I LOVE!

You're The Sweetest! {CTD475}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and this week, we have a fab sketch for you! Of course, I HAD to use some new goodies from the February Release!!

I had SO much fun with this sketch! This layout is one I really love and use often, but I do love the addition of the angled panel! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same Die-namics to cut a panel of patterned paper from the new Birthday Brights Paper Pad, which I LOVE. I then cut the panel on an angle.

I cut a different pattern of Birthday Brights Paper Pad using the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and I popped it up with foam tape. I cut the cake from Birthdays Take The Cake Die-namics from No-Line Coloring Card Stock. I stamped the cake using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using the Birthdays Take The Cake set and then colored the cake with Copic Markers and then with Polychromos Colored Pencils. I popped the cake up with foam tape and then added the sentiment panel, cut using the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "You're The Sweetest" from Sweet Shop using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
