Treat Bag Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

I am SOOOOOOOO excited about the March MFT Kit...the Treat Bag Kit! Oh.My.WORD. The possibilities are endless!! This fab kit, and all of the products individually, will be available on Tuesday, March 26th at 10AM!!

Both of the treat bags that I am sharing with you today feature the INCREDIBLE new Treat Bag Topper Die-namics! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I cut the tag from Smooth White Card Stock, and then added a rainbow, cut using the Stitched Rainbow Die-namics. I cut the rainbow using the Skittles colors, Wild Cherry, Tangy Orange, Pineapple, Green Room and Grape Jelly. I never noticed, before creating this treat, that there are no blue Skittles! Weird, right?

The clouds were cut using the Stitched Clouds Die-namics from Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock. I popped the rainbow up with foam tape, and then cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped "You're One of A Kind", from Magical Unicorns, using Versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The Skittles are in a Gusseted Treat Bag, and I simply added my decorated topper to create this sweet treat!


For my second treat, I used the Treat Bag Topper Die-namics along with a Flat Treat Bag!


Once again, I used the Treat Bag Topper Die-namics to cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock. I then cut the rainbow and unicorn from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Rainbows & Unicorns Die-namics, and stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Rainbows & Unicorns. I colored them with Copic Markers and then added them to the treat topper panel, popping them up with Foam Tape.

I used the new Free With $60 Gifty Greetings Die-namics to cut the "To" and "From" from Wild Cherry Card Stock, and added them to the treat topper. I filled the Flat Treat Bag with Air Heads Extreme candies, and then added the treat topper!


The Treat Bag Kit is SOOOO fun! Please head over to the MFT Blog to check out what the rest of the team has created with this kit! I can't wait for tomorrow to share more projects. I definitely didn't use candy for my next treats!!

March MFT Birthday Project Challenge - Rainbows!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!


It's time for the March MFT Birthday Project Challenge! This month, it's all about rainbows! I LOVE rainbows!! They are just so happy!!


I began with a panel of Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Once Upon a Rainbow Die-namics to cut Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock, Lemon Chiffon Prestige Card Stock, Sour Apple Card Stock, Blueberry Prestige Card Stock and Lavender Fields Card Stock. I assembled the rainbows and arranged them on the Grout Gray background.


I added the clouds, cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Once Upon a Rainbow Die-namics, and added them to the card. I then trimmed down each side to remove the excess rainbows. I added Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste to the clouds, so they are SUPER sparkly. I cut a strip of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped a sentiment from Rainbows & Unicorns using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I then added some clear, sparkly enamel dots to finish off the card!


Thanks SO much for stopping by! Please head over to the MFT Challenge Blog to check out what the rest of the team has created, and to play along!

If I Could Make It Better, I Would! {CTD535}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, I am hosting! I have chosen a gorgeous (I think!) color combo of red, yellow, soft green and white! LOVE!!


I used the GORGEOUS new Painted Petals and Painted Petals Die-namics from MFT! I cut the leaves and flowers from Smooth White Card Stock using the Painted Petals Die-namics and then stamped them using Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink and Pineapple Premium Dye Ink with Painted Petals. LOVE them! I arranged them on top of a panel of Natural Card Stock cut using the Stiched Circle STAX Die-namics.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Tiny Checks Bright Paper Pack down the side. I wrapped the panel with Hemp Cord and then added the Natural Card Stock circle panel, attaching it with Foam Tape. I cut a strip of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped "If I Could Make It Better, I Would", from Anything-But-Basic Encouragement, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. A bow of Hemp Cord and a trio of enamel dots finish off the card.
