The Birthday Project Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for the September Birthday Project Challenge, and this month, it's all about pets! Whether it be a birthday card FOR your pet, or birthday cards that feature pets, we are paying homage to our faithful friends!


I am, admittedly, a crazy cat lady...I have five! So, of course, I had to feature kitties on my card! This feline trio, and the flowers and butterfly, were all cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Meow Mix Die-namics , and I stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Meow Mix. The party hats were cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Beary Special Birthday Die-namics, and stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Beary Special Birthday. I colored them all with Copic Markers.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil to create the sky. The grass panel was cut from Green Room Prestige Card Stock first using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then using the Grassy Fields Die-namics. I stamped "Sending You a Smile on Your Birthday" using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and then added all of the images, popping them up with foam tape.

Miss You! {CTD561}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week, Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use the gorgeous combo of purple, light green, teal and ivory! SO pretty!

I had so much fun creating these butterflies! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and sponged on Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Inks. I blended them together and then cut out the butterflies using the Flutter of Butterflies- Lace Die-namics. LOVE! Their bodies were cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the same Die-namics.

The main panel is Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I lightly sponged on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water, patted it down with paper towels, and once dry, stamped "Miss You", from Brushstroke Expressions, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I then added the butterflies, popping them up with foam tape, and then added a sprinkling of sequins to finish off the card.

Starry Night Card Kit Available Now!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

The time has arrived! The FABULOUS new Starry Night Card Kit is available right now in the MFT Boutique! I have had SO much fun working with this kit!


For my card today, I've paired the new Starry Night Sentiments, Starry Night Sentiments Die-namics, Starry Night - Vertical Die-namics and Night Sky Color Burst Trio with the previously released Frosty Friends! I began with the background and cut a panel of watercolor card stock using the A2 Stitched STAX 2 Die-namics. I used Blueberry Color Burst to create the background...I cannot get enough of these Color Bursts! They are SO fun to work with! Once the panel was dry, I cut it again using the new Starry Night - Vertical Die-namics to add the stars to the panel.

I cut the "snow" from Smooth White Card Stock first using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. The trees were cut from Field Day, Green Room and Limelight Prestige Card Stock using the Mountain High Die-namics, and I added them along the higher snow drift. The snowman was cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Frosty Friends Die-namics, and I stamped him using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored him with Copic Markers and popped him up onto the "snow" with foam tape.

The sentiment, "You Are So Bright, You", from Starry Night Sentiments, was stamped with Versamark Ink onto a panel of Natural Card Stock, and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut the "Twinkle" from Translucent Vellum using the Starry Night Sentiments Die-namics, and stamped "Twinkle" from Starry Night Sentiments using Versamark and then heat embossed that as well using white embossing powder. I popped both panels up with foam tape to complete the card.

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

We are SO close to the release of the INCREDIBLE new Starry Night Card Kit! I LOVE this kit SO much, and you can get yours when it is released tomorrow, September 17th at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!


I've paired the new Starry Night Sentiments and Starry Night - Vertical Die-namics with the previously released Friendship Rocks and Friendship Rocks Die-namics for my card today! I began with the background and cut a panel of Watercolor Paper using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the FABULOUS Night Sky Color Burst Trio to create the background, and I am obsessed with them! They are SO fun to work with!

Once the background was dry, I stamped "You're a" and "Star" from Starry Night Sentiments using Versamark and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I cut this signing sweetie, and her little stand, from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Friendship Rocks Die-namics, and then stamped them both using Friendship Rocks with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and added them to the card using foam tape. I cut Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Starry Night- Vertical Die-namics, and used only the little stars, scattering them around this little cutie.

Starry Night Card Kit!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!!

I am SO very excited about the AMAZING new Card Kit from MFT...the Starry Night Card Kit! AH! Creating starry, galaxy skies are pretty much my favorite thing to do! I LOVE this kit, which will be released on Tuesday, September 17th at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!


The new Night Sky Color Burst Trio, included in the Starry Night Card Kit, are SO fun to create with! I began with a panel of Watercolor Paper and then used the new Night Sky Color Burst Trio to create the sky. LOVE! Once the panel was dry, I cut it using the new Starry Night - Vertical Die-namics, and popped it up with foam tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock. 

The sentiment was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Starry Night Sentiments Die-namics, and I stamped "Bright" using Black Licorice Extreme Hybrid Ink. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape onto the card, and then stamped "shine" using the same ink. I matted the entire panel with a piece of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, which I love paired with a galaxy sky. I then finished off the card with a trio of sparkly enamel dots.
