Joy From Me to You! {WSC464}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and I LOVE this week's layout!!! I had a blast creating my card!


I started with the background, and cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I taped off the top and bottom of the panel, and then, using various Distress Oxide Inks, creating the inked background. LOVE.

The snowflakes were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Serene Snowflakes Die-namics, and I stamped them with Serene Snowflakes using Versamark. I heat embossed them with silver embossing powder, and they are SO shiny in real life. The sentiment panel was cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "JOY FROM ME TOA YOU", from Bitty Holiday Wishes, using Versamark, and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The snowflakes and sentiment were all popped up with foam tape for lots of dimension!

The Vault Available Now!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

I am SO excited about the November MFT Vault Release! The set I worked with today is one of my ALL TIME favorites...the a la modes Cheers and a la modes Cheers Die-namics! I can certainly get behind a big ol' glass of bubbles!!


I just love her! I cut her from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Cheers Die-namics, and then stamped her with Cheers using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored her with Copic Markers and then popped her up with foam tape onto a panel of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

The main panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same set of dies to cut the patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack and the Silver Sparkle Card Stock. I layered all of the panels together and finished the card off with the sentiment panel, cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips, and then stamped the sentiment using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. A trio of rhinestones adds a touch of bling!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

My friends, it is time! Time for the MFT Vault to open once again!! I was thrilled to see one of my favorite Pure Innocence coming back...the darling Cute-a-tude!! This little gal reminds me of my youngest SO MUCH!!


How sweet is she?! I cut her from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Cute-a-tude Die-namics, and then stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Cute-a-tude. I colored her with Copic Markers and popped her up with foam tape onto a panel of Natural Card Stock cut using the Stitched 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 used the same Die-namics to cut two different patterns from the Party Patterns Paper Pack. LOVE. I popped the panels up with foam tape, adding the circle panel and PI on top. The sentiment strip was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped the sentiment using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

Joy! {WSC463}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and we have SUCH a fun layout this week! I had a blast creating my card!


I began with a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I stamped the panel using the Knitted Sweater Background using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

The wreath was cut twice from Smooth White Card Stock using the Joyful Wreath Die-namics, and I adhered the two wreathes together. I added twine to the wreath and then looped it over the top of the card so it appears to be hanging. I then added a bow of the same twine. The "JOY" was cut five times from Electric Red Prestige Card Stock, layered together and then added to the center of the wreath. I added rhinestones to the wreath in place of berries!

Believe in the Magic of Christmas! {CTD569}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Vickie has challenged us to use the fab combo of purple, lavender and green! Great colors!


These are definitely not traditional Christmas colors, but I think they work! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and using the new Pine Tree Forest Stencil, I sponged on three different Distress Oxide Inks. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, also cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

I cut a panel of Green Room Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then popped it up with foam tape onto the main panel. I cut "Believe" five times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Believe Die-namics, layered them together and then added the die cut word to the circle panel. On a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, I stamped "IN THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS", from Bitty Holiday Wishes, using Versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added the sentiment strip to the circle panel and then finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Thank You For Your Friendship! {WSC462}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and we have a great layout this week!


I LOVE a heart element on a card! I began my card with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, cut with the same Die-namics.

The heart was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics, and I used various Distress Oxide Inks to add the color. I spritzed the panel with water, and once dry, popped it up with foam tape onto the main panel. The sentiment strip was cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "THANK YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP", from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude, using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and then popped it up onto the heart panel using foam tape. A trio of rhinestones completes the card.

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Lynn has challenged us to use the fabulous color combo of orange, brown, moss green and cream! LOVE!


I pulled out the darling Fall Friends from MFT for my card today! I began with the background, and cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the small images from Fall Friends and stamped the background using Orange Zest, Jellybean Green and Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Inks. I cut a strip of patterned paper from the Party Patterns Paper Pack using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then matted the panel with a strip of Jellybean Green Card Stock using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics.

I wrapped the main panel with Hemp Cord and then added a circle of Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock, cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut this sweet girl and the squirrel from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Fall Friends Die-namics, and stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Fall Friends. I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up onto the circle panel with foam tape. The sentiment panel is a strip of Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock and I stamped "HAPPY THANKSGIVING", from Fall Friends, using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and then finished off the card with a bow of Hemp Cord.
