May MFT Release Countdown: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

We are almost there! The incredible May MFT Release will be available in just two days, Tuesday, May 7th at 10PM EDT in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the ADORABLE new Sweet Besties, Sweet Besties Die-namics, and the Skinny Strips Die-namics!


These little girls are the cutest! I cut them, and the three flowers, from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the new Sweet Besties Die-namics. I stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Sweet Besties, and colored them with Copic Markers.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics, and I sponged on Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink using Life Changing Blending Brushes. I spritzed the panel with a white spray, and once dry, popped up the girls using foam tape. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Skinny Strips Die-namics (I am never putting these away. Obsessed), and stamped "You're So Special To Me", from Sweet Besties, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

How sweet is this little PI? I cut her from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Pure Innocence Sweet Summertime Die-namics, and stamped her using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Pure Innocence Sweet Summertime. I colored her with Copic Markers and popped her up with foam tape on top of a panel of Natural Card Stock cut using the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and then popped up over a panel of Electric Red Prestige 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 added a strip of patterned paper from the Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright Paper Pack, cut with the same Die-namics. I added the focal panel and then cut a sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the new Skinny Strips Die-namics, and stamped "YOU'RE PRETTY SWEET" from Sweet Sentiments using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

May MFT Release Countdown: Day Four!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

We are counting down to the fabulous May MFT Release! All of the incredible new products will be released on Tuesday, May 7th at 10AM EDT!

Today I have a card to share with you using the DARLING new Bring Out the Sunshine and Bring Out the Sunshine Die-namics! I just love this sweet little girl!

I began by cutting her, the little bird, and her basket of flowers from No Line Coloring Card Stock using the Bring Out the Sunshine Die-namics and stamped them all with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Bring Out the Sunshine. I colored them with Copic Markers and put them aside.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack. I wrapped Hemp Cord around the panel, and then added a circle cut from Kraft Card Stock using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics. I popped up all three images onto the circle panel using foam tape, and then added the sentiment panel, which I cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

May MFT Release Countdown: Day Five!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time to begin the Countdown to the AWESOME May MFT Release! All of the new goodies will be available on Tuesday, May 7th at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the DARLING new Stacey Yacula Friendly Foxes, Friendly Foxes Die-namics, Greetings & Salutations, and Skinny Strips Die-namics!

I LOVE all of Stacey's sets, and the Friendly Foxes are no exception! I cut this cutie, as well as the two sprigs of grass, from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Friendly Foxes Die-namics, and stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Friendly Foxes. I colored them with Copic Markers and put them to the side. 

I used the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-namics to cut two panels of Smooth White Card Stock.On one, I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink to create the clouds. On the second panel, I sponged on Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink, and then trimmed it down and added it to the cloud panel. I added the fox and grass, popping them all up with foam tape. The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same die-namics to cut a panel of patterned paper from the Party Patterns Paper Pack. I trimmed down the polka dot panel and attached it to the main panel.

I popped up the focal panel using foam tape, lining up the "grass line" with the patterned paper on the main panel. I cut the sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the super fab new Skinny Strips Die-namics, and stamped "CONGRATULATIONS", from the new Greetings & Salutations set, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I added the sentiment strip, popping it up with foam tape, and finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Yay! Yay! Yay! {WSC435}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! I absolutely love this week's sketch!

How fun is this sketch! I began with a panel of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. Then, using Blueprints 31 Die-namics, I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock. I cut the panel in two, towards the top, and then cut it again to create a space between the white panels once on the card. I attached the Smooth White Card Stock panels to the striped panel, popping them up with foam tape.

I cut three circles from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-namics, and arranged them on the card, popping them up with foam tape. I cut three birds using the Birthday Chicks Die-namics from No-Line Coloring Card Stock and stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Birthday Chicks. I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up onto the circle panels with foam tape. I stamped "YAY! YAY! YAY! It's Your Birthday", from Birthday Chicks, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. LOVE.

Check out this week's sketch!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Amy Rysavy is our hostess, and she has challenged us to use pale pink, brown, black and white! Great combo!

For my card this week, I pulled out the super fun Full of Heart Die-namics, and I cut panels of Smooth White Card Stock, Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock and Tickled Pink Prestige Card Stock. I then cut the Smooth White Card Stock panel again using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I added the Smooth White panel cut using the Full of Heart Die-namics onto the larger panel and created my frame. I then inset the cut out hearts into the frame, creating a pattern.

I cut a panel of Tickled Pink Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics, and then added the heart to the main panel using foam tape. I cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped "You Get Me. Thank You.", from More Essential Sentiments, using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and then added a strip of patterned paper underneath from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I then added the sentiment panel to the card, and finished off with a trio of clear enamel dots.
