July MFT Birthday Project Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for the July MFT Birthday Project Challenge! This month, it's all about the flowers! Stamped flowers, die-cut flowers, flower power!


I had so much fun creating this rainbow floral card! I began 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 cut from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack. I stamped "a little Birthday Wish for a Great Friend" from Birthday Greetings using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

The flowers and leaves were cut using the Stitched Flowers and Stitched Blooms Die-namics from Wild Cherry Card Stock, Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock, Pineapple Prestige Card Stock, Green Room Prestige Card Stock, Blu Raspberry Card Stock, Grape Jelly Card Stock and Smooth White Card Stock. I arranged the flowers and leaves all along the strip of patterned paper, and I LOVE how it came out!

Hello, Sunshine! {WSC446}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! This week, we are up to WSC446, and I have a loose interpretation on my card today!

I created a beach scene based on this week's sketch, with the sky and the sea/sand as the two horizontal panels, and the sun and the empty sky as the two vertical panels. I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink and the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil to create the sky. The "sea" is a panel of Blu Raspberry Card Stock, and the sand is a panel of Kraft Card Stock, first cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then again using the Snow Drifts Die-namics.

The sun was cut from Pineapple Prestige Card Stock using the Sunny Skies Die-namics, and I added that to the card and trimmed the excess. I stamped "Hello, Sunshine" from Beach Cutie, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. This little cutie was cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Beach Cutie Die-namics, and stamped her with Beach Cutie using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored her with Copic Markers and then popped her up on the "sand" using foam tape.

You're Never Too Old For Cake! {CTD552}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Barbara challenged us to use the gorgeous combination of pink, gray, silver and white! LOVE!


I began with the Birthday Cake Die-namics and created the cake using Cotton Candy Card Stock, Smooth White Card Stock, Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock and Silver Sparkle Card Stock. LOVE. I arranged the cake panels onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. 

I popped the main panel up onto a panel of patterned paper from the Party Patterns Paper Pack. The sentiment, "You're Never Too Old For Cake", from Bitty Birthday Wishes, was stamped using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock which was cut using the Skinny Strips Die-namics. I added the sentiment panel to the card and then finished off with a trio of enamel dots.

Hello. I've Missed You! {CTD551}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use the gorgeous combo of pink, gold, black and white! LOVE!


I am obsessed with blending ALL the backgrounds lately! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Moroccan Mosaic Stencil and Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink to create the background, adding more ink around the edges.

I cut "hello" using the Hello Die-namics from gold card stock, and then three times from Smooth White Card Stock, and then layered them together. I added the die-cut word to the card, and then cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped "I'VE MISSED YOU", from Greetings & Salutations", using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
