For My Little Buddy! {CTD540}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Wanda has challenged us to use yellow, orange, green and navy! LOVE!


I really had fun with these colors! I pulled out the darling Birdie Brown Little Buddies set, and cut this little cutie from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Little Buddies Die-namics. I stamped him with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Little Buddies, and then colored him with Copic Markers. I popped him up onto a circle cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and then again using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. 

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the Star Celebration Stencil, I sponged on Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink, Coral Crush Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink and Blueberry Premium Dye Ink. LOVE. I then added the circle element, and for the sentiment panel, I cut a strip of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock and stamped "For My Little Buddy" from Little Buddies, using Versamark and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time! The FABULOUS new Flower Silhouettes Card Kit is available right now from MFT Stamps! YAY! This kit is SO much fun!


I really had SO much fun creating my card! I began by cutting two panels of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. One panel was the main panel of my card, and the other I cut again, using a smaller rectangle from the same die set, to create a mask. I placed the cut out panel on top of the main panel, and taped it down. Using Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink, Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink and blended them together.

With the mask still in place, I stamped three different images from Flower Silhouettes using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed them with Black Embossing Powder. LOVE!!! I kept this card SUPER simple, and added a sentiment panel cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped "SENDING YOU STREGNTH" from Essential Sentiments, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a trio of clear, sparkly enamel dots.

Flower Silhouettes Card Kit: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!

Today is Day 2 of the Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Reveal! This AWESOME kit will be available tomorrow, April 23rd at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!! I am having SO MUCH FUN creating with this kit!


This was SO fun to create! I began with a panel of the included Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the new Flower Silhouettes set, stamped (I think) all of the floral images using Coral Crush Premium Dye Ink, Peach Bellini Premium Dye Ink, Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink, Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink, Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink and Limelight Premium Dye Ink. LOVE this color combo!!

Using the new Simply Thanks Die-namics, which is the new Free With $60, I cut out "thanks" along the bottom of the card. I used the Simply Thanks Die-namics again and cut three panels of Smooth White Card Stock. I layered them together and then inset them into the die-cut word. I then coated the "thanks" using Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. LOVE.

Flower Silhouettes Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

It's time to reveal the FABULOUS new card kit from MFT...the Flower Silhouettes Card Kit! It is SO beautiful! The new Flower Silhouettes set is SO pretty, and the coordinating Flower Silhouettes Die-namics make creating these flowers a breeze! I am also completely crushing on the new Simply Thanks Die-namics, which is the new Free With $60! LOVE!


This card was SO fun to create! I began with the flowers, and cut them from the included Smooth White Card Stock using the Flower Silhouettes Die-namics. I stamped them using Flower Silhouettes using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Lavender Fields Premium Dye Ink, Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink and Pineapple Premium Dye Ink. I LOVE them!!

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics, and I sponged on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink using a blending brush. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, also cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I aranged the flowers and added then to the card. I cut "thanks", cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, six times, layered each layer together, and then added them to the card. I stamped "(A LOT)", which is part of a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

April Birthday Project Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for the April Birthday Project Challenge! This month, we are creating projects that feature drinks! It can be coffee, wine, margaritas, you name it!


Of course, I HAD to make a card with an alcoholic beverage! I LOVE this sweet penguin from Penguins In Paradise, and I sure could go for one of what he is having right now!! I cut him from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Penguins in Paradise Die-namics and stamped him with Penguins in Paradise using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. The pineapple and flower were also cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Polynesian Paradise Die-namics, and I stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Polynesian Paradise. I colored all three images with Copic Markers, and added shimmer to his cocktail using a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged the sky using Distress Oxide Inks. I used the Beach Scene Builder Die-namics to cut the sand from Kraft Card Stock, the ocean from Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock, the clouds from Smooth White Card Stock, and the palm tree from Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock and Jellybean Green Card Stock. I added some shimmer to the trio of coconuts in the tree. I arranged all of the images, popping them up with foam tape. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "Sip Sip Hooray!" fro Spirited Sentiments using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.
