Say It in a Starburst Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!!

It's time to share the AMAZING new MFT Card Kit with you! Introducing, the Say it in a Starburst Card Kit! I am IN LOVE!!! This incredible kit will be available on Tuesday, August 20th at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!


This kit is SUPER fun and really packs a punch! For my card, I began with panel of Whip Cream Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Radiating Rays Stencil and lightly sponged on Peach Bellini Premium Dye Ink. I layered the panel with a mat of Gold Sparkle Card Stock, which I LOVE.

The circle starburst was cut from Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock using the new Starburst Die-namics, and I then cut it out using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics. The sentiment panel was cut from Whip Cream Card Stock using the new Starburst Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped the sentiment, "Celebrate", from Say it in a Starburst, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. A trio of gold sequins finished off the card.

Hello! {WSC450}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and this week we are up to WSC450! I LOVE this sketch, and had so much fun creating my card!


I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Card-Sized Star Confetti Stencil Set and sponged the panel using Ripe Raspberry, Pineapple and Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Inks. I cut the tag from Natural Card Stock using the Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics, and popped it up onto the main panel using foam tape.

The horizontal strip tag was cut from Black & White Stripes Paper Pack using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. The star was cut from Ripe Raspberry Card Stock using the Star Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, and I popped it up with foam tape. I cut "hello" from Smooth White Card Stock four times using the Thanks & Hello Die-namics, layered them together, and added the die-cut word to the tag. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

August MFT Vault Release: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Did you see the SUPER exciting news? MFT is opening the vault, and every month will be releasing a selection of retired goodies! Amazing, right?

Today I have a card to share with you using the ADORABLE Sweet Birthday Wishes and Sweet Birthday Wishes Die-namics! I just love this little gal!


I had so much fun creating this card! I began by cutting this cutie, and her gifts, from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Sweet Birthday Wishes Die-namics. I stamped them all with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Sweet Birthday Wishes, and then colored them with Copic Markers. 

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, cut using the same Die-namics, from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack. I cut a coordinating piece of patterned paper using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and popped that panel up using Foam Tape. I then added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I popped it up with foam tape. I then popped up the birthday girl and her presents using foam tape. I wrapped the main panel with white twine and then finished off the card with a bow of the same.

Hi Cutie! {CTD555}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge and this week, I am hosting! This week we have the combo of green, yellow, pink and lavender! LOVE!


When I was up in New Hampshire last month, I stopped to visit my pal Vanessa at Butterfly Reflections, and I picked up some super fun goodies! Today, I used a few of those! I used the darling Fiddle Leaf and Fiddle Leaf Dies from The Stamp Market, along with the Leafy Stencil from Gina K Designs. SO fun.

I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the Leafy Stencil, I sponged on Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks. When the panel was dry, I trimmed it down and then added it to another panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the same die.

I cut the fiddle leaves, pot and branch from Smooth White Card Stock using the Fiddle Leaf Dies and then stamped them using Fiddle Leaf with Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink and Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink. I added them to the main panel, popping the pot and leaves up with foam tape. I added the heart to the center of two of the leaves. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment, "hi cutie", using Obsidian Pigment Ink from Altenew.
