Snow Globe Greetings Card Kit!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!!


It's time for the October MFT Card Kit, and this month, we have the fabulous Snow Globe Greetings Card Kit! LOVE! This awesome new kit will be released on Tuesday, October 22nd at 10AM EDT!


What a SUPER fun kit! I had lots of fun creating my card! I began with the background and cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then cut the panel again using the Tall Snow Globe Die-namics. The base of the snow globe was cut with the same Die-namics from Silver Sparkle Card Stock, and I then added a Tall Snow Globe Shaker Pouch. 

I used a panel of Kraft Card Stock for the back of the shaker, and using the new Mistletoe Kisses Die-namics, cut Gumdrop Green, Red Hot and Smooth White Card Stock. I added the mistletoe to the shaker, filled it up with sequins, and then closed the shaker. SO FUN! The sentiment panel was cut from Red Hot Card Stock and I stamped "Merry Kissmas", from the Snow Globe Greetings stamp set using Versamark and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a trio of sequins!

Holiday Inspiration with Essentials by Ellen and My Favorite Things!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

I am SO delighted to post today! MFT and Essentials by Ellen from Ellen Hutson have teamed up for holiday inspiration, and I have two creations to share with you combining MFT and Ellen Hutson products! SO.MUCH.FUN!!


My first card combines the DARLING Sew Cute Snowman from Ellen Hutson with the new Bitty Holiday Wishes and Snowfall -Vertical Stencil from MFT! I began by creating the snowman, and I cut Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, Snow White Card Stock, Red Hot Card Stock, Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock, Milk Chocolate Card Stock, Field Day Prestige Card Stock and Green Room Card Stock using the Sew Cute Snowman. I used embroidery tread to stitched the snowman. SO fun! I put him together and then added a trio of red enamel dots to his scarf.

The background of Kraft Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and I used the new Snowfall - Vertical Stencil and Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink to create the snowy background. The snow on the ground is Smooth White Card Stock cut first using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. The sentiment panel is Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut using the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "SENDING HOLIDAY CHEER", from Bitty Holiday Wishes, using Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added the snowman and sentiment to the main panel using foam tape.


I love his sweet little face!

My second card pairs the Retro Holiday Greetings from Ellen Hutson with the new Joyful Wreath Die-namics from MFT! LOVE! I began with the wreath and I cut Field Day Prestige Card Stock and Green Room Prestige Card Stock using the Joyful Wreath Die-namics. The berries were cut from Red Hot Card Sock using the same Die-namics.

The main panel of Kraft Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I placed the doubled up wreath on the card to see where I wanted to attach it. I then stamped "Time to Make Merry", from Retro Holiday Greetings, using Versamark and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I then added the wreath and berries, and added Glossy Accents to the berries to make them super shiny. The patterned paper, from the Candy Land Paper Pack, was also cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added it to the main panel. I then wrapped the panel with Hemp Cord and finished off the card with a bow of Hemp Cord. LOVE!

The Vault Is Open!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!


The MFT Vault has opened! I am SO excited to share that the ADORABLE Toasty Greetings has been released from the Vault! I just LOVE this sweet set!


I LOVE these sweeties! I cut the snowman, fire, penguin and snow balls from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Toasty Greetings Die-namics, and stamped them using Toasty Greetings with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers, and coated the fire with Glossy Accents.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using Distress Oxide Inks, created the night sky background. I cut two strips of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. I added the snow, and then the images, popping them up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used a white gel pen to add stars to the night sky.

Love You Forever! {CTD565}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, I am hosting! I have chosen a spooky combo of gray, lavender and black! LOVE!

I had SO much fun creating this card! I began by cutting a panel of Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock, and I stamped a pattern of skulls using the Layering Skull set from Erin Lee Creative using Cement Gray Premium Dye Ink. I layered the panel with a piece of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack.

The skull and flowers were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Layering Skull Die Set, and stamped them with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink, respectively. I popped them up with foam tape onto a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut the sentiment from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Love You Forever die. SO fun!
