Life Without You is Unbearable! {WSC467}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and we have a super fun layout to work with this week!


I really had so much fun with this sketch! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and cut it using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then used the same Die-namics to cut a panel of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, and I then trimmed it down. I added a strip of patterned paper cut from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack to either edge of the Ripe Raspberry panel.

The circles were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the new A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. These are NEVER leaving my desk! I cut the pandas (aren't they SO cute?!) from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Panda Pals Die-namics and stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Panda Pals. I colored their cheeks with Copic Markers and then arranged the circles onto the panel, and added the pandas, popping them up with Foam Tape. I used the Fab Foliage Die-namics to cut the leaves from Green Room Prestige Card Stock and then added them to the panda panels. The sentiment was split, and I stamped half on the top of the card and half on the bottom using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

Check out this week's sketch!

Joy To The World! {CTD573}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and it is the last one for 2019! This week, Broni has challenged us to use the fantastic combo of lime green, hot pink and white! LOVE!


I used the awesome Serene Snowflakes to start off my card. I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I stamped the panel using Serene Snowflakes with Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and Limelight Premium Dye Ink. I stamped them both by first stamping off once, to achieve the lighter snowflakes, and then fully inked. 

The "JOY" was cut three times from Limelight Prestige Card Stock using the Filled With Joy Die-namics, and I layered each letter together and then added them to the stamped card panel. I then stamped "to the world", from Filled with Joy, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. A trio of rhinestones completes the card!

New Release Available Now!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time! The FABULOUS December MFT Release is available right now in the MFT Boutique! WOOT!!!

Today I have a card to share with you using the AWESOME new Heap of Hellos set! I LOVE this set!


The fonts in this set make me SO happy! I LOVE the mix of script and print fonts so much! I began with a panel of watercolor paper cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics, and using Distress Inks, created the watercolored background. 

Once the background dried, I stamped "hello FRIEND", from Heap of Hellos, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I layered the panel onto a panel of patterned paper cut from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, and I popped it up with foam tape. Super simple card, but I really love it!

Final Countdown: 1 Day Until the New Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

We have reached the final countdown! The AMAZING December MFT Release will be available tomorrow, December 10th at 10AM EST in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the sweet new Bear Hug Bunch and Bear Hug Bunch Die-namics! SO CUTE!


This set is SO fun! I began by cutting the moose, trees and clouds from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the new Bear Hug Bunch Die-namics, and stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Bear Hug Bunch. I colored them with Copic Markers and then put them to the side.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using Distress Oxide Inks, created the background. I added a panel of Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock, also cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I trimmed it down and added it to the main panel. I then arranged the trees all along the horizon line, and popped up the moose with foam tape. He is SO cute, and I intentionally left him all alone on the card to go along with the sentiment. I added the clouds to the sky and then added the sentiment panel, which was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and I stamped the sentiment using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

How SWEET are these two? LOVE! I cut them from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the You're My Person Die-namics, and stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using You're My Person. I colored them with Copic Markers and put them aside.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, I sponged on the ink where I wanted to place the girls. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Party Patterns Paper Pack, cut with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then popped the girls up onto the panel using foam tape. The sentiment panel was cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "You're My Person" using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I cut "smile" four times from Smooth White Card Stock using the new Big Smile Die-namics, layered the letters together, and then added them to the card over the balloons. I stamped the sentiment, "SMILE! IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY", from Smile Maker, under the die-cut smile using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I drew in, lightly, balloon strings using a Copic Marker, and then finished off the card with a trio of clear enamel dots.
