Happy Valentine's Day! {CC101}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday and Happy Valentine's Day!

It's time for a new MFT Color Challenge, and the colors are Gravel Gray, Sweet Tooth, Red Hot and Electric Red! LOVE!!

I love this little fox SO much! I created him using the Friendly Fox Die-namics from Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock and Sweet Tooth Card Stock. I added some color to his cheeks and ears using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I popped him up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Red Hot Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. 

The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" from Sweet Celebrations, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. The main panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the heart stamp from Sweet Celebrations, I stamped a patterned background using Red Hot Premium Dye Ink and Electric Red Premium Dye Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Mission Control, We Have a Birthday! {WSC424}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!


It's time for a new My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge! We have a super fun sketch for you this week!

I had a BLAST with this sketch! I used the DARLING Space Explorer set and Space Explorer Die-namics for my card. I began by cutting out the astronaut, planet and star from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Space Explorer Die-namics. I stamped them all using Space Explorer with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and then colored them all using Copic Markers. I used Glossy Accents on his helmet so it is SUPER shiny in real life.


The background is 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 from the Birthday Blowout Paper Pack. I then cut a panel of Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and popped up the astronaut on top with Foam Tape. I stamped "Mission Control, We Have a Birthday!" on the bottom using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and then added the planet and star on the top of the card, popping them both with foam tape.

You're My Ride Or Die! {CTD530}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!


It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Wanda has challenged us to use fuchsia, light gray and black! Great combo!


I had so much fun creating my card, it's been AGES since I used alcohol inks. I began with a panel of Yupo Paper and created a background using Raspberry Alcohol Ink. Once the panel was dried, I cut it using the Hearts Entwined Die-namics. I then cut four panels of Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Hearts Entwined Die-namics, and then layered them together, with the alcohol ink panel on top.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then added the layered die cut on top. I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped "You're My Ride or Die", from Sassy Pants Love, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I added the sentiment panel on top of the die cut hearts, and then finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

You're Amazing! {CTD529}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Vickie is our hostess! She has challenged us to use red, yellow and orange! Fun colors!


This card was super fun to create! I began with the background, and cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. Using the new Geometric Stars Stencil, I sponged on Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. SWOON!

I am OBSESSED with the new Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-namics, and used it to cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, and to cut a panel of Poppy Prestige Card Stock for the sentiment panel. I cut the sweet juggling cat and his juggling balls from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Spectacular Birthday Die-namics. I stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Spectacular Birthday and then colored them with Copic Markers. I popped them up onto the Smooth White Card Stock panel using foam tape. I stamped "You're Amazing" from Spectacular Birthday onto the sentiment panel using Versamark Ink, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. A trio of enamel dots completed my card.

February MFT & Friends!

Hi everyone! It's time!! The incredible February MFT Release is live and available now! WOOT!!

Today I have a card to share with you using the PRECIOUS new Raccoon Cutie Die-namics! OMG, I am in LOVE!!


These raccoons are SO easy and fun to create! I made two, a boy and a girl, and cut them both using the new Raccoon Cutie Die-namics from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock and Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock. I used enamel dots for their eyes (I saw Barbara Anders do that and thought it was GENIUS), and added some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink to their cheeks. I cut the bow and heart from Cotton Candy Card Stock using Blueprints 26 Die-namics and the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics, respectively. I love them!

The background was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Distress Oxide Inks using the Lots of Heart Stencil. The sentiment is from the previously released Friendly Raccoons, and I stamped it using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

We are almost there! The FABULOUS February MFT Release goes live tomorrow, February 5th at 10AM in the MFT Boutique! WOOT!

Today I have a card to share with you using the ADORABLE new Party Penguins, Party Penguins Die-namics and the Card-Sized Confetti Stencil Set! LOVE!!!

I cannot even STAND how cute these penguins are, and they are SO easy to create! I cut them, their party hats and the sign using the Party Penguins Die-namics from Smooth White Card Stock. I stamped the penguins with Party Penguins using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and Orange Zest Premium Dye Ink. The sign and sentiment were stamped using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and the party hats were stamped using Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. LOVE. I colored the sign and star with Copic Markers.

For the background, I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the new Card-Sized Confetti Stencil Set (which I ADORE), I sponged on the same Distress Oxide Inks I used to stamp the party hats. I added a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock to the bottom of the card, cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a strip of patterned paper cut from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack.
