Welcome back, friends!Today I'm sharing a fun little square card that I created for a friend. I've used MFT Stars Above as the focal stamp and Die-namics images. I love Gold heat embossed on Pink. I used a Copic marker to selectively color the stars too. I love the Wonky Stax. They add a lot of motion to a card. It's been a while since I created a square card. I've got to remember how much I like them next... Continue reading

Hi Friends! I'm back to share a fun interactive card for the MFT's Challenge, Blueprints 11 is mainly used for this card. I started out thinking it would turn into a shaker card but decided that I wanted a pull out element. I found a little half circle die in Blueprints 7 that worked perfectly to create an opening for the channel. The panel in Blueprints 11 was cut three times and the middle panel was then die cut with... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today I'm sharing a serene card created with several new MFT Die-namics. There are so many new lovely ones to choose from. I've left the photos a little dark so that you can still see the detail with the almost all white card. I love birch trees in the snow, they feel peaceful to me. Always have. I think it's from growing up in Alaska and Birch trees being so prevalent. To add a little depth, I... Continue reading
