Welcome back, friends! There's been a little Christmas party going on in my studio lately. I ADORE these Tall Tag Duo Die-namics and was super excited to create using them for MFT's Release Replay. I backed the Birthday Blowout patterned paper with a twin die cut in Smooth White cardstock. I've also used the new Joy Die-namics (that's been glittered) and Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics(free with $60). The Heat embossed sentiment is from Dashing Deer and is framed on... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today I'm sharing one last card for the MFT October release before you head off to shop for your new goodies. Handwritten Holiday is a fantastic LARGE sentiment set with lovely, swirly words. SO festive! I've heat embossed the focal sentiment in Gold while using the "falala" sentiment as a background. It's a fun way to bring music to the mind of the recipient. (I hope. LOL!) I also used Fab Foliage and Red Sequins as a... Continue reading

Hello friends, welcome back! Today I'm joining in on kicking of the MFT October Release countdown. Warm Holiday Wishes is a super cool and LARGE stamp that is full of fun and curvy letters. I love how much real estate it take up on a card too. Die-namics Scenic Snow Globe and Stencil Drifts & Hills also make a strong appearance in this card. I sponged on some Sweet Tooth pigment ink and added some glitter on top of glossy... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Fall is definitely in the air here in Eastern Washington. We had really cold weather and now we are going to hit close to 80 again. This is making all those beautiful leaves turn quickly and soon the region will be saturated with color. Today I've created a card using MFT's Plentiful Petals and Double the Smile Die-namics. It seems that there is a lot of need for me to give cards like this. Encouragement cards that... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today the MFT DT is sharing cards using products from the Essential Product line. I've use some fun sentiments from Essential Sentiments and More Essential Sentiments. The "You're too awesome" sentiment is a partial use of a sentiment. I love that I could selectively stamp that. I've also used Sketchy Flowers, Die-namics A2 Rectagle STAX set 1, and Die-namics Thanks & Hello. I used warm fall colors to fit this wonderful fall season we are in. The... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! Today I'm jumping in on the MFT September Release with a CAS card that features All Smiles. Rustic Wildflowers also make an appearance here too. Both are amazing stamp sets! I used a Quickie Glue Pen to adhere glitter to the stamped Smile image and center of the flower. Some warm fall colors were used here too. I love this green and almost forget about it until fall. Which is a shame. That's a wrap... This is... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! Today I'm joining in on the WSC348 for the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge and have this sweet little monster card to share. So, I flipped the sketch and put the sentiment on the top. This is a great sketch in any way it's used. More Monsters stamps and Die-namics are fun, and great products. I masked the monster so that I could sponge his tummy with Sno Cone ink. Make sure to head on over to the... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends. I put together a fun card that I wanted to share with you tonight using more of the new Fab Foliage Die-namics. I adore these MFT Die-namics! These dies come lightly joined together. I usually clip/bend the dies apart. But, I really like how they were configured. I thought they would look cool to create a negative and fill in with colored foliage. I also used the Die-namics Happy Greetings and Die-namics Mod Rectangle STAX to create... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! The time has come that you are able to head over to the MFT store to snag your new goodies. We all have one last card to share before you head over. I've put together this fun card using Written in the Stars and Shining Stars. These are some of the funnest new products. Lots of motion in the Die-namics for sure. I did some sponging on the Stars die cut. Usually I do the darker color... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends. I'm joining in with the MFT August release countdown today. The new Fab Foliage Die-namics is amazing. It might just be my new favorite of the dies. So delicate and versatile. I wanted an earthy/modern feel with this card. I die cut the die 3 times in the colors that are shown then placed the various branches in a way that was most natural feeling to me. This sweet sentiment is from the Wild About You stamp... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! Today the MFT DT are sharing a little extra using this month's new products. I wanted to make a neutral birthday card. Something I can send to a man or a woman. Celebrate Die-namics is a beautiful die. I've die cute Steel Blue cardstock to showcase it. Happy Birthday Circle Frame is a super fun addition too. Stop by the MFT Blog to who else has created for today. Please let me know if you have any... Continue reading

Welcome back, Friends! Well... the sneak peeks are over. As usual we are all sharing one last peek before you head over to MFT to snag some new goodies. Today I chose to use the new Celebrate Speech Bubble. It's a pretty straight forward card. I die cut the die four times using the various cardstock colors. Each little is then glittered and puzzle pieced in. I did layer a piece of scratch cardstock behind the black layer before so... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! For this last MFT countdown day I'm sharing a sweet and cheery friendship card featuring Sketchy Flowers. I layered the "You" die cut for that added dimension that I love so much... and added some glitter for some sparkle and shine! I created this for someone specifically. I find that I create differently when I do that... I create better. That's a wrap... This is the last day in the MFT July Release Countdown. All the new... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! Today I'm joining in to the MFT Sneek Peeks from the July release countdown. I wanted to show Big Thanks Die-namics and how it add a big punch to a card. I chose to layer it for a 3-D effect. I wanted to make a more masculine thank you card. Sketchy Blooms has several great foliage elements. Well, that's a wrap for today's post... Just two days left in the MFT July Release Countdown. All the new... Continue reading

Hi Friends, welcome back! Today I'm sharing a "sweet" card to show an idea for MFT's WSC340. It's a pretty straight forward sketch. I varied it by having the focal panel be filled with something. It's been a little while since I used my Sweet Treat Die-namics and You're the Sweetest Stamp set. With summer in full swing I thought this would be a cool card. LOL.. get it? *I know... I'm a dork* I went with a more pastel... Continue reading

Hi Friends! So, this is going to be a little different than my normal card posts. I wanted to share an awesome way to use your MFT Die-namics. They sure saved me in a pinch! My husband and I were asked to be a Ma & Pa for our Church Stake's Pioneer Trek. That's when all the youth, that wanted to go, reenact what the pioneers did by pulling a handcart on the trail for several miles. We are divided... Continue reading

Hi Friends! I hope you are all staying cool on this warm summer day. Today, for MFT's New Product Launch, I'm sharing a fun "squishy" card. Gotta love the sweet Jelly Fish that are in the Ocean Fun stamp set. I've also used the new Happy Greetings Die-namics. I love how the Black Licorice really pops the eyes on the Jellies. Each Jelly has been glitterfied and googly eyed. The open bubbles have been glittered too. Swim on over to... Continue reading

Hi Friends! Welcome back. Today I've got a patriotic thank you card to share. Patriotic is always in season, especially when thanking those who serve/served our country here in America. I've used the new Stitched Star Grid Die-namics to create this fun base. Big Thanks Die-namics is also used. I doubled the word to create a dimensional look. I LOVE both of these amazing new products. Well friends, two more days of the MFT June Release Countdown. All these wonderful... Continue reading

Hi friends... welcome back! Summer is starting to show up here and it's the beginning of Graduation season. Today I'm sharing a graduation card that features MFT's Wednesday sketch WSC335. You might be wondering... Graduation Whale? Well, this card is for someone who has a sweet sense of humor. I know they'll get a kick out of it. I used Ocean Pals for the main images. I followed the sketch pretty closely. I'm really enjoying working with these sketches. Give... Continue reading

Welcome back, friends! Today I'm sharing a MFT Blueprint card that features flowers and Foliage. I chose Blueprints 14 to showcase because a square card with a big flower fit the bill. :) I changed the sketch slightly by raising up the panel to the middle and by adding a different center to the flower. There is a fun button die in the set but I wanted to show how fun it is to score this flower center and then... Continue reading

Hi Gay, Seagulls are absolutely giddy when they find even a simple potato chip on the beach. It's quite darling to watch. So, this sentiment is a quirky and fun way to say that you want that giddy happiness for your friend. Thanks for your question! Lisa

Welcome back, friends! Today I've got a sunny MFT Seaside Seagulls card to share with you as one last peek before you fly of to MFT to catch all your fun new goodies. It's a darling stamp set. I'm such a beach lover and I was just telling my husband that I miss seagulls. It was so fun to reminisce as I planned this card. I also used Beach Scene Builder Die-namics. I paper pieced the gulls and layered them... Continue reading

Hi friends! Welcome back. Spring is in the air here for sure. I hope that you all are enjoying the beginning of May. Today I'm sharing a MFT May Release countdown sneak peek card using Doodled Blooms and More Essential Sentiments. I went with Black & White instead of bright and bold... or soft and subtle. The flowers and the sentiment were heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love how bold the white is when heat embossed. Well friends,... Continue reading
