Welcome back friends! Brrr.... we've been slammed with snow! I love snow and am so happy to see the blanketed hills of the Palouse. I've got a little card to share with you today showing another idea for my new Stars Above stamp set and Die-namicss. Every once in a while a photo just doesn't catch the light that a card really does give off. I tried several times to show how much these fun stars shine and the background... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I've got a fun and simple card I'm sharing for MFT's Wednesday Sketch Challenge. This sketch (309) is pretty easy to follow and use as a starting point. Chill Wishes is such a fun stamp set. The over all feel of this little guy as a whole is rectangular so I thought he worked great on this sketch. His hat has a little sparkle... er... I mean "snow". :) The vertical strip is actually two die cuts... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today I have a fun "Out of the Box" card to share using MFT's new Card Kit.... I love the colors included in the kit... but thought it would be fun to share more of the colors that I have in my great room/kitchen area. I LOVE color. I love red and aqua together, mixed with dashes of mustard. It may not be the trend for home decore but it's what makes me smile and feel cozy.... Continue reading

Hello friends,welcome back! Today I'm returning with a card that uses some of the newest MFT products. There seems to be a lot of need for me to send this type of card lately. I'm glad that I can create something personal though. I think it adds a nice touch. The standout products I used are the Deepest Sympathy stamp set and the Roses in Bloom die-namics. Such versatile products. I die cut two of each rose. I layered the... 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

Welcome back friends! Today I'm sharing a card using the new Happy Wonderful Christmas Die-namics. Boy, is this die fun and easy to use. I stamped the panel first with images from the Oh Christmas Tree stamp set, then die cut everything then adhered the panel to a Red Hot card base. I added back the insides of the letters to make sure it looked super crisp. I love Quickie Glue for that. That's a wrap for this post... Head... Continue reading

Hello friends, welcome back! It's that time... when you can enjoy shopping for all your new MFT favorites. I've got one last card to share showing some of mine. The new Peaceful Greetings Die-namics is lovely. So many uses... a great set to have on hand because the occasions that they are needed for aren't usually planned for.

Hello friends! We are down to the last day of the MFT Oct. New Release Countdown and I've got a sweet, clean and crisp card to share.

I love Stitched Flowers Die-namics and Thanks Die-namics! These are some amazing dies. Look at all the layering possibilities! Look at the shine on this... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I've got a CAS card to share with you today for the MFT Release Rewind! One of my favorite tricks is to turn my stamp upside down and use the base to stamp a solid shadow for the image. This really works with images that are symmetrical... like most in Geometric Greenery! Sometime I just want to add color but don't want to color... crazy huh. Anyhow, this trick is and oldie but goodie for sure! That's... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I've got a really fun MFT September Release Countdown Sneak Peek card to share with you today using the new Split Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics and my new Geometric leaves stamp set and dies. Now... I used a trick that I saw another designer use (I wish could remember who so I could give them proper credit) that makes transferring the negative space elements of a die a snap... using Glad Press and Seal plastic wrap. Well... that's... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today I get to share with you a collaborative card using my MFT Celebrate with Cake stamp set and Chibi lights! These fun lights sure pack a punch! With my card I trimmed out the inside of my bitty candles and used a rounded toothpick to smooth out the edges of the cut. I placed a yellow chibi light behind the focal panel to get a bigger impact. White would work but the yellow really stood out.... Continue reading
