Welcome back friends! Well, I've got a fun Release Replay MFT card to share today using something that we all end up with... scraps. I am one that keeps my scraps and the paper I created for THIS card had a small bit left over that was perfect for a tag. So, I created this card to showcase that scrap tag. Funky Flowers is such a fun stamp set... and it pairs so well with Whimsical Greetings! So, hang on... Continue reading

Grateful is one of my favorite words... that's why I"m so excited about this new MFT Grateful for You Stamp Set and Die-namics combo. I'm also in love with the new Bundles of Blossoms Background... isn't it beautiful! The panels and layers are from the new Blueprints 29. I sponged Smooth White Cardstock with Ripe Rasberry, Wild Cherry, Tangy Orange, and Lemon Drop... then I die cut the sentiment to get that rainbow effect. I love how clean and crisp...

Welcome back friends! I've got one quick Make Yourself at Home card to share before you head off to snag your new MFT goodies. It's so fun to create using my new set. I love being able to "decorate"! Each chair is paper pieced using pattern paper and shaded with a light gray Copic marker. I didn't want the white edge around the pillows and blanket so they were hand trimmed and adhered directly. I posted this photo yesterday but... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I'm back wit another MFT sneak peek card. I've created this fun card using Warm & Fuzzy Friends. This is a great set that was previously part of a card kit but you can buy it separately starting this release! I wanted something flat that I could send easily in the mail so I created a custom patterned paper. I colored all the images with Copic Markers. It was really therapeutic sitting here coloring these darling images.... Continue reading

I'm back with more from this month's MFT card kit. Sharing a little "out of the box" in the sense that I'm pulling in ink and die-namics that aren't included in the kit. There are some serious possibilities out there! I masked the space where the sentiment is before stamping the burlap background. The scalloped frame adds a little more dimension without the bulk. I brought in some brown ink to coordinate with the card. Easy peasy. I've got another... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Ready for some more buggy fun?! We've got more MFT new product ideas to share today! I love ladybugs. I remember being out in the garden with my little girls and seeing them collect one or two then bring them over to show me... and us talking about what great little workers they were. That's one of the many reasons I wanted to include ladybugs in my Fly-By Friends stamp set. I used colored pencils to color... Continue reading
