It's time for the MFT Creative Challenge... and this month we are sharing ideas using Cork! I love the textures that come from using cork... so fun! I was in need of a few Thank You cards... and hadn't gotten a chance to use the new Many Thanks Die-namics. I See how fun that texture is! The help is glued down with liquid glue under those two select leaves. That last card was more feminine so I made a contrasting... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! It's time for the MFT October Release Rewind. I have some non-traditional cards to share with you today! This card is based on one of this MFT Sketches from this month.

Welcome back friends! I've got a few more cards to share using products from the new MFT Release. Love the new Diamond & Dots Borders. I also hadn't had an opportunity to play with the new Falling Leaves Die-namics... they are darling. This card shows a little 3-d letter fun with Words of Gratitude Die-namics.

Welcome back friends! Today I'm shouting out for a wonderful new MFT Background stamp.... Burlap! Look at that awesome background. SO COOL! That's Kraft ink on Natural Cardstock. I love the natural fiber feel to this stamp so I incorporated felt into the card using the circle option in Out on a Limb Die-namics! I also used these cute little birds from Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds die cut in Red Hot Felt for a little color pop! Don't they look great... Continue reading

Thanks SO much!The glitter I used for this post is Prisma... translucent. It's a great basic glitter that lets the cardstock color still play a big role. Any colored glitter is Doodlebug. HTH!
