Hello

I have a fun card to share with you today, it is based on the new sketch challege. I cut some strips in Lemon Drop, Orange Zest, and Summer Splash card stock. I placed the strips on to Ultimate Adhesive to create a pattern. I used the Simply Hello Die-namics to die-cut the hello. I used a paper trimmer to trim down the striped diagonal piece.

Reach for the Stars

We are seeing stars with this month's Hits & Highlights. I created a rainbow of stars with the Inside & Out Stitched Stars Die-namics and a handful of my favorite colours of card stock.  The sentiment was created with a stamp from Written in the Stars and a Shining Stars die-cut.

Hello

I have a fun card to share with you today for the new color challenge. It features some of the small, supporting stamps in the Mod Birds stamp set. I stamped the leaves in Summer Splash and Tropical Teal Premium Dye Ink. The flowers were stamped with Wild Cherry, and the circles in Coral Crush.


The hello was created with the new Simply Hello Die-namics. I just love this font!

Get Well Soon

We have a clean and simple sketch for you this week. I decided to ink up the fabulous Wildflowers stamp set. I stamped the images on X-Press It card stock and coloured them with Copics. I created the background with a few of the gorgeous blue Oxide inks. The sentiment is from the new Greetings Galore stamp set.

Happy Birthday

We are back with a few of our favourite friends to take another look at the release. I have a couple of cards to share with you featuring the Happy Birthday Script Die-namics.  For some strange reason, when I first saw this die, I wasn't that excited about it. I don't know what I was thinking, this die is amazing!

I created a couple of Bokeh backgrounds using Oxide Inks and Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. The Happy Birthday sentiment is double stacked to give it a little more height on the card.


I added a touch of sparkle with the Silver Sparkle card stock and the Clear Round Drops.

Sweet Winter Wishes

I hope you have enjoyed all the release products and design team projects this month. I have one more to share with you today. My card features the fabulous Circle Trio Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and the Circle Trio Shaker Pouches. This is such a fun set of products to work with. For this card, I paired them the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics. Don't those little snowmen look cute?


To turn the circles into ornaments I used a little tab from Tag Builder Blueprints 6. I adhered Ultimate adhesive to the back of the card stock before I cut the circle frame and the top of the ornament, this makes for quick and easy assembly.

When I assembled the ornaments on the card front, I wanted the little tab to be behind the circle frame, but I didn't want to secure the tab down right away. I placed a small piece of the adhesive backing behind the tab to stop it from sticking to the card stock. This allowed me to add the twine a little later.

I made a quick and easy template that I store with the Circle Trio Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics. I use this to line up the images so I can see how they will appear in the circles.


When putting together a triple shaker like this, don't forget to treat is shaker as an individual unit. That way your sequins or glitter will stay in each of the circle pouches and they won't escape. 


Thank you so much for joining me again today. I hope you learned a tip or two. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the amazing creations the design team has to share with you today.

Sending Blessings

The new Pure Innocence Sending Blessings stamp set is simply adorable. I had origially planned to create a fall themed card with this set, but I ended up with something completely different! I stamped the image on a piece of X-Press It card stock and I coloured it with Copics. I created the background with Faded Jeans Oxide Ink.

It's Been a Long Time

It's about that time again, time for another sketch challenge. We have a simple one for you this week. I inked up the adorable new Playful Giraffe stamp set. The scene was created with the Drifts & Hills Stencil and the Mini Cloud Stencil and a few of my favourite Distress Inks.
