All Smiles Card Kit

Are you ready for another amazing card kit? I hope so, as we have a fabulous one for you! The new All Smiles Card Kit will be available on Tuesday, July 25 at 9:00pm EDT. This kit is full of fabulous florals and sentiments that are sure to make you smile.

I have a couple of cards to share with you today, I loved using this kit so much that I acutally made seven cards with it. I sat down to stamp with it one afternoon and I just couldn't stop! I went for a fairly clean and simle look on both of these cards. 


The flowers and leaves were stamped in the colors that coordinate with the colors of card stock in the kit. Don't they look lovely together?


I finished off the cards with a sentiment from the All Smiles stamp set. I LOVE this set and the coordinating dies!

Hip, Hippo, Hooray!

I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today, both of the feature the adorable Happy Hippos stamp set. These little guys are seriously cute! I stamped this guy on X-Press It card stock and coloured him with Copics. I used the fabulous Balloon Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and the Balloon Shaker Pouches to create the shaker balloon. The sky background was created with the amazing Mini Cloud Edges Stencil.


Check out this sweet little guy hiding a present behind his back. How adorable is he? I used the Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die-namics to frame the hippo. The patterned paper is from the new Proper Pinstripes Pastels and Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Pastels Patterned Paper.

You Deserve to Be Celebrated

It's time for the New Product Launch! All the Stamps, Die-namics, and Stencils can be found HERE. Please remember to visit each of the MFT Designers' July New Product Launch posts on the MFT Blog and leave a comment by the end of the day on Thursday, July 13 for your chance to WIN one of two, $100 Gift Vouchers. Ready? Set. Comment!   

I have five colourful cards to share with you today. They all feature the All About You stamp set, You Trio Die-namics, and the Split Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics

I started out wanting to create a card using some of the gorgeous new pastel pattterned papers. This month we released Proper Pinstripes Pastels and Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels. I paired these two packs with the previously released Tiny Hearts Pastels.


I picked four colours and then die-cut one sheet of each pattern in those four colours. I probably could have made another 5 cards with all the little pieces I had!

The sentiments were all stamped in Lavender Fields Hybrid Ink. The you sentiments were all die-cut in Lavender Fields card stock. Don't you just love having matching card stock and inks?


There are so many sentiment combinations you can come up with using the All About You stamp set and the You Trio Die-namics. It was hard to choose which ones to use.




Thank you so much for joining me all week. I hope we have inspired you to create something amazing! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the fantastic creations the design team has created to share with you. Don't forget to comment for your chance to win a gift voucher.

The new Celebrate Die-namics is one of my favourites from this release. I just love the look of the font and I know I am going to get a ton of use out of it. For this card I paired it with the fabulous Heart-Shaped Balloon Die-namics.


To create the rainbow effect, I sponged the various colours of Premium Dye ink on Smooth White card stock. I added adhesive sheets to the back of the card stock before I die-cut it. To keep the word celebrate straight, I used the negative as a gudie when adhering the letters.

 I created the background with the new Mini Cloud Edges Stencil. Yes, you heard me, we know have a mini version of the Cloud Stencil.


For my next card, I paired this little guy from Fierce Friends with the You Trio Die-namics and the All About You Stamp Set.

I filled the shaker with all sorts of fabulous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Happy Birthday to You

Thank you for joining me as we count down to the MFT release. We are three days away from the big day! All the new Stamps, Die-namics, and Stencils will be available on Tuesday, July 11 at 9:00 pm EDT. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the new items being revealed today. Don't forget to leave a comment on the MFT Blog countdown posts, YOU could win one of the five $75.00 gift vouchers. 

We have two adorable Pure Innocence sets debuting this month. I used the Happy Birthay to You Stamp Set and Die-namics to create this card.  I stamped the image on a piece of X-Press It card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and I coloured her with Copics.



I die-cut a Fringed Scallop Border in X-Press It card stock and again coloured it with Copics. I decided to colour this piece instead of cutting it out of coloured card stock as the plain, bold colour didn't look right with the coloured image.

I created the background using the Framework Stencil and a handful of my favourite Premium Dye Inks. The sentiment was created with the amazing Celebrate Die-namics. I die-cut two pieces of Black Licorice card stock and layered them to make the sentiment pop off the page.

Celebrate

It's our birthday month and we are in the mood to celebrate! We have a fabulous brithday release in store for you this month. We are only five days away from the big day! All the new Stamps, Die-namics, and Stencils will be available on Tuesday, July 11 at 9:00 pm EDT. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the new items being revealed today. Don't forget to leave a comment on the MFT Blog countdown posts, YOU could win one of the five $75.00 gift vouchers. 

I have a couple of cards to share with you today that feature the fabulous Celebrate Speech Bubble Die-namics. For my first card I created a fun shaker card. This die is just perfect for creating shaker cards.


I used a few of my favourite colours of Distress Inks to colour a piece of Smooth White card stock, which I then die-cut with the Celebrate Speech Bubble Die-namics. I placed a piece of acetate behind the speech bubble, created a shaker with foam tape, and then filled the shaker with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a few Diamonds.

After creating the first card I was left with these colourful letters, of course I couldn't let them go to waste. I die-cut the Celebrate Speech Bubble in Black Licorice card stock. I pieced in the inked letters.

I used the same four Distress Inks on the background to mimic the colour blending on the letters. 

The card matches perfectly with a Razzle Berry envelope from the Assortment 2 Envelopes.
