MFT Product Launch...

HI Crafty Friends!  Have you been enjoying the latest MFT release?  Everything is up and ready over at the MFT store if you're ready to shop!

I have a fun little card for today's Product Launch.  I used the new set called Stay Cool and the Cool Cup die...


I cut out the stitched background panel and stamped the sentiment in Wild Cherry.  Then I cut out the different parts to the cup, including the whip cream in white and a vellum cup top.  I added in a heart die and the covered it in glitter for a little bling.  I put the whole front panel on a card cover in the brown striped paper from the Dot and Stripes Neutral Paper Pack.  


I know there will be lots more to see tonight, so head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other girls have up their sleeves!  Happy hopping!  Thanks for stopping in!

MIM: Stripes

I love a good CAS card, and I love some good stripes.  Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Super Stripes are just that.  My favorite!  A fun and easy element to add to a card in so many different ways.  I have a Make it Monday video to share today, showing how I made this front panel and then several cards from the past (at the end of this post) using stripes in different ways.  Hope you are inspired and can play along.  Stop over to Nichole's blog to link up your creation!

I have a quick little CAS card inspired by Donna Mikasa.  She made a gorgeous watercolor soda bottle card while back and just love how she kept the bottles simple.  So I thought I'd make one too...

September MFT 2016

First, I did 5 swatches of ink blending in rainbow order.  Then I went through and positioned the bottle die on the best area of blending from dark to light.  I attached them all on a one inch strip and stamped the sentiment.  I thought they needed a little more detail, so I cut them in half and then ran a strip of gold behind.  I popped the panel up on foam tape for a little more dimension.

I just love these bottle dies and the coordinating stamp set.  There are so many possibilities for SO many types of cards.

What are you up to today?  Getting crafty?  I only had 2 patients at work today...normally I see 10....so I have had some fun quiet time to get some work done.  Hope that you are having a great day too!

The glossy ampersand...

I love ampersands.  I'm sure I have told you that in the past.  Several times.  So when I find new ampersands, I of course, have to buy them.  MFT has some.  CUTE ones.  A little pack of dies that is oh so fun!  I mixed one up today with Label Maker sentiments to make this card...


I couldn't get a good photograph of the background, but I used the Chevron Cover Up with some Berrylicious ink to make a subtle background.  Then I added the large stitched piece from Blueprints 22.  I cut out 6 of the ampersands to make a 3D image and then topped it off with Glossy Accents.  I added in the sentiments, popped up on foam tape and then finished it all off with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Hope you have a great Thursday! Thanks for stopping in today!

thank you kindly...

I am actually in my craft room today.  It is a disaster in here.  I really think that is what is keeping me away....well that and our crazy schedule.  Anyway, glad to be back in here and I have found 6" of space to work in to make this little card!

September MFT

I used MFT's Fall Florals, Pretty Delicate Poppies and Double Stitched Square Dies to create this card.   That and a little Berrylicious and Sour Apple ink.  :)  I inked up the card base and then added in the larger square die.  I stamped the sentiment on the smaller square and added in the Fall Floral image and some dew drops.  Super simple!

So glad you came by today!  Hope all is well with you!
