MFT June Card Kit Release....

It's time!  The MFT June Card Kit is available over at the MFT store!  You guys....this is a fun one!!

I have one card left to share.  This one uses 2 elements from the kit...the sentiment and the heart "flames".

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

I took the scalloped card front die from Blueprints 27 and the created a scalloped envelope for the card front.  I attached that to a ombre, ink blended card base.  Next, I took candles from the Make a Wish set and cut them out using patterned paper.  I popped one of them up on foam tape for a dimensional look.  I finished this card off with a pink sentiment and some glossy accents/glitter on the hearts.

MFT Card Kit Countdown...

Stopping in with day 2 of the MFT Card Kit Countdown.  This months kit, Birthday Wishes, has the perfect sentiment set, along with an adorable die set.  I love love this little envelope die and I had to use it....times 4.  :)

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

To start off this card, I heat embossed the sentiment along the bottom.  I love that big sentiment in this adorable font!  After heat embossing, I did some ink blending into an ombre finish on the card base.  Next, I added in the envelopes and finished it off with the little heart dies and some white gel pen for a little added detail.

MFT Card Kit Countdown....

Welcome to the MFT Card Kit Countdown!  The June Kit is called Birthday Wishes card kit...and I love it!!

I have grabbed some of my favorite colors along with a bunch of white space and created this fun little CAS card....

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

I used the scalloped frame to create the card front.  I did a little watercoloring and then die cut the "hello" (not included in the kit).  At this point, I pulled out the dies from the kit and created the little heart confetti filled, vellum envelope.  I sealed it up and then added the heart die cut, also from the kit dies, and covered it with glossy cents and glitter for some sparkle. 

June 2017 MFT Card Kit

Definitely a quick and simple card!  And that envelope die from the kit?  SO much fun!!  Head on over to the MFT blog to see some more samples with this months kit.  I will be back tomorrow with another card.  Have a great day!

CAS Flowers with Queen and Company....

Good morning!  I am stopping in right quick with a couple of CAS cards using some adorable flowers from Queen and Company.  The flowers, called Sparklers, are so adorable!  There is several different types of flowers in each pack, all with the same color.

For this first card, I used one single flower...

Queen and Company

I stamped the panda and sentiment and then added in the green stem.  The Sparklers have adhesive the back so it was really easy to just add it to the quick and simple card.

This next card was super easy to make.  I used that same stem from the first card, added in some Copic grass and a sentiment and then mixed up the flowers for a colorful garden.

Queen and Company

To finish it off, I added some clouds for a white on white look.

That is it for today.  So glad you stopped in!

Creative Construction with Blueprints....

It's time for another monthly round of Creative Construction with Blueprints over at My Favorite Things.  Here is this months challenge...

Flowers and leaves always add elegance and an inviting organic feel to your projects. Whether you build a bouquet of beautiful blooms or feature a single standout blossom, your recipient will be touched by your effort. Many of our Blueprints Die-namics feature floral accents and this month, our team has crafted a bevy of looks to inspire your next project.

For this months card, I used Blueprints 14 along with one of the sketches that is included on the printable pdf on the MFT website....

I used only one extra thing to create this card and that is the Hello die.  Every other element came form the Blueprints 14.  I did use a pice of the paper from the On-Point paper pack for the back layer.  I kept it simple by layering up white card stock, and then backed the "hello" with vellum to make it pop.  Last, I added in the flower and leaves to finish off.  


The girls have lots more to share with us over on the MFT blog.  Head on over there for lots more inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping in!

Embossed Envelopes...

Hey crafty friends!  I am stopping in today with a little envelope embossing.  Today I saw this little machine that would emboss your address into the flap of the enveloped.  It was expensive!  I knew with the tools we have, we can do this ourself and customize it!  So here are some pictures, which I know are kinda hard to see, but I also have a video to share how I made these fun embossed envelopes.  


These top 2 say "hugs" and "hello".  Such a fun little touch to our happy mail, right?


And another "hugs" and a "smile".

In this last picture, the white envelope shows a simple monogrammed W. They were hard to photograph but you can see a little more in the video.


ETA:  Here are 2 more I made this morning with an ampersand and a hello die....


Check out my video below.

Hope you enjoyed my video.  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Hope you have a great day!
