Altenew December 2018 Stamp Release Hop...

Welcome to the December 2018 Altenew Release Hop!  I am so happy to be joining the girls at Altenew this month to share some amazing new stamps and dies.  Throughout this post, you will be able to see my 3 samples using new stamps, a giveaway and at the bottom, there is a full list of stops on this hop!  

First up, a card using the new Nature Snippets Stamp set, along with the Mega Greetings 3 stamps and Friend die....

Altenew

Using the Nature Snippet set, I created a fun background in spring colors.  I did a little ink blending a piece of cardstock so my reds would match and then die cut the friend sentiment.  I cut a little banner and stamped the "For My" from the Mega Greetings set.  To finish off this card, I added some clear rain drops for a fun little detail.

I used Nature Snippets again for this clean and simple card...

This was super easy and quick to create.  Stamping the gorgeous circle image in the background and then adding the sentiment on top, makes for a fast card!

For this last card, I wrapped a light gray card base and wanted to keep going with the gray theme, so I decided to create the flowers in gray with little pops of red in the center...

I popped up the card front panel onto the card base and then added in the darker gray thank you die cut.  This new set is called Ruffled Flowers and it is definitely one of my new favorites!  These flowers are gorgeous and so easy to stamp!

Paper Hug {The Stamp Market}...

The Stamp Market just had a new release the other day and when I saw this paper hug from Hugs and Hellos dies, I may have done a little happy dance....that coincided with some sort of happy screech.  You may have thought I was about to pass out or something.  So, of course, it went in to my cart asap.  And then it got here super fast, so I whipped this up today....

The Stamp Market

I love Stamp Markets stamps and dies because of the clean and simple possibilities.  It doesn't take much to make something easy when their products just jump off the cardstock on their own.  This paper hug?  It totally does that!  

To create this card, I used an MFT stencil and did a little ink blending in the background.  I added that panel to a white card base.  Next, I die cut both the sentiment and its shadow in white.  Because all the white, right?  I layered them up using some Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and then added it to the card base with foam tape for another layer of dimension.  And done.  LOVE!  

The Stamp Market

I am pretty sure now I just want to make paper hugs to send out instead of Christmas Cards.  hmmmm....I might do that!  :)

Thanks so for stopping in today!  Hope you have a great day!

MFT and Friends!

Hello Friends!  Today is release day over at My Favorite Things.  So many fun new stamps and dies to chose from!  Do you have a wish list?  I have one last card to share today using 2 new products...the best wishes dienamics and Blueprints 33.

Print

To create this card, I stamped the Floral Fantasy on a card base in light gray ink.  Next, I cut the 2 panels from Blueprints 33 out of vellum and the smaller one in white card stock.  Next, I popped those up on the card base and then topped it off with the glittery best wishes sentiment.  This makes for a quick and simple wedding or anniversary card.  

MFT and Friends

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see what else they have for today.  Happy Shopping!

MFT Release Countdown Day 2...

Hey there!  Its day 2 of the MFT December Release countdown.  Have you been seeing all the must have stamps and dies?  So many cute things this month as always!  Today I have a cute little card to share using the new set called Forever and Owlways....

Print

To create this card, I used the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack to create this gorgeous rainbow background.  I need one paper pack with all of this paper in it.  I just love this rainbow pattern!  I cut the back panel with the Rectangle Stitched STAX dies and then cut another smaller with rectangle with the same die set.  I stamped the owls in black in and left them in black and white so all the colors of the background could shine.  I had to add a heart, of course!  I found a little banner from the Tag Builder 5 and used it to add the sentiment on each side of the owls.

The MFT Blog will have lots more sneak peeks to see today.  Remember everything you see this week will be available on Tuesday, December 11th at 9am CST.  

So glad you stopped in!

MFT Release Countdown Day 3...

Good morning!  Today is day 3 of the MFT December Release Countdown and I am here with an adorable new set to share, called Fox and Friends!  I adore these little critters and just how easy they are to color up.  I created a clean and simple scene for todays card...

MFT December Release

To create this card, I crabbed the Peek-a-boo Circle Window die and die cut the front flap of the card base.  I added that adorable little gray fox on the front panel with foam tape and then masked off and staggered the sentiment on the bottom front of the card.

TMFT December Release

Next, I ink blended a scene on a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock so I would have that gorgeous cloud background and rolling green hills.  I added the little tree from the Trees of the Forest die set and added in a few hearts for a pop of color.

MFT December Release

Stop over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has for today.  Lots of sneak peeks are happening until the December Release is live on Tuesday, December 11th at 9am CST.

Hope you have a great day!
