MFT Birthday Project Cheers to Another Year...

This month's birthday project is a fun one!  MFT has given us this challenge...

Time to celebrate another trip around the sun with a favorite beverage…coffee or tea for a birthday brunch or maybe cocktails or wine for a night on the town! For this month’s challenge, create a birthday card that includes the drink of your choice. Cheers to another year!

MFT has lots of different drink options to choose from.  Wine, Coffee and these adorable Soda bottles....

MFT Birthday Project

To create this card, I used the Wonky Stitched Squares to cut out the perfect rectangle for the bottles to be display.  I stamped the sentiment along the bottom, added some stripped pattern paper to the card base and then popped the front frame up on foam tape.  I added in the soda bottles after heat embossing those adorable labels and then I added in silver bottle tops.  Last, I die cut one of the bottle tops in silver cardstock and then added in the little happy birthday label.  I just love those dies!  They are so adorable!

MFT Birthday Project

The Birthday Project over at MFT will have a full list of the stops to make to see lots of birthday inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Have a great day!

This next card uses the new Blushing Blooms paper pack and that beautiful Fancy Hello Die....

Altenew April 2019 Release

Talk about a quick and simple card!  The back 2 layers are from the new paper pack and then I added the hello in a coordinating card stock color.  I finished the card off with some clear dew drops.

This last stamp set is one of my faves!  It's called Rose Spray....

Altenew April 2019 Release

I simply stamped out the stems and blooms on a white card panel.  I added in the sentiment from the More Than Words Stamp Set. Next, I cut 1/4" strip off the side of the card and added it to the card base lined with a piece of black and white striped paper.  Super easy!

Spellbinders Glimmer of the Month

This card was super easy to make.  I used my Glimmer Hot Foil System to foil the letters all in one pass.  So easy!  I used  the smallest Nestabilites Classic Rectangle die to cut out each letter.  

Spellbinders Glimmer of the Month

I added some wash tape to a panel on the front of the yellow card base and then attache each letter with foam tape for some dimension.

Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Blog Hop....


Welcome to the Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Blog!  Today a few friends and I are showcasing these AMAZING new embossing folders that have a fun feature....they also add little cuts.  Its is such a fun look for a quick and easy card design.  

Here is today's project....

Untitled

To create this card, I ran the Floral Reflections Emboss and Cut Folder through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 machine.  This produced the most amazing, detailed, embossed panel with small circle cuts on each flower.  I added this panel to a piece of yellow card stock so it would show through the flower centers on the front.  After adhering the 2 panels together, I added a leaf and flower die cut from the Floral Four Die Set.  I added a small yellow Nestabilities Classic Rectangle Die cut with a heat embossed sentiment, right in the center of the embossed panel.  I filled each flower center with Glossy Accents for some shine.  Super easy to put this card together!

MFT Wednesday Sketch 432...


Are you in a crafty slump?  I think the best remedy for that is a sketch!  This week's sketch over at MFT is definitely one to get your mojo going. 

Check out my clean and simple card...

MFT

I had to highlight the new Fishtail Flag Trio dies which worked perfectly with the sketch.  I added a light gray panel to one side of the card and then lined up the Fishtail flags along the bottom after heat embossing a sentiment on the bottom one.  I added in little vellum hearts for an extra detail.

MFT

Here is this weeks sketch....


Stop by the MFT Blog to learn more about the challenge and to link up your own card.  

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Have a great day!

MFT and Friends...

Happy release day!  MFT's April Release is now live and ready to shop.  LOTS of cute things this month....whats on your list?

I have one last card using the Little Piggy Die-namics....

MFT and Friends

To create this card, I stenciled up the clouds and the grass.   I added in the little fence from Scene Spring Builder and then stamped the miss you sentiment from Love is in the Mail.  Last, I die cut the Little Piggy but glued him up backwards so it looks like he is looking out into the clouds.  I love that little tail!  To finish off the card, I tucked in a couple Birthday Balloons in behind.

MFT and Friends

That is it for me today.  Stop by a the MFT Blog to see more about the April Release.  

Thanks so much for coming by today!

MFT April Countdown Day 1...

It's the last day of the MFT Countdown.  Release day is tomorrow!  Are you stopping excited?

I have a peek for today using the adorable Ric Rac die.  It made for a fun clean and simple card....

Print

I just added 4 colors to my white card base and then topped it off with the Hugs die popped up in fun foam.  Super clean and simple with fun pops of color!

The MFT Blog will have lots more to see. The Design Team has an amazing line up for today!

Hope you have a great day!

MFT April Release Countdown Day 2...

It's day 2 of the April Release Countdown!  There are several things being released today over at MFT but there is a die....that I love!!  

Check out the new Window Die-namics...

MFT

To create this card, I masked off an area and added in some cloud stenciling. I scored the rest of the card front every 1/4" to give the look of thin ship lap. 

MFT

Next, I added in the branch, the little heart die cut and the sentiment, "thinking of you" from Sweetest Somebunny, inside the window.  I popped the window die cut up with a foam tape border so it would have a little dimension from the card base.  I love how the die comes with scored lines for the windows so they can open and close.  

MFT

Check out the rest the Design Team creations by heading over to the MFT Blog.  Lots more to see before release day is here on Tuesday, April 9th!

Thanks for coming by today!
