MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge...

I can't believe I haven't posted in a week!  I have been SO busy with some orders and helping with band camp that I have hardly been in my craft room.  But I had to stop back in for this week's MFT sketch Challenge because it is so much fun.  AND I took a ton of creative license with this one.  I basically used the angle in the corner and then just kept going from there.  :)

So here is today's card....

WSC  448

I did some stenciling in the background and then added the whole front panel with the Stitched Cloud Edge Dies.

I added in a line of Scor-tape and glitter across the top, 2 little fishtail strip ends along the top and then that fabulous sentiment in the middle!  I also added some Nuvo drops for one last detail.

Here is this week's sketch....

Have a great day!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge...


Happy Wednesday!  Its time for a new sketch challenge over at MFT.  I used this week's sketch to create a whimsical, cloud filled card with just a little pop of color!

MFT WSC 444

First off, I added some blue ink blended in to the card base to create the background sky.  I added 2 layers of Stitched Cloud Edges for the main sketch element.

Next, I tucked in that adorable rainbow, from Fairy Tail Friends, behind the clouds.  Using a sentiment strip, I added in the sentiment also from Fairy Tail Friends  across the top.  Last detail was a few clear drops on the card front.

MFT WSC 444

Here is this week's sketch.....I love how this sketch brings LOTS of possibilities! 


Check out the MFT Blog for more info on today's sketch.  There is also a link up so you can play along too!  

Hope you have a great day!

The Greetery Mini Release...


Hi friends!  The Greetery is having a little Mini Release packed full of awesome!  I wanted to stop in today and share a couple cards using the new dies.  All the new dies being release, coordinate with June's release.  Stunning new sunflower dies, Crimped Frame dies that add the perfect detail to any card, an awesome greenery set to go with the pots.....the perfect additions to the existing sets!  Let's get started!


The Greetery

I grabbed the middle sized frame die and die cut it in white card stock.  I blended in some teal ink around the frame.  I used different color yellow card stocks along with some yellow ink blending to create the blooms.

The Greetery

After layering them on the card front, I stamped the sentiment from Just Mason Around Stamp Set.  These flowers are AMAZING and so easy to cut and put together!

The Greetery

The Macro-Made Filler Dies are new to this release as well.  

The Greetery

I used the Macro-Made For You Die first for the hanger and the pot.  Next, I cut the greenery from the Macro-Made Filler Dies.  I put those together with some liquid adhesive.  Next, I heat embossed the Simple Things sentiment on some vellum and then attached to it one of the Crimped Frame die cuts.  

The Greetery

I popped the vellum frame up on foam tape and then attached the die cut focal point to the front.  So simple and clean!

MFT July Card Kit Release...

Yay!  Its Release day over at MFT.  Their monthly Card Kit is now available for purchase.  I have one last card to share for the countdown.  One more clean and simple with an 80's feel!

MFT July Card Kit

To create this card, I hot foiled, with gold foil, the martini glasses on the white cardstock.  I stamped the Cheers sentiment and then added the striped die cut glasses up on foam tape.  I adhered the white card front to the ink blended, ombre pink card base.  

MFT July Card Kit

Last, I added in some clear drops for a fun little detail.  You can see the gold foiled links just under the martini die cut here....
