The Greetery Reveal Day 4...


Hello! We are on day 4 of the Greetery Reveals.  Are you loving what you are seeing so far?  Every single set is just amazing and so much fun to work with.  We have just a few left to share today.  


The Greetery

This first card uses the set called Cozy Cup.  The images are so easy to use and stamp to create this amazing little coffee scene.

The Greetery

I used the impression die from the center of the coaster to emboss the background of the card.  I just love all the details put into this set.

The Greetery

I created another card with Cozy Cup....

The Greetery

The coaster die is FABULOUS!  I love how it makes a big statement for a clean and simple card.

The Greetery

I used one of the curved sentiments on the bottom of the card.  I adhered the sentiment to a block in a straight line and stamped it in brown ink.


The Greetery

The Greetery Blog will have lots more to see, as well as, the all the details about Release day.

Thanks so much for hanging out with me this week.  Hope you have a great day!

Wednesday MFT Sketch Challenge....



Are you ready for another MFT sketch challenge?  I love this one.  But, I changed it up a tad....which I always love doing!

First up, here is my card....


MFT Wednesday Sketch

I added in the rainbow on the card base.  Next, I used Blueprints 27 to cut the 3 squares.  

MFT Wednesday Sketch

I popped the squares up on fun foam and then added in the Stitched Alphabet "HEY".  Super simple card for sure. 

MFT Wednesday Sketch

Here is this week's sketch....except upside down!  I love sketches to get your creativity going and then your creative license can take it anywhere you want to go.  Even upside down!  :)

The Greetery Reveal Day 3...


Hi friends! Today is Day 3 of the August Greetery Reveal.  Everything you've seen so far this week will be available on Friday for purchase.

I have several new products to share today.  This first card showcases the new set called Bottled Up.

The Greetery

The set includes 2 of the most amazing bottles, each with 3 steps.  The shading steps add the most amazing detail.  I stamped the bottles and overlapped the edges for a fun stacked look.

The Greetery

I stamped a sentiment from Comforting Commands in black ink and then added in some clear drops for a little extra detail.

The Greetery

On this next card, I used several new products.  Bottled Up, Budding Beauties: Autumn. and Mason Jar Filler Stencils.

The Greetery

First, I used the Wheat Mason Jar Filler Stencils for a subtle background.  Then I stamped another Comforting Commands on the front.  

The Greetery

I stamped and die cut one of the new bottles and then added in the berry stem from Budding Beauties: Autumn.  

The Greetery

MFT August Card Kit Release...

Its Kit Release Day at MFT!  The Say It in a Starburst Card Kit is now available over at the MFT Shop.  I have one last project today using the MFT Wine Tag and the Starburst Die from the kit.

MFT Card Kit

This was SUPER easy to make and packs a punch for a last minute gift tag.  I die cut the Wine Tag Die-namics in white card stock.  Next, I die cut the Starburst Die in Gold Sparkle card stock.  I used a Stitched Circle Inside and Out Die to create the focal point.

MFT Card Kit

I stacked the 2 starburst together using Foam Tape and then added them to the wine tag.  I used the Celebreate sentiment from the kit set and heat embossed it on black card stock and then cut it out with the banner die included in the kit.  I added that to the front of the gold sparkle starburst to finish off the tag.  Add this to a bottle of wine and you have the perfect gift!

MFT Card Kit

The MFT blog will have lots more inspiration for this months kit.  Stop by over there to check it out!

Hope you have a great day!

The Greetery Reveal Day 2...


Welcome back, friends!  Today we are showcasing another round of stamps and dies for the August Release over at the Greetery.  Today's stamps are Bountiful Wreath stamps & dies and Harvest Home stamps & dies.

This first card is super clean and simple using the new Bountiful Wreath Stamps....

The Greetery

First, I stamped the wreath and all its layers.  I wanted it to have a little more detail so I went in with Copics and added in shading all around. 

The Greetery

I cut the wreath in heal and added it to the bottom of the card with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment in the middle.  To add a little extra detail, I corner rounded the top corners of the card.

The Greetery

The next card features Harvest Home....

IMG_734The Greetery 2

Keeping with the clean and simple theme of this post, I kept the image all to the leaf dies that coordinate with the Harvest Home stamp set.  I die cut the leaf in 2 different colors of card stock and then added the strips from the stamp set. 

The Greetery

First, I stamped the starry sky on the card base.  Next, I stamped the barn and windmill and then die cut those pieces and tucked them into the leaf.  The top part of the leaf is glued to the card base and the bottom part of the leaf is popped up on foam tape so I could tuck the barn down inside.  I finished the card off with the give thanks sentiment.

Spellbinders 2019 Holiday Blog Hop...


Hello Spellbinder Fans!  Today is a super fun day for all things Spellbinders and all things Holiday!  The hop is on today with tons of inspiration and some prizes!  Keep scrolling to see 2 projects, the giveaway details and a full list of stops on today's hop.  

_____________________________________


CARDS

One of the new die sets from Spellbinders is called Shapeabilites Joy Etched Dies.  I just love this die and how much fun it is to put together.


Spellbinders

To create this card, I first cut the large die with green card stock.  Next, I layered up the holly, leaves, poinsettia and holly berries with different colors of green and red glitter.

Spellbinders

I also cut the JOY in red glitter and again in fun foam to pop up the sentiment.  Using liquid glue, I added in all the details and leaves to create this colorful Christmas sentiment.  I attached the die cut to a white scored card base to finish it off. 

Spellbinders

The next card showcases the Holiday Sentiments Hot Foil Glimmer Plates....

Spellbinders

I used Gold Foil and foiled up 3 of the sentiments on red and green card stock.  Next, I used the strip die that comes with the sentiments to cut out 3 sentiments.


Spellbinders

I popped up the three strips with foam tape so they just pop off the card.  Last, I grasped the Santa D-Lites Dies to make this adorable face.  He fits right on those sentiments for a fun clean and simple card.
