Penny Black Simplicity – Celebrate your day

Hello everyone! Today, I have a cute card up on the Penny Black Simplicity at its best blog. This time, I decided to feature the beautiful Wintertime Cheers set (#30-386) but I didn’t create a winter card. Here is a sneak peek:




If you would like to see the whole card and read the step-by-step instructions, head over to the Penny Black Simplicity blog.

My Favorite Things – January Release Replay

Hi everyone! It’s time for the January My Favorite Things release replay! Today, the MFT design team is taking a fresh look at the most recent release.

My project is a card featuring the newest Otterly Love You stamp set from Birdie Brown:





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. For the background, I used the ink smooching technique with Distress inks (for this technique, check a video tutorial that I made a few months ago HERE). I colored the otter as well as the fishes with Copic markers and fussy cut them with precision scissors. I fixed them the background with foam pads. I grounded the card with a strip of patterned paper from the Rainbow Stripes paper pack.

MFT January Product Launch

Hi everyone! Yay! It’s time for the My Favorite Things January product launch! Today, you can see all new products and they are available right now on the MFT online store!


Here is my card featuring the newest I’m Owl Yours stamp and die sets: 




Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. I substituted the U from HUGS and replaced it with the cute owl that I colored with Copic markers and die-cut with the coordinating die. Isn’t that fun, that it works so perfectly? The sentment is from the I’m Owl Yours set too. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on the card base that I created with Kraft cardstock. I die cut the HUGS from Smooth White and Chocolate Brown cardstock, glued them together offset and fixed them to the card base with foam pads for more dimension.

MFT January Release Countdown Day 1

Hi everyone! Today is the last day of the My Favorite Things January release countdown. This release is absolutely fabulous! The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store in a few hours!!! Yay!!!

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on January 10th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: January 11th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Floral Fantasy Background






Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. I chose to go for red and gold and I must say that it looks amazing in real life (it was a bit hard to take a good picture from the shiny embossing). It gives the card an oriental style and it looks like fabric. I created a top-folded card base from Electric Red cardstock and inked the background with Versamark. I stamped the background to the card front and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I rounded the bottom corners. I die cut the heart from the Flop Card – Heart Die-namics set as well as the word "thanks" from the Thanks & Hello Die-namics set from the same Electric Red cardstock. I heat embossed the thanks with gold embossing powder. To finish off my card, I fixed the heart and the thanks with foam pads for more dimension. This background is super versatile.

MFT January Release Countdown Day 2

Hi everyone! Today is the fourth day of the My Favorite Things January release countdown. This release is packed with amazing new products! Isn’t it?

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on January 10th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: January 11th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Well-Connected Alphabet set: 





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. I decided to embellish an envelope to feature this fabulous stamp set. The alpha is just so perfect to write the recipient’s name on the envelope. It looks like handmade calligraphy! I stamped the letters with Black Licorice Premium dye ink. I printed out the address below the name (but you can write it by hand too) and left everything dry a little bit. I created some stencils with the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 1 and 2. I used the negative spaces only. I then sponged the circles with MFT dye inks using a blending tool: Cherry Crisp, Orange Zest, Daffodil, Sour Apple, Field Day, Lush Lagoon, Ripe Raspberry and Boysenberry. I also sponged some Distress inks.
