MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #351

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with: 





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I created a scene on Kraft cardstock using the Bitty Bears set. For the snowy hill, I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics. The cloud is from the Puffy Clouds die set. I die cut the panel from the Inside & OutStitched Rounded Rectangles. The cute snowboarding Santa bear is a “new” character I created from two bears. I masked the cupcake and added a Santa hat. I then drew the snowboard using a black marker. He looks so cool!

Here is the sketch #351 for this week’s challenge:

TAWS – Last chance to get some leftover stamp sets!

Do you remember…. A few years ago, I was member of the TAWS (The Alley Way Stamps) design team. They sadly closed their store in January 2016 but now Ali (the owner and illustrator) sells some leftover stamps. 




If you want to see the stamps you can purchase or for more information, please check the YouTube video HERE or the visit the TAWS Facebook page HERE



Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by…

MFT September Product Launch

Hi everyone! Yay! It’s time for the My Favorite Things September 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 Modern Trees stamp set: 





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I created a love-themed winter card. I first masked the moon and the snowy hill using masking paper. I then sponged the background with Distress inks. I removed the masking paper and I stamped the trees in Black Licorice dye ink. I stamped the shadow using the third generation stamping and I went over some areas using a paintbrush and black Distress ink. To create the falling snow effect, I splattered white ink over the background. I die cut the panel with a square die from the Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX Die-namics. I adhered the scene to a top-folded card base made from After Midnight cardstock using foam pads for more dimension. To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Haunting set in Black Licorice dye ink and I added a tiny red heart.

Hi everyone! Today is the last day of the My Favorite Things September 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 September 5th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: September 6th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Double the Smiles die set and the All Smiles stamp set: 





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I created a rainbow background using the embossing resist technique. I heat embossed the Wavy Coloring Book stamp with white embossing powder. I then sponged the background with Distress inks. I die cut the panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangles STAX Die-namics. I decided to use the camouflaging die-cutting technique for the word SMILE. I die cut the panel using the SMILE from the Double the Smiles die set. I then die cut the SMILE a second time from foam. I adhered the rainbow panel with tape to a top-folded card base made from Tropical Teal cardstock. Next, I inlaid the foam SMILE and the rainbow SMILE on top. I stamped the sentiment "Happiness is contagious" in black dye ink onto white cardstock, cut it out to create a label and adhered it on top of the SMILE with foam pads for more dimension.

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I went for a clean and simple design using the Pop-Up Alphabet Die-namics as a cover plate. I die cut only the "HI" from rainbow paper and I adhered it to the other with glue. The patterned paper is from the Party Patterns paper pack.
