MFT & Chibitronics Collaboration

Hi everyone! Yesterday and today, MFT and Chibitronics are partnering together to share some more inspiration and fun projects using the Chibi Lights Circuits.  

Here is what I came up with: 






Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. I went for a galaxy background that I created using watercolors and Distress inks. The Star word die was die cut from Silver Sparkle cardstock (I can’t say enough how fun this cardstock is) using the Shining Stars die set. The white heat embossed sentiment is from the Written in the Stars stamp set. I die cut the square panel using the Inside & Out Stitched Square Die-namics set. The Pull label and the card base were made with Black Licorice cardstock. The Pull word is from the Interactive Labels stamp set and was white heat embossed too. To light up my card and create the circuits, I used the Chibi Lights Starter Kit as well as the Tropical LED Chibi Circuit Stickers Mega Pack.

MFT February Birthday Project Challenge

Hi everyone! Welcome to this month’s Birthday Project Challenge! This time, we are focusing on balloons. This is so fun! I love adding balloons to my cards.

Here is what I came up with: 




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 showcase the cow from the Party Animal set (there are coordinating dies but I cut the image with scissors). I decided to add more balloons to make a bundle. I masked the cow image using masking paper and stamped two more balloons using the single balloon stamp (included in the Party Animal set too). The sky background was sponged with Distress inks and blending tools using the Cloud stencil. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Meant to Bee set (so love this font). I stamped the words onto clouds that I first die cut from white cardstock using the Puffy Clouds Die-namics. To finish off my project, I added a few enamel dots.

Hi everyone! Today is the fourth day of the My FavoriteThings February 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 February 6th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: February 7th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Magical Mandala Die-namics





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I started by die cutting the Magical Mandala from masking paper so that it became a stencil. I then adhered the manadal mask to the front panel of a white top-folded card base. I blended several Distress inks over the mask to get a beautiful rainbow background. Once I was happy with the result, I removed the mandala mask. The sentiment I used is from the newest Gift Card Greetings set. I heat embossed it on Black Licorice cardstock using white embossing powder. I adhered the label using foam squares. To finish off my card, I added three enamel dots.

I heat embossed the notes with clear embossing powder and sponged the center with teal Distress ink. You still can see the clear embossing where I didn't blend color. I die cut the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame and adhered it to the front using foam pads. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Jungle Vibes set on Black Licorice cardstock using white embossing powder. I stamped the tree, grass and monkey, colored them and cut them with scissors but you can get the coordinating dies too. I fixed all images as well as the black sentiment label to the card base using foam pads for more dimension.

Sunny Studio Stamp | Spring Collection 2018

Hi everyone! I’m so happy to guest for Sunny Studio Stamps again this year! Many thanks to Mendi for inviting me. Today, I have two cards for you featuring the newest Spring collection. Here is what I came up with: 




For the first card, I chose to showcase the newest Sparkle word die and the Born To Sparkle stamp set. They can be combined with cute images but also used as stand-alone sentiments on a simple background. They are so versatile! I went for a colorful galaxy background using rainbow colors (as very often lol). I used watercolor paper and Winsor & Newton watercolors. Once it was dry, I splattered white ink over the panel to create the stars. I heat embossed the bigger stars with white embossing powder using the sparkly element stamps from the set. I adhered the panel to a top-folded card base created with black cardstock. I die cut the sparkle word and heat embossed it using golden embossing powder and fixed it to the card front using foam pads. I stamped the sentiment from the Born To Sparkle set to white cardstock, cut it and fixed it to the panel with foam pads too.   




For the second card, I used the Team Player stamp set. I think that this set is AMAZING. I don’t have many sets featuring sports stamps so this is a must-have for me! I wanted to feature the beautiful cup image. I went for a clean and simple design. I created a background using a sunburst stencil (from Wendy Vecchi). I sponged it with black Distress ink and added tiny black and white dots to create a sparkle effect. I stamped, colored and cut the cup. I adhered the image to the stenciled background and added a stamped sentiment from the set.

That’s all for me! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
