Good Friends : MFT - Ellen Hutson Collaboration

October 23, 2017

Today I'm sharing a card that uses the new Good Friends stamp set and Dies. This stamp set & Dies are exclusively designed to Ellen Hutson by MFT as part of their United We Flourish campaign, and they are now available for purchase at Ellen Hutson! It's an adorable pet themed set and I'm sure you'll love it!

I made a spinner card using a cute pup image from the Good Friends stamp set. The clouds are from the Magical Unicorns stamp set. The Sour Apple panel spins, so it looks like the pups are chasing each other. :D

I was inspired by my team mate, Laurie Willison to create this card. She shared an easy and quick way to create a spinner card using the Circle Shaker Pouch and the Merry Christmas Circle Frame Die-namics. I loved her idea so much and had to give it a try! You can see her blog post HERE and her tutorial video HERE

Reach for the Stars - MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge

October 19, 2017

It's time for a Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog. This month's theme is Right This Way - we're challenged to use the directional elements from MFT Blueprints collection.

First I decided to play with the Written in the Stars stamp set and the Shinning Stars Die-namics, and wanted to lead recipient's eyes towards the upside to match with the sentiment. So I decided to use the chevron elements from the Blueprints 32 Die-namics and added a few rectangle elements from the Blueprints 13 & 32 to emphasize the vertical visual line.

To create my background, I lightly stenciled the Abstract pattern with Grout Gray ink using a stencil brush and added some faux gold ink spatters using the Distress Patterns stamp set.

I die cut three "Stars" from After Midnight CS and one from Smooth White CS. I slightly inked the lower one third of the white one with Peach Bellini ink. I stacked and glued them together, the white one was on top and a little bit off-set for a shadow effect.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. Remember you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher by participating the challenge.

MFT Snowflake Splendor Card Kit Release

October 18, 2017

It's time to shop! The new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit is available for purchase now!!

I have one more card to share with you that I made using the new kit.
(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)

I kept the design clean so that my snowflake took the stage.
I made my frames with Smooth White, Sno Cone, and Summer Splash card stock using the stacked die cutting technique. I stamped the top panel with the Balloon Strings Background and heat embossed a sentiment from the Snowfall of Blessings stamp set with Silver embossing powder.

As you see in the photo above, I layered several die cut snowflakes. The Smooth White and Sno Cone snowflakes were cut with the Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and the vellum one was cut with the Snowflake Splendor Die-namics. I added a little bit of Crystal Drops to the center. It's really fun mixing and matching different shapes of snowflakes to create your own snowflakes! :)

Head on over to the MFT blog for more inspiration from the fabulous DT. Don't forget to leave a comment on each of their blogs for your chance to win a prize!

Thank you for stopping by. Happy shopping!!
