mft what's cookin' card kit

The MFT Stamps What's Cookin' card kit just hit the shop and it's adorable!

Yesterday I shared a treat tag I made with the delightfully retro oven from the Under the Hood set (see that HERE) and today I made a birthday card!

I die cut mixers, spoons, bowls, whisks and a few more things all from white cardstock. I colored some with Distress Oxide inks and some with Copic markers.

Then I adhered them to a card front in an arch shape (I used a roll of tape as a guide), with a sentiment stamped at the bottom.

I highly recommend heading over to the MFT blog to see more of the gorgeous cards my teammates have made!

something fun is cookin' at mft

MFT stamps is cooking up something really fun for tomorrow, a new card kit! Want to see a little sneak peek? 

Isn't that the cutest little oven?!! I had so much fun putting it together! I die cut it from Sno Cone cardstock and then inked the door & drawer with Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina (I love this combo). I die cut the knobs & bits from silver cardstock.

Then I paired it with the What's Cookin'? stamps and the Frosted Alphabet. I used the base layer of the alphabet, colored it like a cookie and then added chocolate chips from the Milk and Cookies set.

The cookie in the oven is just a circle with more of the chocolate chip die cuts.

Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a chance for more info about the What's Cookin' card kit and see more inspiration!

mft merry moose

Have you seen the cuteness of the MFT Merry Moose stamp set? It's completely adorable and perfect for winter!

I'm always short on birthday cards so it seemed like perfect sentiment from the set to start with.

I stamped, die cut and colored the little skiing moose.

I "borrowed" the snowy slope stamp from Yeti or Not set and stamped it on my card front. I love that even though the styles of the sets are different, I can still mix and match.

I left the snowy slope black & white because I love having a pop of color come from the critter. And then I stamped the sentiment under the slope.

mft warm winter hugs + distress ink watercolor

There's always something so beautiful & perfect about Stacey Yacula's designs and the Warm Winter Hugs set is no exception!

And since they are so amazing, I often feel intimidated. Where do I start? How should I color them? So they sit uninked on my desk and that's no good!

I finally decided to take a really simple technique and just go for it!

I stamped the penguin & turtle image in Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch and then swiped the ink pad on an acrylic block. I sprayed my block with a little clean water and used it as my palette to watercolor my critters.

I kept my painting really simple and just enjoyed it!

I stamped the pond but left a few parts uninked so there wouldn't be any harsh lines across my critters. And then painted it.

Finally I added a sentiment across the bottom and a few inky splatters.

The latest sets from MFT Stamps are just non-stop cuteness, including North Pole Pals!

After seeing the sentiment from the set "a waddle and a wave...", I had to pair it with my favorite A Very Big Hi!

mft snow happy

Have you seen the MFT Snow Happy set? It's so adorable!!!

I love snowmen and I had so much fun coloring some the other night that I had to make a slimline card to fit them all, LOL!

Three circle windows is my go-to slimline design so I die cut three circles from a 3.5x8.5 cardstock panel. On the card front I ink blended Salvaged Patina and Tumbled Glass and spread a little glitter glue over it.

I stamped the sentiment on the die cut panel and then foam mounted it to the dried card.

I tucked the little snowmen (and one snowflake from the Stackable Snowflakes) into the windows.
