another card with the mft everything wonderful card kit

The MFT Stamps fantastic Everything Wonderful card kit is available now and I highly recommend it! I've been having so much fun with the sweet, little, stitchable flowers (even though I haven't stitched any yet, LOL)!

The flowers are just so pretty and I was inspired to create a "flower wall" for my card. You know the cool backdrops people have at weddings? Something like this (borrowed from Pinterest)...

To make my card, I die bunches of flowers from white cardstock and colored them with Distress Oxide inks & blending tools.

Then I adhered them to a square of cardstock, layering them and letting them hang off the edges a bit.

I adhered the square to a folded card, added a stamped sentiment from the Friends Like Us and a little faux splatter.
It's a little messy but I love it and now I really want a flower wall at my next celebration!

everything wonderful card kit

I LOVE using flowers in my card designs so I'm really excited about the latest MFT Stamps card kit, Everything Wonderful! Want a little peek?

These gorgeous flower dies are perfect for stitching but the details are so pretty even without it! I feel like the pics aren't doing the die cuts justice!

I cut the flowers from the Floral Adornments & Framing Foliage from white cardstock and adhered them to a piece of kraft.

Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the So Very Sorry For Your Loss on a folded white card and adhered the kraft panel above it.

simple monochromatic scene card with mft stamps

The MFT Stamps May 2023 release is available now but before you run off to shop I've got a simple monochromatic scene card to share with you!

The I'm Glad We Fit In is such a sweet set! I just love the all the critters! And I'm excited to stamp, die cut all color all the pieces for a detailed scene card but in the meantime, I made this easy monochromatic background.

I stamped the tree twice and the sun with Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina ink on Sno Cone cardstock. They look so great together!

Then I stamped the cloud and the car of critters. After die cutting the car, I colored with Copics.

I foam mounted the car & clouds on the background and ta-da! I love how it turned out.

mft may countdown day 1

It's almost time for the MFT Stamps May release, it's almost here!!! First there are a few more goodies to reveal and I've got a card to share too!

The new I'm Glad We Fit In stamp set is soooo cute! And I love critter stamp sets but I generally avoid making scene cards because they can feel too hard. LOL! 

So instead I make cards like this, a color blocked card with a few scene elements.

I masked a piece of Sno Cone cardstock and blended it with Distress Oxide with Salvaged Patina. These colors go together so well!

Then I stamped, die cut and colored a flying bunny from the I'm Glad We Fit In set. I added a few clouds too and a sentiment from the Pop-Up Phrases too. Sweet & simple!

Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a minute to see the rest of the May release and mark your calendars for tomorrow's release!

mft may countdown day 2

I love making shaker cards and word shakers might be my absolute favorite!!! So when I saw the new Iconic Grad Die-namics set, I had no choice but to make this card!

"Grad" just makes a perfect shaker window!

To make the background for the shaker window, I did a little ink blending and then spread Glossy Accents over the top. While the Glossy Accents was still wet, I added a few star sequins so there will always be a little sparkle in the shaker window.

Catch more MFT Stamps May reveal on the MFT blog!

Have a great day!

mft may countdown day 3

The countdown to the MFT Stamps May 2023 release continues today with sweet little birds and some no-line coloring!

No-line coloring is a technique I love but struggle with. To practice I like to use small images and there is something just perfect about Stacey Yacula's sets! The new Peaceful Birds is no exception!

To keep my focus on coloring the birds, I stamped the birdhouse & sentiment in black on a white card.

Then I stamped the birds in the lightest tan ink, die cut them and colored them with Copic markers.

I love how they turned out!

Thanks for stopping by! You can find more peeks at the MFT May release on their blog!

Have a great day!

easy masking + mft may countdown day 4

We're counting down the days until the next MFT release and today I'm excited to share a clean & simple card that uses a little easy masking and one of my favorite new sets!

How cute are these Little Rascals?! I couldn't wait to get coloring so I decided to create a really clean & simple card.

I stamped the top racoon first and then created a mask by stamping him again on a post-it note, cutting it out with scissors and covering the stamped image on my card.

Then when I stamped the second racoon and removed the mask, it looked like the top racoon was balancing on his buddy's head.

After that I had a blast coloring!

die cut shaker bits + mft may countdown day 5

I adore shaker cards and I'm always on the lookout for die cuts that might make cute shaker windows or cute shaker bits...

As we countdown to the next MFT Stamps release, I might have found a new favorite die for sweet little shaker bits...Patio Plants!

Not only does the set have the sweetest tiny flower that makes great shaker bits, it has multiple plant & planter options. It's so fun!

For this card I paired a circle shaker window with the planter box and bushes. And the stamped sentiment is from the Outdoor Oasis Sentiments set.

Have a great day!

I also added a few music notes on the birdhouse with the Just A Note set and a little faux black splatter (with a pen) on both cards. What do you think?
