Hop, Skip and a Jump....

Stopping in today with a quick creation using the new set called from MFT called Jungle Gym and the new Mini Cloud Edges Stencil.  LOVE.


First, I made a card base with white card stock and then added the sentiment along the bottom in black ink.  Next, I created a card front panel with just some light blue inking for the cloud background.  I took this adorable tree image and did come Copic coloring with these adorable images!  I popped that main image up on foam tape for some dimension.


The MFT release for July is adorable but there is another release coming soon so stay tuned!

Thanks for coming by today!

MFT July Card Kit Release Day...

It's Card Kit Release Day at MFT!  If you haven't stopped in to grab your own card kit, its now available for purchase at the MFT store.  I have one last project to share using one simple image from the sentiment set included in the kit.  

I created this framed art for my craft room.  I LOVE the font of the smile stamp and wanted to showcase it on its own....

I used 3 colors of Distress Oxide inks blended onto this masked cardstock.  After I had the perfect blend, I simply stamped smile on the bottom.

I added fun foam to the back and then mounted it in this white frame from Hobby Lobby.....

Today is day 2 of the MFT Card Kit Countdown.  This adorable kit called All Smiles will be available for purchase tomorrow, Tuesday, July 25th at 8pm CST.  Its a gorgeous kit!

I have a CAS card to share today using the sentiment set included in the kit, the smile die and the Slanted Sentiment Strip die that is a free gift with purchase over $60.

I used "Happiness is Contagious" and covered the background with it.  Next, I added in the slanted strip die.  I cut the smile out of white cardstock and fun foam but before I did that, I did a little ombre ink blending so the sentiment would pop from the card front.

MFT July Card Kit

For this card, I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges to create the popped up panel on the card front. Then I stamps, copic colored and die cut these gorgeous blooms.  I used my Press N Seal technique to arrange the blooms on the card front.  You can check out my original video on how to use Press N Seal by clicking HERE.  

By using the press n seal on the flowers, I was able to pick them all up with the Press n Seal and add glue to the backs.....

....then pressed them down on the card front!  Easy peasy!

Next, I added in the Smile sentiment....I adore the die!  Such a pretty font!  And last, I added in some dew drops on the card front.  

MFT July Card Kit

Because the card needs a coordinating envelope, I embossed this beautiful orange envelope to match!  I have a video on that can click HERE to see it.  :)


Head on over to the MFT blog to see more of the card kit countdown for July.  The kit will be available Tuesday, so stay tuned for another countdown day tomorrow.  

Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Queen and Co Stars....

Hello there!  I'm here with a couple of cards using the Star Shaker Card Kit  from Queen and Company, to make 2 cards.

This first card uses the negatives from the foam front....

Queen and Co

I did a navy wash on watercolor paper and added that to a kraft card base.  Next, I added the stars and removed the the top layer and then used the baby beads to cover each of the adhesive stars.  I added in a simple sentiment die cut to finish of the card.

Next, I used the shaker kit.  I kept them nice and simple by adding in the Tiny Bubbles to fill each star....

Queen and Co

I popped a die cut sentiment up on fun foam to complete the card.  Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!
