MFT Release Replay...

The My Favorite Things release was last week, so the design team is getting together today to share another creation.  The December release of stamps and dies was so much fun!  My favorite die this month is the Our Town die.  I used it to create this CAS card....

MFT December Release Replay

This one was super fun to make.  I masked off each house and did a little ink blending.  Then I added it to the card front with fun foam.  Then I added that card front to the card base with more fun foam, after I added some striped washi to the bottom edge.  Last, I found a little hello in another stamp set and added it in.

Clean and Simples....Queen and Co.

Hey there!  I'ms stopping in here with a couple of quick and simple card using Queen and Company supplies.  I love having a stash of Queen goodies on hand to add to any card.

For this first card, I used the Polaroid Foam Front Die.  The great thing about these dies, is they coordinate perfectly with the foam front boxes or in this case, work great as a card front without the shaker box.
 
Queen and Co

I die cut the polaroid out of white cardstock and then popped it up on foam tape.  I added my 2 little pandas and then a sentiment from Paper Smooches.  I added 2 of the Green Bling Flowers to add a little pop of color.  Easy peasy!

Queen and Co

This card was another easy one to create.  For this card, I used the Hearts Foam Front Die with the Hearts Foam Front underneath.  Those foam fronts work so perfectly for shaker cards but they add great dimension, just by themselves, to any card front. 

Queen and Co

I added the foam front to a red card base so those hearts would pop from the white front.  I added the "miss you" die cut from the Special Word Dies Assortment 1 set.  I die cut it from black cardstock and black fun foam and stacked them up for some dimension.  Next, I added a glittery button from the Red Button Bouqet II set.  This is a great package of buttons to add to your collection.  There are so many different styles all in one pack!  I tied a little white twine through the button to finish this card off. 

Queen and Co

So glad you stopped in today!  Hope you have a great week!

MFT Product Launch...

It's Release night at MFT!  The stamps and dies this month are as adorable as ever!  Tonight I have one last card to share using the new Stitched Tag Corner STAX and the Painted Flowers stamp set...

MFT December Release

First, I embossed the Stitched Tag-Corner Rectangle into the card base.  I masked it off and added the grass with the Drifts and Hills stencil and then added clouds with the Cloud Stencil.  Next, I stamped and die cut the flowers and then stamped the stems on the card base.  I die cut the smile sentiment and popped it up on fun foam.  Last, I added in some Nuvo drops to the sentiment for some sparkle.  

MFT December Release

Go check out the new release and do some shopping over at the MFT Store.  And check out what the rest of the DT has for us today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

MFT Countdown Day 1....

Today is the last day of the MFT December Countdown.  The entire release of new stamps and dies will be available tonight, Tuesday, December 5th at 8pm CST.  Are you so excited?

Today's card showcases the new set More Rustic Wildflowers.  I love this set because it is so easy to stamp and, of course, die cut.  Those open dies give the perfect cut every time!

Here is my CAS card...

MFT December 2017

I love to die cut several groups of die cuts and then stamp a bunch of flowers at once.  Then do a little arranging.  I cut the scalloped card front from Blueprints 27.  I found this beautiful sentiment from Handwritten Happiness and then built the arrangement around it.  I kept this card simple to let those flowers shine!

The MFT Blog will have lots more to see today.  Head on over there and check out the last day of sneak peeks. Thanks so much for stopping in today!
