Sparkling Peace

Hello there and thank you for stopping by today. Today I am participating in MFTWSC359 (Wednesday Sketch Challenge 359). It's a great way to kickstart your crafting. A sketch provides everything you need to get started! 

My card today features the gorgeous Mesmerizing Mandala Background and Peace Die-namics. I cut the word from Sour Apple Sparkle Card Stock. The background was created with Color Burst in several layers. The mandala was heat embossed.

Multicolor Embossed Mandala

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I grabbed the amazing Mesmerizing Mandala and heat embossed it with 4 different colored powders. Then I cut the panel out with an A2 Stitched Rectangle. I added a piece of vellum over part of it to give an area for the sparkly PEACE to go, then added a stitched ampersand and Joy. I REALLY love how this card turned out. I am really digging soft colors for Christmas cards this year. :) 



I also created another PEACE card with a different technique. This time, I created a color bust background and then used the camouflage technique to cut the word out of the background. I added a few accent snowflakes and crystals to liven up the card. :)

Deer Love

Hello there and thank you for stopping by today. Today I am participating in MFTWSC358 (Wednesday Sketch Challenge 358). It's a great way to kickstart your crafting. A sketch provides everything you need to get started! 

My card today features the super sweet Deer Love Die-namics. I LOVE using this die. It's so fun and creates quick (and cute) cards. I switched out the circle for the deer element in the sketch. I added the large letters from Huge Love and stamped a partial greeting from Essential Sentiments on an Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip.

To a Brrr-fect Friend

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I grabbed the ADORABLE Polar Pals stamp set and Die-namics and created a sweet scene with the polar bear, penguin, and ice plank. The background was sponged and stamped with the simple snowflake. I added a piece of vellum to add a softness in the "water" that the ice plank is floating on.

Cross-Stitch on Kraft

Hello there and thank you for stopping by today. Today is the fourth day of the MFT Release Countdown. Only 2 days until the new release (yay)! Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day. This release is packed full of gorgeous new products.

My card today features the new Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics. I have to say — I LOVE this die! It has been so fun to do something a little different. I can sit and watch TV and stitch away with my pattern, Ott light, and a warm blanket (or puppy to snuggle with). I found it so therapeutic! I think a tag like this just ADDS to the gift itself. I created 3 tags, each with Kraft and white floss. I embellished each tag at the top and bottom, and added a sentiment and ribbon to each one. See the curled hemp? I used a fun trick to get it that way! I taped the end on a metal paper piercer, wrapped it tightly around the barrel of the paper piercer, sprayed it with hairspray, and heated it with my heat gun. Such a cute look! 

You can find these patterns and many more on the MFT Blog under Printable Resources (in the sidebar).

My card today features the new Snow Globe Sentiments, Snow Globe, and Scenic Snow Globe. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE these products. It is SO fun to create adorable snow globes. I used a similar color palette for both and used different layouts. For the snowman card, I created a dimensional scene and skipped the Snow Globe Shaker Pouch. For the house card, I used the amazing Diamond Dust for snow and created a snowy scene.
