MFT October Card Kit–Snowflake Splendor, Countdown Day Two


Hi, all! So, what do you think of this month’s kit? Amazing, right? The Design Team had some samples for you yesterday and there’s more to come today so be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. Release is tonight at 9pm Eastern, so make a note!


I decided to get out my Flop Card – Circle Die-namics for this card—Layered Snowflakes Die-namics fit perfectly in the circle and the flop card design lends itself to lots of other design possibilities. I started by stamping some images from Snowflake Splendor on a Kraft card stock base with Versamark then cut/scored with Flop Card – Circle Die-namics and added some Kraft Collection – Solid Stripes patterned paper to the inside.


I created my snowflake using Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and, bottom to top, Primitive White card stock, Tropical Teal card stock, some corrugated paper (remember that?), Sno Cone card stock, and more Primitive White. I sponged the edges of all with Kraft dye ink and adhered them with hot glue to add some dimension. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and heat embossed with off white embossing powder. I popped it up on foam mounting tape and added a circle of Primitive White on the inside for signing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tonight for Release!

Snowflake Splendor–MFT’s October Card Kit Countdown, Day One


Hey everyone! It’s time for October’s MFT Card Kit. Snowflake Splendor is SNOW gorgeous!!! It will be available for purchase tomorrow night, October 17th, at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and more samples from the MFT Design Team.


Cobalt blue is one of my very favorite colors so I thought to play the white snowflakes off of a cobalt blue watercolor wash background. Than was done with Peerless Watercolors, then I splattered some watered-down white craft pain all over for a snow flurry. Two reasons for this: I think it adds to the look and I also knew with that much embossing I’d get a good bit of stray white dots. They are perfectly camouflaged with my splatters :) I cut it with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 and also with Peace Die-namics, the mid-month Free with $60 die. Next I stamped all around the die cut with snowflakes from Snowflake Splendor stamp set using Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.


Next I added some Silver Sparkle card stock to the back of the die cut with foam mounting tape and then adhered the whole thing to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. To finish off, I added a dot of Nuvo Crystal Drops – Silver Lining Metallic to the center of each snowflake. Once I got the hang of them, I’ve become addicted to Nuvo drops!!

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!

A Very Crafty Holiday at My Favorite Things—Stocking Stuffers


Hi, everyone! I’m excited to be participating in MFT’s A Very Crafty Holiday week-long event today! I have three super cute and fun-to-make stocking stuffers to share with you so I hope you’ll stop by the MFT Blog and join in the creative fun! Did I mention there are prizes? Yep, there are! See you there!


Grateful–MFT Color Challenge #79


Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Safety Orange, Pineapple, Blue Yonder, Blueberry. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


It’s amazing how many blue leaves you can find in Autumnal art if you look for it ;-) So I was inspired to do another card with watercolored leaves since I had so much fun with the last one I did.


I cut Falling Leaves Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor Paper, colored them with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, swiped the edges with Delicata Gold ink and set them aside. I stamped Grateful Stamp Set on Sweet Tooth card stock with Delicata Gold ink, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I arranged my leaves, adhered them, and added dew drops with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. I’m beginning to get rather addicted to these drops ;-)

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
