MFT Perfect harmonypng wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 2 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 3rd May.

Today the Design Team are featuring three of the new stamp sets that will be released, these include: “Clearly Sentimental About Success”; “Notched Tag Stamp Set” and “Jolinne Perfect Harmony”.

My card uses the new Jolinne Perfect Harmony stamp set. The girl and the rabbit are two separate stamps so you have a choice as to whether you include one or both on your card.

I used two MFT Die-namics on the front of my card these are:

Fred Bear Plays Indians!

MFT IndianBear wm

Hi everyone,

It’s that time again when the MFT Stamps designs team begins showing our MFTeasers in preparation of the new stamps which will be released by MFT Stamps after the release party this coming Tuesday 3rd May.

Today the Design Team are featuring three of the new stamps to be released. These are “ Fred Bear Plays Indian”; “Flapper Doodles – SS Flapper” and “Well Worn Greetings”.

MFT IndianBear2 wm

For my project today I decided to create a 3 D scene. I thought Indian Fred Bear needed a playmate so I also used Fred Bear goes Camping, I stamped the headpiece again on white card and added that to my other bear so they both looked like Indians.

I used a number of MFT Die-namics on this scene, these include:

It’s also time for another MFT Guest Designer Contest. This month Jody Morrow and I are hosting the challenge. Would you like to win over $125 in prizes and be the guest designer for the MFT June release. You will find the details over on the MFT Forum.

This isn’t what I had originally planned for my sample for the challenge, but due to Easter & Anzac Day holidays down here the stamps I was going to use were delayed. So I had to make the theme which is Blue Jeans & Bling …. fit with this project. I had some blue jeans designer paper so I used that to die cut the MFT Die-namics star border on the tepee. And also the clothe & head piece Indian Fred is wearing. For the bling I used rhinestones on the MFT Die-namics Open Zigzag border on the tepee.

Here is a close up of Fred Bear … isn’t he the cutest!!!!!!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!

CCEE1117 Mother's Day wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess …. Cindy Haffner has given us her final challenge for the month.

Cindy challenged us to add a butterfly to our card …. so easy Smile.

I received this sweet image from a friend last month for my birthday, and as butterflies like flowers I decided I would use this image for my card. The stamp is called Milton with Tulips from Wild Rose Studio. With Mother’s Day only a few weeks away I decided to make this a Mother’s Day card …. I always need a few Mother’s Day cards each year. The butterflies were created using MFT Die-namics Butterfly die.

Rebus–“O” Words

Rebus O Words wm

Hi all,

It is time for another rebus swap to share with you all. This month the theme of my rebus is “O” Words …. each rebused word will start with the letter “O”.

If you would like to solve it, why not post a comment to this blog post with your answers. I will let you know what the correct answers are next time I post a rebus card here.

I don’t have any solutions for you this month as last month’s swap was to make a rebus birthday card rather than our normal challenge.How did you go?????

Oh, So Cute!

CCEE1116-SoSweet-wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Cindy Haffner, our challenge hostess for the month has challenge us to use some form of pleating on our cards …. either pleated paper or pleated ribbon.

For my card I used another of the cute Fizzy Moon stamps … these are such adorable stamps that I couldn’t resisted going and getting a few more from my stamp store! I also recently got the new Kaisercraft paper pad for April which was called Lullaby and is a baby theme, that it wasn’t hard to decide to use this cute stamp and make a baby card.

The pleating on my card is along the bottom edge of my card. I pleated some of the paper and used my MFT Die-namics 3/8" Rosette die to create the pleating. Using this die makes pleating sooooooo easy. I just die cut 3 strips which I then joined end to end. Folded along all the score lines and then just changed a few of the folds so I got the pleating I wanted. And attached it to my card. I sewed along the bottom edge of my pleating which helps keep it all neat and tidy.
