Good Times & Great Friends

C4C130 GoodTimes wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 4 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 April.

Today the Design Team are featuring the Let’s Toast Die-namics and Stamp set.

It is also time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. I finish of the month hosting the challenges with a sketch challenge.

I decided to focus on one of the sentiments from the Let’s Toast Stamp set for my card today. I added two glasses from the Die-namics Let’s Toast die. The sentiment is stamped using the Die-namics Circle Stax 1 set and then layered onto the Die-namics Dizzy Doily DUO. The panel under the sentiment panel is been trimmed using the new Die-namics Pinking Edge die.

Clearly Sentimental

MFT Anniversaries wm

Hi everyone,

Welcome to day 3 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 April.

Today the Design Team are featuring two of the new stamp sets that will be released, these are Big Greetings and Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries (which will be April’s Triple Scoop set).

For my card today I used the Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries stamp set, isn’t that sentiment beautiful!!!!!! I used the new Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax for my sentiment, have I told you this is the most versatile die set! The circle was created using the Die-namics Circle Stax 1 and Die-namics Circle Stax 2. I added a flower using the Die-namics Botanical Beauty & Die-namics Leafy Flourish.

Hi-Ya!

MFT KungFuFred 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 April.

Today the Design Team are featuring 2 stamps sets. I am sharing with you a card I created using the Kung Fu Fred stamp set. Fred is such a multi talented bear don’t you think Winking smile

I used the Die-namics Oval STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Oval STAX Set 2 to cut out my Kung Fu Fred image. The sentiment and the panel on the left side of my card were both created using the new Die-namics Fish Tail Flags Stax, this die set has soooo many uses. Underneath these layers you can also see the border I created using the Die-namics Chevron Stripes, another awesome die set. The “hi-ya” sentiment is stamped onto the Die-namics Chat Bubbles which has been trimmed down by putting it back into the die a little further down once you have cut it the first time. Love how you can shorten many of these die-namics this way.

New Home!

CCEE1213 House wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our March challenge hostess Joanne Grzelak finishes off the month with another fun challenge!

Our challenge is to create a New Home/Apartment Card.

CCEE1213 House2 wm

As you can see I didn’t make a card but decided to use another of the Jenigami Slice Form SVG files I purchased from Jenni Bean Crafts. I had such fun creating this project.

CCEE1213 House4 wm

After cutting my pieces using my Sizzix Eclips I embossed the outside walls using the Couture Creations Fretboard Embossing Folder. I also created some windows to add over the window openings, and added green card along the base so it looked like grass.

CCEE1213 House3 wm

To cover the New Home part of the challenge I added the “New Home” sentiment from Waltzing Mouse Stamps onto MFT Die-namics Mini Pennant Die & Die-namics Mini Wavy Pennants Die.

I also used MFT Die-namics Simply Scallops Border die to add the shingles to the roof.

CCEE1213 House5 wm

Here is a view of my house from the back.

CCEE1213 House6 wm

And finally one last picture of my house project, this time folded down flat so it can be mailed.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Stamps: Cottage Home – Waltzing Mouse Stamps
