Surf’s Up!

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Joanne Grzelak continues to issue the challenges.

Joanne say’s that in the Northern Hemisphere they are in the midst of winter, so let’s think HOT. Create a card that is ‘hot’ in temperature, theme, or taste. Could be a sun, a hot pepper, a summer scene, a romance theme…..the variations are endless.

Well it isn’t hard to think hot when you are living in the Southern Hemisphere especially if you live in Australia like I do. We are in the middle of summer and have just recently had a heatwave through the country, thank goodness for air conditioners Smile.

For my card today I decided to go with the summer/beach theme and I used the Penny Black Fun in the Sun stamp set which I have had for over a year and it has been sitting in my please use me box all that time LOL. It has now finally been inked I am pleased to say.

CCEE1305 Surfs Up5 wm

As you can see I have created another pop up card using the Sizzix Pop N Cuts dies, this one uses the base die and then the Pop N Cuts Insert Label 3D. I am having so much fun creating these pop up cards. I still have a few I haven’t used as yet, but I plan to fix that very soon Smile.

MFTeaser Day 2

MFT LibraryCard wm

Hi everyone,
Welcome to 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 Monday 4th February.

Today the Design Team are featuring two of the new stamp sets from designer Laina Lamb. The two stamp sets being featured are:

  • Laina Lamb Designs Journal It – Library Card
  • Laina Lamb Designs Document It – Right This Way

MFT LibraryCard1 wm

For my card today I combined both the Laina Lamb Designs Journal It – Library Card stamp set and the Laina Lamb Designs Document It - Right This Way stamp set. The library card stamp is another of the stamps that will work with the Die-namics LLD Insert It - 3x4 Insert. The library card is sitting in a pocket which was created using the new Die-namics Insert It – 3 x 4 Pocket

The sentiment on the tab on the top of the pocket is Laina Lamb Designs Document It - Right This Way stamp set and there is a tab this same shape in the Die-namics LLD Accent It - Labels and Tabs set.

I have used Kraft Ink, Wild Cherry Ink and Black Licorice Ink on my card. I also used Red Hot card for the base of the card. To  finish of the front of my card I added a Kraft button and hemp cord.

MFT LibraryCard1b wm

Here is a close up of the library card. The “You + Me” sentiment under the borrowers name on the library card is from the LLD Document It - Off the Chart released last month.

MFT LibraryCard2 wm

Here is the inside of my card. I used the sentiments from Laina Lamb Designs Journal It – Library Card. The word “Chapter” has been stamped onto one of the labels from the Die-namics LLD Accent It - Labels and Tabs set.

Here are the new products I used on my card today:
