MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge

Sunday, May 17, 2015

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I found some time to craft it up with my new MFT goodies! Here's my take on this week's My Favorite Things

Here's a look at this week's sketch.

Here's my card

 My Favorite Things Fluttering Hearts cover up, Circle Stax, Stitched Speech Bubbles, LLD Flamingos, LLD Tickled Pink. Adhesive: Therm-O-Web Sticky Strip Runner, 3D Foam Squares Combo pack.

I just love these Flamingos designed by Laina Lamb. She's so stinkin talented! I loved Kay Miller's card from the release posts and added some white dots to my Flamingo wings like she did using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white. This is by far the best white pen I have found and trust me when I say I have bought them all.

There is still time for you to create with this week's sketch. Find out how here.

Pretty Paintings Card kit by Anna Griffin

Friday, May 15, 2015

Hello friends, I wanted to share a few cards I created using Anna Griffin's Pretty Paintings card kit.

 I love Anna's card kits. I always know they will be loaded with gorgeous layers, flowers and sentiments.

Here's a few I put together using the kit for it's HSN debut back in March.

You can fussy cut the inserts and add foam dots to accent.

They key to beautiful cards is layering. How many layers can you spot on this card?

This is my favorite of the bunch.

I put all of these together in a snap! I know Anna has another show coming up in July on HSN so keep an eye out for her next card kit. 

Trust me when I say you will love putting it together!

I'll be sharing the Playful Pieces cards I made for the May HSN show next week.

Have a creative day!


Butterfly love

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Hello friends!
 I'm sharing some lovely cards I created with Anna Griffins newest dies. As soon as I took theses butterfly dies out of the package I was in love!

Purple and Yellow is a perfect combo. I love to double up the same die with 3D foam squares.

For this card I used a card base from Anna's Cricut Cartridge and die cut the cardstock for the butterflies to rest on. It's easy to coordinate other embellishments like Anna's foil flourishes.

For this card I embossed the background paper and place the butterfly dies over with 3D foam squares by Therm-O-Web.

I mixed some of the Juliet papers to create this card. I love keeping card designs monochromatic. 

For this last card I used one of Anna's die cut images from her Cricut library and then layered the butterflies and flowers around the die.

Adhesive: Therm-O-Web Sticky Strip Runner3D Foam Squares Combo pack.

Shakers Gonna Shake Week at MFT

Friday, April 17, 2015

Its been a cool week over at the My Favorite Things Blog. All this week the design team has been featuring shaker cards. I'll admit, I bought the stuff to make them, created one for a magazine call and that was the end of my shaker cards. I did not get the same result with the double sided tape I chose by die cutting it so I gave up.

Well I was so inspired but the video Kimberly Crawford made and the variety of cards the team was making that I pulled out my shaker stash and go creative. I used the Color Challenge colors for my shaker card.

I didn't have any dies to create shaker cards from MFT so I used the PTI Shaker Shapes Star die. I filled it with little star bits and clear micro beads.

Supplies: Stamp set MFT LLD Totally Happy and MFT cardstock: Summer Splash, Sour Apple, Nightshift blue. Ink:Sour Apple

I will definitely be creating more of these!

Have a creative day.

A Rock'n Birthday Card

Friday, April 3, 2015

Hello there friends! 
I wanted to share a fun way to use Therm-O-Web's iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive™ sheets.
Last month for my Birthday I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim and visited the Elizabeth crafts booth. I loved the stickers and her microfine glitter so I picked up some to create with.


 I really enjoy creating cards with the peel off stickers. When you sprinkle the Silk Microfine Glitter onto a sheet of Easy-Cut Adhesive it creates a full sheet of glittery background that you can then layer the peel off sticker on and color with Markers. The result is really stunning. 

I did get a little glitter residue on my Copic markers but nothing that wasn't easy to get off.


Once I applied the sticker, I cut around the outside of the oval frame and saved the left over glittered sheet for another project.  Then I used the Sticky Strip runner to adhere the cardstock to my card base.


Then I used Therm-O-Web 3D Foam Squares to adhere the image to the middle of my card.


I finished the card with some fussy cut flowers from Heartfelt Creations. I adhered the bling to the center of the stamped flowers using medium Zots. Finally I adhered them to the card using the 3D Foam squares.

Here's a full image of the finished card.

I hope I have inspired you to give our iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive™ sheets a try!

Have a creative day.
