MFT Card Kit Release...

It's card kit release night over at MFT!  The A-maze-ing Card Kit is now available to purchase.  Just click HERE to grab one up for yourself.

I have one last very clean and simple card to share.  I love that with these kits, you can make more elaborate cards, or you can make these quick and simple ones...

MFT April Card Kit

This one layer card would be easy to mass produce with any sentiment.  I just stamped the maze in a gray ink and then added in the red heart and black sentiment and done!  I combined it with a purple envelope that is also included in the kit.  Easy peasy!

MFT Card Kit Countdown Day 2....

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT Card Kit Countdown.  This newest kit for April is called A-maze-ing and it really is!  I have another card to share today.  This time, I used one of the plastic mazes on the card, but more for decoration and not an actual maze.

I used a piece of the Dots and Stripes patterned paper for the card base.  Using the Fishtail Flag Frames, (not included in the kit) I added a silver glitter frame down first.  I added in the circle die cut included in the kit and then stamped the maze pattered on the white circle.  I added in the plastic maze on top, but instead of using the maze pouch, I just added in a sentiment.  I used another Fishtail Flag and heat embossed the sentiment to layer on top of the maze.  Last, I added some cardstock strips along the bottom of the card and finished it off with some glossy accented stars.  

MFT April Card Kit

The MFT Blog will have lots more to see so head on over there!  The kit will be available tomorrow, April 18th at 8pm CST.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

MFT Card Kit Countdown....

Ok, friends.  The April Card Kit is almost here and.....wow.  It's SO much fun!

Here is a sneak peak of the A-maze-ing Card Kit for April....

MFT April Card Kit

The kit includes an adorable stamp set, black and white plastic mazes, small silver maze spheres and everything it takes to make the most adorable maze cards.  For this card, I took the maze stamp and stamped it in Versamark on a Blu Raspberry card stock panel.  I added in the red heart onto the white circle die cut, then glued down the plastic maze, added the silver sphere and then the shaker pouch.  It all goes together so well....and looks even better with the matching red envelope....also included in the kit!  :)

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see more sneak peeks for this months card kit.  Stop back by tomorrow for another peek!  Have a great day!

A little washi with a little bling....

Hey there!  I'm stopping in with a couple of cards to share today.  If you are like me, you have a whole drawer full of gorgeous washi!  I am slightly addicted and it is just so much fun to use.  Queen and Company has a bunch of the most beautiful glitter washi's and I love using it on cards. 

For this first card, I used it to make the sentiment pop!


I lined the Pink Striped Glitter Tape on cardstock and then took this Simon Says die and die cut the sentiment, leaving a super fun, glittery sentiment.  I layered it up on the gray card base with vellum, to create a fun look.  I added some white Queen and Company Iridescent Pearls to finish of the card front.  

This next card uses the Foam Front Heart Die....


I die cut the foam front die twice to give a little dimension after lining up the Blue Dot Glitter Tape on the card base.  To finish off this CAS card, I die cut the "hello" 5 times and stacked them up for a 3D sentiment.  Super simple!

That is all for today!  Hope you like my CAS creations!  Stay tuned for more glitter washi creations....have a great day!  :)

The April Release at My Favorite Things is here!  There are so many amazing new stamp sets and dies to add to your collection.  Head on over to the MFT Blog to see everything!

I have a card to share today using the new set called, Up in the Air.


First, I colored up these 3 adorable images, the balloon, the elephant and the heart banner, and then adhered them together.  I used one of the new Stitched Dome Stax, added a few masked clouds in the background and then finished it off with a sentiment.  I added this focal point to the card base.  I used Versamark and stamped the could image to the card base for a little more detail.  Last, I used the Fishtail Flag Frames to add in a rainbow banner along the bottom.

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop....

I am super excited to join Nicole from Right at Home and some crafty friends for a blog hop today.  This blog hop is a celebration for National Craft Month.  Nicole was so sweet to create this stamp set, called Make Something Beautiful,  for a craft weekend we had recently and today we are all here to share!  Head on over to the Right at Home blog for a full blog hop list.  

If you are following along on the hop, my sweet friend, Marcie sent you over.

For today's project I decided to make something other than a card.  I wanted to create a simple, rainbow, watercolor wall art with the adorable paintbrush included in the stamp set....


First off, I heat embossed 7 paintbrushes with white embossing powder.  I used my Lyra Aquacolor Crayons and did some watercoloring with 2 different browns for each paintbrush handle.

Next, I used a rainbow of colors to color each paintbrush tip and then added a little paint puddle above each brush.  Seriously, super simple!  I found a white frame at Hobby Lobby and added the paper to the frame.  I am excited to have this sitting on my shelf to add a pop of color in my craft room!


The next stop on the hop is my friend Amy S.  I know she will have something fabulous to share with us!

Want to win this stamp set?

Head on over to the Right at Home Blog for more details!  So glad you could stop in today!  Hope you have a great day!

MFT March BP Challenge...

Hey there!  It's time for another round of Creative Construction with Blueprints over at MFT.  Here is our challenge for this month....

Dainty, delicate scallops add femininity and softness to your creations. Our collection of Blueprints includes so many scallop options - from panels detailed by a perimeter of scallops, to edge-only dies that allow you to create panels of any size, you’ll find the perfect finishing touch for any project. Join our team this month as they share some of their own scalloped projects.


I used the scalloped from Blueprints 27 and made layers of color just for a fun background for this card.  I colored up a dragon to match and then added in some clouds in the background along with a simple Hello sentiment.  I added in a matching envelope to create this fun card.

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see more of the scalloped cards this month.  So glad you could stop by!

Queen and Co Shaker Cards...

Hey there! I am stopping in today with not 1, not 2....but 4 shakers cards using the amazing foam fronts from Queen and Company.

These first 2 cards use the Balloon Foam Front Shaker Card.....


This first card, I kept super clean and simple.  I added the foam front to the card base, added in some clear diamonds from the Diamonds Primary Toppings. I added 2 hearts that I cut from the Hearts Foam Front Die after adding in a little ink blending.  I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, Handmade From Me, stamp set.


This second card I did a little blending with blue ink on the Balloon Die cut front and the balloons themselves.  The toppings inside the balloons are called Pops.  I added everything to the card front and the topped it off with more heart die cuts and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Easter Greetings


This fun little dragon card uses the Polaroid Foam Front Shaker kit.  I added some Pastel Diamonds in three colors inside the box, as well as an adorable dragon and sentiment from the MFT set called Magical Dragons.  I finished off the card front with some Green Polka Dot washi and yellow twine.

Queen and Company Shaker Card

This last card was made using the Hearts Foam Front kit.  I did some ink blending on the card front die cut.  I filled each heart on the shaker card with sliver pearls from the Neutral Pearlies toppings set.    I added the "thanks" sentiment using a Simon Says Thanks Die.

If you haven't had a chance to try one of these amazing Foam Front Shaker cards, go grab one.  They are so much fun!

So glad you stopped in today!  Have a great day!

It's Card Kit Release time over at MFT!  This months kit, Doodled Blooms, is so adorable!  I have one card left to share that will be included in my little gift set....

MFT March 2017 Card Kit

I used a sentiment and stamped it repeatedly at an angle that I cut with Blueprints 18.  I added a black strip of cardstock to the base and then popped up the sentiment panel and the white panel on foam tape.  Last, I colored the flower to coordinate with my other cards from the countdown days and added it to the card front.

I also grabbed an envelope included in this card kit and stamped a sentiment on the flap....

It's Day 2 of the MFT March Card Kit Countdown.  Today I have the 2nd card for my little gift set of cards using the new kit called Doodled Blooms.

MFT March 2017 Card Kit

For this card, I did a Versamark, Limeade background and then added in a velum stitched layer.  I added the flower and leaves on top with some foam tape for dimension.  I added this layer to a Grapesicle layer with a little hidden message.  I stamped one sentiment on the flap and then another underneath.  I layered this card with another coordinating envelope, also included in the kit.
