I have three cards to share tonight, all using new Pure Innocence Peanut Butter & Jelly.

My first card combines PI PB&J with coordinating Die-namics and new Blueprints 19.  I really like this color combo of Kraft and Razzle Berry with just a touch of Gumdrop Green.

Better-Together-Pink-500

The cute PI girl was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped in Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers.  The plaid strip was created using Plaid Builder with Razzle Berry and Gumdrop Green inks, and Grid Background was stamped using Razzle Berry ink as well.

Better-Together-Pink-CU

Inside, I added a second panel of Grid Background and another strip of plaid.

Better-Together-Pink-In

My second card has more of a clean and simple look with the focus being on the colored images.  I combined PI PB&J with One of My Favorite Peeps.  The sentiment panel and flower were both cut using Blueprints 19.

Perfect-Pair-475

As above, images were stamped/masked onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.

Perfect-Pair-CU

Inside, I added the PI from It’s a Sign along with additional sentiments.

Perfect-Pair-In

Lastly, I created a card using PB&J with new Fine Check Background and High Rise Uppercase Alphabet.

Better-Together-Green-500

 Gumdrop Green ink was stamped onto Gumdrop Green card stock, with letters cut from the same.

Better-Together-Green-CU

 Inside, I completed the sentiment and stamped two partial silhouettes.

Better-Together-Green-In

MFT Previews, thankful

Hi everyone!    I’m back today with another sample of MFT‘s September release. Today I used two new Die-namics sets, Words of Gratitude and Falling Leaves.

thankful-475

After  cutting the leaves from X-Press It Blending Card, I used my Copic Air Brush and Copic markers to color the leaves.  The heart was cut from the red leaf using new Mason Jar Die-namics and “thankful” was cut from Hot Fudge card stock.

I *love* the embossed detail in the leaves.  (And I love my air brush!)

thankful-cu1

Inside, I stamped a small sentiment from Thankful Thoughts  (which coordinates with Words of Gratitude) and added a fourth airbrushed leaf.

MFT Previews, Diagonal Bars with Cute Critters

Hi everyone!  We’re moving right along with only four more days until MFT‘s September Release!  :)  My card today features new Diagonal Bars Stencil, Out On a Limb Die-namics and Miss Tiina’s Cute Critters.

You-Stole-My-Heart-475 

Using an embossing mat, I embossed Diagonal Bars into Smooth White card stock.  I think it adds just enough texture.  And looks kind of like a sweater.

I used the tree from Out On a Limb as a branch and hung a Paver Red heart cut from Mason Jar Die-namics.  The raccoon was cut from X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

You-Stole-My-Heart-CU

Inside, I added one of the cute sentiments from the set.

MFT Sept. Previews, You Make Life Sweet

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with another preview of My Favorite Things‘ September 16 release!  (Only five more days!)  Today I’ve used a couple of *really* cute new Die-namics sets with a coordinating stamp set – Mason Jar Mug and Mason Jar Die-namics with Mason Jar Labels stamp set.  There are lots of little accessories to place in the mug/jar.  SO cute!  I also used Blueprints 19 and Small Brick Wall Stencil.

You-Make-Life-Sweet-500r

After embossing the brick wall onto Kraft card stock, I swiped over the bricks with Sweet Tooth pigment ink.  The stripes were created using Pin Stripe Background with Pink Lemonade ink, then again using Sno Cone.

You-Make-Life-Sweet-CUr

Inside, I added a thin leftover strip of stripes, a couple more hearts and a sentiment from Cheerful Blessings.

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to a second day of September 16 release previews with My Favorite Things!  Today I’ve used new Birdie Brown Class Act with coordinating Die-namics as well as new Blueprints 19.

You-Rule-500

After die-cutting the girl from X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped her in Black Licorice Hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers.  She’s adhered over a base of Writing Tablet Background, stamped in Sno Cone onto Smooth White card stock.  All elements, except the girl and ruler, are pieces of Blueprints 19.

MFT Sept. Previews, Out On a Limb

Hi everyone, and welcome to the first day of September previews with My Favorite Things!  First though, I want to make sure you’re aware of the BIG sale going on in the NEW MFT Boutique!  Through tonight, save 25% off of everything!  Check it out!

1 sale

Today I have two cards to share using Lisa Johnson’s Out On a Limb stamp set and coordinating Die-namics.

First I created a tree, tied with a yellow ribbon.  (It’s an ole oak tree.  Now that song can be stuck in your head too.)  ;)  (I’m showing my age…)

Thinking-of-You-Bless-You-600

 The tree was cut from Kraft card stock with the leaves cut from Gumdrop Green.  A few of the leaves were cut a second time and popped up on clear foam squares (which I cut in half to fit the leaves).

The tiny leaves on each side of the sentiment are stamped in Gumdrop Green ink and the scalloped edge was cut using new Blueprints 19.

Thinking-of-You-Bless-You-CU

Inside, I added a sentiment from Words of Inspiration.

Thinking-of-You-Bless-You-In

Next, I created a thank you card using Out on a Limb, Diamonds and Dots Border and the apple from new Birdie Brown Class Act.

Thank-You-Teacher-475

After die-cutting the apple from X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, punched holes to create a button, then covered the apple with Glossy Accents.  Once dried, I tied onto the card using hemp cord.  (The tiny Wild Cherry apples are covered with Glossy Accents as well.)

Thank-You-Teacher-CU

Inside, I added a second strip of text dots and a sentiment from Sending Thanks.

Thank-You-Teacher-In

Hi all!  I took time this morning to play along with MFT‘s Wednesday Stamp Club.  It’s been a while, and I miss it.

I used Pure Innocence Sending Big Hugs with Spotlight Sentiments, Mini Scallop Edge and Diagonal Stripes Background.

Note:  The “blue-ish” enamel dots are actually purple.   They seem to be showing as blue only on some devices (i.e. my iPad).  ?

Thank-You-WSC191-475

 The PI girl was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card using Sending Big Hugs Die-namics, stamped in Black Licorice Hybrid ink then colored with Copic markers.  I nipped off her legs (eep!) and placed her inside an opening cut using Circle STAX 2.

The sentiment was stamped in Grape Jelly ink onto Grapesicle card stock then layered atop Sour Apple.  I cut the Sweet Tooth border using Mini Scallop Edge, and stripes were stamped in Sno Cone onto Berrylicious card stock.

Thank-You-WSC191-CU

I finished the inside very simply with a partial sentiment from Words of Inspiration and a silhouette stamped in Berrylicious ink.

Thank-You-WSC191-In

 Here’s this week’s sketch.  All details about the sketch challenge can be found on the MFT blog and in this week’s newsletter.

MFT August Creative Challenge, Watercolor

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with MFT‘s August Creative Challenge.

Watercolor is a medium that’s been around forever but is experiencing a resurgence in popularity in the crafting, card-making, and scrapbooking world. This month, our team will show you ways to achieve the look with stamps, stencils, and inks.

My first card uses Floral Fusion Cover-Up with Razzle Berry, Banana Split, Pink Lemonade and Cotton Candy dye inks showing from beneath.

Happy-Happy-BD-CC-475 

The inks were stamped onto an acrylic block then picked up with a watercolor brush and added to dampened watercolor paper.  The sentiment, stamped in Black Licorice ink, is from Celebrate You.

Happy-Happy-BD-CC-CU

Inside, I stamped an additional sentiment from Celebrate You and included a leftover piece of watercolored paper/Floral Fusion.

Happy-Happy-BD-CC-In

 The background on my second card was created by stamping Confetti Background in Versamark ink onto watercolor paper.  I clear embossed then watercolored over as above.  My first thought was to iron off the embossed dots but I decided I liked the shine so I left the embossing on the panel.

Happy-for-You-CC-WC-475

 Watercoloring was done with Banana Split, Grape Jelly, Berrylicious and Sour Apple inks.

I used Happy Birthday Die-namics along with Tag Talk to create the sentiment.

Happy-for-You-CC-WC-CU

On the inside, I added an additional watercolored panel and a Birthday Sentiment.

Happy-for-You-CC-WC-In

MFT August Release Rewind – Spooky Spiders

Hi everyone!  I’m back for Day 2 of MFT‘s August Release Rewind.  It was such a fun release, I welcome the chance to play some more!

First, I used new Pure Innocence Batty About You with the tiny spider from Centerpieces Spooky Window.

The Batty girl was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card using Black Licorice hybrid ink then colored with Copic markers.  I drew “strings” using a black Copic Multi-liner and adhered the tiny spiders. To create the dotted pattern along the top, I first stamped Darling Dots in Limeade, then Grape Jelly dye ink.

Flag shapes were cut using Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers.

Inside, I adhered a leftover strip of dotted paper, stamped the image again and added a sentiment from Witch Way is the Candy?

Next I used Spider Web Cover-Up, the spider from Centerpieces Spooky Window and a Spooky Sentiment.

When stamping the sentiment, I masked off the tiny tip at the bottom of the “hi” speech bubble to create a plain block.

I added clear dots of Glossy Accents to the web along with some orange and purple pearls, and the spider is raised on a clear foam square for added dimension.

Because one spider isn’t enough, I added another to the inside along with a second Spooky Sentiment.  (I like spiders as long as they’re paper.)

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for direct links to more Release Rewind posts.

Thanks for stopping by today!  :)
