I am using Inspired by Flowers. The set includes three different flowers and sentiments in a really pretty font. I stamped the Carnation with brown ink and lightly colored with Copics. The papers are Basic Grey and I added stitching around the edges.

On the bottom of my card I used a new die called Dizzy Border. It is SO pretty and it really looks like lace. I strung twine through the border and tied it in a bow. I add a sentiment from the set.

It is day three of MFT's March Teasers and today is all about five new Pure Innocence Stamps, Daffodil, Warm Fuzzies, One Sweet Chick, Girl Scout, and Boy Scout. You can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.

I just had to use the new, little Girl Scout. All four of my daughters were Girl Scouts. Who knows how many boxes of cookie we have sold!! This card is going to my friend's little girl who sold us cookies this year.

I colored her with Copics and the background is sponged. I used the new Say What? die and stamped the "Got Cookies?" sentiment from the stamp set. I used part of the Dizzy Doily Die to peak out at the bottom.

I finished off with buttons and twine.

I used the Dizzy Doily on the inside and stamped another sentiment from the set.

MFT March Teasers Day 2


It is the second day of MFT's March Teasers and we are sharing peeks of two new stamp sets, Say What? and Clearly Sentimental About Parenting. You can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.

I am using Say What? today. I am really excited about this stamp set and the coordinating die! Just so fun and scrappy! To make my pocket I just folded my DP in half and stitched around three of the edges, leaving the top open. The top of the back flap is cut with the Perfect Bracket Edge die. I used half of the new Dizzy Doily on the top of my pocket.

I used the a sentiment from the stamp set and the die and added my heart with the Hearts a Plenty Die.

Then I made a simple tag and tied on my candy with ribbon and at the bottom added another sentiment from the set.

MFT March Teaser Day 1

Well it is just about the end of the month and time to start the MFT Teasers for March. Today peeks include three new stamp sets, Fred Bear - Oopsie Daisy, Flapper Doodles - My Favorite Hello, and Sassy & Sweet. You can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.

My card uses Sassy & Sweet and one of the new dies, Sweet Stack. The stamp set coordinates with the set of dies, and let's just say it is fun, fun, fun! I stamped the zebra print twice in black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut out the sentiment with the third die in the die set. I used the Simply Scallops die for my bottom border and added rhinestones.

Here's a closer look at the die set.

I popped up all three of my layers of the die to give my card some dimension. Speaking of "die-mension", Megan I are hosting this month Guest Designer Contest over that the MFT Forum at Splitocoaststampers. Add dimension to your project using your MFT Dienamics. If you don't have Dienamics use punches or other elements to add some dimension to your project. I sure hope you will join in the challenge!!


I used the dies on the inside of my card too!!

Birthday Gift Bag

I have a gift bag to share today that I made with Taylor's Key Ingredients Kit for February. Sometimes I like to make a fun gift to give a present in and it as easy as a card is, you are just working with a little larger space, which can be fun!

I used the stamp set For the Love of Cupcakes for my main image and colored it with Copics. I used It's A Banner Set - 1 and the Banner Day 1 Die for my Happy Birthday sentiment. All my papers, flowers, brads and ribbon are from the February Key Ingredient kit. I just love how everything goes together!!

Here is closer look. The brown paper is flocked, so pretty and rich in person. I added glitter to my cupcake frosting and plate. I just love the brads!

You can find all of the February coordinating products HERE. This is a great way to get extra mileage out of your kit while knowing that everything will still match beautifully!

The design team is continuously adding projects to the Key Ingredients Gallery so make sure you check back often!

You can find out everything you need to know a the Key Ingredients Kit right HERE.

I'm back to work today! Hope you have a great week.

Taylored Expressions February Key Ingredients

I have a couple more cards to share today that I made with Taylor's Key Ingredients Kit for February. I posted a project last week on the Key Ingredients Blog and these are the next two cards that are going in the Note Box I made.

This month's kit has five different papers and colors from the My Mind's Eye Lush Collection. The red paper is flocked and I just love the rich feel it gives my card. I used a stamp and a sentiment from Sew Happy. All the embellishments are from the kit. I used the TE Medium Scallop Die for the scalloped border.

My next card uses another one of favorite TE stamps, What's Cookin'?. I just love this little apron. First I paper pieced the whole apron and then layered the top black apron over the first one. The sentiment is also from the stamp set. I used the TE Medium Scalloped Die for my layered scallop border.

All You Need is Love

I have to say that one of my very favorite paper lines is My Mind's Eye! I just picked up one of the new 6 x 6 pads at my local scrapbook store and decided to play around with the sketch challenge on the My Mind's Eye blog.

I needed one last Valentine, so the theme and sketch were perfect! I cut out the heart with a Nestibility die and added some stitching. All the papers are from My Minds Eye Stella and Rose Gertie. The lace and the embellishment is also from My Mind's Eye.

Added a little twine bow. The stamped frame is from My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by today!
