MFT October Teasers Day 4

Thanks for stopping by today! It is Day 4 of MFT Teasers for October we are previewing Bon App├ętit and  Contempo Cage Die-namics and Stamp Sets. You can stop by Kim's blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.


My card uses the Contempo Cage Die-namic and Stamp Set. I stamped the bird perch in black ink and then the bird in pink ink. The set comes with a number of patterned options for the wing. I stamped the polka dotted pattern and cut it out with the die in the set. 

Then I cut the bird cage from patterned paper. I cut my paper the bird was stamped on to fit the cage. I used the new Oval Tab Die-namic for my sentiment. I added a second bird that was cut with dies in the set.

My scalloped border is cut with the Simply Scallops Large Die. I also added stitching and Bakers Twine in Pink Sorbet. My papers are Crate Paper - Random.



Did you know that you can cut thin chipboard/cardboard with your Die-namics? I wanted my cage to have a little more dimension, so I cut it out first with cardbroad and layered the patterned paper cage on top. You can save cereal boxes or the thinner cardboard from the back of paper pads to use with your die-namics.


On the inside I stamped another great sentiment for the set and added another bird.

October MFT Teasers Day 3

Hi all! It is day 3 of MFT October Teasers. Previews today include Clearly Sentimental About Family and Clearly Sentimental About AbundanceYou can stop by Kim's blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.


I've had this chipboard mini album in my stash for ages! The "Every Family Has A Story" sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Family inspired me to pull it out, thinking it would make a great gift. 


I covered the house with papers from Simple Stories Generations. 


I used the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Family and placed the new Oval Tab Die-namic behind the sentiment. I used the new Postage Stamp Border Die-namic to trim my roof and added pearls.


I cut the door from corrugated paper, added a brad as a door knob and used the new Vintage Flourish Die-namic above the door. 


Well, my cover is done!! I will share the inside pages when they are complete!

TESC147 Love is my Special Ingredient


Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend. I got a little stamping time in and got to play along with Taylor's last sketch challenge.

If you would like to play along just create a card using the above sketch as inspiration. You're not required to use TE stamps to play, but there's a bonus prize if you do! To be entered into the prize drawing you must upload your card to Splitcoaststampers using keyword TESC147 by Thursday, September 22nd.





 I used one of my all time favorite TE stamp set, What's Cookin'? I stamped the mixer in Memento Rich  Cocoa, colored with Copics, and used distressing ink on the edges. I stamped the sentiment and stamped and colored the cherries.

I added the little timer and stitching. My papers are Webster's Pages - Spring Market-Yacht Club-Country Estate 6x6 Petite Pack.


I used the TE Kitchen Accessories Dies to cut out my oven met and measuring spoons and tied them on with twine. I LOVE these cute, little dies.



On the inside I just used more of the pretty Websters Pages and stamped the oven mitt from the What's Cookin'? stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you get a chance to play along with the sketch challenge.

Spooky and Sweet


I have a sweet, little Halloween Treat Set to share with you today. This is going in the mail to my niece!   I am using the Taylored Expression Stamp Set Moka Tabitha. 


Tabitha is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics. I stamped three bats that come with the stamp set along with one of the sentiments. My papers are We R Memory Keepers 6x6 Pad - Spookville. My fence is cut with TE's Spooky Fence Border Die.


Tabitha's dress is paper pieced and I added orange rhinestones to her hat. What witch doesn't need a little bling!


I used a Mini Kraft Bakery Bag from the TE store and added a little candy. These bags are the cutest size, just perfect for a little treat. I used the bat stamp and another senitment from Moka Tabitha. I covered my bag with paper to coordinate with my card and added another little, spooky fence. I used a circle Nestibility to cut my circle in the paper to match the window in the bag.


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
