Happy Valentine's Day

Hello my friends, I hope your having a great day!

Today I broke out my Ladybug Tilda rubber stamp from Magnolia stamps which I had had for several years.  Most cards made with Magnolia cards are very elaborate with lost of die cuts and flowers, which I totally love but I wanted to make a more simplified A2 size card, so I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  I still happy with how the card turned out.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Dies:MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13 & 27,  Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Rectangles and Sketch Heart,  Mama Elephant - Heart Border

You Arrr Treasured

Hello again my friends, I hope you had a good day today.

I had an idea in mind for another card using the Ahoy Matey stamp set from MFT Stamps and so I managed to find the time to make the card.

I pretty much coloured the boy pirate the same as my previous card and this time I made a little banner using the Fishtail Banner Die-namics from MFT Stamps and a Typewriter Key Font stamp set from Recollections.

Although the card definitely has a nautical theme with the striped background paper is also reminds me of the American flag.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Claire Keay-Ahoy Matey  Recollections - Typewriter Key Font
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13 & 20 and Fishtail Banner
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Memento Ink - Paris Dusk,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers: Skin - E11, V15, E33, R21  Hair - E27, E29  White - C00, C1, C3  Red - R24, R29, R39  Black - C5, C7, C9  Pants - B95, B97, B99
Design Paper: Authentique - Anchor 6x6 paper pad
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock and 65lb Blue card stock,  MFT Stamps - 100lb Wild Cherry card stock,  Twine from my stash and Foam Tape

Ahoy, Matey

Hello my friends and welcome to a brand new week.

I was looking through my stamp sets and found one from way back in 2011 that I had never used.  I think it was about the time I was just getting into ordering from MFT Stamps but nothing like I do now.

I used the Ahoy Matey stamp set that was designed by Claire Keay and Anchored 6x6 paper pad from Authentique to make this card.  I already have another idea, so I very well be making another card with these two items.

I am super happy with how my colouring turned out on this image.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Claire Keay-Ahoy Matey
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13,  Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Rectangles

Love Makes The World Go 'Round

Hello my friends, I can't believe it has actually warmed up and is pouring rain.  It's ugly out but I'm hoping it will at least get rid of the snow remaining on the roads.

Today I made a simple card combining several Pure Innocence stamp sets from MFT Stamps.  The main girl image is from the Hula Hoop stamp set, the dog is from the Woof You stamp set and the sentiment is from the retired Pure Innocence and The Pinwheel.

The sky was made using a mask created by using the Puffy Cloud Border dies from Lawn Fawn and the grass was made using the Grassy Fields dies from MFT Stamps.  I added a few heart sequins that I have had from way back when I originally started making cards and used to use crayola markers to colour in images.

Here is a close up of just the girl after I coloured her.



Here is the finished card.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-HulaHoop, Woof You and P.I. and the Pinwheel
Dies: MFT Stamps - Woof You and Grassy Fields   Lawn Fawn - Puffy Cloud Borders
Inks: MFT Stamps - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink,  Versafine - Onyx Black  Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass

Life Ia A Picnic

Hello my friends, I hope your having a good weekend so far.

Yesterday, with snow on the ground and me dreaming of the sun, I decided to stamp and colour this cutie, from the retired Birdie Brown - Every Day Is A Picnic stamp set from MFT Stamps.


Today, in between loads of laundry and vacuuming, I was able to make a card using this girl.  I made the picnic blanket by using the Gingham Background stamp and the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges dies.

The background was made using distress inks and masks made from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders for the ground and Puffy Cloud Borders for the sky.
