MFT Sketch Challenge 300

I’m joining in with the MFT Sketch Challenge today. I started by die cutting a frame and rectangle using the MFT Single Stitched Line Rectangle Frames. On the right edge of the frame, I die cut an MFT Inside/Out Oval off the edge. I won’t be needing the inside oval for this card. On the…

MFT Colour Challenge 54

I’m joining in with the MFT colour challenge today. I created a stencil with the MFT Birthday Candle die-namics, then used distress inks to add candles on a white card base. On another piece of white card, slightly shorter than the card base, I die cut the candles again. I used the MFT Stitched Strip…

I’m following the sketch challenge at Seven Hills Craft blog today. The Happy Hedgehogs stamp set was definitely my favourite from the latest MFT release.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my niece. I stamped the Goldilocks and three bears image from the Clearly Besotted Once Upon a Time stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then coloured with Copics and Promarkers, and fussy cut it out. I cut a 4 inch square white card base and added a…

MFT Big Balloons Stencil

Today’s card features the MFT Big Balloons stencil. On watercolour cardstock, I used distress inks and the stencil to add three balloons. I flicked water over the distress ink to remove some colour for interest. I used a heat gun to dry the card. I added a sentiment from the MFT Birthday Greetings stamp set and…

Spinner card

I thought I’d have a go at making a spinner card, which seem popular at the moment. I admit, this attempt didn’t go quite to plan, as I think I could have used better thread. The one I used keeps loosening, no matter how much tape I use! Never mind, it’s fun to experiment and…
