MFT Summer School -- Complimentary Colors


I didn't have much in the way of MFT Stamps that would work well with this lesson.  So I used paper mostly to show my colors orange and blue.  I used MFT Musical Dies cut out in blue and a MFT Stamp to show my orange in the sentiment.  The scallop mat is from MFT Blueprints 1.

(not the best picture, but it's late)

This is has been a lot of fun!

Hello!  Just a quick post for My Favorite Things Summer School -- Symmetry.  I only have one more lesson to make now.  My job gets in the way of my fun, but I really hope to get to it after work :)


I used the MFT Penguins in Paradise Stamps and Dies again. These penguins are just so fun! 

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- Repetition

Hello!  Here is my card for My Favorite Things Summer School -- Repetition.  I'm hopeful to get the last two days done too :)


I used MFT Full of Sunshine Stamp set, Hello Die-namics, and the Radiant Sun Die-Namic.  The ink is also MFT Pineapple Hybrid Ink.  

The sunshine die has foam tape to give the card some dimension.  For the hello, I added clear Wink of Stella and then covered it all with Glossy Accents.  I haven't used that in a while and love the way it turned out.

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- Primary Colors

Hello!  This is day 2 of My Favorite Things Summer School -- Primary Colors.

I used the MFT Penguins in Paradise Stamps.  The dies that I have with this set are not the open dies.  So I fussy cut my images. I really should have die cut, then stamped and colored but I forgot that's what these dies were and had already colored.  


I did use Copic Markers except for the black.  I don't own a lot and black is not one I have. The black is a Zig Clean Color marker.

Three more lessons to go and I hope I have have time to finish before the 12th!  Unfortunately, I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- White Space



Hello all!  I'm playing along with My Favorite Things Summer School.  This is Session 1 and the first lesson was White Space.


I do not usually have this much white space, so it was a good challenge for me.  Not sure I like it very much but I wanted to try it out and this is what I came up with.

I used MFT Hog Heaven Stamps and dies.  Then I used the Stitched Dome STAX a banner from Blueprints 13 Dies.  The cute pink gems are the Pink Diamonds from Annie's Paper Boutique :)

There's four more lessons I'll be posting this weekend I hope!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Celebrate!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, we are featuring Orange Limeade Trendy Twine and the Cotton Muslin Bags.  I also used an Orange Tag-It, a Lime Chevron Trendy Page Dot, and some Twisted Lime Sequins.

I decided to stamp on my Cotton Muslim Bag.  I used a stamp platform so I could stamp several times to make sure the color is good.  It took about three times each to get a good image.  I used an orange ink and a lime green ink to match the twine. This is a very easy way to decorate these bags!


After I put some candy in the bag, I tied my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the top.  Then, I pulled out and Orange Tag-It and cut it down.  I wanted all the Celebrate sentiments to show. And then I stamped my other sentiment and added a few Twisted Lime Sequins.


This is a quick and easy little gift--you can add a gift card in here along with candy!

Have a wonderful day!
