MFT January Card Kit Countdown Day 1

January 22, 2018

MFT January Card Kit Countdown has begun! This month's kit is called "Yay for You" and it features the word "Yay" and bright and cheery colors. Celebrate someone you love with a special card made with this fun kit!


The Yay for You Card Kit will be available for purchase on January 23 at 9:00 pm EST. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog today and tomorrow for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.

(Note: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I made a shaker card for today. I cut confetti from various colors of cardstock (All the colors used are included in the kit) using the Celebratory Confetti Die-namics and sealed them with a piece of translucent vellum and a Chevron Segments Cover-Up panel.  

I die cut the "Yay" twice, once from Smooth White and once from Persimmon cardstock, using the So Many Yays Die-namics. Then I adhered them together, slightly offset for a little shadow effect. The words "IT'S YOUR DAY" is from the Yay for You stamp set. It was heat embossed on Steel Grey cardstock and cut out with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics. A few Gold Stars Sequins were added to finish off the card.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today.

Thank you for stopping by!

New Birthday Project Challenge!

January 18, 2018

A new monthly challenge has started over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog! It's the Birthday Project Challenge and it features ideas for getting creative with your birthday card making. 


Of course, you will have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher by participating this challenge! Make sure you visit the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for more info about the challenge. :)

This month's theme is to use the word "celebrate" on our project. I used the Celebrate Die-namics and paired it with the Big Birthday Balloons Die-namics.

Have I mentioned that I'm obsessed with watercolor pencils recently? I made the watercolor washes on the balloons and the background with my watercolor pencils and a water brush pen. I had so much fun and watercoloring is not stressful for me any longer! 


I drew the strings with a gray Copic Multi Liner and stamped a sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments stamp set under the die-cut "celebrate" with Cement Gray ink. Several gold star sequins were added to finish off the card.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sending You Strength - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 367

January 10, 2018

It's time for a new sketch challenge over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog.


I played with the newly released Viking stamp set & Die-namics.
I stamped him onto watercolor paper with Kraft Hybrid ink and colored with watercolor pencils. The scene behind him was also painted with watercolor pencils and a water brush pen. I'm getting into watercolor pencils and I've watched a lot of tutorial videos to learn some techniques. You'll see more of my coloring with watercolor pencils this year! :D


The sentiment is from the Essential Sentiments stamp set and it was heat embossed on a Brick Red panel cut with a strip die from the new Hearts in a Row - Horizontal Die-namics. The striped paper is from the Kraft Collection - Solid Stripes Paper Pack.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. You'll have a chance to win a $50 voucher by participating in the challenge!
