Seems like lots of folks are having stormy weather today so I thought a sunshine card was in order. All the products, paper, stencil, ink, die cuts and sentiment are from MFT. I have someone in mind to send this to. Hope she likes it. Oh, I cut the flower out on express-it white paper and colored with copics as several of the designers suggested. I like the way it turned out.

I got to use Blueprints #12 for the first time this week. I love the stitched circle which I cut out twice so that I could use the positive as well as the negative. The flower is also from this set. I used the Sheer Shimmer mix to add shine to the flower-my first time trying this product as well. The colors are the challenge for this month all from MFT.

I love the simple elegance of this card. I stamped the background using stamps from MFT. The design elements were made using fishtail flag stax and blueprints 8. This is also the color challenge for the month!


I made this card for a special friend's birthday. We are getting to the age where we appreciate each birthday we celebrate! I made the plaid trim using the plaid builder stamp from MFT. The sentiment and flower dies are from them as well.

I have had this stamp in my collection for quite awhile and was never really sure how to use it. This sketch is perfect and I am sure that I will call on it again. I love the combination of the nightshift blue and the sour apple green. I used some washi tape for the tabs.

I love this sketch. It has so many possibilities. It really lends itself to a gate fold card. I used Natural, Nightshift blue and Wild Cherry cardstock. I used the flower & leaf trio for the flower. I cut the small layers in white, sponged the edges with cotton candy ink and then spritzed them with water, crumbled them and when they were dry, layered them over a Cotton Candy large layer. The center is a pearl. The sentiment was stamped in Nightshift blue ink and the leaves were cut from Sour Apple.
