MFTWSC191/ Stay focused


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I used MFT sketch 191.


I used MFT Geek is chic stamp and die, it is adorable. MY daughter loved it and she has created a card with it too which I will add here.

I glittered the glasses with microfine glitter on double adhesive sheet.  The sentiment is fun (MFT hot fudge), for the background I used TimHoltz burlap stencil and MFT inks- lemon drop and grout gray. I added gems, googly eyes and the panels are cut with Blueprint 15- my most used Blueprint( I have 7 of them).

The inside was the left over circle and glasses stamped over it.


I am entering it in Simon Says Stamp- Anything goes; Loves Rubber stamps- Anything goes and Word ART Wednesday- anything goes.

And here is my daughter’s beautiful card


She stenciled the background using an alphabet stencil and distress inks and added all sizes of the glasses in different glitter papers and added the eyes(she loves that). She added little gems at the corners of the glasses.

She wrote a very sweet note to her teacher inside, today is the first day of school and she is very excited.

Sweet sunday sketch 233/ warm wedding wishes


, , , , , ,

I loved the Sweet Sunday Sketch. One of my nieces is getting married and I used the sketch 233 to make her card with papers from her own wedding card.


All 3 pattern paper including the rose is from her wedding card. There are three different sentiments, all from MFT. I am in love with Ranger liquid platimun embossing powder, this is the first time I used it but love the elgance it brings to the card. I added stickles to the rose and it’s leaves. I used blueprint 15 for the main panel and quikstyle square.

The inside is simple

MFTWSC190/ Happy Birthday


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

My best friend had a birthday on Saturday so here is the card using MFT sketch 190. I just love it, it is bold and bright.


It uses a couple of techniques.

the background I first embossed it in white using an MFT concentric circle and then added Seedless preserves, faded jeans and festive berries distress ink. The round banner has MPD graduated stars emossed in holographic EP. it gives a nice shine. I stamped the word birthday but it did not stamp well so i colored it in with a copic marker. I dies cut the word Happy three times in different matching colors. Added winka stella brush(love it) and then glossy accents. I then added some blue stars and winka stella shie on them. they were popped up.

The inside has a sentiment I just love. I found this stamp at Joann from Jillibean, it has a few sentiments I can see myself using.

Ten minute happy birthday cards


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

My daughter loves watching Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner’s card making videos. After one video a couple of days ago, she asked me why I do not make cards in ten minutes? I thought let me try. So I made these two cards, It took me 17 mins.



I decided to use limited supplies, so I took the MFT birthday stamp with it’s matching die, I have lots of MFT ink that I used on this card and stencils. For the first card I used tim holtz stencil- burlap and the second card MFT stencil.

I am entering these in a few challenges

MFTWSC189/ thank you


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I made this using MFT sketch 189, I used some liberties with this sketch, masculine cards are hard for me, so this took some time. I eliminated the two crosees on the top and the round circle- I did add a sequins on that spot.


I used MFT dies, ink and stamp on this card. I love the dotted line, it adds great interest. All parts besides the fishtail flag and fishnet die are from Blueprint 11,13 and 15. For the stars I added dry glitter with glossy accents.

the inside is a mix of left over stars.


I am adding it to some challenges

MFTWSC188/ happy birthday


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I enjoyed making this card using MFT sketch 188. 


For all my panels and different elements on the card I used different dies from blueprints 3,11,15. Stamp is from MFT. The background I used Hero Arts leaf and flourish stencil with versamark ink and I embossed it with Recollections clear gold- sparkle embossing powder, loved how it looks all shiny. On the flag panel I added Large background diamonds in stripe fashion and then added the LGD strips under and over the sentiment and embossed that too. Love the flower all stickled up for shine, with the rose leaf die, the heart in the corner was cut from an embossed felt. I added some sequins.

Love how the inside came out.

MFTWSC187/ Feel better


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I made this using MFT sketch 187. The person I made it for loves purple and so  I used dark and light purple.

P1050245The colors are showing up darker than on the card. I first took the banana split and added the  square stencil. Then I added the sunflower with grape jelly, hot fudge and kraft ink. the cut strip was used in the inside. I love those vines they are from the pretty pocket stamp( I love that stamp and have found the different stamps in it to be wonderful for backgrounds.) I added a scallop rose, a banner from Blueprint that I cut short and  leaf flourish. I added stickles and sequins. All inks, stamp, stencil, dies and cardstock are from MFT.

MFTWSC186/ a little late


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

so here is the actual card I had made for the challenge MFT 186. THis is a 5.5 x 5.5 card as I felt the word Happy needed it’s space.


I love how this card looks, the stamps and die is awesome. I have also used MFT stencil the stripes and i used 3 MFT inks for it- bubblegum, blu raspberry and lemon drop. I distressed the edges with antique linen.  I also have dry embossed one panel. I had started with July color palette of MFT but then strayed as i added layers. The word happy was cut in three layers and then added a coat of glossy accents on the top. The rolled roses have stickles on the top. The swirl is from zva pearls.

Here is the inside

I made this with the latest MFT sketch 186

I will have another card for this sketch but since I am at work I have a very crude card for the challenge I made at work

it is simple and uses Fred she Said flowers. I handwrote the saying and doodled on the border.

You know in three years I have never forgotten to add my MFT card, and today I came to work and realized that I had not linked up my card. So I made this with limited supplies at work, very simple but sometimes you do what you got to do, and this was one of those times.

Do come back tomorrow for the card I will have up with this sketch, at night I will be partying as it is EID, yes 30 days of fasting done(month of Ramadan)  and now is the time to Celebrate!!.
