MFT Countdown Day 3...

Welcome to Day 3 of the MFT May Countdown.  I have a card to share today using an adorable new set called Magical Unicorns.


I did a little distress inking in the background and then created the scene using the images from the new set.  I pulled out my Copics and did a little coloring for this occasion! These unicorns are so adorable and I do love anything rainbow!


Head on over to the MFT blog to see more of the sneaks for today.  So glad you came by today and I will be back soon with some more MFT goodies!

MFT Blueprints Challenge...

Our challenge this month for the Creative Construction with Blueprints, is to use the strips, tags and flags found in the MFT Blueprint dies, to add a sentiment on to a card.

I created this card to look like the sky...


I added in the Stitched Cloud Edge dies to create the top of the card after blending in the ink along the bottom.  Next, I added in the watercolored butterfly die.  I needed to find the perfect place for a sentiment, so I knew vellum would be perfect with this stitched banner.  


To finish it off, I added in some rain drops.  A fun CAS card using a banner to add in the sentiment.  Stop over to the MFT blog to see more for today's Blueprints Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!

My Favorite Things and Xyron...

I have a fun post to share today!  Xyron and MFT are doing a little collaboration and I have a card and some products to share.

First up, here is my card...


I used the Geometric Grid Background and some Distress inks to create this panel.  I cut the panel into 4 strips and ran each through the Xyron Sticker Maker to stick them down to the white panel. 


Next, I took the "friend" die and ran it through the Sticker Maker.  This is such an easy way to add adhesive to the back of your detailed dies.


You just feed it into the front of the little machine and then crank it out....


After I adhered it to my card front, I took the Xyron Adhesive Eraser Cube and just cleaned up the edges of the sentiment.  This handy little tool is going to be a life saved in my craft room.   I always have some type of adhesive to remove from somewhere!


I also added a sentiment on a vellum banner and added in some sequins for some added detail....


Please stop over to the MFT Blog to see more on this fun collaboration with Xyron and see what prizes are up for grab@  Check out the Xyron site HERE to see what fun supplies they have for card making and scrapbooking.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
