25 Days of Christmas Tags - 2018


Hello and welcome back. Today I am taking part in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. 

Once again, MCV is the proud sponsor for today's installment of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags which is hosted by the lovely and talented Tracey McNeely.

We've chosen a theme of Botanicals - trees, mistletoe, holly - any festive greenery works!

I used the My Favorite Things Poinsettia die and went with non-traditional colours. I love the mix of aqua, pink and green. To give it a more wintery feel, I added splatters of white acrylic paint for snow. I love how it looks against the flower petals and leaves.

Make sure to visit Tracey's blog to see more tags from today's sponsor and to enter the giveaway!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

MFT November Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the November Release New Product Launch! All of the new products we've been sharing for the past five days are available NOW at My Favorite Things!
For my card today I used this month's Free with $60 die to create a colourful Christmas design.

I die cut three, of the trees side by side from a white card stock panel and then I layered the panel onto a piece of card stock that I added Distress inks too. I then added a snow hill to the bottom of the design and stamped a sentiment from the Frosty Friends stamp set onto a black card stock strip.

To complete the design, I added a silver sparkle star to the top of each tree, and then I adhered the panel to a Limelight card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for November release party! Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 2


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on November 13 at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Get Well Soon Circle Frame Die-namics and paired it with one of the the adorable bear images from the Unbearably Cute stamp set. These little bears are so cute and I thought the worked perfectfor a get well card.
I die cut the Get Well Soon frame from white card stock and then I coloured half of it with Copic markers in rainbow colours, perfect to cheer up anyone's day! I then stamped a sentiment from the Unbearably Cute stamp set onto a sentiment banner and tucked it under the frame.

I stamped the bear with Extreme Black ink and did a bit of colouring on him with gray Copic markers. I didn't want him to have too much colour since I wanted the focus to stay on the sentiment.

I finished the card with an aqua enamel heart on the bears bum (how cute is that?!) and then I added the finished panel to a Blu Raspberry card base.

My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 3


Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on November 13th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Frosty Friends stamp set to create a playful winter scene. I love anything snowman and fell in love with these guys as soon as I saw them - I love how festive and fun they are!


I created the background with Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover Distress inks and then I added water to give it a distressed look.  I stamped and coloured two of the snowmen and as I was adding them to the scene, I thought the guy with the lights kinda of looked like he was juggling LOL! So I went with it and added three presents above him. I love how it looks like the other one is watching him. :)

To complete the card, I stamped the Stay Cool sentiment with black ink onto a white sentiment strip and I added some clear sequins for some added dimension.

My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 4


Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on November 13th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Birdie Brown stamp set Ready, Set, Snow stamp set along with the new Snowflake Window Die-namis. I love this snowflake die so much - stay tuned for a video Monday sharing more ways to use this awesome design.

To create this card I first created an inked rainbow panel using Distress inks and then I die cut the window from another white card stock panel and layered it on top so the rainbow colours would peek through.

I stamped the snowboarding bear from the Ready, Set, Snow stamp set with Extreme Black ink and coloured him in with Copic markers. I adhered him to the panel with some foam adhesive for added dimension.

I completed the card by adding a sentiment stamped on a white card stock strip, added some clear droplets and then adhered the panel to a Limelight card base.

My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on November 13th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Snow Special stamp set along with the new Sassy Pants Holiday stamp set to create a fun and festive design. :)


I stamped out the 3 penguins using Extreme Black ink and then I coloured them all in with Copic markers. I stamped the middle one first and then I was easily able to line up the ither two to get them centered onto my white card stock panel.




I stamped the sassy sentiment with black under the 3 penguins and then I adhered the finished panel to a Limelight card base.

October Hits & Highlights | Merry & Bright


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the My Favorite Things October Hits & Highlights challenge - the challenge was to use the word MERRY somewhere in the design. 

I decided to go with my favourite colour palette of all (rainbow!) and create a clean and simple card with only a sentiment and no images. I love card designs like this that mainly focus on the greeting and the fun ways you can dress them up.

To create the card, I used the large Merry & Bright greeting from the Handwritten Holiday stamp set but I only stamped the '& bright' part so I could add some die cut letters for the rest of the greeting. The die cut letters were cut from the Little Letters alphabet and I used an asssortment of card stock colours to create a rainbow design.

I finshed the card by die cutting a small heart from the Blueprints 6 set and added it to the end of the sentiment and then I added the finished panel to a Limelight card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
