Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well…

It is time for a new My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch

Inspired by the sketch, I made this card-

I absolutely love how this card turned out. I used the stamp set from the January release – Sweet honey Bee by Tiddly Inks. I coloured the images and used coordinating dies to cut them out.

On a piece of smooth white cardstock, I ink blended the background using the Watercolor wash- free form stencil.

Then, I adhered all the images and stamped the sentiment. I stuck the panel on Sno Cone card base.

I hope you will take time to give the sketch and have a chance at winning the $50 GC to MFT store.

See you.. Bye.

MFT Celebrate Everything card kit release day

Hello everyone! The My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything card kit is now available for purchase.

The Celebrate Everything Card Kit includes the following products:

For today’s post, to celebrate the kit release, I made not one, not two but 5 cards! I used supplies from the kit and the die set sold separately.

I first started by assembling the bows in four colours die cut using ‘Perfect Present Die-namics’. I cut 3/4 ” cardstock strips in the same colours as bows to match them. I adhered the strips on double stitched rectangle panel and added the bows. Stamped the sentiment. I adhered the panel on a striped patterned paper from ‘Time to celebrate’ paper pad. Finally, adhered everything on a white card base.

I used the same Perfect Present Die-namics on this card too except that I used the whole ‘present’ on this card. The present part is actually a side folding note card. You can open it and temporarily adhere the Gift Card for the recipient.

What’s celebration without confetti right? So, I made this shaker card. I used Time to Celebrate Paper pad and Balloon Builder Die-namics. I added heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock. The sentiment is from Celebrate Everything stamp set. I adhered the shaker panel on Eiffel Tower card base.

The next two cards feature Celebrate with Cake Die-namics. Since I can’t make good REAL cakes, I had fun making these on my cards. LOL! I kept this card design very simple. The sentiment on the cake is from Itty Bitty Celebration stamp set. The ‘Happy Birthday’ is from Celebrate Everything stamp set. I partially a sentinent from the set.

For my last card I tried a step cake design. 🙂 I used the same Celebrate with Cake Die-namics and Celebrate Everything stamp set.

I hope you like the cards I made. For more inspiration visit MFT blog and YouTube channel.

MFT January kit- Celebrate Everything countdown Day

Hi everyone! I’m super excited to share the projects I made using the My Favourite Things January kit- Celebrate everything.

Here is a look at the kit

The Celebrate Everything Card Kit includes the following products:

I made a couple of cards using the kit for today. In addition to the kit, I used my favorite BB Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set.

As soon as I saw the oval in the ‘Balloon builder Die-namics’, I knew I wanted to use it by its own.

I started by die cutting a double stitched rectangle panel and stamped the sentiment. Then stamped the cute mouse image above the sentiment. I created a mask for the image and placed it overbthe stamped image. I created a stencil using the oval die from the Balloon Builder Die-namics set from a scrap paper and inked an oval backdrop for my mouse.

Then, I removed the mask and coloured the image using Copic markers- W5, W3, W3, W1, W0. For the party hat- G46, G43, G40. Balloon- YR24, Y17, Y35.I

I chose the diagonal stripes paper from Time To Celebrate paper pad and cut it down to 4.25″×5.5″ and adhered it on a card base. On it adhered the rectangle panel with the image.

I have one more fun card using the same supplies as the first card.

I started by cutting parts of the balloon using Balloon builder Die-namics out of Summer Splash cardstock. I sponged Caribbean Sea premium dye ink on the edges for more dimension and kept it aside.

I die cut a double stitched rectangle from Neenah Solar white cardstock and stamped the mouse image (masking part of an image of the mouse). Coloured the mouse using Copic markers. Then adhered the die cut balloon to the stamped string which was part of the mouse image.

To finish the card, I added a heat embossed sentiment strip right on top of the balloon and just like the first card, assembled the panel on diagonal stripes patterned paper that was cut to 4.25″×5.5″ and adhered on a card base.

I hope you like the cards today. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more inspiration and be ready to shop!

Take care. Hugs…Sindhu.

Love words- MFT slimline challenge

Hi everyone!

Do you like making slimline cards? I do. Except that I find it hard to photograph them, I absolutely love making them! 🙂

We have a new slimline challenge on MFT blog and the theme is – Love Words. We challenge you to feature the word ‘Love’on your slimline card designs- stamping or die cuts.

Here is my take on the challenge.

I used a couple of new products from the January release to make this card.

I started by die cutting three hearts using ‘Piece of my heart’ Die-namics

from three different coloured cardstock (Sno Cone, Summer Splash, Tropical Teal) and assembled the hearts using all three colours in each heart.

I adhered the three hearts on a double stitched slimline rectangle panel cut using Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and added the die cut created using ‘Love ya’ Die-namics. I also added a sentiment strip using ‘Itty Bitty Love’ stamp set.

Thank you so much for visiting me today! H

See you next week. 🙂

MFT WSC 577

Hi everyone!

It’s wednesday, which means there is a new sketch challenge for you all on My Favorite Things blog.

MFT stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge

It is a pretty easy sketch and it is very open for interpretation. Here is my take on it. Very straight forward.

I started by die cutting a double stitched rectlangle panel using A2 Double Stitched rectangle STAX Die-namics from Sno Cone cardstock. I used Lots of Hearts stencil and made a pattern on the Sno cone cardstock. I sponged Distress oxide ink very lightly.

Then, I cut a narrow rectangle panel from Smooth White cardstock and sponged Worn Lipstick Distress oxide ink on the whole panel. Then, I added hearts using the same Lots of Hearts stencil, this time applied more pressure and used the same Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink to make the pattern.

I stamped the cute littke girl from ‘You are the sprinkles to my frosting ‘ PI stamp set and coloured her using Copic markers, fussy cut her out right upto the outline and adhered her on the rectangle panel.

I finished the card with a small sentiment.

Thank you for visiting me today! I hope you will join the challenge for a chance to win $50 Gift Certificate to MFT store.

See you tomorrow. Bye!

Hi Hunny! and a little about ‘MFT resources’

Hi everyone!

I have a cute honeybee card to share with you today. The card is a very simple and easy one.

Have you ever found yourself wanting to make something but but stuck what and how to start? I usually experience this after coming back from a long break or after a card making spree. I feel stuck.

There a few things I try when this happens. I colour images or play with a new to me stamp set or take out my favorite stamp set and start stamping and colouring. Recently, I found out that sketches help me clear that block.

Did you know that MFT has so many printable resourses? From sketches, swatches, lables to colour matches of inks and cardstock to Copics and floss. It is AMAZING what you can find there. I highly recommend that you check this section- MFT RESOURCES.

Now to the card again

I used products from the January release. The cute honey bee is from Honey Bees stamp set. I also used ‘negative’ of Heartfelt Love Die-namics. I die cut one of the patterned papers from Sweet Plaid paper pack from Heartfelt Die-namics.

I hope you like the card. See you soon.

Hugs… Sindhu.

MFT color challenge 181

Hello everyone!

There is a new colour challenge on MFT blog. The colours are super happy and bright!

As soon as I saw the colours, I knew I wanted hearts on my card.

I die cut several hearts using Love Speech Bubbles Die-namics from MFT Poppin Pink and Wild Cherry cardstock.

I also die cut a double stitched rectangle using A2 Double stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and blended some grey (Iced Spuce) Distress oxide ink on the bottom of the panel. Then I adhered only hearts on the ink blended part.

I stamped the sentiment from Straight from the heart stamp set from the January release.

Finished the card by adhering the panel on Poppin Pink card base.

I hope you will take time and join the challenge.

See you soon. Take care…Sindhu.

Spread your wings- MFTWSC 576

Hello everyone!

There is a new sketch challenge on MFT stamps blog.

And here is my take on the sketch

I started by cutting two panels of cardstock- one MFT smooth white and Grapesicle cardstock using the Snow swirls cover up Die-namics. On the white die cut panel, I cut two semi circular windows using A2 stitched cirlces STAX Die-namics. I also sponged some light purple ink on both the die cut panels on the edges.

I placed and adhered the panels in such a way that the design looks continuous. I coloured some butterflies from Spread your Wings stamp set, fussy cut them and adhered them on the die cut panel. Added this to a white card base and finished the card with a sentiment stamped in black on a strip of Grapesicle cardstock.

I hope you like the card and will participate in the challenge for a chance to win a $50 GC to MFT store.

Be sure to visit MFT YouTube channel for more inspiration.

See you soon… Hugs… Sindhu.

It’s release day at MFT -January 2022

Hi everyone!

The big day is finally here! It’s time to shop! All the new products are now available for purchase.

I have a card to celebrate the occasion. 🙂

To make this card, I started by die cutting a rectangle using A2 Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I used Stitched Circle Shaker Window Die-namics to cut two circular windows on the rectangle panel.

On a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock, I stamped the images from ‘I’m So in Love with you still’ stamp set and coloured them using Copic markers and used coordinating dies to cut them out.

I used the ‘negative’ circles left from die cutting the windows to make backdrops for the critter pairs. I blended some ‘Field Day’ ink on the circle die cuts. I adhered the rectangle panel on ‘Something blue’ card base and adhered the circles in the windows. Added the images and finally stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set.

I hope you like the card. Please visit MFT blog and YouTube channel for more inspiration. While you are there, be sure to subscribe to not miss out on any inspiration and fabulous sales.

See you soon. Hugs… Sindhu.

MFT 2022 January release Count Down- Day 1

The wait is almost over! Just one more day until you get to add some wonderful products to your carts!

I have a slimline card to share with you today. It is actually slightly smaller than a regular slimline card. Mine measures 3″x8″ including the card base.

I started by die cutting a slimline double stitched rectangle using Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I chose the second largest in the set. I ink blended a background for my cute critters from ‘Odd Couple’ stamp set. I stamped them on Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured the images using Copic markers. I used ‘Odd Couple’ coordinating dies to cut out the images.

I adhered the images on ink blended background and stamped a bold sentiment using ‘Love Ya’ stamp set. I added a sentiment strip under the bold sentiment. I also added some stamped and coloured hearts. I used a copic marker on the sentiment strip to get the colour I wanted.

I added the panel on a slimline card base that I made using my most favorite colour- Summer Splash cardstock.
