Hello everyone.

Today is very exciting because it's release day for Neat & Tangled. The NEW release is now LIVE in the shop (CLICK HERE!) to check out the entire release or to visit the blog for more inspiration.

There are giveaways each day of the release week. Today you could win a Butterfly Beauties stamp set and coordinating die by commenting on the design team's blogs and the Neat & Tangled blog. The more you comment, the more your chances of winning increase.

Don't forget that you can save money by purchasing the complete February release bundle! 

I'm playing with the NEW Butterfly Beauties stamp set with coordinating die. This stamp set features two NEW butterfly designs that coordinate well with the Moon Magic stamp set previously released.

I started by stamping the Moon and Stars stamp in the background with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. To bump it up a notch, I stamped just the center moon image with sticky embossing ink and heat embossed it with Ranger mixed media embossing powder in the color Bone. This embossing powder has flecks of white and black and even gold. It's perfect for a moon. I used a piece of Neenah 110 lb. cardstock cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. I added this panel to a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding, Portrait orientation. To do this I used a piece of white craft foam and tear tape adhesive. The craft foam gives the panel some dimension off of the card base.

I then stamped my butterfly image from the NEW Butterfly Beauties stamp set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink so that I could Copic color my image. I have a Copic color map with all of the markers used listed for your convenience. Even though I only used two colors. I enhanced my coloring with a Gelly Roll white gel pen and added some shading with a Goldfaber colored pencil.

Once my image was colored I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I attached my butterfly to the moon background using foam tape. After it was secured, I bent the wings slightly to give them a little more lift up off of the panel. I added crystal glaze to the gem on it's back to make it stand out just a bit more.

At this point, I needed a sentiment for my card and I desperately wanted to use the "your friendship lifts me up" somewhere on my card. As I stared at my card, I realized that I did not want to add anything else to the front. To solve this problem I simply stamped the sentiment in Versafine Nocturne Clair ink on the inside of the card. This is always an option when you don't want to cover up your work on the front of the card.

Hello everyone.

I have a NEW video for you today. I'm using some products that I bought from WPlus9. I picked up the Little Dreamers stamp set and the Stardust stamp set. As soon as I saw these sets I knew that I wanted to create with them. To see more of WPlus9 products (CLICK HERE!) to visit the website where you can shop for products or find inspiration from the blog.

I'm also using some handmade watercolors that were given to me as a gift. As soon as I saw these in the pan, I knew they were something special. You can find these by (CLICKING HERE!)

Some of these watercolors have an iridescence to them but ALL of them are very pretty and sparkly. My favorite of the four I have I believe is called Nebula, but I don't know for sure. They were a gift and not all of them have labels. No matter, I plan to order more ASAP.


I absolutely love how this card turned out. I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Thank you for visiting my blog.

The One with the MFT February Release


Hello everyone.

Today is a great day! It's MFT February release day. You can check out the entire release by (CLICKING HERE!).



I have a fun video showing some of the NEW release as well as a card project. If you wait until the very end of the video you will also get a special card video from my son Dexter. He loves to make cards and desperately wanted to film his very own video.

I will leave a link to the video in this post as well as some photos of my card project. Of course, we didn't get any photos of Dexter's project as he typically runs off with it and it's usually never seen again.  He absolutely loves to give cards to his teacher at school, so I'm pretty sure that's where it went.



I hope you enjoy the video, here is a Copic color map as well as a list of products used on this project. To see the entire new release (CLICK HERE!) to visit mftstamps.com to shop or visit the blog for more inspiration.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I hope I've inspired you to create something today.
