Happy Halloweenies

Hello, its my firth and final day of this week's 5W5D and I thought I'd make another Halloween card with the Blueprints #18 from MFT

As you can see I've used the diagonal panels again and pop them over a patterned paper which you can just see peeping through. I've also utilised the little fishtail banner and stamped the spider on it. The sentiment is stamped onto the narrow strip which I've cut at and angle to fit across the card.

Other Supplies:

I've really enjoyed using this die set this week- like I said at the start they are so versatile as they have so many dies in. They are also really good for mixing and matching with your existing stamps and dies.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Bear Hugs! 5W5D day #4

Hello!!! It's Thursday and open evening for my school which means a very long day at work. Luckly i've got ahead with my crafting an do have the 4th card of this week 5W5D to share with you. Again I've been using the MFT Blueprints #18 die set and today's card shows off the angled panel dies and the little rows of dots. 

I love how cute this little fella is!

You were meant to SPARKLE!!! 5W5D day#3

Hello, it's Wednesday and the half way point of this week's 5W5D using the very versatile MFT dynamics Blueprtints #18. 

I've kept this one super simple, I've used the diagonal dies cut cut some gorgeous pink vellum and then add a simple sentiment in the gap. To finish the card I've added some die cut stars embellished with sequins. BTW I attached the vellum by adding a tiny dot of Tombow glue behind the little glossy dots so the glue doesn't show! AND because it's very dotty it's perfect for the Creative Inspirations challenge- "going dotty"!

I love the fact that this design can be used time and time again and all I'd need to do is swap the vellum for some different patterned paper and add a different sentiment.

Congratulations, please get in touch to claim your prize. I'm also waiting for the winner from week 2 to get in touch. You have until the weekend to claim your prize before it is re-drawn.

Craft Mojo DT and 5W5D week 3

Morning, time for another Craft Mojo DT project. I can't believe this is my third week back at school and my third week running 5W5D mini series! Thanks for all your support and comments.

For this week I have decided to use a die set rather than a stamp set as my product to focus on. The set I am using is Blueprints #18 from MFT. The blueprints die sets are really useful, each of them contains a selection of different dies that can be used in a variety of ways. Better still each set comes with some suggested layouts- they are really useful and can daily be found on the MFT website or through a search on Pintrest. 

For the first card of the week I have actually decided to use the sketch from the MFT Wednesday stamp club challenge. As I've said before I really like using a sketch when I'm struggling to make a card.

I've really tried to use the dies as the focus of the card, there is only a little bit of stamping for the sentiment. The dies are cut from Doodlebug papers and paired with some co-ordinating Doodlebug card and a little paperclip. And in case you were wondering how I cut the little white sentiment strip.... I cut the card using the long strip die from the set and then re-cut it using the same die overlapping the edge of the first die cut .

OK there you go, thanks for stopping by again. I;m very grateful for all your kind comments- don't forget there'll be a luckily winner of a £5 Craft Mojo voucher again this week.

Morning, I'm going to be very busy today doing school work BUT I had quite a crafty day yesterday and got quite a few cards made. One of tha cards I made was this one, a second attempt at the "beverage" theme for Less is more

I simply stamp the cup and sentiment (from the PS stamp set Hot Concoctions) using Memento Espresso Truffle ink and then I used gold Perfect pearls mixed with a little water to add some detail. To finis I used various sprays, inks etc to splatter the card and finished with a coffee cup stain made by putting ink on the edge of a storage tub. 

I quite like how much grandly detail this one layer card has..... what do you think??

p.s. the randomly picked winner of the £5 Craft Mojo voucher from lasts weeks 5W5D is.......

AND if you can pop by next week I'm going to be doing it all again!!!!

Christmas Cheer!

Morning, I'm really pleased to say I'm up and crafting early today so I've managed to make a card for this week's Less is more challenge where the theme is "one layer, beverages"

I've dug out a SU stamp set called "Happy Hour" to make my card- of course I've kept it nice and simple with just a tiny bit of glitter glue for embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by today!
