Patriotic Thank You For Your Hospitality with MFT Stamps No Place Like Home

Hey guys! I’m playing with both the My Favorite Things sketch and color challenges with this patriotic thank you card. Perfect way to thank your hosts if you are visiting for the Fourth of July Holiday!

I used a variety of supplies from My Favorite Things to create my card — stamps, dies, cardstock & ink. I LOVE all of MFT stitched die-namics! For this card I used the stitched rectangles and the stitched heart die-namics as well as the Home Sweet Home die-namics to create the sweet little house.

TIP:  Use a fine tip glue pen to assemble the house — some of the elements are so small that just a couple of dots of glue did the trick.


Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment directly on the white stitched rectangle before attaching the heart and house. As a finishing touch I added some fun silver, red and blue sequins.

TIP:  To avoid adding to much “bulk” to your card, turn the blue rectangle into a frame and nestle the white sentiment piece inside of it. 

Create the frame by cutting out the center of the blue rectangle with the same die used to cut out the white rectangle. Then replace the blue center with the white sentiment piece…it fits perfectly!

Get Well Card with My Favorite Things Doodled Blooms

Today I made a get well card for my aunt who just had heart surgery. Hopefully these cheerful blooms from My Favorite Stamps will brighten her day!

I started by stamping the bloom images on Copic X-Press Blending Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut them out using the coordinating dies and then colored them in with Copic markers.

TIP: Cut your images out before coloring them in. There’s nothing worse than spending a bunch of time coloring only to have the die shift and ruin your hard work — speaking from experience here!  😉 

Next I used the Misti precision stamping tool to stamp the stems and sentiment directly on the A2 card base. Using the Misti allowed me to get perfect placement.

Lastly, I attached the blooms to the card with thin foam adhesive squares. I used two squares under the center flower to give it a little more height.

You are Loved – MFT Stamps Sketch and Color Challenge

Hey guys!  Today I have a card for you that combines both the My Favorite Things Sketch and Color Challenges. Isn’t this a gorgeous color combination? So bright and cheery! Reminds me of a tropical drink. And I love this week’s sketch so much that I’ve used it two days in a row!

I started my card with a white 100# A2 card base and then layered on MFT Pure Plum cardstock and another piece of white cardstock.

TIP:  Use 100# or 110# cardstock for the base of your cards. It folds nicely when scored and is a nice weight for holding layers and embellishments.

I used a Stampin’ Up! Banner die to cut the banner from white cardstock. Then I blended MFT Blu Raspberry Hybrid Ink over the entire banner with a Ranger ink blending tool. I started from the edges and worked towards the center until the entire banner was colored…I could have used Blu Raspberry cardstock but it seemed a little flat and I like the added texture that I achieved by blending the ink.

NOTE: The Stampin’ Up dies have retired but I linked to a set of banner dies from My Favorite Things below that will be a wonderful substitution.

The heart was cut from white cardstock with My Favorite Things Stitched Heart Die-namic. I used a Ranger Ink Blending Tool to blend yellow ink over the entire heart. Next, I added pumpkin ink blended from the edges in towards the center leaving a small area yellow, then I added tangerine ink from the edges in just a little bit to get a nice gradient. I love how the coloring on the heart turned out…such a warm and sunny feeling.

TIP: Go over the entire heart again with the lightest color ink to smooth out the blending if it needs it.

I stamped the flower from MFT Doodle Blooms stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in using Copic markers keeping the darkest ink towards the center. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and attached it to my card with dimensional foam adhesive.

The sentiment is from MFT More Essential Sentiments stamp set and is cut out with Lawn Fawn Extra Sentiment banner dies…these dies are nice and long and you can cut them to make whatever length you need.

I finished off my card with some iridescent sequins which I attached with micro glue dots.

TIP: Micro glue dots are the perfect size for attaching small sequins. They are a little smaller than regular glue dots and fit perfectly under the small sequins.
