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.

La-La Land Crafts Birthday Gift Molli

Hey guys! I’ve been doing some coloring! This is Birthday Gift Molli and she’s by La-La Land Crafts. Isn’t she a cutie! This stamp is available in both cling mount rubber and as a digi stamp. I used the cling mount for my project.

I’ve never used digi stamps on my cards but I may be tempted to get some soon. The immediate gratification of a download sounds pretty good right now and the cute little characters from La-La Land are perfect for coloring with Copics — I confess, I might be addicted to Copic markers!  I don’t know why I waited so long to purchase them.

The only drawback to the La-La Land stamps — no dies — and you all know how much I dislike fussy cutting. This Mollie is cut by hand but I have a plan for future cutting!

My friend, Linda just got a Brother ScanNCut and she let me come over and play with it. That thing is AMAZING! It cuts out a whole sheet of stamped images in record time and you have the option of cutting right to the line or leaving a white border. It is definitely going on my crafty wish list!

After I cut and colored Molli, I needed to give her a place to sit so drew a line with a ruler and a marker on a piece of white cardstock that I cut with a stitched rectangle die. I attached the stitched rectangle to piece of slightly larger green cardstock and attached that to an A2 card base. Lastly I used foam adhesive to place Molli as if she was sitting on the gray line.

TIP:  As small as it seems, that gray line is actually pretty important; without it she’d be awkwardly sitting in mid air.

I would like to tell you the exact colors I used today but I’m just not sure which markers I grabbed. In the future I will try to keep a list. I would also like to improve my hair coloring technique. So if you have any tips or know of a good tutorial leave me a comment!

Today’s card is entered in the Seize the Birthday Challenge.
