My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar – Clean & Simple

Hey Guys! Have you heard about the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest? There are 3 categories — Clean & Simple Genius, Coloring Virtuoso, and Innovation Master.

I created today’s card for the Clean and Simple category.  Clean and simple cards typically have clean lines, plenty of white space, and few embellishments and this card definitely fits that description.

Starting with a 4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of white cardstock, I die-cut the word HUGS using MFT Words for Friends die-namics and stamped the cute “I NEED YOUR HUGS. STAT!” sentiment below it.

I used foam adhesive to mount this on a pink cardstock mat which gave the die-cut HUGS a nice 3D look.  Lastly, I added a few stitched hearts which added some interest without taking away from the clean look of my card and attached everything to an A2 card base.

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!

You Make Me Happy – Color Throwdown and MFT Sketch Challenge

Handmade Heart Card MFT Stamps

Hi Guys! I know it’s been awhile! I really needed to take a break and get my house and life in order. I’ve also decided to close my Etsy shop which means no more tedious mass production and more time blogging and creating! Now I will have the time to be more consistent in sharing my cards with you.

Today I am playing along with the Color Throwdown Challenge as well as the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.

I really love this week’s sketch for My Favorite Things. I’ve wanted to use my Stitched Heart Die-namics and this was the perfect opportunity!

I started with a piece of  Neenah 100# Solar White cardstock cut in half and scored to make my card base. Then I layered Stampin’ Up! Old Olive cardstock and a piece of retired designer series paper.

I used Stampin’ Up! Banner dies to cut the banners from green and white cardstock and then layered them on my card.

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

I used the second largest My Favorite Things Stitched Heart Die-namic to cut the heart from a piece of retired Stampin’ Up! designer paper and mounted it to my card with dimensional adhesive.

I just love the stitched detail these dies offer! Little details like the stitching and using dimensional adhesive to add height can really elevate a card to the next level…pardon the pun. 🙂

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things More Essential Elements stamp set and goes perfectly with the happy colors from this week’s Color Throwdown. After stamping the sentiment on white cardstock, I cut it out with a Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namic.

I finished off the card with some happy little yellow flowers from the My Favorite Things Doodled Bloom Stamp Set which I stamped with Versa Ink on yellow cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After cutting out the flowers with the coordinating Doodle Blooms Die-namics I attached them to my card using mini glue dots.

Hope you enjoyed today’s happy card and remember…”You make me happy!”
