MFT's Kitschy Kitchen & Judy Samples!

My Favourite Things has a super adorable die set with a co-ordinating stamp set, called Kitschy Kitchen and have a look at the card samples that Judy, with her usual creative spark, has made for us!

I love the variety of the brick backgrounds that Judy used - using a brick stencil, you can use texture paste, inks, many possibilities!!  Judy coloured the stamped images with her copics and added different sentiments.

Bright and white!

Happy Friday! If you are in my part of the world, you were probably wearing sunglasses this week!!
You might need them for this card, lol. I started with a piece of watercolour paper and spritzed it with a good amount of water before I sprinkled violet and cadmium scarlet colorburst on it. Dabbed it with paper towel and then I blended it together a bit with a baby wipe. The border is a die from MFT, 4 lovely borders in this set with stitching. Sentiment is Sharon's script from Brushes Monroe, moonlight butterfly from Memory Box and enamel Ranger dots in classic cherry.
                                          Enjoy the wonderful weather! Till next time, Anja

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card that I made with MFT's Hugs die. I have seen so many cute cards made with this die. I got my inspiration from Joy, click here to see her card. The background paper is from Echo Park called Party Time. I also used a little Monster from MFT's Monster stamp and die set. Instead of using my usual bling, I used Nuvo crystal drops and Irresistible from Imagine. Just gives that little something to the card. I forgot about the sentiment, it is from Penny Black's stamp set called Heartfelt.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

MFT- Kindness clean and simple card

Andrea here!
I finally got my craft room clean enough for me to make a card.
I did enlist hubby's help- it was that messy

I broke open my new stamp set from MFT- Kindness with complimenting dies.
It is important to note that the dies do not cut out the words from the stamp set
Instead they are complimenting dies to the stamps

On my card I used a die and a stamp from the set
Holy cow does this stamp set have a lot of stamps to choose from
First I stamped a MFT background stamp in Whimsical Woodgrain
stamped on a kraft background in brown ink
Then I die cut the kindness die in black cardstock
and one of the sentiments embossed in white on black card stock
Glossy accents on my die cut to make it pop….
That's it!
And I love it. 

I hope you like my clean and simple card too!
Happy Saturday,

Purple Altenew!

Happy Friday! Another Altenew card! Last week I taught a class with the Hibiscus set and I had it still on my desk....I stamped this flower on watercolour paper and coloured it first with a Derwent Inktense pencil (red violet) then I sprinkled some orchid colourburst on it and sprayed it with water.....I had a piece of papertowel ready to dab up some of the colour, lol.  I fussy cut the flowers out and when that was done , I took a black sharpie and went around it and I also coloured the dots in the center. On a rectangle piece of white cardstock, I tried to put a few sprinkles of the same colour colourburst (believe me that is hard) and then lightly spritzed it with water. Went a little nuts with the Nuvo drops (violet galaxy) and  added the sentiment, it is from Avery Elle. One of the flowers is glued down and the other one is popped up.
                                      Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja
