Santa’s little Helper… Wait, what?

Moose next to the fire

Today I have an extra long card (9″) for you. Santa and his moose are already very tired, so they hired some happy robots to help: Santa’s little helper reinvented πŸ™‚ For this card I used following sets: MFT – Bionic Bots MFT – Toasty Greetings MFT – Merry Christmoose Neat & Tangled – Santa’s Ride Lawn Fawn – Baaah Humbug (the Santa hats) First I stamped all the images, cut them out, and colored them with Copic markers (that took some time). I didn’t do anything fancy, just basic coloring with two to three shades per image. After I …

It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Close Up Wink of Stella

Just recently I ordered the most adorable MFT Christmas stamp set Merry Christmoose. Isn’t that moose just cute? So I had to create a card the is perfect for the most wonderful time of the year. I started with preparing the background. I cut out a piece of light blue cardstock that I got with one of my Simon Says Card Kits. I used the sentiment from MFT’s Trim the Tree set and stamped with Cornflower. Before I started with the snowflakes, I masked the sentiment with some post it tape. Now I used two of the snowflakes from Snowflake …

Review: Making a Shaker Card with the Fuse Tool

2nd Fuse Tool card

Hi everybody, in my last post I promised a review for the fuse tool and the Minc toner ink pen. Today I will tell you more about the fuse tool. I bought the Project Life version at Michael’s with a 50% coupon, but from what I understand it’s exactly the same as the one from We R Memory Keepers. Here the two cards I made so far: How to operate the Fuse Tool The Fuse Tool just needs power and a little time to heat up. As soon as the tip is hot enough you can run it over acetate …

Snow Globe Shaker Card from the North Pole

PolarBear

Because I have bought so many stamp sets during the last weeks, I wanted to make sure that I’m starting to use them. To remember which ones I’ve already stamped with and which ones still have to be used I separated my stamps into two stashes. And today I picked the ‘Cool Day’ Polar Bears from MFT to switch them from the ‘unused’ to the ‘used’ stash. The Layout idea is from the current MFT Sketch Challenge #241 and to be honest, I had a hard time with this one. Snow Globe Process First of all I stamped and colored …

Way too much fun with MFT stamps and stencils

MFT stamps color challenge No 26 - 1

There has to be a first, always. And today it’s the first time sharing a card that I intentionally made for a challenge. Today I’m playing along with the MFT stamps color challenge no. 26 and the Crafting by Design Summer Holidays challenge. The Background I started with preparing my shoe box to ‘color burst’ the background. To get the resist effect, I used the MFT Stencil Diagonal Bars on Canson XL watercolor paper. Than I squirtd some Ken Oliver color bursts on the background and misted everything carefully with water. To create the sun dawn effect, I used the …
