It’s my first year joining this fun hop and it’s also my first year having two cats as family members! In June, we took two foster kitten in and they won our hearts in no time so they are staying for good and will be loved to pieces. 🙂

Here’s my card that I made for the hop! I discovered that I do not own nearly enough cat stamps yet, I definitely will have to change that! 😀

MFT Stamps – Halloween Box Card

Hello!

Do you celebrate Halloween? I actually don’t but when it comes to Halloween stamps, especially the cute kind, I am all in! 🙂

I recently bought the new “Outside The Box” dies and “Snow Drifts” add-on by My Favorite Things and startet using it right away! So here is the interactive box card I made! I also used the critters from the MFT Stamps “Frightfully Sweet” stamp set and the moon from “Space Explorer” as well as their “Our Town” border die for the background.

MY HALLOWEEN BOX CARD:

The polka dot paper is from my stash – as I went with a typical Halloween color scheme I picked it out for my card … I also used Distress Oxide Ink to give the town border a similar color.

With this card I would like to participate in these challenges:

MFT Stamps – Happy Camper 2 Ways (Guest Post)

Hi everyone!

I hope your week is off to a good start! Today I wanted to drop in again and say hi to my blog readers and show them two cards I made featuring one of the last Stacey Yacula sets for MFT Stamps! It’s called “Happy Camper” and once again it is so cute!

I made both cards for The Foiled Fox and you’ll find more detailed info about them on their blog!

Here’s a short overview for my owl card:

I ink blended a panel with Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. I then cut it down to 2 7/8 by 4 1/8 and matted it with a slightly bigger black panel.

TIPPS & TRICKS: For the no line coloring I used a light grey dye ink, watercolour markers and added a few details to the owl with colored pencils.

The matching sentiment is heat embossed in white.

OWL CARD:

The second card was already made in September so if you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen it. 🙂 The Happy Campers enjoy themselves sitting by a bonfire, playing the guitar and roasting marshmallows! So cozy!

TIPPS & TRICKS: The main panel is cut from Bristol paper. For the sky, I faded out a pink watercolor marker in one direction and dark blue marker from the top (other direction).
