Happy Thanksgiving, Craft Sales, and an Introduction to Our New Addition!

 Hello Crafters! 

Long time no blog. We've been quite busy around here this month. 

First things first Happy Thanksgiving! 
I hope you all are having an amazing day with loved ones genuinely enjoying the blessings in your life. I know I am. 

Several small businesses are having amazing holiday sales starting today through the weekend. 
The majority of these businesses are run by people I know who are providing our crafting industry with new amazing products while they also provide for their families. 
Added bonus, we all get some fabulous money saving deals while supporting them. 

Full Disclosure: 
These are affiliate links. 
What does that mean? 
I get a small percentage of the money made from the company. this money helps me to keep creating and making more videos. The money comes from the company side of the sale not the customer side. Which means it does not cost you any extra. I appreciate the support. Thank you! 

This is what I have posted so far on the Sales Page. I will be updatingthe Sales Page as more sales become available.

MFT September 2021 Release: Lantern Night Scene Christmas Carols

 Hello Crafters! 

It's been quite a while since I posted mostly because between working full time and running businesses some corners had to be cut. I'm still very active on Youtube and Instagram so I hope you'll follow me there. 

If you've been desperately missing my blog posts please leave me a comment and let me know. If there's enough interest I'll try to make it more of a priority in the future :) 

Today I'm here to share a card using the new My Favorite Things Release and I'm super excited about it! The entire release is adorable and you can check it out here



I chose to use the new SY Christmas Carols to do a little scene building. Ya'll know how I do. I couldn't leave any of these cuties out so my card got a full choir!


I created the background using distress inks because it saves a ton of copic ink and it gives a beautiful blend. Be careful to leave youtself a little halo of white in between your yellow light and blue night or you'll end up with green in your sky. I added some heat embossed snowflakes in white along with some perfect pearls and white paint splatters to create stars. 


I stamped the ground not once but twice. the second time I used second generation stamping to give a lighter impression. I then added some dimension with my copic markers. this allowed me to fade off the stones towards the front of the card. 


I stamped and colored all my cute critters with copic markers before cutting them out with their coordinating dies. I adhered them to my card using various levels of glue and foam tape. In order to blend them into the scene more I colored my white outline from the dies to blend in with the night scene. 

Check out the video below to watch it all come together! 


Thanks for stopping by!
