Have you already prepared your shopping list for the MFT September Release? It's the final countdown day and the release will go live tomorrow, at 10am EST.

Today I couldn't resist to play with the cute dinos from Dino-mite Christmas.

I've recently seen a similar illustration on Internet and I couldn't resist to make my own version, using this super cute dino from the stamp set.

I firstly stamped the image on a piece of Transotype Perfect Coloring paper and I sketched the background. Then, I colored everything with this fun color combo: red, blue-green and gold. I also colored the dino in blue, but I wasn't happy with the result. Moreover, I didn't like the one-layer scene, it was quite confusing without the small white border around the dino. That's why I stamped again the image and I re-colored it in red.

I die cut the small element and I placed him exactly on the previous one and...I loved the card much more! But before adhering him, I die cut the background scene with the second largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Set1 and I stamped the sentiment in the bottom part.

To complete the card, I added a 4,25"x5,5" of the newest Keep Me in Stitches patterned paper to create a small frame around the card. I really hope you will like it!

Hi friends and happy Monday!

Today I have another card to show you, featuring some of the newest Hello Bluebird products!

The Hello Bluebird September release is epic! There are ten lovely new Clear Stamp Sets (nine with matching Companion Dies) and eleven new Stand-Alone Dies. The release will be live on September 8th at 7pm Mountain Time.

My card features the newest Tree Neighbors, which is a giant 6"x8" stamp set, filled with the most adorable critters!

All the cool animals are hanging out at the neighborhood tree! Join your Tree Neighbors at the local woodland “high-rise” tree. Cute foxes, a friendly bear, an adorable possum who hangs from a tree branch… This set has it all! All of the critters and elements in this stamp set are designed to work with both the included tree stamp and the newest High Rise Tree Scene stand-alone die.

Anyway, I wanted to pair some of those critters with the previous released Oak Tree Scene die creating a square scene. I firstly stamped the critters on some Neenah Solar White cardstock and I colored them using Copics (see below for combos); I die cut them with their coordinating dies.

I then moved to the background, which I made on some Neenah Solar White cardstock too. The square piece measures 5,5"x5,5". I ink blended it using some Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Warm Lipstick and I also splattered some water to create a little bit of texture. I die cut the tree trunk from the Oak Tree Scene die using some Ranger Woodgrain Paper, which is perfect for "wooden" object and I ink blended using Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo. To complete the ground, i die cut the green using the Grassy Knoll die.

I then framed the scene using the Gallery Frame #7 die (which is a little smaller than 5,5"x5,5") and I arranged all my elements on the panel.

To complete the card, I die cut the word HI using the newest Knightley LC Large Alpha die, layering a brown piece under the white one. The smallest sentiment comes from the Typed Everyday Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like my inspiration, head over to the Hello Bluebird Blog to see many others and for a chiance to win a $50 Hello Bluebird gift certificate to the shop. You have until 4:00 PM (MST) on Wednesday the 8th to leave your comments on their blog.

Happy Saturday friends! Can you believe we are halfway to the MFT September Release Day? It will be live on September 7th, at 10am EDT.

Today I created a kitty card, featuring the newest super adorable Meowy Christmas stamp set.

If you are a cat lover, you won't resist this cute set, with so many Christmas kitties.

I created a super simple desing, using one of my favorite Distress Combo for Christmas cards.

I firstly took an A2 piece of Smooth White paper and I masked the bottom part using some post it tape; I carefully ink blended the background, using regular Distress in Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Ground Espresso. I kept layering ink to get a really smooth look and when I was happy with the result I splattered some Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolors to create some texture.

While the watercolor was drying, I stamped the cats and the tree on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and I colored everything with copic markers (you can find the list below). I then die cut everything using coordinating dies.

I also die cut the background panel, using the second largest Stitched Rectangle Set2 and I gold heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom.

I attached the die cut parts to create the scene and to complete the card, I added some Glossy Accents on the decorations. I also matted the panel using some Gold Sparkle cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by! I really hope you will like it and be sure to check the MFT blog for a chance to win a 75$ shopping spree... And for further DT inspirations too!
