Good evening everyone… I hope you are having a Great Tuesday!!! It’s almost time to start thinking about those Christmas cards and Neat & Tangled has just released some sets that are perfect for your Holiday crafting!! I’m using the Holiday Baking set and coordinating dies from the September Release.
I started by creating a top folding A2 size White card base with some Neenah Solar White. Then I cut the second piece using the large stitched rectangle die from MFT Blueprints #15 (retired). I used the MFT Inside Out Stitched Circle STAX die-namics to cut a circle in the panel. I added a piece of Doodlebug’s Milk and Cookies paper behind the circle so it would look like a Brick wall. I die cut a piece of Echo Park’s Fall is in the air 6×6 paper using the MFT Stitched Hillside die-namics to create a wood Floor look. Then I stamped the sentiment with some Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink in the lower corner and adhered the panel to the card front with Nuvo Deluxe adhesive.
I stamped the images onto some X-Press it Blending paper using Lawn Fawn Licorice Ink and then I colored them in with Copics markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images it out and I adhered them in the circle with some foam tape and tape runner.
My card was complete and I manage to get a little drop of red ink on the edge (don’t you hate when that happens?) so I added some Neat & Tangled Peppermint Stick Sequins. I also added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen Glitter in Clear to parts of the images.
I used the following Copics:
B21,B23, B26, G07,YG03,YG17, C00, C1,C3, 0, W0, W1, W4, W6, W2, E31, E35, E34, E25, E74, E23, E70, E71, E77, R24, R27, R29, R20 & R89.

I’m using some Fun new products from My Favorite Things today for a Birthday card sure to make the recipient SMILE!
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and I added die cut the panel with the MFT Blueprints #27. Then I added some Mustard Seed Distress ink to the Background. I smooshed the pad onto my craft mat and spritzed the ink with some water. Then I smooshed the paper into the ink until I had the coverage I wanted. I heat set the panel with a heat tool and then I added a few splatters of water and picked up the excess with a paper towel.
Then I die cut Smile from the center of the Panel using the Double the Smiles Die-namic from MFT. I adhered some washi tape behind the panel and then I die cut Smile three more times from some Black Licorice cardstock. I inlaid the Black die cut Smile and then added a second and third layer as well. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110 lb cut to A2 Size, then I added some Fun Foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card front and set it aside.
I stamped a sentiment from the coordinating All Smiles stamp set from MFT and used the Essential Fishtail Sentiments Strips Die-namics to cut it out. Then I adhered it under SMILE on the front of the card with some foam adhesive. I stamped the little bears from the Adorable Bitty Bears set from MFT onto some Bristol Smooth as well and I colored them in with Distress Ink Markers and a Nuvo Aqua Brush.
I used the coordinating die-namics to cut the images out and I adhered them to the card with Foam tape. These little bears are a must have, they coordinate well with any word set and they are perfect for all occasions.
