You’re Going Places!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello everyone.. It’s Holly here today. I hope your week is starting off great! Today I have a fun slider card featuring the Adorable Up in the Air set from My Favorite Things and the coordinating dies.

I started by creating a White A2 size card base and then I created a cloud background using the MFT Stitched Cloud Edges to create a stencil and some Salty Ocean Distress Ink. Then I created another cloud background on a piece of White card stock that I die cut with the MFT Blueprints 29. Then I created a scene with some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics set. Then I die cut a channel into the panel using the MFT Slider Channel Die set.

I stamped all the images using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto some X-Press It Blending card stock and colored the images in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating Dies to cut them out. I adhered some of the images directly onto the scene. I created a slider for the Larger Balloon with the Channel die and the small circles from the MFT Surf & Turf Die set and three of the MFT Spin & Slide Discs.  You can find many videos on YouTube on how to use these discs. Once I had the slider all set up I attached the panel to the front of the card with some foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a strip of White card stock and used one of the banners from the MFT Blueprints 27 using VersaFine Black ink. I adhered t with some additional foam tape as well.

I used the following Copics to color the images:

Puppy: E70, E74 Baskets: E23, E25 Banner: BV13, BV17 Balloons: R24, R29, YR12, YR07, Y13, Y18, YG03, YG25, B24, B28. Tree: YG25, G07 House: E43, E44, E23, BG01, C2

You are Mermazing!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi everyone .. It’s Holly here today and I have a fun card for you using products from Neat & Tangled. This Mermazing set was a must have when I saw the release it was in. And the Making Waves Die set coordinated perfectly with it for a unique background.


I started by Die cutting the Making Waves die from some Watercolor Paper and a piece of White card stock. I added some Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks to the Watercolor portion to create the waves and the sky. Then I added some water drops and dabbed them off with a paper towel. After the pieces were dry I added them to the White stitched circle with some foam tape. Then I adhered the circle piece to the front of a top folding A2 size card base. I stamped the Mermaid image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored it in with Copics. I used BG10, BG11, BG13 & BG18 for the tail. E50, E51, E21 & R20 for the Skin. V12, V15 & V17 for the top and Y13, Y15 & Y18 for the Hair.


I die cut the image using the coordinating dies and then I stamped the Sentiment banner onto some White card stock as well and used the die cut. I adhered both of them to the center image with some foam tape. Then I created a small banner and stamped “you are” and tucked it just behind the mermaid image.


I wanted a little touch of shimmer and sparkle to my card so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Mermaid tale and top. And then I added some of the Neat & Tangled Oceans Wave mixed Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today… Have a great Weekend!

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and I have a fun card using the newest Friends for All Seasons:Fall Set from WPlus9.


I started out with a piece of  Watercolor Paper and I die cut the Tree Border Die from WPlus9 about 3/4 of the way down the panel. Then I used some Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade to add color to the two pieces. I adhered the two pieces back together and adhered it to a Top Folding card base. Then I die cut a Frame from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames from some Wood Grain paper. I adhered the Frame over the card front with some Liquid Glue.


Then I stamped the bear and Balloon images from the Friends for All Seasons: Fall set from WPlus9 onto some Watercolor paper and colored them in with Zig Clear Color Real Brush Markers. I used Beige & Blush for the Bear and Red for the Balloons. Once they were dry I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sun image from the same set directly onto the card front with some VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I added some Yellow to the Sun with the Yellow Zig Pen. I like to add color to just the inside edges of my images with the Zig Markers and then using a slightly damp paintbrush I move the color around filling the image in. Once it’s dry I go back and add a little more color with the marker and just let it dry.


I die cut two clouds from the WPlus9 Happy Birds Die set using the same Watercolor paper and adhered them directly onto the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 Friends for All Seasons: Spring set in Black ink as well. I attached the Bear and Balloons with some Foam Tape and this completed my card. I really like how the Friends for All Seasons sets coordinate with each other. You can find all of these sets in the store.
