Soft and Serene: Thinking of You

We’re happy to have Lori Craig joining us for another guest post today!


I’ve been airbrushing like crazy lately. Unfortunately, I’ve also needed an extraordinary amount of thinking of you cards on hand. There is something about the yellow rose that always seems so serene to me so here, I’ve paired Copic Markers with Mona Pendelton’s beautiful Rose Builder Stencil and the Pierced Oval STAX Die-namics for a quick card. The background was a spritz of Copic Y32 through the Graduated Hexagon Stencil, and I’ve topped it off with a beautiful sentiment from my very favorite MFT sentiment set, Cheerful Blessings.


I consider kraft to be one of my signature stamping style staples and lucky for me, the MFT team caters to that with beautiful kraft papers and accents.

For this next card, I’ve paired Peaceful Wildflowers with that kraft love and another thinking of you sentiment from the same stamp set.

I started off by cutting two sets of the lavender die from Sweet Tooth card stock and coloring those two die cut pieces with Copic Marker (E42). Then I stamped the coordinating lavender image from Peaceful Wildflowers over the top with MFT Kraft Premium Dye Ink and inlaid them back to the negative space. The tag was cut from MFT Fishtail Flags STAX and stamped with MFT Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink. I finished off the look with an MFT Whip Cream button and Hemp Cord.

    The expanding recognition of Nintendo Wii is storming the gaming entire world with
    just about every moment that goes by. In this game, you pick
    out a breed of horse and customize it. In Cute Catz, you select a cat from
    the distinctive breeds, name it, give it loves and hates, and just take care of it just like the puppies in Pet Pupz.
