MFT September Card Kit Countdown Day 2

September 19, 2017

It's Day 2 of the MFT Snow Globe Card Kit Countdown. The new kit will be available for purchase at 9:00 pm EDT tonight!

Today I combined the kit with some previously released products.

I created a scene in my snow globe using the Polar Bear Pals stamp set & Die-namics and Icebergs Die-namics. And I made a word window using the Stitched Oval Word Windows Die-namics and white embossed the sentiment on a panel of Sour Apple CS.

Of course I couldn't help using the Diamond Dust for my shaker! I also added some pearls as I wanted to add more movement. I recommend to apply some anti static powder to the inside of shaker pouches so the Diamond Dust won't stick here and there.


Head on over to the MFT blog for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT!

MFT September Card Kit Countdown Day 1

September 18, 2017

The MFT September Card Kit Countdown has begun! The new kit will be available for purchase TOMORROW at 9:00 pm EDT. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog today and tomorrow for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.


The new kit is called Snow Globe. It contains everything you need to create adorable snow globe shaker cards! 

I made a square card for today. Almost all the supplies I used are included in the kit - except the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics which I used to cut the main panel, small pearls, and some other basic supplies. 
The scene in my snow globe was made with the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics. You can cut a snowman (with accessories), a house, a couple of trees, and snow drifts. Everything is perfectly sized to fit in the Snow Globe Die-namics and Dome Shaker Pouches!

It might hard to see in the first photo above, but I put some Diamond Dust for my shaker. Isn't it an essential element for a snow globe? Of course it is included in the kit. :)

Now head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have made for today!

Pop-Up Thanks Cards - MFT Release Replay

September 12, 2017

Today the MFT DT is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present!

I'm sharing three ideas on how to use the new Pop-Up Alphabet Die-namics with a tutorial video.
I used the Modern Trees stamp set & Die-namics, the Puffy Clouds Die-namics, and the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics to embellish my cards. The other supplies I used are listed at the bottom of this blog post. 

#1: Simple Pop-Up Word Card
You can make this type of cards with the Partial Die-cutting technique. But, the Pop-Up Alphabet Die-namics makes the process pretty easy since these dies don't cut the bottom of the letters, just add score lines.


#2: Pop-Up Word Fold Card
Hmmm....I'm not sure about this ↑ name. Please let me know if you have a good idea on how I should call this type of card.
It looks very similar to #1 card when you only see the front of the card. But, the top of the alphabets are not cut, so the word "THANKS" continues in the inside.


#3: Surprise Pop-Up Card
This is a basic pop-up card. The die-cut word is concealed in the inside. 



See how I made these cards in the video below. Or click HERE to watch it on YouTube.
