MFT August Card Kit Release

August 23, 2017

It's time to shop! The X's and O's Card Kit and the Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set & Die-namics are available for purchase now!


I'd like to share a shaker card that I made using the Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set & Die-namcis.

I went with a pastel color scheme, It's unusual for a Halloween card though.
I made a cloudy sky using the Cloud Stencil with Bubblegum and Grapesicle Premium Dye Inks, and framed it with a Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frame.

I used some Queen & Co. Topping Diamonds (so pretty!) and Sparkling Clear Stars sequins for my shaker. The sentiment was stamped with Safety Orange ink to match with the pastel colors.
The patterned paper is from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels paper pack and it was cut with a die from the Blueprints 27 Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT blog for more inspiration from the fabulous DT. Don't forget to leave a comment on each of their blogs for your chance to win a prize! :)

Thank you for stopping by! Happy shopping!

Inks: Premium Dye Ink - Bubblegum, Grapesicle, Safety Orange

MFT August Card Kit Countdown Day 2

August 22, 2017

It's Day 2 of the MFT August Card Kit Countdown. The X's and O's Card Kit will be available for purchase TONIGHT at 9:00 pm EDT!

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I paired the X's and O's Card Kit with the Adorable Elephants stamp set and made a shaker card.


The Square Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and Square Shaker Pouches make it pretty easy to create a shaker card. I die cut X's and O's with the Tic Tac Toe Die-namics and used them as shaker components along with some sequins.


I added a cross-stitch line to the top edge of my main panel using the Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics to add more X's. 
I sponged some Bubblegum ink behind the elephant and added the tiny hearts for more love.


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

MFT August Card Kit Countdown Day 1 and...Exciting News!!

August 21, 2017

It's time to begin the countdown to the MFT August Card Kit Release! The new kit is called X's and O's, and it is SUPER CUTE & FUN! It will be available for purchase on August 22nd at 9:00 pm EDT in the MFT store. 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.


And also... I'm extremely excited today because I can finally share this awesome news with you!!! The Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set is coming back!! 
The Witch Way Is the Candy was retired awhile back, but MFT has decided to revive it with a lot of requests from customers! I'm really really happy that my old set is still loved so much and MFT listens to the voice of their customers. Thank you so much for your support to my Birdie Brown stamp line, and I'm grateful to MFT for making this happen!
The stamp set and Die-namics will be available for purchase at the same time with the X's and O's Card Kit.



The images in the new Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set are almost the same with the retired one, but there are minor changes here and there - like the line weight of the cat's nose, cat's ears, the stripes on witch's tights, and so on. The font of the sentiments has been changed and a few new sentiments have been added. There is no change on the shape of the matching dies. But the new dies are open inside, not solid.

Now, I need to get into today's cards. (Finally, LOL.)
My first card features the X's and O's Card Kit and the Huge LOVE Die-namics, which is the new free with $60 die.

The new Tic Tac Toe board shapes included in the kit fit in the Square Shaker Pouches perfectly. And the Mixed Heart Pieces are so cute and versatile! 
Here is a close up photo of the Tic Tac Toe board showing you its thickness.

The "LOVE" was die cut out of striped paper that I made using card stocks included in the kit (Razzle Berry, Poppy, and Wild Cherry). 


My second card uses the Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set.

To create the background, I cut a panel of Blueberry CS, inked it with Nightshift Blue ink, and spattered some white ink over it. I used the Birch Trees and the Solid Birch Trees Die-namics for the wood scene.

I added the tiny spots beside the embossed sentiment using Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ripened Pumpkin).

Thank you so much for your comments and advice on my first tutorial video. Your warm words encouraged me! 
This time I filmed the process of my coloring on the witch. I don't think I'm an expert on coloring with Copic Markers. You'll see how many times I go back and forth and how long it takes me to finish one image, then you will understand why I say I'm not an expert. LOL!
