Shaker Holiday Tags - MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints

November 22, 2016

For this month's MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints DT challenge, we are challenged to create holiday tags featuring Blueprints Die-namics.


I made a trio of shaker tags using the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics and shaker pouches. The shaker pouches make it easy to mass produce FUN shaker tags! 
The sentiments are from the Gift Tag Greetings stamp set. To die cut my confetti, I used the Merry Christmas Centerpieces Die-namics (for the trees and red circles) as well as a confetti die included in the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics (for the smaller white circles). The bows were cut with a die from the Blueprints 26 Die-namics.




Make sure to stop by the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today. You'll see a lot of fabulous ideas for your holiday gift tags using MFT products.

Magic of the Season - MFT WSC 307

November 16, 2016

Today I'm sharing a Christmas card with you that I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC 307). 


As you see, the sketch is super simple and versatile! I decided to create a magical Christmas scene for the larger rectangle panel in the sketch.

First I stamped the front of my card base with the Bold Diagonal Stripes Background using In the Buff Premium Dye Ink
I put a Santa hat from the Beast Friends stamp set on dragon's head using the masking technique. I also stamped the trees using the masking technique, colored them with Copics, and cut them out with scissors. I put them aside and cut a panel from Smooth White CS using the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I daubed some After Midnight Premium Dye Ink and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink on the panel using a blending tool and a sponge dauber, and splattered some white ink over it to create a snowy night background.


I made a snowy hill using Smooth White CS and the Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics and adhered it to the inked panel. After the images were adhered, some shades were added with Copics.
The sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland stamp set and it was white embossed on a Wild Cherry panel. I added a couple of gold star sequins on the top of the trees to finish off the card.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. I hope you'll play along with us this week. ;)

MFT November Card Kit Release

The new Kitschy Kitchen Card Kit is available for purchase in the MFT store now!

I'd like to share another card that I made using the Kitschy Kitchen Card Kit for more inspiration for you. 

I chose "In the Box" look for my card today - I just added the Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut my main panel and Black Licorice Premium Dye ink to stamp the sentiment.
After I stamped the sentiment and the dotted zig zag borders from the You Bake Me Happy stamp set, I added a Bubblegum panel and a Ripe Raspberry panel underneath the main panel. I stamped and die cut out the images and attached them to the panel with foam tape. I stamped the lemons in two colors (Daffodil and Orange Fizz) with the help of a MINI MIST tool.
