MFT Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Release!

April 23, 2019

The new MFT Card Kit, Flower Silhouettes is available for purchase now!


Today I'm sharing another card using the kit for more inspiration for you.
(I'm sorry that this card uses some retired products. I made it before I knew those products were on the retiring list.)

I went with graphical and clean design for this card. I die cut three small panels from Smooth White card stock using the Mod Square STAX and the Mod Rectangle STAX Die-namics (Both of these Die-namics are retired.) and heat embossed the flowers from the Flower Silhouettes stamp set on them. I inked each panel with Distress Inks (Iced Spruce, Fossilized Amber, Fired Brick) and adhered to a Smooth White card base with foam tape.


I inked a scrap of Smooth White CS with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and cut the "HUGS" out of it using the Words for Friends Die-namics, which has also been retired.

Head on over to the MFT blog for more inspiration from the DT. You'll see the list of the DT members participating in today's launch post. Visit each of their blogs and leave a comment for your chance to win a prize!

MFT Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Countdown Day 2

April 22, 2019

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Countdown. Today I'm sharing another card I made using the kit, and it uses the Emboss Resist technique.

(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
To create my card, I die cut a panel out of Smooth White card stock using the Elegant Rectangle STAX Die-namics. After I stamped and white embossed some flower images from the Flower Silhouettes stamp set, I blended Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks over them. Once the inks dried, I stamped more flowers with Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink to add some depth to the scene. 

I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Blessings 2 stamp set with Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink. (I wanted to get the contrast between my ink blended background and the sentiment down a little.) I matted the stamped panel with a large Elegant Rectangle panel, added a Tickled Pink panel, and adhered to a Smooth White card base.


The new Flower Silhouettes Card Kit will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10:00 am EDT.

MFT Flower Silhouettes Card Kit Countdown Day 1

April 21, 2019

Hello everyone! The MFT April Card Kit Countdown has begun! This month's kit is called Flower Silhouettes, and it features beautiful, elegant, and delicate flower stamps.


(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
For my card today I made a foggy silhouette scene using the masking and the ink blending techniques. 
I masked off the bottom portion of a Smooth White card base and blended some Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Inks on the top portion. Once the inks dry, I stamped the flowers from the Flower Silhouettes Stamp Set in Steel Grey. (I used Steel Grey rather than black because I wanted to make my scene looked foggy.)

I inked a piece of Smooth White card stock with the same Distress Oxide Inks and cut out the "thanks" using the Simply Thanks Die-namics, which is this month's Mid-month Free with $60 die. I also cut the "thanks" twice from Smooth White CS and stacked them up, the inked one on top.

The new Flower Silhouettes Card Kit will be available for purchase on April 23 at 10:00 am EDT. You can also buy the Flower Silhouettes Stamp Set and the matching Die-namics separately.
Head on over to the MFT blog for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.
