MFT Heart Art Card Kit Release!

January 23, 2019

The MFT Heart Art Card Kit and the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set & Die-namics are available for purchase now!!


I'd like to share a shaker card with you that I made using the Heart Art Card Kit and this month's mid-month free with $60 die, Mini Heart Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics.

To create this card, I die cut a Smooth White panel using the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and stamped the top half of it with the Scattered Hearts Background using Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink. I cut out a heart-shaped opening with the Mini Heart Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and stamped a greeting from the Heart Art stamp set onto the interior piece. I made a shaker using the Heart Trio Shaker Pouches and some mini heart confetti, adhered the panel to the card base, and added a frame cut from Ripe Raspberry CS to the shaker.
I added two Wild Wisteria panels cut with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics along the top and the bottom edges.

I cut Ripe Raspberry, Blu Raspberry, Lavender Fields, and Wild Wisteria CS into strips and put them together on a piece of thin paper to make a striped pattern. I die cut the "LOVE" out of it using the Double the Love Die-namics and adhered the L, V, and E to the panel.

MFT Heart Art Card Kit Countdown Day 2

January 22, 2019

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT January Card Kit and Mid-month Release countdown! 
Today I'm sharing a card with you that features the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set designed by Stacey Yacula, as well as the Double the Love Die-namics from the Heart Art Card Kit.

First I die cut a panel out of Neenah Solar White CS using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics. I stamped the bear image with Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink and masked the bear and the heart balloon, then stenciled the grass and the clouds. After I colored the images with Copic Markers, I die cut out the vertical "LOVE" with the Double the Love Die-namics and popped it up with foam sheet.
I stamped the sentiment and added three butterflies to finish off the card.

By the way, I tried some oval makeup brushes for stenciling and ink blending for the first time, and I'm loving them so far. I bought a cheap set of 10 brushes on Amazon. They pick up ink so well and blend inks so smoothly. I especially love that they don't make kind of rustling sound when they are rubbed on paper! (You know what sound I'm talking about? Blending foam pads often make it, especially when they are new. I don't really like it.) 


The Heart Art Card Kit and the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set & Die-namics will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10:00 am EST. You can also purchase the products included in the kit individually. 

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

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Heart Art Card Kit Countdown Day 1

January 21, 2019

The MFT January Card Kit Countdown has begun! This month's kit is called Heart Art, and of course, it features the LOVE theme. And also, a new stamp set from Stacey Yacula line, Joyful Heart Bears will be released at the same time with the card kit. These new products will be available for purchase on January 22 at 10:00 am EST.



(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
My card for today uses the Heart Art stamp set and the Double the Love Die-namics from the kit. 
I made my background pattern by stamping the heart arts on Smooth White CS using my MISTI. I used Cotton Candy and Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Inks to add ombre effects on the hearts. I trimmed the stamped card stock and added two cross-stitch lines along the top and the bottom edges using the Basic Stich Lines Die-namics. (I thought the cross-stitch lines looked like 'X's in a row.)

I die cut the "LOVE" out of the panel using the Double the Love Die-namics and adhered the panel and the inside pieces to the Ripe Raspberry card base. I white embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set on Gravel Gray CS, cut it out with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics, and adhered to the panel with thin foam squares. I added some watermelon jewels here and there to finish off the card.
