MFT Say It in a Starburst Card Kit Release

August 20, 2019

The new MFT card kit, Say It in a Starburst is now available for purchase!


For today's card, I combined the kit with the Flutter of Butterflies - Lace Die-namics. I went with a collage style and used the Starburst Die-namics to give a butterfly a circular backdrop. 


I partially stenciled the Mini Staggered Circles on the background panel using Blue Breeze Premium Dye Ink to add subtle texture. The fishtail strip panel was cut with the Starburst Sentiment Strips Die-namics, which is this month's mid-month Free with $60 Die-namics, and I stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background. The leaves were cut out of Sour Apple CS and Translucent Vellum with the Grand Greenery and Fab Foliage Die-namics. I die cut two butterflies from Smooth White and Peach Bellini CS. I inked around the edges of the white butterfly with Peach Bellini Premium Dye Ink and added a little Glitter Drops.

I put all the die-cut elements together, stamped the sentiment, and added several sequins to finish off the card.

MFT Say It in a Starburst Card Kit Countdown Day 1

August 18, 2019

It's time to begin the countdown to MFT August Card Kit Release!


The new kit is called Say It In a Starburst, and the stamp set and Die-namics included are so COOL! Visit the MFT blog for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.

I made a pair of quick cards for today. It took me less than 10 minutes to finish each card.

(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)

I was inspired by an atomic starburst pattern I found on Pinterest. I stamped a starburst from the Say It in a Starburst Stamp Set with Cement Gray Premium Dye Ink and added some random dots using the Color Drops Stamp Set. For the blue one, I used Blue Bleeze and Blue Yonder Premium Dye Inks to stamp the dots, and I adhered the panel to a Blue Yonder card base. For the peach one, I used Peach Bellini and Coral Crush Inks, and the card base is Coral Crush.


The sentiments in the Say It in a Starburst Stamp Set are designed in a simple font but have a big impact! They fit in the space provided by the starburst image perfectly. I used my Mini MISTI for perfect positioning.

The new kit will be available for purchase on August 20 at 10 am EDT.
Make sure you stop by the MFT blog for more info about the kit and leave a comment on today's blog post for your chance to win a prize!

You Make My Heart Leap - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 450

August 15, 2019

Hi everyone! It's time for a new MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! (WSC 450) 


I used the Cross-Stitch Tag and the Scallop Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics for the tag shape element in the sketch. I made a cloudy sky background on the tag using the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Distress Inks (Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose), then added a trampoline and a rhino from the Hop, Flip, and a Jump Stamp Set.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Coral Crush CS and cut out with the Skinny Strips Die-namics. It was added to the tag along with a twine bow and several crystal gems.
I adhered the tag to a card base which I stamped with the Scattered Hearts Background.



Actually, I added a wobble spring behind the rhino for a little fun. It's an easy way to add motion to a card. :)
