MFT October Card Kit Countdown Day 2

October 17, 2017

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT Snowflake Splendor Card Kit Countdown. The new kit will be available for purchase tonight at 9:00 pm EDT!


(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
Today I paired the kit with the Happy Pawlidays stamp set. To create my background panel, I inked a Spearmint panel with Spearmint Premium Dye ink, spattered it with white ink, then cut it with the Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics. I cut two more Snow Drifts Cover-Ups out of Spearmint CS, stacked them on a Smooth White card base, and inlaid the inked interior pieces. I gold embossed a sentiment from the Happy Pawlidays stamp set on one of the interior pieces.

The snowflakes were cut with the Layered Snowflakes Die-namics. It contains 10 snowflake dies and you can create a variety of snowflakes by mixing and matching these dies! You can see a few examples in the graphic below, but mines are different from any of them. ;) You'll see more examples on the DT blogs. (The links to the DT blog posts are on the MFT blog.)

MFT October Card Kit Countdown Day 1

October 16, 2017

It's Day 1 of the MFT October Card Kit Countdown. This month's kit is all about snowflakes!! It is really beautiful and versatile. I'm sure you'll love it! 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.

My card for today features the Snowflake Splendor stamp set.

First I cut a Smooth White panel using the Triple Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge Die-namics and stamped three large snowflakes. Then I added a pierced line on top of each snowflake using the Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics so they look like hanging down from the top. I stamped the smaller snowflakes, added a border of Silver Sparkle card stock, and adhered to a Bubblegum card base with foam tape. I also added a die-cut "joy", which I slightly sponged with Summer Splash Premium Dye ink.
I added some tiny silver dots with Silver Moondust Glitter Drops to finish off the card.

The new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit will be available for purchase tomorrow at 9:00 pm EDT

Make a Snow Globe with Die-cuts - MFT Release Replay

October 10, 2017

It's time for MFT Release Replay DT Challenge. Today the MFT DT is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present!

It's always so fun adding some handmade decorations to your Christmas tree or your cozy room. Right? With the new Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics, you can create cute snow globes easily. 



I made my snow globes using the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics and cheap jars that I found at a 100 yen store, and used Diamond Dust and Clear Iridescent Mix Jewels for the snow. Since these are made with paper, I didn't put any fluid. So you can't see the snow falling down slowly. But I think that a little snowy scene enclosed in a jar itself is so cute. :)

Here is a trick of the suspended sentiment panel. I adhered all the die cut elements to a panel of acetate.


I have a video showing how to create this snow globe. Click HERE to watch it on YouTube.  (I got a new light and a video editor. So I think the quality of my video has been improved.)
