Interactive Holiday Card - MFT October Vault Release

October 15, 2019

The MFT Vault has opened again! Several stamps and Die-namics are re-released with some updates, and this month, two BB stamp sets have returned!! Make sure you stop by the MFT blog for the full reveal of this month's Vault Release products and for more inspiration from the DT.

I made an interactive card using the Toasty Greetings stamp set & Die-namics for today.

The little penguin looks like he wants to catch the toasted marshmallow. Pull up the tab and see if he can get them. ;)

He tries again and again. Never give up! LOL!
To create my background, I blended Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks on watercolor paper and spritzed some white paint over it. Once the inks dry, I cut it with the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and made a simple slider mechanism using the Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics. I adhered the panel to a Smooth White card base with foam tape.

I stamped the images on No-Line Coloring CS with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink, colored with Copic Markers, and cut out with the matching dies. I adhered them to the panel, then added some shadow on the ground with a Copic Marker.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Blue Yonder CS and cut out with a die from the Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics. I added it to the panel with thin foam squares.

The October Vault Release is now available for purchase HERE

You Make My Holidays Jolly - October 2019 MFT & Friends

October 8, 2019

It's time to shop!! The MFT October Release is live and available HERE.

Today I'd like to share another holiday card with you that features the new Christmas sELFies stamp set, as well as the Snowy Scene Builder Die-namics.

I started my card by creating my background panel. I heat embossed the Snowfall Background on a panel of watercolor paper and blended some Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Saphire) over it to make a winter night sky. I die cut a polaroid frame out of it, adhered the panel to a card base, and added the house and trees cut with the Snowy Scene Builder Die-namics along the bottom edge.

I stamped a selfie image from the Christmas sELFies stamp set on No-Line Coloring CS with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I added it to the polaroid frame from the back and mounted on the background panel with foam tape, adding another frame cut from Smooth White CS. I heat embossed the "HAPPY HOLIDAYS", which is from the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set, on Wild Cherry CS, cut it with the Skinny Strips Die-namics, and added it to the frame. I stamped another sentiment on the background panel with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

Make sure you stop by the MFT blog as the DT members and several guest designers are sharing projects using some of the new products for your inspiration. You'll find how to win 1 of 2 $100 gift vouchers on the MFT blog. ;)

Thank you for stopping by. Happy shopping!

Snow Globe Shaker Card - Final Countdown To MFT 's October Release

October 7, 2019

It's the final day of the MFT October Release Countdown. All the new products we've been showcasing these past five days will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10 am EDT!

I have a shaker card to share with you today. It features the Classic Snow Globe Die-namics, the Classic Snow Globe Shaker Pouch, and the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set.

The Classic Snow Globe Die-namics includes dies to create a scene inside of the snow globe with a cute snowman and snowdrifts. I cut all the elements out of Smooth White CS and colored the hat, nose, and scarf with Copics. I also added a couple of trees cut with the Snowy Scene Builder Die-namics. For the background sky, I cut Berrylicious CS, inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, and added some falling snow using a white gel pen. My snow globe base was cut out of Gravel Gray CS, and I drew stripes and added a ribbon bow.

Oops! Snowstorm!! LOL. I put some Diamond Dust, Sparkling Clear Sequins, and Iridescent Confetti for my shaker elements.

The snowstorm has passed...phew...⛄
For my background panels, I used Red Hot and Tropical Teal CS and patterned paper from the Candy Land Paper Pack. The sentiment was stamped on Natural CS with Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink and cut out with the Skinny Strips Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see all the products revealed today and for more inspiration from the DT!

Thank you for visiting today. I'll be back tomorrow with another holiday card to celebrate the release. ;)
