Santa & Chimney Slider Card - MFT & Friends Oct 2018

October 16, 2018

It's time for the MFT and Friends feature on the MFT blog. Today MFT design team and some fabulous guests are sharing more projects featuring the most recent release

I made a fun interactive card using the Sassy Santa stamp set & Die-namics along with the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics.

When the tab on the top is pulled up, Santa goes down into the chimney.

The story doesn't end here. It continues to the inside. ;)

Watch the video below to see how I made this card. Click HERE if you prefer watching on YouTube.

Ideas for Perfect Poinsettia - MFT Tips & Tricks

October 11, 2018

It's time for a Tips & Tricks feature over at the MFT blog. Today I'd like to share a few ideas for using the Perfect Poinsettia Die-namics

I know that red poinsettia is the most popular in the winter holiday season. But I like white poinsettias and pink poinsettias, too. While red ones are gorgeous and have a huge impact, white ones look elegant and pink ones are so pretty. Right?

Here I used patterned paper to get a casual look. I also added a little bow and a sequin to the center. These could be a cute accent on a gift wrapping for children.

For the left one, I cut a couple of petal pieces out of Primitive Cream CS that I stamped the Christmas Background with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I distressed the edges of the petals with Tea Dye Distress Ink and added some Champagne Stickles to the center. After I assembled the poinsettia, I added Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents for a frosty effect.

For the right one, I die cut the petals out of Wild Cherry CS and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. It adds a more dimensional look to the flower.
The links to the other products used are below at the bottom of this blog post.

I made a short video showing how I shaped a poinsettia. Actually, I thought that I should have done valley folds on the petals for more realistic look after seeing all the fabulous creations by the DT. But I decided to share this anyway because I think this technique works for any other die cut flowers. (Click HERE to watch the video on YouTube.)

Love You Furever - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 406

October 10, 2018

Hello! Today I popped in to share a card with you that I made for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (MFT WSC406).

I twisted the original sketch a little - turned the rectangle elements into circles.

I used the Circle Trio Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics to make the openings. The little scenes behind the kitties were made by stenciling and ink blending, using the Grassy Edges Stencil. I also added the flowers from the Love You Furever stamp set.
The kitties were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink, colored with Copics, and cut out with the matching dies. I put them into each cell after adhering the top panel with foam tape.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Coral Crush panel cut with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. You'll have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher by joining in the challenge! :)
