MFT Die-namics Design - 'Tis the Season for Tags

November 24, 2015

Can you believe that it's the last week of November? Christmas is coming before you know! So, for this month's Die-namics Design, we are showing you some ideas for Christmas tags using MFT Die-namics!

I created a set of shaker tags that look like Christmas ornaments.
The tag base was cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 4, and the frame was cut with Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics. The mint candies were made with Candy Jars Die-namics, Smooth White CS, Wild Cherry CS, Limelight CS, and Blu Raspberry CS. (Adhesive Sheets made this process easy!) I also put some six-pointed stars cut from Silver Sparkle CS using Merry Christmas Centerpieces Die-namics. The sentiment from Gift Tag Greetings stamp set was stamped in Chocolate Brown on a Smooth White banner cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 4. I added a bow cut with Creative Clips Die-namics on top of the shaker frame.

WSC 255

November 18, 2015

It's time for a new sketch challenge (WSC255) over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog!

Here is this weeks sketch.

As you see I rotated the sketch upside down and added an arch window instead of the rectangle panel.

I stamped a Tickled Pink panel with Sketched Chevron Background and Tickled Pink Pigment ink. I cut out an arch window from it using Stitched Arch STAX Die-namics, then added a Kraft frame after I applied a piece of acetate to the window. For the background panel I stamped and white embossed several snowflakes, which is from Hug in a Mus stamp set, and daubed some Summer Splash Dye ink over them using an ink blending tool.

For my shaker elements I put Tu Tu Pink Prills and Minnie Pearls Prills as well as a few shades of light blue sequins.
The mug was made with Hot Cocoa Cups die-namics, Whip Cream CS, Chocolate Brown CS, and Poppy CS. I daubed a little In the Buff Dye ink around the bottom of the mug. The sentiment from Hug in a Mug stamp set was stamped and white embossed on a Chocolate Brown panel cut with Blueprints 20.

MFT Creative Challenge - Contemporary Christmas Colors

November 17, 2015

For this month's MFT Creative Challenge, we are challenged to create a Christmas card/project using a non-traditional color scheme. I'm not so good at color challenges. But I like this kind of challenge, because it gives me an opportunity to try something I usually don't do! :)

I completely went out from my usual style, and even used non-Christmas themed stamp sets for today's card.

I cut out a Primitive White panel with Blueprints 24. I stamped the sentiment from Joyous Christmas Sentiments stamp set with Tickled Pink Pigment ink and Tropical Teal Pigment ink, with the help of MISTI. Then I masked the sentiment area and stamped the leaves from Desert Bouquet stamp set and the berries from Fall Florals stamp set. The tiny dots were added with a white gel pen.

Make sure you stop by the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today!
