Sending Rainbows and Hearts - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 420

January 16, 2019

Hello! Today I'm going to share an inside shadow box card with you that I made inspired by this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC420).


As you see, I used the sketch as my starting point and went for a little liberal way. I made my scene using the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set and the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics. For the background, I stenciled the Sunrise Radiating Rays with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, constellated lots of tiny hearts cut with a die from the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics, and added some white dots with a gel pen.



I used Smooth White CS for my card base and kept the front clean to make the impact of the inside scene big.

MFT Color Challenge #109

January 10, 2019

Hello! Today I'm going to share a card that I made for the MFT Color Challenge 109.


I played with the newly released Hearts Entwined Die-namics and combined it with a cute bear image from the Friends Furever stamp set.

To create my background panel, I stamped a Smooth White panel with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background using Kraft Premium Ink and cut off the top and bottom edges with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics
I die cut the Hearts Entwined three times, one from Smooth White and twice from Kraft CS, and stacked them up, the white one on top. I also die cut the Hearts Entwined from Limelight, Blu Raspberry, and Sno Cone CS and embedded the inside pieces.

I added the bear image and the sentiment panel, then added some sequins to finish off the card.

We Have Serious Chemistry - Jan 2019 MFT & Friends

January 9, 2019

It's time to shop! The MFT January Release is live now!!


Today all the MFT DT members and some fabulous guest designers are sharing projects using the new release products for more inspiration for you.

I combined the Cute Chemists stamp set with the Scattered Hearts Background stamp. I stamped and heat embossed the Scattered Hearts Background on the front of a Smooth White card base, then blended Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks to create an ombre pink background. I stamped and colored the images on X-Press It Blending Card, cut them out with the matching dies, and adhered to the card base with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment to complete the card.

I was so happy to hear many people liked the wild hair of the boy chemist. If you need more inspiration for coloring his hair, search on Pinterest with the words 'Boy, Hair, Anime, Game'. ;)

Make sure you visit the MFT blog to see what the other DT members and guest designers have come up with for today! Leave a comment on each of their blogs for your chance to win a prize. You'll find more details on the MFT blog.

It's the final day of the MFT January Release Countdown. The new products that we've been showcasing this past five days will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10:00 am EST!


My card today features the Friendly Fox Die-namics. It's totally adorable!! I simply die cut each part from felt and assembled into the fox. (The felt colors used are listed below.) I used a Copic Marker (R20) for the rosy cheeks.
The patterned paper is from the Tiny Hearts Brights Paper Pack and it was cut with the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

The sentiment is from the new Sweet Nothings stamp set. I stamped and embossed on Milk Chocolate CS and cut out with the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I embellished the sentiment panel a couple of hearts cut with the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics.

Cutieasaurus Slider Card - MFT January Release Countdown Day 2

January 7, 2019

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT January Release Countdown. 
Today I'm sharing a slider card with you that uses the Cutieasaurus Stamp Set & Die-namics, the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics, and the Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics.

I made my background scene using the Radiating Rays Stencil, the Moutain High Die-namics, and the Snow Drifts Die-namics. Then I made a simple slider mechanism on the hill panel using the Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics, the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics, and a Slider Element. I stamped and colored the images from the Cutieasaurus stamp set on Neenah Solar White CS, cut them out with the matching dies, and adhered to complete the scene. When the tab is pulled, the male dinosaur moves forward and kisses the female dinosaur.



All the new products will be available for purchase on January 8 at 10:00 am EST.

Special Delivery of Love - MFT January Release Countdown Day 3

January 6, 2019

Welcome to Day 3 of the MFT January Release Countdown! 
Today I'm going to showcase the new So Much Love stamp set & Die-namics, as well as the Once Upon a Rainbow Die-namics and the Lots of Heart Stencil

First I stenciled the Lots of Heart on a Smooth White panel using Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, and Spun Sugar Distress Inks to create my background. Then I die cut the rainbow and clouds from Neenah Solar White CS, colored the rainbow with Copic Markers (B01, Y06, and R20), and adhered to the stenciled panel with thin foam squares.

The new PI girl was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and was colored with Copic Markers. I cut her out with the matching die and attached to the panel with foam tape.
I adhered the panel to the card base adding a panel of Peach Bellini CS, then added the sentiment panel and several sequins to finish off the card.

All the new products will be available for purchase on January 8 at 10:00 am EST

Cute Chemists - MFT January Release Countdown Day 4

January 5, 2019

Welcome to Day 4 of the MFT January Release Countdown! Today I'd like to share a card with you that features the new stamp set & Die-namics from Birdie Bronw line, Cute Chemists.

The Cute Chemists stamp set includes two chemist images - a girl and a boy, and my card for today features the boy. His funky hair is my most favorite part of this stamp set, and I couldn't help coloring it with unexpected and stylish colors. :D
The original boy doesn't wear glasses, but I stamped the glasses and added glossy accents to make him look like a funny mad scientist.

To create my background, I stenciled the English Brick Wall on a Smooth White panel with Kraft and Cement Gray Premium Dye Inks and made a laboratory desk to put on the flasks with Grout Gray and Gravel Gray CS

It looks that my sentiment panel was affected by the explosion. So it is tilted.
I added an explosive mark under the sentiment panel using the Distressed Patterns stamp set and accented the panel with an outlined heart cut with the new Lots of Hearts Outlines Die-namics.


All the new products will be available for purchase on January 8 at 10:00 am EST.

Sweet Treat Tags - MFT January Release Countdown Day 5

January 4, 2019

Hello! I hope your new year has got off to a good start!
The MFT January Release Countdown has begun and this month's release is packed full of LOVE themed products. Make sure you visit the MFT blog every day for the next five days to see the full reveal of the new products and for more inspiration from the DT.

Today I'm going to share cute treat tags with you that will be perfect for Valentine's Day gifts.

MFT has made another fun Window & Frame Die-namics and coordinating pouches! The Nugget Trio Shaker Pouches are sized to put in three Hershey's Nuggets chocolates, and the Nugget Label, Window, & Frame Die-namics includes dies to make perfectly-sized holes, frames, and wrapping labels for the pouches. I love the idea of wrapping chocolates with original labels. Those labels make your packaging look more professional!



I used the new Treat Tag Die-namics to make my tag bases, and the patterned papers are from the new Sweet Stack Paper Pack (So cute!). The sentiments are from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set, and they were stamped on the fishtails strips cut with a die from the Blueprints 33 Die-namics.

Here is the backside of my tag. I made a rip flap using a die included in the Nugget Label, Window, & Frame Die-namics, and heat embossed a phrase from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set. Maybe I love this the best in the set. Haha!
