You're Incredible! - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 424

February 13, 2019

Hello! A new sketch challenge is up on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog and I'd like to share a card with you that was inspired by the sketch.



To create this card, I cut a panel of Smooth White CS with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and stamped the top half of it with the Radiating Halftone Background using Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink. Then I stamped the cityscape image from the You're Super stamp set in Black Licorice and Cement Gray using my MISTI. I masked the top half portion and daubed some Weathered Wood Distress Ink and added the tiny dots with a Copic Marker for the ground.

I die cut out a stitched circle from the center of the panel using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and popped it up with foam tape adding a Steel Grey mat cut with the Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics.
The super cat and speech bubbles were stamped on Neenah Solar White CS with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and were colored with Copic Markers. I cut them with the matching dies and adhered to the panel with thin foam squares.

Party Penguins - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 423

February 6, 2019

Hello! A new sketch challenge is up on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog (WSC 423) and I'm going to share my take on the sketch with you.


The chubby penguins from the newly released Party Penguins stamp set are perfect for the sketch! I simply stamped them using my MISTI, added some details to their party hats with a white gel pen, and added the rosy cheeks with a Copic Marker (E95). I randomly stamped the tiny stars in various colors and added some sparkling spots with Champagne Stickles for a festive feel.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Persimmon CS and cut out with a die from the Blueprints 31 Die-namics

It's time to shop! The MFT February new products have been launched!


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

My card for today uses the Birth-Yay stamp set & Die-namics and the Card-sized Confetti Stencil set
First I blended Lemon Chiffon and Lemon Drop Premium Dye Inks on a Smooth White panel to make an ombre background. I stenciled the confetti using Worn Lipstick, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, then cut off the bottom portion of the panel using a die from the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics.

I made a double slider mechanism on the panel using the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics and covered it with the stacked animals image from the Birth-Yay stamp set. Watch an animated GIF below to see what surprise happens when the tab is pulled down.

Have a Spectacular Birthday - MFT February Release Countdown Day 1

February 5, 2019

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

I have a cute interactive card to share with you today. It features the Spectacular Birthday stamp set & Die-namics.

I stenciled the spotlight on a Boysenberry panel using the In the Spotlight Stencil and Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, then spattered some green and yellow paint over it to create my festive background. I made a slider mechanism along the bottom edge of the panel using the Spin & Slider Channels Die-namics, Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics, and Slider Elements. I covered the slider channel with a panel of patterned paper after I attached the dog and the white bear to the slider elements with thin strips of acetate. I adhered the bear to the center and added the sentiment panel cut with the Oval Word Window Frames Die-namics
When the tab is pulled out and pushed back, the dog and the white bear kiss the little bear one after the other as you see below.

Birthday Bear & Friends - MFT February Release Countdown Day 2

February 4, 2019

It's Day 2 of the MFT February Release Countdown. Today I'm sharing another birthday card with you that features the Birthday Bear & Friends stamp set & Die-namics along with this month's Free with $60 die, Birthday Wishes.



For my background, I blended Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks and spattered it with some red and white paint. 
The adorable critters from the Birthday Bear & Friends stamp set were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and cut out with the matching dies. Isn't that rainbow layer cake cute? :D:D


I'm so in love with the Birthday Wishes Die-namics! Beautiful script! I cut it twice from Smooth White CS and layered for a little thickness. I added a little shimmer to it with a Wink of Stella pen.

All the new products will be available for purchase on February 5 at 10:00 am EST. Just two more days!

Birthday Cake Die-namics - MFT February Release Countdown Day 3

February 3, 2019

It's Day 3 of the MFT February Release Countdown. We're halfway to the release day and still have so many gorgeous products to share with you!

My Card today features the Birthday Cake Die-namics and the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-namics
I stamped and gold embossed the Snowfall Background on the front of the Ripe Raspberry card base, then cut out the opening with the tag die from the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-namics. The sentiment is from the Big Birthday Sentiments stamp set and it was white embossed on a Lavender Fields panel cut with the banner die from the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-namics

I die cut the elements of the Birthday Cake from patterned paper, Limelight CS, and Blu Raspberry CS. The candles were cut out from Smooth White CS and were colored with Copic Markers. I added foam sheet behind each die-cut piece (except the candles) and adhered to the inside panel, that I gold embossed with the Snowfall Background. I stamped another sentiment along the bottom edge of the panel so it won't be seen when the card is closed.

All the new products will be available for purchase on February 5 at 10:00 am EST.

Happy Birth-Yay! - MFT February Release Countdown Day 4

February 2, 2019

Welcome to Day 4 of the MFT February Release Countdown! Today I'm sharing a pop-up birthday card that features the new stamp set from my Birdie Brown line, Birth-Yay.

I combined the Birth-Yay stamp set with the So Many Yays Die-namics for my card front. I made a card base from Limelight CS and stenciled the Star Celebration over the top half of the front with Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink. I cut out a circular window with the Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, stamped a part of the sentiment "It's Your BIRTH-YAY", then added the "Yay", which I layered three die-cuts. I also added a balloon to the window for the continuity of the scene.

For the inside, I stenciled the Star Celebration again with Limelight and Lemon Drop Premium Dye Inks and put the animals and the birthday cake images together to make a party scene. All the images were stamped on Neenah Solar White CS with Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink and were colored with Copic Markers. 

All the new products will be available for purchase on February 5 at 10:00 am EST.

Super Dog Double Slider Card - MFT February Release Countdown Day 5

February 1, 2019

The MFT February Release Countdown has begun! This month's release is all about birthdays!! We're going to showcase so many birthday themed stamps, dies, and stencils for the next five days. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog every day to see the full reveal of the new products and for more inspiration from the DT.

I have a double slider card to share with you today. It features the adorable Super Dog stamp set & Die-namics and the City Block Die-namics.

To create my night cityscape, I blended Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon, and Chipped Saphire Distress Inks, then spattered it with some water and white ink. I cut out a slider channel with the Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and made two notches on both side edges using the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics. Well, actually I realized later that I didn't need to make a notch on the left side. So I decided to put back the cut-out piece. :P I die cut the City Block out of Black Licorice CS and adhered to the inked panel.

I made two more nightscape panels and made a double slider mechanism under the top panel using the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics. So, when the under panel is pulled out, the super dog slides to the right and his friends show up.

The balloons are from the new Birthday Bear & Friends stamp set which will be revealed on Day 2 of the countdown.


All the new products will be available for purchase on February 5 at 10:00 am EST.
