What happy colors, right?  And definitely Christmas friendly seeing as how Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright Paper Pack works perfectly with them. Which is why I put a strip of it down the side of my card base. Then I added a card front with a watercolor wash for the Summer Splash part and built the rest on that.

MFTCPC107_2_2018dec13b

Before popping the card front up on foam tape on the card base, I heat embossed the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings in gold, then added the ornaments, cut with Filled with Joy Die-namics. After they were arranged and adhered, I finished off with some gold enamel dots.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the

Get Well Soon–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #415

MFTWSC415_2_2018dec12

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I decided to make that round element into a shaker. I started by doing a watercolor background and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Next I cut a piece of Petite Plaids Paper Pack and cut the opening with LLD Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and created my shaker element. I didn’t use a pouch so it’s also popped up on foam.

MFTWSC415_2_2018dec12b

I decided to use Get Well Circle Frames Die-namics but I still needed the horizontal stripe to complete the sketch. To do this I cut some Translucent Vellum and heat embossed two sentiments from All About You, adhered it, and adhered the circle frame on top of it. I’m liking it.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! This one is hosted by Broni and will be the last on of 2018. The Design Team is taking the rest of the month off to enjoy the holidays but we’ll be back on January 2nd to kick off 2019!

I need wind down the Christmas cards so this is one of the last of the year :( I decided to stamp on Kraft and I’m liking how it turned out. I started with a Kraft card stock base and added some Black & White Stripes Paper Pack across the bottom. I worked on a trimmed Kraft panel and stamped the greenery from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings  Stamp Set (I’ve really gotten good use out of these images this year!) along with the berries to create a wreath.

CTD523_2018dec12b

The sentiment is from Trio of Trees Stamp Set and was stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, then the panel was popped up on the base with foam tape. I finished off with a black & white baker’s twine bow to tie things together. CAS and I like it.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD523 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd523 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!

December MFT & Friends—New Product Release!!

MFTandFriends2_2018dec11

All of out December Release products are available in the MFT Online Boutique NOW! Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you!

MFTandFriends


I hadn’t had a chance to use Christmas Tree Window Die-namics yet so I thought I’d make up for that omission by bringing you TWO cards using it. First up, a very dainty and elegant design that I wish you could see IRL. I tried and tried but could NOT capture it in a photo—I’m thinking because of all the shine and sparkle. To begin, I sponged some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Blue Breeze Premium Dye Ink and heat embossed the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Stamp Set with silver detail embossing powder. Next I splattered this panel with gold and silver acrylic paint, slightly watered down, matted it with Silver Sparkle card stock after it dried.

MFTandFriends2_2018dec11b

I cut Christmas Tree Window Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock and trimmed around it so it could stand alone. It was decorated with Silver Sparkle card stock and popped up on foam tape on the card front. To finish, I popped it up on the card base to which I’d adhered some Gold Sparkle card stock.
*****

The second card is a little more rustic in design.

MFTandFriendsb_2018dec11


I stamped some Kraft card stock with Versamark and a sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings Stamp Set then cut Christmas Tree Window Die-namics and created a shaker element. I backed it with an alcohol ink piece I’d created some time ago for kicks but which came in handy for this tree. It was filled with Silver and Gold Sparkle Seed Beads and I added Gold Sparkle card stock trimmings to the tree along with some Wild Cherry card stock “ornaments”.

MFTandFriendsb_2018dec11b

I popped the card front up on foam tape and added the sentiment, from SY Sweet Holiday Penguins Stamp Set, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, on Jellybean Green Card Stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. It was popped up on foam and I finished off with some enamel dots.

And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR new December goodies in some fun ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!! Don’t forget that MFT will be giving away TWO $100 vouchers—to have a chance to win one, be sure to comment on each of the designers’ blogs by end of the day on Thursday, December 13th. The winners will be announced on the MFT Blog on Friday, December 14th—it’s gonna be a lucky day for someone!

I loved this collection of products SO much when they were in the card kit a couple of months ago and I had a ball playing with them again for this release! I had made myself a note while I was creating for the card kit release to try copper embossing powder on Kraft card stock so that’s what I did for this first card. I love the way it looks! I decided to color the flower with Prismacolor pencils since it had been a LONG time since I’d shown them any love. So, I started by embossing the image several times on a Kraft card stock base. Then I cut Kraft card stock with Blueprints 33 Die-namics and stamped the image again, off the edge.

countdownday1_2018dec10b

I stamped the sentiment from Hello Beautiful Stamp Set with Lush Lagoon Premium Dye ink and popped it up on foam tape. Then I cut Beautiful Die-namics from Copper Sparkle card stock and backed with Lush Lagoon card stock and popped it up on foam as well. I really love how this turned out.
*****


For my second card I went with a hot color with Copic markers.

countdownday1b_2018dec10

The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. Then I added a panel of Plaid Patterns Paper Pack and popped the flower up on foam tape.


countdownday1b_2018dec10b

The sentiment was stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips and adhered across the plaid panel. Beautiful Die-namics was cut once from Gold Shine card stock and twice from Sweet Tooth card stock, adhered together with spray adhesive and adhered to the card front. I finished off with some Gold Sprinkles.

And that’s it from me for MFT’s December Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Tomorrow I’ll be back for the release with MFT & Friends so I hope to see you again then.
