Season’s Greetings - MFT Color Challenge #129



Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: After Midnight, Ripe Raspberry, Persimmon, and Summer Splash. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT 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.





OK, so I might have mentioned how much I love the just released Party Lights Stamp Set and Die-namics, right? So here it is again creating a frame around a sentiment. This set is so versatile I can see using it for many occasions!! Today I started by stamping the light cord around the perimeter of the Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper panel and the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings with Extreme Black hybrid ink and then sponging Summer Splash dye ink on the cord.






















That panel was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and Party Lights Die-namics cut from the challenge colors and popped up on bits of foam tape for some dimension. I love this!

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

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Season’s Greetings–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #462



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 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 started this card by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and then spread molding paste through Peace, Love, & Joy Stencil. While it was drying I added some Black & White Strip Paper Pack across the bottom of a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut Perfect Poinsettia Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor Paper. I colored the poinsettia with Peerless Watercolors then spattered with clean water and black acrylic ink. Once the molding paste was dry, I adhered that panel to the card base with foam tape, assembled the poinsettia and adhered it with hot glue.



The sentiment from Snow Globe Greetings was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and adhered with foam tape.

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

With Gratitude–Color Throwdown Challenge #568















Hi everyone, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s colors have a definite Autumn vibe, chosen by Lynn based on this gorgeous inspiration piece.




I truly love Joyful Wreath Die-namics from the recent
MFT Release and I’m here to show you it’s not just for Christmas. First I have to admit I spaced out and used a Sweet Tooth card stock base—should have been a cream colored base. To created the wreath I cut it three times from Sweet Tooth card stock and sponged each one with a different ink. I used Gathered Twigs, Carved Pumpkin, and Bundled Sage Distress Inks and cut two of the wreaths into “fronds”. It’s easier to fill in that way. Then I adhered on wreath on the card front and added the “fronds” one at a time to make it fuller.





The berries were cut from Orange Zest card stock and adhered to the wreath. The sentiment is from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude and was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Milk Chocolate card stock cut with Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics. I popped that up on foam tape and finished off with some gold glitter enamel dots.

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 CTD568 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd568 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!

MFT & Friends, November Edition—November Release Is Now Available for Purchase!




All of our November Release products are available in the MFT Online Boutique NOW! Today our team and some friends are 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 so be sure to also stop by the MFT Blog to see who else is participating!



I may have mentioned how much I love the new Party Lights Stamp Set and Die-namics and I’m using them again today for a couple of cards. For my first card I started by sponging Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. After that dried I stamped the cords and the sentiment, from Hand Lettered Holiday Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink then adhered the panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.



Next I cut a lot of bulbs from Gold Sparkle and Silver Sparkle card stock and popped them up on bits if foam tape for dimension to finish off.
*****

My second card is a little more colorful :)


To begin, I stamped the cord with Extreme Black hybrid ink on a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock then created a garland using stamps from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greeting Stamp set and Sour Apple and Jellybean Green dye ink.



Next I cut the light bulb using Wild Cherry, Orange Zest, Pineapple, Gumdrop Green, and Cornflower card stocks and also popped them up on the cord with small pieced of foam tape.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! 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 posts linked on the MFT Blog by end of the day on Thursday, November 7th. The winners will be announced on the MFT Blog on Friday, November 8th. Good luck!!

Final Countdown—One Day Until MFT’s November Release!!



















Hello and welcome to the final day of
MFT’s November Release Countdown! Release is tomorrow, November 5th at 10am, Eastern so set you alarms! Be sure to check by the MFT Blog today for all the details! Today we’re previewing Fantasy Florals Stamp Set, Fantasy Florals Die-namics, Mod Link 1 Die-namics, Mod Link 2 Die-namics (Free with $60), and Tree-o Stamp Set (Free with ANY Purchase).



Two more cards for you today to finish out the November Countdown!! First up is Fantasy Florals Stamp Set and Die-namics. I decided to do the spotlight treatment for this card. This is a fairly large image so it adapts itself well to it. I stamped the entire large image on Sweet Tooth card stock and cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics. Then I stamped what looks to me like a succulent—it could also be brightly colored as a dahlia, I think, too. I colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out then set them both aside. The background was sponged on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper using Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks, cut out with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1, and popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. The large image was also popped up on foam as was the “succulent”.



I added two colors from Watercolor Wash Paper Pack, cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips and Starburst Sentiments strips, a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, and the sentiment, from Well, Hello Stamp Set, stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment Strip with Extreme Black Hybrid ink. Sweet Hello Die-namics was cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and twice from scraps, stacked with spray adhesive, and added to the card front. Enamel dots finished it off. Sweet!!
*****

My next card brings you an unexpected rainbow :)



I started by cutting Mod Links 2 Die-namics from a rainbow assortment of MFT card stocks: Wild Cherry, Orange Zest, Pineapple, Sour Apple, Berrylicious, and Grape Jelly and adhered them at a diagonal on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel with spray adhesive. Once I trimmed all the ends I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.



























Next I cut Stitched Clouds Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered them with foam tape, then heat embossed the sentiment from Rainbow Greetings Stamp Set on Translucent Vellum cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment strips and adhered it with clear foam tape. I finished off with a few clear droplets.

And that’s all from me today and for MFT’s November Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the November MFT and Friends feature where you’ll get lots of inspiration using the release.
