You’re a Gem + Video—MFT January Release Replay

ReleaseReplay - 2016jan12

Hello, and welcome to MFT’s January Release Replay. 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! Be sure to check out what other Design Team members have for you at the MFT Blog.


I didn’t get enough of Bling It On and Diamonds Die-namics so I have another card using them for you today. I have a video showing how I made this card. You can view it HERE in HD or click on the button below to watch.

And here’s a quick rundown for you: I’m using a Grout Gray card stock base, then some Ranger watercolor paper with a wash using Peerless Watercolors and a large Diamonds Die-namics opening cut out, then popped up on foam mounting tape. I cut the next smaller size from watercolor paper, did a wash on it, topped it with the outline die cut from Silver Shine card stock and popped it up, as well, centered in the larger opening.

The sentiment, from Bling It On, was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Tag Builders Blueprints 5 Die-namics, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some clear gems.

And that’s it for me for today. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

  1. Gorgeous card! I, too, love the Peerless watercolors. Such great effects without much effort. Just curious - is the quickie glue strong enough to hold embellishments in place when mailing a card?

    1. Hi, Joy, and thanks for your sweet comment! I have used it and had no problems, but I prefer Ranger Multi Medium Matte for them. It dried clear and holds really tight. Hope that helps!


  2. Love your videos and this card is stunning!
    Like the clean, crisp and elegant look.

    Have a great day/Gunilla

  3. I love your stunning card, Barbara! Love the deep colors. Paulette S.
