I Believe in You–MFT Color Challenge #145


























Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Tropical Teal, Berrylicious, Kraft, and Natural. 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.





I had to give this one a little thought, but in the end went with Prismacolor pencil colored Fun Flowers Stamp set for my focal image. I repeated an image four time to create a kind of wreath with Extreme Black hybrid ink on Natural Card Stock and after coloring the flowers pupped it up on a Kraft card stock base after stamping a sentiment from Anything-but-Basic Encouragement Stamp Set at the bottom. It was stamped with Tropical Teal dye ink but looks darker in the photo.






























After that was done I added another sentiment across the center of the “wreath” from the same set, heat embossed on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics.

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. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Hippo Birthday to You–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #497
























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 stuck pretty strictly to the sketch this week, using Party Plaid Paper Pad for the large element and Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics cut from Persimmon card stock for the smaller one. The image inside the frame is from BB Picture Perfect Party Animals and was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and mounted into the frame with foam tape.





































The sentiment is from the same set and heat embossed on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics and also popped up on foam. To finish off, I added enamel dots in matching colors.

Celebrate–Color Throwdown Challenge #601

 




Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown! This week
Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has some gorgeous, rich colors for us to play with.




I love Balloon Bundle Stamp Set and Die-namics from the
MFT July Release! I thought they would be a good way to get all the colors in and can totally stand alone in a CAS design. First thing, I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers—adding highlights with a white gel pen. I used Inward Elements Stencil to dry embossed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.






Next I popped up the balloon image on the card front with foam tape and added Celebrate Die-namics, also popped up on foam. I finished off with some matching 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 CTD601 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd601 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!

Big Birthday Wishes–July MFT & Friends Feature
























All of our July 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 hadn’t had a chance to use Balloon Bundle Stamp Set or Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics so I incorporated them in this card. I stamped and colored the balloons as the background for a shaker element using Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics and used the new Party Plaid Paper Pad for the card base.



























I filled the shaker element with silver seed beads and I couldn’t resist stamping the sentiment from Balloon Bundle Stamp Set at the bottom of the Die-namics card front since it fit perfectly!! Fun!!

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, July 9th. The winners will be announced on the MFT Blog on Friday, July 10th. Good luck!!

Final Countdown!! One Day Until MFT’s July Release!!












Alrighty!! We are at the last day of
MFT’s July Release Countdown!! Tomorrow’s the day and Release is at 10am Eastern so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details along with more inspiration from the MFT Design Team. Today we’re previewing A-roar-able Friends Stamp Set, A-roar-able Friends Die-namics, Fun Flowers Stamp Set, Fun Flowers Die-namics, Perfect Pool Water Stencil, and Perfect Pennants Die-namics (Previous Free with $60).



I had more fun creating this card than anyone should have, LOL! These critters are adorable and so much fun to color. I decided to use Impact Alphabet Die-namics to replace part of the sentiment and to create a fun focal element then stamped the rest of the sentiment beside it. The sky was created by sponging Blue Breeze dye ink with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and I used Grassy Hills Die-namics cut from Gumdrop Green card stock for the grounding.













I added a couple of images from previously released Sunny Vibes Stamp Set and Die-namics to complete my scene. It seriously makes me smile when I look at it!

And that’s it from me today and for the last Countdown for MFT’s July Release. See you back tomorrow for the July MFT & Friends Feature.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Are You Ready? Two Days Until MFT’s July Release!






























Hello and welcome to Day Two of
MFT’s July Release Countdown! Release is on July 7th at 10am Eastern so don’t be late! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing Birthday Girl Stamp Set, Birthday Girl Die-namics, All the Cupcakes Stamp Set, All the Cupcakes Die-namics, Frosted Cupcake Die-namics, and Piece of Cake Die-namics (Free with $60).



I do love a sweet Pure Innocence, don’t you? This one is dressed up and ready to par-tay! To begin, I stamped the images on No Line Color card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. Next I created the background by sponging Broken China and Gathered Twigs Distress ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and stamped the sentiment from the set at the bottom.

























I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with a strip of Party Plaid Paper Pad across the bottom. Before adhering the card front to the card base, I tied around some baker’s twine, then popped the images up on foam tape, as well, to finish off.

And there you have it for Day Two of MFT’s July Release Countdown! See you back tomorrow for Day One—and the last—Countdown before the July Release goes live.

Halfway to the Big Day—Three Days Until MFT’s July Release!
























Hey there and welcome to Day Three of
MFT’s July Release Countdown!! Three more days until Release on July 7th at 10am Eastern! Make a note and be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing Best Friends in the Universe Stamp Set, Best Friends in the Universe Die-namics, Blast Off Die-namics, Show Me Your Stripes Stencil, and Window Panes Stencil.





So, as soon as I saw Blast Off Die-namics I KNEW I would do an interactive design! I mean, how cute is this???? It just had to SOAR, right?? So to begin, cut out the rocket and assembled it because I needed to know exactly how big it would be on the card front to judge placement of the slider channel. Once that was assembled, I sponged the background using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once dry, I spattered some white craft paint for stars. I cut Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock for the rocket vapor and used foam tape for dimension and space for movement.

I cut the background with Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and popped it up with foam tape, creating a channel for Interactive Tabs Die-namics, stamped with Interactive Labels Stamp Set and then assembled the card front elements.
































Once the mechanism was assembled and working properly, I added images from Best Friends in the Universe Stamp Set and Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and finished off with some glitter enameled dots.

And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT’s July Release Countdown!

I love this ice Cream Cone Die-namics!!!! So fun and such a great size! To begin this card I heat embossed Cherry On Top Stamp Set all over and then sponged it with Broken China Distressed ink and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with a strip of Buffalo Brights Paper Pad across the bottom. I stamped the cherry from Cherry on Top Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock, colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut it out. Ice Cream Cone Die-namics was also cut from No Line Coloring Card Stock and colored with Copic markers and both popped up on the card front with foam tape.

Five Days Until MFT’s July Release!
















Hello and welcome to the first Release Countdown day for
MFT’s July Release! Release is on July 7th at 10am Eastern so make a note! And don’t forget to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing BB Picture Perfect Party Animals Stamp Set, Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics, Balloon Bundle Stamp Set, Balloon Bundle Die-namics, Big Balloon Stencil, and Party Plaid Paper Pad.




I wanted to use several of these images and sentiments, so FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME I made a slimline card, LOL! And I rather like it so expect more of these from me in the future. I’ve always admired them when others make them but never got around to it until now.

I started by stamping the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink and coloring them with Copic markers. I framed them with Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics cut from three papers in the new Party Plaid Paper Pad and added the sentiment, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock.




















I wanted just a little something for the card base so I sponged Big Balloon Stencil in Beach Bellini, Berrylicious, and Lemon Chiffon dye inks and hand drew the string. I popped the images up on foam on the card base and was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow for Day Four of MFT’s July Release Countdown!
