Birthday Wishes - MFT Birthday Project Challenge--Balloons!!

 




Need an instant party? 
Just add balloons. You simply can't deny the unfettered charm balloons bring to most any occasion. Stamps, dies, stencils — we've got the perfect balloon for any application and our designers are here today to share their ideas with you. 




One-layer cards can be so cool, especially if there's lots of color so I decided to add that color with Big Balloons Stencil and Distress Ink. I used Fossilized Amber, Shabby Shutters, Broken China, Dusty Concord, and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock to begin.





Once that dried I splattered it with clean water and black acrylic ink, then hand drew in the balloon strings with a Black Copic multiliner pen.





For the sentiment, I cut Birthday Wishes Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and adhered it with spray adhesive, then adhered the card front to a Sweet Tooth card stock base for the finish!

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! We hope to see you playing along with the challenge on the MFT Blog. Prizes are to be had!

Sending You a Flurry of Love - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #512

 

































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 saw snowflakes when I first saw this sketch and couldn't get them off my mind! So, to start, I heat embossed Peacock Pattern Background on Ranger Watercolor paper with silver detail embossing powder did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors then set it aside to dry. 





Then I cut Sweet Snowflakes from Silver Sparkle card stock and heat embossed the sentiment from SY Flurry of Love Stamp Set on Translucent Vellum. When the watercolor panel was dry, I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, splattered it with silver acrylic ink, and popped the whole thing up on foam tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.





To finish off, I popped up the sentiment and the snowflakes with clear foam tape and it was done!

And there you have it!
Now it’s YOUR turn to play! 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!

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas - Color Throwdown Challenge #616

 



































Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week Lisa is our hostess and I absolutely LOVE the color combo she has chosen for us base on her warm and cozy inspriation piece!






I hadn't used the recently released MFT Four Corners Background stamp so I got it out and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Ranger Watercolor paper and then did a watercolor wash with Peerless watercolors. Once dry, I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.





Next I cut Translucent Vellum with Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics and heat embossed, also with gold powder, Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas Stamp Set which I adhered directly to the card front with spray adhesive. 





Next I cut Holly Berries Die-namics--the leaves from Kraft card stock and the berries from No Line Coloring card stock--and colored them up with Copic markers. The holly was adhered with hot glue and I was done!

Sending You a Little Magic - MFT October Outside the Box Challenge

 

There’s no better time to —BOO— surprise a friend or loved one with a card than Halloween. Crafting scenes featuring graveyards, haunted houses, and trick-or-treaters is easy with a basic box card base! If Halloween isn’t your thing, an autumn scene with bare-branched trees and falling leaves is a perfect alternative. We’ve challenged our designers to heed the call of fall in this month’s challenge — won’t you join them?



I used Boo Crew Stamp Set and Die-namics, along with Outside the Box and Outside the Box Grass, Spooky Fence, and Haunted House Die-namics for the "bones" of my project.




Images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers.





The box was constructed from Black Licorice card stock and Creepy Confections Patterned Paper with the "shelves" cut from Limelight card stock. Edges of the grass and the haunted house were sponged with Kraft card stock. 





The background was done on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock with Seedless Preserves and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. Spooky Fence Die-namics was cut from Tangy Orange card stock and distressed with black ink for the rusty look.





The sentiment was stamped on Orange Zest card stock cut from Skinny Strips Die-namics and popped up on foam on the box front.

Now, it's your turn. You have until Thursday, October 15, at noon EDT to add your link and be eligible for the prize of a $50 MFT shopping spree. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

That’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Joy - MFT Color Challenge #151

 



Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Smooth White, Electric Red, Jellybean Green, and Limelight. 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.





Well, of course these color said CHRISTMAS to me so that's where I went! To begin, I spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and set it aside. While it was drying I cut Joyful Wreath Die-namics from Limelight and Jellybean Green card stocks, Electric Red card stock for the berries, and the Joy in the center was cut from Silver Sparkle card stock.



























Once the background was dry, I assembled the wreath on the card front using hot glue and popped the Joy up on foam tape.

And there you have it! Now it's YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

Peace on Earth - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #511



 



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.



This was fun! I didn't want to just use some rectangle for the vertical element so I thought about what I could use instead and I came up with a light ray. First I created my background using Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and spattered white craft ink for the stars. Once dry, I adhered that directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I cut Little Town of Bethlehem Die-namics from Peach Bellini and Kraft card stocks and arranged it on the card front.
























Before I added the Kraft layer, I cut Translucent Vellum in a triangle and adhered it at the bottom and at the top with a tiny bit of clear foam tape. I stamped the sentiment, from Bitty Holiday Wishes on the Kraft and adhered it. The star was cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and adhered in place for the finish.

And there you have it! Now it's YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 MFT Voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Hey There, Pumkin - Color Throwdown Challenge #615





































Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rohl is our hostess and she's got some classic Halloween colors for us to play with.






I started with a Kraft card stock base then overlaid Spider Web Cover-Up Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock on top. Next I stamped images from Autumn Blessings Stamp Set, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. 

I arranged the images at the bottom of the card front and adhered them with hot glue once I was happy with the arrangement. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam. To finish off I added 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.

MFT October Card Kit, Fox and Friends, Release!!

 


It's time!! MFT's October Card Kit, Fox and Friends, is now available for purchase in the MFT Online Boutique! Get all the details at the MFT Blog.






For today's card I'm using lots of images from Fox and Friends Stamp Set and Die-namics. To begin, I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored then with Copic markers. Then I created my sky background using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Blue Breeze dye ink, then added a strip of the kit patterned paper, Gift Wrap Paper Pad and then some Grassy Hills Die-namics cut from Gumdrop Green card stock.






The sentiment was stamped on the background panel before it was adhered to the Sweet Tooth card base, then all the other images/elements were added--some directly and some popped up on foam for dimension.






And just like that, MFT's October Card Kit, Fox and Friends, is now available for purchase so head on over to the MFT Online Boutique and get yours!
