Reach for the Stars - MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge

October 19, 2017

It's time for a Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog. This month's theme is Right This Way - we're challenged to use the directional elements from MFT Blueprints collection.

First I decided to play with the Written in the Stars stamp set and the Shinning Stars Die-namics, and wanted to lead recipient's eyes towards the upside to match with the sentiment. So I decided to use the chevron elements from the Blueprints 32 Die-namics and added a few rectangle elements from the Blueprints 13 & 32 to emphasize the vertical visual line.

To create my background, I lightly stenciled the Abstract pattern with Grout Gray ink using a stencil brush and added some faux gold ink spatters using the Distress Patterns stamp set.


I die cut three "Stars" from After Midnight CS and one from Smooth White CS. I slightly inked the lower one third of the white one with Peach Bellini ink. I stacked and glued them together, the white one was on top and a little bit off-set for a shadow effect.

MFT Snowflake Splendor Card Kit Release

October 18, 2017

It's time to shop! The new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit is available for purchase now!!


I have one more card to share with you that I made using the new kit.
(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)

I kept the design clean so that my snowflake took the stage.
I made my frames with Smooth White, Sno Cone, and Summer Splash card stock using the stacked die cutting technique. I stamped the top panel with the Balloon Strings Background and heat embossed a sentiment from the Snowfall of Blessings stamp set with Silver embossing powder.

As you see in the photo above, I layered several die cut snowflakes. The Smooth White and Sno Cone snowflakes were cut with the Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and the vellum one was cut with the Snowflake Splendor Die-namics. I added a little bit of Crystal Drops to the center. It's really fun mixing and matching different shapes of snowflakes to create your own snowflakes! :)

MFT October Card Kit Countdown Day 2

October 17, 2017

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT Snowflake Splendor Card Kit Countdown. The new kit will be available for purchase tonight at 9:00 pm EDT!


(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
Today I paired the kit with the Happy Pawlidays stamp set. To create my background panel, I inked a Spearmint panel with Spearmint Premium Dye ink, spattered it with white ink, then cut it with the Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics. I cut two more Snow Drifts Cover-Ups out of Spearmint CS, stacked them on a Smooth White card base, and inlaid the inked interior pieces. I gold embossed a sentiment from the Happy Pawlidays stamp set on one of the interior pieces.

The snowflakes were cut with the Layered Snowflakes Die-namics. It contains 10 snowflake dies and you can create a variety of snowflakes by mixing and matching these dies! You can see a few examples in the graphic below, but mines are different from any of them. ;) You'll see more examples on the DT blogs. (The links to the DT blog posts are on the MFT blog.)
