MFT March Countdown...

Hey there!  Stopping in today with another fun product from the March MFT Release.  I have a card here today using these new products....

Kind Thanks Stamp Set
Twice the Thanks Die-namics
Geometric Grid Stencil

Print

First, I took the background stencil and used some Translucent Embossing Paste on part of the card.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some glitter over the front and then let it dry.  I took several pictures of the card, trying to share the sparkle but it doesn't come through like it does in real life.  

Print

Next, I used some Red Hot and Orange Fizz ink and blended it out on cardstock.  I took the "thanks" die and cut out so I would have an even line in the middle of the blend.  I also cut some fun foam out to put behind the die, to give it some dimension.  I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment black card stock and attached it to the card base. 

Print

It's almost time for the release!  Do you have a wish list made already?  Hope you have enjoyed my Countdown cards.  See you soon for the release!  Have a great day!

MFT March Countdown...

There are so many fun new products in the March MFT Release.  I am here today to share with you a fun new background stamp called Geometric Grid.

MFT Countdown

I did an ombre watercolor wash after heat embossing the background onto watercolor paper.  I recently spent the weekend with a bunch of crafty, watercoloring friends and was super inspired to try more of this.  I learned from Jen Shults....to quit messing with it.  lol!

MFT Blueprints Challenge...

Its time for another Blueprints Challenge over at MFT.  Today's theme....circles!

Print

I did a little watercoloring and didn't love the outcome of the full sheet, so I used my Blueprints 18 circle die, to cut out the fun parts.  I added them all to the card front with glue just in the center of the circle and then bent up the edges of each circle so there would be some dimension.  I took the "hello" die and cut black cardstock, as well as black fun foam, for even more dimension.  

Print

Stop over to the MFT blog to play along with this challenge!  Thanks so much for coming by today!

MFT Gumball Greetings Kit Release...


The Gumball Greetings Card Kit is now available for purchase over at MFT!  I am back tonight for the release, to share one more CAS card using these adorable stamps and dies.  

Print

Growing up, I had a yellow gumball machine (and actually that very gumball machine just came to live with me!) so I knew it would be the perfect thing to add to my card.  I slid the gumball machine over to the side after sponging on some ink on to the card base.  

Print

I stamped the sentiment and added in the strip of black card stock at the bottom just to ground the machine.  I added in all the gumballs using press n seal....

Untitled

I placed all the gumballs right where I wanted them and then took a piece of press n seal and picked them all up.

Untitled

I flipped it over and put a dot of glue on the back of each circle...

Untitled

And then flipped it back over and placed the gumballs all right where they needed to be, in one shot!

Untitled

I just trimmed the edge again to make a clean edge....

Untitled

 Last, I coated them all in glossy accents.  

Print

Head on over to the MFT blog to see more details on this latest kit and all the other DT card samples for today!

Thanks for coming by today!  Have a great day!
