Peek-a-Boo Birthday Card : MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints

August 17, 2017

It's time for a Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog. As it was announced last month, this challenge has moved from the MFT blog to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog, and it's open to anyone who wants to participate! Remember that you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher with joining the challenge. 

This month we're featuring Peek-a-Boo elements. I chose the Blueprints 30 Die-namics to create my card for today. 

The main frame die in the Blueprints 30 cuts an interactive flap, which is a good place to hide a gift card or a surprise message. I added a circle Peek-a-Boo window to the flap so you can take a peek of what is inside.  
Now you can see a monster through the window, then when you open the flap...

Hooray!! :):)

To create my front panel, I cut Spearmint CS to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2", inked lower half of it with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, and added ink spatters with Cracked Pistachio and white inks. After it dried, I cut the rounded rectangle frame and the circle window using the Blueprints 30 Die-namics. I stamped the monsters from the More Monsters stamp set with Sour Apple and Milk Chocolate Premium Dye inks, and also stamped one of the monsters (the second one from the left) to the Smooth White card base at the same position using my Mini MISTI.
I put aside the front panel, then stamped another monster beside the green monster. I stenciled the stars using the Star Celebration Stencil and sponge daubers after I masked the monsters.
I adhered the front panel and embellished with silver stars.

Flip-Flop Halloween Tags - MFT Release Replay

August 15, 2017

Today the MFT DT 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!

I have a set of three Halloween tags to share with you that I made using the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamp set & Die-namics.

Do you think these look too simple? Actually these are interactive tags that move as you see in the animated GIF below.

Isn't it a good idea to add more fun to your Halloween treat bags? :)

Well... I'm extremely nervous today because I'm sharing my FIRST how-to video. PLEASE note that this is my first try to make a tutorial video and I apologize for the bad quality. There is no narration because my English speaking skill is awfully bad, I just added a few captions though. (I know some of you don't like this type of videos.) I will greatly appreciate it if you could take a little time to leave a comment or you gave me some advice on how to improve my video.

Wishing You a Magical Day - MFT WSC 345

August 9, 2017

A new sketch challenge (WSC 345) is up on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog!

I decided to play with the Magical Day stamp set that was just released last night. The smaller image in the set was perfect for the circle element in the sketch. :D

My circular frame was cut out of Silver Sparkle Card Stock with the Stitched Circle Scallop Frames Die-namics. I layered three frames for a little thickness.

The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder. As you see in the photo above, I scored four lines using my Scor-Buddy and Teflon Bone Folder since the black panel looked too plain. These lines made a big difference! I also added silver stars here and there to embellish the card.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. Hope you'll play along with us this week!
