MFT February Card Kit Countdown Day 2

February 21, 2017

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT February Card Kit Countdown! The new Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit will be available for purchase tonight at 9:00 pm EST!!

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)

My card for today is simple and easy! :) 
I made a 'faux' ink spatters background on a Smooth White card base using the Distressed Patterns stamp set. Then I stamped a sentiment from the You Give Me Butterflies stamp set in Gravel Gray.


I stamped, die cut, and adhered the butterflies, and embellished them with tiny diamonds by Queen & Co.. (The ink colors I used for the butterflies are listed at the bottom of this blog post.) That's all! :)

MFT February Card Kit Countdown Day 1

February 20, 2017

Today I'm so excited to begin the countdown to the MFT February Card Kit Release!! The new kit is called Beautiful Butterflies - it's soooo beautiful that I'm sure you will LOVE it!


The Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit will be available for purchase on February 21 (tomorrow) at 9:00 pm EST. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog to see the full reveal of the kit!

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I started my card with a Smooth White card base and covered the front of it with a panel of patterned paper from the Watercolor Wash Paper Pad. I cut a panel of Smooth White using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and cut out three circular openings from it using the Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge Die-namics
I stamped a sentiment from the You Give Me Butterflies stamp set in Black Licorice, then stamped some tiny flowers, which are from the Bold Blooms stamp set, around the openings.

I love that the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set includes accent parts that add depth to the wings of each butterfly! So beautiful! I used Berrylicious, Blue Yonder, and Blueberry Premium Dye inks for the blue butterflies, and Daffodil, Orange Fizz, and Black Licorice for the yellow one. I used a Mini MISTI tool when I stamped them. But it's not so hard to layer each part perfectly without using a MISTI. ;)
I die cut them with the matching dies. I added die cut butterflies underneath them and slightly bent their wings up when I adhered them to the openings.

As you see in the photo above, I added a little shimmer to the wings with a Wink of Stella pen.

Shirt & Tie Card - MFT February Release Replay

February 14, 2017

💗💗💗 Happy Valentine's Day!! 💗💗💗

Today the MFT Creative Team 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 made a shirt shaped card using the new Denim Background stamp and the Boss Babe stamp set. It's a fun masculine card!

I borrowed this idea and template from HERE, but changed the tie and added a pocket. 


I made my card base from Cornflower CS and stamped both the front and the back with the Denim Background using Blueberry Premium Dye ink to add texture. I added the stitching lines on the collar and the pocket with a white gel pen. 
The tie was cut out of a patterned paper from the Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright Paper Pack. Here is a measurement of my tie.


I white embossed a sentiment from the Boss Babe stamp set on a Safety Orange panel and added a few wooden stars to finish off the card.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today! I'm sure you'll be inspired a lot with their fabulous projects. :)
