Otters Shaker Card - MFT Release Replay

January 17, 2017

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 combined the newly released Otterly Love You stamp set with the Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics to create a shaker card. And also, I had the otters hold a cupcake which is from the Hog Heaven stamp set.

First I stamped a cupcake and masked it off, then stamped an otter. I colored them with Copics and cut out with scissors.

The Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics can be used to make a wavy background for sea creatures. For my background, I blended some Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, and Salty Ocean) on a watercolor paper panel and spritzed it with some water. I used the matching colors of sequins (Sparkling Clear, Lime Sorbet, Sea Breeze) for my shaker.

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. :)

Otterly Love You - MFT WSC 315

January 11, 2017

Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day card I made using the Otterly Love You stamp set which was just released last night. This is based on the newest MFT sketch (WSC315).

I decided to use the large fishtail banner element in the sketch as a sentiment panel, and placed an otter holding a heart beside the sentiment.
For my background, I thought that the Waves stencil would be a good match for the otter. After I stenciled it on a Smooth White panel, I randomly stamped some tiny hearts which were from the So Much Love stamp set. I also added a cross-stitch line along the left side of the panel using the Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics.

I covered all the hearts with Glossy Accents to add a little more texture.

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

Thank you!

MFT January New Product Launch

It's time to shop! MFT's January new products are available for purchase now!

I'd like to share a card I made using the new stamp set & Die-namics from Birdie Brown line, Otterly Love You.

First I die cut a scalloped rectangle panel from watercolor paper using the Blueprints 27 Die-namics. I stamped and white embossed the waves, then inked over the panel using Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks and spritzed it with some water. The sentiment was gold embossed after inks completely dried. (Hummm... I'm not sure if gold was a good choice.)

I stamped the images on X-Press It Blending Card, colored them with Copics, and die-cut out with the matching dies.

I love that the wave dies in the Otterly Love You Die-namics can make slits to put in the otters and/or rocks. This makes it easy to create a natural scene that the otters float on the water.
