SLIDER CHANNEL BUILDER

The Slider Channel Builder Die-namics is a framework set that builds interactive sliders for your designs. Start with your main card panel and build the channel that will be hidden behind it. The three thin strips help support the panel, and the u-shaped portion serves as the channel to house (and stop) the slider. The tab is the hint that there is an interactive element to your card. Hide your sentiment on the tab or let something show through to the card base (or hidden panel) when the tab is removed. Stack the die-cut pieces from this set to create a deeper channel. The sky’s the limit with what you can do with the Slider Channel Builder Die-namics!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Chances are you make lots and LOTS of birthday cards every year, so snatch up the Happy Birthday Die-namics to make birthday card creating a breeze! Use these two Die-namics together for a pretty scripty sentiment or pair it with the bold font of the Happy Birthday to You Die-namics for a mixed font look.

This delightful 2 step stamp set features six little monsters that you can personalize with mouths, eyes, antennae, and other fun details!

MIRROR IMAGE

The Mirror Image stamp is a must have in your stash! With this one stamp, you can revolutionize your entire inventory of stamps. Ink up any stamp, stamp it on the mirror image stamp, and then stamp the mirror image on paper to create a reverse image. How magical is THAT? The Mirror Image stamp works best with a conditioned stamp. Watch this video for ideas of how to condition your stamps for the best results.

Wondering how you might use this handy little stamp? Barbara’s created a little step-by-step with some examples!

Have you ever wished an image was oriented in the opposite direction than it is? Often a project design would work better if this were the case and Mirror Image Stamp Set allows you to do just that.

1. For my first example, I ‘m going to use the cute hedgehog image from the Warm & Fuzzy Friends stamp set, watercolor paper, VersaMark, and White Detail Embossing Powder.

mirrorimagetute2

2. Using the MISTI, remove the black foam pad and place a piece of clear acetate in the corner with stamp mounted as if it was on a stamping block. Mount the Mirror Image stamp on the door so that it will cover the stamp.

mirrorimagetute3

3. Ink up the stamp with Versamark, close the door , and stamp onto the Mirror Image stamp. Do this gently; pushing firmly may move the door slightly, distorting the image. Repeat.

mirrorimagetute4

4. Working quickly, open door, remove acetate with the stamp, replace black foam pad, and place watercolor paper into MISTI in the same place. Close door and press down firmly-the image stamped on Mirror Image Stamp with Versamark will transfer to the paper. Repeat steps 3 & 4.

mirrorimagetute5

5. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. The image on the bottom is the mirror image and on the top is one stamped normally.

mirrorimagetute6

6. Here the images are watercolored to show more detail.

mirrorimagetute7

7. For my second example I’m going to stamp on Copic friendly paper with Versafine. Versafine works well because it stays wet long enough to apply heat embossing. I’m using my favorite little parrot from Polynesian Paradise.

mirrorimagetute8

8. Employing the same technique, remove the foam pad from the MISTI, ink up the image with Versafine (I’m using Onyx Black,) close the door, and lightly stamp the image onto the Mirror Image stamp. Repeat steps for complete coverage.

mirrorimagetute9

9. Here I’ve applied clear detail embossing powder…

PREMIUM DYE INK CUBES

Ever since we debuted 1″ ink cube sets in our card kits, you’ve been asking if we had plans to release them separately from the kits.

Each set includes four cubes. These sets do not match the card kit sets. Each set will feature unique colors though so there won’t be any color overlap between sets.

With our August Release, we have 2 sets to share. Premium Dye Ink Cubes – Set 1 features Orange Fizz, Grape Jelly, Lemon Drop, and Limelight. Premium Dye Ink Cubes – Set 2 features Green-Eyed Monster, Cherry Crisp, Tangy Orange, and Milk Chocolate.

Let’s Eat Cake

Let’s take a look at what MFT Guest Designer Caryn Davies has in store for us today!

Caryn-Davies-243x300

Hello again. I’m back today with two more cards created with some of the awesome new products from the July 2016 release. This time I’ve used the amazing Celebrate With Cake stamp set along with some cool dies and my favourite MFT paper pack – Watercolor Wash!

The first card uses the hugely versatile Gift Box Cover Up Die-namics layered over the Watercolor Wash paper in the peach colour (love this shade). I stamped the large cake in two shades of lilac and mounted it onto the frame with foam tape. Now, I have never paired this colour combo up before and to be honest, the jury is still out for me! Can’t decide if it works or not! In the other “boxes” of the frame I die cut the candles from the top of the Happy Birthday Centerpieces Die-namics and added them to the top box and stamped my sentiment  in the lower left box. A few sequins on the cake finishes it off with just a tiny amount of sparkle.

Handmade card from Caryn Davies featuring Lisa Johnson Designs Celebrate with Cake stamp set and Die-namics, Gift Box Cover-Up and Happy Birthday Centerpieces Die-namics #mftstamps

The second card features the same stamped cake as above in a pale aqua colour and is finished with pink roses to match the background panel. Those amongst you with a keen eye will notice I used the central panel die cut from the Time For Bubbly card yesterday for my card today – waste not, want not!  I wanted to keep this card quite simple so a crisp white card base with the sentiment stamped in grey keeps it nice and clean.

Before I go, I just want to say a HUUUUUUGE thank you to Kim, Susan, Erica, and the whole MFT team for asking me to be their guest again. I have really enjoyed playing with this release and can’t wait to see what’s coming up for August!!!

Big hugs

Party Like There’s No Tomorrow

Today we are welcoming Caryn Davies to our blog as an MFT Guest Designer. We think you’ll like what she has to offer! Let’s take a look at Caryn’s super cute takes on some of the  products from our July release.

Caryn-Davies-243x300

Hi there! I’m so chuffed to have been invited back to MFT as a guest designer for the AWESOME July 2016 Release. I know many people have said it before, but this company is one of the kindest and most generous companies out there and the team are such a fun bunch. This month’s release, like every other, is full of amazing products, and today I have two cards to share using some of my favourites!

My first card features the You’re Rawr-some stamp set along with a couple of other previously released dies — the Snow Drifts Cover-Up and Grassy Edges Die-namics. I started by die cutting the cover-up from Kraft Card Stock and laying it over some peach coloured paper from the Watercolor Wash Paper Pack. A couple of the dino critters were stamped and coloured with Copics along with some of the foliage elements also from the set. I added the grass on the bottom and stamped the sentiment (made me chuckle, that one) on the bottom before mounting everything onto a white card base.

Handmade card from Caryn Davies featuring You're Rawr-some stamp set and Die-namics, Snow Drifts Cover Up and Grassy Edges Die-namics #mftstamps

The second card just describes the life I would love to become accustomed to!  Chillaxing in the bath with a bottle of bubbly and not a care in the world!!  I created a frame using the stitched die from the Time for the Bubbly Die-namics and one of the papers from the Watercolor Wash Paper Pack. I then stamped the main image on a piece of white card stock, cut around the bathtub, rug, and leg and coloured them with Copics. Then I paper pieced the background elements using the Thick & Thin Paper Pack for the wall and the floor is the same pink watercolour paper as the frame. I coloured the mirror frame black and die cut the central mirror part in silver glitter paper. Finally, I added a little bit of twine and a few sequins to finish off and stamped the sentiment above and below the image.

Handmade card from Caryn Davies featuring Time for the Bubbly stamp set and Die-namics #mftstamps

That’s it for today! I’ll be back with a couple more cards tomorrow.

Hugs,

Caryn xxx

Creative Construction with Blueprints – Birthday Tags

MFT_CreativeConstruction_SideBar

We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original card combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

Did you know you can find ALL of our printable Blueprints sketches in one spot? Our Printable Resources section over there in the sidebar is packed with handy reference materials including Blueprints.

With five different Tag Builder Blueprints in our ever-expanding collection, as well as the numerous tags included in our traditional Blueprints series, constructing tags to adorn birthday cards and gifts has never been easier. This month, we challenged the team to craft tags designed to celebrate the occasion we all love to craft for with designs that will be as cherished as the gift itself.

Handmade tags from Torico featuring Birdie Brown Hog Heaven stamp set and DIe-namics, Lisa Johnson Designs Celebrate with Cake stamp set, Birthday Balloons and Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics #mftstamps

Torico’s trio of tags is sweet as can be with gingham, flowers, cupcakes, and those cuties from the Hog Heaven stamp set! Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics makes it simple to create cute tags with a lot of interest. You can easily inlay patterned paper and add colorful accents like the hole reinforcer to your design. The foldable sentiment flag adds dimension and interest to top off your terrific birthday tags.

Handmade tags from Donna Mikasa featuring Funky Flowers stamp set and Die-namics, Laina Lamb Design Sweet Succulents stamp set, Whimsical Woodgrain Background stamp, and Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics #mftstamps

Donna’s use of Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics results in three pretty tags. She keeps the basics of the tag monochromatic, and then adds subtle sophistication with the Funky Flowers stamp set and Die-namics. The touches of gold make these tags hand-crafted treasures.

We’re not done yet – keep on clicking to see how others on our team interpreted this month’s challenge.

My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L – Day Three

Before we get to today’s post, we have our randomly selected Twice the Wishes Card Kit Launch winner. Our lucky winner has won a $50 Voucher to the MFT boutique. Enjoy!

from Jody’s blog: Purple Princess

Welcome back to our final fun day with our friends from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! We hope you’ve enjoyed the clever and innovative projects our creative team has created using products made by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Barbara used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape to create the sparkly glitter strips on her colorful design and Crafty Foam Tape to create dimension between the layers. To adhere the greenery, the E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable Dispenser came in handy. And to finish it off, she used the Adhesive Sheets for her die cut sentiment. It just goes to show that the right adhesives will do the trick!

Handmade card from Barbara Anders featuring the Forest Friends stamp set, Hello There, Bold Greenery, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

Jodi used one of the “SUPER fun” 3D Foam Hearts and coated the heart with glitter for a sparkly accent. All of the elements were popped up using Crafty Foam Tape, which Jodi says is now her most favorite foam mounting tape! She loves that it can be cut down to any size you need, and it is super easy to remove the backing. Jodi calls herself a liquid glue kind of gal and declares the Dual Tip Glue Pen a fabulous adhesive. The smaller tip is perfect for adding just the right amount of glue to small panels!

Melania went for a super cute design for this MFT/3L collaboration! Her robots are popped up on DODZ™ Adhesive Dots 3D. The pretty dimensional yellow stars 3D Foam Stars, and she colored them using Pigment Gold Powder by Donna Salazar. So many creative options!
