MFTv Welcome Baby Tag

mftv

Few events in life are as exciting and worthy of celebration as welcoming a new baby. This week on MFTv, you’ll get to see how this sweet, oversized baby gift tag is assembled. It features the Oh Baby Die-namics we released as a part of the April 2014 release but you’ll also learn some tips for elongating a tag as well as using card stock to stabilize finicky felt die cuts.

MFTv Congratulations Embossed Card

mftv

We are admittedly smitten with the cute shaker cards that can be created with the new April 2014 Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Die-namics but using it with our Embossing Pad to create a subtly textured panel is a pretty  great option as well. Highlighting an “A” and adding some stars from the Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics makes it perfectly clear that this card is intended for a star.

MFTv I Think You’re Awesome Shimmer Card

mftv

Creating beautiful custom shimmer paper is just a couple of easy steps away. By combining our Sheer Shimmer Mist with the Steel Shimmer Mist, you can adjust the intensity of color to create a beautiful ombre panel that becomes the perfect base for your card projects. Some simple embossing, a pop of color and pattern along the edge, and a handful of sparky sequins complete the look.

MFTv You Make Me a Happy Camper

mftv

We have such a fun card for you this week. The assembly is minimal…a total piece of cake. The real fun is in pulling out your markers and doing a little coloring – it’s not just for kids, you know! You’ll see how to add an embossed detail to your base panel using one of our stencils in conjunction with the Embossing Pad Combo. The Sun Ray Stencil embossed on Lemon Drop provides the perfect amount of texture and adds that sunny touch our little camping scene is grounded on.

MFTv Wildflowers Centerpieces Card

mftv

Our Centerpieces line is designed to make creating a stunning focal point for your projects as simple as possible. The newest addition, Wildflowers Centerpieces, includes a stand alone framed image die that will create a beautiful floral scene, as well as a secondary die that will result in coordinating flower heads and leaves with just a single pass through your die cutting machine.  We’ve even taken the guesswork out of assembly by arranging the pieces in the same order that they would be applied to the base piece. Use them all, or use just a few like the card below to make a subtle but sure impact.

MFTv Be Amazing Bokeh Effect Card

mftv

“Bokeh” in photographic terms indicates a slight blur or shift in focus. It’s an intentional look to add artistic effect – not the result of a shaky hand ;) Mimicking bokeh with stencils and ink is a simple task as long as you’re prepared with the right materials and a quick technique tutorial. In our project this week, that intentional blur adds a softness to the card that is reinforced by subtle color choices and the warmth of the gold paper and ink. Choosing a mixed media or watercolor paper as your base is the key to preventing warping.

In this episode of MFTv, a number of new stamps and Die-namics are combined into one standout design. We love how the subtle color palette is such a perfect foil for the pop of red brought in by the die cut sentiment and felt hearts.
