MFTv Layered Snowflakes

mftv

Creating a mixed media card doesn’t require a lot of supplies or tools – just a handful of basics and your limitless imagination! I used a couple of our MFT mists on a panel of mixed media card stock to layer shimmering color and subtle pattern.  Three layers of a die-cut snowflake in a variety of materials are a simple and beautiful accent to finish the look.

MFTv Merry & Bright

This week’s episode of MFTv features the barest of pinks mixed with a hint of elegant silver. The Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics is used to cut three identical snowflakes that are attached together to form a beautiful three dimensional element for your cards and projects. This technique could be used to create delicate ornaments for a tree or window display as well!

The Adhesive Sheets we carry in the boutique make custom glitter designs an absolute breeze and you’ll be amazed at the ease with which the peek-a-boo leaves were created with the Out on a Limb Die-namics.

The new Falling Leaves Die-namics are inherently dimensional thanks to the emboss line detailing. Sponge on a variety of rich, autumnal hues though and the lines are further enhanced resulting in highly detailed, amazingly realistic accents for your cards and other crafty projects. This simple design highlights the depth of the leaves and allows you to spend your time on the details because the assembly is so easy!

MFTv Shout Hooray

If only it were so easy to add a splash of fun pattern to real balloons! In this week’s episode, I’m dressing up the Balloon STAX Die-namics to add a special touch to an otherwise quick and easy card design. Little details like a subtly stamped background panel and twine-tied knots make your assembly interesting and your recipient smile. A high-contrast sentiment stamped in Sweet Tooth Premium Dye Ink on a Steel Grey background completes the look.

Fond Farewells and a Fresh Face

Sadly, we’re saying goodbye to five of our lovely and talented designers today. I know you’ll agree that they’ve contributed so much to our community with their incredible generosity of time and talent. We’ll miss them greatly and wish them all the absolute best in the future. To each of you, thank you.

In addition to goodbye, we also have a hearty welcome to share. In June, Teri Anderson was our guest designer and she produced some truly stellar work that blew us away in its creativity. We asked her to join our happy team and she said yes. Hooray! Beginning with our July Release Countdown (that’s just two days away if you’re curious,) Teri will be a regular member of our Creative Team. Please join us in welcoming her!

Teri’s created this beautiful card to introduce herself. I think it’s pretty apparent why we’re so giddy to have her, right?

MFTv Shine

mftv

In this week’s episode of MFTv, you’ll find a simple design and assembly process punched up by the addition of an embossed sentiment, puffy sticker-like filament accent, and a specialty card stock accent. Our Blueprints 15 Die-namics makes quick work of creating the base pieces while Die-namics and a stamp set from Laina Lamb Design provide the rest. Quick and easy is the name of the game this week, with undeniably eye-catching appeal – you can’t beat that!
