Count Down to the End of 2018 by Saving 18% plus an Eye-Catching Spinner Card This Week on MFTv

Before we get to today’s post, a quick reminder to use code SAVE18 at checkout to apply an 18% discount to your entire order, even the new release.


A spinner card is a fun, interactive design option that showcases sweet images like the new Butterfly Kisses character beautifully. An added benefit is that the charming little butterfly is showcased both in and out of the card making its display potential shoot through the roof.

The symmetrical nature of Butterfly Kisses makes it a perfect candidate for this technique. You’ll see in the video how mesmerizing it is to see it (very appropriately!) flutter as it twirls — you can’t even tell the difference between the two die cuts thanks to the consistent coloring Stephanie has achieved.

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly in This Week’s MFTv

A Christmas tree branch evokes so many holidays feelings. It conjures memories of hanging favorite keepsake ornaments on the tree, immediately brings to mind that unmistakable piney scent, and helps us envision a home adorned for the holidays. Stephanie wanted to recreate that feeling for this week’s card, and despite not having the perfect stamp image for the branch she visualized, she’s managed to bring her vision to life anyway.

Improvisational crafting sometimes produces the best possible outcome — this tree bough Stephanie created with a simple bit of greenery proves that. Don’t be limited by what you *think* you have…you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you can create with what you have on hand.
