Let’s get started! Our first introduction today is the fantastic new set, Life’s Direction.

We’re thrilled over your enthusiasm for Mona Pendleton’s new line!  We have another set designed by Mona to introduce today called Distressed Background Blocks.  True to Mona’s mixed media style, these background blocks will give your cards and projects that mixed media look with minimal effort.

Our new Chicken Wire Die-namics layers perfectly on a standard A2 card for a big impact. Layer it over or under your card elements for a decorative accent.

You can see a quick video featuring the Chicken Wire Die-namics HERE, or simply click play below. Our new Happy Hellos Die-namics dies are large enough to take center stage on your projects, but work as an accent, also. You can see a quick video featuring the new Happy Hellos Die-namics HERE, or simply click play below. The next stencil in our brand new MIX-ables Stencil series is the fun Graduated Dots.

We’ve added new colors to our Premium Dye Ink collection this month. Our new Red Hot Premium Dye Ink will be available as a full-sized pad and as a refill during our May Release. The Premium Dye Ink and Refill will join the Red Hot Replenishments that are already available in the MFT Boutique.

I knew I liked Life’s Direction when Amy Rohl originally sent the set concept to Jody and I, but I didn’t realize how much I’d enjoy stamping with it! I’ve had so many ideas for this set, and haven’t even begun to scratch the surface. Today I’m sharing the first card I made using this set combined with Western Backgrounds and Fishtail Flags STAX. I made my own speckled paper by following the tutorial Joanne shows in THIS post. How fun! I started by stamping Western Backgrounds onto Whip Cream card stock using Kraft ink. It almost looks like it’s embossed, the detail is so rich. I cut the same size of Fishtail Flags in 3 different colored card stocks, and then stamped my images using Hot Fudge. I then speckled my paper using Hot Fudge ink as well. There was so much texture going on that I didn’t want to overdo it, but felt it needed a little something, so I added a row of mini brads, and a red star from Star STAX to pick up the red I’d used in the Flags. PERFECT. Make sure you visit our Designers blogs today, and leave a comment each day on this blog for a chance to win a $75 gift voucher. We could all use a little spending money, right?  Take a tour of these new products, being released on May 7th at 10 PM EST, by visiting our designers listed below. And our May Guest Designers:  Kim O’Connell and Tricia Traxler.

    I think the distressed background blocks are going to come in handy for achieving that perfect, well-worn look, with less steps, & in less time! I love the trendy backgrounds (checkered, spotted, chicken wire), & I’d love to see more! Keep up the good work, Mona… everything’s great so far! (:
