BLUEPRINTS 32 DIE-NAMICS

We’ve created this Blueprints set to take full advantage of every square inch of your A2 cards. The largest frame measures 4 ¼” x 5 ½” to reach the edge of your card front – once you’ve added the frame, get busy filling it with the other fun elements included in the set. A stitched panel, accent strips, flags, and tabs provide excellent layering options – the notched tab features an emboss line rather than a cut line so you can craft a pocket to tuck treasures in! Complete your look with a trio of hearts, peek-a-boo chevrons, and photo corners. Follow the included sketches or get creative by mixing things up either within the set, or by adding elements from other kits.

Going out with a PIG Bang

We have one last guest post from Svetlana Pavlova to end our month before we start our April Release Countdown tomorrow. What a great way to wrap up March before diving into another exciting release!

Oh! I had so much fun working with these. This time I made another card with these funny piglets from Sow Much Cuteness. Just like this little piggy, I was jumping around the apartment scattering stamps instead of flowers and singing what a happy day it is today!

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

In fact, everything is super simple here!

First I created a stenciled background on the card stock. I added the rays of sunlight with the Radiating Rays Stencil. The grass was made by using the negative from the Grassy Fields Die-namics as a mask. I just took a frame die with rounded edges from Blueprints 31 and cut out the panel from the background. I kept all the pieces.

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I’ve adhered the negative from the background to the card base and to add more dimension to the card I used foam tape to adhere the inset panel.

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

The piglet and flowers I’ve stamped and colored with Copic markers. Then I added the sentiment and put the card together!

Baby Love

Svetlana Pavlova is back with us today sharing the most inspiring use of our March Release baby products. Her projects are packed with innovative uses for these sweet designs!

Hi everyone! I’m back with more projects. This one features Welcome, Baby and the Bundle of Baby Clothes Die-namics. The entire release is amazing and so fun to work with it!

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I’ve stamped all the sentiments with Versamark then heat embossed in white. I used Distress Inks to blend over the embossed text. After adding a few splashes of water, voila – the background is complete.

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Next I die cut a dress and onesies using Bundle of Baby Clothes, as well as a rattle. I used the Mesh Background on the baby clothes to make them more fun. I’ve added sentiments and used a banner from Blueprints 31 and put the cards together.

Handmade card from Svetlana Pavlova featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I was so inspired by these newborn sets, that I couldn’t help myself and created a coordinating gift set. Using sentiments from Welcome, Baby, I’ve stamp multiple times to create a custom gift wrap. For a note I made a little shaker card using the Baby Rattle Die-namics.

Creative Construction with Blueprints – Scallops, Scallops Everywhere

MFT_CreativeConstruction_SideBar

We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards (and tags!) 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 design 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.

Dainty, delicate scallops add femininity and softness to your creations. Our collection of Blueprints includes so many scallop options – from panels detailed by a perimeter of scallops, to edge-only dies that allow you to create panels of any size, you’ll find the perfect finishing touch for any project. Join our team this month as they share some of their own scalloped projects.

Handmade card from Keisha Campbell featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I love the impact of Keisha’s large scalloped panel, from Blueprints 1, combined with a punch of pattern from the Mini Hexagon Background. She has such a way with unexpected color combos that just work and that expanse of black and white she’s created is a perfect foil.

Handmade card from Karolyn Loncon featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Dainty scallops and a diminutive pink check are kind of perfect for a baby girl card. Karolyn has used Blueprints 1 for her card as well but she’s cut a rectangle from the center creating a frame for her sparkly pink rattle. I love the idea of adding a sentiment inside the rattle – so fun!

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