Our March card kit is ideal for whimsy-loving, color-craving, card-making machines. Doodled Blooms includes two stamp sets AND two Die-namics – all of which combine for endless crafting opportunities. The Doodled Blooms stamp set includes (7) flowers and (4) stems. Each image features fun-to-color doodled lines and encompasses a wide range of sizes so you can build a unique, dynamic bouquet or field perfect for frolicking. The coordinating Die-namics provides for perfectly sized die cuts every time. It is open inside to allow you to stamp then cut OR cut then stamp. This feature makes the Die-namics lighter weight and allows for easier removal from the die. More Essential Sentiments is the follow up to the Essential Sentiments stamp set. This set includes a wide-ranging collection of greetings, phrases, and sentiments in a clean, legible sans serif font. It will quickly become a go-to set both for pairing with your Doodled Blooms images as well as combining with virtually any other images in your crafting arsenal. The Interactive Rectangle Word Windows Die-namics includes three sizes designed to perfectly accommodate all of the phrases in More Essential Sentiments. These dies feature three cut edges, and one embossed edge, for creating a flap to conceal your sentiments. In addition to (10) sheets of Smooth White Card Stock, you’ll also receive (10) A2 envelopes in 5 bright colors. These colorful envelopes are simply begging to be accented with the Doodled Blooms images for a perfectly complementary enclosure for your handcrafted cards.

Product Spotlight: Chinese Takeout & Good Fortune

Nothing spells great evening in like some delicious takeout and a little crafting! Your future contains an abundance of fun crafting opportunities thanks to the Good Fortune stamp set. The pagoda image and bold greetings are the perfect way to finish off the Chinese Takeout container while the nine fortunes are designed to fit the fortune cookie paper strips. The exciting Chinese Takeout Die-namics  allows you to create an interactive card featuring a concealed fortune. Use the small slit die to create a hidden notch under your fortune cookie to allow the paper fortune slip to slide in completely masked until your recipient pulls it out for the big reveal.

Take a Master Class from No-Line Coloring Artist Jane Allen at the MFT Boutique

We are more than a little excited to have Jane Allen joining us at the MFT Boutique for a master class in the art of no-line coloring. Jane was one of our 2016 Card Design Superstars and is currently doing a monthly blog feature for us called Artistic Expression with Jane Allen. I think you’ll agree that she has a special talent!

Here’s a sample of some of her past work featuring an assortment of adorable MFT characters!

The schedule for each class day is as follows:

Morning Session – 9 AM – 12 PM

Lunch Break – 12 PM – 2 PM

Afternoon Session – 2 PM – 5 PM

During the morning session, Jane will be teaching us the basic techniques of no-line coloring. The afternoon session will culminate in the grand finale of implementing the techniques you’ve learned to create your very own masterpiece.

Each day of class will result in three finished cards, and will be identical in content. You simply need to register for the class day that best suits your schedule.

Your class fee of $75 will cover all supplies with the exception of the Copic markers listed below and your favorite stamp tools and adhesives.

Please bring the following Copic marker colors with you on class day:

Greens: G40, YG61, YG63, YG67, YG17, G94
Grays: W1, C0, C1, C2, C4, C6, C8
Yellows: YR0000, YR000, Y15, YR15
Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Blue: B000
…. Colorless Blender: …. 0

We will have a limited supply of the colors Jane will be using available for purchase.

PLEASE NOTE: Each class will accomodate a maximum of 30 students and we expect both classes to sell out quickly. There will be no kits or online component to this class – this technique-based lesson will only be available in person, during the class time listed. Classes must be pre-paid. Due to the limited seating availability and special nature of this event, no refunds will be given if you are not able to attend.

Updated March 20, 2017: Saturday, April 22nd registration is closed.

Register for Sunday, April 23rd HERE

We can’t wait to see you at this very special event!

Release Replay: March 2017

Release Replay

Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you!

Handmade card from Inge Groot featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Elements from Blueprints 31 form the base of Inge’s look while beautifully colored characters from Lions and Tigers are the stars of the show.

Blueprints are excellent for creating interest and depth – as they’re designed to coordinate easily, it makes assembly a breeze! Adding some die-cut greenery behind your characters adds a sense of place to your scene in quick fashion.

Handmade card from Melania Deasy featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

The Sushi Date pandas are here to serve. Melania’s inviting color scheme is both perfect for her sushi elements as well as a cool and calming choice for her scene elements.

Look closely…Melania’s lanterns are hung from trimmed clotheslines included in the Bundle of Baby Clothes Die-namics. Her graduated colors are complemented by the sequins she enclosed in each compartment as well – what a great way to carry out a theme to perfection!

This is just the beginning – keep on clicking to see how others on our team interpreted this month’s replay.

MFTv – Glitter Rainbow

mftv

It’s a well-known fact that glitter is a pretty divisive subject in the crafting world…love it or hate it, it definitely inspires strong feelings. If you fall on the “hate it” side of the divide though, maybe it’s because you love the look but aren’t thrilled by the application and mess it generates. If that describes your attitude, we may just convert you with today’s episode of MFTv! Stephanie is sharing some fantastic tips for using our colorful collection of microfine glitters – just the ticket for adding some sparkle to a lucky St. Patrick’s Day inspired card!

Critter Clan – Doodle Coloring with Sandy Allnock

Create8Logo

Happy March, friends! I’m Sandy Allnock, coloring addict…back with another video for you this month!

Sandy Allnock

Before I get started – I want to address what you might be thinking: I don’t see color in this picture. It’s not coloring! Well, technically, black is the absence of color, and white is ALL colors of the spectrum. So even though I’m coloring by doodling – there’s more color here than you might have guessed!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

These cards are also clean and simple – they make for a quick card but really cute, and still have your love poured into them. Check out the video for tips on how I created these sweet cards using Critter Clan!

Doesn’t that make you want to get out a pen and start doodling? It’s so relaxing to just mindlessly fill in patterns. Think of all the cute MFT stamps you can use to apply this technique!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I think the horse is my favorite – he’s got the most spaces to fill in with the doodling. You could do his entire body and leave his mane and tail white, or just use different textures and intensities to create a difference between them.

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

And then…there’s the little fox. I have a special place in my heart for any fox, know what I mean? This little guy is so sweet, and I’ll be getting out my Copics to color him over on Instagram today – so be sure to pop over and see him!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

One of the best parts of this kind of a technique – you can get your stamping done, then take any black pen and hit the road to doodle at baseball practice, or while waiting in the card- any time you have a few minutes to just doodle! I hope you try playing with simple sketching skills, and add a little fun to some of your stamps!

See you next month – or over on my blog! (psssst I’m going to be having a ninja battle over there soon. #justsaying LOL!)
