Barbara’s Crafty Christmas Tree!

Take a page from design team member Barbara Anders’s book and create your own wordy Christmas tree! Using two sizes of Styrofoam cones and the Art Expression Text stamp set, Barbara “grew” this project into something she can be proud to display in her home for the holidays! The trees look great on a mantle or as part of a festive centerpiece. There are plenty of possibilities when you’re willing to get crafty!

feathertrees

To complete this project, you’ll also need the Accent It – Feathers and Arrows Die-namics (Barbara used the smaller feather from the set to create the tree’s leaves), Primitive Cream card stock, and MFT ink in Kraft and Black Licorice. And like always, having a great imagination helps, also!

Release Rewind Day Two

RR-Wreath-in-the-making

If you think our all-new products are awesome, you should see them in action. Our design team has been hard at work, putting together inspiring projects of all types so that our November release will keep you busy up to our next big reveal! See the unique twists that each of our team members put on their cards and plan for a twist of your own. If you missed Part 1 of our Release Rewind, you can catch up HERE. And once you’ve got some big ideas bouncing around in your head, make sure you’re stocked up with all of the new products in the MFT boutique, found HERE!

WreathWe get excited when we see products used in unexpected ways. Kim has used the Layered Vine Border Die-namics to create a wreath that takes center stage on her card. She then used one of the components from the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics to create the bow, and finished it off with a Cheerful Christmas Greetings sentiment. Bravo!

RR-Wreath-in-the-makingShe used a Pierced Circle STAX as her guide to make sure the wreath was completely round. She carefully glued each side of the wreath, and then removed the circle before gluing the top portion.

See all of the fun, heartfelt, and exciting projects that our design team has assembled for you this week!

Then she created a frame using the Frame Builder Die-namics after she’d stamped the Kraft card stock with the Woodgrain Background stamp set.

No tricks, just treats! This Treat Tote Die-namics is easy to assemble and super handy for parties and events!  You’ll cut the Treat Tote twice to create a treat box which measures four inches wide when assembled.  The included handles attach on the front and the back, or side to side, and the included score lines ensure that the handles fold properly.  The Treat Tote will certainly sweeten any gift, and it’s just in time for the holidays.

Building your dream house can be expensive. We’ve got a smaller (but just as adorable) solution for you! Home Sweet Home Die-namics even includes a flower box and scalloped detailing on the roof, for a perfect country cottage. The solid windows can be cut out, leaving room to adhere the decorative paned window on top, offering a view of what is waiting “inside.” This Die-namics set fits perfectly on the front of the Treat Tote for a fun favor. It also fits the front of an A2 sized card.

Great things are in bloom here at MFT, starting with this hybrid Die-namics.  We’ve pioneered an interlocking petal design in our stunning new Hybrid Camellia Flower which when assembled, is an eye-catching focal point on whatever project you’re working on.

Print

We know that sometimes products are easier to use with a little bit of instruction, so watch the video below (or click HERE) to see one of our team members assemble this beautiful bloom! How will you make the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics your own?

Make all of your projects just a little bit greener with the Layered Leaves Die-namics. Add perfect contrast with light and dark green card stock, or give them a fall look with reds, yellows, browns, and oranges. You can even skip the layering, as the embossed leaves look fantastic all on their own.

Print

The Layered Leaves Die-namics look great on their own or paired with the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics.  You can see how to make other crafters green with envy using this die HERE, or click play below.

Help your projects *grow* even more beautiful with the Layered Vine Border Die-namics.

Print

It can be a jungle out there when it comes to choosing the right elements for your greeting cards. Click HERE or click play below to see how the Layered Vine Border Die-namics looks when put into use.

Each snowflake is unique, and that is very apparent in Mona Pendleton’s Sophisticated Snowflakes stamp set. Inspired by the beauty of nature with a delicate hint of lace, these stamps fit the bill for your more luxurious creations.

Print

Last month we introduced our rubber background sets, and I think it’s safe to say you LOVE them! This month we are back with our new Woodgrain Background.  Knock on wood, you want each and every project to turn out perfectly, and this premium quality rubber cling stamp set will ensure success with every use.  Perfect for recreating initials carved into a tree, or just as an intriguing pattern on a more simple card.  Use it with a large mount, OR put it on your desk image-side up, ink it up, lay your card stock on it, put a scratch piece of paper on top, and rub or use a brayer to transfer the image.

All that glitters is gold with our new Safety Orange Card Stock, buttons, and ink pad!

Safety OrangeYou can bring many of our newest products together to create adorable and heartfelt cards. The Woodgrain Background and Layered Leaves are a perfect combination, and you can add your own message using MFT Stamps and Die-namics.
