MFTv Birthday Wishes Chalkboard

mftv

In this week’s episode of MFTv, I’m using the new Blueprints 17 Die-namics to “build” a cool, freestanding chalkboard easel card. Watch the video to learn how I created the floating balloon look with the Balloon STAX Die-namics and to see how just how well the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings coordinate with this fun new Blueprints set.

Release Rewind Day One

Print

The countdown is over and we’re feverishly packing orders so we can bring the party to YOU. July products are making their way to homes everywhere – we know you’re anxiously awaiting that delightful “thud” on your doorstep! While you make your plan of attack, our designers have one last gasp of July inspiration. Day one of our Release Rewind begins now.

I used our new Tag Builder Blueprints 1 Die-namics to create these fun tags. This set has everything you need to create a huge variety of fun looks for gifts, labeling, treats, or card accents. Don’t forget that each Blueprints set includes a coordinating set of sketches – these tags are based on the download we’ve provided for this initial introduction! You can find the Blueprints downloads on the product page, or, download HERE.

I’ve simply added some pattern with the new Happy Birthday Background, a sentiment from the Delicious Birthday stamp set, and an accent from the Celebrate You stamp set and Die-namics to create this trio. We’re so happy to be expanding our Blueprints line into tag making – we hope you share our excitement!
