The April Release Countdown Begins

NewReleaseCountdown_Day7

Oh, baby! Spring is about rebirth and renewal as flowers poke their way up through cold dirt and buds sprout fresh on the trees. This month, we’re featuring a variety of products that spotlight “the new” – accomplishments, achievements, and milestones. Over the next week, we’ll share all of our new April, 2014 products as well as spotlight them in use on our talented creative team member blogs. Ready?

  • You can enter to win by commenting on each of the seven countdown posts on the MFT Blog before Noon EST on April 8. Please leave only one comment per person, per day.
  • One winner will be randomly selected from each countdown day, and all winners will be announced at 8PM EST on April 8 on the MFT Blog.

It’s hip to be square and our Blueprints 14 Die-namics is a great starting point for your next hip card project. Whether you use the provided digital sketches or mix-and-match with other Blueprints in the series, you’ll have a stunning card in a matter of minutes. This set includes a stitched panel and layering square with a single rounded corner for added interest. Add more layers to build a feminine and floral scene or button things up for something more masculine. Use the cut and re-cut technique with the peek-a-boo hole element to add a dotted edge to any piece. Whichever look you choose, Blueprints 14 is just the ticket.

Follow the provided digital sketches, or become your own architect. Either way, Blueprints is the foundation of your creativity.

We have some BIG news this month! Say hello to our new line of Hybrid Inks. These pigment based inks dry like dye inks and are permanent on paper surfaces, acid-free, archival, and fade resistant. These inks feature a raised felt pad and are slightly larger than our current ink pads. Inks can be heat set on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal, and clay. As these inks are fast drying and waterproof, they cannot be embossed with embossing powder.

For this initial release we have twelve colors, in both ink pad and refill formats, that coordinate with our existing Replenishments products. Buy each color individually OR get the entire twelve color collection, in either pads or refills, for the price of eleven. We’re excited about the possibilities this new formula offers and we know you’ll love them as much as we do!

So, you’ve seen the first day of peeks…now, onto the projects! Click through to each of our Design Team member blogs to see what they’ve created with these inspiring new products. And remember, the fun is just beginning. We’ll be here every day until the new releases become available on April 8!

    Love the Blue Prints 14..a complete innovative problem solver to jump start your creative juices. The elephants are so darling, that little rattle and die are so cute and the font is pretty. Love the colors and their names. The Starry Night Stencil goes so well with the sentiments. Would be great for any holiday–would like to get my hands on that. Really liked Debbie’s card it is so pretty. Looking forward to seeing the ideas all these talented lady’s are going to share with us.
