The August Release Countdown Begins

NewReleaseCountdown_Day7

We’ve brewed up a Fab-BOO-lous release for you this month! A spooky selection of goodies that will have you itching to start those Halloween cards, party invitations, and crafty projects. We’re thrilled this month to be introducing a brand new illustrator to the MFT family – just keep scrolling to find out who she is and see what her MFT debut includes (hint: it’s adorably scary.) We’re rounding out the August release with some geek chic and classic pattern staples. Ready, set, GO.

  • One winner will be randomly selected from each countdown day, and all winners will be announced at 8:30 PM EST on August 12 on the MFT Blog.
Blueprints 18 takes the guesswork out of creating cool, complementary angled panels for your A2 cards. Use the panels independently as layering pieces or create a color-block look by combining the pieces. Punctuate the gap created by the panels with a row of peek-a-boo circles or stars or, use each angled panel alone to add dimension and contrast. The double stitched circle creates a stitched die cut while leaving behind a window with a stitched frame. The second circle element layers perfectly with the stitched component. The fishtail flag and button elements both include the addition of a textural emboss line detail. The two star dies will create three separate stars – one, a star outline – that all layer together perfectly.

Follow the provided digital sketches, or become your own architect. Either way, Blueprints is the foundation of your creativity. MFT__Blueprints18_Sketches

Brand new illustrator, Miss Tiina,  brings us the adorably spooky Trick or Treat stamp set and Die-namics. Mix and match the characters, sentiments, and decorative accessories to build mini scenes. This set includes mummy, zombie, and ghost characters as well as two themed sentiments and a variety of extras to complete the tableau. The coordinating Die-namics set will create perfectly sized die cuts for your stamped images and in addition, includes a cute “boo” wordart element. Stay tuned for more Miss Tiina goodies in the coming months! Print

Spotlight Sentiments offer a plethora of stamping options. Create the look of a repeated sentiment with a single impression. The individual outlined sentiment allows you the ability to punch up the look by adding some contrasting color. The generous size makes these a perfect fit for horizontal or vertical A2 cards as well as the angled panels included in Blueprints 18. Ink up a single line for a thinner text border option or create a wider border by using the design as-is.

This addition to our line of STAX Die-namics will create circular elements comprised of peek-a-boo holes. The Stitchable Dot Circle STAX allows you to layer contrasting card stock beneath for a pop of color or use the holes as an easy stitching guide. These dies can be used with the Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics to create stitched frames or treat pockets.
