Wonky panels add interest and whimsy to your cards and the new Blueprints 15 Die-namics makes creating them a breeze. This set includes 2 such elements that will line up perfectly with the included back panel. The back panel features a stitched detail as does the circle element which includes interior stitching, as well as exterior stitching that is perfect for creating a cool, peek-a-boo hole in your card front. Add texture and dimension to your cards with the double-row hole strip that provides the perfect opportunity for easy stitching. Finish things off with the remaining accents for an assortment of looks that will accommodate any occasion.

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

Our initial introduction of Hybrid Inks was such a thrill! We’re excited to share our second batch of colors with you this month – thirteen new shades in both ink pad and refill formats, that coordinate with our existing Replenishments products. 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. Are you curious about what these inks are capable of? Our team has worked hard to show what they can do and just how versatile they are. Check out their reviews here and here.

InkPadBundle1

InkRefillBundle2Ultra Clean is a new addition to our line. It’s perfect for cleaning your stamps and awesome for hybrid ink cleaning. Keep your stamps squeaky clean for years of happy stamping.

    Sharing this so you can laugh at my dorkiness. Just saw the “Ultra Clean is a new addition to our line” and I looked through all the color swatch thumbnails TWICE trying to figure out which color was “Ultra Clean”

    HAHA! :P

    I have always liked the blueprints since they came out. They are wonderful ways to create cards. However the Linen background stamp is gorgeous and those new hybrid colors are wonderful. I am wild over Wild Cherry and Pink Lemonade. Just can’t seem to get enough of MFT. Thanks so much for the wonderful products and inspiration

    Love, love, love the blueprints 15. I can see this working great for school themed cards and office themed ones both feminine and masculine. Several dies seem like they would coordinate well with other blueprints or other dies.

    The Sea Life set is adorable too.
