August 2018 Release: Countdown Kickoff

Welcome to the kickoff of our August 2018 Release! It’s such an exciting time each month when we finally get to share the products we’ve been working so hard to bring to life for you. Let’s take a look at our initial selection of August sneak peeks.

  • You can enter to win by commenting on each of the five countdown posts on the MFT Blog before Noon EDT on August 7. 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 7:30 PM EDT on August 7 on the MFT Blog.

PAINTED POPPIES 

With a brilliant pop of red and dramatic flash of black, poppies are classic, elegant, and a beautiful symbol of honor, remembrance, and luxury. The new Painted Poppies stamp set features a graceful line-art style that makes them a natural choice for any number of coloring mediums. They’re bold enough to anchor a card with a simple sentiment or to even stand alone on striking notecards. The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

FRIENDSHIP ROCKS

Friendship Rocks features three sweet songstresses in a variety of poses…from softly crooning to all-out belting. Combine them into one fabulous girl group or showcase them singularly, perched upon the included stage. Accent your concert with a cluster of stars and add a rocking sentiment for the encore. Finally, present your look to raucous applause for the lucky recipient! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

TAKE THE STAGE DIE-NAMICS 

Every performer deserves a stage and now, you can showcase entertaining scenes with the new Take the Stage Die-namics. This set includes all the pieces necessary to construct star-worthy scenes for your ballerinas and rock stars. In addition to providing the side curtains, tiebacks, and a trio of swags, we’ve added an edge-only die to cut a full stage curtain at the length of your choosing.

Miss You is etched together to provide for perfect placement and is this month’s beautiful new Free with $60 Die-namics.
