Tags are such a versatile design element — whether you integrate them into your card designs or use them to accent a package, they always provide interest and an ideal base for sentiments and imagery. With the Tag Builder Blueprints 2 die set, you’ll love to mix and match three tag bases with three unique tag toppers. Hole reinforcements are provided to strengthen the hole in anticipation of a bit of twine or string and to add one more pop of color if you so desire. This die set has been updated to remove holiday-themed elements and provide more versatility to your craft stash.

Peek-a-boo holes and stitched details are some of the standout features of Blueprints 23. Use the trio of peek-a-boo circles to frame images or sentiments — either within your card front or as part of a layering piece. A scalloped border dies allow you to create a tidy stitched detail along the straight edge…feature it prominently or tuck it under other elements if it doesn't fit your design plan. The large rectangle panel includes stitching along both long edges making it a beautiful pairing with the scalloped border. Complete your look by adding your greeting stamped on one of two included sentiment strips. This set has been modified from the original design be removing extraneous elements and narrowing the width of the scalloped border.

Blueprints 24 is prime for kickstarting your next project! Construct your card design on a stitched rectangle base and layer on banner shapes, a rounded corner sentiment strip, and tab. Use the circle to create either a window element or a layering piece with a stitched perimeter. Alternatively, try stringing together a decorative banner for a party or holiday theme with the two included banner elements — one featuring two rounded corners and the other, a fishtail flag design with stitched detailing. This set has been modified from the original design be eliminating extraneous elements, adding a stitched perimeter to the fishtail banner element, and removing stitching from the tab element.

The main frame features stitching around the perimeter in the perfect size for your A2 cards, and the tri-window frame, featuring stitching around each window and the edges as well as an outer stitched line, gives you plenty of options for featuring sweet images or heartfelt greetings. Sentiment strips in two lengths provide a perfect home for your sentiment, or the option of using them as classic accent pieces. Finish everything off with an adorable circle with a sweet heart in the middle. Let your creativity soar with Blueprints 29!

Blueprints 31 includes so many mix-and-match opportunities! Two large stitched rounded rectangle panels can be used solo, are layered for extra depth and contrast. The circular frame element coordinates with our Shaker Pouches to create seamless shakers with ease. Use the edge-only die to create a coordinating mat or shaped card edge for the frame and complete your look with the included sentiment strips and accent flag.

Always fun to have a chance at getting a retired die!

kathleen dumpert February 19, 2024

One of my very first set of dies was the basic rectangle set (a2) It’s no exaggeration to say that I have used that set at least a 1000 times. Still going strong! The basics are a must have. My advice to people who are just starting out in the card/crafting world—get yourself a basic set, you won’t be sorry. Thanks MFT for the years of solid, fab products.

Mary February 19, 2024

Basics are such a good way to start a collection! I especially love the tags! (and the Blueprints — so useful).

RobiW February 19, 2024

Some of my very first “basic” die sets are from MFT. Love seeing these Blueprints back again!

Blueprints 31! I love that set! Glad to see it’s making a comeback :)
