Are you ready?  Let’s get started with some of the new stamps and Die-namics making their debut today. First up today is a new stamp set and coordinating Die-namics die set from Lisa Johnson Designs.  Sweet Roses is a beautiful floral set containing both solid and line-art images in two different sizes, along with everyday sentiments.

The Roses and Leaves Die-namics die set coordinates with the roses and leaves in the Sweet Roses stamp set.  Die-cut each flower and leaves image, then stamp with the coordinating solid or line-art image to create beautiful roses.

You can find a quick video featuring the Roses and Leaves Die-namics HERE or simply click play below: We have two new adorable Pure Innocence images to introduce today: Pure Innocence Serenity and Pure Innocence Little Gardner.

One more stamp set making its debut today is Mod Borders, from Laina Lamb Design. Create fun borders and accents on your cards and scrapbook layouts, or stamp the images repeatedly to create your own patterned paper.

You loved the debut of our new Blueprints 1 Die-namics during our March release, and we are thrilled to bring you the Blueprints 2 Die-namics for the April Release! Pair Blueprints 2 Die-namics with any stamp set and follow the provided sketches, or mix and match the elements to become your own architect.

You can find a quick video featuring the Blueprints 2 Die-namics HERE or simply click play below: Bottom Line Alphabet Die-namics is our newest alphabet.  The bold, graphic letters will make a statement on any card or scrapbook layout.

Our new Bottom Line Numbers and Symbols Die-namics die set is the perfect companion to our new Bottom Line Alphabet Die-namics.

And if all of the new stamps and Die-namics weren’t enough, we are also introducing a brand new color collection to our Relenishments line!  Factory Green will be available in our Premium Dye Ink, Premium Dye Ink Refill, card stock, and buttons, on April 9th at 10 PM EST. Here you can see and compare the range of colors in our Green Replenishments line.

One more addition to the MFT Boutique is Smooth White Card Stock. Our Smooth White Card Stock offers a very smooth finish, ideal for stamping bold or solid images using our Premium Dye Ink Pads.

I wanted to create a clean, bold birthday card using Lisa’s new Sweet Roses set and Mod Borders from Laina Lamb. I LOVE how it turned out!

I stamped the chevron border stamp along the top and bottom of my card front using Black Licorice ink, then stamped Make a Wish from Birthday Sentiments and embossed it with black powder with a touch of added glitter so it would sparkle. I stamped my rose in Wild Cherry and Electric Red inks, and my leaves in Sour Apple and Jellybean Green inks. Then I added two thin strips of Wild Cherry card stock to act as a border to frame my sentiment and flower.

Once my card front was complete, I mounted it to a Kraft card base.

Take a tour of these new products being released on April 9th at 10 PM EST by visiting our designers listed below.
