MFTv – Somebunny

mftv

Spring blues and greens provide a welcoming color combo perfectly suited to the scene that’s been created with the delightful Somebunny stamp set and Die-namics. Starting a sentiment on the card front and continuing it within the card entices the recipient to take a closer work and truly appreciate the thought and effort you’ve put into it.

MFTv – You Add Color to My Life

mftv

A simple technique results in vibrant color and subtle texture in this week’s episode of MFTv. By simply mixing the smallest bit of embossing paste with a bit of “smooshed” Premium Dye Ink, you can create a beautiful rainbow gradient of color. Specialty paper is an ideal match to the Television Die-namics and some vellum replicates a screen for perfect sentiment placement.

MFTv – I’m Glad You’re Mine

mftv

A relatively flat design is punched up with lots of coloring details and the aid of some dimensional tape in this week’s episode of MFTv. Using a scrap of Black Licorice Card Stock to first cut with the Stitched Rectangle STAX and then, the Stitched Speech Bubble Edges, produces a custom die cut that is stitched all the way around the perimeter for a beautiful finished look.

Layering background patterns is a fast, simple way of adding easy interest to your cards. This week’s episode of MFTv features lots of pattern and layered elements done in a minimal palette to prevent competing elements from overwhelming the design. The Sheet Music Background is such a perfect choice to pair with the Keep on Rockin’ stamp set and MP3 Player Die-namics – music lovers of any age will enjoy this design!

MFTv – You’re the Best

Before I get to today’s post, I must take a minute to sing the praises and say a fond farewell to Jackie Pedro. Jackie has been on the Design Team, producing incredibly beautiful and inspiring projects for us, since 2011. The time has come for her to move onto other things in her life and though we are so sad to see her go, we wish her the absolute best in everything that comes her way. Thank you so much for being a part of the MFT team all these years – you will be missed!

Donut you know how many sweet puns can be created around this delectable, round treat? The Donuts and Sprinkles stamp set is fantastic for it’s ability to create sentiments that can be split to provide a bold, graphic look on the card front and finished within the card. A smattering of sprinkles is an easy accent. Creating cards that are as beautiful on the inside as they are out doesn’t have to take a lot of time or effort but when you do, it shows an extra level of care that your recipient will notice.

MFTv – Each New Day

We’re thinking spring with this episode of MFTv. The new Pure Plum color is such a beautiful complement to Sour Apple – it was a natural choice to pair the two for this fresh design. Subtle details like a distressed background and stitched border frame finish the card perfectly.

MFTv Cool Day

happythanksgiving

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends from MFT. I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing day with family! I do have another episode of MFTv to share with you today if you aren’t too sleepy to enjoy it ;)

mftv

This week, I decided to create a card featuring a simple design and assembly process. This allowed me to spend some time relaxing by watercoloring my card background and stamped image from the Cool Day set. Watercolor is so forgiving and the look it produces can range from subtle and washed out to deep and vibrant – layering is your friend! I hope you’ll give watercolor a try – it’s a beautiful technique and pairs so well with images stamped in our variety of Hybrid Ink options.

MFTv Layered Snowflakes

mftv

Creating a mixed media card doesn’t require a lot of supplies or tools – just a handful of basics and your limitless imagination! I used a couple of our MFT mists on a panel of mixed media card stock to layer shimmering color and subtle pattern.  Three layers of a die-cut snowflake in a variety of materials are a simple and beautiful accent to finish the look.

This week’s episode of MFTv features the barest of pinks mixed with a hint of elegant silver. The Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics is used to cut three identical snowflakes that are attached together to form a beautiful three dimensional element for your cards and projects. This technique could be used to create delicate ornaments for a tree or window display as well!
