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

mftv

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.

In this week’s episode, trendy headphones in basic black and white are grounded by a standout background created in a rainbow of colors and accented by a hint of shimmer. Stencils are an incredibly versatile tool and this MFTv showcases a couple of those techniques.

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 ;)

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

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!

MFTv Thinking of You

A simple design is made elegant with classic paper choices and the addition of fine glitter in a stunning rust hue. The Adhesive Sheets we carry in the boutique make custom glitter designs an absolute breeze and you’ll be amazed at the ease with which the peek-a-boo leaves were created with the Out on a Limb Die-namics.

The new Falling Leaves Die-namics are inherently dimensional thanks to the emboss line detailing. Sponge on a variety of rich, autumnal hues though and the lines are further enhanced resulting in highly detailed, amazingly realistic accents for your cards and other crafty projects. This simple design highlights the depth of the leaves and allows you to spend your time on the details because the assembly is so easy!

MFTv Shout Hooray

If only it were so easy to add a splash of fun pattern to real balloons! In this week’s episode, I’m dressing up the Balloon STAX Die-namics to add a special touch to an otherwise quick and easy card design. Little details like a subtly stamped background panel and twine-tied knots make your assembly interesting and your recipient smile. A high-contrast sentiment stamped in Sweet Tooth Premium Dye Ink on a Steel Grey background completes the look.
