MFT Creative Construction...

Today is the Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge over at MFT.  Here is the challenge we were given...

Stars will never go out of style. From masculine looks to dreamy scenes, they have a way of adding something special to any project you include them on. Our team loves them too and in this month’s collection of projects, they’ve used Blueprints featuring stars to craft spectacular looks worthy of any recipient or occasion.

I loved the rainbow dies and the star dies, included in this last release, so I had to use them, along with some stars from Blueprints 18.  


I used the Die-namics Inside and out Stitched Stars along with the Die-namics End of the Rainbow Dies  to create the card front.  I added in several little stars from Blueprints 18 for a finishing touch.  The sentiment is from Rainbow Greetings.  I cut out a piece of vellum and then heat embossed the sentiment.  I added some Glossy Accents to each of the tiny stars for some added shine.  


Head on over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has whipped up for today.  Thanks so much for stopping in!

MFT Card Kit Countdown...


I've been seeing tons of excitement about this latest MFT Flashy Florals Card Kit!  It's so gorgeous isn't it? I have one more card to share today using this new kit.  It's a CAS, kinda bright, quick and easy card...


I took the flower centers and picked 2 colors and made this fun background.  I used Lime Light and Razzle Berry.  


I used the Inside and Out Stitched Rectangle to create a pop up in the middle of the patterned background and then simply added the hello sentiment in black.  And done!


So that is it for the May Card Kit.  Head on over to the MFT blog for lots more fun things to see!  Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!

MFT Card Kit Countdown Day 2...


It's day 2 of the May MFT Kit Countdown.  The images in this set are gorgeous and oh so versatile.  Here is a quick and simple card using one image....


I took the leaf image and stamped it randomly around the top.  I took some gold cardstock and added a strip on the front panel.  I cut it off at a diagonal and then added in a white "thanks" die cut with some fun foam.  


There will be lots more to see over at the MFT Blog!  Thanks so much for coming by today!

MFT May Card Kit Countdown...


The new MFT kit for May is here and its so cute!  These florals are gorgeous and so easy to stamp.


I picked some random colors and stamped them out.  The dies are open, of course, and cut the flowers  out perfectly centered.  I added the flowers to a scored card base.  Last, I die cut the hello out with adhesive paper and covered it in glitter.  CAS and so easy!


Head on over to the MFT blog to see more about the kit.  I will be back tomorrow with another peek! Thanks for stopping in!
