MFT Release Replay...

Hello!  I have a card today, for the MFT Release Replay.  The January MFT Release went live last week and is available to shop.  The Design Team is getting together today to share some more cards using this months new products!

MFT Release Replay

I created this CAS card using the new sentiment set called 100% Loveable.  I absolutely adore this handwritten font.  I inked it up with an ombre blend of Bubblegum and Red Hot inks.  Then I did a little embossing with a stitched heart.  I added strips of Gold Sparkle cardstock along the bottom and a strip of red paper from Tiny Hearts Brights paper pack to finish it off.

All the hearts...

Hello there!  It's Laurie Willison here with a couple of clean and simple Valentines cards.  If you follow my blog, you know I love white space!  I love to add simple details that make a pop.  I decided to make this first card nice and simple by using the die cuts from the Hearts Foam Front Die.

Queen and Company

I attached 2 of them to the card front, then peeled off the backing and added glitter to each of the hearts.  Last, I stamped the sentiment.  Clean and simple!

For this next card, I scored a piece of cardstock and then did a little ink blending.  I cut it down to 4x4.  I popped it up on a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" white card base...

Queen and Company

Last, I used the Heart Throb Kit to create this heart shaker box.  I love that stitched heart outline for die cut for the box!  Last, I added in the love die, also from the kit, to the top of the shaker box.  I added a coat of Nuvo clear glitter drops to the sentiment die for a little sparkle. 

That is it from me today.  Hope you have enjoyed my cards.  So glad you stopped in!

MFT Product Launch...

It's release day at MFT!  They have the cutest new set of stamps called Monster Sized and I had to create one last card using them.  

MFT Product Launch

To create this card, I did a little stenciling in the background with the new Full of Heart Stencil.  I used Picked Raspberry Oxide ink and blended it for a light background.  Next, I die cut a Rectangle Stitched STAX die to pop up the sentiment and main image.  I tucked a piece of pink ribbon under the panel after stamping the sentiment.  A fun foam panel gives it a little dimension.  Last, I stamped, die cut and colored that adorable little monster.  He is popped up on foam tape to stand off the card front.  

MFT Product Launch

That is it for me today!  Head on over and do some shopping at MFT.  Let me know what's on your wish list....or what already went in your cart.  Happy shopping!

I have one last card to share for the MFT January Release countdown.  All the new stamps, dies and paper you have seen this week will all be available Today, January 9th at 8pm CST.  I will be back at that time too with one more card to share!

Today's card was so fun to make! I used the new Stitched Heart Peek-a-boo die to create and Valentine Wishes stamp set this card.

MFT January 2018 Release

First, I cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used washi tape and attached the die to the cardstock and out 8 hearts out of the cardstock.  I lined the card base with the new Black and White Striped pattern paper and then popped up the heart die cut panel on foam tape.  

Next, I die cut 2 banners, one in vellum and one in Ripe Raspberry cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Valentine Wishes on the pink banner. I offset them on the card front and then added a little red heart for another pop of color.  

MFT January 2018 Release

Along with the kit, you can purchase different add-ons.  I have three projects to share with you today, using the add-ons for this month.

This first card uses the Window on Love Confetti Fancy die and the Happily Ever After stamp...

My Monthly Hero

I cut the Window on Love die out with a light gray cardstock.  Next, I used Copics to make a pink gradient on the center heart.  Last, I stamped and fussy cut the Happily Ever After banner and added it to the card front with foam tape.  Definitely an easy card to whip up with these adorable add-ons.

I have another clean and simple card.  This one uses an amazing die called Paper Layering Floral Heart and a sentiment from the set called Color Layering Rose....

My Monthly Hero

I folded a white card base and used the die cut right on the card front.  This die is so pretty!  It cuts out lots of little pieces that would be perfect for confetti, but it also cuts out little pieces that can be tipped up.  I wanted to keep this clean and simple, so I pulled out and dusted off my old Pebbles chalks and did a little light coloring on the butterflies, leaves and flowers.  I tipped them up so you can see through the die to the light green cardstock that I lined the inside of the card with.  Last, I used a sentiment from Color Layering Rose and tucked it up next to the die cut.

Last, I used this beautiful piece of paper that is new in the Hero Arts store (Ps 771 Lovely Layering paper) to lined a card base.  Next, I used a sentiment from the add-on stamp set called Love Bandit and heat embossed it on black cardstock.  I layered that on top of little white heart die cut and then finished off the card with some black pearls.  

My Monthly Hero

MFT January Countdown Day 3...

Welcome!  Today is day 3 of the MFT January countdown.  Have you been enjoying everything you've seen so far?  I love all the lovey valentines stuff coming our way!  Today I have another valentines card to share.  This one uses the new Marble Background stamp and the Die-namics Love You....

MFT January 2018 Release

To create this look, I inked up the marble with Grout Gray Premium Dye ink while the stamp was positioned in my Misti.  I used a blending tool and went over it in Gold Delicata ink to add a little shine.  It's hard to see in the photos but its a more gray background with hints of gold.  Next, I used MFT's Gold Sparkle cardstock and cut out the Love You dies.  I also cut out a layer of fun foam so the sentiment would be popped up from the card front.  Last, I added a little heart die for a little pop of red.

MFT January 2018 Release

This marble background is so fun and so easy to stamp.  All these new January products will be available on Tuesday, January 9th at 8pm CST.  Yay!

Thanks so much for stopping in today. Head on over to the MFT Blog to see all the details for this release.  Have a great day!

MFT January Countdown Day 4...

If you follow my blog, you know I love white space.  All the white space!  Today's card for the MFT Countdown has lots of it combined with a FUN new die set and stamp set.  For this card I am using the new set called From the Heart and the new die set called Hearts in a Row-Horizontal Die-namics.  

MFT January 2018 Release

I folded a card for a card base and then rounded the top 2 corners.  Next, I used some washi tape to hold down the heart die and then ran it through my die cut machine.  Next, I added in the black and white striped paper from the new Black and White Stripes paper pack.  Last, I used the banner dies from the die set and cut a piece of Ripe Raspberry.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set.  This stamp set is so much fun because it comes with lots of sentiments that go together with that adorable little heart stamp for the middle.  

MFT January 2018 Release

There are lots more stamp sets to see so go check out the MFT Blog for more sneak peeks.  Everything you see will be available on Tuesday, January 9th at 8pm CST.  I hope you'll come back tomorrow for another countdown day!  Have a great day!

MFT January Countdown Day 5...

It's Day 5 of the MFT January Release Countdown and I am here today with a CAS card using an adorable new set called Ewe and Me Forever.  

MFT January 2018 Release
I thought that this set would be so perfect for a quick and simple card.  I did a line of post it tape to mask off for some Copic Grass, added in a sentiment underneath and then popped up that adorable lamp up on foam tape.  

MFT January 2018 Release

These little guys are sooo easy to color with a little light gray outline and then a pop of color for the bow and done!  Quick and Simple!

The MFT Blog will have lots more to see on this first day.  Come back tomorrow for another day of sneak peeks.  Everything you see this week will be available on Tuesday, January 9th at 8pm CST.
