MFT Birthday Project...


Good morning!  It's Birthday Project day over at MFT.  Here is our challenge for the October Project....

While our birthday collection boasts a virtually endless array of festive imagery, challenging ourselves to think outside the box by using only sentiments in our design is sure to inspire creative, eye-catching looks. Grab your favorite birthday sentiment stamps and dies, text-based backgrounds, and alphabets and craft a birthday card that wows without using any images.

I found the perfect sentiment for the occasion!  This die is Sip Sip Hooray!

MFT

I grabbed Blueprint 28 because of that amazing gift card flap.  I die cut the Sip Sip Hooray from the flap and then attached an ink blended, ombre panel behind it.  

MFT

This card was super easy to make and I just love the gift card holder.

MFT

I added a little message in the back of the opening to say happy birthday!

MFT

Stop by the MFT Blog to see more Birthday Project inspiration.  Thanks so much for coming by today!

 I have 2 products to share with you today.  A stamp set called You Shine and a die that I absolutely LOVE called Merry Frame Die-namics....

MFT Vault

This card was super simple to create.  I colored up the adorable gal and her strand of lights with some Copics.  I die cut the image with the coordinating die and then die cut another piece of fun foam so she has some dimension.  I did the same with the Merry Frame, adding them both to a white card base. 

MFT Vault

Altenew October 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to the October Altenew Release Hop.  Today you are going to see lots of new stamps, dies and stencils along the way.  Scroll down to see my projects, the details on the prizes from Altenew and a full list of stops on the hop!

Altenew

This first card uses the set called Dot Botanicals.  This one became a fast favorite because of how easy it is to create quick and simple cards.  I simply stamped the leaf silhouette on pink card stock and then stamped the dotted image in a darker pink.

Altenew

I filled the front to create a full background of Dot Botanicals and then splattered some white paint on the front.  Last, I added in a gold cardstock hello to finish off the card. 

Altenew

Delicate Tiles is the name of this next stamp set....

Altenew

You know how Altenew gives you color combinations on the stamp packaging?  Well I saw this combo when I first pulled out the stamp set and I just had to use it.  I love the mix of blues and yellows.

Altenew

First, I used the Classic Stripe stencil to create a yellow striped background.  I stamped each tile and cut them out with the Halftone Square Dies.  I popped each of the 6 tiles up on foam tape and then added the card panel to the white card base.  To finish off the card, I stamped the Just Because along the side in Sapphire Blue to coordinate with the card front.

Altenew

Spellbinders

First, I masked off a circle and did a little ink blending around the circle.  I foiled the plates with the foil included in the kit.  It is a really pretty Copper color with amazing shine.  

Spellbinders

To finish off the card, I added the pumpkins to the masked off area on the card front with some foam adhesive for a little dimension.

MFT and Friends....


It's release day at MFT!  Time to shop for some amazing new products.  Head on over to the MFT Shop to check out the entire release.

I have one last card to share with you today using the new Joyful Wreath Die...

MFT October Release

To create this card, I scored randomly over a white card base.  I do love that subtle detail. Next, I die cut 2 wreaths out of different greens and then layered them on the card front.

MFT October Release

I die cut the Joy out of red cardstock and then the berries out of red and Burgundy card stock.  I layered them around the wreath and then added glossy accents to each.  

MFT October Release

I sprinkled a little bit of glitter around so it would stick in the glossy accents.


MFT October Release

Can't wait to hear what is in your cart today.  Any release favorites?  Thanks for coming by today.  Happy shopping!
