CCwithBP_2017oct19


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this month’s Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this month’s challenge. All of the details about the challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

Here’s this month’s challenge: Directional elements range from obvious arrows to simple tags and banners that include a pointed end. They’re a fantastic way to lead your recipient right to the sweet spot of your look. This month, we’ve challenges our designers to come up with inventive ways of integrating Blueprints directional elements into their designs.

This card was super fun to make!! I was racking my brain for an idea and suddenly I thought: “Witch Way Is the Candy?”!!!! Perfect! I sponged the sky using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and used Spring Scene Builder Die-namics for most of the scene.

CCwithBP_2017oct19b

I stamped the sentiment on arrows cut from two different Blueprints Die-namics, attached them to a “post” and stuck it in the “ground” next to the dirt road. My adorable witch was colored with Copic markers, also used on the trees. Foam tape provides dimension.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Merry Kiss-Mas–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #355

MFTWSC355_2017oct18

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

MFT_WSC_355

Well, this one was definitely a challenge, LOL!! I started by creating my background to cover the entire card front using Drifts & Hills Stencil and Mini Cloud Edges Stencil. I cut the square out with Square Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics, stamped the sentiment from Sending Smooches Stamp Set, popped the main part up on foam tape, and replaced the cutout, adhering it directly to the card base. Then I added strips of Silver Sparkle card stock and Dots & Stripes Neutrals patterned paper for the bottom element.

MFTWSC355_2017oct18b

I stamped the two little birdies from Dashing Deer with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored with Copics, and popped them up in the window with foam tape. For the star element, I used some creative license and tied a piece of mistletoe from Dashing Deer to a limb created by cutting a trunk from Tree-mendous Die-namics from Cherry Wood Adhesive Backed sheet and adding snow with glue and White Diamond Microfine Glitter. I “tied” it on with a little bow from Blueprints 26. IRL you can see the mistletoe berries are Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the

Hello, Bootiful–CTD #465

CTD465_2017oct18

Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Jodi has given us another Halloween color combo based on her awesome inspiration piece.


swatch465


I decided to let the inspiration piece be my guide so first of all I sponged a spooky sky with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Grape Jelly dye ink. I added a moon cut from Sweet Tooth card stock with Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, added Birch Trees/Solid Birch Trees Die-namics, and Black Licorice card stock cut with Grassy Fields Die-namics.

CTD465_2017oct18b

The sentiment, from BB Fab-BOO-lous Friends was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Foam tape was used for dimension.To finish off, I added some bats, also from BB Fab-BOO-lous Friends and it was done.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the
Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD465 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd465 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!

For this card I made an ornament that can be removed and hung on a tree :) I adhered the hanging cord between the layers with gold washi tape so it’s easily removed. To begin, I trimmed some Sweet Tooth card stock with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 and cut the center circle with Circle STAX Set 1 as well as a circle into the front of the card base. Then I dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil and set it aside. Next I stamped five layers of Snowflake Splendor stamp set on Sweet Tooth card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder and silver detail embossing powder, alternating colors.

Then I adhered my layers, alternating metal colors, with foam mounting tape, sandwiching the hanging cord between the bottom and next layers. I adhered the cord to the card base, then popped the front up on it with foam mounting tape. I added a drop of Nuvo Crystal Drops – Metallic Silver Lining and Nuvo Crystal Drops – Metallic Bright Gold to each snowflake (see? I’m addicted!). The sentiment is a partial one from Snowfall of Blessings, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder. I popped it up on foam mounting tape and was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Snow Globe Card Kit. See you soon!

MFT October Card Kit–Snowflake Splendor, Countdown Day Two

cardkitday2_2017oct17

Hi, all! So, what do you think of this month’s kit? Amazing, right? The Design Team had some samples for you yesterday and there’s more to come today so be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. Release is tonight at 9pm Eastern, so make a note!


SensationalStitchedFlowers_KitPeek


I decided to get out my Flop Card – Circle Die-namics for this card—Layered Snowflakes Die-namics fit perfectly in the circle and the flop card design lends itself to lots of other design possibilities. I started by stamping some images from Snowflake Splendor on a Kraft card stock base with Versamark then cut/scored with Flop Card – Circle Die-namics and added some Kraft Collection – Solid Stripes patterned paper to the inside.

cardkitday2_2017oct17b

I created my snowflake using Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and, bottom to top, Primitive White card stock, Tropical Teal card stock, some corrugated paper (remember that?), Sno Cone card stock, and more Primitive White. I sponged the edges of all with Kraft dye ink and adhered them with hot glue to add some dimension. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and heat embossed with off white embossing powder. I popped it up on foam mounting tape and added a circle of Primitive White on the inside for signing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tonight for Release!
