My Favorite Things - October Birthday Project Challenge!


Hello everyone!

I'm back again today to share my design for this month's Birthday Project Challenge!  The challenge this month is to create a birthday card using only sentiments and/or word dies - NO IMAGES ALLOWED!  Here's what I came up with!


So, I love, love, love the Bold Beautiful Die-Namics and I knew it would be a perfect focal point without breaking the rules.  I die cut it once out of Black Licorice Card Stock and once out of the striped pattern from the Party Patterns 6 x 6 Paper Pack.  I layered them on top of a piece of vellum and trimmed around the outside border with my detail scissors.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Bitty Birthday Wishes Stamp Set onto a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and die cut it using the Skinny Strips Die-Namics.  I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other super fun projects that my teammates have created for you.  And while you're there, why not link up a design of your own that follows this month's Birthday Project Challenge rules!  If you do, you'll be eligible to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique!

That's it for me today, my friends! I'll be back again soon with another crafty project.  Until then, I hope you have an awesome day!

My Favorite Things - October Vault Release Day ! NEW PRODUCTS AVAILABLE NOW!


Hello friends!


I'm popping in today to share a project that I created using the Comfy Sweater Die-Namics from the October Vault Release!  This sweater die set was one of my faves back in the day when it was first released, so I'm thrilled to little bits to see it come back to the MFT fold!  I paired it today with the Friendly Fox Die-Namics and the Sweater Weather In the Woods Stamp Set!


So there's lots of die cutting going on here in this card!  But to be honest - that just makes me happy!  I used the Fishtail Flag Trio Die-Namics to die cut the sentiment from the Sweater Weather In the Woods Stamp Set, and used the A2 Rectangle Frame Die-Namics to ground the focal image a bit.  I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below.  And ALL of the October Vault Release Products can be purchased today by clicking on the graphic below!


Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other superb projects that my brilliant teammates have created for you!  And while you're there, be sure and leave some love along the way for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique!  You can't win if you don't comment!

But before you go shopping, I have one more project to share with you featuring some of the new products!  My card for today features the new Christmas Crew - Santa Die-Namics and the Bitty Holiday Greetings Stamp Set.


I assembled this darling little Christmas Crew Santa onto the domed fishtail flag from the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 - it fit perfectly, so I'm assuming that the other Christmas Crew Die-Namics sets will fit perfectly, as well!  I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below.

My Favorite Things - Half Way to the Big Day - 3 Days Until the October Release!!


Hello again!


I'm back again today with another October Release Countdown project!  Today's project features the new Sun-Lovin' Santa Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  It also features the new Snowy Scene Builder Die-Namics and the Snowfall-Vertical Stencil (which will be featured later on this week!).



Okay, I'm so excited to share this project with you!  I love a lighted card!  But I hate all of the work involved in lighting a card!  But some very smart people have created a mechanism that make lighting cards a piece of cake - and that's truly an understatement compared to how tedious it used to be!  If you'd like to know more about how I lit this card up, please leave me a comment below and I'll be happy to share that information!  Anywho, here's what the card looks like when you press on that little bundle of packages in the snow!



It's definitely more subtle in a photograph, but in real life - OH EM GEE!!  The Volkswagen van, bundles of gifts, and the sentiment are all from the Sun-Lovin' Santa Stamp Set, and the scene was created using the Snowy Scene Builder Die-Namics (I just trimmed the sides of the snow banks to fit a vertical oriented card).  The snow was added to the sky by using the Snowfall-Vertical Stencil and some texture paste.  I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release!)

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other outstanding projects that my teammates have created for you!  And while you're there, be sure and leave some love along the way for your chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! All of the October Release products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 10:00 AM at EDT!

That's it for me today, friends!  I'll be back again tomorrow with another countdown project for you, so I sure hope you'll come back to check it out! Have a great day!
