My Favorite Things - Merry & Bright Card Kit Release!

 Hello everyone!



I'm going to make this short and sweet because as you read this, I'll be on the road headed south for the winter! So hopefully you'll understand that I'm not super verbose. Honestly, the amazingness of the Merry & Bright Card Kit speaks for itself! I had a blast creating with it, and I suspect you will, too!




I was so excited to work with the Christmas Lights Die-Namics to make this super fun project! I pulled out some colored vellum that I had in my stash, and I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below. The Merry & Bright Card Kit is available for purchase right this minute and can be found by clicking on the graphic below:

My Favorite Things - Merry & Bright Card Kit Preview Day 1!

 Hello everyone!



I'm going to make this short and sweet because as you read this, I'll be on the road headed south for the winter! So hopefully you'll understand that I'm not super verbose. Honestly, the amazingness of the Merry & Bright Card Kit speaks for itself! I had a blast creating with it, and I suspect you will, too!



I decided to make a holly wreath using the "Free with $60 Purchase" dies called Holly Berries Die-Namics! I also used the diagonal striped paper from the the Very Merry 6 x 6 Paper Pack. The sentiment is from the Merry & Bright Stamp Set. I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below (although the links to the kit won't be live until the release.) Here's a preview of the kit contents:

My Favorite Things - A Brand New Challenge: Outside the Box!

 Hello friends!



I'm so excited to be sharing a project that I've created for the brand spankin' new Outside the Box Challenge! This challenge has been added to the amazing family of MFT Challenges, and I can tell you it will be a fun one! This month the theme is "anything goes", but future Outside the Box Challenges will have a theme, so get ready for some fun inspiration for using the Outside the Box Die-Namics!



I wanted to use the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics to create a beautiful holiday scene inside my box. So, I die cut three of the four dies from the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics borders from Grout Gray card stock and layered them inside the box by adhering each piece to a shelf piece from the Outside the Box Die-Namics - that way, each piece had tabs to adhere to the inside of the box. I used the Starry Night - Horizontal Die-Namics to die cut the back layer piece from After Midnight card stock. I die cut the star from the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics from Silver Sparkle card stock. The sentiment is from the Snow Globe Sentiments Stamp Set, and I stamped it onto After Midnight card stock using embossing ink, heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, and die cut it using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-Namics. I inked up the English Brick Wall Stencil on the smaller box layer pieces using Grout Gray Dye Ink, and adhered them to the outside of the box. 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 fabulous creations that my fellow teammates have designed for your inspiration! And while you're there, why not link up a design of your own using the Outside the Box Die-Namics for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! It's a random draw, but you can't win if you don't play!


That'll do it for me today, my friends! I'll be back in a few days with more crafty stuff. Until then, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

My Favorite Things - September Release Day: MFT & Friends!

 Hello friends!



Today is the day that all of the fabulous products that we've been sharing with you all week are finally available for purchase! But before you fill your shopping cart, please stick around long enough to check out my project for today's post! I created a box card using the new Outside the Box Die-Namics! I also used the Outside the Box Snow Drifts Die-Namics, the Present Time Stamp Set and coordinating dies, as well as the City Block Background Stamp!





I filmed a video showing you how mind-blowingly easy and streamlined these types of cards are to make using the new Outside the Box Die-Namics! You can find it on the MFT YouTube Channel by clicking on the graphic below. I go into the step-by-step process of assembling one of these cards, and I show how the Outside the Box Snow Drifts and the Outside the Box Grass Die-Namics can be used (both are sold separately from the Outside the Box Die-Namics) as alternative shelves to create these amazing 3D scenes! They remind me so much of the dioramas that we used to make in elementary school - I had so much fun creating this project, and I can't wait to have a chance to make another one! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

My Favorite Things - September Release Countdown Day 3: More Sneak Peeks!

Hello everyone!



It's the third day of sneak peeks leading up to the September Release, and we have more fabulous products to share with you today! My project features the new Joyous Holidays Stamp Set and coordinating dies, the City Block Background Stamp, and the "Free with $60 Purchase" Stacked Merry Die-Namics!



Okay, how funny is that funky little Santa from the Joyous Holiday Stamp Set?! I stamped, colored and die cut him out using the coordinating Joyous Holiday Die-Namics. I die cut the Stacked Merry Die-Namics from green glitter card stock and used that as my Christmas tree - the perfect spot for Santa's star tree topper! I stamped the City Block Background Stamp onto a panel of Grout Gray Card Stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I die cut some snow banks using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-Namics and adhered the layers together with thin 3-D foam squares. I stamped the sentiment, from the  Snow Globe Sentiments, onto the bottom snow drift using embossing ink and heat embossed it with red embossing powder. I die cut the star from gold glitter card stock using a die from Tag Builder Blueprints 6, and adhered it to the Santa die cut. I've listed and linked all of the MFT products used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release.)

I paired the assembled cardinal die cut with the previously released Joyful Wreath Die-Namics, and cut an aperture from the image panel using the A2 Circle STAX Die-Namics. The sentiment is from the Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set using embossing ink and heat embossed with red embossing powder.
