MFT & Friends | January Product Launch

Hi and Happy New Year ! I wish everyone all the best for 2021!

It’s already time for the My Favorite Things January product launch! All new products are available right now at the MFT store and the MFT design team, as well as special guests, are sharing projects created with the new stuff. You will find a lot of inspiration!

 

Here is my card featuring the newest Friendly Unicorns stamp set:

 



Most of the supplies I used for the project are linked at the bottom of this post. I went for a clean and simple card. First, I did a white top-folded card base. Next, I cut the Heart Rays Die-namics and only used the negative space as a stencil (my first idea was to use the die cuts but with inspiration, you never know where it takes you lol).  MFT also has a new Heart Extraordinaire stencil in this January release. If you want to stencil a heart, go for this one (I added the item to the link list at the bottom of the post)! So, I sponged the self-made stencil with Distress inks to create this beautiful rainbow heart. I colored and cut the unicorns and adhered them to the heart with foam pads for more dimension. The sentiment is from the Friendly Unicorns set too. The tiny heart is from the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with:

  


 

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. For this card, I sent for a one-layer graphic card. I used the Basic Shapes – Circles stencil to ink blend the circles with Distress inks. Then sentiment is from the I Miss Your Hugs stamp set.  I added 5 enamel dots to finish off my card.

Winter Cards

Hi everyone! Today, I want to share two winter cards with you. Here is what I came up with:







 

For this card, I was inspired by a card (made by Design Team Member Emma Goddard) I’ve seen on the Stampin’Up! Instagram feed two months ago. The trees are dies from Stampin’Up! The set is called In the Pines Bundle. The French sentiments are from the Douceur Hivernale stamp set (winter sentiments) from le Comptoir du Scrap. For the rainbow trees card, I went for a stenciled background using texture paste. For the blue and green trees card, I stamped some splatters to the background.

 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! I already wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Weihnachstpost

Hi everyone! Today, I’m back with a Christmas card using the fantastic Merry Christmas Reindeer stencil from Hero Arts.

  


 

I created a top-folded card base from white cardstock. I stenciled the deer to the card front using Distress inks. The German Weihnachstpost sentiment (Christmas mail) is from Stampin’Up! and was heat embossed with golden embossing powder. It’s a clean and simple, one-layer card but very eye-catching.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #519

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with:

  


 

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. For this card, I used the Blastoff Buddies stamp set (rocket and sentiment). I first did a top-folded card base with white cardstock. Next, I masked the edges of the card front to create a universe background using Distress inks. I splattered white ink over the ink blended surface and removed the masking tape. I adhered the space rocket with the sweet bunny, colored in grey shades, on top of the universe triangle. I stamped, cut and fixed the sentiment as shown on the photo. To finish off my card, I added 3 glittery enamel dots.

 

Here is the sketch #519 for this week’s challenge:
