MFT Stamps July Release now available!



The wait is over! The MFT Stamps Release is live right now! Which means you can head to the MFT Stamps online store and purchase the stamps, dies, stencils, and more that we have been sharing for the last five days! I will wait patiently here while you shop. Or if you are still making up your mind, let me convince you of a few more items you might "need."

First up on my blog, Die-namics Chevron Fringe. EEEE and along with wild hand clapping! How fun is this die?!?! Not only did it make an amazing background on my card, layered down the front, but it has so many more possibilities! It would make a great fringe banner, unique flower centers and more!

I finished off my amazing background with another great new set of dies, Die-namics Happy Birthday. The clean, script font is the perfect size for cards and more. The set comes with two dies, as each word is separate! Its a must-have!

I used Die-namics Happy Birthday to create these adorable cupcake picks! One of the trend in wedding cakes right now is to have words, in a script font, placed on the top of the cake, instead of the traditional topper. I thought the idea would be perfect to execute with these dies and use them on birthday cupcakes!

I cut each of the words from Die-namics Happy Birthday three times. Once from Gold Sparkle card stock and twice from Tickled Pink card stock. I layered them together to add stiffness. Then I glued the two words together by overlapping the bottom of the letter "p" on happy to the top of the letter "h" in birthday. Once that dried, then I adhered the back of the letter "h" to a toothpick. This is SO cute! Its a fun idea that can take any cupcake from plain to pow! 

Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the information you will need about the upcoming release. That includes product images, product videos, links to the design team projects, and more! Plus, there always seems to be a chance to win!

thanks for stopping by!

floral happy birthday



Welcome to the MFT Stamps Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, and stencils that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, July 5 at 9 pm Central.

One more day until the fantastic new products from MFT Stamps will be available in the online stamps! Its been quite the birthday celebration and I have been honored to be a part of MFT Stamps' 10th anniversary!!

Today's card takes a feminine approach to birthday cards. Its been so crazy busy around here, I have not had the chance to ink up Flashy Florals and use the coordinating Die-namics Flashy Florals yet! Shocking and awful, I know! Previously released in a kit, these images are now available for purchase separately. These flowers are gorgeous. The layering abilities of the images will keep you happily stamping with a million color combinations! After stamping the images from Flashy Florals, with my go-to color scheme, I die cut them with Die-namics Flashy Florals.

I paired the flowers with Die-namics Happy Birthday To You. See, I cannot get enough of this amazing die! I love how it cuts out the letters. Very, very clever! And useful!!

dino happy birthday



Welcome to the MFT Stamps Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, and stencils that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, July 5 at 9 pm Central.

You're Rawr-some and the coordinating Die-namics You're Rawr-some are fun scene-building images that make some awfully cute masculine cards or boy birthday cards! Having a boy of my own, we are always in need of good boy stuff and these are perfect! But, with the adorable and punny sentiments in You're Rawr-some make great cards for anyone!

I stamped and then colored my dinosaur, palm tree, and grasses images from You're Rawr-some with color pencils. After the coloring was complete, then I die cut the images with Die-namics You're Rawr-some. Then I had fun layering them to create a scene around the next new product!

Before cutting my card base with Die-namics Happy Birthday To You, I stamped it with a new background image, Transparent Triangles Background. These open triangle images have a ton of possibilities, but when I saw the dinosaur images and then these, all I could think of was The Flintstones and knew that these images would pair together perfectly! :D

After cutting Die-namics Happy Birthday To You, I placed a panel of Blu Raspberry card stock behind the letters. I could have replaced all the centers of the letters, but chose not to as I love the look! Hang on because tomorrow, my love for Die-namics Happy Birthday To You will continue!
