MFT July Card Kit Release!

Hello and welcome to the release party for the My Favorite Things July card kit - Twice the Wishes! This fun new birthday themed kit is now available for purchase in the MFT online store here.

For my card tonight I decided to create a two layer cake that wasn't interactive but had a cute little bear image on top from the Beary Special Birthday stamp set. I thought the image and the sentiment went perfectly with the cake in the kit. ;)
I used the patterned papers from the kit to create the cake layers and added aqua and pink scallops to the top, bottom and middle. I then adhered the cake to the light pink chevron paper that I had diecut with a stitched rectangle die.

I love the adorable bear image sitting up on top of the cake with the fun sentiment! ;)

MFT July Card Kit Countdown | Day 1

Hello! Today I have a card to share that I created with the new My Favourite Things Twice the Wishes card kit! This bright and colourful birthday themed kit includes everything you need to make a ton of cards including a 4x6 sentiment stamp set, an interactive birthday cake die, a 6x6 patterned paper pad, new slider discs, and 19 sheets of cardstock.

And the best part... everything is perfectly coordinated together so all you have to do is create! The kit officially releases tomorrow night at 10pm and you can find all the details about the kit and how it works on the MFT blog.

Today we're sharing 'out of the box' ideas for using the kit ad I went waayy out of the box. All the way to my Christmas box lol! I thought it would be fun to use the slider element in the kit to create a cute fireplace scene with Santa coming down the chimney. ;)

I used a Santa image from the Jingle all the Way stamp set (when he's upside down in the fireplace, it looks like he's touching the fire to see if its hot lol!) and I used the slider element from the kit to move him up and down the chimney.

I decorated the fireplace with lot's of holiday presents stamped from the Jingle all the Way stamp set and the Beary Special Birthday stamp set and I added bricks with the English Brick Wall stencil and Grout Gray dye ink.

Once I had all of the elements on my white cardstock panel, I stamped my sentiment and then I adhered the entire thing to a Grout Gray top-folding card base to complete the card.

The kit will officially be available for purchase tonight at 10pm EST in the MFT online store. Make sure to check out the MFT blog today for more 'out of the box' ideas from the creative team!

MFT July Card Kit Countdown | Day 2

Hello! Today I have a card to share that I created with the new My Favourite Things Twice the Wishes card kit! This bright and colourful birthday themed kit includes everything you need to make a ton of cards including a 4x6 sentiment stamp set, an interactive birthday cake die, a 6x6 patterned paper pad, new slider discs, and 19 sheets of cardstock.

And the best part... everything is perfectly coordinated together so all you have to do is create! The kit officially releases tomorrow night at 10pm and you can find all the details about the kit and how it works on the MFT blog.

For my card today I used the kit products to create an interactive three-layer birthday cake with a bit of sparkle and shine hidden inside. ;)

I created the bottom layers of the cake with the patterned paper from the kit... the patterns and colours go together awesome! And then for a fun surprise when the top layer comes out of the cake, I created that one with silver glitter cardstock and embossed a sentiment on it with silver embossing powder.

I love the interactive element of this cake. So original and such a fun surprise for the recipient of the card. I added some clear sequins to the card for some added sparkle and dimension and adhered the whole cake panel onto a pink top-folding card base.

You can see how I created this card from start to finish in this week's MFTv video and see more information and inspiration for this months kit on the MFT blog here.

MFT Camp Create 2 | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of MFT Camp Create 2! Every day this week we're going back to summer camp to hang out, be inspired and win prizes!! I am so excited to be a part of such a fun event and can't wait to share this week's projects with you! I hope you'll take part and share your creations on the MFT blog.
For today's activity, we're getting out our pencil crayons and colouring on kraft paper. Colouring on kraft is so different from regular white cardstock. It settles into the paper better and the colours are vibrant and pigmented.

For my card I stamped a design onto to a piece of Brown Paper Bag card stock using the Funky Flowers stamp set and Black Licorice Dye ink. I kept the stamping on the lower right corner of the panel and then I stamped my sentiment from the Spring Wreath stamp set in with the flowers and leaves.

Once all of the images were stamped, I coloured them all in with Spectrum Noir pencil crayons and added some white dot detail with a white Prismacolor pencil. I finished the card by adding some clear sequins and adhering the finished panel to a white top-folding card base.

Make sure to head over to the MFT Stamps blog to participate in today's challenge and comment for a chance to win prizes all week of camp! ;)

MFT Release Replay | July 2016

Hello and welcome to a fun MFT feature, where the creative team re-visits the monthly release and creates a card or project with the new products. I love the July release and couldn't wait to use the new products to make another card. ;)

For my card I used the new Big Birthday Balloons die-namics to create a balloon filled card front! ;) I love the sizes and shapes of the balloons in this set and know I will get a lot of use out of them.
I diecut all of the balloons from white cardstock and used distress ink and an ink blending tool to add colour to each of the balloons. Once I had all of the colour on, I spritzed water onto all of the balloons and dabbed it off with a paper towel to give them a splotchy distressed look.

I adhered them all flat onto the cardstock panel except for the pink balloon in the front that was adhered with foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then used a pen and ruler to draw on all of the balloon strings.

I adhered the finished panel to a pink top-folding card base and scattered some clear sequins onto the card front. I also added some clear glitter pen to all of the balloons to make them sparkle. ;)

Thanks for stopping by for the July Release Replay. Make sure to check out the MFT blog for more cards created by the awesomely talented MFT creative team. ;)

MFT Camp Create 2 | Day 1

Hello and welcome back to MFT Camp Create! Every day this week we're going back to summer camp to hang out, be inspired and win prizes!! I am so excited to be a part of such a fun event and can't wait to share this week's projects with you! I hope you'll take part and share your creations on the MFT blog.
Today at camp we're playing with foil. I love the unexpected look a bit of foil adds to a card, and it's so easy to do! For my card today I used a Minc Mini to do my foiling, but you can use a laminator, foil glue, etc... to achieve similar looks.

I diecut the New York Skyline die (there is also a Paris and London skyline) from Deco Foil toner paper and then I ran it through my Minc mini with teal foil. It's so hard to capture foil in a photo but you can see the shine of the teal foil in the photo above.

I also diecut a heart from the same toner paper and ran that through my Minc with red foil. Once I was done all the foiling, I diecut the rest of my card stock pieces and then I assembled the scene on my card.

You can see a video showing how I created the card on the MFT blog. And you can also participate in camp all week long for a chance to win some great prizes!! ;)
