MFT March Release – You Left a Paw Print

I have one last preview to share before MFT‘s March New Product Launch tonight at 10 p.m. EST.  Today I’ve used Pet Accents Die-namics (♥), Inside & Outside Stitched Rounded Square STAX and a sentiment from I Knead You.

You-Left-a-Paw-Print-500

I sprayed Steel Shimmer Mix-Ables onto the black strip before adhering.  I LOVE the shimmer on black card stock.  So difficult to capture on camera, but believe me, it is soooo shimmery and pretty. Beside the paw, I adhered a tiny Swarovski crystal.

You-Left-a-Paw-Print-CU

I performed a bit of stamp surgery on the sentiment so that I could easily place half on the front and half inside.

MFT Ingenious Inking Challenge

Hi everyone! Today the MFT design team begins a new monthly challenge – Ingenious Inking. This month we are showing how our line of MIX-ables can be used to alter our Premium Dye Inks, Pigment Inks and Hybrid Inks to create new looks and applications. “MIX-ables make it easy to add sparkle, shine, and glitz to projects – subtle or bold –it truly is a bit of crafting magic.”

On my first card, I used Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables over a sponged Herringbone Bricks stenciled background.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-500Using a blending tool, I applied Lemon Drop, Razzleberry and Pink Lemonade dye inks to a Sweet Tooth card base. I spritzed on Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables and allowed to dry.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-CU

The first line of the sentiment, from Watt’s Up?, was stamped in Black Licorice dye ink then clear embossed.  SHINE was die-cut from Black Licorice card stock using Bright Lights Alphabet.

Inside, I used a leftover strip of the sponged/spritzed background and stamped a sentiment from Watt’s Up?.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-In

Next, I sponged In the Buff, Coral Crush, Persimmon and Cherry Crisp dye inks onto Sweet Tooth card stock, then heavily sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-500Peaceful Wildflowers and a sentiment from Cheerful Blessings were both stamped in black and clear embossed.

I love the bit of sparkle and shine the Sheer Shimmer leaves behind.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-CU

Inside, I stamped a couple flowers using Persimmon dye ink and stamped a sentiment from Words of Inspiration.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-In

My first card uses Words of Gratitude.

Michele Boyer/My Favorite ThingsI used a few ink refills (Pink Lemonade, Ripe Raspberry, Lemon Chiffon and Sour Apple) to watercolor the background, added my sentiment cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, then white embossed “for you” (from Thankful Thoughts, the companion stamp set to Words of Gratitude).  The heart was cut using Heart STAX.
