the MFT Stamps March Release is 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."

Arrow Ends Background Builder is a crazy cool background stamp! A red rubber image, it covers your basic A2 card base vertically or horizontally, but this stamp goes even farther! It comes with a set of clear images that work with the main image! See those gold arrows? When the red rubber image is stamped, there are openings, blank spaces, left there intentionally. The clear images fit inside those blank spaces allowing you to create multi-color backgrounds! 

For my background, I heat embossed a piece of watercolor paper with the red rubber image. Then, using the clear images, I stamped again, but this time heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Such a cool effect! While I heat embossed, you could do this with different colors of ink. Oooh, you could stamp all the blank spaces at once with a MISTI! 

I created a watercolor wash by pushing my Tropical Teal ink pad onto my craft mat and adding water. Using a large paintbrush, I painted the background, creating an embossed resist. Once the first layer of color was dry, I added splats of more intense color by tapping on my paintbrush. Just looking at this background makes me want to try a thousand different ideas!

Die-namics Blueprints 27. How I love thee. You make my card making life simple and easy. And pretty too! I love the Blueprints dies. All the pieces and parts to create cards with your own design, or even mix them into any of your cards. But what about the easy part? Well, each of the different sets of Blueprints has an available FREE download containing 4 sketches. These sketches use the different dies in the sets. Easy peasy!

This quick thank you card is not lacking in sweetness! The scalloped and stitched large panel is a die that I will be using all the time. The inside panel holds my heart and sentiment perfectly too. Think of all the possibilities for those openings; all the patterned papers or stamped images that would make great backgrounds.

For this card, I used a sketch. This card came together as quickly as the thank you. The new Off The Grid Paper Pack was cut with the large scalloped panel to start things off.

The inside stitched panel was cut from Kraft card stock. Each opening was filled with cactus from the Sweet Succulents set. Love how they fit so well!

This banner is in the set, the perfect placement for the sentiment!

Quick, pretty, and heart felt cards. Perfect!

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!

Super cards! The embossed gold looks fantastic on the first and I love the simplicity of your heart/thank you card. Your cactus card is fabulous too - and my favourite of those you are showcasing. Now I have the opposite of buyer's remorse (waiter's regret?) for NOT getting Blueprints 27. I wanted it all, but had to make choices. Perhaps next time!!
