MFT's August Teasers Day 2 - Time to be Creative

Thanks for stopping by for Day 2 of MFT's August Teasers! I have a small, altered shadow box  to share today using the new Mona Pendleton's new stamp set, Timeless and the coordinating Die-namics, Time Pieces

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects. 


I've had this small shadow box in my stash for ages. When I saw the sentiment "Time to be Creative, I knew I wanted to make something for my studio. I love how it came out and can't wait to hang it up!


I just love the clocks in the stamp set. I cut the face of the clock and the the gears with dies in the Time Pieces Die-namics from a light weight chipboard. The face of the clock is heat embossed with embossing enamel. I cut the gears from card stock, adhered them to the chipboard, and then added a layer of MFT Glitter Glaze.

The roses are cut with the Royal Rose and Mini Royal Roses Die-namics. The leaves are cut with the Royal Leaves Die-namics from MFT Felt in Sour Apple.

The I added some other embellishments from my stash.


Here is a closer look at the smaller inserts. The small doily is cut with a doily in the Mini Doily Circles. The word "HAPPY" is from the Document It - Off the Chart Stamp Set. And the black spool and scissors are cut with dies in the Sew Nifty Die-namics.


The dress form is also created with a die from the Sew Nifty Die-namics, cut from light weight chipboard, and embossed with embossing enamel.

  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 9th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum.

Here is my take on the sketch using the Pretty Poppies Stamp set. The poppy is stamped in Electric Red Ink and cut out with the Poppies and Leaves Die-namics. The frame is created with the Chalkboard Frame Builder Dienamics and cut from corrugated paper.


The background script is created with another stamp from the Pretty Poppies Stamp set, and stamped with Kraft Ink. I also added an MFT Button in Electric Red tied with Hemp Cord.


On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Pretty Poppies Stamp set and another Pretty Poppy.

MFT's August Teasers Day 1!

Hi and welcome to Day 1 of MFT's August Teasers! The August Release kicks off my favorite time of year to create, the Holidays! This month we will start with some fun, and spooky new products! 

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects. 


First up is a card I created with the new Lisa Johnson Stamp Set, Splendid Sunflowers and the coordinating Splendid Sunflowers Die-namics.

The layout of the card is based on one of the sketches included with the new Blueprints 6 Die-namics. And the background pattern is cut with the new Triangle Screen Die-namics.


The flower is created in three steps. First I stamped the sunflower in Lemon Drop Ink, then the center in Kraft  Ink, and finally the outer ring in Hot Fudge Ink. Then I add the Stickles to the ring. The leaves are stamped in Gumdrop Green  Ink


On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Finishing Flourishes


My second project is a sweet, little Halloween Treat Bag. How cute is this little bag, cut with the new Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics. I cut the bag from Black Licorice Card Stock and used the polka dot stamp from the Distressed Background Blocks Stamp Set with embossing ink and white embossing powder. I added a ribbon handle. 

The sweet image and the sentiment is from the new Pretty Pumpkin Stamp Set. She is colored with Copics and her skirt is paper pieced. 

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 9th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum.
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on August 6th at 10 PM EST.  You'll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
