At The Movies!

MFT AtTheMovies wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 4 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 3rd January.

Today the Design Team are featuring the two sets that will be released, these are “At The Movies Die-namic & Stamp set” and “Monogram Alphabet Stamp set”.

For my project today I decided to use the At the Movies Die-namic & Stamp set.

MFT-AtTheMovies2 wm

A friend of mine gave me a DVD gift box for a Christmas Swap that we did this year, and I thought it was a brilliant idea to use to give a DVD and a popcorn treat to someone so I decided I would use that idea as inspiration for my project today.

The belly band helps keep the DVD gift box closed, as you can see I have decorated the belly band using the reel of film and the popcorn stamps/dies from the sets.

MFT AtTheMovies3 wm

Here is my DVD gift box with the belly band removed.

This Die-namic and Stamp set is so much fun, and has sentiments to suit so many occasions. I decided to use the birthday sentiment included in the set and make my DVD gift box as an aged birthday gift .. so I also added the “40” to the top part of the film strip.

Another photo with the belly band removed this time with the belly band beside the DVD Gift box.

And one last photo of my DVD Gift Box, this time opened … you can see how this gift box has two pockets one to hold a DVD and the other for some popcorn to eat while watching the movie Smile

From The Heart!

MFT FlopseyHeartsTreatBox wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 2 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 3rd January.

Today the Design Team are featuring one of the new stamp sets that will be released, which is Bunch of Hearts Flopsey. I just adore Flopsey!

MFT FlopseyHeartsTreatBox4 wm

When I think of Valentines Day, I think of Hearts and chocolates so I decided to combine the two to create my project today which is a Treat Box card. You can find a tutorial on how to create one of these over in the resource section of Splitcoast Stampers.

I altered the template a little so that I could make the card section slightly wider as I needed it for my image. Inside the treat section I have place 4 heart chocolates.

Flopsey is layered onto one of MFT Stamps newest Die-namics die which is also being released next Tuesday which is the Die-namics Layered Hearts. I love the holes around the edge of the top heart as it gives you so many options. You can leave it plain like I have on this card or you can add stitching,rhinestones etc.

MFT FlopseyHeartsTreatBox3 wm

Here is one more photo of the front of my card, this time with the box open. This is another modification I made to the template adding a tab so I could open and close the treat box section easily.

MFT FlopseyHeartsTreatBox2 wm

Here is the inside of my card. I used the Die-namics Layered Hearts die again and on top of that I used the Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels for my sentiment. The Sentiment is from the Bunch of Hearts Flopsey stamp set.

MFTeaser - WTG

MFT WTGParisian wm

Hi everyone,

It’s that time again when the MFT Stamps designs team begins showing our MFTeasers in preparation of the new stamps which will be released by MFT Stamps after the release party this coming Tuesday 3rd January.

Today the Design Team are featuring the Who’s That Parisian Girl stamp set which is being released.

MFT WTGParisian2 wm

As you can see I have created another Centre Step card which I always have fun creating and this one was no exception. I took my inspiration for the colors in the French flag which is blue, white and red.

MFT Stamps are also releasing some awesome new Die-namic dies on Tuesday, three of which I have used on the front of the card. First up we have the Die-namics  Eiffel Tower, perfect to use with the WTG stamp set this month, what a fun die! Along the bottom of my card I have used the Die-namics Jumbo Monarch Border. The sentiments along the bottom are stamped onto one of the pennants from the new Die-namics Mini Wavy Pennants die. This set co-ordinates with the Die-namics Mini Pennant die using the pole from this set.

On the centre panel on this card I attached brads along each side and then used Denim Twine to criss cross behind the WTG image.

MFT Stamps Creative Chat

Print

Hi everyone,

It’s time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You’ll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions and share your own ideas in the  MFT forum. This month, we were asked the following questions:

Show us how you store your embellishments.

What are your absolute favorite embellishments?

Any tips or tricks on how to use embellishments on stamped creations?

I love embellishments and over the years I have collected quiet a few … my favorites would be brads, flowers, buttons, rhinestones and those flourishy embellishments which have become popular recently.

This month I have again created a video so you can tour my embellishments with me … I hope you enjoy! I forgot to include all my prima flowers in my video, but you will see all my other flowers.

Come on a tour of my embellishments with me.

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team.

Ice Fishing Riley and Percy!

Riley2611 FishingPals wm

Hi everyone!

It’s challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. Cindy Haffner is the hostess for our final challenge for 2011 (yes we will be back with more challenges in 2012 Winking smile).

Cindy has challenged us to decorate our envelopes to match our cards this week. What a fun challenge!

Riley2611 FishingPals2 wm

Christmas may be over, but it is still winter up in the northern hemisphere so I decided to play with Ice Fishing Riley and Percy … I just love these images Smile.

Riley2611 FishingPals3 wm

Here is a close up of my envelope … I stamped Percy Snow Angel onto the lower right hand corner of my envelope and also added some die cut snowflakes. The designer paper at the top of the envelope continues from the flap at the back.

Riley2611 FishingPals4 wm

And one last photo to share with you, this time so you can see the back of my envelope. I thought it was boring just taking the envelope on it’s own so I put it with the card again.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams blogs today so see what they created for this challenge.
