Introducing MFT Die-namics!

MFT-Dienamic-Tree-wm Hi everyone,

The MFTeasers are starting a day early this month as we have something very exciting to introduce to you that MFT Stamps will be releasing this coming Wednesday 5th May.

So what is it you ask???


MFT Stamps is PROUD to introduce Die-namics, it’s own EXCLUSIVE, American made line of steel dies! This month there will be 3 dies that will be releases.

For my card I used the jumbo scallops die to cut thin cork to create the ground underneath my tree. The tree with the owl is the new “Sheltering Tree” stamp set that was released a couple of weeks ago. The cloud designer paper used on the background of my card is a digital paper also available from MFT Stamps, you can find it here.


Here is a close up of the of my cork jumbo scallops. Cork (set of 6, 6 X 6 sheets of 1/16” thick cork) will be available from MFT Stamps on release day for $2.95.

Here is what I used to cut it:

Machine: Big Shot
Material: Thin Cork
Stack (from top to bottom)
cutting plate
card stock
cutting plate
platform (completely closed)


I also have a tip to share with you all about this die … don’t just use the scallop portion of the die … look what you can do with the inverted part you normally might throw away … doesn’t it look a little like waves! I haven’t done anything with this yet because I only got my dies a day ago, but expect to see a card with it on my blog in the near future.

As I said earlier there are three dies which are being released on Wednesday 5th May, which include:


MFT Die-namics Clouds (element die) (one die, with three different sized clouds on it)
Small – 1.25” wide and .70” tall
Medium – 1.89” wide and 1.06” tall
Large – 2.51” wide and 1.41” tall


MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallops (Edge die)
6” long, with each scallop measuring 1.5”


MFT Die-namics Scalloped Scallops (Edge die)
6” long, with each scallop measuring 1.5”
