MFT Release Time - New Product Tour

You've been waiting so patiently (or maybe not) all week and the time is finally here for you to go shopping in the MFT Boutique for all the new goodies the design team has been showcasing for the past week.

We have just a little more inspiration for you though, more samples with each of the new stamp sets and die-namics. When you're ready to shop, you'll find all the new products in the Brand Spankin' New section.

I worked with Fred Bear Catches Some Zzz's. I love love LOVE Fred Bear! This set is no exception. I made a fun little paper lantern using the new Loopy Bloom die-namic and created a short video to show you how, so be sure to scroll down and have a peek at my video.

Fred is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I paper pieced the pillow using one of the patterns from the Authentique Comfort & Familiar 6x6 pad. I used the just the ticket die-namic to cut out the sentiment tab and added three brown brads to balance the card.

Here's the detail and dimension of the lantern I created using the Loopy Bloom die-namic. I added some yellow under the lantern to imitate the light but it was difficult to get a good shot of it.

On the inside I stamped Fred again with Memento Rich Cocoa and added a patterned strip that I cut with the fun Wonky Scallop Border die-namic.

Do you want to watch my short video on how to create the paper lantern from the Loopy Bloom die-namic? Watch it on You Tube HERE


There's blog candy hidden on one of the designer's posts so be sure to leave some love as you hop around. You'll find a complete list of all the designers participating over on Kim's blog.

Here are the die-namics I use:

Thanks for stopping by!
