MFT Teasers - Blueprints 2!


Welcome! Today is very exciting - it's the start of My Favorite Things teaser time!!

Today I'm going to be sharing FOUR projects using the amazing new Blueprints 2 Die-namics. I'm going to share lots of inspiration for this new product and there is a HUGE prize today!


Please visit the MFT blog for ALL the information you need about this release, and the fantastic prize someone very lucky will win! You'll also find some amazing inspiration from the wonderful designers showcasing new products today.


I have lots of photos for you, so let's get started! I'll be adding links for each project as we go - the new release products will be available in the MFT Boutique on April 9th at 10pm!

Blueprints 2 features some really fun shapes and layering pieces. Here I've used it with the new Pure Innocence - Serenity and a couple of older Die-namics. I've cut the oval frame then glittered it to add some shimmer to my card. The stiched sentiment flag comes in two shapes with this set - I've cut it twice to create a border. The oval behind my sentiment is from the inside of the frame.


I've cut a felt rose using the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose. A Leaf Filled Flourish is behind the rose.


I love the little tag that comes with Blueprints 2. I've cut it twice here for a shadow effect.
Here are the MFT products I've used on this card:







For my next card we'll take a look at some more of the fun elements in Blueprints 2!

On this card you can see the cool cut out rectangle element included with Blueprints 2. I've woven through the longest stitched border, which is the same length as the main base layer that the largest rectangle in the set cuts. I love the perfect mats these Die-namics create!

The oval is stamped with Darling Dots. The base layer has the corners rounded, and is stamped with the new Mod Borders. I've used one of the new Doodle Garden sets, Sweet as Can Bee.


I stamped the wings of this cutie on vellum and covered them with stickles. Using a craft knife I cut a little slit behind each arm and adhered the second layer of wings.


Inside this card I used the oval from the inside of the frame, stamped it with Darling Dots and added one of those sweet stitched flags.

One of the fun things about the Blueprints line is the PDF sketches that you can download at the MFT Blog. For this card I've used one of the sketches, along with Chocolate Sentiments, this month's Triple Scoop set.

Isn't that a fun sketch? I've stamped the chevron from Spring Backgrounds on Sno Cone card with Black Licorice Ink. You'll see a new colour cardstock for my oval frame - that's Factory Green! I've stamped the frame with Darling Dots. My base layer features one of the sentiments from the set stamped in Kraft ink.

I've added little pops of Wild Cherry with a heart image that is included with Chocolate Sentiments.

Inside my card I've used more Darling Dots and repeated some of the elements from the front of the card. I just love the way that Sno Cone looks stamped with the black chevron!

For my final card, I wanted to share a gorgeous look you can get with the oval frame in Blueprints 2. These Die-namics are also great for clean and simple cards!

For this card I started with a sheet of Smooth White cardstock. This is now my go-to cardstock, it's amazing with bold images and MFT ink!

I created my paper by stamping the new LJD Sweet Roses elements in Sno Cone, Blu Raspberry and Wild Cherry ink. I then cut my frame, and stamped the sentiment on the oval in Black Licorice ink.


I reassembled the frame on an Oval Dainty Doily Die-namics. Mixing and matching Blueprints with your existing Die-namics is so fun! I layered the frame portion with foam tape before matching up the image edges. I really love the look this gives.


I finished the inside of this card with a full rose I stamped using a stem from Pretty Poppies. I really love the pretty fonts in this stamp set, don't you?
