Create 8 | MFT May 2018 release and 8 cards

Welcome to Create8, my monthly feature where I create 8 cards showcasing the latest release by MFT stamps.

Keep scrolling to see all the 8 cards I made using these products! And here is a video if you want to take a closer look on all the products from the new release.

So let’s take a look at the 8 cards that I made using lots of the new products!

card 1

For the this card I used the Martini time stamp set! I stamped the glass 3 times with different ink colors and cut them out with matching dies. A simple card but so refreshing!

card 2

Now this is one of my favorite products from the new release! I love shaker cards so how about a Margarita Glass? There are also plastic pouches available that fit in the glass to make your life easy when it comes to shaker cards. Another product that makes a difference are the frosty ice cubes! Check out the photos below !

card 3

How cute is this card for a newborn baby?! You can change the colors id it’s a boy or a girl or keep everything neutral. All the stamps and the sentiment are from the Hello, little one stamp set. And also check out the lovely scallop cross-stitch tag here!

card 4

Here is a simple birthday card, but it’s so cute! I used the Love you a Bunch stamp set with the adorable girl. For the background I used the Itsy Bitsy Polka dots stamp.

card 5

One of my favorite cards from this set is this one with the felt flowers. I used the mini rolled roses to create them and I kept everything else simple. This is a little bulky and I wouldn’t send it through the mail, but it’s great to hand it out along with a gift to the recipient.

card 6

Here is a fun card that you can customize by using different number of the alphabet balloons. The elephant comes from the Safari Animals stamp set and I love how he has his trunk up, making him look as if he is actually holding these balloons.

card 7

Here is a very clean and simple card, perfect for father’s day. A really graphic design using the inlay die cutting technique. I combined the Dad dies and the All about dad stamp set.

card 8

And last but not least here is a really fun and crazy card! My flamingos are having a party! These are all stamps from the Let’s Flamingle stamp set. For the background I used the Circles Stencil with my distress inks for a happy and fun effect.

    I imagine you had so much fun making each one of these cards! They are sensational! I must have the martini glass shaker card kit for my stash as my head is swirling with ideas on how to use it! The little ice cubes are genius! Vicky, these cards are so “summery” and inspirational! It was a pleasure watching your creative process!

    Such fun cards! The ice cubes for the shaker martini glass is a genius idea!! I really like the balloon alphabet die set and what you did with it as well as using felt for making roses. I have some felt and a rose making die but haven’t given it a try yet. I really appreciate how you make such simple yet great looking cards. Watching you create these reminds me that great looking cards don’t have to be complicated and involved! (“Keep it Simple”!) Thanks, Vicky! P.S. Am waiting for Scrapbook.com to restock the Nuvo Creative Pens so I can order and give them a try. Both Scrapbook.com and SSS sold out of them by the time I made the decision to order!

    Fun cards and video. If I have to choose, number 8 is my favorite. But the sentiment on the first card is hilarious.

    Amazing cards and video! I love the sentiment on the martini card, it’s so funny! Great job on all of the cards. My favorite though, has to be the Pure Innocence girl. The partial polka dot background really makes that card shine!

    These are great, Vicky. The ice cubes in the shaker card are too funny! I don’t have a favorite because there’s something in each one: the felt flowers, the dots behind the girl, the panel behind the elephant, the tipsy flamingoes. . . what a fun selection.

    I always enjoy watching your creative process. Thank you for all the inspiration! I do have a question about the Tim Holtz stencil brushes – how did you color the rings on the retractable cases? What a great way to organize & make finding the color- family brush quick & easy.
