Craftie Cafe : MFT Tic Tac Toe Card

Hi everyone and welcome to today’s blog post using some fabulous goodies from MFT.

With Valentine’s day coming up I have made this sweet fun interactive card to play along with this month’s Craftie Cafe online store theme.



I love how MFT have created a co-ordinating stampset, dies, pouches AND shaker embellishments / enamel accents which I have used for today’s card. The Design Team is focusing on Love & Friendships this month and I thought I would kick start it to fall in line with Valentine’s Day.

Even though is a rather quick and easy the boldness of the colours and black and white stripes really pop.

When ink blending for the “Love” sentiment I went out to achieve an ombre ink blending where I went heavier handed on one side then lightened my hand pressure towards the other side. I demonstrate this in my You tube video linked below.


Unintentionally I ended up using most of MFT supplies on my card.

To add a pop of colour I have used Distress Ink Candied Apple and I have added a distress look to the inking by sprinting water and picking the excess up with a dry cloth. I have been obsessing about my Distress Oxide Inks lately that my normal Ranger Distress Inks have been a bit neglected so I dusted them off and have started using them again. Watch out for some of upcoming projects as I have revived my love for the inks again.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card creation and I look forward to reading your comments.
