MFT February Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the February Release New Product Launch! All of the new products we've been sharing for the past five days are available NOW at My Favorite Things!

For my card today I used the new Turntable Die-namics along with the For the Record stamp set to create a colourful, interactive card.

I die cut the pieces for the record from white card stock, including a label for the center that I created by trimming the record down with a smaller circle die.  I used Distress inks on the record label to add colour to it, and I used Copic markers to add colour to the record. 

I die cut the turntable player from Silver Sparkle card stock and the layered it onto the base with a brad so it can be moved on the record. I also attached the record with a brad so it can spin on the card. 



I added the pink sentiment strip with foam adhesive on each end so it wouldn't sit directly on the record and then I finished the card with some clear sequins with Silver Stickles in the centers.

Thanks so much for joining me for February release launch! Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

MFT February Release Countdown | Day 1


Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things February Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on February 5th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Party Penguins stamp set along with the, new Birth-Yay stamp set to create a colorful birthday card.

I stamped the stacked of animals onto a white card stock panel with Extreme Black ink, and then I coloured it in with Copic markers. Once I had it coloured, I die cut a piece of masking paper with the coordinating die and put it on the stamped image to protect it so I could add some blue ink to the background.

I love doing masking with the coordinating die because it leaves a white border around the image before the inking starts.

I stamped a sentiment from the new Party Penguins stamp set onto black card stock, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, and then I adhered it to the card in separate strips. I finished the card with some clear gems and some white pen detail on the stamped images.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 1 of the February release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

See you tomorrow for the release!

MFT February Release Countdown | Day 3


Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things February Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on February 5th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Birthday Cake Die-namics and created a colourful, rainbow birthday cake design!


I die cut all of the cake pieces from white card stock, and then I used my Copic markers to colour in each piece with a colour of the rainbow. For the flames at the very top, I used Silver Sparkle card stock.

I stamped a sentiment from the new Party Penguins stamp set onto black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered it to the card with foam adhesive and added a couple of clear gems for some added detail. 

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 3 of the February release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

MFT February Release Countdown | Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things February Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on February 5th at 10am EST.

For my first card today I used the new City Block Die-namics to create a silhouetted scene with a colourful background.
I created the background by adding an assortment of Distress Inks in rainbow order on a white card stock panel. I then die cut the city from black card stock, and I left all of the little window pieces inside so it would look like the buildings were completely dark.

I then added some white enamel hearts to tie in with the sentiment that I used from the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 5 of the February release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

My Favorite Things WSC 421


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the newest sketch challenge at the My Favorite Things Challenge blog. I decided to use the new Heart Art card kit for my card this week and used the Double the Love Die-namics to create a fun focal sentiment.
I added a strip of patterned paper to the side of the card using the Sweet Stack paper pad, and then I layered a Blu Raspberry panel over the top with a red scallop edge strip added beside it. I love how adding the red really makes the colours pop.

I then die cut the letters from card stock colours that coordinated, and also stamped and die cut one of the hearts from the Heart Art stamp set. I arranged them all kind of in a square formation and added a stamped sentiment strip as well.

Make sure to head over to the Challenge Blog to more inspiration using this week's sketch and to enter your own for a chance to win the weekly prize! Thanks so much for stopping by!

MFT January Card Kit Release


Hello and welcome back. The new Heart Art Card Kit and the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set (and coordinating dies) are now available at My Favorite Things! I love all of the new products and had so much fun creating with them!

For my card today, I combined the card kit with the new Stacey Yacula stamp set to create a cute love-filled scene complete with a shaker balloon.
To create the card I first stamped the bear image onto a white card stock panel but I made sure not to ink up the top part of the balloon. I then used the new Mini Heart Shaker Window & Frame die to die cut an opening at the top of the balloon. I added a shaker pouch (cut from the Heart Trio Shaker Pouches) and backed it with Wild Wisteria card stock that I had stamped with one of the hearts from the new Heart Art stamp set.

I added in some sequins to make it a shaker and then I added the panel to a Blu Raspberry card base. I completed the card by adding grass to the bottom, a pink sentiment strip and a collection of clouds that I stamped from the Cutieasaurus stamp set.

MFT January Card Kit Countdown - Day 1


Hello and welcome back! Today is the second day of the countdown to the new My Favorite Things January card kit called Heart Art. This new kit will be available on January 22nd at 10am EST.

For today's card, I created a rainbow of stamped candy hearts - as soon as I saw the Heart Art stamp set in the kit, I really wanted to do some tone-on-tone stamping because I immediately thought of the candy conversational hearts when I saw it.

For this card, I used a rainbow selection of card stock colours and then pulled out the coordinating inks so I could stamp all of the hearts with the matching colour. There are 6 different heart stamps in the stamp set, so I was able to include all 6 of them on my card.

I adhered them all onto a white card stock panel and added that to a Razzle Berry card base. I completed the card with a stamped sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set onto a black card stock sentiment strip.


In addition to the rainbow version, I also made one that includes the colours that come in this month's kit. You can see the video sharing how I created it in today's MFTv episode.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for the full kit reveal and join me back here tomorrow for the release. Thanks for stopping by!
