MFT December Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the December 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 Forever and Owlways stamp set to create a clean and simple card with bright colours.


I created a circle mask with masking paper, and then I added pink and purple distress inks to the center with an ink blending tool. I then stamped, coloured and die cut my images and added them over the circle with both regular adhesive and foam adhesive.


I added the sentiment stamped onto a sentiment strip, and then I completed the card with some aqua enamel hearts and a Blu Raspberry card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for December release launch! 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 December Release Countdown | Day 1


Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things December Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on December 11 at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the Hello, Beautiful stamp set and Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics, along with the new Brilliant Blooms stamp set to create a simple, but colourful floral design.


I stamped out two of the same flower image along with two of the leaf designs and coloured them all in with Copic markers. Pink, aqua and green is a favourite colour combination of mine, so I love being able to combine them on a card design.

Once I had them stamped and coloured I die cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them to my card front. I then stamped the sentiment onto the sentiment strip and added it over the top with foam adhesive for some added dimension.


I finished the card by adding the finished panel to a Limelight card base and then I added some clear sequins with Stardust Stickles in the centers.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 1 of the December 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 party!

My Favorite Things December Release Countdown | Day 2


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things December Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on December 11 at 10am EST.

For my card today I used this new Free with $60 called Best Wishes and paired it with one of the sentiments from the Hello, Beautiful stamp set to create a greeting over a colourful embossed background.

To create the embossed background I used my favourite background stamp called Garden Flourish and stamped it onto a panel with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then added Distress ink on top.


I finished by adding the finished panel to a Limelight card base.

My Favorite Things December Release Countdown | Day 3


Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things December Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on December 11th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the newest Pure Innocence stamp set called Butterfly Kisses to create an interactive spinner card.


I stamped two of the images and adhered them back to back on a piece of string in an oval window that she can spin in.

Make sure to join me on the MFT YouTube channel on Monday - I'll have a video up sharing the creation of this card from start to finish.

My Favorite Things December Release Countdown | Day 4


Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things December Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on December 11th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Birdie Brown stamp set Friends at First Sip along with the Boutique Die-namics to create a cute little coffee shop scene.

I first created the coffee shop by die-cutting all of the pieces and then I coloured them with Copic markers and adhered them all together. I stamped the sentiment in two parts on the window and then I added the dog and cut off the bottom of him to make it look like her was peeking out from inside the coffee shop.

I coloured the girl second and added some fun rainbow colours to her striped dress and then I assembled the scene onto the card stock panel. I love how these products work so well together.

My Favorite Things December Release Countdown | Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things December Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on December 11th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Bold Beautiful Die-namics - I love this die and have so many ideas for using it! I decided to keep it simple today and use just the die cut portion that I cut from a panel of rainbow card stock.

To create the rainbow colours, I first added Distress inks to my panel and then I die cut the word from it. I carefully removed the framed word portion and I adhered it to a white card stock panel that measures 4" x 5 1/4". 

I stamped a secondary from the Hello, Beautiful stamp set onto black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then adhered it directly over the die cut word.

I adhered the finished panel to a Limelight card base and added a few clear droplets to complete the design.

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

25 Days of Christmas Tags - 2018


Hello and welcome back. Today I am taking part in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. 

Once again, MCV is the proud sponsor for today's installment of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags which is hosted by the lovely and talented Tracey McNeely.

We've chosen a theme of Botanicals - trees, mistletoe, holly - any festive greenery works!

I used the My Favorite Things Poinsettia die and went with non-traditional colours. I love the mix of aqua, pink and green. To give it a more wintery feel, I added splatters of white acrylic paint for snow. I love how it looks against the flower petals and leaves.

Make sure to visit Tracey's blog to see more tags from today's sponsor and to enter the giveaway!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
