My Favorite Things August Release!

Hello and welcome back! The new My Favorite Things August release is now available at mftstamps.com and I can't wait to see what's on everyone must have list. I love this release because there is a little bit of something for everyone! 

For my card today, I created a starry background with the Star Celebration stencil and Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks.


Once I created the background, I used the new Written in the Stars stamp set and the new Shining Stars Die-namics to create the bold sentiment on the card. I love the silver sparkle on the large diecut word. :-)


If you would like a closer look at the how-to for this card, you can see me create it from start to finish here in this weeks episode of MFTv. :-)

For my card today I used the new More Monsters stamp set to create a fun card with polaroid photos.

I added them to a Stone Gray card base and added my sentiment to the bottom of one of the frames.

My Favorite Things August Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome back to the My Favorite Things August release countdown! We're sharing the new products all week that will be available on Tuesday August 8th at 9pm EST and today is day 3 of the coutndown.

For my card today I used the new Wild About You stamp set to create a clean and simple card featuring a rainbow zebra. :-)


I stamped the zebra with Black Licorice Dye ink and then I used Copic markers to colour in all of his stripes in rainbow colour. I love how fun the line detail is on these adorable safari animals. It makes them a lot of fun to colour!


Once I had him all coloured, I diecut him with the coordinating die and then and adhered him to a white cardstock panel with foam adhesive. I then stamped the sentiment under him and added some die cut hearts for some added detail.

I added Glossy Accents to each of the hearts to give them a raised shiny look and I added some glitter to the zebras stripes with a clear glitter pen.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas using this month's release and a closer look at everything we revealed today.

See you tomorrow for more countodwn fun! :-)

My Favorite Things August Release Countdown | Day 5

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the August release countdown from My Favorite Things! I am so excited to share all of the new products this week. I get so excited to hear what you guys love and what's on your must have list! :-)

My favourite from this release without a doubt is the Flamazing stamp set and Die-namics. I love flamingos and the designs in this stamp set are awesome!


I created two cards using this set and used similar colours and design elements. I did change up the overall layout of each card. In addition to the Flamazing stamp set, I also used the new Fab Foliage Die-namics (coming soon!) to create borders on my cards.



Both of my cards today are part of the August release free online class that will be available on release night as both a PDF donload and a video. You'll be able to see how I created both of my cards from start to finish so stay tuned! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by for Day 5 of the August release countdown! Make sure to check out the MFT Stamps blog for more ideas using the new products that were revealed today.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun! :-)
