MFT | Love Is In the Air


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a project to share that I created for the Love Is In the Air - a love-themed week over at the MFT blog sharing projects using the new January release.

For my project, I created a framed wall print and a coordinating greeting card using the new Hearts Entwined Die-namics.

This is a really easy project to create, and it's a perfect way to let friends and co/workers know your thinking of them not only during February but all year!

I die cut a bunch of the Hearts Entwined from white card stock and layered them on top of one another. For the top layer on both the card and the wall print, I created a rainbow design with Distress inks and then die cut the hearts so I would end up with a dimensional rainbow design. :)

I did create a video sharing the process for how I created this, so you can check that out over on the MFT YouTube channel.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog this week for more great ideas using our newest release.

MFT January Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the January 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 Cute Chemists to create a Harry Potter inspired card - as soon as I saw this set that was the first thing I thought of!

I stamped out the boy chemist onto white card stock with Extreme Black ink, and then I coloured him in with Copic markers. I love that the stamp set includes a pair of glasses that you can stamp on either him or the girl (who could totally be Hermione). To make him look a little more like Harry Potter, I drew a little tie on him and made his shirt look like a sweater vest.

One I had him all stamped, I added a sentiment from the Magical Day stamp set (I wanted magic to be in the sentiment), and then I added the panel to a red card base. I also added some clear droplets to look like bubbles coming out of the beakers.

Thanks so much for joining me for January 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 January Release Countdown | Day 1


Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on January 8th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Tweethearts stamp set to create a rainbow design with the small envelope stamp included in this set.

I stamped out six of the envelopes onto white card stock with Extreme Black ink and then I coloured them all in with Copic markers. I then cut them all out with scissors and adhered them to a white card stock panel that measures 4" x 5 1/4".

I stamped out the sentiment onto black card stock with Versamark ink and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder before die cutting it with a banner from Hearts in a Row - Horizontal.

I finished the card by adding the finished panel to a Limelight card base measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 1 of the January 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 January Release Countdown | Day 2


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on January 8th at 10am EST.

For my cards today I used the new Hearts Entwined Die-namics to create two cards from one panel.
I first created an inked rainbow panel by adding Distress inks to a white card stock panel and then I die cut the Hearts Entwined from the panel. I adhered the die cut one a white card stock panel and then added it to a Blu Raspberry card base. 

For the second card, I die cut the Hearts Entwined again from a white piece of card stock and adhered it to a white card stock panel and then I added the centers back in from the rainbow one I had die cut.

I added the second panel to a Limelight card base, and then I stamped, and heat embossed a sentiment from Sweet Celebrations onto Black Licorice sentiment strips and added them to the finished cards.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 2 of the January 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 more countdown fun!

My Favorite Things January Release Countdown | Day 3


Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on January 8th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Lots of Hearts stencil along with the Sassy Pants Love stamp set to create a bright, colourful card.

I first created the background by laying the stencil over a white card stock panel and then adding the Distress ink colours over top in rainbow order.  I then heat embossed the sentiment onto black card stock with white embossing powder and then I adhered it onto the card with foam adhesive with some white string under it for some added detail.

I finished the card by adding it to a black card base that measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

My Favorite Things January Release Countdown | Day 4


Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on January 8th at 10am EST.

For my card today I used the new Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and the Interactive Pull Tabs along with the new Cutieasaurus stamp set (stay tuned for this one later this week!) to create an interactive slider card.

I concealed the slider channel under the grass and added the boy dinosaur onto the pull tab with a piece of acetate so he moves when the tab is pulled. I created a video sharing how to create this card so you can check it out on the MFT YouTube channel today!

I mention it in the video, but I actually put the slider part on the wrong side of the card so instead of making them kiss when you pull, they kiss when you push it back in LOL! :)

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 4 of the January 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 January Release Countdown | Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on January 8th at 10am EST.

For my first card today I used the new Heart Tree Die-namics to create a rainbow design with the die cut inlay technique.




I first die cut the tree from white card stock, and then I adhered it over some exposed adhesive on a backing sheet so I could easily add all of the little pieces back in. I then die cut the tree from a bunch of different card stock colours and pieced it all back together. 

It did take a bit of time to do since there are so many pieces, but I love the look of it with all of the fun rainbow colours. I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set onto a black sentiment strip and added that to complete the design.

I also used the awesome new Nugget Label, Window & Frame Die-namics to create a snowman themed treat in both a winter design and a Valentine's design. I love our shaker pouches and dies and this newest one is SO FUN! I can't wait to make a million treats with it throughout the year.


Stay tuned to the MFT YouTube channel on Monday... I'll be sharing a video sharing how I created these fun tags!
