MFT May Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the May 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 Watermelon Slice Die-namics along with the Sweet Sentiments stamp set to create a summer-themed birthday card.
I created the watermelon with Limelight and Smooth White card stock and used a panel that I covered with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to create the main part. Using the Distress ink allowed me to add water to it to create a more textured, realistic look.

I stamped the sentiment on black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, and I added it to the card at an angle to line up with the watermelon edge.

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on May 7th at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Builder Bears stamp set along with the Brick Background and Distressed Patterns stamp set to create a colourful design!


I heat embossd the white background and then I stamped the entire thing with random paint splatters using the Distressed Patterns stamp set.

I fussy cut the bears so I could make it look like they were actually painting the wall. I have a video on the MFT YouTube channel today sharing how I created this card.

MFT April Release - New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the April 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 Piggy Pebbles stamp set to create a clean & simple card with a bit of dimension with selective stamping. I shared a video yesterday on the MFT YouTube channel showing how I created this card so make sure to check that out if you want to see the process.

I stamped my piggy image onto white card stock with Extreme Black ink, and then I stamped it a second time on another piece of card stock as well so I could colour a separate umbrella and separate pig nose. I coloured the main image as well as the extra pieces, and then I cut out the umbrella and the pig nose with my scissors so I could layer them on top of the main image with foam adhesive.

I finished my card by adding a sentiment strip that was heat embossed with white embossing powder and then I also added some clear raindrops from Studio Katia to add a bit more dimension to the finished design.

MFT April Release Countdown | Day 1


Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things April Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on April 9th at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Free with $60 Die-namics called Stitched Rac Rac to create a colourful design with some simple die-cutting.


I die cut the Ric Rac twice from 6 different colours of card stock and adhered them to a white card stock panel with liquid glue to create a focal element of colour. I then stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Spring Friends stamp set onto black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added it the panel and then I finished the design by adding the panel to a black card base.

MFT April Release Countdown | Day 4


Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things April Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on April 9th at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Shutter Card Components Die-namics along with the Picture Perfect stamp set to create an interactive card with the adorable selfie characters.

I created a gatefold card with shutter opening on the inside and a band closure on the front. The band wraps all the way around the card and helps to keep the card closed since there is so much going on in the inside.

The selfie stamps are the perfect size to add inside the shutter opening to reveal a cute image when the card is opened up. I have a video tutorial on the MFT YouTUbe channel today sharing how I created this card from start to finish if you want to check that out. You can find the video HERE.

MFT April Release Countdown | Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things April Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on April 9th at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Picture Perfect stamp set along with the Polaroid Shaker Frame and #Captions Die-namics to create a colourful design featuring the iconic Polaroid colours.


I created the striped background by die cutting 5 strips of card stock with the Hearts in a Row - Horizontal Die-namics and then I adhered them all to my white card stock panel that measures 4" x 5 1/4". I dicut two of the Polaroid Shaker Frames from black and white card stock and layered them together for a shadow effect.

Using the same rainbow colours(with the addition of purple), I die cut the hashtag and hello word form the new #Captions Die-namics and adhered it onto the bottom of the polaroid. The photo inside the frame is from the new Picture Perfect stamp set - I finally tried colouring a balck & white photo and I really love how it turned out!

For my card today I used the new Easter Bunnies stamp set to create a sweet bunny themed card that can be used for Easter or just to say hello.
I stamped and coloured my bunny image with Copic markers and then I diecut it with the coordinating die. I then die cut the Rainy Circle from the center of my panel and inked the rain portion with Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks.

I finished my card by adding this month's Free with $60 (Tree Branch) on top of the rain circle with foam adhesive for some added dimension and I stamped the Hello sentiment on the main panel with black ink.

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on March 12th at 10am EDT.

For my project today I created a felt stuffie with the new Cottontail Cutie Die-namics. I love these cute critters and love working with felt so I was excited to bring them to life in felt form.




I used the Arch STAX dies to create their bodies since the bodies that come with them are a little too small to put stuffing in. Stay tuned tomorrow for a video on the MFT YouTube channel sharing how I create these cute little characters.

For my card today I used the new A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics and the coordinating A2 Rectangle Shaker Pouches to create a full card shaker with a die cut sentiment on top.
I ink blended the background with Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Worn Lipstick and then I die cut the frame from the entire panel. I added a bunch of sequins inside and then I adhered the frame and pouch over top. I finished the card with the die cut Birthday Wishes sentiment.

MFT March Release Countdown | Day 4


Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on Mar h 12 at 10am EDT.

For my card today I used the new Just Ducky stamp set along with the Mini Staggered Raindrops stencil and created a colourful, rain-filled sky.



I added ink through the stencil onto a white card stock panel and used rainbow colours to make it colourful. I liked the look of the raindrops upside down, so I did them that way on the card and left a white space at the bottom right of the panel.

I added a blue die cut piece to the panel (from the Birdbath Die-namics) for a water puddle, and then I added my stamped ducky on top. How cute is he?!

MFT March Release Countdown - Day 5


Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on March 12th at 10am EDT.

For my cards today, I used the new Interactive Swing Die-namics along a bunch of other new products, to create 3 interactive swinging cards.


For my first card, I combined the swing elements with the new Easter Bunnies stamp set (stay tuned for that one tomorrow!) and created an Easter design where the bunny actually swings on the card. I love this new die set because there are so many ways you can use it to create interactive cards.
The second card features the newest Pure Innocence stamp set, and this one works great because she is actually on a swing in the stamped image.
And last but not least, I used the new Sweet Friends with the Swing and used the treetop die from the Interactive Swing set, to create a cloud. :)
If you want to see the Interactive Swing die in action, you can see how I created all 3 of these cards in today's video HERE on YouTube.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
