MFT October Vault Release - Day 1


Hello, and welcome back! It's time for the next Vault release from My Favorite Things, and this month we have some great holiday designs returning! I was so excited to see the Comfy Sweater Die-namics and decided to feature the larger of the two on today's card.

All of the new Vault products are available now at My Favorite Things! :)

I die cut the Captions Alphabet letters to spell Merry, and I coloured them in with Copic markers to make them colourful. I also stamped the sweater with Grout Gray ink and the Knitted Sweater background to create a subtle texture on the sweater.

Everything was stamped with black ink, and I added some blue distress ink to the background before adhering the sweater to the card with foam adhesive.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see all of the new products releasing today!

October 2019 | MFT & Friends


Hello and welcome to the October 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 Festive Friends stamp set to create a clean and simple winter scene on my card. I created the inked background with distress ink and a die cut circle to mask just the circle shape. I die cut a white snow drift with the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and used the same circle shape to cut it out so it match the inked area.

I stamped out the snowman image with Extreme Black ink, coloured it in with Copic markers and adhered it on my winter scene with foam adhesive. I added some white pen detail for the sky to look like snow and then I stamped the sentiment underneath it with black ink.

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

MFT October Release Countdown | 1 More Day to Go!


Hello, and welcome! We have 1 more day until the MFT October release is available and we have more great products to share! For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on October 8 at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Peace, Love, and Joy Stencil to create a card that features selective stenciling.

To create the individual circles, I secured the stencil onto my panel and then I adhered a circle template that I created with the Circle STAX Die-namics over yop. I then carefully applied the ink through the open circle with a blend of red and green distress inks.

You can see how I created a trio of these cards on the MFT YouTube channel today.

Are You Ready? 2 More Days Until the October Release!


Hello, and welcome! We have 2 more days until the MFT October release is available, and we have more great products to share! For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on October 8 at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Joyful Wreath Die-namics and the Captions Numbers (this month's Free with $60) to create a square card design perfect for celebrating New Year's!


I die cut the Joyful Wreath from white card stock, and then I coloured it in with Copic markers. I love adding marker detail to a white die cut, so it looks more dimensional and realistic. Once I had it coloured, I adhered to a white card stock panel and layered a stamped sentiment banner with it that was stamped with the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set. I die cut 2020 from gold glitter card stock and adhered it directly under the banner to complete the design.

I stamped the large sentiment with black ink and layered the elf hat on top to make it look like it was resting on the words. I layered the panel onto a piece of Blu Raspberry card stock and then added it to a Wild Cherry card base. I finished the design with a button added to the elf hat. :)

More Inspiration from the MFT Vault!


Hello and welcome back! Today I have another card to share featuring some of the new products that just came out of the MFT Vault! I am loving seeing what older products will make a return each month - so exciting!

For my card today I sed the Game Controller Die-namics along with the Level Up stamp set to create a card perfect for the gamer in your life.

I die cut the controller from Grout Gray card stock and then I die cut all the buttons from white so I could customize the colours with my Copic markers. I glued them all on once they were coloured and then I covered them all with clear glaze to make them look shiny and dimensional.

I used Distress Inks and created a striped design on the card base with colours similar to the ones I used on the controller. I adhered the controller with foam adhesive, added a cord at the top and stamped the sentiment in black ink directly underneath.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. You can see even more inspiration using the new Vault products on the MFT blog.

MFT September Vault Release


Hello, and welcome back! Today we're releasing a handful of products straight from the MFT Vault - I love the products making a return and couldn't wait to use them on my cards!

For my card today I used the Miss You a Latte stamp set along with the Gift Card Shaker Window to create a Starbuck's inspired card perfect to send to a coffee-loving friend. :)

I coloured my image with Copic markers and added green and white details to the cups to make them look like Starbuck's cup. I had the perfect gift card to use with the design, so I added that using the Gift Card Shaker Pouch, with a few sequins added in for a little sparkle and shine.

I stamped a sentiment from the Cup of Love stamp set into Gravel Gray card stock and die cut it using the Skinny Strips Die-namics. I adhered the sentiment strip and stamped image to the gift card pouch and finished the design with some additional sequins.

MFT WSC 454


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the latest MFT sketch challenge.

For my card today I used the new Café All Day Die-namics and paired it with the cute bear image from the Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set to create a coffee-themed card.


I used the coordinating shaker pouches and created a shaker card and added a coffee sleeve over top with a stamped sentiment from the Perk Up stamp set. I love how perfectly it fits in that space. I also stamped the Knitted Sweater background at the bottom of the card instead of creating the vertical stripes on the sketch design.


I stamped out the bear image with Extreme Black ink and coloured him in with Copic markers. I am really loving these shades of green lately, which are YG61, G24 and G85. Once I had him all coloured, I die cut him and adhered him to the front of the card with foam adhesive. 

Thanks so much for joining me for this week's sketch challenge. Make sure to check it out on the MFT blog and enter your card for a chance to win!

September 2019 | MFT & Friends


Hello and welcome to the September 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 Cafe All Day Die-namics to create a holiday set of tags and a card.



These were so quick and easy to create with a strip of card stock and a couple of square dies to create the belt buckle. I embossed a holiday design on Wild Cherry card stock and then I die cut it with the base of the coffee cup for the two tags. I added the black card stock strip and gold sparkle belt buckle to make them look like Santa's suit and then I created 2 tag designs.


For the card design, I used the coordinating shaker pouches and made a shaker coffee cup with the same Santa suit design. You can see how I created these tags and card in today's video on the MFT YouTube channel HERE.

Introducing the MFT Vault


We’re opening up the MFT Vault, and we can’t wait to reveal what’s inside. With 13 years of experience under our belts, we’re thrilled to rediscover some classic MFT designs, and share them with you all over again!

We might unearth an old favorite with a new twist, or possibly a brand-new-to-you design you missed out on in the past. We’re confident that this month’s vault contains something you’ll love...are you ready to see what treasure awaits?

For my card today, I created a colourful rainbow card featuring the Artist Palette & Brush Die-namics. I loved this die set when it was originally available so I was pretty excited to see it come out of the Vault!

I coloured the palette paint with Copic markers and added the palette to a white card stock panel. For the sentiment I used a mix of die cut letters and a partially stamped sentiment.

Make sure to head over to the MFT Blog to see the other products that were released from the Vault today! I can't wait to hear what you're most excited about. :)

MFT July Hits & Highlights


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the July Hits & Highlights post for My Favorite Things. This month we're continuing the birthday celebration and sharing projects created with the July release.

For my card I used the Cocktail Hour Die-namics along with the A Toast to You stamp set to create a fun and colourful birthday card design.

I die cut all of the pieces from white card stock and then I used my Copic markers to colour them in. I decided to use a rainbow of colours (I know, big surprise right? LOL!) for all of the bottles and glasses and then I coloured the bar cart with shades of grey.

I finished the card with a stamped sentiment strip and I also added some clear sequins for detail and dimension.

MFT WSC 447


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the latest MFT sketch challenge.

One of my favourite things to do is ink blend with my stencils in rainbow colours, and when I saw this week's sketch, I immediately knew I wanted to use my Drifts and Hills stencil for the wavy lines on the sketch.

I started at the bottom of my panel and added each colour one at a time by ink blending off the edge of the stencil and then letting the ink get lighter as I worked my way up the panel in each color. Once I finished the ink blending, I die cut the word 'HI' using the Impact Alphabet dies and I adhered the panel onto a white card base with foam adhesive.

I stamped a second sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock and white heat embossed it and then I layered it over the die cut sentiment. I finished the card with some clear sequins and added Sprinkled Sugar Stickles to the centers. 

Thanks so much for joining me for this week's sketch challenge. Make sure to check it out on the MFT blog and enter your card for a chance to win!
