MFT March Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the March 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 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.

MFT March Release Countdown | Day 2


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.

Hello and welcome to day 3 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 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.

MFT February Release Countdown | Day 5


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.

MFT January Card Kit Countdown - Day 1


Hello and welcome back! Today is the second day of the countdown to the new My Favorite Things January card kit called Heart Art. This new kit will be available on January 22nd at 10am EST.

For today's card, I created a rainbow of stamped candy hearts - as soon as I saw the Heart Art stamp set in the kit, I really wanted to do some tone-on-tone stamping because I immediately thought of the candy conversational hearts when I saw it.

For this card, I used a rainbow selection of card stock colours and then pulled out the coordinating inks so I could stamp all of the hearts with the matching colour. There are 6 different heart stamps in the stamp set, so I was able to include all 6 of them on my card.

I adhered them all onto a white card stock panel and added that to a Razzle Berry card base. I completed the card with a stamped sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set onto a black card stock sentiment strip.


In addition to the rainbow version, I also made one that includes the colours that come in this month's kit. You can see the video sharing how I created it in today's MFTv episode.

I die cut the word love using the Double the Love dies, from multiple colours of card stock included in the kit and then I stamped one of the hearts from Heart Art to replace the 'o.' I die cut a panel of white card stock with the Scallop Basic Edges dies, and then I layered it onto a piece of striped paper from the Sweet Stack pad.

MFT & Misti | We Have Serious Chemistry


Hello and welcome back! Today we have a fun post to share because we're not only featuring card making with My Favorite Things products, we're also showing some ways that we use the Misti to create our stamped cards. 

One of my favourite things about the Misti is being able to use it to perfectly stamp an image in multiple positions on one panel. I used the new Cute Chemists stamp set, and even though the sizing is a little off for the scene I wanted to created, I decided to make it anyway. :)

So I wanted to stamp the beaker in two rows of three to make it look like they were sitting on a shelf. I went with six, so I could create a rainbow of colours on all of them, including the one the girl is holding. Stamping them perfectly lined up is really easy with the Misti.

Once you get the stamp positioned onto the Misti door, you just need to move the panel in the same increments each time you stamp it. I stamped the top row first and simply moved my panel along the edge of the panel to stamp them continuously in a row.

I then shifted the panel over to the right, and then I stamped the beakers exactly as I did in the first row, except this time I had the panel moved over, so they created a row underneath. So quick and easy once you decide where you want the stamping to be, and everything is lined up perfectly.


Once I had them all stamped, I added a line under them with a black marker, stamped the girl and then coloured everything in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using my Misti as well and then added the finished panel to a Blu Raspberry card base.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas using MFT products with the Misti and for a chance to win some fun giveaways!

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 420


Hello and welcome back! It's time for the weekly sketch challenge at the MFT Challenge blog and I decided to create a colourful card featuring the new Rainbows and Unicorns stamp set. I love love love the sentiments in this set so I used one of my favourites and paired it with the rainbow and cloud image.

I added stripes of patterned paper from the Sweet Celebration paper pad to a white card stock panel and then I adhered that to a Limelight card base. I then stamped out my rainbow image and coloured it with Copic markers so it would coordinate with the colours on the patterened papers. 

I then stamped the sentiment onto an Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip, adhered it to the bottom strip and then I finished the card with some small heart enamel dots to go with the greeting.

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.

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.
