4 More Days Until the MFT September Release!

 Hello and welcome back to the MFT September release countdown! We're sharing projects all week long featuring all of the new products from the upcoming September release.

For my card today I used the new Christmas Cardinals stamp set to create a classic and festive design. Last year I was so inspired by my friend Carissa's idea to use small pieces of Christmas music as backdrops on her holiday designs that I immediately one and saved a bunch to use on this years cards. I thought the cardinals would be perfect for this look!

I adhered the sheet music onto a red card base and then I layered a piece of vellum over top. I stamped and die cut the cardinal and holly branches and then I adhered them over the vellum to create my scene.

For the sentiment I used the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set and continued with some of the lyrics from the song featured on the music and layered it over a gold sparkle strip to add some fun sparkle.

To complete the card, I added some sequins and shiny stickles to them and the white parts on the cardinal.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!

It's Time to Countdown to the September Release from My Favorite Things!

Hello and welcome back! It has been so long since I've been on here sharing cards and it's good to be back! Today we are kicking off the countdown to the My Favorite Things September release so it's about to get very festive around here. :)

For my card today, I used the new Present Time stamp set from Birdie Brown, along with the Sending Christmas Joy Die-namics to create a simple card with a bold sentiment.

I die cut the sentiment from Tropical Teal, Razzle Berry, Limelight, Summer Splash and Wild Cherry and then I created a colourful greeting by adding multiple colours throughout.

I replaced the 'o' in Joy with a snowman from the Present Time stamp set and coloured the stocking to match the die cut letters. To complete the card, I added a stamped sentiment from the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set and layered it onto a snow hill the I die cut with the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll see you tomorrow for more countdown fun!

The MFT June Release is Here!


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a new card to share from the My Favorite Things June release that's available now! There are so many great summer products including lots of new stamps, dies and stencils plus 3 new paper pads!

For my card today I wanted to feature the new Foiled Frames - Sqaure Die-namics so I paired them with an image from the newest Stacey Yacula stamp set called Hooray Kind of Day.

I used two of the square frames and created a double border with aqua foil and then I built the scene over top by adding the stamped and die cut image along with a stamped sentiment directly on the panel and a few clear droplets for some added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy the June release and find something fun to create with! :)

MFT May Release!


Hello and welcome back! We've been counting down all week to the newest release from My Favorite Things and it's officially available now! 

For my card today I used the new Totally Awesome stamp set and paired it with one of the fun gnomes from the Hanging with My Gnomies stamp set to create a fun and playful design.

I stamped out the sentiment with black ink and then I stamped, coloured, and die cut the adorable image. For some added detail, I used my white gel pen and added dots to his hat. To complete the sentiment, I stamped a partial sentiment from the same stamp set onto red card stock and die cut it with a skinny strips die.

Thanks so much for hanging out this week for the MFT May release countdown!

1 More Day to Go!


Hello and welcome back to the May release countdown for My Favorite Things. All of the new products will be available tomorrow, May 5 so set your alarms and get ready to shop!

For my card today, I used the new Main Squeeze stamp set along with an older stamp set called Spirited Sentiments to create a fun custom sentiment on my card.

I cut apart the smaller stamp set to make it fit with the larger one and stamped it out in black ink with my Misti stamping tool. I then stamped out the images and coloured them in to look like limes. I added them to the top of the panel and added the panel to a Jellybean Green card base.

I'll see you tomorrow for the May release!

Just 3 More Days!


Hello, and welcome back! It's day 3 of the countdown to the MFT May release, and I'm so excited to be back with another card. All of the new release products will be available on May 5 at 10am EDT!

For my card today, I used the new Brilliant Butterflies stamp set along with the new Foiled Frames - Circle dies to create a simple design with a fun foil accent.

I stamped out the butterfly onto white card stock with Razzle Berry and Black Licorice ink since it's a layering stamp, and then I diecut it with the coordinating die. I then trimmed down a panel to a 4 1/4" square and used the new foiling dies with my Gemini FoilPress to create a double layer circle design.

I stamped and die cut a sentiment strip on black card stock and layered that and the butterfly on top, and finished the card with some clear droplets for some added detail and dimension.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I'll be back tomorrow with more countdown fun!

For my card today I used the new Grande Greenery dies in both the solid and the outline to create a colourful rainbow wreath perfect for any time of card occasion!

I die cut the largest cluster from black for the outline 7 times and then I die cut the same cluster but in the solid version from seven different colors of card stock. I glued the pieces together and then trimmed the top 5 leaves off of each one to use for the wreath.

I layered them all on foam dots for some dimension and then I stamped the sentiment in the center from the Heap of Hellos stamp set.

It's Time to Countdown to a New MFT Release!


Hello, and welcome back! It's been a minute since I blogged, but I'm so excited to be back to share a card as we countdown to the My Favorite Things May release. All of the new products will be available on May 5 at 10am EDT.

For my card today, I used the new Hanging with My Gnomies stamp set and the Rainbow Whimsy Die-namics (this month's Free with $60) to create a  colourful scene that reminds me of spring!

I stamped out the images from the Hanging with My Gnomies stamp set with Extreme Black ink onto white card stock and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I also die cut the rainbow from colourful card stock and decided to only use 3 of the 5 pieces to make it a little smaller on my scene.

Thanks so much for joining me today - make sure to come back tomorrow for more countdown fun!
