Snow Globe Card Kit Release!

Hello and welcome back! We've been counting down to the release of the newest My Favorite Things card kit, Snow Globe and the wait is over! The full kit is available now at MFT Stamps!

For my card tonight, I decided not to create an actual dimensional snow globe, but to use just the shape and some inking for the background. I used the snowman image from the Scenic Snow Globe die set from the kit and created a snow couple. :)

I love that by just adding a bow and a little bit of pink, I was able to make a snow'wo'man to go along with the snowman. To create the snow globe sky in the background I die cut the snow globe from some masking paper, added the negative piece to my card stock panel and used an ink blending tool to add the blue ink.

I added a snow hill under the snowman and snow'wo'man and covered the entire thing with adhesive. I then added the Diamond Dust on top and pressed it into the adhesive to make my snow hill dimensional and sparkly.

I stamped the sentiment repeatedly under the image to mimic the song lyrics and then I adhered the completed panel to a top folding card base that I covered with black and white striped patterned paper.

My Favorite Things Card Kit Countdown Day 1

Hello and welcome back! I'm back today with another card as we count down to the newest card kit from My Favorite Things called Snow Globe. I had so much fun creating my cards with this kit and still have so many ideas for cards I want to make!

For today's card I created another snow-filled snow globe, but this time I added a snowman and a couple of trees to the inside. I love that there are so many options with the different scenes you can create.

I die cut the panel from white card stock with the rectangle from Blueprints 13, and then I cut the snow globe opening into the panel. I created a snowy scene with the snowman, trees and some snow hills and then I filled it with Diamond Dust before sealing it all inside my dome shaker pouch.

I added the bottom of the snow globe with Sno Cone card stock and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Dye ink. I completed the card by adding some clear sequins and adhering the finished panel to a Sno Cone card base.

Make sure to head over to the MFT Blog for more ideas using the kit and a chance to win some prizes! See you tonight for the release party! :)

My Favorite Things Snow Globe Card Kit!

Hello and welcome back! Today is the first day of the countdown for the My Favorite Things September card kit and I am so excited to share my cards with you over the next two days. I love holiday card making and this holiday themed kit is perfect for all kinds of winter and holiday card designs.

For my first card, I created a scenic snow globe card that extends right across the entire card front and not just inside the snow globe.

I created my snowy landscape so it would be continuous across the card both inside and outside of the snow globe. I'm sharing the creation of this card in today's episode of MFTv so make sure to check it out to see how easy it is to create this beautiful scene.


Make sure to check out the MFT blog for the full kit reveal and a ton of great card samples from the design team using this month's kit.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!

My Favorite Things September Release Replay

Hello and welcome back. Today the MFT design team is sharing more projects using the awesome new September release products.

For my card today I used the Modern Trees stamp set and paired it with an older sentiment stamp set that I love and definitely don't use enough.

I stamped the trunk of my tree with Versamark ink onto watercolour paper and then I heat embossed it with Ranger Brick embossing powder. I love how realistic this embossing powder makes the wood on the tree look. 

I then stamped the tree top with Distress inks and added some water to the stamped images with a wet paintbrush. I did the multi coloured stamping by adding a little of each ink colour to the stamp before stamping it. 

I stamped the sentiment in black under the tree and covered it with clear embossing powder for some added shine. I added a bit of blue colour behind the tree and then I finished the card with some yellow sequins and gold stickles.

You can see what the rest of the team created by visiting the MFT blog here. Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)

My Favorite Things September Release Party!

Hello and welcome back! It's time to shop for the new September release products at My Favorite Things! All of the new products are now available at MFT Stamps and there are so many fun new stamps and dies!

For the release party I created 3 very bright cards with some really great sentiments from the new All Smiles stamp set and the Double the Smiles Die-namics.

I created all of these stenciled backgrounds on the weekend with the intention of adding the smile sentiments to them in different ways. I stamped the word smile all over the brick background, keeping the stamping on each brick and trying to create a graffiti look to it. I adhered it to a white card stock mat and then added it to a black card base.

For the scallop background I stamped my sentiment onto black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then trimmed it down and adhered it the card before adhering the entire panel to a white card base.

I kept the Framework background super simple and just added the big die cut smile word right to the center. I completed all of them by adding Ice Cube Jewels to the card fronts in a random formation.

Make sure to head over to the MFT Stamps blog for more ideas and a chance to win some new release giveaways! Happy shopping! :-)

My Favorite Things September Release Countdown - Day 2

Hello and welcome back. It's day 2 of the My Favorite Things September release countdown and today I have two cards to share using the new Modern Trees stamp set. I love this set because there are so many fun deisgns and techniques you can do with it since its a layering stamp set.

I created two cards showing the four seasons on each of the cards using two different designs and two different inking techniques.

I used the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics on both of my cards to create individual sqaures for each of the seasons.  For the first card I stamped 4 trees changing the leaves for the seasons and on the second card I stamped the tree once in the center of 4 squares that had differnet ink colours to represent the seasons.

I created both of these cards for the September release class so stay tuned tomorrow night for a PDF download of the class along with a video sharing how I created both of my cards.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!  :-)

My Favorite Things September Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome back! It's day 3 of the countdown to the My Favorite Things September release and I have a few cards to share that use one of my favourite releases from this month, the Blessing and Blessed Die-namics.

I used a couple of older backgrounds (Wavy Coloring Book and Garden Flourish) and heat embossed them onto a white card stock panel with white embossing powder. I then added Distress inks using one of my favourite holiday colour combinations - Peacock Feathers, Festive Berries and Lucky Clover. 

I created four backgrounds, and added the same ink colours to all four. I then added some water to give them a distressd look before trimming them down and adding them to a white card base. I stamped the Christmas part of the sentiment using a stamp from the new Bitty Bears stamp set onto black card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I diecut the word 'blessings' from white card stock 4 times and adhered them all to vellum. I then carefully cut around the vellum to leave a border around the word and then I adhered the sentiments to the card design to complete them. 

I created these cards for tomorrowa episode of MFTv so stay tuned to the MFT YouTube channel if you want to see them created from start to finish. :-) 

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!
