Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the My Favorite Things December release countdown! For the next five days we'll be sharing projects using all of the new products that are coming out for the December MFT release, on Tuesday December 6th at 9pm EST!

For today's card I created a cute scene featuring the Somebunny I Love stamp set and used the new Stitched Sentiment Strip Die-namics to add the sentiment onto the card.

I created a watercolor galaxy background for the window which I think pairs perfectly with the sleeping bunny in his bed.

Creating Felt Owl Ornaments

Hello! Today I have a fun project to share that I created for my sister for the holidays. We both love owls so I thought it would be fun to create a collection of 12 felt owl ornaments for her tree. I used the Memory Box Plush Wise Owl die to create the owls with aqua, grey and white felt.

Most of the felt that I used is older MFT felt that is no longer available, but Taylored Expressions has some really great felt that would work great. I did two different shades of aqua for my owls so I have 6 of each design.

I love the look of the aquas with the grey and white felt for the eyes and the body. To embellish the eyes even more, I used sequins and layered them on top of one another for dimension and then I added a bit of Silver Stickles to the centers.

I found a really awesome box at Ikea to put all of the owls in for giving. It is really sturdy and comes with an insert that divides the box into twelve compartments and each one fits a owl perfectly! ;)

I created a video sharing how I created the owls so you can check that out below (or on YouTube) if you want to see how I created them.



Thanks for stopping by today!

MFT December Release Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the My Favorite Things December release countdown! For the next five days we'll be sharing projects using all of the new products that are coming out for the December MFT release, on Tuesday December 6th at 9pm EST!

For today's card I used the new Wavy Coloring Book background stamp and did some emboss resist so I could create a fun colourful background.

I stamped the background onto a white cardstock panel, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then added aqua, green and pink distress inks to the whole panel using an ink blending tool.

For the sentiment, I diecut the word Kindness from the new Kind & Kindness Die-namics from black card stock and then I stamped the rest of the sentiment with black ink onto a white strip of cardstock.

I finished the card by adhering the panel to a piece of silver glitter cardstock and then added the entire thing to a black card base. I also added some clear sequins for a bit of detail and dimension.

MFT December Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the My Favorite Things December release countdown! For the next five days we'll be sharing projects using all of the new products that are coming out for the December MFT release, on Tuesday December 6th at 9pm EST!

For today's card I used the new Star Grid Cover-Up Die-namics along with the large flower from the new Doodle Blossoms stamp set to create a textured background with a pop of colour.

I love the look on this cover-up design diecut from white and layered onto a Grout Gray card base. Just enough difference in the white and grey to show the difference between the two but still soft and subtle.

I decided to go opposite with the focal part of the card and use bright, bold colours! I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock, coloured them in with Copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I created the sentiment with the new Kind Words stamp set (coming soon!) onto a strip of white cardstock and then I adhered it over the flowers across the card front.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 3 of the MFT December release countdown! All of the new products that we're sharing this week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 10pm EST on Tuesday December 6th!

MFT December Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the My Favorite Things December release countdown! For the next five days we'll be sharing projects using all of the new products that are coming out for the December MFT release, on Tuesday December 6th at 9pm EST!

For today's card I used the new Our Story stamp set (and coordinating dies) along with the Fireplace Die-namics to create this adorable, cozy scene. I love the images in this new stamp set and can't wait to create more with it!

To create the brick detail on the fireplace I used the English Brick Wall stencil and added Grout Gray ink with an ink blending tool onto the diecut fireplace. I then added it to a white cardstock panel annd created my scene around it.

I stamped, coloured and cut out all of the images that I wanted to use and I used a Copic marker to colour in the floor area on the panel before adhering all of the pieces.

For the books and plant that I added to the fireplace, I stamped out the bookshelf image and just cut off the shelf part so it would look like they were sitting on the mantel. I adhered everything else direct onto the card except the girl in the chair which I added with foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 4 of the MFT December release countdown! All of the new products that we're sharing this week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 10pm EST on Tuesday December 6th!
