MFT Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit Release!

Hello and welcome to the release party for the September My Favorite Things card kit called Snowflake Sparkle! This kit is packed full of amazing products including two stamp sets, 2 Die-namics, 4 ink cubes, cardstock and 3 sheets of glitter paper! It's snow fun!! ;) 

For my card tonight, I want a little bolder in my design and used the Tropical Teal cardstock and ink along with some of the other colours from the kit.

I stamped the same snowflake pattern in the two opposite corners of my white cardstock panel with the same colours and then I diecut the sentiment using the Peaceful Words Die-namics from the kit from the green glitter paper.

I adhered the sentiment diagonal to fit better between the snowflake stamping and I used the smallest little snowflake in the stamp set and stamped a black center to each of the snowflakes.

I added the diecut panel to a green glitter mat that I diecut with a scalloped rectangle die and then I adhered the entire piece to a Tropical Teal card base. I completed the card by adding some charcoal sequins to the centers of the snowflakes with some silver stickles in the center.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas using this kit from the creative team. The kit is now available for purchase here in the MFT online store.

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

MFT Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit | Day 1

Hello and welcome to the 2nd day of the My Favorite Things countdown to the Snowflake Sparkle card kit. This kit is so sparkly and elegant and makes me giddy for the snow to start flying... I know I'm in a minority there lol!!

For today's card I white heat embossed three of the large snowflakes onto a piece of white cardstock and then I used the Sour Apple, Tropical Teal and Cornflower inks from the kit to add colour behind each of the snowflakes using an ink blending tool.

I concentrated most of the colour in the center of the snowflakes and then I let it fade out as I went out from the snowflake making sure to let all of the three colours blend together. Once I had the colour applied I added some spritzes of water onto the panel and dabbed it off with a paper towel. This gave the panel a distressed look and I really love the final result.

Once I was done all the inking, I added the sentiment with Black Licorice dye ink and I diecut the panel with a scalloped edge rectangle die. I adhered the panel to a piece of the silver glitter cardstock and then added it to a green card base. I love the mix of the green with the blues... my favourite colour combination! ;)

The Snowflake Sparkle card kit will officially be available for purchase tonight at 10pm EST! I'll be back then with another card to share using this amazing kit! Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)

MFT Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the release countdown for the My Favorite Things September card kit Snowflake Sparkle! This kit is jam packed full of amazing winter themed items to make holiday crafting fun and sparkly!! ;) ;)

For today's post I created a snowflake covered card that features clear embossing on glitter paper to give my snowflakes a little extra detail and definition.

I diecut all of the snowflakes from the glitter paper in the kit and then I stamped the coordinating snowflakes on top with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. 

I stamped the sentiment with the Cornflower ink from the kit and then I adhered all of the snowflakes around it. I added some additional detail by stamping the cluster of dots with the green ink in the open areas between the snowflakes.

You can see how I created this card in today's episode of MFTv on the MFT youtube channel.

MFT September Release Replay

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things release replay for the September release. We're revisiting the products from the September release and creating new projects showcasing the great new products.

For my card I used the new Tea Party Die-namics and Cup of Tea stamp set to create a card featuring a stack of teacups in front of a stenciled brick background.

I diecut the tea cups from white cardstock and added Distress inks to them. I then added some spritzes of water and dabbed it off with a paper towel to give them a distressed look. I also diecut a heart and a teabag from white cardstock and added distress ink to those as well.

I added the teabag to the cups with foam adhesive and tied a silver string on it and then adhered the heart directly onto the bottom cup.

I added some grey brick detail with a stencil to the background and added a strip of black & white patterned paper along with a strip of silver sparkle cardstock to the right side of the card. I completed the card with some clear sequins around the stacked cups.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the creative team created for this months release replay. Thanks for stopping by!

MFT September Release | New Product Launch

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things new product launch for the September release. We've been sharing cards and projects all week using the new products and everything is officially available in the MFT online store! 

For my card tonight, I used the new Circle Spinner Channels Die-namics along with the Single Stitch Line Square Frames die-namics and created a fun interactive scene.
I used the smallest channel die and created a little area in the scene for an acorn to be falling from the tree. I thought it paired really well with the adorable squirrel critter from the Harvest Buddies stamp set.

I created the background with green and blue distress inks and just like in one of the other cards I created for this release, I added the frame on top and left the background slightly larger so you could see it both on the outside and the inside of the frame.


I added my stamped images once I had the falling acorn in place. I love how it looks like the squirrel is looking up at the tree and the acorn. ;)

Thank you so much for joining me all week for the MFT September release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the design team created for the launch. You can also comment for a chance to win GC's to the MFT online store. Happy shopping!! ;)

MFT September Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things September release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the September release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products. 

For my card today I'm sharing a card that I created for this week's episode of MFTv. It uses the new Interactive Birthday Cake die which is now available for individual purchase, to create a fall themed cake on my card! ;)


I love the interactive cake die and really wanted to create something fall themed with it. It lets you be a cake decorator with paper and glue, and since I don't really like to cook and bake IRL, this is the next best thing lol! ;)

I diecut the main cake images from white cardstock and added some earthy tone coloured Distress inks to both pieces creating an ombre effect. I then added some water droplets and dabbed them off with a paper towel to give them a distressed look. I then assembled the cake so the top later would slide up from behind the bottom layer.


I added the scallop details for the cake using the Trail Mix paper pack and tehn I added a bunch of stamped images to dress up the cake. I used new stamps from this release including Bold Blooms, Harvest Buddies, Fall Friends and Happy Hedgehogs. I loved mixing and matching all the images for the decorations on the cake.

I completed the card by stamping the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and adhering it under the cake, and then I added some clear sequins in the open area above and below the cake. I also added clear glitter to all of the leaves, acorns and mushrooms. You can see the video sharing how I created the card on the MFT YouTube channel (link in my blog sidebar).

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 of the September release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store tonight at 10pm EST!

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas from the creative team and giveaways! ;)

MFT September Release Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things September release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the September release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products. 

For my card today, I used the new Harvest Buddies stamp set with a sentiment from the Fall Friends stamp set to create a fun, cute design featuring some of the critters from the set.
I stamped the racoon critters on white cardstock with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and coloured them in with Copic markers. I diecut them with the coordinating die (along with the branch and an extra leaf) and I adhered them onto my design.

I added some detail under the scene by adding some light blue ink with the Concentric Circle Grid stencil and then I diecut the entire panel with a stitched rectangle die.

I completed the card by stamping the sentiment at the bottom of the panel and adhering it to a Limelight card card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 2 of the September release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 10pm EST on September 6, 2016.
