MFT | March Release Rewind

Hello! Today I have a couple more cards to share that use products from the My Favorite Things March release. This release is so awesome for pet lovers... there are so many great products to make a ton of different pet themed cards!

For my first card I used the adorable I Knead You stamp set from Birdie Brown that features some really cute cat images and sentiments. I decided to keep my design clean and simple and keep the focus on the colourd cat image.

I stamped the little shelf and the backwards cat - I thought he went perfectly with the sentiment lol! and then coloured them in with Copic markers. I cut apart the sentiment so I could layer it underneath my image, and stamped it in black ink.

I cut the image out when I was done with the stitched panel from the Blueprints 23 die-namics and layered it onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I then heat embossed the Paw Print background onto my white card base using silver pearl embossing powder. I love the slight shimmer and tone on tone colour. 

I completed the card by adding the panel to the card base and stamping on a few hearts using my favourite new ink, Summer Splash! ;)

For my second card, I used the Pet Accents die-namics to create a love card with a pet theme! ;) I first used the Paw Prints stencil and added white embossing paste to a white piece of cardstock and let it dry. Once it was dry, I diecut it with a heart die and adhered it to a kraft piece of cardstock. I then cut out the whole thing with the stitched panel from the Blueprints 23 die-namics.

I diecut a second smaller heart from red cardstock and adhered it that on the bottom right of the larger heart, with foam adhesive for some added dimension. I stamped some random red and kraft coloured hearts around the diecut ones and added some clear glitter to all of them.

Once I had all of the hearts done, I adhered the kraft piece to a white card base and added a black strip of cardstock to the left side to make the white heart more prominent on the card front. I completed the card by stamping on the sentiment with black ink.

MFT March Release | New Product Launch

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things new product launch!! All of the new products we've been sharing all week are officially available in the MFT store now! I can't wait to see what's on everyone's must have list! ;)

I have two cards to share tonight that feature the new Television die-namics and Stay Tuned stamp set. Every single month I am so excited to see what new products Laina has coming out... it's like she lives in my head and knows all of the fun things I would love to see in products. And her designs are always perfection! This month is no exception! ;)

I love TV and movies so I was super excited to play with the TV and coordinating stamp set. I will definitely get a lot of use out of these for sure! ;)

My first card shares my excitement that one of my favourite shows (and characters) of all time, is returning to TV for a special season in 2016 to celebrate it's 25th anniversary! You know I had to actually put a tv show in that awesome TV die lol! ;)

I created the TV with brown and black cardstock to make it look older since the show is almost 25 years old. I found a photo with the opening image from the show, printed it to fit in the TV and cut it out with the die. I assembled the TV and then adhered it to the car front with foam adhesive.

I layered the card front with white cardstock and vellum and also stamped one of the panels with the Typewriter Text background and Grout Gray ink for a little more detail on the card.

The card is a little darker and muted than I usually like, but I feel like it works for the theme of this card since the show was kind of dark and muted lol! ;) I stamped the 'Breaking News...' sentiment directly underneath the TV on the vellum so it would blend a bit into the background. I really wanted the focus of the card to be the TV. ;)

For the inside, I added a printed sentiment and then stamped directly on top of it with the fuzzy screen stamp from the Stay Tuned stamp set. 

It's the perfect card for one of my Twin Peaks loving friends lol!! I am really really excited to see Special Agent Dale Cooper on my TV screen again! ;)

For my second card I decided to create a card with a lot of colour since the first one had very little colour. I cut my TV out of grey and black cardstock and used silver foil paper to create the antenna.

Once I had the TV assembled, I added strips of coloured cardstock to the inside to create the test pattern that used to show up on TV's all the time. I just googled the test image so I knew what order to put the coloured bars in.

Once I had it all glued down, I adhered the TV to the white diecut panel with foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment from the Stay Tuned stamp set under the TV and the finished panel to a piece of Limelight cardstock cut slightly larger. I adhered that to a white card base with foam adhesive to complete the card. ;)

Thanks so much for hanging out all week while we shared the newest products and projects! I can't wait to see what everyone creates with the new stamps, dies, stencils and the amazing new ink and card stock colours! ;)

MFT March Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things March release countdown! Today's product reveal includes some really great pet themed die-namics and a paw print stencil! ;) 

For today's card I used the new Dog House die-namics and paired it with one of the dog images from the You Make My Tail Wag stamp set to create a fun and colourful card design. I love the stitched panel in the Blueprints 23 die-namics to create scenes... it's long enough to go from each edge of a card length wise and has the great stitching detail on each side. Works perfect! ;)

I cut the panel out of Sno Cone cardstock and then I added some stamping with the same colour ink using the Burlap background stamp. The tone on tone stamping adds a little detail to the sky so it looks a little more dimensional. 

I then diecut the same panel from Sour Apple cardstock and Smooth White cardstock before cutting them out with the Stitched Speech Bubble Edges and the Stitched Snow Drifts die-namics. I adhered them all to the panel and stamped on the sentiment with black ink.

I cut out and assembled the dog house and adhered it onto my scene. I completed the card by stamping one of the puppy images onto white cardstock and colouring it in with Copic markers. I decided to fussy cut him rather than use scissors, so I wouldn't have the white edge around the image.

I adhered the dog house onto a second piece of red cardstock with foam adhesive for some dimension and to make it look like the inside of the dog house. I love that it looks like he's laying with his head hanging out, resting on the grass! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by for day 1 of the MFT March Release countdown! The new release products will officially be available on the My Favorite Things website tonight at 10pm EST!
