MFT February Card Kit | Beautiful Butterflies

Hello! Welcome to day one of the countdown to the newest card kit from My Favorite Things called Beautiful Butterflies! This month's kit is absolutely gorgeous and includes two stamps sets, a die set, black embossing powder, a Versamark ink cube, two sheets of translucent vellum and a beautiful assortment of cardstock.

For my card today I used the detail layer stamp of one of the butterflies (all of the butterflies have multiple stamps that layer together) and embossed 3 black butterflies onto a watercolor panel using the black embossing powder from the kit.
Once I had the butterflies embossed, I did a fun inky technique where I added colour over top by scribbling onto a plastic sheet with Tombow Dual Brush markers and then I added some water with the colour. I then flipped the plastic sheet over onto the embossed panel and pushed the ink onto it with my fingers. I love the random watercolor look you get every time you do this technique! ;)

I decided to leave the front without a sentiment and instead, stamped it on the inside with black ink. I love the artistic watercolor look on the front and didn't want to cover any of it up with a sentiment strip.

You can see how I created this card in this weeks episode of MFTv on the MFT YouTube channel (linked in my blog sidebar).

MFT Release Replay | February 2017

Hello! It's been a week since the newest release went live from MFT Stamps and today the design team is revisiting all of the new products and sharing more fun ways to use them! It's so exciting to see everyone receiving their new goodies and creating! ;)

For today's card, I used the new Sketched Blooms 2 to create a simple, but colourful card. I love this stamp set and the endless floral designs you can create with it!
I stamped all of the leaves and flowers using various colours of rich, bold inks. I love the yellow, blue, orange and greens together... they blend and overlap so nicely together. Once I had all of the flowers stamped and I was happy with the design, I used the little tiny flower stamp and added some yellow and orange flowers mixed in with the larger ones.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lot's of Hugs stamp set onto white cardstock, cut it into a strip and adhered it onto the stamped panel at the bottom over the flower stems. I then adhered the finished panel to a Grout Gray card base.

Make sure to head over to the MFT Stamps blog to see what the rest of the design team created with the February release. ;)

MFT February 2017 Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things February release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the February 2017 release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products.

Today's card used the new Birdhouses Die-namics (this months free with $60) along with the new Denim stamp to create a textured background.
To create the background, I added ink to a white cardstock panel and then I spritzed the entire stamp with water. The more water you add, the more saturated your cardstock will become and it my blur the detail from the stamp. Because Distress ink reacts with water, the stamp design (covered with water) lifts the colour off the cardstock and leaves you with the detail of the stamp.

Once I had the background done, I diecut the little birdhouses 3 times each from white cardstock and layered them on top of one another. I then diecut them from wood paper and added that as the top layer to make them look more realistic.

This is the card I created for this week's episode of MFTv so if you want to see how I created it, you can check it out on the MFT YouTube channel. ;)

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 of the February release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 9pm EST tonight!

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

MFT February 2017 Release Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things February release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the February 2017 release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products.

If you are a wine lover, you are going to love all of the great products being revealed today! For my card I used the new Wine Service and Cheers Die-namics to create my scene.
I die cut the wine bottle, label, cork and two glasses from white cardstock and then I masked off the areas that I didn't want to have ink. I added Aged Mahogany Distress Inks to the bottle and glasses to mimic red wine and then I added some water to distress them.

I used grey ink for the label and the cork and distressed them with water as well. To create the background panel I used Peacock Feathers Distress ink and then I cut the panel out with the largest Wonky Rectangles Die-namics.

To create the sentiment, I diecut the word Cheers 4 times from white cardstock and then layered them on top of one another with liquid adhesive to give it more dimension. I adhered all of diecut pieces onto the panel and then I added it to a Grout Gray card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 2 of the February release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 9pm EST on February 7, 2017.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas from the creative team and giveaways! See you tomorrow for more countdown fun! ;)
