MFT September Release Countdown Day 3



Hello again!

I am back for day 3 of the My Favorite Things Release Countdown! Today I am  featuring the adorable new Pure Innocence Thankful Friend Stamp set and matching Die-namics along with the fun new Star Strips Die-namics!

Be sure to check out the My Favorite Things Blog to see a full reveal of today's products, and to see what all the other fabulous design team members have done! All of the new products will be available Tuesday, September 1st at 10:00pm EST!




I wanted to create a fall background for her, so I used my Peerless watercolors and tried to create what looked like a tree in all of it's Autumn splendor behind her. I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and mounted this to a smooth white card base. The little girl is colored with Copic markers and adhered with foam tape.



Of course, I had to add just a few tiny white dots with my white gel pen, because that's just what I do :)

My next card is created with the Star Strip Die-namics. This one is so perfect for teenagers, girl or boy!




When I was finished with this, I took it to show my 13 year old daughter and she LOVED it! I knew she would :) I cut the Star Strips out of Bubblegum, Razzle Berry, Steel Grey, and Cement Grey card stocks. I glued them down flat and added the stars from the other colors back into the missing spaces. I added some striped paper at the bottom from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack, and softly sponged a bit of Razzle Berry dye ink along the top before adding my Star die cut. I added the You're and A Labels with foam tape. 



Lastly I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. This is not what I would call a "Kay card" , but I really had fun with it, and loved how it turned out!

And there you have it from Day 3 of the MFT Release Countdown! So much fun stuff coming your way on September 1st at 10:00 pm EST!!

MFT September Release Countdown Day 4



Hello again!

I am back again for day 4 of the My Favorite Things Release Countdown! I can't tell you how much I adore the products we are featuring today! Birdie Brown's new Mon Cheri stamp set is totally adorable!! That little Parisian girl is the cutest thing ever, and wait until you see the cute Boutique Window Die-namic!!


Be sure to check out the My Favorite Things Blog to see a full reveal of today's products, and to see what all the other fabulous design team members have done! All of the new products will be available Tuesday, September 1st at 10:00pm EST!


So now to my projects, the first one featuring the beyond cute stamp set, Mon Cheri!



Look at her! She's darling! I wanted my background to look kind of foggy and rainy, because that is how I think it should look in Paris :) I've actually been, and it was kind of that way most of the time. Anyway, I stamped the Eiffel Tower with Distress Ink and I brushed some blue and purple watercolors over that to make it look kind of foggy and in the distance. The little girl, I colored with Copic markers and she's mounted with foam tape, as well as the light post. The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink onto black licorice card stock and white embossed.




I added a few little white dots with my white gel pen and a few 4mm clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

My next card features the adorable Boutique Window Die-namics!



This was such a fun card to make! For the background, I used Grout Gray card stock and using the English Brick Wall Stencil, I stenciled the stone looking wall. Next, I cut the four squares out with the Boutique Window Die-namics and mounted them over some Sno Cone card stock. I then added the window frame part over that. I created the awning with some smooth white card stock and some Bubble gum card stock. I sponged a little Bubble Gum dye ink on both of them. I attached the awning and the sill at the bottom with foam tape. And because this is a delicious bakery window, I colored the cute little deserts with Copics and stuck them in the open windows. The little cat is also colored with Copics and mounted with foam tape.



You can really see the dimension in the photo! The sweet sentiment at the top, is from the Label Maker Sentiments stamp set and the sentiment at the bottom, along with the kitty, are from the I Knead You stamp set. Lastly, I added a few clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.


And that is all I have for you today!
