It’s another day of September Release countdown action with My Favorite Things.
So let’s do this! :)
So meet card #1.
Some of my most (absolute most) FAVORITE products from the September release (which lands at MFT on 9/16) are the two new jar-themed Die-namics sets – the Mason Jar Mug Die-namics and the Mason Jar Die-namics. These dies can be used on their own or mixed together. I just love that kind of versatility!
For this card, I used a few dies from each of the two sets. The hearts came from one set, while the mug, ice cubes, lemon , straw and label came from another. Really, love it when you can mix things together.
It’s a little hard to tell here, but I actually die-cut the mug three times (twice from white and yellow cardstocks and once from a transparency) and then layered things together.
How did I do the lemon? Well, I die-cut the pieces from the same Lemon Drop cardstock. To make the rim a little darker, I just brushed a yellow marker over it.
Up for another card? Good because here is card #2. (Wink!)
Again, I did a little mix and matching here and used both the Mason Jar and Mason Jar Mug Die-namics sets to create these guys.
The whole dip color look with Mason Jars is super hot with DIY folks (see an example here and another here) so I thought I’d try the look in paper form.
I die-cut the three jars, covered up part of them with a sticky note and then sponged on some black ink. I think it turned out pretty cool.
And how about one more card?
Here’s card #3.
I decided to do the shaker thing. I die-cut the jar from a panel of white cardstock. I placed a transparency under the opening and then I die-cut the lid. I adhered it right onto the transparency.
What you don’t see? There’s a lot (… no make that “a whole STINKIN’ lot) of foam tape on the backside of the panel, around the jar. I created the confetti by cutting a ton of little hearts and circles with a couple dies from the Mason Jar Die-namics set.
And what about those stamped words on this card (and the other two)? Welp. They, too, are from MFT. I stamped them with the new Mason Jar Labels stamp set.
I thought all of these turned out pretty fun. I actually had to hold myself back from not making another 4, 5, 10 cards with these dies to share with you today. They are so stinking fun! ;)
Anyway, here’s a complete list of the MFT products I used to make the cards today:
