MFT: New Product Launch

And we have liftoff!

New Product Launch

The September release from My Favorite Things is available now. (<—– And the crowd goes wild!!!)

Go, go, go! But come back, k? I’d be … like… sad and all… if you didn’t. :)

To celebrate, I’ve got a couple more projects to share with you that I made with the new stuff (and more). Each of these projects, in particular, uses the new Label Maker stamp set and Label Tape Die-namics in different ways!

Meet card #1.

Miss You Houses by Teri

For this one, I played it safe by creating a little scene with the London Mouse stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). And then I added the sentiment (created with Label Maker and Label Tape Die-namics).

Miss You Houses by Teri

The little hearts came from the Tag Builder Blueprints 3. The heart was just the right size for my little scene.

And meet card #2.

Hello Friend Retro by Teri

I wanted to do something really different here!

Before I broke apart the Label Tape Die-namics, I left them connected with the wires and cut them a few times out of white cardstock. I thought the connected lines of the die made a cool pattern for a background. And then I got all fussy, filling up the pattern with different colors of “labels.”

Hello Friend Retro by Teri

The hello word was cut with the Happy Hellos Die-namics. I use them a lot… maybe even a little obsessively. ;)

I cut the word three times, layered the words together and then added a “friend” label.

And meet card #3.

Hi There New York by Teri

This time, I created a sentiment again by mixing together the Label Maker stamp set (and Label Tape Die-namics) with a word from the Happy Hellos Die-namics.

Hi There New York by Teri

The skyline was cut with the new New York Skyline Die-namics. So, so cool! Before I adhered the skyline down and onto my card, I randomly stamped circles with round sponges onto the card. I think it made for a fun background.

So that’s what I have for you. Be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today.  (Hint, hint: I peeked. Really, really cool stuff to see!)

MFT Countdown: 1

Hello, hello!

We meet one more time, friends!

NewReleaseCountdown_Day1

And you guessed it! I’ve got  a couple more projects to share with that I whipped together with products from the September release from My Favorite Things. Let’s do this.

Meet card #1.

Miss You NYC by Teri

This was a fun one! I used the new New York Skyline Die-namics to cut a silhouette of the NYC skyline from black cardstock. This little panel of cardstock is what I had left. I thought it would look cool on a card so… I just plain ran with it.

Miss You NYC by Teri

The little graffiti pattern peeking out from behind was stamped with the Abstract Art stamp set from My Favorite Things. It’s just a fun set that really useful when you want to give something the artsy look.

And meet card #2.

Hello There London by Teri

I just had fun here by creating a little scene with the new London Mouse stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). Notice: There’s no mouse in my scene. ;) It just kinda happened that way. :)

The vehicles and Big Ben (and stars) are all from the stamp set.

Hello There London by Teri

By the way, if you look really close, you’ll see a blue circle pattern on the Lush Lagoon cardstock. I sponged additional Lush Lagoon ink on the cardstock and then stamped on top with the Snowfall Background stamp. I just kinda like the way the circles on that stamp are spaced. They are unexpected. Makes for a nice night scene.

Ok. So that, my friends, is what I have for you today.

Be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see what else the design team is sharing today.  (Hee hee! Don’t be sad. I’ll be back tomorrow.  Pinky swear.)

And for links to the MFT products I used, check out the list below. Links to the newest products will work once the September release is made live at 10 p.m. EST on Tuesday.

MFT Countdown: 2

Hi all!

This is going to be the world’s fastest post.

Like super fast.

NewReleaseCountdown_Day2

Because I’m back. I’m fired up. And I’ve got a couple more cards to share with that I whipped up with some of the new stamps and dies (and stencils too) from My Favorite Things. Check it.

Meet card #1.

Hello Friend Circles by Teri

Did a little stenciling and inking for this one. Created the pattern on the background paper with the new Concentric Circle Grid Stencil.

I simply set the circle onto white cardstock and then sponged ink over it. Then I moved it and changed out to another ink pad. I repeated that process until I completely covered the paper with ink.

Hello Friend Circles by Teri

I cut that circle with the Double Stitched Circle STAX. I created the phrase by mixing together a word die-cut with the Happy Hellos Die-namics and a stamped word created with the new Label Maker stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics).

Meet card #2.

Soda-lighted by Teri

Just having fun with this one. I created all those faux bottlecaps with the Bottle Caps Die-namics and new Soda Pop stamp set. Rather than go too crazy, I decided to just put them in a circle to draw attention to the sentiment.

Sodalighted by Teri

The sentiment was created by pairing together the new Soda Pop stamp set with the Label Maker stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). It’s always a win in my book when you can mix different products together quite easily. I love that.

So that’s what I have for you today.

MFT Countdown: 3

Hello, hello!

We meet again! Guess what? We’re still counting down the September release from My Favorite Things.

NewReleaseCountdown_Day3

On your mark. Get set. Go,

Please give it up for card #1.

Thinking of You by Teri

Ta-daaaaa! :)

So this bad boy was a lot of a fun to make. I once again whipped out the new Stitched Cover-Up Companion – Vertical to build the card around it. I put some Steel Grey cardstock and striped paper from the Dots and Stripes Neutral Paper Pack in the openings.

Thinking of You by Teri

The phrase was created with the new Label Maker stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). And the bloom-thingys? They were made with the new Fall Florals stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). There’s just something about the modern feel of them that draws me to them.

And meet card #2.

Hello Friend Stars by Teri

This guy is a tad bit more on the fun and cut side.

I cut the star blocks and stars with the new Star Strips Die-namics. I filled in some of the openings on the strips with stars and sequins (cut with my old friend, the Sequins Die-namics).

Hello Friend Stars by Teri

MFT Countdown: 4

Hi all!

Another day. Another 24 hours closer to the September release from My Favorite Things.

NewReleaseCountdown_Day4

And you guessed it! I’m back with a couple more projects made with the new stuff.

Please give it up for card #1.

Hello You by Teri

This was a lot of fun. I die-cut skyline with the Paris Skyline Die-namics from watercolor paper. And then I went for the dip dye look, brushing watercolors onto the tops of the buildings.

Hello You Paris by Teri

If you look really close, you’ll see I created my own background paper with the blue cardstock by stamping the new Distressed Stripes Background stamp pattern onto it with blue ink.

And please meet card #2.

Wishing You Mouse by Teri

Yes. It’s so different from that last card! :)

The new Harvest Mouse stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics) is so, so cute! I just had to make a card with the stamps and dies. The mouse, bucket of apples and words are all from the stamp set.

Wishing You Mouse by Teri

I colored the mouse in with pencils and then used odorless mineral spirits to blend the color. It’s a coloring technique that I swear has been around forever and ever, but I still love it. It is so forgiving.

Once again, be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today.

And check out the list below to see what products from My Favorites Things that I used to make these cards. The links to the new stuff will work after the new release is made live at 10 p.m. EST on Sept. 1st.

MFT Countdown: 5

Hi all!

It’s that time again! It’s time to start counting down to another awesome release from My Favorite Things. (Woohoo!)

NewReleaseCountdown_Day5

And I’m pretty excited to share with you a couple things I made with some of the new stuff.

Meet card #1.

Thank You Really by Teri

I built this card around the new Stitched Cover-Up Companion – Vertical. I cut it once from white cardstock and then I stamped the pattern (from the new Etched Flower Background stamp) onto pink and orange cardstocks. And then I used the Cover-Up to cut the rectangles. So I did just some basic stamping, but think how cool it would be add a little color with some pens or pencils to those flower lines. I might try that next time I pull the stamp out.

Thank You Really by Teri

And meet card #2.

You Made My Day by Teri

I once again used the Stitched Cover-Up Companion – Vertical to make this card. This time I flipped it horizontally and used it just as a design element.

You Made My Day by Teri

That white rectangle you see? It was cut with the Cover-Up. Again, I just flipped it… being the rebel I am and all. ;)

The flower, vine thingy-bobbers were cut and stamped with the Fall Florals stamp set (and coordinating Die-namics). I was going for a more modern look and I felt like they worked perfectly for this project.

Alright. So that’s what I have for you.

Check out the list below to see what supplies I used from My Favorite Things to make these cards. A word of caution: The links to the new stuff will work once the release goes live at 10 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Sept. 1st.

And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today!  Be back again tomorrow, guys! Thanks, as always, for swinging by.

Happy Hanukkah card by Teri

I used the new Kibitzing Icons dies with the new Kibitzing Two stamp set to stamp the menorah and the sentiment.

The background was created by brushing color with a couple Clean Color markers onto a stamping block, spritzing the color with water and rubbing the block onto watercolor paper.

Happy Hanukkah card by Teri

To make the menorah stand out, I adhered it to the card with foam adhesive. I colored it in with a silver pencil and then used a Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle to it. It’s subtle, but I think it’s sure pretty.

OK, that’s what I have. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon.
