I’m so pumped and so honored to be joining the folks from My Favorite Things as a guest designer in June.
(And you guys want to know a secret? I totally cried when they asked a few months ago. Such an honor. I’ve admired MFT for years. They have top-notch, high quality products and just plain good designs. Such, such an honor to get to play with their team this month!)
So the long and the short of it is consider yourselves warned. You are going to be seeing some posts of the next few days, featuring some of MFT new products for June. And, gosh golly, I’m excited to share what I’ve made with you!
So I’ve got a couple projects to show you today. They both use MFT’s new Pierced Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics and the Together Forever stamp set.
Meet card #1.
I die-cut all those flags using the new Die-namics set.
This card is really the result of messing around and discovering that I could make a fun little pattern with the flags.
And here is card #2.
It’s kinda the same idea, but it’s little different twist. I thought it looked pretty cool stacking the different flags together.
You might notice some of the flags on these two cards are open. I achieved that look by doing some double-cutting.
I simply placed a larger die onto a piece of cardstock and then placed a smaller one inside it. To keep them in place as I ran them through my die-cutting machine, I slapped on a little washi tape.
The end result was something like this.
I thought it was a pretty cool look! And I must admit it was pretty addicting to cut the flags this way. I ended up with a whole pile of them to use on future projects… hee!

Be back again tomorrow.
