We meet again! Woot! 🙂
Got a few cards to share with you today. And, yes, shocker! 😉 I’m again using some of the cool new products that My Favorite Things will debut on Feb. 3rd. (Ooh! So, so close!)
On your mark. Get set. Go.
This is card #1.
So I used the new Ride the Wave Die-namics to make those waves. They are totally fun. You get five dies in the set and they make these awesome waves that you can use a little bit of… or a whole lot of.
I stamped the words and the polka dots (on the yellow wave) with the help of the Wavy Greetings stamp set.
One thing I learned while using the Ride the Wave Die-namics is it was helpful to number them on the back so I could remember what dies fit together to make wavy element like I did for my first card.
I also put a little bit of washi tape on them, all toward the bottom.
And this is card #2.
Rather than making a bunch of waves that lined up, I threw caution to the wind and randomly adhered waves to my card. You might say I channeled my inner freestyle design loving ways. 😉
I once again used the Wavy Greetings stamp set to stamp on the waves. I used it for the words and the stars.
Also, the little star I stamped in the middle of the die-cut stars was from the stamp set.
Here’s a list of MFT products I used to make these cards:
And be sure to swing by the MFT blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. I’ll be back again tomorrow. (<—- Imagine that with an Arnold voice.)
I’m back with a couple more cards made with some of the fun new stuff My Favorite Things will be debut on Feb. 3rd.
Shall we get started? 😉
OK. You win. Hee!
I had a good time playing with a couple new products for this one: the MP3 Player Die-namics; the Equalizer Stencil and the Keep on Rockin’ stamp set. I stenciled the equalizer pattern onto the background paper by setting the stencil down and then just sponging on some Lemon Drop ink with a plain old cosmetic sponge. Easy peasy.
This one might seem a little familiar. I used some of the same products to make it.
One of the fun things about the MP3 Player Die-namics is they come with a baby player and a big player. I thought it would be fun to bring them together so that’s what I did for this card: one baby player and one big player. 🙂
And once again I used the Equalizer stencil to sponge an ink pattern on the background paper. It was kinda fun to go girly girl with this card and use a soft shade of pink rather than the bright bold colors I am so fond of.
So here is a list of supplies from MFT I used to make these cards:
And that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to hit the MFT blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today.
Hope to see you again tomorrow.
It’s time yet again for another countdown toward another awesome release from My Favorite Things.
And I’m geeked to share a couple cards with you today that I made with some of the new products. So let’s do this.
Meet card #1.
The tulips and words are from the new Spring Tulips stamp set, while the rectangle frame (and white rectangle) were cut with the new Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics. They, along with all the rest of the new things, arrive on Feb. 3rd at My Favorite Things.
I created an inside of the card, trying to mimic slightly the look of the card front.
This time, I used a different tulip and saying from the Spring Tulips stamp set.
And here’s another card I made with the Spring Tulips stamp set and Stitched Frames Die-namics.
I used the coordinating Spring Tulips Die-namics to cut out the flower. And then (… hold your breath, friends..) I used markers to color the flower in! (Woohoo! I used markers! YAY!)
To make the flower pop, I once again used foam adhesive to stick it on my card.
Here are the MFT supplies I used to make these cards:
Be sure to check out the MFT blog to get more sneak peeks of the new products (and to see who else from the design team is sharing ideas today)!
I hope to see you again tomorrow!
Ever have an idea and just want to run with it? That’s the story of today’s card.
It all started because I was playing around with paint splatter for fun and made this background. And then I got to thinking about my stash of Essentials by Ellen dies and stamps… and then kinda started thinking I could make a Valentine’s card.
So I just kinda started grabbed things. Challenged myself. And this is what I came up with.
I think it’s pretty fun! I mean, how often do you see a pink stag? Yep. Not often. 😉
I’ll be back again later, friends. Have a great day!
Hooray! It’s time for another Creative Challenge with the My Favorite Things Design Team.
The challenge this time is all about hearts…. lots and lots of glorious hearts. Hearts (and stars & circles) are pretty my favorite design elements so, of course, I had to get in on it. So yeah. I’ve got a couple cards to share with you.
This is No. 1.
Just plain love the Pierced Heart STAX Die-namics so I totally whipped them out for this card (and for the next two you’ll see). 😉 Look really close and you’ll see I stacked a couple hearts on top of each other here.
My old friend, the Blueprints 20 Die-namics, came in super handy for cutting the rectangle and scalloped rectangle background panels the hearts are mounted on.
I wanted to try something different here. I stamped brushstrokes this time with the Jumbo Abstract Art stamp set and set the hearts on top of them. To give them a little bit of pop, I adhered them with foam dots.
I dig how they look kinda like they are just floating there.
For this guy, I cut a bunch of hearts and then kinda just layered them together, allowing a little bit of all the hearts to show.
It’s a different look. I’m excited to try it with a different shape at some point.
So that’s what I have for you today.
Here’s a list of MFT products I used to make these cards:
Be sure to hit the MFT blog to find out who else from the design team is sharing projects today. I think you are going to “heart” what they cooked up. (Hee!)
See you again soon. Thanks for swinging by, guys!
I’m squeaking in with a few more cards made with the January release from My Favorite Things.
On your mark. Get set. GO!
So this is card #1. I created the heart panel by sponging Bubblegum ink through the Hearts Background Stencil.
The words are from the new I Love You More stamp set, while the hearts were cut with the Pierced Heart STAX Die-namics. Oh, and that small heart with the pattern? Yep. I stamped the pattern on it with the Damask Background stamp.
And here’s card #2.
I once again used that Damask Background stamp set.
Again, those Pierced Heart STAX Die-namics made an appearance again. This time, I die-cut them from the same pink cardstock and then stacked them up. I sorta kinda (a whole lotta) dig that layered look.
The words are from the I Love You More stamp set.
I also used the Sequins Die-namics, Blueprints 20 Die-namics and Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics.
So that’s what I have. To see more projects made with the new release, visit the MFT Blog. Lots of other design teamers are sharing projects today.
Hooray! January’s new release from My Favorite Things is now available.
I’m totally geeked to share with you a couple cards I made with new Level Up stamp set and Game Controller Die-namics (and a few other goodies from the new release).
This is card #1.
The new Game Controller Die-namics are so, so fun. Rather than trying to make a controller that looked just like one one would use, I just kind of ran with it and made all the buttons white. Hey, it works!
And then I added a couple hearts cut with the Heart Puzzle Die-namics. And those stamped words? They are from the Level Up stamp set.
I added a few more stamped words and heart to the inside of the card.
And this is card #2.
Again, I just ran with it. This time, I cut the controller from white cardstock and then created the buttons from red cardstock.
I created the heart pattern on the pink panel by sponging ink through the Staggered Hearts stencil. Easy peasy, people. EASY!
I mimicked the pink panel for the inside of the card. I just stamped a different phrase from the Level Up stamp set.
Be sure to hit the MFT blog for links to more awesome posts from the design team today.
It’s so, so, so close to January’s release from My Favorite Things.
I’ve got two more cards to share with you today that I made with some of the new products.
This first card uses the Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up Die-namics (arrives on 1/6 at MFT with the rest of the January release). That die is probably one of my favorite products from the release. You get these beautiful steel die and and it has all these heart shapes. That, in itself, is really cool, but then cut a piece of paper with it and fold the hearts. You get this cool 3-D effect.
I just love it!
For this card, I cut used the die to cut two panels – one from red cardstock and one from pink cardstock. And then I sliced a little of the pink panel off and adhered it to the red panel to make this card.
The sentiment is from the new Smitten With You stamp set. I’ve gotten quite a bit of mileage out of this set as I’ve worked on projects with this new release. It’s got so many great phrase combinations in it. You know me. Anything with mix and match possibilities makes this girl super happy!
And this second card also uses the new Smitten with You stamp set. I also used the new Heart Puzzle Die-namics dies on it.
I also used the Blueprints 20 Die-namics and Sequins Die-namics to cut some of the elements for it.
So that’s I have today. Be sure to check out the MFT blog for more inspiration and release sneak peekage.
And, by the way, all the new stuff lands at MFT on the 6th.
We meet again, friends!
It’s another day. It’s another day closer to January release goodness from My Favorite Things.
Let’s do this.
I was up to my mixing and matching ways here!
I created the sentiment by mixing together the new Straight to the Heart Die-namics with the new I Love You More stamp set.
And then things got crazier! I added other things to the equation: the Tiny Hearts Background stamp (which arrives at MFT on 1/6); the Sequins Die-namics; the Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics.
I think it all turned out pretty dang cool.
And this card #2.
To make the little heart arrow, I cut the arrow twice with the Straight to the Heart Die-namics. I cut on in half and adhered it on the top and got what you see!
Kinda fun, huh?
So here’s a list of MFT supplies I used to make these cards:
Be sure to check out the MFT blog for more inspiration and release sneak peeks! It’s a good one, you guys. So good!
See you all again tomorrow.
