MFT: Launch

Hi there!

And we have lift-off! The new release from My Favorite Things is now available. (<—- Hooray! Yay! Woohoo!)


In honor of the big day, I’ve got a couple more projects to share with you today.

Meet card #1.

Happy Happy Birthday by Teri

For this card, I was shooting for a somewhat modern look. I stamped the background paper with the new Balloon Strings Background stamp. I think it’s just a really cool, versatile stamp. Whether you are making a card for a party or just want something other than the same old design, it’s got some cool possibilities to it. I just love how the lines fall. I have a feeling I’ll be using it quite a bit in the future.

Rather than using the new Pierced Square Frames and Pierced Circle Frames Die-namics in a traditional frame sense, I decided to layer a couple frames together and kinda build a cluster around them with the sentiment. I think it turned out pretty fun!

So meet card #2.

I built this one around the new Pop-Up Birthday Die-namics. What makes these new dies so fun is you can add a little pop with them. (Plus, you can even cut them into something and fold up the letters. Check out this post on the MFT Blog for some more examples of them in action.)

I built this card around the Happy Birthday phrase. I cut the words into the white panel and then added the yellow paper (from the new Dots & Stripes Sorbet paper pack) to the top and then a little bit of Coral Prestige card stock below it. I lifted some of the letters just slightly to make them pop.

You can really see that letter pop-age when the card is laying down.

By the way, I also made a clip for this card with the Hip Clips Die-namics. Rather than using it like a clip, I decided just to use it like a embellishment to just decorate the card. Sometimes, I think it’s OK to just to break from the norm and use things in different ways than they are really intended. You know what I mean?

So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see who else is sharing projects today. I  “might” have peeked. There’s really, really, really good stuff. 😉

And you’ll find links below to the MFT products I used on these cards. Thanks for stopping by. Always a pleasure when you do.

  1. I adore dies, but the new cardstock is beautiful…so many wonderful new release items that I will purchase.

  2. You have such a wonderful way of putting together different shapes and colors and making it a beautiful cohesive card. Really like this one.

  3. More wonderful cards!! Loved your cards from this week. These make perfect boy and girl birthday cards with the color combos you used.

  4. Adorable creations! I love the new string background. It’s subtle on colored card stock, but adds the perfect touch!

  5. Your cards look great and I agree it’s cool to try using tools and techniques in a way they were not originally intended. Well done.

  6. Love the pop-up of the lettering.
    The first card has a Texas feel to it. Wonderful
    Thanks for sharing some great cards.

  7. Love the bold colors and circle and square frames combos of the first happy card. The second is dramatic in it’s own way. You showed another way to use the clip flags too. Thanks.
