MFT Countdown: 5

Hi all!

It’s time yet again to start counting down to another fun release from My Favorite Things.


The fun begins today with a couple new cards made with the new stuff.

And oh boy, you guys! Just wait until you see the new stamps and dies (and stencils)! Save your pennies now, I tell ya! Good, good stuff!

Alright! So meet card #1.

Flower Buds Hi by Teri

For this bad boy, I cut the rectangle with the new Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. One of the things I love about MFT is their STAX dies. I love all these different treatments (like the double stitching) they give those dies. There’s just something about the look it gives a project.

I created the flowers here by mixing together a couple different new products – the Scribble Rose Overlay and Scribble Roses Die-namics and the Scribble Roses stamp set.

By the way, I also created the background paper. All I did was take the small flower in the stamp set and then stamp it over and over. I think it just kinda brought everything together nicely.

And meet card #2.

Let's Be Friends by Teri

I played it on the clean and graphic side with this card. Rather than using the rectangles in a traditional rectangle + larger rectangle (for a mat) sense, I wanted to do something different. How I did that was by anchoring that smaller rectangle in the corner of the larger rectangle.ย I think I like it!

And you might be wondering about that phrase? Well, it’s from the new Encouraging Words stamp set. I really, really, love the size of the phrases in this set. I think you are going to see it used a few times this week.๐Ÿ˜‰ ย They aren’t too big and aren’t too small.

So that’s what I have for you today.

Be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see who else is sharing projects.

You’ll find a list below of products I used to make these cards. The links to the new products will work after the new release is made live at 10 p.m. EST on August 4th.

Thanks for stopping by today, guys! I always enjoy it when you do.
