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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

We meet again! Guess what? We’re still counting down the September release from My Favorite Things.
On your mark. Get set. Go,
Please give it up for card #1.
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.
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.
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).

And be sure to check out the list below for links to all the MFT products I used to make these cards. Links to the newest goods are kinda like magic. They will work when the new release is made live at 10 p.m. EST on Tuesday.
And you guessed it! I’m back with a couple more projects made with the new stuff.
Please give it up for card #1.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It’s that time again! It’s time to start counting down to another awesome release from My Favorite Things. (Woohoo!)
And I’m pretty excited to share with you a couple things I made with some of the new stuff.
Meet card #1.
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.
And meet card #2.
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.
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.

So enough hop talk. Here’s the card I made to share with you today.
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.
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.
Made both of these a bit back in response to a couple challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.
For this one, I scribbled watercolors on watercolor paper to make the watercolor pattern. I let it dry, stamped the flowers on top and then die-cut it with the Stitched Rectangle STAX from My Favorite Things.
I’ve always loved a rainbow scheme. Just something about the happiness it brings.
This, too, was for a challenge. It was to make a little scene.
In my little scene, kitties and mice get along perfectly. They are besties! 😉
I created both of these cards with the new Pumpkin Spice collection from Simple Stories. Was working on another project with the collection. Completed it. Still had the goods sitting on my desk and just couldn’t stop playing! 🙂
The little piece of tape toward the top of the first card is actually a border sticker from this sheet of stickers. I just tore it to look like Washi tape.
Really like that torn tape look, even though it’s been around for quick awhile.
On that second card, it’s a little hard to tell but look really close and you’ll see used three of the chipboard frames. It’s kind of a puzzle (hee) but I just kinda stacked up together.
The card is probably a little bulkier than most, but I think it’s still pretty mailable. Might cost an extra stamp, but it could still go through the mail… in the right envelope. 😉
Alright! That’s what I have. I’ll be back again soon, friends.
I really wanted to stretch myself to do something different for me so I heat embossed the tree and hut and then did some watercoloring.
Watercoloring looks all fancy, but I think it’s a pretty forgiving stamping technique as long as you apply colors lightly at first.
First, I colored the tree with light greens and browns. I let the colors almost dry and then I came in with some darker greens and browns. I thought the tree looked nice, but I felt like it just needed a little more so I added the blue sky and then the tan sand. For that sky, look really close. You’ll see I brought the color really close to my embossed lines. Because I used white embossing powder (rather than a dark color), it helped to make the images obvious than they would have if I’d left a little gap between the blue color and white embossed lines.
So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to hit the MFT Blog to see who else from the team took a whack at today’s challenge.
