MFT Countdown: 1

Hi all!

It’s almost time for the August release from My Favorite Things. (<—- Dude. We are just hours away. Woohoo!)

NewReleaseCountdown_Day1

I’ve got a couple more cards to share with you that I made with the new stuff.

Meet card #1.

Greetings Robot by Teri

Oh my goodness, you guys. I just love the new Bionic Bots stamp set. Robots = something I am a big fan of, especially cute ones like in this stamp set.

So I played it pretty safe here, cutting the body with the coordinating Bionic Bots Die-namics from a gray cardstock and stamping on top. I stamped the robot a second time on a pink cardstock and then fussy cut the heart.

I wanted the little guy to have some extra personality so I fashioned some antennas from wire. (Remember Mack, Rosey’s Boyfriend on The Jetsons? I was somewhat inspired by his antenna.)

And meet card #2.

Four Strip Hi by Teri

I had a huge desire to just go graphic so that’s what I did with this card: I went graphic! 😉

I cut the Four Way Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics die from pink, orange and black cardstocks and then pieced together pieces of it and adhered them all to a white cardstock.

If you look really close, you’ll see I added some stitching with white floss to some of the white openings. I think it really helps keep the card looking handmade but also also maintains a “professional” look by going tone on tone with the floss.

By the way, the circle in the middle was cut with the Double Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics dies. The word is from the Happy Hellos Die-namics. Laina turned me onto that set a long time ago. I must admit that I use it ALL the time.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see who else is sharing projects today.

And you’ll find a list of MFT products below that I used to make these cards. The links to the new products will work once the release is live on the 4th at 10 p.m. EST.
