MFT: October Launch

And the day is here! The time is now. The October release from My Favorite Things is now available!

New Product Launch

And to celebrate (… because that’s what we do…) I’ve got a couple cards to share with you today. Each of these cards uses the new Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics in some way.

Let’s do this.

Meet card #1.

From Santa by Teri

Even though the Cover-Up has a title of Snow Drifts, I was struck when I saw it by the cool design it has. Waves are just plain cool to design with. So I wanted to make a card that really showed off the waves so I made this “present” card.

From Santa by Teri

I used the die to cut up a couple different panels of cardstock and then pulled different waves together to make the design. And then I cut up a couple strips of cardstock to simulate ribbon. The bow in the middle? I cut it with the Photo Booth Props Die-namics. Bow for a present… bow for a photo … well, it works.

And meet card #2.

Thank You Waves by Teri

There’s a lot of cool Christmas stuff in the October release. I kinda wanted to be a rebel and make something non-Christmas so that’s what I did. 😉 I think it is always fun when a product can be used to create things for all kinds of occasions, and I particularly love that about this die.

Like the last card, I used the die to cut a bunch of different colors of patterned paper and then pieces together (with a frame cut from white cardstock).

And meet card #3.

Hi Waves by Teri

This one might seem like a bit of a stretch to you, but let me tell you a secret. Lean in really, really close now.

I really did use the die. Each of those waves were cut with the die. I cut so many pieces of paper for card #2 that I had a ton of wavy pieces left. So I threw caution to the wind and grouped them together make the somewhat abstract design.

Hi Waves by Teri

Alright, so that is what I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by!
