New Best Friend is the latest adorable collection from our Birdie Brown line. While the sweet pup playfully licking our character’s face is completely charming, this week’s episode of MFTv demonstrates how to really up the versatility of this pet-themed set to make it the perfect starting point for almost any occasion.

Hello, I am excited to be guest designing for My Favorite Things again today. Today I am sharing with you, Cook Up Some Fun. Isn’t this just adorable?
Once again I decided to add one of my favorite MFT background stamps and I didn’t realize it was no longer available until I started writing this post. I stamped it with Nightshift Blue Hybrid Ink in one direction and then VersaMark in the other direction adding Clear Embossing Powder.
What location do you call home? I live on the east side of Washington State in Pullman, WA. The area is called the Palouse — it’s a major agricultural area. We are surrounded by “amber waves of grain” in the summer.
What is your favorite current MFT product? I would have to say the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 and 2. They just make a card have a finished feel.
What is your all-time favorite MFT product? Goodness, how’s a girl supposed to choose? MFT has amazing products! I would say that the beautiful selection of word dies tops my list. Flower stamp sets and Die-namics too. I’m a little biased, but I really do enjoy using Scribble Flowers.
What are your hobbies when you’re not creating MFT masterpieces? Anything that connects me to my daughters! Reading, art, going to theatrical productions. I love to be in the outdoors with my family too. Hiking, camping, trail walks, etc. Mountains and beaches have my heart, especially when my husband and girls are with me. I enjoy giving service to others too.

Today, we welcome Rhea Weigand to the blog for the first of two posts this week.
Hello, I am excited to be guest designing for My Favorite Things today and again later this week. Today I am sharing with you, Filled With Joy. Isn’t this just adorable?
I decided to add one of my favorite MFT background stamps — I didn’t realize it was no longer available until I started writing this post. Sorry, I can’t share that with you, but I have it and will continue to use it 😉
To make the card I used the Stitched Mod Square STAX simply by leaving the top cut line just above the fold line on the card. There are so many cool things you could create with these shapes.
Thank you for visiting today and helping me support MFT! There is so much inspiration on their blog and it’s amazing how much their online store has grown. Their stamp pads are amazing! Their dies are wonderful. It’s all just so much fun to shop and browse!
Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you! This release has been extremely popular so if you missed out on any of your favorites, be sure to sign up for a re-stock notification as we’re working to make them available to you again as quickly as possible.
Amy’s winter-white project features loads of lovely layers. The new Deer Love Die-namics were practically destined to be paired with the Birch Trees and Stitched Snow Drifts. Her classic white & blue combo is perfectly punctuated by the pops of red she included with the addition of the hearts and sentiment strip.
When you’re creating a project with lots of beautiful detail and dimension, consider limiting your color palette to allow your elements to shine.
Francine’s card is a perfect example of adding the feeling of movement to a card without actually including an interactive element. Her extreme slope was created with a simple angled panel ever-so-slightly enhanced by a soft blended gradient. You can feel the speed our Ski-sons Greetings bear is experiencing thanks to the addition of the ink spray she’s included to trail him.
You don’t need an excess of supplies to create incredibly dynamic cards. You can achieve looks like Francine’s with a single stamp set and Die-namics and a handful of basic supplies.
This is just the beginning – keep on clicking to see how others on our team interpreted this month’s replay.
You Make My Heart Melt and You Make My Heart Spin are the perfect candidates for practicing and perfecting a fun new technique to add to your repertoire. The icy ponds included in each set are begging for a reflection to be added and this week’s episode of MFTv will walk you through the process.

Start your project with a stylish base — the largest rectangle layers perfectly on an A2 card front!
Let’s see how our team featured Stitched Mod Rectangle and Square STAX in their own projects this month!
Hey there coloring friends! It’s the first Thursday after release, which means I’m back again with another coloring video…I look forward to this each month — I hope you do too!
Today’s card uses Friends in the Forest and I made it a winter card even though this cute set could actually be good for any time of year! The only one who’d be overdressed for spring would be the bear….and he could just be a bear who’s always chilly, right?
I stamped the front images first — the fox and owl — masked them off, then stamped the bear and deer. Next, I got out the watercolors and had fun! Check out the video to see how I did it and get some tips for mixing colors and creating that vignette background.
Fun, wasn’t it? The hardest part for me when watercoloring is waiting for the paint to dry before coloring a part of the image next to what I want to paint; I’m not a fan of how heat-drying curls my paper, so I’m trying to learn patience!
If you’d like the full list of colors in my palette, hop over to my blog and I’ve posted a bunch of info about the palette and everything there for you.
I’ll be coloring up these cuties in other mediums soon so come join me on Instagram too. I’d love to share more ideas for using these sweet images for cardmaking!
I won’t see you ’til after Thanksgiving so let me wish you and yours a beautiful celebration of the season of gratitude! I am forever grateful for everyone in this lovely craft industry and all that I’ve gained from each and every person. Thank you for inspiring me!
