From Miss Tiina, we bring you the Cute Critters stamp set and Die-namics. This set includes three sweet animals, a trunk to perch them on, a handful of small accent designs, and a variety of punny sentiments. The Die-namics set coordinates with the stamp images to create perfectly-sized die cuts. The addition of a sweet little mask element instantly turned that rascally raccoon into a heart-stealing bandit.

Merci, gracias, arigato…however you say it, that’s how we feel towards you :) We love introducing a new Free with $60 Die-namics each month to show our gratitude and during this season of thankfulness, we thought it only appropriate to introduce the incredibly useful Many Thanks Die-namics. Three dies, two smaller options – one capitalized, and one super-sized, will become invaluable to your card making and crafting.

Three heartfelt sentiments are designed to express appreciation in the most elegant way possible. The die-cut script sentiments in the Words of Gratitude Die-namics can be used alone, or mix and matched with the phrases included in the Thankful Thoughts stamp set for a more multi-dimensional look.

A clean and readable sans serif font is the perfect foil to a beautifully loopy script font in the Thankful Thoughts stamp set. Mix and match the phrase and word images to create an infinite array of sentiments or, use in conjunction with the Words of Gratitude Die-namics to create a more dimensional look. A variety of coordinating images including flowers, leaves, and a seasonally appropriate acorn, provide the perfect way to accent the look.

Seven detailed leaf options are included in the Falling Leaves Die-namics combining perfectly to create layered wreathes and leaf piles begging to be disbursed by a single jubilant jump.

The Mini Chicken Wire Background is an open hexagon pattern with a twist: the subtlest bit of squiggle to mimic the look of chicken wire. Add some down-on-the-farm appeal to your projects or simply a bit of texture – this design isn’t limited to barnyard hijinks!

Homespun charm is the name of the game with the new Mason Jar Labels stamp set. This set is chock-full of versatile sentiments in an amazing mix of fonts, solid label stamps, and a fun diagonal stripe that can be used to create a cool border or add stripes to the straw element in the Mason Jar Mug Die-namics.

You love to cool off on a late-summer day with a refreshing mug of lemonade – the Mason Jar Mug Die-namics makes it easy to emulate that feeling in paper form! Pour a frosty glass of tangy lemonade by assembling multi-layer lemon wedges in two different styles, ice cubes, and a straw within the mug. Emboss line threads along the mouth of the jar add extra realism. A separate label element is the perfect home for one of the sentiments included in the coordinating Mason Jar Labels stamp set.

Tropical Engagement Congratulations

We just can’t get enough of Heather Pulvirenti so we had to ask her back! You’ll love her gorgeous (single layer!) design.

Print

Hi, everyone! I’m so glad to be back again to share another card I created using My Favorite Things goodies.

14994080077_9a01b0e740_b

My card today features the Together Forever and Tropical Sensations sets.  To create my card, I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the “Happy Engagement” sentiment in gray ink.

090914 CU

Next, I stamped images from the Tropical Sensations set in coral, yellow, lime, and teal.  Once the inks dried a bit, I attached the stamped layer to the card base with pop dots.

Well, that wraps it up for me today.  Huge thanks to My Favorite Things for the opportunity to guest design once again using their amazing products! :)
