Release Replay: June 2017

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!

Handmade card from Joy Taylor featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Ocean Pals features adorable two-step aquatic animals that pair perfectly with the plants in our previously released Exquisite Ocean set. We’re so inspired by the blended ink panel that Joy created before die-cutting and layering a stitched frame to highlight her scene.

Stamp and heat emboss elements on vellum – the transparency of the vellum creates a feeling of lightness to the element while the heat-embossing still provides visual weight.

Handmade card from Donna Mikasa featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

This camouflaged sentiment look Donna created with our current Free with $60 Die-namics is so versatile. It’s a fantastic way of preserving the look of the background you’ve created while still conveying your message.

Stencils are truly one of the hardest-working tools you have in your collection. This beautiful masking technique adds so much depth and implied texture to Donna’s thank you card.

This is just the beginning – keep on clicking to see how others on our team interpreted this month’s replay.
