Release Replay

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 Torico featuring Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Snowfall Background stamp, and Birch Trees, Snow Drifts, and Pierced Rectangle Frames Die-namics #mftstamps

Torico’s clever and lovely design showcases the endless possibilities of our stamp sets and Die-namics. And what a pretty result!

While the Birch Trees Die-namics works well for summer scenes, pairing them with the Snowfall Background and Snow Drifts Die-namics takes the forest creatures into a winter wonderland.

Handmade card from Amy Lee featuring Birdie Brown adventure is Calling and Hog Heaven stamp sets and Die-namics, Pure Innocence Fun in the Sun, Oval Shadows, New York Skyline, and Paris Skyline Die-namics #mftstamps

That’s one cool pig in his sunglasses ready to take a trip around the world. Amy obviously had a blast dreaming up this hilarious combination of products!

Creatively combining lots of different products is a fabulous way to make your card as unique as the recipient! Take a look at your stamps and Die-namics for innovative combinations. Amy used two different stamp sets and four different Die-namics for her delightful design.

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

Have a Delightful Day

Today we are welcoming Maria Peters to our blog as an MFT Guest Designer. We think you’ll like what she has to offer! Let’s take a look at what Maria has created with some of the exciting new products from the June release.

Maria Peters

Hello Crafty Friends,

My name is Maria, and I am a German card maker. I live with my husband and my son in Hamburg, a big town in northern Germany. I’ve been making cards since June 2015.

I’m so happy and excited to be a guest designer on the My Favorite Things blog today. It’s not a secret that I’m a big fan of their supplies. A big THANK YOU to the whole MFT Team!

Today I would love to share two cards with you that I made with some brand new products from the June Release.

For my first card I used the lovely Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and Die-namics to build a scene. I love making scenes. I die cut the images with the Sweet Forest Friends Die-namics using watercolor card stock. Then I stamped the images with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Next I die cut my background panel and the banner for the sentiment using the brand new Blueprints 29 using watercolor card stock again. Then I die cut the hills and the grass using the new Stitched Valley Die-namics and the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics.

I water colored all pieces with my Gansai Tambi watercolors and distress inks.

To finish the card, I mounted all elements as shown to a white card base using dimensional foam tape. I embellished the card with a few clear sequins and clear Wink of Stella.

Handmade card from Maria Peters featuring Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Stitched Valley, Fresh Cut Grass, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

For my second card I made my own frame from watercolor card stock using the Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I die cut and stamped some images from Hog Heaven using watercolor card stock again and Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

I stamped the lovely pigs all over the frame and water colored all pieces with distress inks.

For the sentiment, I die cut the banner using Blueprints 23. I stamped the sentiment, and then heat embossed it white. I used a little bit of twine to make my own sign and mounted all items on the negative piece from the Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

To finish the card I mounted all elements as shown to a white card base using dimensional foam tape. I embellished the card with a few clear sequins.

Handmade card from Maria Peters featuring Birdie Brown Hog Heaven stamp set and Die-namics, Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX, and Blueprints 23 Die-namics #mftstamps

I hope you like my cards. To be honest, I can’t wait to show you more. It’s such fun to work with all these great supplies from My Favorite Things.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
