Time to take a trip back to re-visit one of our August Release products. This month, we’re taking a closer look at the spook-tacular Frightful Friends stamp set and Die-namics! Get Halloween ready with the Frightful Friends stamp set! Dracula, Frankenstein, and his lovely bride scare up all sorts of adorable fun in this bewitching set with the makings of all sorts of spook-tastic scenes. Scrubby grass, a sinister fence, two bats, and a cute but creepy candle will add to your hair-raising designs. Pair this set with the Grave Situation stamp set for more spine-tingling details in your scene. The clever and punny sentiments add the perfect and hilarious finishing touch. You’ll love this set… to death. Bwahahaha! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp then cut OR cut then stamp. This feature makes the Die-namics lighter weight and allows for easier removal from the die. The mound of dirt die has a slit in it that allows the characters to pop up through the slit making it appear that they are breaking out of their grave!

You Make My Life Magical

Today we are welcoming Laura Dovalo to our blog as an MFT Guest Designer. We think you’ll like what she has to offer! Let’s take a look at Laura’s super cute cards featuring the brand new Magical Dragons stamp set from our August release.

Print

Hola everybody!

I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for My Favorite Things this month. Thanks for inviting me! I totally fell in love with the dragons from the Magical Dragons stamp set — they are not scary at all and suitable for any occasion. I made three different cards to show you how versatile they can be.

My first card is perfect for a child. I love giving cards to my kids just to tell them how special they are and how much they mean to me. Isn’t the baby dragon adorable?

Laura_Dovalo-card1

I stamped all of the elements, colored them with Copic markers, and used the matching dies to cut them out. The cloud is cut from white card stock and the paper is from the Lucky Prints 6×6 Paper Pack. I embossed the sentiment with platinum embossing powder.

My second card is more spiritual with a colorful sky background that I inked with distress inks. I masked the dragons with masking paper and added a die-cut moon from the Spooky Sweets stamp set and stars that I cut from silver card stock using the Stars in the Sky – Vertical Die-namics.

Laura_Dovalo-card2

I embossed the sentiment from the Essential Sentiments stamp set in white on a strip of black card stock and cut a fish tail on one of the ends.

My third card is fun and masculine with the wood-like frame cut with the Essential Cover-Up – Vertical Die-namics. I added even more manliness with mini screw brads.

Laura_Dovalo-card3

After stamping and coloring the images, I added some scales and shadows with a black Copic pen to really make the images pop. I also adhered some tiny hearts covered with Glossy Accents on the eyes of the princess. I saved a lot of hassle by adhering a strip of Stick-it adhesive on the back of the paper before fussy cutting the images. Gluing them was easy peasy!

That’s all for today! I had a blast, and I hope that you did as well watching these awesome dragons in action! I’ll be back in late August with more inspiration for you. Hasta la vista!


Make sure to tag #mftstamps when you share on social media so we can see what you’re creating – maybe you’ll be spotted!
