Let’s see how our team featured Beach Day in their own projects this month – I particularly love the variety of swimsuit designs she’s sporting!

Release Replay: May 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!

Seaside Seagulls and the Cloud Stencil have been immensely popular products from our newest release. Torico has combined them, along with some classic patterns from a couple of our paper packs, to create this sweet, sweet, sweet look.

Spotlight a simple scene by elevating a die-cut section from your stenciled or stamped background. Add a little wobble spring beneath the scene to really make things fun!

Donna has expertly combined elements from previous releases with fish from the new Birdie Brown set, Mermazing, and our brand new Rectangle Shaker Pouches to create this completely charming shaker scene.

Including a mix of stationery and mobile elements in your shakers really helps set the scene. Our trio of shaker pouches allows you even more creative freedom in constructing your shaker cards!

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

MFTv – Ombre Happy Birthday

The Happy Birthday to You Die-namics provides the die cuts necessary to create two cards with a single pass through your die-cutting machine – both the letters and resulting negative can be used to craft beautiful birthday wishes. Cutting the design from masking paper provides yet another opportunity though, as you’ll learn in this week’s episode of MFTv!

Bunnies frolicking at the beach – it’s just as fun as you’d imagine. These four fun bunnies are ready to spend the day watching the clouds float lazily across the sky, searching for seashells, and enjoying a delicious ice cream cone. Set a sunny scene with the included beach huts. You’ll see how wonderfully this collection works with other May products and that the bunnies and accessories work together, or independently. Now *that* is a sign of an excellent purchase!

Peek-a-Boo Giraffe: Copic Coloring with Sandy Allnock

Hello, friends, I’m Sandy Allnock, back again with my monthly coloring video. Welcome to MAY! I’m going to be creating a little ode to April in this month’s video…April the giraffe, that is!

You can keep up with the mama and baby HERE – just remember as you read this post that I wrote it all back in late April, so if the name is chosen for the baby already, that’s why I could be a little out of date!

Handmade card from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I thought a card with mama and baby gazing at each other would be especially appropriate (though watch my instagram today for another option I considered and rejected. LOL!) In the video I show you how to make the leaves from mama’s tree look like they’re spilling out onto the front of the card – with the awesome help of the MISTI!

With the paper used, I didn’t want a lot of color showing through – so I kept it to as simple coloring as I could. No blending, just lots of adorable bright Copic colors! To find colors in your collection that are the most intense, look for ones with a low first-digit – when the number has a 0 or 1, it’s the most intense (least dull) version of that color!

Handmade card from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

And I always love it when a card has an extra surprise inside, don’t you?

Handmade card from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I’ll be back again next month….I can’t wait to see what MFT will come out with for coloring next!
