The Make a Wish Card Kit features everything you need to create vibrant, festive, and super HAPPY birthday cards. Stamp up a celebration with darling candles in whimsical dot and striped patterns, and add in the perfect sentiment to fit your recipient. You can top the candles with traditional flames or go crazy cute with hearts instead. Choose from eight (8) vivid ink colors, all provided with the kit, to make your birthday candles shine. The serif all caps font of the sentiments give this set a flair all its own, and one bold script wish steals the show! We make it easy to create flat and mailable cards using the patterned paper and stamps only, but you can add layers and dimension with the Die-namics popped up on foam tape. This kit also includes the Birthday Blowout Paper Pack with twelve (12) energetic and colorful designs in dots, stripes, and script. The fourteen (14) card stocks included in the kit complement the ink colors and the paper pack perfectly to give your projects that something extra special. You won’t want to stop creating birthday cards with the Make a Wish Card Kit!

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!!!
