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 Donna Mikasa featuring Birdie Brown Beast Friends stamp set, and Happy Wonderful Christmas and Blueprints 24 Die-namics mftstamps

Donna created a whimsical holiday card with our new Happy Wonderful Christmas Die-namics and one of the cute yetis from the new Beast Friends stamp set.

The Happy Wonderful Christmas Die-namics may feel like it’s only fit for graphic designs, but Donna proves otherwise. By using a pastel color wash and adding sweet details to the stamped image, this card has a lock on super cute.

Handmade card from Vika Salmina featuring Hand-Lettered Christmas stamp set, Merry Everything stamp set and Die-namics, Snowfall Background stamp, and Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics #mftstamps

The October release is filled with tons of holiday inspiration, and Vika came up with this cute design inspired by several of our new products — Hand-Lettered Christmas, Merry Everything, and Snowfall Background.

The Hand-Lettered Christmas stamp set has a pretty and elegant flair, but there are so many possibilities. Vika created a full moon, stamped her sentiment, and added character to her design with two reindeer from the Merry Everything stamp set. 

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

Time to take a trip back to re-visit one of our October Release products. This month, we’re taking a closer look at the wide variety of Script Die-namics we have to offer! Cause for Celebration, Peaceful Greetings, Sending Hugs (this month’s Free with $60), Thanks, and Well Wishes are all inspired by the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set. These Die-namics are not intended to be used in conjunction with All Occasion Sentiments – they are larger than the stamps and will not cut the stamped images.

A Magical Design with Raluca

Today’s guest is the delightful Raluca Vezeteu, and she absolutely adores our Magical Dragons and Magical Unicorns stamp sets (and we can’t blame her!). Let’s check out the adorable card she’s created for us today incorporating both!

Print

I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for My Favorite Things this month. Thank you so much to all the team at MFT for having me. This really is a dream come true because My Favorite Things is my favorite brand!

I totally fell in love with the dragons from the Magical Dragons stamp set and the unicorns from Magical Unicorns, and I felt that for my card I should pair these two stamp sets. They’re both magical, so they work perfect together, right? 🙂

Handmade card from Raluca Vezeteu featuring Birdie Brown Magical Dragons and Magical Unicorns stamp sets, and Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics #mftstamps

I stamped all of the elements, colored them with colored pencils, and for more interest I added a lot of sparkle on them.  I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a piece of vellum. Then I prepared the front panel. First I cut some hills using the Die-namics Stitched Snow Drifts, and I inked them with distress inks.

Handmade card from Raluca Vezeteu featuring Birdie Brown Magical Dragons and Magical Unicorns stamp sets, and Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics #mftstamps

To finish my card I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh (4 mm Sparkling Clear Sequins6 mm Sparkling Clear Sequins8 mm Sparkling Clear Sequins), and I mounted the entire panel on a white card base.

That’s all for today! I had a blast! I’ll be back in late October with some inspiration for you using the new release. Have a lovely day!
