Today I wanted to share a peek at the Charms Die-namics. If you haven’t seen these yet, then it’s time to take a closer look. Currently My Favorite Things has five Die-namics Charms sets: Sea Charms Die-namics, Tool Charms Die-namics, Halloween Charms Die-namics, Pet Charms Die-namics and the Country Charms Die-namics.
For today’s project, I’m using the Country Charms Die-namics. This is a set of four western themed dies. The little star was just the accent I needed as the finishing touch on today’s project. I added it right in place using a bit of our new Hemp Cord. This country gal was watercolored with Distress Ink Markers, and then I paper pieced her little vest from a bit of scrap paper. I’m using Sweet Tooth for my cardbase and then all my matting is with Black Licorice Cardstock.
Since we have an assortment of charms, how about a peek at a few samples using the other sets?
Jodi creates a fun sentiment & embellishment cluster by pairing the Halloween Charms with the Notched Tag.
Barbara hangs the Sea Charms Die-namics from a satin bow using a bit of twine on this sweet à la modes: You Anchor Me.
Inge pairs the Pet Charms Die-namics with the new PI: Prehistoric Girl for a clever sentiment treatment.
Jackie uses an assortment of Tool Charms for the perfect masculine embellishment.
I hope you’ve had a great week and that you’ve got something fun planned this weekend. Personally, I’m hoping to get a lot of stamping in because the weather is not looking promising. Does it make me terrible to be hoping for a day in my studio instead of a day on the soccer field? Whatever your plans, have a great weekend, and we’ll see you next week!
The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where challenge our designers to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we challenged our designers to create a card or project without the use of patterned paper.
Just below, we have a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today. For many of these patterned paper loving girls, this was a little bit scary, but their projects are all so beautiful. After all, with My Favorite Things stamps and Die-namics you have the ability to create your own custom patterns to bring your creative vision to life.
The girls have some new samples to share below which are linked just below, but here are just a few ways that they’ve recently created using only stamps, Die-namics, ink and coloring tools to create magnificent works of art.
Mona recently added text print details to the Primitive Pumpkins Trio from Own Your Story.
Lisa stamps her own patterned paper using a small stamp in Blessed Mouse.
Barbara creates a gorgeous, dimensional pop of color using only cardstock and Die-namics.
