Let the Festivities Begin — the May Release Countdown Starts NOW!

From Festive Old Friends to unbearably adorable bunny and bear pals (Cuteness Overload!), the new release will delight you. You'll be happy to stay cozy and crafty right at home while dreaming of your next adventure with this incredible release!

Birdie Brown stamps and Die-namics dies are a hallmark of the My Favorite Things family, and it brings us incredible joy to share this remarkable line with the world.

The inimitable Torico is stepping away from illustrating stamps, but her designs will live on. MFT will continue to serve as the home of Birdie Brown, offering the complete product line, including the return of all previously retired sets. We love the Birdie Brown line of products, and are excited about offering the opportunity for our customers to continue crafting and collecting her beloved designs.

  • You can enter to win an MFT shopping spree by commenting on each of the five countdown posts on the MFT Blog before 8 PM EDT on May 3. Please leave only one comment per person, per day.
  • One winner will be randomly selected from each countdown day, and all winners will be announced at 8 AM EDT on May 4 on the MFT Blog.


There’s no friend like an old friend and no one better to celebrate with than the ones that have known you longest! Festive Old Friends is the follow-up to the hugely popular Old Friends set. You’ll make indelible memories with this quintet of rejoicing retirees. All the party essentials are included — balloons, gifts, party hats, and of course a sweet treat with a LOT of candles — so get the party started SOON (because bedtime comes sooner than you expect!)

The coordinating dies are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our dies lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

Gerbera daisies and poppies make for a beautiful, casual bouquet. This large-scale image will shine on A2 card fronts spanning the full height of your card panel. A mix of greenery provides color contrast and texture. A wide selection of sentiment options is included to afford the opportunity to craft for a range of occasions. 

The coordinating die is open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our dies lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

A classic alphabet die set is an essential component of a well-rounded cardmaking toolbox, and the In Stitches Alphabet fits the bill perfectly. This set features a 1” tall alphabet with a neat line of stitching down the center of the lines that comprise each letter. The size of these letters makes them an ideal option for creating a text-based design and lends them well to integrating into sentiments created with stamped lead-in and follow-up phrases.

You’ll get so much enjoyment exploring all the styles this cool stencil can be integrated into. From industrial to modern to creating subtle texture for the most feminine of looks, your color choices and techniques determine the outcome. You have to love a design that works with everything!
