MFT Snow Globe card kit

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things the Holiday Snow Globe card kit release.  This amazingly festive card kit is now available for purchase in the My Favorite Things online shop.

I created a clean and simple card base with a limited colour palate using whites and reds.

My inspiration for this card started with the pattern paper which is from the Holly Jolly paper pad. 

I selected the Santa image from the Snow Globe Singles stamp set and then cut him out using the coordinating Die-namics. To create my background, used the Snow Globe Die-namics which coordinates perfectly with the circle shaker window inserts.
I stamped a few of the tree images from the Snow Globe Singles stamp set and stamped them in red.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #559

Hi Friends!
Welcome to another Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things.

It must be funny visiting my blog or Instagram feed as of late…I’ve gone between making Halloween cards to Christmas cards and then back to Halloween haha….
In all honesty though, this is my most favorite time for card making as I have so much fun playing with both seasonal themes. 
I decided to use the Everything but the Broom Die-namics that was released back in August. I had so much fun playing with it, I knew I wanted to spend some more time using it before spooky season was over.

The card sketch called for a slimline card design but I decided it alter it and design a traditional A2 sized card.

Using the Everything but the Broom Die-namics is quick and easy, simply grab the die and your favorite card stock colours and go to town.
I did a bit of ink blending and added some white gel pen details so they wouldn’t feel so flat.
I grabbed a sentiment from the Frightfully Sweet stamp set which I feel works perfectly with this card.

I hope you enjoyed my card creation for today!

MFT & Friends - September Release

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things September MFT & Friends release celebration. Over the past 5 days, we showcased the amazing new goodies that are now available in the MFT online shop.

Today I created a slimline Christmas card that can quickly be massed produced yet packs a lot of punch style wise. 


I used the Santa Sends His Love and Sweet Christmas stamp sets which are pretty unique. There are solid and outline images that can be stamped in various colours to create fast, bright and cheery images.


I used the slimline Stitched Circle Trio die set and then stamped the Christmas Greetings background stamp in black ink onto white card. I then placed the stamped images in the centers of the circle windows.

To finish off my card, I heat embossed the Itty Bitty Holiday sentiment set with white embossing powder onto black cardstock and then cut hem out using the Itty Bitty Banners Die-namics

MFT September Release Countdown - Day 1

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things September Release Countdown. Over the past 5 days, myself and the rest of the design team showcased a variety of amazing new goodies that will be available in the MFT online shop on Tuesday September 7th @ 10am

For today’s projects I played around with the Bright Holidays stamp set and coordinating Die-namics, The Christmas Tree Background stencil and the Christmas Greetings Background stamp.

I stamped and coloured up the image using Copic markers and then cut it out using the coordinating Die-namics.
I just think this image is the most adorable yet!! 

For my background, I used the Christmas Tree Background stencil with two shades of green Distress Ink. Leaving the stencil in place, I placed the Christmas Greetings background stamp overtop and stamped it using Gravel Grey Premium Dye ink from MFT. 
To finish off my card, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Bright Holidays stamp set using black ink and added a matting of red cardstock.

MFT September Release Countdown - Day 2

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things September Release Countdown. Over the next 2 days, I will be showcasing a variety of amazing new goodies that will be available in the MFT online shop on Tuesday September 7th @ 10am

The Special Delivery stamp set and coordinating Die-namics is a versatile stamp set that you can not only create holiday projects with but honestly it can be used year round and for many occasions.

I stamped out the majority of the images from this set, coloured them up using Copics and then cut them out using the coordinating Die-namics.
I wanted to create a bright and cheery scene that necessarily wasn’t for Christmas so I used a primary colour palette.
The clouds were created by ink blending using the Slimline Cloud Edges stencil and I paired it with some snowy hills that I created by using the Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts.

To finish of my card, I placed the card front onto some black card stock that was slightly larger than the card front  and stamped the sentiment using black ink
