MFT October New Product Tour

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the My Favorite Things New Product Tour!  This month (and from this release forward), instead of a blog hop, each of our design team members will be focusing on one of our new sets and/or Die-namics.  On Kim’s blog you will see a list of designers, their product focus and all pertinent links, all in one place.   As usual, there is blog candy hidden among one of our blogs, so be sure to leave comments as you “tour” to better your chances of winning!

My focus today is on our new and totally fabulous à la modes set, Fight Like a Girl.

Not only is this one of my favorite of our new releases, but I think this is my favorite of all my samples for the month.

I colored with Copics, then stamped the gloves a second time, colored and cut out, raising each on a foam booster. If you look closely you will see that I added to the shorts a tiny pink stamped ribbon using the smaller of the two ribbons from this month’s Who’s That Girl Chooses Hope set.

The tag from our Notched Tag Die-namics and Stamp Set was perfect for attaching the short sentiment.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from the set and the larger ribbon from Who’s That Girl Chooses Hope.  Along the bottom (and along the left side on the front of my card) I tucked a strip of Simply Scallops Die-namics.

All of our new products are available right now, right HERE in our new and improved MFT Boutique.  Please refer back to Kim’s blog for direct links to more samples. 

Thanks SO  much for stopping by!  Have a great evening!  :)

MFT Teasers, Day 7

Hi everyone!  Today is the last day of previews of My Favorite Things’ October release!  It’s almost time for you to grab all your favorite brand spankin’ new products.  But first we have one final round of focus on all of our new Die-namics for October!

You’re So Incredibly Tweet

Here I’ve used Contempo Bird Cage Die-namics and Stamp Set along with our new Postage Border Die-namics

After die-cutting my cage, I die-cut two birds, one from patterned paper and one from black cardstock.  The bird is adhered over the cage with foam boosters, and the wing is raised on a booster as well.   

Above the sentiment, I placed a strip of Postage Border with a small black rhinestone placed in each “scoop.”

Our October release will take place TONIGHT, October 4th, at 10 p.m. EST.  You can attend the release party from 8 – 10 p.m. EST here in the forum for fun, games, prizes and the announcement of our next Guest Designer! 

We hope you’ll join us tonight at 10 p.m. EST immediately following the release party for our October New Product Tour.  All info will be posted on Kim’s Blog.  See you then!  Have a great day!
