MFT Preview 5 — Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Today the My Favorite Things team is back sharing samples using this month’s new à la modes, Polished to Perfection and 80’s Girl.

Today I’ve used 80’s Girl along with Retro Squares Die-namics (and one of my 14 new paper pads…)   :)

I used Copics to color my image, then colored over the sweater and leg warmers with a clear Spica glitter pen.  Remember the knits with the thin silver thread woven throughout?  No?  Lucky you!  :)

Along the left edge I used new Retro Squares Die-namics.  I used random scraps of cardstock to fill each square.

A simple finish to the inside.  (I *really* like those squares.)

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 7th from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games and PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, will take place August 7th at 10 p.m. EST. You’ll find all the newest products here at release time.
