Thanks for Sticking Your Neck Out for Me

Hi everyone.  :)  It’s sketch time with My Favorite Things.

This week I stuck 100% to the sketch, simply flipping it onto it’s side.  I used super-cute Pure Innocence Giraffe Girl, Circle STAX 1 and 2, Fishtail Flags, Fishtail Flags Layers and Nightshift Blue cardstock.

After coloring with Copics on X-Press It Blending Card, I cut out the girl and adhered her to the card front using foam tape.

On the inside I stamped a second sentiment and silhouette using Black Licorice ink.  The sentiment is from Pure Innocence Because You’re Special.


<—Here’s the sketch if you’d like to play along. You can find direct links to more samples HERE.  And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword MFTWSC114, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.  More info can be found in the MFT Forum in SCS.

MFT March Previews, Day 2

Hi everyone!  It’s Day 2 of March previews with My Favorite Things!  Today we’re sharing samples using Laina Lamb’s new sets:  Document It-Rock On and Journal It-Play List.  There are new coordinating Die-namics as well:  Accent It-Rock and Roll and Accent It-Cassette Tape.

The Accent It-Cassette Tape die-cut was the perfect size for creating a holder for one of the smaller iTunes gift cards.   After die-cutting from Steel Grey cardstock, I laid the gift card on the back of the die-cut then applied foam tape to the left, right and bottom sides to create the perfect fit. I used Journal It-Play List and Pink Lemonade ink to stamp the label onto Sweet Tooth cardstock.

The hand symbol, from Document It-Rock On, was stamped onto Sweet Tooth cardstock using Black Licorice ink.

The pull tab on the back of the gift card was die-cut using one of the tabs from new Blueprints 1.  Here’s a look at the gift card when pushed all the way into the pocket.

On the inside, I used Pink Lemonade ink to stamp ‘Rock Star’ from Document It-Rock On.
