Remember, I am Here for You

It’s time for a sketch with My Favorite Things!  This week I’ve used new Pure Innocence I Pick You.

I used a base of Sweet Tooth card stock, accented with Blu Raspberry, Kraft and Lemon Drop.


The image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card using new Black Licorice Hybrid ink, which works beautifully with Copic markers.  After coloring, I die-cut using Pierced Oval STAX.

I stamped the image inside using Kraft ink and the sentiment, from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments was stamped in Black Licorice Hybrid.

Here’s the sketch if you’d like to play along.  You can find all details for the challenge on the MFT Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Additional supplies:  Copic markers (E00, E11, BV000, Y21, E31, E33, E35, BG13, BG15, BG18, R01, R02, YR24, G24, BG70, C00, C1, C3).
Finished size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

MFT April Release Rewind

Welcome to Day 2 of MFT Release Rewind where we revisit products from the last release, specifically those we haven’t yet had a chance to use.

I’ve been anxious to try a technique demonstrated in the latest Online Card Class — Clean & Simple: One Layer Cards 3. If you haven’t tried one of the classes, I highly recommend you do!  I always learn something.  Anyway, in this last class, I discovered inlaying die-cuts. ♥ ♥ ♥  I am hooked.  Perfect for my post today!

On my first card, I used dies from new Baby Bib Die-namics with Oh Baby and Beautiful Baby Die-namics.

After die-cutting the bib from Sweet Tooth card stock, I cut the word baby from both the bib and Blu Raspberry. I removed the white word, replacing it with the blue to leave a perfectly flat surface.  I stamped “sweet” from Birthday Sentiments and the tiny dotted line from Beautiful Baby.

The Blu Raspberry panel was embossed using Swiss Dots Stencil.  While holding the stencil  in place, I then sponged over the dots with Sweet Tooth pigment ink. The tiny heart was cut from Beautiful Baby Die-namics, stitched in place to create a ‘button’ on the bib.

I stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Baby inside and added a second small heart in the corner.

Next, I used new Transformables Say Hello, using the same inlaid technique.

After die-cutting and assembling the speech bubble, I die-cut two flowers (using Blueprints 12), cutting them from the assembled Blu Raspberry panel and from a scrap of gingham leftover from this card.   I removed the blue/white flowers and inserted the gingham ones.  Sparkly silver enamel dots added some interest to the flower centers.

Inside, I added a ‘smile’ die-cut from Blueprints 11 with ‘dear friend’ stamped from Blissful Butterflies.

MFT April Previews, So Very Proud of You

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another day of MFT April previews!  Today I’ve used new Bright Lights Numbers & Symbols, Graduation Accents Die-namics, Happy Graduation stamp set by Laina Lamb and Star Background.

I will be mailing this card so I wanted to keep it as flat as possible. Using Nightshift Blue ink, I stamped the Star Background onto the bottom portion of a Sweet Tooth card.  The numbers were die-cut from Nighshift Blue card stock with the hat pieces cut from Paver Red.  I added just a touch of dimension to the hat by placing clear Kool Tak foam squares beneath the top.


Inside, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Graduation.

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to a second day of April 8 release previews with My Favorite Things!  Today I’ve used our new Birdie Brown set, You’re Super, and it is SUPER cute.  (I know I said that yesterday also, but I’m telling you, I love this release!)

Inside, I stamped the girl and a second sentiment using Black Licorice ink.

MFT April Previews, Welcome Baby

Hi everyone!  It’s time to begin previews of MFT‘s April release! (This might be my favorite release yet. )  My samples today use super-duper cute Beautiful Baby stamp set with coordinating Die-namcs by Lisa Johnson, as well as new Blueprints 14.

My first card uses Pink Lemonade and Smooth White card stock.  The small elephant is stamped in Pink Lemonade ink, die-cut using Beautiful Baby Die-namics and raised on foam tape.  The remaining pieces were cut using Blueprints 14.


Inside, I stamped the elephant again with a sentiment from the set stamped in Black Licorice.

Next, I used Smooth White card stock with Sno Cone card stock and ink.  I created a tail for the bigger elephant using white string.  As above, all die-cut elements except the elephant are from Blueprints 14.

I finished the inside similar to the one above, adhering an extra stamped/die-cut elephant and adding another sentiment from the Beautiful Baby set.
