MFT October New Product Launch

Today's the day! My Favorite Things October Release is now live!
All new products are available here in the MFT Store. You also have a chance
to win one of two $100 gift vouchers just by leaving a comment on all the designers' blogs.

Before you go, I want to share my project using the new Radial Stitched Circle STAX.
I immediately thought of pairing them with the snowflakes from Snowflake Flurry
and the different sized snowflakes fit perfectly inside.

I cut several circles from Razzle Berry and Sour Apple card stock, and white
embossed different snowflakes on them. The sentiment is from Gift Tag Greetings.

I cut a piece of the new Calm and Cozy Chevron paper with Blueprints 24
and adhered it to a Smooth White card base. The snowflake circles were
adhered to the card, some of them popped up with dimensional foam.

So there you have it...now let the shopping begin!

Be sure to leave a comment here and on the rest of the designers' blogs!
Thanks so much for stopping by during the release countdown.
Happy Shopping!

MFT October Release Countdown Day 1

One more day till My Favorite Things October Release! All new products
will go on sale Tuesday at 10PM EST. Have you got your wish lists ready?

Today I'm sharing two cards using Snowflake Flurry--a set of beautiful snowflakes
that have matching Die-namics, sold separately.

On the first card, I white embossed several snowflakes and the sentiment
then ink distressed with several shades of dye inks and spattered some water 
over the surface. When it was dry, I used the rectangle element from
Blueprints 25 and cut out a panel.

I used a smaller rectangle die and cut into the design, off center.
The larger piece was adhered to a card base, and the center piece
was popped up with dimensional adhesive. A few sequins finished off the card.

On the second card, I white embossed snowflakes in the center
of a watercolor card, then ink distressed and water spattered the surface.
The card was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24.

I white embossed the sentiment on a strip of vellum and folded the ends
under the ink distressed panel and popped it up on a card base.
The card was also finished off with sequins.

MFT October Release Countdown Day 2

It's just two more days till My Favorite Things October Release!
Today I'm sharing some fun products from Laina Lamb--Stay Cool and
a Die-namics Cool Cup so you can create tons of cool beverage cards!

And because this is such a fun set, I made two cards to share with you.
First up is a melon bubble tea drink--my favorite!

The cup was die cut from watercolor card stock and colored with a Zig marker
and some water. The "bubbles"--tapioca pearls--were made with the dot stamp
from Snowflake Flurry which happens to be the perfect size.

I freehand cut a thicker straw and stamped the sentiment choices on
the side of the cup. Both cards have backgrounds created with the
new Stencil Crosshatch, stenciled with kraft ink.

The second card happens to be a regular iced coffee with a touch
of whipped cream--yum! The cup was die cut from watercolor card stock
and colored with a brown Zig marker and water.

The whipped cream and straw were cut from white card stock and
I colored the straw with a green Copic marker. Can you see the domed lid?
I die cut it from acetate, and assembled everything on the card base.
The sentiment was white embossed and adhered to the cup.

My big adhesive secret for gluing acetate? This. Tombow Mono Aqua.
It's a clear glue so it makes sense using it on clear acetate, right?
It's quite awesome.

countdown release, and don't forget to leave a comment there to win prizes!
Hope to see you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by!
