My Favorite Things - June Release MFT & Friends: Swimming Hole Friends!

Hello again!


I'm back again today with my project for the June Release, this one featuring the new Swimming Hole Friends Stamp Set! And I pulled out the new Wavy Lines Stencil again because I just can't help myself!


How freakin' cute is that snorkeling turtle?! I am so in love with the Swimming Hole Friends Stamp Set - every single image just makes me happy! And as you can see, I'm so inspired by the Wavy Lines Stencil! This time, I layered it on top of the Oval Extraordinaire Stencil to create another focal scene - simple yet sweet! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below! All of the June Release products are available for purchase NOW and can be found by clicking on the graphic below!

My Favorite Things - June Release Countdown Day 1: Sunshine Kisses!

Hello everyone!

 


I'm back again today with one more June Release Countdown project, this one featuring the new Sunshine Kisses Stamp Set, and I've once again pulled out the Wavy Lines Stencil! I am so addicted to this thing!




I did some masking and ink blending to give the impression of the ocean and skyline in the distance! and I inked some Milk Chocolate Dye Ink onto some Kraft card stock using the Drifts & Hill Stencil to make it look like sand dunes, and then I die cut it using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-Namics. I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release)! All of the June Release products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 10:00 AM EDT!

My Favorite Things - June Release Countdown Day 2: Best Catch Ever!

Hello again!


I'm back again today with another June Release countdown project, this one featuring the new Best Catch Ever Stamp Set and the Wavy Lines Stencil! I kept this very simple so as to create a sweet focal area that really showcases the new products!


Sea-themed images, especially whales, hold a dear place in my heart! I'm so in love with the sweet images contained in the Best Catch Ever Stamp Set! I am also madly in love with the new Wavy Lines Stencil, and have used it on most of my projects for this month's release! It's super versatile, and really fun to play with to create the variegated colors of the ocean! I layered it on top of the Circle Extraordinaire Stencil (I love layering stencils!) to give it that "port hole" look. I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release!)

My Favorite Things - June Release Countdown Day 3

Hello friends!


Welcome to the My Favorite Things June Release Countdown Day 3! I'm dropping in today to share a project that I created using the new Graphic Roses Die-Namics! It's an amazingly detailed die that provides a lovely outline, and allows for some time-consuming but super fun inlaid die cutting! I sat down in front of my favorite binge show and went to town!


I die cut the Graphic Roses Die-Namics three times - once from Smooth White, once from Poppin' Pink and once from Limelight! I used the white layer as the foundation for the inlaid die cuts, doing my best to secure the inside die cuts to the outline using tape. And then I removed the individual Poppin' Pink and Limelight pieces and inlaid them to create the final cluster of roses! I trimmed out a main panel from Smooth White and adhered the assembled rose cluster using foam squares. I die cut the Little Hello Die-Namics from Poppin' Pink and Translucent Vellum, adhered the two layers together with liquid glue, and then adhered the assembled die cut to the image panel using more liquid glue. I adhered the main panel to a stitched scalloped rectangle that I die cut from vellum using Blueprints 27 Die-Namics. And then I adhered the assembled panel to an A2, top folding card base made from Limelight card stock! I am amazed at the incredible detail of the Graphic Roses Die-Namics and look forward to playing with it more! I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release.)

Hello again!


I'm popping in today to share a project that was inspired by this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Unusually, I pretty much used the sketch as is - I typically go "off script" a bit! But not today! Here's this week's sketch:


And this is what I created in response to this week's challenge!


I warned you that there wouldn't be much diversion from the sketch! I mean - what's more perfect that a mylar balloon among the clouds? I used the Balloon STAX Die-Namics to create my balloon - I die cut it out of some of that amazing rainbow iridescent card stock from my stash! I used the Stitched Rolling Clouds Edges Die-Namics to create the layered clouds, and I used the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil to ink some air rays on the base of the card! The sentiments are all from the new Itty Bitty Basics Stamp Set (the "FREE with $60 Purchase" item from this month's Kit Release!) and they were die cut using the Itty Bitty Strips Die-Namics! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fabulous designs that my fellow teammates have created for your inspiration using this week's Sketch Challenge! And while you're there, be sure and link up a project of your own using this week's sketch for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! It's a random draw, but you have to play to win!

That's it for me, friends! I'll be back soon with my monthly interactive card and process video, so please stay tuned! Until then, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

My Favorite Things - Outside the Box Challenge: Balloons!

Hello friends!


I'm super excited to be sharing a project that I created that was inspired by this month's Outside the Box Challenge! This month's challenge is all about celebrating with balloons! And considering this is graduation season, I knew this was the perfect time to bust out the Pumped-Up Letters and Pumped-Up Numbers Die-Namics to personalize a graduation card! And, of course, I pulled out the Outside the Box - Level Up Die-Namics and the Outside the Box Clouds Die-Namics! There was lots of die-cutting happening in my craft room today! LOL


We have two special graduates in our lives, so this will definitely be floating towards one of them! I had some shiny rainbow card stock in my stash, so I used that to die cut the balloon letters and numbers. The clouds were die cut from Vellum, and the box card was die cut from Smooth White and Something Blue card stock. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Basics Stamp Set, which is the "Free with $60 Purchase" Stamp Set from this month's card kit release! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other outstanding projects that my fellow teammates have created for your inspiration using the Outside the Box products and balloons! And while you're there, why not link up a project of your own for a chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to to the MFT Online Boutique! It's a random draw, but you can't win if you don't play!

That'll do it for me today, friends! I'll be back soon with more crafty stuff! Until then, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
