Fun, right?!! I had a blast creating the treat toppers using the new Rainbows & Unicorns Stamp Set and coordinating dies, and the Cutieasaurus Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  And the tag for the teacher gift was created using the new Treat Tag Die-Namics and the new Sweet Stack 6 x 6 Paper Pack!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

My Favorite Things–January Release: MFT & Friends!

Well hello again!

MFTandFriends

Well the day has finally arrived for all of the amazing January Release products to make their way into your inky little hands!! And I suspect the new products are going to literally fly out the door, so be sure and place your order – just as soon as you look at my project!!  LOL

KKL_JAN0819-MFT-&-Friends

I was excited to finally have a chance to ink up the new Hearts Entwined Stamp Set!  You can do so many fun things with this stamp, but I really wanted to try the shadow stamping technique with it!  I stamped the image first using some Razzle Berry Hybrid Ink (tone on tone for the first stamp is best for this technique).  Before the next step, I prepped my Razzle Berry image panel with an embossing powder bag; you could also heat set the Hybrid Ink just for good measure.  I did all of my stamping in my Mini MISTI so that I could then shift the panel ever so slightly (like 1/16” down) and restamp the image using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  I was pretty darned happy with how it turned out!  I die cut the outside edge the panel using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-Namics and then adhered it to a Razzle Berry A2 card base.  The sentiment is from the new Sweet Nothings Stamp Set, and was stamped in Razzle Berry Hybrid Ink, and then die cut using the Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-Namics.  I added some Sparkling Clear sequins and #BOOM – done!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

My Favorite Things–January Release Countdown Day 1!!

Hello again!!

Print

We’re almost there, friends – today is the final day before the January Release goes live!  So hang in there just one more day!!  Today’s project features the Mondo Cheers Die-Namic and one of the sentiments from the Sassy Pants Love Stamp Set.

KKL_JAN0719-CD-Day-1

Well, if you haven’t figured it out already, there’s been a couple of themes throughout this Release Countdown – at least, for me – rainbows and love.  Two of my favorite subjects!  So I hope you love them as much as I do!  I die cut the Mondo Cheers Die-Namic four times from Smooth White card stock, adhered the layers together with liquid adhesive, and ink blended the top layer with some distress inks to create the rainbow effect.  I stamped the sentiment, from the Sassy Pants Love Stamp Set, onto some Black Licorice card stock, and die cut it using a banner die from the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics.  I adhered the sentiment strip and the word die cut to the elongated hexagon created using one of the dies from the Blueprints 33 Die-Namics.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below (although the links to the newest products will not be live until tomorrow morning!)

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fabulous projects that my teammates have created.  While you’re there, be sure and leave some love along the way for your last chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique.  A random winner will be chosen for each day of the January Release Countdown!  All of the January Release products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST.

Hola!

Aaackkk . . . we’re almost to the release date!  Can you stand the wait?!!  I’m dying, and I’ve already seen the January release!  I can’t even imagine how crazed you all are!  I’m back today with another project, this one featuring the new Hearts Entwined Die-Namics and the Sweet Nothings Stamp Set!

KKL_JAN0619-CD-Day-2

Once again, I’ve paired those amazingly fun Hearts Entwined with some rainbow smeared alcohol inks behind the negative of the die cut.  The sentiment is from the new Sweet Nothings Stamp Set, and is stamped onto some Black Licorice Card Stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below (keeping in mind that the links to the January Release products will not be live until the release.

My Favorite Things–January Release Countdown Day 3!

Hello!

Print

We are one day closer to the January Release date, and I have another project to share with you for Countdown Day 3!  It features the new Once Upon a Rainbow Die-Namics, and the sentiment is from the new Rainbows & Unicorns Stamp Set!

KKL_JAN1519-CD-Day-3

Again, I stayed pretty clean and simple.  I did a bit of ink blending with some Tumbled Glass on a panel of watercolor cardstock.  I also blended more distress inks onto a Smooth White panel to create the rainbow, that I then die cut using the new Once Upon A Rainbow Die-Namics.  The clouds, also part of the Once Upon A Rainbow Die-Namics, were die cut out of Smooth White card stock.  The sentiment, from the Rainbows & Unicorns Stamp Set, was stamped onto the panel using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  The hearts were die cut from some Poppy Card Stock using the multi-hearts die from the Baby Rattle Die-Namics.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below (keeping in mind that the new January product links will not be live until the release.)

My Favorite Things–January Release Countdown Day 4!

Hello again!!

Print

I’m back today with another fun project featuring more of the new January Release products!  Today’s project features the new Lots of Hearts Outline Die-Namics and Lots of Hearts Die-namics – they coordinate beautifully together, but work separately as well!  The sentiment is from the new Sassy Pants Love Stamp Set – and it cracks me up!

KKL_JAN0419-CD-Day-4

Even though it’s very clean and simple, I’m pretty much over the moon happy with how this turned out.  Sometimes, simple is better.  I die cut the Lots of Hearts Die-Namics from Razzle Berry, Orange Zest, Lemon Drop, Limelight and Summer Splash card stock, and then die cut the Lots of Hearts Outlines Die-Namics from Black Licorice card stock.  The outline images were adhered to the solid colored images with liquid glue, and then adhered in a wonky fashion to the image panel using foam squares. The “Talk Flirty To Me” sentiment is from the Sassy Pants Love Stamp Set, and is stamped using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below (the links to the new products will not be active until the release).

Hello, friends!!!!

Print

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!!  We had a great time in Seattle with our kids and grandkids, but I was ready to get back to my crafty cave!!  And things are about to get super fun since today is the first day of the January Release Countdown!  Today’s project features several new products: the Wonderful Woodland Friends Stamp Set and dies, the Scattered Hearts Background Stamp, the Spin & Slide Channels Die-Namics, and the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-Namics.  I also used the new Tweethearts Stamp Set and dies.

Of course, I had to make an interactive card with all of the new dies to help you make just about any kind of moving card possible!  I paired the new Spin & Slide Channels Die-Namics and the new Interactive Pull Tabs Die-Namics with the previously released Double Slider Loop Slots Die-Namics to create a fun Double Slider Loop card.  The sky is filled with the new Scattered Hearts Background Stamp, and those adorable critters and tree are all from the new Wonderful Woodland Friends Stamp Set.  The envelope is from the new Tweethearts Stamp Set.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below (although the new product links will not be live until the release.)
