My Favorite Things - May Birthday Project Challenge!

Hello friends!

I'm super excited to be sharing a project that was inspired by this month's Birthday Project Challenge! The challenge for this month is to personalize a birthday card design by using any of the fabulous alphabet stamps and dies that My Favorite Things carries! This challenge arrived at the perfect time, as it's my son-in-law's birthday in a few days and they just purchased a new home! I know he has big plans to build things in his new shop, so I made him a card using the Let's Tool Around Stamp Set from this month's Vault Release, and I personalized it using the Captions Alphabet Dies. I'll be including a Home Depot Gift Card, because I know that'll get put to great use!

I repeatedly stamped the images from the Let's Tool Around Stamp Set in Blueberry, Summer Splash and Grout Gray Premium Dye Inks to create the background. I die cut one of the Fold-Up Tags from vellum, and I stitched it to the background panel.  Did you see what I did there? I said I STITCHED the tag to the panel! I haven't stitched on a card in ages, and it was so much fun! I must remember to do this again soon! The sentiment from the Little Birthday Notes Stamp Set onto some Blueberry card stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, heat embossed it with white embossing powder, and die cut it using the Skinny Strips Die-Namics. I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below.

That'll do it for me today, friends! My oldest daughter's family has been here visiting, and today is their last full day! So I'll be hanging out in the pool with them.  I'll be back again real soon with more crafty goodness. And until then, I hope you have a great day!
