My Favorite Things

Featuring MFT products

Super Day

Hi Everyone!

Next, I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

I started by stamping the My Favorite Things Romantic Script background on a kraft background which I then cut using a curved die.

I cut and coloured the Delightful Daisies image by Poppystamps before adhering it to the kraft background.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from Right At Home stamps and a few Nuvo drops.

Thank for stopping by!

AAA Cards One Layer challenge with polar twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a one-layer CAS card; our optional twist is ‘polar animals! Our sponsor is Ink Road.

A few years ago, when I saw how all my sweet, cute stamps were piling up, untouched, I finally realised I’m not a ‘cutesy’ cardmaker…. I LOVE looking at what others come up with but in reality I wasn’t using all those cute images. But you know what it’s like, the new release would come out, I’d buy them before they went out of stock but by the time the stamps arrived, influencers were working with the next cute release and the whole cycle would start again. Seriously, I have so many otters, lions, flamingos, farm animals, sea creature and other critters that I just never touch! I’m very careful nowadays and rarely get swept along with the monthly release FOMO!

But of course, I can’t resist the odd cutesy purchase here and there! For today’s card, I pulled out the sweet Seymore Seal stamp by Impression Obsession. He’s a November purchase and I’m so pleased that I was able to use him for this challenge! After stamping him, I masked the image and then stamped an ice block from a My Favorite Things set. I masked that block and sponged a light layer of Distress Ink across the background. After I removed the masks I coloured the ice and Seymore using my Twinkling H2Os. The sentiment is also by My Favorite Things.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Kylie, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Bold Snowflake

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge Please don’t tell me I’m the only one that looks at the sketch and sees the sign for the London Underground! Fortunately, I fought through my commuting visions and came up with a festive card instead!

I went through my festive paper mountain and cut a strip of Bo Bunny paper. I then blended a couple of regular distress inks before spritzing the blended piece with a water/Pixie Dust concoction! When the water had dried, I cut it with a bold Simon Says Stamp die.

I attached the snowflake to a vellum circle before attaching it to the card base. I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things and a few gems to complete my take.

Thank for stopping by!

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

Pink & Main was the Day 9 sponsor. I don’t have any of their festive stamps  but I decided to use the cute owl tags by Zsofi as my inspiration. The owl is by Stampendous and I also used a My Favorite Things sentiment plus some Lawn Fawn die cut snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 5 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

The sponsor for Day 5 was Reverse Confetti. I absolutely LOVE Jen Mitchell’s inspiration and happily pulled out my Reverse Confetti Triangle Trees and got to work! I used some Cosmic Shimmer sparkle paste, a My Favorite Things stencil and some patterned paper for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry and Bright deer

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge today. As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of the Memory Box circular scene dies that I’ve acquired over the years and decided to use them for my card.

I wanted to use the Reindeer Circle and Countryside Circle dies, but the latter is bigger than the former so I had to get creative as I wanted the circles to be the same size. I started with the Reindeer Circle die and used this to cut to circles in a white panel. I then cut away one deer and replaced it with the scene from the Countryside Circle die. I adhered a little deer from the Savvy Stamps Woodland Meadow set and then positioned one of my rejected stencil monoprint backgrounds behind the circles before adhering the whole ensemble to a card base.

To complete my card, I used a sentiment from the My Favorite Things Merry Everything stamp set and added a few sequins and a drop of red stickles for Rudolph’s nose!

Thank for stopping by!
