Hi everyone! It's an exciting day - the My Favorite Things December release is now live
and I am absolutely thrilled to be joining them this month for the MFT & Friends feature.
Be sure to visit the MFT blog where you'll find lots more inspiration!
I'm sharing three cards today.
In addition to all the MFT products used, I've given a few details for each card.
I've made two cards using a stamp set that could possibly be my all time favorite set from MFT to date - Friends At First Sip.
I'm a coffee lover for starters and the all images are incredibly adorable especially the pup image that resembles a Cocker Spaniel. We have a 2 year old buff colored Cocker so naturally I had to color that image to look like him.
For this first card I created the background using the Small Brick Wall stencil and some Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink. I added a narrow strip of patten paper to ground the scene. I used the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics to die cut three hearts from white card stock. I colored each of the hearts a different color using Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides inks.
For this next card I again used images from the Friends At First Sip set.
To help showcase the images, I used the largest die from the new Blueprints 33 Die-Namics to die cut the white and kraft stripe pattern paper. This piece perfectly fits on the front of an A2 card creating a decorative backdrop for the images.
My third card features one the beautiful floral images from the Brilliant Blooms stamp set.
I used Tombow markers to watercolor the flower and leaves. I once again turned to the largest die in the Blueprints 33 Die-namics to create a background panel. I used one of the smaller dies in the set to die cut some white card stock for the sentiment which is from the Beautiful Blessings 2 stamp set.
Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you've found some crafty inspiration today :)
