Post-it note

Hi everyone! Here is a non-cute card that I want to share with you:





The "Hugs" sentiment is from the Avery Elle Sending you stamp set. I stamp it on a post-it! Fun, isn’t it? I added a tiny heart with red ink and put some Glossy Accents on it. I also made the background paper by myself with the Basic Backgrounds from Dylusions by Dyan Reaveley that I stamped with white pigment ink on black cardstock.

Have a wonderful day…

My Favorite Things – Do all you can…

Hi everyone! Today, I’m back with a new card using My Favorite Things stamps! Here is my card: 





The quote "Do all you can to make your dreams come true" is from a MFT stamp set called Winged Beauties. The cutie is from the newest Birdie Brown stamp Mon Chéri set. I colored her with Polychromos on kraft paper, using the no-line technique. To stamp an image for the no-line technique, you can use MFT inks like In the Buff or Insulation Pink.

MFT September Product Launch

Hi everyone! Yay! It’s time for the My Favorite Things September product launch! Today, you can see all new products and they are available right now on the MFT online store!

I’ve made 2 cards showcasing the Streetlights Die-namics and the London Skyline Die-namics: 





For the first card, I’m featuring the newest Streetlights Die-namics. To create the background, I used the FABULOUS English Brick Wall stencil (another favorite) that I sponged with MFT dye inks: In the Buff, Natural, Hot Fudge and Orange Fizz. The happy day sentiment is from the Label Marker Sentiments set. 




For the second card, I sponged the background with MFT dye inks (Daffodil, Orange Fizz). Then I sponged again orange over the Grid stencil. The sentiment is from the new Thanks so very much set and the view of London is a die-cut from the London Skyline Die-namics.

Here is what I came up with: 





I got inspired by the design, the colors and the watercoloring!!! First, I white heat embossed the background with the "Simply Circles Background" stamp from My Favorite Things. Then I watercolored the circles with Distress inks: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Barn Door, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feather and Faded Jeans. The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set called "Hello Sunshine"! It’s one of my favorite sentiment!

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on September 1st at 10pm EST (= Europe: September 2nd at 4:00 CET).

Here is my card showcasing the newest Soda Pop Bottles Die-namics and stamp set: 





I die-cut two bottles for the Soda Pop Bottles set that I sponged with dye inks: Daffodil and Orange Fizz, Bubblegum and Razzle Berry. I then spritzed some water onto it to make the ink react. For the background, I used one of my favorite stencil ever: the Concentric Circle Grid is also from the newest collection. Another must have for me!  I heat embossed the fun sentiment from the Soda Pop stamp set onto black cardstock with white embossing powder.
