Hi everyone!Yay!It’s time for the My Favorite Things October product launch! Today, you can see all new products and they are available right now on the MFT online store!
Here is my card featuring the newest sentiment set:
You’ve probably noticed that calligraphy has made a colossal comeback. Hand lettering is the actual DIY trend. It gives a crafted and a perfectly imperfect charm to any creation. The use of clean lines, watercolors as well as the use of black & white with a subtle touch of silver or gold, are the basics to create any type of logo and elegant layout. This is what I wanted to achieve with this stamp set. I first stamped the sentiment onto with and heat embossed it with . I then created the Christmas bauble using a . I used a C to draw a circle around the text. I also drew a cap and a hanger. I first colored the ornament with and dye inks and left it air dry. Once it was dry, I added a layer of black watercolor (Newton & Winston). As the black is not opaque, it kept the underneath layer still visible. I mixed the black with clear pen glitter to add a lot of shimmer to the bauble (sadly, you can’t see it on the picture above). To finish off my card, I added tiny black splatters all over the panel and I adhered the watercolored panel to a top-folded card base. The design looks like a selfmade hand-lettered old stylish Christmas card. I hope you like the idea! But the set is super versatile and you can create tons of fabulous designs with these sentiments.
