MFT | August Vault Release | Day 1

It’s time for the first My Favorite Things Vault Release. Each month from now on, we’re opening up the vault, and we can’t wait to reveal what’s inside. With 13 years of experience under our belts, we’re thrilled to re-discover some classic MFT designs, and share them with you all over again! We might unearth an old favorite with a new twist, or possibly a brand-new-to-you design you missed out in the past. We are confident that this month’s vault contains something you’ll love! The release is available right NOW!

Here is my card showcasing the All Stars High Top Die-namics:




Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. The sentiment I used is from the Be Original stamp set (from the newest vault release too). I used Wild Cherry, Smooth White and Black Licorice cardstock for the shoe. The strips at the edges are from the Black & White Stripes paper pack.


Be sure to check out the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have made with the amazing vault release!

Your Next Stamp | August Guest Spot 1

Hi everyone! This month, I’m thrilled to join Your Next Stamp as a special guest. I collaborate with YNS since 2014 and it’s always a huge pleasure to play with their lovely stamps. Also, Karen and Julie are the sweetest! Thanks for the opportunity to join once again! 

For this spot, I’ve decided to feature the Crazy Fun Shopping Carts:




I went for a clean and simple but colorful birthday card. I started by making a top-folded card base using white cardstock. I adhered a piece of rainbow patterned paper that I found in my scraps in the center of the card front. I stamped the sentiment, also from the Crazy Fun Shopping Carts stamp set, to the top of the card in black ink. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp straight. Next, I stamped the funny shopping cart, colored it and cut it with scissors. But there are coordinating dies if you don’t like fussy cutting. The small Oooooo! speech bubble is from the Silly Monsters Chill Out stamp set. I assembled the card as shown and fixed all elements with foam pads for more dimension. It’s such a happy card with all those colors!


Here is the  Crazy Fun Shopping Carts stamp set I used:




If you want to see more projects using Your Next Stamp products, please head over to the YNS blog! You’ll find lots of inspiration as well as fun challenges!




I hope you’ve enjoyed this card inspiration. Stay tuned… I’ll come back with a second guest spot later this month. Thanks so much for stopping by!
