Create Custom Banners with My Favorite Things

Each month, we challenge our amazing design team to create using a specific technique or within a particular theme.  This month, we’ve asked our designers to put their My Favorite Things stamps and Die-namics to work to create banners.  We have several designers lined up to bring a little inspiration your way you’ll find them linked just a little further below.

Wish Big

At our recent release party, we had a lot of fans asking about our sweet line of à la modes.  You’ll be happy to know that two fun and fabulous à la modes will be joining us as part of our November release.  I had a little time to get to my craft desk today and I inked up the recently released Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.

My card today was created for the Hope You Can Can Cling to Up in the Air Challenge – this challenge features things that can be up in the air be it birds, planes, butterflies etc.  For me, it’s birthday balloons!   You can find all of the Hope You Can Cling to challenges on THIS forum on Splitcoaststampers.

I’ve accented with the Nightshift Navy Cardstock and Buttons.  I really do adore this color, and I’m finding navy in so many of my new patterned papers.

Lately, I’m a wee bit obsessed with the recently released Flower Medley Die-namics.   I love how easily they mix and match with an assortment of materials for a variety of looks.  I’ve added a bit of the new Hemp Cord to thread the button. 

Here are the links to the products I’ve used in my card today, but please see below for additional projects created using stamps from  à la modes collection!

The winners will be posted on October 16 just before the release party, here on the MFT blog.
Last month’s Triple Scoop stamp set, Clearly Sentimental about Coffee will be available for individual purchase along with our October Release.

This month’s Triple Scoop Reward is titled Seasonal Sentiments. It includes eleven beautifully designed sentiments.

I’m so excited to introduce the Beautiful Bows Die-namics. This is a six piece Die-namics which you can use to build fabulous multi-layer bows from a variety of materials such as paper, fabric or felt.

You can see how to assemble the Beautiful Bows in THIS quick product video or simply click play below.

We’re also pleased to introduce the Framing Flourishes Die-namics.  This die creates elegant flourishes in two sizes.

You can see a quick product video for the Framing Flourishes HERE or simply click play below.

Have you tried our Metal Adaptor Plate? It helps your die-cutting machine cut more intricate designs such as the following designs from this release; Sunflower Die-namics, High-Rise Alphabet, and the Framing Flourishes Die-namics.

You’ll find that when using the adaptor plate, paper pieces in the center pop out more easily, your die-cut is more easily removed, and you’ll find the increase in pressure makes your cuts even better.

Some helpful tips include:

  • Break apart your Die-namics instead of cutting all at once to increase pressure in your machine
  • Use our metal adaptor plate for more intricate designs (or anytime you want extra pressure)

Feature Friday – Vanity License Plate

Happy Friday!  I’m here to share a quick project using the Vanity License Plate Die-namics and Stamp Set.  It’s great for quick cards, which you can personalize for just abut any occasion.  Today I’ve got a card to share for what I consider to be the most difficult audiences, ‘tweener boys.  They’re too old for a “cutesy” type card and where ‘tween boys are considered, I have to also leave out my frilly accents, like bows and scallops.

I’m using one of my favorite new cardstock colors, Gumdrop Green which I’ve paired with Whip Cream Cardstock, a Black Licorice Button and our new Hemp Cord. It’s a fun substitute for my normal, fun fluffy bows.  I’ve grabbed my current favorite Die-namics, the Fishtail Flags STAX and went digging through my scrap bin for assorted pattern papers.

To get perfect placement every time, I like to line up my clean stamps on the die-cut beginning with the center position and moving out  towards the edges.  Then, I move just one letter at a time to the backside of the block, ink it, stamp it and then clean and remove it back to the other side of the block. I’ll then repeat for each letter, moving one letter at a time to the alternate side of the block, inking, stamping and then cleaning and moving over the next letter.  HERE is a quick video showing how I would combine the stamps with the Vanity License Plate Die-namics.

My first sample today was for a ten year old boy, but I’ve got a few other samples to share from our Design Team showing other ways to use this stamp set, and a few other fun sentiment ideas.

Here’s a few more ideas, but I encourage you have fun playing around to make your own unique ideas too!

Thanks for joining us today, have a wonderful weekend and we’ll see you next week.

Remember, teasers for our October Release start on Wednesday!

Hope You Can Cling To

Today we’re here to help spread the word about Splitcoaststampers 3rd annual Hope You Can Cling To.  It is a full 31 days of awareness and challenges to support a card drive to support cancer patients and their families. It all begins today,  Monday, October 1st, and you’re all invited to play along!

Please join our friends at Splitcoaststampers for as many days as you can, all throughout October and send your finished cards along to the The MD Anderson Cancer Center.  The cards are so very appreciated.  Follow along on the Master Challenge Thread which can be found HERE and find answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions HERE.

Today I’ve got a sample to share for my friend Beate’s Challenge – be sure to head on over to her challenge thread for all the details.  I’ve paired the Sew Nitfy Stamp set and Die-namics with the new Steel Grey Cardstock and Ribbon.  I wrapped the spool with Stone Twine.   The small tag was created with the Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX and finished off with a Pink Lemonade Button which was threaded with our new Hemp Cord.

We hope to see you over on the Hope You Can Cling To section of Splitcoaststampers!
