My Favorite Thing – Our November Favorite Find

Each week, our designers are on the lookout for spectacular cards and projects using My Favorite Things clear stamps and Die-namics dies. We’re always excited to share just a few of these with you each week. Then, at the end of the month, we choose just one of those projects to share with you as our very Favorite Find of the month.

We all loved this incredible piece of chalkboard, subway art created by Amy Rohl for a Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch.  You can see all the details on THIS post on Amy’s Blog Ink About Me.  Amy wins a gift voucher to the MFT Boutique, just perfect timing with our upcoming December release!

Create Holiday Home Decor

The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our designers to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we asked the team to create Holiday Home Decor using our MFT Stamps and Die-namics.

Even though it’s well after Thanksgiving, I DO have something I am thankful for, and that’s an opportunity to CREATE!

Jody and I spent most of Sunday crafting (and snacking) together, and I had such a great time. I can’t WAIT to do it again.  To create my home decor items I used 4×4 canvas cubes I purchased from Michael’s.

I covered each one in a blend of gesso and acrylic paint. Once the paint layer was dry, I used a stencil to add a pearlized paint accent, and then added a bit of silver Stickles on select dots for an accent.

I sprayed Silver Memories Mist on the Whip Cream card stock I used to cut out the lighter layer Circle STAX panel as well as each letter. It covered evenly, and beautifully!

I coated each Jumbo Snowflake in the pearlized paint to make it shimmer.  Once everything was assembled, I added some 4mm Swarovski crystals as a final accent.

I just love how it turned out!

Here are the links to the products I’ve used today:

Just a quick note about our Metal Adaptor Plate. This is a wonderful add on accessory to your cutting sandwich stacks.  This will increase the pressure that the Die-namics will place upon your cutting material and result in even cleaner cuts.  This plate is highly recommended for use with our more intricate dies.

My Favorite Things Teaser Time with Laina Lamb Design

We’ve been busy behind the scenes preparing for our upcoming November 2012 Release. Please join us for the next seven days for full set reveals, Die-namics previews, and of course incredible samples from our talented Design Team. Here’s all the information you need to know about our upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on November 13 from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can WIN PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on November 13 at 10 PM EST. You’ll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
  • The guest designer contest is going on now! Check out the forum for details on how YOU can win over $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics.
  • If you’d like to see all the teasers for today, you’ll find links at the bottom of this post. Be sure to leave comments as you go for the chance to win one of 2, $10 gift certificates given away daily. The winners will be posted on November 13 just before the release party, on the MFT blog.

Today we’re previewing stamps and Die-namics from the new Laina Lamb Design line at My Favorite Things!  Whether you want to create custom gift calendars, or use this stamp set for scrapbook journaling, or even as a fun background for your cards, I hope you’re excited for the new Laina Lamb Designs: Document It Calendar Basics stamp set.

You can use it alone, or pair it with the new Document It – Days and Dates

This month, Laina adds two really fun Die-namics to her Accent It collection.  Let’s take a look at the new Calendar Components and Story Starters Die-namics.  These dies are so clever!  With a single cut, you’ll get both Die-cut elements, and a fun negative element to use as well.  Here are a few tips to ensure the very best results with these two Die-namics.

  • The dies come joined by a series of thin breakway tabs.  We recommend you twist lightly to separate the dies.
  • Run the dies one at a time through your machine vertically oriented in your cutting stack. This will put the most firm pressure on each spot of the die.
  • If needed, add a shim or  use the metal adapter plate to increase the pressure on the die.

You can see a quick peek at the Calendar Components in THIS quick product video or simply click play below:

You can see a quick peek at the Story Starters in THIS quick product video or simply click play below:

As a follow up to our recently released High-Rise Alphabet Uppercase and Lowercase, we’re excited to share the new High-Rise Numbers Die-namics. This set of nine dies measures 1.5 inches in height.

You can see the High-Rise Numbers in THIS quick product video, or simply click play below:

While you’re waiting for the party, you can head on over and add the Jellybean Green cardstock, buttons, felt and ribbon to your cart.  After all, the ink will be able to join them Tuesday night at 10pm!

Up first is a Stitched Stockings, this is 4×8 stamp set, and the Stocking Trio Die-namics is a perfect companion.

This stamp set features three unique stockings, a primitive themed stitched border, many versatile building images (such as stars, buttons, and hearts) and several heartfelt and festive sentiments. Stitched Stockings is perfect for your Christmas cards, gifts, packaging, scrapbook pages, mini books and so much more.

Stitched Stockings also has dies to coordinate with the three unique stockings in the set.  Stocking Trio Die-namics perfectly coordinate with Stitched Stockings. The lines have been kept simple with these dies so that you can create with felt, fabric, and other textured elements.

Darling Dots is an extremely versatile background building stamp set that showcases three styles of dot row images. Dashed Dots, Petite Dots and Wonky Dots. This gender and occasion neutral stamp set will be something that will enhance any stamper’s supplies and projects.
