Feature Friday: Building a Scene with Die-namics

Today’s Feature Friday I’m going to share something I love… combining my stamps and Die-namics to do a little scene building. We’ve got loads of Die-namics that work well for this, no matter what the season.  Our product lineup includes our Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics, two types of Cloud Die-namics, our Teardrop Tree Die-namics, the Sheltering Tree Die-namics, Icicle Die-namics as well as the Branch with Leaves.  Please be sure to check out out full line of Die-namics, to check out all your options.

For today, I put together a beachy little scene with the Pure Innocence: Make a Splash paired with the Catch a Wave Die-namics and put the new Die-namics Designer Label 1 STAX to work. I’ve embellished with the new Photo Corners Die-namics, as well as the Pretty Posies Die-namics,  I added a sentiment with the help of the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.

I hope you enjoy this week’s video, remember you can find product videos on the MFT YouTube Channel.

Feature Friday: Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics

Our designers have certainly fallen head over heels for the new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and have had many samples to share with them.  This nesting set of six Die-namics dies have a huge range of sizes, which means you can use them SO many different ways.

This sample also uses Pure Innocence: Poppy, Rolled Scalloped Flower Die-namics, Rolled Flower Die-namics, the Pretty Posies Die-namics and the Button Quartet Die-mamics.

If you haven’t seen the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics yet, today’s video will have all the need to know information on this fabulous, versatile product. Did you know that the five largest feature a clear backer? Did you know that the dies will emboss a detailed edge with a single pass through your die-cutter?  There’s so much to love about the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, we hope you’ll enjoy today’s Feature Friday video.

If you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to the MFT YouTube Channel found HERE.

Feature Friday: Quicker Cards with Die-namics and Stamp Duos

There are days that I could color, and paper piece to my hearts content, but then there are other days when I really need a card quickly.  Somehow I get the feeling that I’m not the only one that seems to need a card at the last minute for a birthday party, or for a little hostess gift. Right?  You know the old “Honey, I’m going to make a quick card, and then we can go.”  You know what I mean, the eye roll, and your husband’s response of “Don’t you have something in already made you could use for that?”  Please, please tell me I’m not alone.

In those instances, I’m so glad for My Favorite Things Stamp and Die-namics combos.  These sets are built with all the elements you need to put a card together, without it taking the majority of your afternoon.

Today I’ve got a card that I pulled together using the At the Movies Stamp set and Die-namics.  I created a quick pennant with my Jumbo Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and added a Die-namics Pinking Edge to add a fun edge to a coordinating rectangular scrap.  This stamp set is completely enormous, so I was able to select a simple “Happy Birthday” and added the “9″ for mark which birthday.  I love adding custom details like that.

Since the stamp set is huge, I went ahead and finished off the inside too. (Might I add this is a great way to use up your stash of patterned papers?) I used another of the greetings from the stamp set, stamped the mini-ticket included in the set then embellished using the Mini Film Strip Die-namics and the Die-namics Star Border.

Today’s Feature Friday video highlights some of my favorite stamp and Die-namics combinations for quicker card creations. Today’s video doesn’t include all of our stamp and Die-namics pairings, but you can peruse the full collection HERE in the MFT Boutique.

April’s Release Rewind

It’s been a busy week here at My Favorite Things! First we had seven days of Teaser Time, and then our monthly New Release Party over on Splitcoaststampers.  Of course, we were thrilled to add 12 new stamp sets, one new Triple Scoop, and 10 new Die-namics, (including 4 new STAX). On Wednesday, we unveiled the latest of our Wednesday Stamp Club sketches.  And Thursday, shared five beautiful customer projects. It’s been a GREAT week here at MFT!

However, if you missed out on this crazy and fun week, you can get caught up on all the latest stamps and Die-namics in this month’s Feature Friday Video. You’ll get a peek at some of the outstanding samples created by our Design Team, as well as full set graphics. I hope you find a few items that you’d like to take home with you this month, all the new stamps and Die-namics can be found here in the MFT Boutique.  I hope you enjoy this month’s Release Rewind, and that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wednesday Stamp Club

We are moving onto our sixty sixth week of Wednesday Stamp Club sketches. Have you been playing along with us?  Well, if not, there’s no time like the present to just jump right on in and get those stamps inky. I hope that you’ll be able to squeeze in some crafty time in the next few days to join us.  Your sample is due to the Gallery at Splitcoaststampers by Tuesday, April 10th at noon EST for your chance at the weekly prize drawing.

This week’s sketch is a square card with a circular focal point. However, if you don’t have these exact scallop and fishtail elements, that’s totally fine, just get inspired by this week’s layout and play along with us!

Today I have a sweet sample from Jodi using Pure Innocence: Girl and Baby.

You’ll find samples from:
