Feature Friday: Charmed

Today I wanted to share a peek at the Charms Die-namics.  If you haven’t seen these yet, then it’s time to take a closer look.  Currently My Favorite Things has five Die-namics Charms sets:  Sea Charms Die-namics, Tool Charms Die-namics, Halloween Charms Die-namics, Pet Charms Die-namics and the Country Charms Die-namics.

For today’s project, I’m using the Country Charms Die-namics.  This is a set of four western themed dies.  The little star was just the accent I needed as the finishing touch on today’s project. I added it right in place using a bit of our new Hemp Cord.    This country gal was watercolored with Distress Ink Markers, and then I paper pieced her little vest from a bit of scrap paper. I’m using Sweet Tooth for my cardbase and then all my matting is with Black Licorice Cardstock.

 Since we have an assortment of charms, how about a peek at a few samples using the other sets?

 Jodi creates a fun sentiment & embellishment cluster by pairing the Halloween Charms with the Notched Tag.

 Barbara hangs the Sea Charms Die-namics from a satin bow using a bit of twine on this sweet à la modes: You Anchor Me.

Inge pairs the Pet Charms Die-namics with the new PI: Prehistoric Girl for a clever sentiment treatment.

Jackie uses an assortment of Tool Charms for the perfect masculine embellishment.

 

I hope you’ve had a great week and that you’ve got something fun planned this weekend.  Personally, I’m hoping to get a lot of stamping in because the weather is not looking promising.  Does it make me terrible to be hoping for a day in my studio instead of a day on the soccer field?  Whatever your plans, have a great weekend, and we’ll see you next week!

25 New Patterned Paper Packs and a Happy Birthday Hoot!

Hi all!  Let me say first, in all caps because I’m yelling from exctiement, I’M STAMPING AGAIN!  Boy oh boy, has it been a LONG time, and I’m so excited to have a little studio filled with crafty goodness to call my own.

First things first, you will be thrilled to know that we’ve just finished loading 25 new patterned paper packs into the store.  You can find them all HERE.  Jody and I decided it would be fun to have a selection of the *newest* papers available for you.  We will be adding new papers very frequently, but won’t be reordering as they sell out, so if there’s something you love, grab it while it’s in stock.

Now that you’re salivating over all that yumminess, I made a little card featuring the new MME Hootenanny 6×6 pad.

I played along with this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge, which you can find out about (and play along with!) right HERE.  I used the PI Owl Costume stamp set and the Award Seal Die-namics, along with Orange Fizz, Blue Raspberry, Hot Fudge, and Kraft card stock colors. Once I popped on my Orange Fizz Buttons, I was all set!

Last weekend Jody, Brianna, and I got to spend some time with Colleen Schaan taking the Copic Intermediate class and I’ve been itching to color all week long.  Here’s a little close-up of my Owl Costume girl.  She is SOOOO much fun to color!

Here’s one more close-up, at a different angle.

Thanks so much for joining me, and have an amazing Monday!

You Move Me

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s always fun to pair my newer Die-namics with my older stamps for a fresh feel.  I’ve been having fun playing with the Bookmark Duo Die-namics the last few days.  In particular, I wanted to do a little mixing and matching to create a child’s bookmark.  I discovered that the sentiment “I’m over the moon for you” from You Move Me was a perfect fit!

I like to keep my bookmarks fairly flat in their design, I don’t add bulky buttons, or ribbons so that the book can properly close. In order to create really durable bookmarks, I always cut each layer twice, once from patterned paper and again from cardstock so that they’re nice and firm and can stand up to repeated use.

I generally use the wider die as the front piece, and then add the skinnier die to the backside so that you can slide the bookmark over the top of the page to securely mark your position.

 Since I had all the materials handy, I went ahead and used one of the coordinating (and larger) sentiments for a coordinating card.  I added the rocket ship with a foam booster for added dimension and added a twine tied button.  The rocket was cut from our new Steel Grey Cardstock and the tiny clouds were cut from Sweet Tooth Felt.

By the way, have you seen our new Hemp Cord in the MFT Boutique?  It’s a fine width cord, which looks fabulous with our assorted MFT Buttons.  Today I’m using a tiny Snow Cone Button.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that you get to squeeze in a little creative time for yourself! Remember that our Guest Designer Contest is in full swing. You can find all the details HERE.

Cards Created Without Pattern Paper

The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where challenge our designers to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we challenged our designers to create a card or project without the use of patterned paper.

Just below, we have a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.  For many of these patterned paper loving girls, this was a little bit scary, but their projects are all so beautiful.  After all, with My Favorite Things stamps and Die-namics you have the ability to create your own custom patterns to bring your creative vision to life.

The girls have some new samples to share below which are linked just below, but here are just a few ways that they’ve recently created using only stamps, Die-namics, ink and coloring tools to create magnificent works of art.

Mona recently added text print details to the Primitive Pumpkins Trio from Own Your Story.

Lisa stamps her own patterned paper using a small stamp in Blessed Mouse.

Barbara creates a gorgeous, dimensional pop of color using only cardstock and Die-namics.

Pre-Release Pep Rally and Die-namics Feature

Now that we’ve teased and tempted you all week long, it’s almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin’ New products from MFT. But first… it’s time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!  Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we’ve saved the best for last.  We’ve taken an in-depth look at this month’s Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.

Before we kick off the Pep Rally we have a few brief announcements:

Up to this point our stamp sets that coordinate with Die-namics have only been available in combination with the accompanying die, but we are now phasing out these combinations, and offering each product independently.

As a courtesy to all of our loyal customers, this month we are offering all three options: Die-namics only, Die-namics Stamp & Die Sets, and stamp sets that coordinate with Die-namics.

Beginning with our October release, we will offer each new stamp set and Die-namics separately. All previously released combos will be phased out gradually as existing stock is replenished.

We hope you are as thrilled with the change as we are, and look forward to having you create with MFT!

Also, we regret to announce that Inspired by Time will not be released in September with the remainder of our line-up. This particular set has proven to be a bit finicky, and unless and until we feel confident in the quality of how the artwork has translated into stamp set form, it will not be released.

We do apologize for the inconvenience, but want you to know that this decision was made only to benefit you; our customers and stores that carry MFT products. We will not sacrifice the quality you’ve come to depend upon, and certainly don’t want you to wait any longer for your beloved MFT fix. :-)

We’ll be back a little later today with this month’s Shopping List.  It’s a handy “cheat sheet” of all that’s new this month.  In just a minute you can head out to visit with today’s participating designers, but first, here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on September 10 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 September 10 at 10 PM EST.  You’ll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
  • If you’d like to see all the designers’ posts for today, please click on over to the MFT Blog NOW.  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 September 10 just before the release party, on the MFT blog.

Check out the samples created by our talented design team members by clicking on each of the graphics below.
