MFT February Release

Hello there!  I'm thrilled to be joining the amazing MFT designers and guests for this month's MFT & Friends, celebrating the brand new February release from My Favorite Things.


Today is the day all of the awesome February products are available for purchase and let me tell you....I had so much fun playing with everything!  I've got three cards to share with you, so let's get started!


First up is a card using a bunch of new goodies - the Super Dog stamps & dies, the City Block die and the Tag Builder Blueprints 7.   I created a shaker with the Tag Builder and adhered some of the City Block buildings inside along with some star & moon sequins I had in my stash.   To carry on the theme of the shaker on my card base, I used Distress Oxides to blend some blue shades onto the black cardstock.  Next I flicked some gesso onto the top portion of the inked cardstock piece to represent stars.  I added more of the City Block buildings to this piece as well.    The final step was to heat emboss the sentiment and add that cute superhero pup to the tag!


Next up is a card featuring the Raccoon Cutie Die, the sentiment flag from Tag Builder Blueprints 7, and the Birthday Cake dies.


The Raccoon Cutie is soooo easy to put together!   And he definitely is a cutie!   I added some detail with Glossy Accents and white gel pen.    A birthday cake, complete with shiny chocolate frosting, was the perfect complement to my little woodland friend's birthday greeting!

And finally, I couldn't resist using the City Block die again.   When I first saw this die, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - create an awesome sky background.  I broke out some orange, yellow, pink & red alcohol inks and created a gradient effect.  


I adhered the City Block die in it's entirety, and then stamped the greeting (part of the new Spectacular Birthday stamp set) with Archival ink and added the gorgeous scripty Birthday Wishes die (this month's Free with $60 Die-namics).

I had a fabulous time creating with this month's new release - and there is SO much more to see!   Head over to the MFT shop to check it out!   Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today - see you again soon!
