MFT September Release Product Launch


Hello friends!

The time has finally arrived!! All of the new MFT May products you have been seeing are in the Online Boutique now! I would have a serious time choosing what to get with this release, because I would have to have it all!! I loved every single thing!




Be sure to comment on all the designers' blog posts tonight for YOUR chance to win one of 2, $100 Gift Vouchers as part of tonight’s New Product Launch celebration!

Tonight I am showcasing an adorable Birdie Brown stamp set and die-namics called Harvest Mouse! Sigh... it's adorable!! I know I say that too much, but what else is there to say? It's so true!!


 See what I mean! Cuteness!! For the background I stamped the Fine Check Background stamp onto Grapesicle card stock, using Grapesicle dye ink. I sponged a bit of Razzle Berry and Grapesicle ink into the center of my white card stock for a background. All of the stamps are colored with Copic makers and adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is white heat embossed onto Steel Grey card stock and cut out with the banner die from Blueprints 20.

I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a few white dots with my gel pen! :)

This cute card features the same sweet set, Harvest Mouse, along with the Prairie Fence Die-namics. I watercolored a nice fall looking background with Peerless watercolors. I cut the fence out of Natural card stock, trimmed it quite a bit shorter for my card and adhered that flat to my watercolored piece. The mouse, leaves, and pumpkins were all colored with Copic markers and adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is heat embossed on Black licorice card stock and cut out with a banner die. 


I'm just in love with that sweet little mouse!! :) I added a few sand Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Whew!! What a countdown of amazing new products!!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT #28




Hello friends!

It's time for a brand spankin' new Sketch For You To Try Challenge on the Reverse Confetti Blog ! It runs the whole month of September, so you have plenty of time to give it a try! Here's a peek of the sketch if you want to join in on the fun!  

Here is the sketch for this month!


And here is what I did with it!


I watercolored my background with Peerless blue watercolors and mounted that onto a horizontal A2 white card base. I watercolored another piece of watercolor paper with greens, let that dry, and cut out the scalloped rectangle die from Love Notes. I cut out the Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts Diagonal Stripes die out of white card stock, and glued this down to the scalloped piece, then adhered them to my card with foam tape. The umbrella was colored with Copic markers and layered onto the circles with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and tucked it underneath the green scalloped circle. 



I added a few 4 mm clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it up!

Be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see what the rest of the team has done with the sketch, and to play along for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of "Fetti Fave". 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)

MFT September Release Countdown Day 1



Hello again!

I am back for the last day of the My Favorite Things Release Countdown! It has flown by and there are only mere hours until all of the fabulous new stamps and dies will be available!


Be sure to check out the My Favorite Things Blog to see a full reveal of today's products, and to see what all the other fabulous design team members have done! All of the new products will be available tomorrow, September 1st, at 10:00pm EST!


So today I am featuring an adorable new stamp set and dies called London Mouse, along with the New York City Skyline Die-namics. It's all about the big cities this month! 


 For this card, I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I usually use Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby, because the texture is so fine and nice, but it is not quite as thick and sturdy as the Ranger, so I used the Ranger, because I was going to be die cutting everything. I watercolored a light wash of blue for the sky, then some grey below for the street with Peerless watercolors. I then stamped all the cute stamps with Black Licorice hybrid ink and watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color brushes. I stamped the Sentiment Labels with Steel Grey dye ink and mounted them with foam tape.



I just love little city scenes!! So fun!

My next card using the fabulous New York City Skyline die!


 I watercolored the background with Peerless watercolors and flicked it with water to get the lighter splotches. I let that dry and adhered it to my card base with foam tape. I cut the New York City Skyline out with Smooth white card stock and adhered it with foam tape as well. I cut a strip of black striped paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack and glued that down along the bottom. I cut some stars from the Star Strip Die-namics out of the same piece that I had watercolored for the background, and glued those above the stripes. The sentiment is white embossed on Black Licorice card stock and cut out with a banner die.


I added a few 4mm clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins!
