MFT April Release Rewind


Howdy! Have you seen all of the new and fabulous April products from My Favorite Things?  All of the new products are available in the MFT Boutique right now and the design team is having a little Release Rewind party.

I have a couple cards for you tonight; my first features the adorable new Pure Innocence Sunny Thoughts.



I stamped her in the new Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copics.  I cut out some elements from Blueprints 14 Die-namics and then stamped the On the Diagonal Background in Grout Gray Ink on the rounded square.  I also added a little background behind her using Darling Dots on the rectangle die cut.  I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice Ink and then added a few Grout Grey Buttons.


You can find these gorgeous products waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:




My next card features the other Pure Innocence girl, PI I Pick You.



I also stamped her in the new Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copics.  I added some Darling Dots in Banana Split Ink behind her and then added the little flower element from Blueprints 14 Die-namics in Sno Cone Card Stock.


Here are the fun products I used on this card, which you can find in the MFT Boutique:

Tonight I made a few cards using Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Die-namics.



I started by cutting out the different elements from the Die-namics set.  I cut out the frame in Sno Cone Card Stock and then layered the Wild Cherry letters over the top.  The confetti inside the shakers is made of stars and circles of various rainbow colors.  I placed a sheet of acetate directly underneath the frame and then popped it up with foam tape onto a Steel Grey background.  I did add some layered stamping on the bottom panel with the Star Background and the On the Diagonal Background
