I've been working with the new sets from My Favorite Things that are being released tonight at 11pm EST. This is such an awesome little set... with lots of cute animals and funny sayings to go with them.
For the first card I made a herd of cows using a mask and stamping some in the background. They were colored with prisma pencils and a blender pencil. I used distressed paper from K&Company for the background and layers.
The second card was also made with K&Company Wild Saffron paper. I cut the vine flourish from the paper, as well as the flowers. The chicken images were colored with copics and popped up on a sponged background. I love the frame from this set because it goes with the marvy pink scalloped square. I haven't purchased any of the other sets out there that go with punches because I really don't have many of the punch sizes. I like this set because it only has the one frame and lots of other images as well. Oh yeah.... the punch comes from the Happy Occasions set being released tonight!
The third card is round (ugh.... obviously!) and was made by cutting a 4.5" square card down with a circle cutter. I left about 1/2" out of the cutter to form the fold, then I cut another circle to mount it on. The background was made with scalloped and circle punches. I added more chickens to this one along with the farmer girl carrying her buckets of scratch and feed... that's me going out to feed our chickens!!
If you like My Favorite Things stamps as much as I do and would like the chance of becoming a guest designer for the month of February then stop by the forum tonight around 9pm tonight. I'll be announcing the MFT Guest designer challenge probably around 9:30... and it will run until 8:30 on Thursday. So create something for this challenge and you might be picked as the next Guest Designer (and this means free stamp sets too!!)
Thanks for reading.... let me know which of these three cards is your favorite!
