Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!!
Are you excited as I am for this months My Favorite Things MFTeasers to begin??? This release is AMAZING (well, they all are...let's be honest) and I can't WAIT for you to see all the sets coming your way on Tuesday, May 3!
My first card today features an AH-mazing new set that is a must have in your stamp collection, Well Worn Greetings!!! OMG. I am in LOVE with this set!! Want to know the best part? It's packaged with the Die-Namics Well Worn Label Dies! This is a set of three dies that layer BEAUTIFULLY. Believe me, you will use these over and over!!
For my card, I started by stamping a piece of Sno Cone Cardstock with one of the patterns from Well Worn Greetings and then cut it out with the middle die. I sponged the edges for a more, well, worn look. I then stamped the frame onto a piece of Fossil Cardstock and then added my sentiment, "Thank you with all my heart". I layered all of the pieces together and then, in place of the word "heart" on the sentiment, I added a sweet little heart and button combo that I created using the Die-Namics Hearts A Plenty and Die-Namics Button Quartet Dies. I added some lace, vintage brads and sewing and called it done!
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
My second card today shows off the latest in the Fred Bear line at My Favorite Things, Fred Bear Plays Indian! I LOVE him...and the sentiments in this set are SOOOOOOOOOO cute!
I started by stamping Fred and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Tangelo and Memento Cantaloupe.
The patterned paper is from Hello Luscious from Basic Grey and all the panels were sewn on my sewing machine. I embossed the Fossil panel with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder. The beginning of my sentiment, "How..." was stamped on a piece of Fossil Cardstock and then cut out with the Die-Namics Say What? Die. I added some vintage brads on the bottom of my focal panel.
For the inside, I just HAD to finish off the sentiment with "old are you?". Totally cracks me up! I think this card would be perfect for a guy...don't you? The sentiment is layered on cardstock cut with the Die-Namics Sweet Stack Labels Die. LOVE these dies...I use them so often, especially on the inside of my cards. I also added a border with the Die-Namics Open Zig Zag Border Die to finish off the inside.
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
