Take Note Revisited...
Introducing Wonderful Words: Teacher and Back to School

Guest designing for My Favorite Things Stamps...

Hi there!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  I'm excited to share some projects with you today featuring lots of brand new stamping goodies from My Favorite Things.  They asked me to be their guest this month and I couldn't be happier to help them spread the news about all of the great new products they're releasing this month.  

I'm participating in their Teaser Time post today and we're previewing two new sets.  The first is Blooming Roses, which is a gorgeous two-step floral set.  Coordinating dies are also available.  The second is a fun geometric set called Trendy Triangles, and it also has matching dies.  You can visit the MFT Blog to see the sets and read all of the details.  

Let me show you a few projects using these sets.  I'm sneaking in lots of other new goodies too...shhhh.... :-)

First up is a basket filled with the pretty roses from Blooming Roses.  I diecut the blooms from assorted colors of carstock, then stamped in two shades of coordinating inks.  The basket die is new as well and it's called Picnic Basket.  


The background was done using a new die as well, called Peek-a-Boo Dots.  It's border sized, but I cut it multiple times to cover my entire background.  The sentiment is from the previously released Birthday Sentiments set.



My next card also uses Blooming Roses along with the new Rose Builder Stencil.  


I used the stencil as a mask to add some Sno Cone inked roses and Gumdrop Green leaves to the background.  That beautiful sentiment is also from a new MFT set being released this month that I'm sure you'll hear more about soon!



My last card for today uses the new Trendy Triangles stamp set and coordinating dies plus a few other new goodies thrown in.  For some reason triangles remind me of the 80's and so does this sentiment, which is from another new MFT set being release this month.


I diecut the triangles from vellum, then stamped the stripe pattern and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I pressed the backside of the diecuts into my inkpads to add color.  I just wiped away the excess ink and let them dry for a few minutes.  I like the way they look layered on top of eachother, the translucency of the vellum lets the layered color show through just a bit.  The sentiment is heat embossed with gold and I added a few strips of metallic gold striped paper from Pink Paislee.  The corners are accented with "washi" diecuts, which is also new from MFT!  On the background I once again used the Peek-a-Boo Dots.  This time I ran it through my machine with an embossing mat so it embossed the dots instead of cutting them.  



Thanks for joining me in previewing some of the new things coming from My Favorite Things this month.  I'll be back next week with more from them!
