Weekly Spotlight 05/20-5/26



This week’s spotlight with My Favorite Things is on the two new label mini-sets, jars (four for $12, 16 oz. each), Eclipse masking sheet packs and new Adornments shimmer brads (8-10 each pink, 8-10 cream, and 16-20 white).  I used one of the new label sets in yesterday’s post.  Today I’ve used the Eclipse masking sheets and shimmer brads.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Drink Alone


I’ve only used post-it notes for masking, and since the little sticky strip is only across the one end, it can be an interesting task at times.  The Eclipse masking sheets made masking so much easier!

I used the girl from MFT’s Call Me set (she’s actually lounging in a chair) and the margarita glass from “Girl’s Night Out.”   (It looks like both sets are currently out of stock but I’m sure they’ll be back soon!)

How did I do that?  Well, first I had a really big drink.  (Just kidding.  However, when my husband saw this, his first comment was “You know that’s all crooked, right?”  Um…yeah…I know.  Rolling Eyes)  

So I stamped the Call Me stamp onto one of the Eclipse masking sheets.  I then cut around the girl, using the negative (chair, wall, phone, etc.) to mask the (cleaned) stamp.  I did not remove the backing from the masking sheet for this step.  The paper clings to the stamp as is.  I inked the stamp, removed the masking sheet and stamped the image onto cardstock.    I then removed the backing from the girl portion of the masking sheet, placed the mask over the girl and stamped the glass.

Shimmer brads are in the corners.
