MFT Preview 1 — Inspiration and Ice Cream

It’s time to begin previews of My Favorite Things‘ July release!

Today we’re sharing samples using two new sets:

  • Straight From the Carton (WTG), and
  • A very special new set, My Favorite Sentiments. MFT is so excited to celebrate our 6th birthday this month!   In honor of the celebration, we have a special offer for you.  From July 3 through July 31, we are offering the My Favorite Sentiments stamp set at the bargain price of just $6 ($17.95 retail value).  The stamp set is a graphic collection of sentiments inspired by you, our valued MFT fans.  🙂   Please note: One set per customer, while supplies last; no rain checks.

My first sample uses My Favorite Sentiments along with new Designer Labels 3 STAX and Plentiful Petals Die-namics.

I used Amuse Studio Rialto and Burano pigment inks to stamp the sentiment, masking off each line, one at a time and then stamping. The center (sentiment) panel is raised on foam tape while the lower label is stitched to the panel.

Plentiful Petals comes with three different sizes of flowers and flower centers.  I only used the smaller size here, layering a “patterned” flower atop a cardstock flower and adhering with a fancy brad.

On the inside, I took advantage of the flower pattern on one of the patterned paper sheets, stamping only a sentiment (from Big Greetings) in the upper right corner and a couple flourishes (from Finishing Flourishes) in the lower right corner.

My second sample uses our new Straight From the Carton Who’s That Girl set.

I paper-pieced the image, coloring some portions with Copic markers.

On the inside, I stamped the remainder of the sentiment and a couple of flourishes in the lower corner.
