Guest Designer for My Favorite Things | Take 1


Hi everyone,

Woohoo! Finally, I can share my exciting news with you :-) I'm so thrilled and honored to be a guest designer over at the My Favorite Things blog.

When I got the invitation I was totally surprised, overwhelmed and happy! I absolutely love the versatile MFT products and the talented DT ladies always amaze me with their inspirational projects. Thank you so much for having me!

I made three cards using stamp sets with the most gorgeous illustrations.

Like many of you, I'm a huge fan of Torico and her Birdie Brown line – each set is just so cute! Here is my first project:

I created this fall card using the Birdie Brown Harvest Mouse stamps. The stitched frame is from the Blueprints 29 Die-namics set and I die-cut it three times from white cardstock to make it sturdy and dimensional. I stamped the images so they would fit perfectly in the little windows. Next, I colored these adorable mice with Copics, masked them off and did some Ink Blending with warm-toned MFT Premium Dye Inks. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the Essential Sentiments set in brown. The pretty paper is from the Plaid Patterns 6x6 Paper Pack.

For my second card I set up a little kitchen scene with the fabulous Birdie Brown Recipe For Happiness stamp set and coordinating dies. For the background I used the English Brick Wall Stencil and sponged Brick Red and Chili Powder Dye Ink onto some Kraft cardstock. The coloring was done with Copics again. I like to add some dots with a white gelly roll pen. The frame for my chalkboard and the little twig are from the Lisa Johnson Designs Make Yourself at Home stamp set.

The third card is pretty much Clean and Simple but with a little twist. To create a small scene I did some Masking here and there while stamping the images from the London Mouse set. I stamped them with VersaMark ink on Kraft cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I also did some Spotlight Stamping. Therefore I white heat embossed one of the houses again on red cardstock and die-cut a heart (Blueprints 27 Die-namics). Finally, I adhered it on top of the house from the scene. The sentiment is from the LJD Make Yourself at Home set and I stamped it in black.

I had so much fun making these cards and will be back tomorrow with some more inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
