MFT and Friends Guest Designer

Hi all!!  Today is an exciting one on my blog and for me personally as a cardmaker!  I have the pleasure and honor of being a Guest Designer for My Favorite Things this month!!  Today is release day for the November 2018 release, and it is a awesome one - like they all are!  I am happy to be among these talented designers, and play with these awesome products!



For my card today, I am using the new stamp set Frosty Friends, and the Snowflake Window Die.  I started out by die cutting my pieces that I would be using on my card, and the Snowflake Window is die cut from some Sno Cone Card Stock.  I also die cut a piece of Silver Sparkle card stock from one of the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle dies, and a piece of white card stock using the largest scalloped rectangle from the Blueprints 27 die set.  The banner piece also comes from Blueprints 27!  Such a all around versatile die set!  I set those pieces aside as well as my Summer Splash card base, and I worked on my snowman.  I like images this as they are super easy to add color!

I stamped my snowman in Extreme Black ink, and used my Copic Markers to add a bit of color.  I used BG10 to add some shadow around the left side of his body and blended it out with my Colorless Blender. I used YR09 and YR18 for his nose, RV17 and RV19 for his scarf and gloves, R20 for a little rosy cheek and a small amount of C2 around the scarf where it lays on his body to create a bit of shadow.


I assembled all of my elements together with liquid adhesive and added foam adhesive to add dimension to my snowman.  For my sentiment, I stamped it using the same black extreme ink, and adhered it to my card with foam adhesive as well.  To finish my card off, I used my white gel pen, and added some white polka dots to my snowman's scarf for a bit of interest!  

I love these images so much, so whimsical and fun!!  Thank you so much to My Favorite Things for having me this month as a guest designer!  Truly an honor!  Stay tuned, as I will be partnering with MFT for a giveaway on my YouTube Channel!

For now - be sure to head over to MFT and check out the entire November Release!!
