MFT January New Product Launch



Today is the day!  All of the new January products from My Favorite Things are for sale - right now!  Check out the Brand Spanking New section of the MFT Boutique.

AND to make this day even sweeter, we have some free goodies for you!

Visit each of the MFT Designers' January Product Launch posts linked on the MFT Blog and leave a comment by the end of the day on Thursday, January 9 for your chance to WIN one of two, $100 Gift Vouchers. The winners will be chosen at random and the prizes will be sent out on January 10. Ready? Set. Comment!

I made a set of 4 cards using the new Blueprints 11 and the very helpful Blueprints 11 idea sheet.



I started with a Primitive White Card Stock base and then cut out the background layer with the large rectangle in the set.  I used the wavy banner die to cut out the Sno Cone Card Stock layer and then ran the layer through my die cut machine again to cut out BE HAPPY and the 2 rows of circles. 


 I added lots of background stamping with the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds.



After stamping the background, I cut out the smile die from the Primitive White Card Stock and then cut the smile out again in Black Licorice and then inset it for a nice, bold sentiment.


Here's a look at my next card in the set.



I added the banner in Electric Red Card Stock and then added the little star on the top.


And my last card adds a fun sentiment that overlaps the different layers.



I used some Black Licorice Card Stock to accent the circle border and then popped up the banner over the top.


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!
