THREE Days Until the MFT March Release!


Hello!  It's time for the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown and we have a FULL week of fantastic new stamps and Die-namics to show you.   AND we have some fun prizes for you too, so be sure to hop on over to the MFT Blog to see how you can win some MFT goodies this week.

All of these new products will be available for purchase on March 11th @ 10 PM Eastern.

I have a couple new cards for you to night - my first card features Chalkboard Greetings Too.



I started by cutting out some vellum with a Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics and stamped the sentiment in Sweet Tooth Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added skinny strips of foam tape underneath the bold letters to attach the vellum to the card and keep it from curling.  I cut out a Butterflies Die-namics in Sweet Tooth and Insulation Pink Card Stock and then layered it over a Large Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics, which I stamped the Typewriter Text Background in Insulation Pink Ink.


Here are the MFT products I used today - all of the new products will be available for purchase on March 11th at 10 PM Eastern.



My next card features a new, super sweet set, Sunny Day Doodles - Spring Has Sprung.



I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice Ink on Smooth White Card Stock and then used the outline image stamps to add some color to the sentiment.  LOVE this idea!  I embossed the white Fishtail Flag Layers STAX Die-namics with the Mini Chicken Wire Stencil and then added some Gumdrop Green stripes with the Striped Backgrounds stamp set.


Here are the MFT products I used today - all of the new products will be available for purchase on March 11th at 10 PM Eastern.
