Happy Thursday!  I am so excited to be guest designing for My Favorite Things blog today.  If you have stopped by my blog in recent months, you KNOW I am a huge fan!   I have two cards to share with you today.

For the first card I started with MFT Black Licorice, Lush Lagoon, Ripe Raspberry, Summer Splash, Limelight Prestige, and Lemon Drop card stocks.  I am just over the moon with all the new MFT colors!  The card base is black licorice.  I die cut another black licorice panel using Blueprints 13 for the stitched edging.  Then, I used the newly released Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Square Stax to create an inside out stitched frame.  I stamped the bottom of this panel with Keep on Rockin' stamp set using versamark and clear embossed for a cool effect.  

For the sentiment I used Blueprints 11 and die cut the "You Rock" in black licorice and limelight prestige card stocks.  I stamped the limelight prestige sentiment with Sheet Music background with Premium Limelight Prestige ink.  I glued the two panels together slightly offsetting the black for a shadow effect.  I glued the sentiment behind the inside cut out frame panel popping the letters on the outside of the frame's edge for added interest.  I popped up the entire black licorice frame using Foam Mounting Tape and inserted the cut out interior frame to recess behind for added detailing.  To complete the card, I die cut several of the smaller headphones that come in the newly released Headphone die namics and arranged on the card.  So COOL and totally ROCKS! 

For my second card, I went in a completely different direction.  This is what I love about MFT stamps and die namics.  There is just so much versatility and style options with these products.  I started with MFT Smooth White, Summer Splash, Cherry Crisp, and Coral Crush card stocks.  Have I mentioned how much I love the new colors?  I die cut the coral crush panel using the stitched frame from Blueprints 15.  I stamped this panel with Harlequin Background stamp using Premium Coral Crush ink.  I  die cut the summer splash using Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Staxs.  

I stamped this panel using Linen Background in Premium Summer Splash ink.  I used Foam Mounting Tape to pop up this panel.  Next, I die cut the cherry crisp panel using Horizontal Stitched Strips die namics. I stamped this panel using Pinstripe Background in Premium Cherry Crisp ink.  I die cut the smooth white card stock with Pierced Circle Stax.  I stamped the sentiment from Spring Tulips stamp set in the center using Hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I offset the circle die and used Foam Mounting Tape to pop it up a bit for added dimension.   I die cut the Spring Tulips die namics and stamped with the coordinating image from Spring Tulips stamp set and colored with copics.  I popped the tulips up as well using a bit of Foam Mounting Tape.  I finished my card with a few sequins which were easily placed with the QuikStik Pick-Up Tool.  I used this tool all of the time! 

That is it for today!  Check back later in the month for another post!   Many thanks for My Favorite Things for asking me to showcase their products!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
