Welcome! Today I have three more My Favorite Things Stamps October Vault cards to share, all made with the same stamp set, Merry Christmoose. My first one is mostly Copic, except for the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink that I used on the Kraft background. My second and third cards use smaller images from the Merry Christmoose stamps set and are a slightly smaller format from my usual A-2 sized cards. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color all three cards. Supply list and product links for all three cards are below. The top supply list is for the moose card, and the bottom one is for both of the smaller cards. Be sure to check out the MFT Stamps blog for links to a ton of inspiration on these October Vault sets!

Welcome! Today I'm thrilled to be participating in the Pretty Pink Posh October Blog hop. The Blog Hop link list is at the bottom of my post; please be sure to scroll down--there are prizes involved! I have a couple of cards to share, beginning with the Winter Wreath card above. I loved this Winter Wreath stamp set and coordinating die set--what a fun, clean style! I layered one extra poinsettia and three little mistletoe sprigs on top of my wreath for extra dimension. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Winter Wreath images. (Click on the photo for a larger image if you'd like to save it.) For my second card, I die-cut all of my Stitched Poinsettias die pieces from watercolor paper before misting them with water, adding some random color with my Karin Brushmarkers, and swiping the color around on the...

Welcome! It's time to open the My Favorite Things Stamps Vault; once a month, MFT has been bringing back some previously retired favorites. For today's card, I chose the a la mode You Shine stamp set because I love that string of Christmas lights! Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the ALM You Shine image. (You can click on the image above for a full-sized image if you'd like a higher resolution version to save.) Tomorrow we'll have more October Vault Release products to share, so I hope you get a chance to come back then.

Welcome! Today I'm playing along with a My Favorite Things Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge, WSC458. When I looked at this sketch, I knew that I would probably use patterned papers for the three different areas; but I also wanted a simple focal image through which you could still see the sketch's lines. I hadn't had a chance to use the newly released Joyful Wreath Die-namics yet, and I decided that it would be perfect for this sketch, paired with papers from the MFT Candy Land Paper Pack. I used a sentiment from the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set, also released yesterday. Would you like to play along with the Sketch Challenge? Check the MFT Stamps Blog for more details and more sketch inspiration as well! Thanks for stopping by, Continue reading

I used the new MFT Peace, Joy, and Love stencil in the background with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. All of the new October products are now available, and the links below should all work.

Welcome to Day 1 of the My Favorite Things Stamps October Release Countdown--tomorrow is the big day! Today I'm sharing a card using the 'Tis the Season stamp set and Die-namics, paired with the Classic Snow Globe Die-namics and shaker pouch. Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the 'Tis the Season images. I colored a plain white cardstock snow globe base to look like wood grain with my Copics.

Welcome! It's two days until the My Favorite Things Stamps October Release! At 10am Eastern time on Tuesday, October 8, the October release will be live, and all of the new products shown in the past few days will be available. Today I chose the Festive Friends stamp set and Die-namics because I wanted to color that reindeer with the string of lights. I also used the Peace, Love, and Joy stencil on the background with some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink (ink not listed below since it isn't at the MFT online store). Shown above is a list of the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Festive Friends images. (You can click on the photo above for a larger version if you'd like to save it.)

Welcome! It's three days until the My Favorite Thing Stamps October release! Today I chose several images from the Sun-Lovin' Santa stamp set to create a little beach scene. I may live in the land of ice and snow now; but having spent ten years in Pensacola, Florida, I know about those sunny Christmases too! Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Sun-Lovin' Santa images. (You can click on the image for a larger format if you would like to save it.) I hope you get a chance to visit the MFT Stamps Blog for a complete list of designers using today's new products AND to enter for prizes!

It's only four days until the My Favorite Things Stamps October release! I chose the Merry Moments set to work with today; I loved the connection--admiration maybe--between the polar bear and Santa. I used an older windows die, Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics, in which to set my scene. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Merry Moments images. (You can click on the image for a full-sized version to save if you'd like.)

Welcome to Day 5 of the My Favorite Things Stamps October Release Countdown! Today I'm sharing a card using the Birdie Brown Christmas sELFies stamp set and the Ho Ho Ho Background. I can tell that I will be pulling out Christmas sELFies several times in the next few weeks, because it has awesome images! Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the Christmas sELFies image. (You can click on this image for a full-sized imaged if you want to save it.)

Welcome! Today I'm playing along with the My Favorite Things Stamps Sketch Challenge, WSC457. I chose the Flowers in Bloom stamp set to use for today's sketch, combining it with the Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows Die-namics, as well as the Brush Spatter Background and the Bitty Thanks & Gratitude Sentiments. I have limited supplies with me: I'm in South Carolina with my family right now and brought along my bare essentials. So for the little scalloped trim on the sketch, I used my Stitched Ric Rac Die-namics, and covered half of it with my sentiment. (The Stitched Ric Rac is doubled, with Ripe Raspberry peeking out from under Tickled Pink cardstock.) Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Flowers in Bloom image.

Welcome! Today I am participating in My Favorite Things Stamps Color Challenge #126. When I saw the challenge colors for this week, I immediately thought of Halloween and decided to play with the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamps set, picking images that I could color in the challenge colors. (I did add a hint of background color just to make my images stand out a bit, but I mostly followed the challenge!) Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Fab-BOO-lous Friends images. (You can click on the image above for a larger sized image to save, if you'd like.)

Welcome! Today I have another My Favorite Things Stamps September Vault Release to share with you--this one a darling little Birdie Brown set, Sunflower Sweetheart. This cutie has always reminded me of Charlie Brown's friend Peppermint Patty. I love all of the little pieces that you can layer for different looks! Shown above are the Copic Sketch marker colors that I used on the BB Sunflower Sweetheart images. (You can click on the image for a larger version to save if you wish.) I used a BG000 marker and Colorless blender to add some subtle sky to the background. Be sure to check out the MFT Stamps blog for links to a ton of inspiration on these September vault sets!

Welcome! I was pretty excited last month to find out that some of the My Favorite Things Stamps all-time favorite sets are coming around again! I remember purchasing the a la mode Miss You a Latte stamp set and Die-namics the first time around, and I still love this one. I went for a Get Well card here--I've needed too many of those lately. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the ALM Miss You a Latte image. Tomorrow we'll have more September Vault Release products to share, so I hope you get a chance to come back then.

Welcome! Today I played along with the My Favorite Things Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge, WSC455. I loved the Floral Focus stamp set and Die-namics, so I chose that to go behind my four sentiments from the Bitty Thanks & Gratitude stamp set. I watercolored the Floral Focus images after stamping them with Versamark ink and heat embossing with detail white embossing powder. Next I simply stamped the sentiments with Grape Jelly ink and die-cut then with the Skinny Strips Die-namics. Would you like to play along with the Sketch Challenge?

Welcome! Today I'm playing along with a My Favorite Things Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge, WSC453. I loved the Stacey Yacula Piles of Fun stamp set that was released just yesterday, but I hadn't had time to use it until a couple of days ago. A card sketch challenge seemed like as good a reason as any to pull that set out and use it! Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Piles of Fun images. Would you like to play along with the Sketch Challenge? Check the MFT Stamps Blog for more details and more sketch inspiration as well! Thanks for stopping by, Continue reading

(I just sketched the grass in.) All of the new September products are now available, and the links below should all work.

Welcome to Day 1 of the My Favorite Things Stamps September Release Countdown--tomorrow is the big day! Today I'm sharing a card using the Brush Spatter Background, along with the Cafe All Day Die-namics, the Cup of Love Sentiment set, and the outline owl and solid coffee bean stamps from the Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set. When I saw the little owl with outstretched wings in the Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set, it reminded me of the Starbucks Logo lady. So I stamped him in Field Day ink, and then colored him with my G20, G24, and G28 Copic Sketch markers. I also used a couple of Copics to shade the kraft cup cozy (E41, E44, 0), and the white cup (C0, C1, C3). While I have linked the MFT products that I used below, the NEW products links will not be live until release day,... Continue reading

Thank you, Nanelyn! Yes, I used a dark gray cardstock (corrected and added to my luck list now), and I used the side edge of my white Prismacolor pencil. If I had been sitting at home, I would probably have tried chalk or even white pigment ink. But I'm not home, so I used what I had. . . ;-) (I should have called you!!!)

Welcome! It's two days until the My Favorite Things Stamps September Release! At 10am Eastern time on Tuesday, September 3, the September release will be live, and all of the new products shown in the past few days will be available. Today I chose to create with the teacher and apple from the Lessons in Love stamp set, combined with a sentiment and ruler from the Favorite Teacher stamp set and coordinating Die-namics. I used the pencil image to stamp a background panel, and then I added highlights to the pencils with my white Prismacolor pencil. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Lessons in Love and Favorite Teacher images. In addition to the ones that I've shared here, there are more fabulous new products being showcased today; I hope you get a chance to visit the MFT Stamps Blog for a complete list... Continue reading

Welcome to Day 5 of the My Favorite Things Stamps September Release Countdown! Today I'm sharing a card using the Darling Birdie Brown Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set, as well as the Knitted Sweater Background. I loved these little woodland animals! Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Sweater Weather in the Woods images. I stamped the background images with the Trio of Trees stamps set (an older set) just to get some woods texture going on, and then I airbrushed Copic BG02 and YG63 over the stamped trees. While I have linked the MFT products that I used below, the links to the NEW products will not be live links until release day, 10am Eastern Time, Tuesday, September 3.

Welcome! Today I'm playing along with the My Favorite Things Stamps Sketch Challenge, WSC452. Sometimes I immediately have an idea for a sketch challenge, and sometimes I scratch my head for a while first! On this one, I decided to look at my stamp sets that coordinated and had different sized images to fill the different sized circles. Sweet Besties and Sweet Friends, being the same style, worked great together. I did bump the sentiment panel down just a bit so that I wouldn't be covering my images right through the center though. Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color the Sweet besties and Sweet Friends images. Would you like to play along with the Sketch Challenge?
