My Favorite Things

It's our wedding anniversary today, so we're out and about taking things easy this weekend so this will be a brief post.   I made this card for my husband - we watch a lot of TV so it seemed like the perfect set to play with.


This is a stamp and die that complement each other from our new brand My Favorite Things.  The Television was die cut from one of our own brand wood veneer sheets and some scraps of card before being put together with the stamped screen (I love the fuzzy static stamp that comes in this set!)  The rest of the card is just scraps from my bits of old paper drawer!   I added another sentiment from the set to the inside - this stamp set is packed full of great ones so I was spoilt for choice.

Whilst I had the MFT stamps out, I couldn't resist the gorgeous Penguins in Paradise so I made another card.

I used vellum and the ocean wave dies from lawn fawn for the water, perched him on a diving board made using the stitched flag die from Lil' Inkers and framed him with a "porthole" made using stitched mat circles.   The sun die is also from Lil' Inkers.   All coloured with copics.




NEWS FROM THE STORE:
  • We have restocks from Waffleflower Crafts and Paper Smooches just arrived along with the new releases from Paper Smooches too.   We already have the new release from Waffle Flower, and the ink pads, but they can't be released just yet.
  • We have the new release (and the last one we missed) from Newton's Nook - it will be live in our store as soon as it is released in the States.
  • The new release (and it's a HUGE one) from My Favorite Things will be here in time for release day in a few days time and we have a few more older items that were requested on Facebook too.
  • The new release from Mama Elephant is also en-route and will be live on release day on the 15th July.

That's all this week folks - time for some quality time with the hubby.
