My Favorite Things May 2018 Release

by | May 8, 2018 | Alcohol Ink, Backgrounds, Birthday, Blog, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Heat Embossing, Ink Blending, Masking, My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things is just that, some of my favorite things! Every month MFT Stamps releases a slew of awesomeness. They have about everything from cutesy to geometric, ultra girly to super masculine. Stitching? They’ve got that. Innovative and interactive? Yep!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few of the new release items and I’m featuring 3 of those sets for you today. Let’s take a look!

I don’t have sons, but rest assured my girls have been cozied up to pets with grass stained knees more times than I can count. I colored Little Buddies with Copic markers and then die cut them. I heat embossed the sentiment and adhered all components to an A2 folded card base. You can learn how I created the alcohol ink color block here, as this is a scrap from the same session.

I Copic-ed on Neenah #110 Classic Crest in solar white. My go to for Copics. Know that many Copic colors are similar and you don’t need the exact shade to replicate this look. The colors I used were: Skin- E50, E53, E33. Hair- 100, W7, W5. Jeans- YG17, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91. Shirt- C7, C5, C3, C1. Cat- YR15, YR21, YR20, YR000, Y28, R20. Dog- E27, E25, E23, E21, YG17, YG23.

A touch of Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide with a Retractable Blending Brush shaded the upper corners.

This little sweetness reminds me of my youngest, Evie. Only difference really is that my Little has amazingly enviable eyebrows!  I love the simplicity of the Love You a Bunch design. It provides lots of room to showcase those coloring skills. Here again, I chose Copic markers. Once colored, I die cut her (that doesn’t sound very nice!) and popped her up over a Lemon Drop inked Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Background that I die cut with the Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle.

I Copic-ed on Neenah #110 Classic Crest in solar white. The colors I used were: Skin- E50, E53, E33 (my fave combo). Hair- E79, E18, E15, E13. Dress- R37, R35, R22, R20, Y17, Y13, Y11. Flowers- G99, YG17, Y15, YR15, R35, R20.

Awe, Sweet Somebunny! This set was so fun to work with. Little bunny cruisin’ in her snazzy yellow convertible. How freakin’ cute?! For this card I die cut a circle mask and ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Peacock Feathers for the sky. Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron make up the grass. I sprinkled on a bit of water for detail. I used Open Road to bisect the circle, die cut Miss Somebunny, and adhered all components in place.

Again, I Copic-ed on Neenah #110 Classic Crest in solar white. The colors I used were: Bunny- E50, E53, E33, R20. Top/Purse B69, B66, FB2, E99, E35. Car- Y17, Y15, Y13, C8, C6, C4, C3, C1, BG000. Trees- G29, G19, YG09, YG29, E99, E35.

The trees aren’t really colored, per say. They are dotted! I love the leafy effect!
