My Favorite Things Release Countdown Day 1


Welcome to the final day of Release Countdown with My Favorite Things. I'm so excited because all the new products will be available for purchase tonight at 10pm EST. 
 

 
I'm in love with the new Paw print background stamp and to get to pair it up with super cute pet dies is a Dream!


 
For my next card I used the new Paw stencil and masked a heart Before I inked it with some distress inks. I Think it created a nice backing to the super adorable dog which is actually doing something else (!) but also looks like he's really happy, jumping with joy!!! The happy dies is from a set of 3 happy dies of different sizes - so useful!

Garlics


Oh, how much easier it is to loosen up when you use scrap paper - or think you do (-: I played around with these garlics on a piece of thin paper that I found among some other scrap papers I'd bought at a local paper store here in Gothenburg. It felt like it would be good to paint on so I did and I really liked the way it absorbed the paint.



So with hopes of buying a whole packet of this paper to practice on, I went back to the store. It turned out that that paper was even more expensive than my best Arches paper )-:

If you want to see more of my watercolors you can either click the "My Watercolors" button in the top list or in my Watercolors file on Pinterest; http://www.pinterest.com/peppermint42/watercolors


 (OBS - the paintings there are not only by me, though I wish because I've collected some favorites)

Have a great Sunday, hugs, Karin

And the dog set; bb-you-make-my-tail-wag equally fun and cute!!! I smile every time I look at this little guy! The brick bg is created with a new large bg stamp and I know I will come back to this one over and over again!

My Favorite Things: Release Countdown Day 5

Hi Everyone,

It's Day 5 of MFT Release Countdown Week, and I've had lots of fun with some new dies and stamps called die-namics-circle-scribble-flowersdie-namics-scribbles and ljd-circle-scribble-flowers;





As you will see in my upcoming release posts I am absolutely IN LOVE with the die-namics-inside-and-out-stitched-rounded-square-stax - so beautiful and so perfect for so many projects. 



You can make these flowers as elaborate or as simple as you want - endless possibilities. For my flowers here I simply diecut, stamped and inked my flowers using inkblenders. The dots in the center  of my flowers were created with the small dot dies in the candy jar dienamics set. I colored them and then added glossy accent to create my own dot accents. 




Complete product details, videos and links to all designers playing along with today's featured products can be found at the MFT Blog.

I hope you're enjoying all of the sneak peeks of these great new products that will be available on Tuesday!
