My Favorite Things: Release Countdown Day 5

Hi Everyone,

Yippie - once again it is Day 5 of MFT Release Countdown Week, and I've had so much fun with this month's release. For example these wonderful roses and doubble stitched circles and rectangles will be available in the MFT store on the 4th of August ;

I simply diecut the two parts of the rose in smooth White cardstock and then inked the top one with sno cone ink. The botom part was inked with blu raspberry and tropical teal using daubers. I just love the dimension these two diecuts create! You will see ather ways to use these dies by stopping by at my talented teamies' blogs ! 
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 at these great new products that will be available on tomorrow. Welcome back then!

Have a great day, hugs, Karin

My Favorite Things; Ingenious Inking; Resistance

Hi and welcome to a new My Favorite Things    Ingenious Inking hallenge ! This time we have been playing with different kinds of resistance.
On my first card I used a left over strip from another "old" card where I had embossed the balloon string bg with white embossing powder and then used watercolor to create a landscape scene (left). I think this strip created a totally different card - a more strict and stylish version. I think a monochromatic strip - like one left over from my ocean bg on my penguin card (right) would have made a really nice card too!


For my second card I also used heat embossing for resistance and then instead of watercolor used daubers to apply some hybridink: Banana Split, Orange Zest, Jelly Bean and Sour Apple.

Make sure you vist the MFT blog where there are links to my super talented teamies for more inspiration on how to use resistance technique and how to take your MFT supplies even further!

 Please pop over to MFT to check out the latest inspiration from my teamies and leave some love!
