Hello, Happy Thanksgiving, and Thank You

Last week was the fabulous September release from My Favorite Things and there are so many amazing new products that the design team is doing a little recap over the next two days. Hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers.

I created three cards for today's Release Rewind and I'll start with my sweet Thanksgiving card.

I didn't have a chance to ink up this adorable little Pure Innocence Cornucopia during the release so she was tops on my list.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Berrylicious and Kraft. I inked around the edges of the Kraft layer with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink for a touch of softness.

I stamped Pure Innocence Cornucopia with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. Then I fussy cut around her and adhered her to the Kraft layer with foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment  with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I wanted to keep this card clean and simple but it needed a little something at the top so I used the Party Banner Die-namics to cut out the Tangy Orange and Orange Fizz banners. I offset them a little to create a shadow effect and stamped the Orange Fizz layer with the small dots from Washi Patterns using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

**********
Next up is an all-occasion card using Mona Pendleton Designs Contemporary Roses (yet another set I didn't have a chance to use during teasers).


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base again then added a layer of Sno Cone. I stamped the sentiment from Contemporary Roses using the new Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink.

Then I used the Contemporary Roses Die-namics to cut out the Smooth White flower and leaves. I stamped the leaves with the new Limeade Premium Dye Ink and the flower was stamped using Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink and Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink for the detail. I added a bit of glitter for sparkle. On the Kraft layer I used the Textile Backgrounds stamp set for the herringbone pattern, stamped with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

**********
Last, but not least, I have a very quick and clean thank you card.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base again, then added a layer of Kraft and more Sweet Tooth. I rounded the top corners of each layer with my corner chomper.


Then I used the Thank You Die-namics to cut out the Steel Grey letters and mounted them on foam tape. I used the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics to cut out the Electric Red border then added a sprinkling of sequins to finish it off.

All the new products from the September release are available in the Brand New section of the MFT Boutique.
