MFT & Friends April 2019 Release



Hello everyone.

Today I have the pleasure of inspiring you with two projects using some NEW products from the My Favorite Things April 2019 release. These products are available now in the MFTStamps online store. (CLICK HERE!) to visit MFT and see all of the NEW toys we get to play with this month. Make sure you stop over and read the MFT blog for more inspiration from the design team and all of the friends that have been invited to play along this month.

My first project uses the NEW Birdie Brown Picture Perfect stamp set. This set has both household pets and wild jungle animals to color along with some fantastic coordinating sentiments. I colored up the monkey image from this set three times. I stamped my images with My Favorite Things Extreme Black Ink and colored them with my Copic Markers. I have a Copic Color Map for both of my projects. This is how I share what markers I used on my images. I like to Pin them to Pinterest for later reference.


I used the NEW Photo Booth Strip Die-namics to create a montage of funny selfie like photos. I cut this die from Papertrey Ink's Dark Indigo cardstock and arranged the "photos" in different ways to make it appear like they were doing a terrible job taking selfies. I mean, who takes good selfies? Especially if you were a monkey. I adhered these behind the photo strip die with liquid adhesive to give it a seamless appearance.

I then used the NEW All Lined Up Background to stamp it onto some Stampin' Up! Speckled cardstock, which I love and they don't sell anymore (insert sad face here). Honestly, if I had to make this card over again. I would probably not use a natural cardstock. I feel like the specks distract the eye from the delicate pattern in the stamp. I used My Favorite Things Blueberry Ink. This background stamp is a nice basic pattern that you can use on a variety of cards.



I took the NEW #Captions Die-namics and cut the word "smile" from the stamped background. I absolutely love how this looks. I also cut the same smile and # from the dark indigo cardstock, three additional times,  so that I can layer it and give the sentiment more dimension. I used Nuvo Deluxe adhesive to stick them together.

I also stamped the old and retired Denim background stamp also from MFT onto the same speckled cardstock but this time I used My Favorite Things Grout Gray ink. I cut this piece down to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 and popped it up onto a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base using white craft foam and Scrapbook.com double sided adhesive.

To finish off this project I used liquid adhesive to adhere all of the elements of the card including a sub sentiment and some puffy heart stickers from my stash


For my next project. I used and older stamp set by MFT, but also by Birdie Brown, called Up in the Air. This stamp set features a few animal heads, meant to be riding in the hot air ballons included in the stamp set. I used the puppy a bit differently for this project though... I cut the "hello" from the NEW #Captions Die-namics from MFT Cheveron 6x6 Paper Pack and layered it together the same exact way as before. This time I used Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft behind it.

This adorable bag is the NEW Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics from MFT's April release. I cut it from the same Kraft cardstock and used 1/8 in double sided tape to put it together. The handles, which are included in the set, where put on using liquid adhesive. I love the serrated detail at the top of the bag, it would look cute with or without the handles. The set comes with a few added accessories to dress up your paper bag treat box. I chose to put a dog bone shaped paper clip on mine that I had in my stash.


I filled my treat bag with some paper grass in various shades of green. You can find this stuff everywhere around Easter. I buy mine from the dollar stores and Five Below. I use it all year. I don't care, it's fun. This little treat box was designed for a dog, but you can easily change it to anything for the special animal in your life. These are dog treats from the pet store made to look like human foods. I thought they were a cute addition to go into my treat bag.

My Images were stamped with the same My Favorite Things Extreme Black ink and colored again with Copic Markers. I colored the house to look like children's blocks. I adhered both the house and the "hello" word die with liquid adhesive. These letters are individually cut out, so each letter was glued on. Then I used Scotch 3M liquid adhesive to pop up the cloud and the puppy face.



This cute little treat bag is ready for the little one in your life, even if they aren't human.

I hope you enjoyed my blog today. Make sure you (CLICK HERE!) to check out the entire NEW April release from MFT & Friends post over on the blog. I always have a good time playing with MFT.

  13. I love the Up in the Air stamp set (and I own it!), so I'm excited to see this fun way to use it. And the selfie stamp set is out of this world amazing. I love how you just moved the image to create the classic photo booth shots that show people (or animals in this case) changing positions. Thanks for sharing these fab projects with us!
