Hello there – I’m sliding in a couple of cards I made after being inspired by the fabby contest going on over at My Favourite Things! I recently had a bit of an MFT shopping spree after the new release just came out so this was the perfect chance to test drive a few of the latest products!
My first card features the Die-Namics Stitched Cover Up Companion (try saying that after a few Proseccos!!) paired with what could quite possibly be one of my favourite stamps ever – that wee surprised gnome is just adorable! I used the Brick Wall stencil to create my sponged background using distress inks. I used the same colour palette to colour the flowers and the gnome himself. I think this cover up die is SO useful. I can see me using it TONS!
As soon as I saw the samples the MFT design team made with the Soda Pop Bottles Die-Namics I knew they were going to MINE! I have a friend who LOVES coke so was dying to make a card for him for his birthday. The background was sponged with Distress Inks in Pumice Stone and Gathered Twigs. To create the “bubbles” I just flicked on some water – so chuffed how it turned out!
I wish I had time to play with these goodies a bit more but the deadline to enter the contest is fast approaching and I’m sadly out of time! If only I could craft 24 hours a day!!
