Warmest Wishes

Today, Laurie Willison is here with us sharing a beautiful clean and simple design. She even broke out her Copics and for that, we are grateful because the results are amazing!

Hey there! It’s Laurie here! I am so super excited to be guesting today at My Favorite Things. I have a fun little CAS Christmas card for you today. I don’t know about you, but I have been making more Christmas cards this year than ever before. Wanna know a secret? Shutterfly usually makes my cards for me. What?  (gasp!) I know, right? Well this year….I may actually be sending lots of handmade cards.  I am happy about that!

Today’s card was so fun to make. I am not usually one who likes to color. I love a quick and simple card but when I saw this little reindeer, I knew I had to pull out the Copics.

I used black ink and stamped the image off about 4 times. After cutting out the adorable sweater die, I stamped it for the 5th time with the reindeer image.  It was a super light image but perfect for hiding those dark lines. I used 3 colors of brown and colored in the image. I usually have trouble when things don’t look clean and in the lines but I did my best to let that go this time. I love the watercolor look that resulted.

I added a little red pearl to his nose before matting the sweater with this fun chevron Doodlebug paper. Last, I stamped the sentiment to finish the card off. Oh, I almost forget the rounded edges on the top. I used the 1/4″ side of my Corner Chomper for that last little detail.

I hope you enjoy my CAS card! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas season! I’ll be back again soon for another post! Thanks so much to MFT for having me!

Thanks for Everything

Stephanie is with us today to share an interactive thank you card that’s perfect for most any occasion!

Print

Hi, it’s Stephanie and today I have a shaker card to share with a fun twist. Rather than have a generic space for the shaker part (square, circle or rectangle) I decided to create the shaker component of the card under a word die. To change it up a bit more, I also decided to use vellum rather than clear acetate to cover the sequin area.

ThanksforEverything

I first cut out a white piece of card stock from the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then cut the word “thanks” from the center of it. Make sure to hang on the the little pieces that go inside the letters because we’ll be adding those back into the word once we have the vellum adhered.

Once I had the word die cut, I stamped the bottom sentiment and then created the shaker part. I cut a piece of vellum big enough to fit behind the word and adhered it on the back. Then I added one layer of foam adhesive directly around the word (this helps to keep all the sequins directly behind the letters of the word) and also around the outside of the rectangle piece. I added fall coloured sequins in the area behind the word and adhered a Steel Grey mat (cut slightly larger) onto the back of the rectangle piece to keep all of the sequins contained.

ThanksforEverythingClose

I stamped a Tangy Orange card base with the Romantic Script Background stamp using Tangy Orange ink and then adhered the shaker card panel directly on top. To complete the card, I added some of the same coloured sequins that I used in the shaker part and some silver stickles, to the front of the card.

You can see how this card came together by clicking HERE or by watching below – enjoy!

I hope you give text shaker cards a try – a little unexpected treat that the recipient will be sure to love! 😉 Make sure to tag #mftstamps when you share your projects on social media – we always love seeing what you’re up to!
