My Favorite Things new releases March 5, 2008

Tonight, MFT will be releasing 2 new sets:  Ride em Cowgirl (new mini set) and Punch a Bunch.  Here are a couple samples featuring these sets.

mft happy trails card I absolutely love the way this card turned out.  The body was stamped on different coordinating patterned papers from K&Company Classic K Bailey Mat Pad and pieced together.  Background watercolored and sponged.  Hemp Twine is just the perfect accent for this style.  Added Cowboy Dew Drops that you can purchase at Ellen Hutson’s site.

MFT ms. sheriff card  Here is a Gate-fold card that I used my Scor-Pal on.  This card took some time to make.  I used an exacto-knife to cut out the inner panels and adhered sponged strips of CS….gesh!!!  I used Prismacolor Pencils on this one.  This is my latest addition to my supplies.

Lastly, I used Punch a Bunch set for this one.  This set is really cute.  I have one card to share with you at the moment.  It is a great set for creating cards under 10 minutes (yes…I do know what that is).

mft thanks a bunch card  The middle flowers are cut out and adhered with mini glue dots just to add a little dimension to the card.  This set is made to coordinate with Marvy Uchida Oval Scallop Punches (purple and pink)….or nestabilities would work as well.

Now that I have shared some samples of the new releases, you can join us tonight on the MFT forum on SCS for a release cocktail party.  Hope to see you there.

Enjoy the rest of your day:)
