Ahoy, Eeks, Hi

It's time to shop! It's time to shop!! Woot Woot! All the new products from My Favorite Things are available NOW in the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique.

In case you're looking for a little more inspiration, the design team has a recap of all the new products. Hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers.

I worked with the fun Cooper Alphabet, part of Laina Lamb Designs, for my project today, and I have three treasures to share with you.

I'll start with this fun pirate themed birthday card. Isn't it perfect for a young boy?!?


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then used the Blueprints 6 Die-namics to cut out the Brick Red base layer.

I used the Fishtail Banners Die-namics to cut out the four Kraft flags then stamped 'ahoy' using the Cooper Alphabet and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Next I stamped Pure Innocence Pirate Boy with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured him with copic markers. I fussy cut around him because I knew I wanted to place him on a Steel Grey background. I used the Blueprints 6 Die-namics to cut out the Steel Grey rectangle, along with the Kraft and Sno Cone flags. I wanted to add some pattern to the Steel Grey panel so I reached for the Plaid Builder Background and Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink. I'm really loving the Plaid Builder Background...really! I finished the front of the card by stitching the circle flag in place and topping it with a Brick Red button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I used the Plaid Builder Background again, stamped with Kraft Premium Dye Ink, along the bottom of the Kraft panel. I stamped a sentiment from Pure Innocence Pirate Boy onto the Sno Cone flag and stamped the skull onto the Brick Red circle for just a little more pirate detail.

**********
Next I have a fun Halloween treat bag.


I used the Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics to cut out the Steel Grey pieces for my treat bag. You'll need to cut out two pieces in order to assemble the treat bag and there's a Paper Bag Treat Box How-To Video on the MFT Blog.

I used the Paper Bag Peek-a-Boos Die-namics to cut out the spider web before I assembled the bag. I backed the opening with Fuse Green card stock and added a black spider web line with a copic multiliner. I covered the spider with black Stickles for little sparkle. I used the Cooper Alphabet to add the word 'eeks' with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink (also before I assembled the bag).

**********
My last project is a pretty floral card that incorporates the Cooper Alphabet for the sentiment. This alphabet is really versatile with so many different styles.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added layers of Kraft and Steel Grey. I used the Plaid Builder Background again, with Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink, to add the stripes to the background.

I used the Splendid Sunflower Die-namics to cut out the Smooth White flower and the Sour Apple leaves. Then I stamped the flower and leaves from Splendid Sunflower with Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink, Kraft Premium Dye Ink, Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink, and Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink. I popped the flower on foam tape for dimension.

Along the bottom of the card I added a strip of Sno Cone for the sentiment, which I stamped using the Cooper Alphabet and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I used the scallop element from Blueprints 6 Die-namics to cut out the Kraft scallop.

On the inside I simply stamped another sunflower, allowing it to bleed off the edge of the card stock.

You'll find all the new products in the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique.

Love the banner with AHOY! He's a cutie and perfect for those hard to do (for me!) boy cards! I like the inside too, where you stamped the skull inside on the little circle tab...cute! And of course, that Halloween bag makes me squeal with delight :)
