Make a Wish 80

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, April 30, 2013 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , , , , ,

Happy May! Today kicks off the first day of the May MFT Teasers.  The new products will be available on Tuesday, May  7th at 10 PM in the MFT Boutique. I have an ENORMOUS secret to share with you that I have had to keep a lid on for nearly 3 months!!! Here we go... Kim van der Sanden, the Owner of My Favorite Things has given me the once in a lifetime opportunity to design a line of products for My Favorite Things!!! Words can not even describe how honored, blessed and fortunate I feel! Kim is one of the most kindest and generous souls I've met and is such a pleasure to work for. I could not have done this without all the support, encouragement and patience from Kim, Jody Morrow as well as from my sweet loving husband, Scott. I wouldn't want to count the number of emails, number of hours spent on the telephone with Jody and countless hours that Scott has selflessly devoted to helping me make this happen! xoxo
My product line is: "Mixed Media for the Modern Crafter" and this month I would like to introduce you to my very first versatile MFT products which includes stamps, dies and stencils. ALL may be used for ANY style of stamping / crafting and on ANY type of project ie: cards, layouts, art journal pages, altered items, etc... the possibilites are endless.

Today, I am sharing a few projects made using:

Dandelion Wishes which contains a variety of fun Dandelion images with an artsy / abstract vibe as well as an assortment of versatile sentiments.
Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics which coordinates with Dandelion Wishes or may be used alone:
Distressed Background Blocks is just that, a versatile set of background stamps:
Two of the three stencils that I am introducing this month are: the Square Motif Stencil:
and the Graduated Dots Stencil:
First up, is a layout featuring Dandelion Wishes, Distressed Background Basics and the Square Motif Stencil. I first created the background using the Square Motif Stencil along with Gesso. Once dry, I misted the entire canvas portion of the layout with mist that I made using Kraft ink. Once that was dry, I randomly misted using mists made from a few drops of: Black Licorice, Razzle Berry and Kraft inks. I wanted the Square Motif design to pop a little more so I placed the stencil back on the layout and applied white acrylic paint mixed with molding paste. 
I stamped a trio of Dandelions from Dandelion Wishes on die cuts made using dies from Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics. The sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes and was stamped on an oval die cut made using a Die-namics Oval STAX Set 1 die then layered on a label that was made using a Die-namics Designer Labels 2 STAX die. 
I randomly stamped the background using the chicken wire stamp from Distressed Background Blocks:
I also have a few cards to share featuring a combination of stamps from both Dandelion Wishes and Distressed Background Blocks along with various dies from Die-namics Blueprints 3 ~ which I LOVE and you will surely be seeing ALOT of over the next week! On my first card, I used the same sentiment as on the layout just to show how easily you can make any sort of project using Dandelion Wishes.
I heat embossed a seeding Dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes:
as well as the checkerboard pattern from Distressed Background Blocks
The second card features more images from Dandelion Wishes and Distressed Background Blocks. The sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes and was stamped on a die cut made using Die-namics 
On this card, I heat embossed a blooming dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes 
along with the polka dot pattern from Distressed Background Blocks: 
Here are my homemade papers that I used to create the cards shown today. I used both the the Graduated Dots Stencil, the Square Motif stencil, the Gelli Arts plate and various colors of Martha Stewart pearls acrylic paint.
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my projects today!
Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has created. You'll also read about some HUGE prizes being given away this week during Teaser Time that you won't want to miss!
Be Sweet ;)
