Release Countdown Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of Release Countdown with My Favorite Things, I'm so glad you're here! Be sure to check out the full reveals of all of today's featured products on the MFT Blog, but before you do that, I have a card to share with you featuring Pinking Edge Rectangle STAX.

The Pinking Edge Rectangles remind me of fabric scraps, so I added a bit of Burlap Background and made myself a faux linen fabric swatch on which I partially embroidered 'grateful' from Thankful Thoughts.

Tangy Orange blossoms from Fresh Cut Flowers anchor my floaty thread. I love them topped with decorative Tangy Orange buttons. 
Inside is a matching 'grateful' die cut using the coordinating Words of Gratitude Die-namics with another Fresh Cut Flowers bloom. 

And that's Day 3 of Release Countdown Week with My Favorite Things. Two more days of peeks, are you ready with your list?! Thanks for stopping and we'll see you back tomorrow.

Release Countdown products will be available Tuesday, September 16th at 10pm EST.

Release Countdown Day 4 - Stencils

New stencils in the house - Diagonal Bars and Scattered Bars!  I used to be a little scared of stencils until I forced myself to just keep trying them, and now I find myself reaching for them whenever I want to add a little extra something, especially backgrounds.  Keep on scrolling to see how I've used them in two different ways for two different looks.

My first card shows the Diagonal Bars Stencil used to dry emboss the Lemon Drop Fishtail Flag.

I also embossed falling leaves in the background using the lovely new (and must have) Die-namics Falling Leaves. Burlap Background stamp was used on the Tangy Orange strips to add a bit of autumn texture.

Inside is a sentiment from Words of Gratitude, another die cut leaf and the reverse impressions of the dry embossed leaves on the card front (I love the both versions).

My second card used Scattered Bars Stencil with white embossing paste. I just love the texture of the embossing paste.

A single leaf centers the embossed layer which has been popped up with foam adhesive for extra dimension. If you haven't tried embossing paste with your stencils yet, I highly recommend it, but be careful - it's addictive!

Inside, a stand alone sentiment from Out on a Limb in Sweet Tooth ink.

Remember to check out all of the new product highlights at the MFT Blog and leave comments for your chance at a $75 gift voucher from MFT. I'll see you tomorrow!

All Release Countdown products will be available for purchase Tuesday, September 16th at 10pm EST.

Release Countdown Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of Release Countdown Week with My Favorite Things. All new products will be available on Tuesday, September 16th, and the MFT Blog has complete details and full reveals of featured products each day with great videos to boot, so be sure to check in there each day.

I am head over heels with today's featured products - Mason Jar Mug Die-namics and Mason Jar Labels stamp set.

Is that lemon slice adorable, or what?! I see a great friendship developing between me and that die, I tell ya.  And if that weren't enough cuteness right there, you also get a straw die as well - it's like Christmas, people!

Inside is another cute Mason Jar Jug label which is doing just fine all by itself, stealing the show.  Love the font!

All this Mason Jar cute-tivity makes me want to mix up a mug of something real good, how about you? Thanks for taking time to hop over today and leave me a little love and be sure to stop back tomorrow!
