My Favorite Things May Release Countdown Day 1


The last day is finally here… What a great release countdown, right?? Do you have your favorites picked out? I have two more cards to share today. Remember all new products used will be available in the MFT Shop tomorrow, May 7 at 10am.


This sweet little bear is from the new Builder Bears stamp set. I love her bow and overalls! I decided to “paint a rainbow” because rainbows are happy, right?? I used the brush stroke stamp from the Distressed Patterns stamp set, and pulled out light MFT inks to stamp in a rainbow order. I used Zig Clean Color Brush Markers to color the images, then the coordinating Die-namics to cut them out. I stamped and white heat-embossed the sentiment onto black card stock, and used foam squares to attach everything to the card front. My final step was using foam adhesive to adhere the card front to an A2 size card base.


My second card features several new items, including the new Mini Staggered Circles Stencil.C49B1C03-A980-40B8-BC59-89FECF21F0CB

On white card stock, I blended Grout ink over the stencil. I picked the kitty and butterflies from the new Purr-fect stamp set, stamped them on watercolor paper, and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes. I die-cut them with the coordinating Die-namics. Next I picked several shades of card stock, and die-cut them using the new Stitched Ric Rac Die-namics. I glued the lighter shades on top of the darker shades, then attached them to the card front. I stamped a sentiment from the Purr-fect stamp set, then trimmed the panel down with a stitched rectangle from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1. I used foam adhesive to adhere the panel to a card base, and added the images with foam adhesive squares.

  1. Such cute cards, Angelica! I love the mini circles background and adore the colors you used for the butterflies on that card. And that little bear with her bow and overalls – so cute. Great release!

  2. I have two professional artists in my family (I am not one of them!). So I would love to own the adorable little artist bear! Your card is so cute! Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

  3. The paint border is definitely on my list. She could not be cuter. Your cards are wonderfully inspiring. Thanks Angelica.
