Heard It's Your Birthday

Today's card is another sneak peek at one of the sets to be released by My Favorite Things on Friday 9th January. The stamps used here are from "Punny Farm", this is a fun set with a variety of different farm animals including a cow, sheep, pig, chickens, a horse, cat, mouse and a farm girl. It also includes some cute sayings to go with the images. Also used here is one of MFT's new digital paper packs, the pack I used here was Kiss Collection - Pink. These are fantastic because once you purchase them and download them you can print them straight from your computer over & over again!

This style of card is called a "Kick Stand Card" and this was the sketch challenge today on SCS. I have been wanting to create one of these ever since I first saw it on KED's blog last year. But you know how it is, there are soooo many things out there you want to try you don't always have the time to do them all.

The cows are stamped on the white card and masked to stamp the grass (It's a Jungle Out There) and sky. I stamped the cows heads again on scrap white card and cut them out and attached over the cows heads using foam tape. It may be hard to see in my photos, but on the back bottom panel I used my paper piercing mat & tool to create three rows of paper piercing. And of course I used my scallop rectangle nestabilities die to create the large scallop shape which fitted my image perfectly.

My Favorite Things will be hosting a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday night (January 9th) from 9-11 pm EASTERN time. There will be sneak peeks, lots of fun and a chance to become MFT’s next Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum at SCS for more details.
