Today I get to announce my newest My Favorite Things stamp set called Be Your Best Self. This is part of the December releases that will all be shown over the next seven days. So visit the MFT blog daily to see the announcements of new sets each day and link to all of the design teams awesome creations (and I've seen some of them and am in awe of the talent on this team!). So with that introduction, here is my newest stamp set:
This set contains four images - all quotes. It is my first smaller set - 4x6, so that means less expensive to purchase! I hope you like these quotes that are all tailored for new year projects. Here is my first project using them:
This card also uses another set of products from today's release - the LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers. I LOVE THESE! I used both the die-namic set and the stamp set (links below in my supply list).
To make the flowers, I die-cut them from both Lemon-Drop cardstock and Sour-Apple cardstock. Next, I stamped the images on each set of flowers using Limeaid ink on the green and Lemondrop ink on the yellow. I cut the flowers off the yellow die-cuts and attached them over the green die-cuts. I then used Copic markers to shade the yellow and green stamped portions. Last, I added outlines and details using a fine-tip black marker. I popped some up with pop dots.
For the sentiment, I stamped it in Black Licorice Ink on Smooth White cardstock. I then outlined it in black (twice and then put little lines between the two black outlines) and then used Copic markers to both color it in and to add a border around the edges. I used a punch to round the corners and mounted it on the scallop edged frame in the Die-namics Blueprint 1 set. (oh how I am loving playing with all these new MFT products I have ordered!).
The inside of the card uses another one of the wildflowers and the rounded/embossed edged rectangle from the brand new Blueprints set called Die-namics Blueprint 10. I cut the "you" from the word Be-You-Tiful that was in my first stamp set, Celebrate Life. I colored it in with Copics and added some more lines and words to finish off the inside.
Come back daily for the next seven days to see creations using my new set. Also don't forget to visit the MFT blog to link to all of the DT blogs.
