My Favorite Things Cool Cup Card

 

 

Hi there! Hope you’re enjoying this festive time of year! Even though I’m all about celebrating fall until December, I do love making Christmas cards early. They’re just so much fun and making them is probably my #1 way to get in the holiday spirit.

So today I’m sharing a Starbucks-inspired card using the Cool Cup Die-namics die set and the Stay Cool stamp set from My Favorite Things. These sets were designed by the oh-so-talented Laina Lamb and I love how they can be used for any time of year. I added the little heart circle icon from the Soda Pop stamp set.

I added some light inking to the top of my whipped cream die cut shape to give it some depth and I love the outcome. Then I topped off my cup with a bit of red baker’s twine!

Hope you enjoyed this little cup-o-cheer card! Be sure to check out the stamps and dies I used at mftstamps.com.

My Favorite Things Sketch #239

Hey there! So it’s my final day as a Guest Designer for the My Favorite Things Challenge Blog. It’s been such a fun time and I’ve really enjoyed creating new projects with their latest stamps and dies! And of course, my dear friend Susan, has said such sweet things about me over on the challenge blog. She really is the best cheerleader and supporter.

Let’s get on to today’s sketch shall we? This is #239 and I interpreted it with a balloon as the main focal circle and some stamping as the accent circle. I had a lot of fun with this using the Die-Namics Blueprints 26 die set and the Birthday Wishes & Balloons stamp set. They make a fun birthday card come together effortlessly.

Here’s how I interpreted it. I used the Hip Clips die set and the Birthday Wishes & Balloons stamp set on this one. I just adore this sentiment stamp set. It’s so whimsical and cute. And I love the way the Hip Clips dies can be used as actual book marks or as fun embellishments!

I loved using some of the Die-Namics Blueprints 26 dies to create a popped-up sentiment and I definitely want to use this technique again soon.

Hope you enjoy today’s Sketch Challenge – can’t wait to see what the other designers create!

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 235

Hey there! I’m here with some exciting news today – I’m the July Guest Designer at My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge blog! How fun is that? I love using sketches in my card designs, so was thrilled to get to play with some MFT goodies and sketches.

I took Sketch #235 and created a bright and simple birthday card:

Happy Birthday Balloons Card | Kalyn Kepner for MFT

I used a yellow, teal and green color scheme to create a card that I thought would work for any recipient. I stamped a balloon background on my focal point circle element and then topped it off with a sentiment banner and two stamped and die cut balloons. I added some white gel pen to the stamped balloons to give them a bit of reflection.
