MFT September Release Countdown--Day 2

It's just two days until the September Release at My Favorite Things!
Today I'm sharing a card with a soda pop theme with stamps and dies designed
by the incredibly talented Laina Lamb.

I die cut several soda bottles from watercolor paper and smooshed the tops with
a combination of dye and Distress inks. After they were dried, I spattered them
with white paint and adhered them onto a stitched rectangle panel.

The punny sentiment was white embossed onto a strip of black card stock,
trimmed to a banner, and adhered to the panel. The panel was adhered to a Grout Gray
card base and the card was finished off with clear sequins.

designers and leave a comment there for your chance to win a $75 prize!
Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. You are the master of color and balance. I struggle with feeling like things aren't finished enough, and then I see your work and just wonder at how you make it look easy to create and then leave it alone, allowing the elements to shine on their own.
