MFT October New Product Launch and Release




Oh deer--it's time! You may now purchase My Favorite Things October Release in
the MFT Store. All spankin' new goodies can be found right here.

Before you go, I'd like to share one more project with you and possibly add to your cart!


There's a slew of Die-namics released this month, and I was happy to use as many as I
could on my projects. Delightful Deer was cut from Neenah Desert Storm card stock and
I added some shading with Distress inks and daubers to give them a bit of dimension.

A summer sky was inked on a dome shape, then spattered with water and white paint.
The deer were grounded with a piece of brown card stock with a white embossed sentiment.
The dome shaped piece was adhered to a kraft card base, then sprinkled with stars.



I'd like to share a little boo boo that I made with these dies. I was so excited about
making a card with them that I didn't notice the "holes" in their bodies which I 
thought were highlights.


After I took a closer look at the dies, I realized that I left in the nose and tail tip
for each deer which should have been snipped off before die cutting.
(Insert embarrassed face here)

So, if you purchase these Delightful Deer, remember to snip off the dies BEFORE
you run them through your machine 😉

  37. Your card has such wonderful depth, and dimension that, at first, I thought they were cut out from the panel! An optical illusion... of the beautiful kind!
    You might keep that nose die handy for making fawns with spots, Donna!
