Freebie Friday – My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things Shaker Card by Jen Walker

Hello Scrapbook Expo friends! We are back today with another great giveaway from one of our friends. This week, I had the pleasure of working with stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. I really enjoy working with clear stamps that have coordinating dies. These coordinated sets make it much easier to cut out the small characters that are so fun to work with.  For these projects, I worked with the Birdie Brown You Gnome Me stamps and dies, Pure Innocence Heart Bouquet stamps and dies as well as the Die-namics Blueprints 23 set.

My Favorite Things


I started off by die cutting a series of items on white cardstock and stamping their coordinating images onto the cut shapes.

I then used my blendable colored pencils to colour a series of images. I always colour more than I am going to use so I can see how the different colours affect how the characters will look on the white and/or coloured cardstock base. It also means I have lots of images for later as well 🙂

My Favorite Things Extra Images


On this first card, I used the large rectangle panel to mount the image and sentiment. I really like how the rectangle has the appearance of stitching on both the top and bottom edges.

On this next card, I added a few enamels dots to the coloured images to add a little bit of dimension to the card. hehe … I love this sentiment … “You Gnome Me So Well.”

Mt Favorite Things Gnome Card


For this last card, I created a shaker card.  I started by cutting the navy cardstock piece to the full size for mounting on the card base and then used the rectangle panel die to create the opening space.  I adhered a single red heart on to the heart bouquet that the little girl is holding. I then filled the shaker space with matching foil hearts. The sentiment was stamped using a rainbow stamp pad and is raised on foam dots above the clear acetate piece of the shaker.

This last project includes a few project life style cards. Given that I have been filling my albums with a combination of both 12×12 layouts and pocket pages, I often create 2×3 and 4×6 project life style cards that I can use later.

As soon as I saw the Birdie Brown stamps, they reminded me of moments with my kids when they were small. The card on the left reminds me of my daughter when she was small. She loved to wear orange and used to pick flowers from our garden and bring little bouquets to me all the time. I can’t wait to find one of her photos to use with this card!

So there you have it. Wasn’t that fun! I am a new fan of the Birdie Brown and Pure Innocence collections.

    This is such a great give a way. I enter so many but never win. If I am lucky enough to win this one, I think I would love some from the pet and animal collection. Maybe something from winter as a second choice. They are all so special it would be hard to choose.

I love this company and am slowly but surely adding to my stash. Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize.

  20. Doreen says:

    Love the gnome stamps. My husband is obsessed with gnomes. I would make a Father’s Day card with gnomes for him.

  21. Kim K says:

    Oh my!! I think I might just have to get this set! I was just at Scrapbook Expo in Puyallup over the weekend, and bought some gnome brads from Eyelet Outlet! My brother-in-law is a gnome collector, and his birthday is in May. Would be so perfect for him!

  22. Rebecca Yahrling says:

  23. Bernette says:

    I would pick the hightop sneakers die set and the coffee cup stamp /die set they are so cute .

  24. Lisa Norstrom says:

    Oh my gosh – if I won I would without a doubt have to get the Super-boy stamps and matching dies to go along with the “You’re Super” ones that I already own! Then I would probably have to get some MFT stencils because they have the coolest stencils ever!!! I think the brick wall stencil would go good with those super hero sets – Hmm – my wish list keeps growing!!!

  25. Stephania N says:

    Wow – I’d never been to their website before to see how much they have! I would probably get the Die-namics Blueprints 13. Finding ways to journal, other than on a plain white square of paper, is a problem for me. With something like the blueprint dies, I would be able to dress up the journals in a cute way.

  26. Sharon Allison says:

    I love the Pure Innocence set, so many cute, fun stamps from MFT that it is hard to chose. All your cards are adorable & I love the colours!

  27. Nancee James says:

    I’m just building up my stash of dies and I really like the fishbowl set, it would coordinate well with some of the stamps I already have.

  28. Christi Steinbeck says:

    I would love to have the LJD words of inspiration set. I am disabled and I know what it means to me to receive a card with words like that so I like to make cards with those same kind of words and send them to others in need and brighten their day, Paying it forward is what I say. You never know when your words may save a life. 🙂

  29. Sherri Yoho says:

    I love many, many of your products – it is really hard to choose!! I would be happy with anything! I like the Pure Innocence series, the stitched stax dies, Birdie Brown stamps & dies and most any of the word stamps. 🙂

  30. Laurie Erlandson says:

    I would love to get the heart balloon dies, the bicycle die, the tool dies and some adhesive sheets…….to start : D

  31. Cynthia says:

    I would get the pet stamps BB You Make my Tail wag and BB you have my heart. Also love all the pet dies. My dog is my baby so I love everything to do with pets.

  32. Valerie Breingan says:

    I’d definately have a hard choice here but my order would start with the YOU GNOME ME SO WELL AND ENDED WITH ANY OF THE LAST FOUR BLUEPRINTS,BUT DEFINATELY this stamp an dies

  33. jamie thrush says:

    love the cards and the ideas of stamp and dies the ones I like are the You gnome me and then I would move on to the Stencil sets that I have started to love more and more I would start with Stencil MPD Winged Beauties, move on to the fishnets and waves, and so many more that I want
