Simple Thank Yous...MFT August Release Rewind

Hello!! Welcome to this month's Release Rewind for My Favorite Things. You can check out all the new products that were released last week right HERE. Today and tomorrow the Design Team will be taking a look back at this month's release and showing more artwork.


I have two cards to share using this month's free stamp set with a $60 purchase, Sending Thanks.  Here is the first card I made.



I started by using the Peek-a-Boo Chevrons Die-namics across the bottom of a Smooth White panel.  The thick stamped line  is from the Plaid Background Builder stamp set and is stamped in Blu Raspberry ink.  The sentiment from Sending Thanks was stamped in Black Licorice ink.  I backed this panel with three colors of card stock for an ombre effect peeking through the chevrons.  Here is the inside of the card.


The sentiment is from Sending Thanks.  This set has a bunch of great phrases to pair with Thank You (and Thanks, as well).  A chevron image from Sending Thanks and line from Plaid Background Builder finish the inside off.  Here are the MFT products I used on this card.





The next card is also simple, and I put the new Graduated Stars stencil from Mona Pendleton Designs to good use.



I used Eclipse masking tape to mask the bottom part of a Smooth White panel on the diagonal.  I held the stencil in place and sponged Lemon Drop ink on.  Once again I used the Plaid Background Builder for those bold solid stripes in Black Licorice.  To finish the front I masked the top part and sponged Lemon Drop ink on to the bottom section.  The finished panel was mounted with foam tape onto a Smooth White card base.  Here is the inside of the card.


I used more of the same technique and product with a phrase from Sending Thanks.  Here are the MFT products I used on this card.
