{MFT} Easter Card Set

Here are my lil Easter Bunnies this morning, all bundled up in their fleece Christmas jammies! Alberta kids for sure ;)

I have a lengthy post to share with you today, so grab a cuppa and get comfy ;)
I wanted to make a set of Pure Innocence Easter cards for our family (mom/dad, brothers and SIL's and kids). We went into the city during the kids Easter break and hit the Space Science Centre, and hubby was sweet enough to map out a scrapbooking store on the GPS and drive through Chinatown to get there! Which is a biggie for him, as he is not a fan of the bumper to bumper traffic and bazillion pedestrians that the city has to offer ;) hehe!

 Anyway, I stocked up on TONS of 6x6 paper pads (the saleslady actually said 'You must be a carmaker!' Ya think? lol!
I picked up this very vintage looking Authentique pad that I fell in love with. All of the cards are made with the same CS (SU) and tied together with hemp cord (MFT), cream lace, brown brads and sponging (Kraft ink- MFT). I really love the way they all turned out! I almost hate to separate them, as if they are a litter of puppies! lol

Here is a picture of them all together. I followed various older MFT sketches and a SSSC from a few weeks ago, I think.

 Here they are, one at a time. For the first one, I used Crazy For Daisies, and Upsy-Daisy and Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics. Hemp Cord and a Hot Fudge button finish it off. I borrowed a sentiment from the Basket of Eggs set for the front. The inside features one of the sentiments from the Crazy for Daisies set.

Next up is the bunny card! I used Bunny Ears, Accent It: Flags and Tags, Hemp Cord and a Kraft Button.

 My third card features One of My Favorite Peeps. This time I added a Whip Cream button and more Hemp Cord. The sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice Ink onto another of the Mini Tabs Foursome die-namics.

Here is the final card, using Basket of Eggs stamp set. I cut her out with Circle STAX 1 and 2 die-namics. The sentiment was stamped onto a Sentiment Strips die. I used Hemp Cord and Kraft Buttons again.

Well, that's it for today! Hope you are all having a wonderful Easter filled with family, friends, food and fun!

Here is a complete list of MFT supplies that I've used on the set:

{MFT} Guest DT Cards

Hey there! Today I have two cards to show you that both follow this months Guest Designer Challenge for My Favorite Things. You still have time to play, and the prize is HUGE and you will be able to join us in previewing a future release!! SO MUCH FUN! Throw your hat in, what can it hurt?

My first card I made for my SIL Jaclynn's birthday. She is pretty girly and loves pink, so I really wanted the pink Razzleberry to POP!! I used some new EP 6x6 paper and SU rhinestones.

I stamped the number 27 from the new set Big Birthday Numbers, onto DP and fussy cut. I embossed the white CS with a big polka dot EF. The flags and sentiment flag were cut using Accent it: Flags and Tags Die-namics. I used Black Licorice ink and Banana Split ribbon. 
You'll also see a Doily Border die along the bottom. I used Sweet Tooth, Sour Apple and Razzleberry CS.

Here is the inside, using another sentiment from the set, some more pretty rhinestones and DP.

 My second card has a completely different feels, but sticks with the sketch exactly like the first. I always find it funny that you can make such opposite cards using the exact same layout!!

I used the new Inspired by the Front Porch: Spring. I stamped it in Kraft Premium Dye Ink and did a lot of sponging with the same ink to give it a warm look. Again, I added some flags with the Accent It die. I added some Hemp Cord and an Open Scallop Border DIe-namic. I used a nice Easter dp pad from Authentique (which I am in love with and have made a complete set of Easter cards that I'll be showing you tomorrow using the same paper!!)
Here is the inside, using another stamp and sentiment from the same set. I used Hot Fudge and Smooth White CS.
