MFT Release Rewind - Mason Jars: Part 2

Welcome to the September Release Rewind with My Favorite Things. We're showing off a few more projects focused on products from the new release this past week, and after my New Product Launch focus on the new Die-namics Mason Jar, I literally could not stop creating with it. I hope you enjoy a few more of my Mason Jar ideas.

Inside the bracket frame from Blueprints 19 you'll find a trio of Halloween Mason Jars, each a different size. I was able to modify the height of the mummy and Frankenstein jars by cutting each full size jar again with the lower edge of the Mason Jar Die-namics.

I then dressed up each jar using Fishtail Flag STAX (mummy wrap), Grassy Edges (Frank's hair), High-Rise Alpha (letter T for neck bolts), Spooky Scene (boo), Fine Check Background and a fun Grape Jelly leaf from Falling Leaves. Who says leaves can't be purple?!

I think this will make a fun addition to my Halloween decorations this year.

My second project is a clean and simple card with a bit of texture added with the Scattered Bars Stencil dry embossed on a Steel Grey Mason Jar.

In keeping things clean and simple, I die cut 'thankful' in the same Primitive White as the card base and then gave it a little bend before adhering it directly to the card base with liquid glue.

One final look at the Falling Leaves maple leaf tied to the jar with Hemp Cord and a better view of the embossed detail.

Thank you for stopping by today for Release Rewind. Remember to stop over at the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along today, and have a great weekend!

MFT New Product Launch - Mason Jar Die-namics

Welcome to the New Product Launch with My Favorite Things! All products from this release are NOW AVAILABLE for purchase at the MFT Store. Check out the click-n-shop links provided at the end of this post for your shopping convenience.

I have 3 cards to share with you tonight featuring the Mason Jar Die-namics, so let's take a look!

My first Mason Jar comes in the form of an apple for the teacher. A sentiment from Mason Jar Labels was clear embossed for a tone on tone look and the die cut lid adds a touch of wood, just like an apple stem.

I pulled out the leaves from the Red Delicious Die-namics, die cut two of the smaller leaf from Gumdrop Green card stock and tied them onto my jar using Hemp Cord.

Mason Jar number two is a candy cane Christmas version using Striped Background in Red Hot ink and Gumdrop Green buttons.

I'm really loving the curly font used on 'Cheers' from Mason Jar Labels. Just the right look for this clean and simple card.

And finally, my glizty-glam Mason Jar, striped in gold and topped with an anchor from World Traveler.

I decided to leave off the Mason Jar lid on this one and simply tied up the jar threads with Hemp Cord.

And there you have another look at Mason Jar Die-namics which is NOW AVAILABLE at My Favorite Things! Direct shopping links are available below for all three cards.

MFT is giving away 2 - $100 vouchers for the MFT Boutique! Winners will be chosen at random from comments left at any of the MFT Design Team blogs between now and Thursday, September 18th around noon. Good luck!

Release Countdown Day 1 - Cute Critters

Thanks for stopping by for Day 1 of the Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! Tonight at 10pm EST you'll have full access to all of the products we've been tempting and teasing you with this past week. You can find complete details at the MFT Blog along with information on how to win an MFT voucher to put toward your wishlist!

No offense, but I couldn't throw away an opportunity to take a punny turn on on the adorable new Cute Critters fox, he he.

I wanted foxy to  pop up and away from the Negative Dot Alpha letters, so I first die cut him from Primitive White card stock using the Cute Critters Die-namics and then stamped the coordinating Cute Critters fox in Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Then I added a bit of shadow here and there with a Copic marker (W1) and paper pieced the Tangy Orange areas. For a bit of added fun, I first stamped my Tangy Orange card stock with the new Fine Check Background stamp watermark ink.

Inside is a single acorn stamp in Tangy Orange ink, also from Cute Critters, leaving plenty of room for a handwritten note.

That wraps up my Release Countdown posts, which means we are only hours away from MFT's new release! I'll have more inspiration for you tonight during the New Product Launch, so stop back and see me. Thanks for your sweet comments this past week, I enjoy them - every one!

Release Countdown product links will be available at 10pm EST tonight!
