My Favorite Things New Release

 Hello, Friends!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I am so excited to be teaming up with the design team members from My Favorite Things to show you some of the products from the new release. 

One of the products I especially love is the Watercolor Wash Stencil. I combined this stencil with the new Happy Birthday Die and the Frosted Cupcake Die to create today's card!

I began by cutting and scoring a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base from white cardstock. Then I used some low-tack tape and adhered the stencil on to the card base. 

I grabbed my Distress Oxide inks and went to work on creating the "watercolor wash" background by using an ink blening brush. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet.

After using the Happy Birthday Die, I used the coordinating stamp set to stamp the words on to the die. This technique is helpful to use when you want a clean look and don't want to mess with fussy die cuts!

I assmebled the cupcake die cut by using colored cardstocks from my scrap pile, and then I added some shading with coordinating copic markers.

I mounted the cupcake with foam tape and then adhered it down to the card base, and then glued my completed sentiment down to the cupcake and then added foam tape to the parts of the sentiment that were hanging down past the cupcake so that all the elements would have even dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to check out the rest of the products in this fabulous release!
