{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring My Favorite Things + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Kalyn and I are back with our video series, Two Many Cards. If you missed our other videos in this series, check out the original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 

Today, we're featuring the fabulous and fun Mod Birds stamp set and coordinating dies, as well as the Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp set, all by My Favorite Things! The Mod Birds stamp set is a two-step layering stamp set that is easy to use and so fun to create with. I love that the birds and flowers can be used individually or combined in so many different ways. Together with the Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp set, I'll never run out of ideas to make my friends laugh!

I love making multiple cards with the same colour schemes. These two cards are similar but also very different. The concept for the first one was a shaker, which turned into a faux shaker and then eventually just a fairly simple card with dimension.

I created a frame using the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 29 and the third largest Stitched Arch STAX die. I recut the Stitched Arch STAX from watercolour cardstock so I could sponge it with distress inks to match the stamped images. I splattered shimmer spritz on to the finished background.

I stamped a super fun sentiment from Sassy Pants Best Friends to complement the scene and added clear round drops in three sizes to complete the card.

For my second card, I once again sponged a background, this time using the Cloud Stencil. I covered the entire linen cardstock panel, which was die cut using the stitched scallop rectangle from Blueprints 27.

I used masking paper to protect the bottom and side edges before sponging the clouds. I used the same six distress ink colours as the first card. You can click on the photo below to see the crosshatch details from the linen cardstock coming through the clouds. It's really beautiful!

After stamping another hilarious sentiment from Sassy Pants Best Friends at the top of the panel, I assembled the card. I adhered all of the elements with glue dots, doubling up behind the birds for slightly more dimension. This card is busier but flatter than the first and therefore easy to mail.

We’re giving away one $25 gift certificate to the My Favorite Things shop. One lucky winner will be chosen randomly from my video or Kalyn’s video. You must be a subscriber to both our channels!
