Create8 | February cards Part 1

Today I am sharing 4 cards that I made using products from the latest release by My Favorite Things. They are all really adorable in happy colors and they are easy to recreate! I also have a GIVEAWAY for you!

card 1

My first card if a lovely card for a shower party! And you can customize it as much as you like by adding more little swans if the mother is expecting twins, triplets etc! I used the Splendid Swans set ( MFT | SSS ) and colored everything with my alcohol markers. For the glitter effect on the lake I used the Paradise Blue sparkle dust.

card 2

Birthday cards are the ones I use the most. And having small kids I am always in need of cute stamps as they hand them out to their classmates. So here is a really cute card with a flying cow from the Party Animals set( MFT | SSS ). I used my Nuvo Aqua Flow pens to color the images on watercolor paper.

card 3

Is this card adorable or what?! Those chicks are so much fun! They are from the BB Birthday Chicks ( MFT | SSS ) stamp set. This is another watercolored card with a little bit of distress oxide inking. The frame is the Die-namics Collage Cover-Up ( MFT | SSS )

card 4

And I just had to make a card with this cute cat. The perfect card for all your cat owner friends combining stamps from the Furever Friends ( MFT | SSS ) and dies from the Die-namics Paw Prints ( MFT | SSS ) and Die-namics Pet Perches( MFT | SSS ). In this card I also added some shine using the Nuvo Rose Quartz sparkle dust.

    My favourite card is the elegant card for weddings or anniversaries. I also liked the swans, although, as a;ways, you make it difficult to choose an absolute favourite from the release because your cards are always an inspiration and look amazing. Thank you.

    Although al the cards are great, one of them is standing out for me and that is card 3.
    The way you used the Collage Cover-Up Die is awesome, to put the little squares bag with a little bit of colour made a gorgeous background. And then the litlle Chicks on top makes the card so stunning. Thanks for all the beautiful examples.

    I just love and appreciate your doing these Create 8 videos Vicky. Sometimes, I’m not always completely sold on a set, and then I’m watch what you’ve created and YEP, I decide I need the set. You’re very creative without doing such complicated designs.
