Circus Spectacular!


I am SO excited that it's time to start My Favorite Thing teasers - today marks the release of the first Lisa Johnson Designs stamp set and Die-namics!

I have used the amazing Circus Spectacular stamps and Die-namics, along with the co-ordinating Ticket Strip Die-namics to create this card.


I went for a clustered focal point on this card. I sponged and spritzed some of the layers for a slightly vintage look. Aren't those ticket images GORGEOUS?! So detailed!


I kept the inside of my card pretty simple because the front is so layered. Scallops just scream circus to me, so I had to work some in!

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 7 from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can WIN PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on August 7 at 10 PM EST.  You'll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
