MFT and Simple Stories - A Wonderful Collaboration! Day 4

It's day four, and we've got even more for you from the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team and Simple Stories! We're teaming up for a fantastic collaboration filled with summer fun and creativity.

Simple Stories recently released four fun new collections: Summer Vibes, So Fancy, So Rad, and Stars & Stripes, and both our team and theirs will be melding these collections with the fine products from My Favorite Things

Let's take a look at three cards created with Simple Stories and My Favorite Things!

Perk Up Your Day Card by Alice Wertz featuring the Laina Lamb Designs Perk Up stamp set and Coffee Cup Die-namics #mftstamps

Alice gathered several fun papers from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collections and pulled out her Perk Up stamp set and Coffee Cup Die-namics for this fun encouragement card. Add in a gift card for coffee, and what a treat this would be!

Dude Card by Jill Dewey Hawkins featuring the Laina Lamb Designs Lucky Star, Blueprints 25, and Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics #mftstamps

Jill found inspiration in the So Rad collection and paired it with the brand new Lucky Stars Die-namics. I love how she gathered strips of papers from the collection and then made them the center of the Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics.

You're a Star Card by Susan R. Opel featuring the Polks Dot Cover-Up, Laina Lamb Designs Count the Stars and Stars & Wishes, and Lisa Johnson Designs Scribbles Die-namics #mftstamps

That little lipstick die cut from the So Fancy collection caught my eye right away, so I wanted to make a card fit for a girly girl. I gathered several of the die cuts from the collection and made them shine atop the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics. The brand new stacking Count the Stars and Stars & Wishes Die-namics were perfect for a sentiment fabulous enough for this card.

A collaboration like this wouldn't be complete without a fun give-away, now would it?
