Hello everyone ! 
Mayra here from Mayras Designs 
with today's post . 
I LOVE, love, love the new release !! 

For my card today I used one of my all time 
FAVORITE sets Timber  . 
Yes, I know it is one of the newest sets ,lol ...
That is how much I adore the images ,
it gets the honor of being one of my top fave sets !! 


I am hooked on creating matching treat bags with the cards I create . 
The Treat Bag die set makes it so easy to customize 
and create any theme of bag you want to create ! 


I knew I had to use red and black for my 
little lumberjack ... I had to !! 
I used my go to combination for reds 
using Copic markers in R46,27,17,05 and a bit of R12 or R11 .




I hope you love this set I created to share with you !! 
Thank you so much for stopping by ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !

MFT Card Design Superstar 2017 Coloring Virtuoso

I am back with the second entry for the 
My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 
Contest . This card is for the Coloring Virtuoso Part <3. 

I really had to make up my mind on what I would be using 
to color the cute images from the  Space Explorer stamp set.
Yes... I did use this set for the Innovation Master category as well ,
I couldn't help myself these astronauts are super CUTE !! 
I was debating between  Copics and Zig Clean Color Brush 
Markers. I went with my Copics as they are the reason 
I enjoy coloring . 


I began by creating the galaxy background using 
various Distress Inks and Oxides . 


I then colored in my images and put my 
pop up card together . 

I hope you enjoy my entry for the Coloring Challenge . 


MFT Card Design Superstar Innovation Master Contest ......

Hello everyone !! 
I am so excited to be sharing these projects I created 
for the My Favorite Things Card Design Super Star Contest !!!! 
I am super happy to be participating , believe 
me the entries are absolutely AMAZING  !!! 

I started to think of ideas from the moment I saw 
MFT announce it . Nevermind, that here I am 
creating and editing my photos with a 45 minute time limit
to turn these in (insert shocked face here ,lol ) . 

I just added my photos with only a couple of minutes to spare !!
I knew I would be coming back to add all of the info on how I created these .
I am so happy I made it !!
Whew !!!

I began with an idea for an interactive card / book
the moment I came across the MFT Interactive Labels
stamp set .
I love all of the fun options this set has for creating
interactive cards .
I instantly thought of an Astronaut/Outer Space themed party
using the Space Explorer stamp set . 


From the idea for a interactive card/book ,
I thought of an outer space scene box card .


They are super cute and easy to create . 
You cut a strip of cardstock to 11 x 3.5 inches , 
The widest parts of the card are 3" wide and the smaller sides are a little under 2" . 
For the window opening you die cut using a square die about 2.5 x 2.5 " . 
The Die-namics Square Stax set 2 has lots of different sizes . 


For the moon shape I used the circle from the 




I am so sorry , I have not told you where the inspiration for the colors came from !!!
I was at Target (LOVE the dollar spot ) .
When I saw these glass drink bottles
with the different colored lids ,
I instantly knew I would be using them with the
super cute astronauts .


I have three boys , so as you can imagine 
planning birthday parties is always fun . 
My older boys are more into going places to celebrate their 
birthdays , but my five year old ...... 
As you can see I LOVE creating themed parties . 


For the treat sacs I used the 
MFT Die-namics Stax Stitched Rectangle Dies . 
I just die cut them to the size I was going for . 
For the scalloped trim I used the Stitched Scalloped Edged Frames. 



This card is what I had envisioned after lots of 
prayer . I sometimes have so many ideas but end 
up with a crafty mental block . 
This was not the time to have my crafty mojo pull a disappearing act !! 
I prayed and prayed and I can tell you with all honesty 
that these all came together TODAY !!! 
Yes .... Talk about last minute !! 


I can't begin to tell you how grateful I was as I finished each section <3 . 



Lots of MFT goodies were used to create the interactive 
areas of this card . 







I truly hope you enjoy the card and set I created to share with you today <3 .
I thank you so much for taking the time to stop by !
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !
