my favorite gamer: MFT January Release Countdown


Welcome to this month's Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! You will find complete details each day on the MFT Blog, including how you can win prizes and full reveals of featured products.

To say that I am pumped about the release products were are sharing today would be a huge understatement! There are two gamers in this house, ok, three. I love gaming too! My boys have me totally hooked! Its my competitive side and I love sitting along side them and "getting" what they are always talking about. Level Up and Die-namics Game Controller are stamps and dies that will never, ever leave my stash! I will be able to make a million different projects with these products!

First off, I adore Die-namics Game Controller! Its perfect! It is exactly like our XBox One controllers and the boys were impressed with the accuracy! The set comes with all the little details to create a large controller, like the one on this card, and a smaller controller.

Sometimes, creating those small details can be a huge pain. However, MFT Stamps has added some new products to their online store that will make your creating tons easier! These are tools that I use regularly and am thrilled that MFT is going to carry!

QuickStik Pickup Tool and Quickie Glue Pen. Say hello to these tools my dear readers, they will become your new best card-making friends!


Die cut all your fabulous little pieces. Then, using the Quickie Glue Pen, apply a small amount of adhesive where desired. In the photo above, I added quite a bit of glue, but I wanted you to see it in the photo. This pen of adhesive writes just like a ball point pen!

When you are ready to place your detailed die-cut element, pick it up with your QuickStick Pick Up Tool. When you remove the cap there is a sticky substance at the end. Touch the end to your cardstock, place, and lift. The tool picks up your element, but doesn't ruin it or add marks to it! And I love that I can place it exactly where I want, rather than guessing when I use a tweezers.

This card is for my hubby. A couple of years ago he convinced me to try to play one of his video games. I became hooked. And that wonderful man still lets me play with him and all his friends online. I mean, seriously, this guy plays SPLIT SCREEN just for me! That's some serious sacrifice from a gamer! :)

Both sentiments are from Level Up and made the perfect boy Valentine's Day card!

The new color, Green Room, is the perfect green for all things XBox! I used the Green Room ink to stamp the sentiments. The Green Room cardstock worked well for an accent color!


One more card. And I had to stop myself because I could have made them all day! (But Christmas needs to come down and be put away and we need groceries! :))

Simple and basic and perfect for any boy occasion! I stamped the sentiments from Level Up onto Sweet Tooth Cardstock. The panel was foam mounted to a Black Licorice card base that had stripes of Green Room cardstock adhered to it.

There you have it, three boy cards, perfect for the gamers in your life! As always, head to the 
MFT Blog for all the information you want and need about this release!

thanks for stopping by!
