Ellen Hutson & MFT - Good Friends

Hi Folks! I am so happy to help show off the adorable new United We Flourish Good Friends Stamp and Die set created in collaboration with My Favorite Things and Ellen Hutson! Can't decide between your cat-loving friends and your dog-loving friends? No need to ... this set has both!

In fact, they are so cute that I wanted to use all of them on one card. So here they all are in a cat & dog patterned paper. They are colored with Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils in a super-basic way, so you know the cuteness is from the actual stamp and not from some fabulous coloring : ) The sentiment is one of several themed sentiments included with the set.
I was excited to see that this new set matches perfectly with an existing MFT set called You Make My Tail Wag. I used the dog house from that set here, but that set has several other dogs that are the same scale as these dogs so you can really create your own little army of pets.
There are also coordinating dies that go with the Good Friends images. I die cut the watercolored cat and dog and arranged them on the dog house. The bone on the doghouse is a perfect place to add another sentiment so I lettered some x's and o's there.

He's so cute peeking out of his house!

Finally, we have a crew of stripey dogs! I thought these guys needed a sassy sentiment to go along with their sassy stripes, so I had them carry the TREAT YO SELF sentiment from Totally Awesome.
This would be an easy card to mass produce, as once it's stamped all you need to do is loosely swipe a few lines across the dogs' bodies with some Copics and you're done. I overlapped the lines slightly to get an additional stripe of color.

Sure hope you enjoyed this new set; I know I had a blast playing around with it! And remember, this set is part of the United We Flourish program, so it will only be available for a limited time.

Thanks for stopping by,
