Friends Forever …. Let’s Hop & Shop!


It’s release day over on MFT Stamps, which means it is time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Blog Hop and Shop!".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

I am featuring the new Jolinne stamp set that is being released today:

Jolinne – Friends Forever


Let’s start with my card, doesn’t Jolinne look sweet with her cute little bear. I stamped Jolinne on white card and then paper pieced her dress. As you can see I also got out my sewing machine and sewed around the edge of the card and the image.

I have also used two of the new MFT Die-namics on this card these are:

  • Die-namics Bracket Edge Die
  • Die-namics Perfect Petal Trio

I loved how easy it was to layer the bracket edge die.



For the inside of my card I used one of the sentiments from the set and stamped part of Jolinne with her bear on the lower right hand side of my card. I also used the Die-namics Bracket Edge die on the left side of my card.


For the second part of this project I decided to create a post it note book. After the bear was colored I used a scrap of towelling and copic blender ink to create a fur texture look.


Here is the inside of my post it note book.

Well that is about it from me for today, now it is time to hop on over to the blog of the marvellously talented Michele Boyer and see what awesome creation she has to share with you today.
