I Love Us!


Happy New Year everyone,

It’s day 2 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 4th January … and that isn’t a misprint, the MFT release party will now be held on Tuesday nights.

Today the Design Team are featuring two of the new stamp sets that will be released, these include: “Flapper Doodles – I Love Us” and Clearly Sentiment About Love” which was last months triple scoop set..

For my card today I used the new Flapper Doodles set … isn’t it a cutie! I have used two MFT Die-namics on the front of my card, the new Dainty Lace Border Die and the Stacking Hearts Die. I paper pieced the girls dress and also the man’s suit using the designer paper I used for the background of my card.

Of course being Saturday it is time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new year and a new month we have a new hostess which is Maria Bell. Maria has challenged us to “Celebrate Anything” …. the New Year, Birthday, A Friend etc. As you can tell by my card I am celebrating Love!


Here is the inside of my card. The sentiment is from the Flapper Doodles – I Love Us stamp set. I also used two die-namics dies here … the Stacking Hearts Dies again and the Framed Greetings Die which I have cut in half lengthwise and attached to the top left hand side of my card with my sentiment.


Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
