Color My World …. Let’s Hop & Shop!

MFT-Art-wm

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!

Tonight I am featuring two of the new stamp sets that are being released, these are Typewriter Alphabet and PI – You Color My World.

The Typewriter Alphabet stamp set comes with Upper Case, Lower Case , Numbers and a few other common things you might need like … nd, rd, th, and &. These come in two sizes, the size I used on my card above is the larger size and there is a smaller size if you need it. You also get some round circle (the typewriter keys) in both open & solid that you can use with the alphabets. I used the Open circle on my card today.

I have used two of the new MFT Die-namics on the front of my card. First up I used the High Tea Doily and this looks just like a real doily and I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!! You can cut your doilies out of any card or designer paper you wish. There is also a Pop-Out tool which helps to remove all those cut out bits from the doily after die cutting it.

The second die I used on the front was the new Fish Tail Banner Die …. another must have die. This is a 4 piece die set and has the two pieces for the banner as well as the circle pieces that can go on top of the banner, which I used to stamp the word “Art” onto.

I love this PI, the set comes with her without the beret, which is another stamp in the set that you can use if you wish, as well as the splatters which I stamped beside her paintbrush.

Because this set is all about color, I decided to use three different colors of twine on my card today, these are …. Caribbean Teal Twine; Lemondrop Yellow Twine and Mandarin Orange Twine.

Here is the inside of my card, I used two of the sentiment from the set and also added the PI girl again. I also used another of the new MFT Die-namics being released tonight which is the Die-namics Open Zig Zag Border.

Here are the die I used on my card today:
