MFTeasers … Pure Innocence

MFT-PI-April-wm

Hi everyone,

I have another MFTeaser’s to share with you all today in readiness of the MFT Stamps new release, this coming Tuesday 5th April.

Today the MFT Design team are featuring the “Pure Innocence” range, and this month there will be five brand new Pure Innocence sets to be released … you are going to love them!!!!!! The PI’s to be released include: PI Graduation Girl; PI Graduation Boy; PI Crazy For Daisies; PI I Get A Kick Out Of You and PI You Color My World.

For my first project today I used the PI Crazy For Daisies set to create my April page to my calendar I have been making each month this year using the PI’s that contain the flower of the month … Daisies being the flower for April. I paper pieced the little girls dress using brown polka dot designer paper.

I decorate my calendar using two MFT Die-namics. Down the bottom I used the new Die-namics Fish Tail Banner Die to stamp on my month and the flower of the month… Daisy. The flowers at the top were created using the Die-namics Upsy Daisy Flower Builder Die.

My next card uses PI Graduation Boy, isn’t he a cutie!!!! I guess it won’t be long before it is time to think of Graduations up in the USA and other parts of the Northern Hemisphere.

The scallop border at the bottom of my card was created using one of the new to be released dies …. this is the MFT Die-namics Simply Scallops Medium Die. I also added some Caribbean Twine around the bottom of my card.

For the inside of my card I used the MFT Die-namics Simply Scallops Medium Die along the bottom edge of my card. The banner at the top was created using the new Die-namics Fishtail Banner Die. The letters on the banner were created using the new Typewriter Alphabet which is also being released on Tuesday. The sentiment at the bottom of the card is one included in the PI Graduation Boy Stamp set.
