MFTeaser–Pure Innocence!

MFT PI Home wm

Hi everyone,

I have another couple of MFTeasers to share with you all today in readiness of the MFT Stamps new release, this coming Tuesday 1st May.

Today the MFT Design team are featuring the “Pure Innocence” range, and this month there will be six brand new Pure Innocence sets to be released … you are going to love them!!!!!! The PI’s to be released include: PI Baseball Boy; PI Goldfish Girl; PI Home Sweet Home; PI Giraffe Girl; Freckles and PI All Occasion Sentiments.

For my first card today I used the MFT Stamps PI Home Sweet Home stamp set. As you can see I created a house shaped card, I paper pieced the girls outfit. I used the Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass for the bottom of the card. I also used the new Die-namics Squiggle Border along the edge of my roof.

For my second card I used the Pure Innocence Freckles stamp set, what a cutie!!!! After stamping it onto my white card I cut it out using MFT Die-namics Oval STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Oval STAX Set 2. I have also used the Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX for the panel on the left side of the girl. On the bottom corner of my card I added a photo corner from the Die-namics Photo Corners set. And finally I added the sentiment using the Die-namics Chat Bubbles set, I shorted the chat bubble by putting it back into the die at a different place after I cut it the first time.

I finished the front of the card off by adding some Grosgrain Ribbon Sno Cone to tie a bow.

The Best Things In Life!

MFT VerticalGreetingsTwo wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 4 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 1st May.

Today the Design Team are featuring the Girly Graphic Tee Die-namics and Stamp set and Vertical Greetings II Die-namics and Stamp set.

For my card today I used the new Vertical Greetings II Die-namics and Stamp set. I love the sentiments in this new stamp set and of course the new Die-namics die too. I can never have too many different die-namics to select from when creating cards.

I have stamped the sentiment towards the top of the die-namics die and added a strip down the bottom of the die-namics layer using designer paper. I then tied Denim Twine and Lemondrop Yellow Twine around the bottom of the die. I have also decorated the front of my card using the new Die-namics Squiggle Border; Die-namics Large Royal Rose and the Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish.
