Let’s Go Fly A Kite!


Hi again,

I have another couple of MFTeasers to share with you all today. If you missed my previous post from today which was this month’s MFT sketch challenge scroll down after you have finished here to see yet another MFTeaser.

Today the MFT Stamps Design Team are featuring 3 more of the new stamps which will be released by MFT Stamps after the release party tonight, over on the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS. The sets featured today include “Well Read WTG”; “Flopsey Flies A Kite” and also “Clearly Sentimental About Books” which is the Triple Scoop set for September.

For my first card today I used Flopsey Flies A Kite, the kite is a separate stamp to Flopsey so you can use it in conjunction with Flopsey or on it’s on and visa versa. For the layout of my card I used a recent Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenge (MTSC87). I used the MFT Die-namics Grass Border Die to add  some grass to  the bottom of the circle.



For the inside of my card I added one of the sentiments included in the set and also stamped the kite in orange. I also added the new MFT Die-namics Star Border Die which are going to be released tonight to my panel at the bottom of the card.
