Pure Innocence!


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 November.

Today the MFT Design team are featuring the “Pure Innocence” range, and this month there will be seven brand new Pure Innocence sets to be released … you are going to love them!!!!!! The PI’s to be released include: PI Chrysanthemum; PI Snowboard Boy; PI Ski Girl; PI Stocking Girl; PI Christmas Caroler; PI Holiday Hugs Snowman and PI Precious Little Lamb – Upon A Star.

First up I have my November Calendar … it is hard to believe I only have one more calendar page to make using the Pure Innocence Flowers of the Month sets. This months Flower of the Month set is PI Chrysanthemum, I paper pieced the girls dress using designer paper.

You can see that I have used a number of the new MFT Die-namics on my calendar page, these include:

  • Die-namics Oval Dainty Doily
  • Die-namics Vintage Cameo Frame
  • Die-namics Crown Border
  • Die-namics Loopy Bloom (cut in half to create a fringe flower)
  • Die-namics Leafy Flourish (this is a previously released die)

The flower is cut using My Favorite Felt - Strawberry Ice Cream.






Stamps:  PI – Chrysanthemum – MFT Stamps
Paper: White; Blue; Sweet Tooth DP – Bo Bunny
Die-namics: Oval Dainty Doily; Vintage Cameo Frame; Crown Border; Loopy Bloom; Leafy Flourish – MFT Stamps
Other: Black Ink; Oval Nestabilities; My Favorite Felt Strawberry Ice Cream; Foam Tape; Copics


For my second card I used the cute PI Precious Little Lamb – Upon A Star stamp set. Again I have paper pieced the little lambs shirt & scarf.

For this card I used the My Favorite Felt - Puff Cloud White to die cut the Die-namics Loopy Bloom die which I again cut in half to create a fringe flower. The strip underneath the lamb image uses the Die-namics Icicle Border die. And finally the Die-namics Leafy Flourish  die to embellish my flower.



Here is the inside of my card, I used one of the sentiments from the PI Precious Little Lamb – Upon A Star stamp set. I also used the Die-namics Icicles die.
