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 6th December.

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 Holly; PI Good Fortune; PI Ice Princess; PI Heart Warmer; PI Cause For Celebration; PI Frosty & Fabulous and PI Precious Little Lamb – Baby Lamb in Manager.

For my first card I used the PI Cause for Celebration stamp set, which I stamped onto the new MFT Die-namics Oval Open Scallop Doily die. For the sentiment I used the new MFT Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome. I actually die cut two of the same mini tabs and stamped the sentiment on each piece and attached to the top portion of my card. I added the caribbean teal twine to hid the join.  I also used the MFT Die-namics crown border die.





Here is the inside of my card, this card is another Waving Pop Up card. This time round I just added the numbers 2 0 1 2 to acetate and attached it to the centre of my card. The numbers were cut using MFT Stamps By The Numbers die.



Here is another view of the inside of my card. In this photo you can see the thin acetate strips that attach the numbers to my card.


And one more photo, this time so you can see the sentiment better. As you can see when I fold the card inside out to show you the sentiment the letters are flying in the air.

Die-namics: Oval Open Scallop Doily; Mini Tabs Foursome; By The Numbers; Crown Border – MFT Stamps

For my second card today I used the PI Frosty & Fabulous stamp set … isn’t it a cutie. I covered the snowman with glitter and paper pieced the hat and scarf.

I used the MFT Die-namics Let it Snowflake die and also the MFT Die-namics Icicles Border die to decorate my card.




Here is the inside of my card. I stamped part of the snowman again on  my card and added a sentiment.

You go, girl!!!!!! Two incredible cards!!! :) Your paper piecing and coloring is perfection and how clever is that waving pop up card!!!!!! Your glittery, paper pieced snow man paired with those bi-colored snowflakes and icicle borders doesn't get any better than that! ;)
