Like always, we are kicking off this week with our beloved Who's That Girl.  This month the WTG set is called-Straight from the Carton.  Yes, we have a WTG eating ice cream, but this is an updated set and a completely different look and feel. I really love it and went to town with my paper piecing. I started from the back and built my scene up towards the front.  I love how it turned out. 

Here's another look at the piecing. I really love how her legs just dangle over the edge. I left them unglued, so it gave a more realistic look. 

 Isn't that sentiment the best?? You know you've all had days like that!

 I used two new Die-namics on this card. The super cool ROUNDED BANNER and the new JUMBO SQUIGGLE BORDER.  


I also used them on the inside of my card. I love carrying over the same elements to the inside. I used a second sentiment from the same set.  I totally agree with this statement! Ice Cream is MY weakness....love it, just about any flavor.  :)


You can get a better idea of what the ROUNDED BANNER STAX is supposed to look like. 








We also have a very special stamp set called My Favorite Sentiments. Not only is this an amazing stamp set.....

BUT you can get is at a fabulous price.Here's the dealio:



MFT is so excited to celebrate our 6th birthday this month! It has been our pleasure serving you and look forward to many more years to come.  In honor of the celebration, we have a special offer for you.  From July 3 through July 31, we are offering the My Favorite Sentiments stamp set at the bargain price of just $6 ($17.95 retail value).  The stamp set is a graphic collection of sentiments inspired by you, our valued MFT fans.  
*one set per customer, while supplies last, no rain checks

I made this cute card with one of my favorite sentiments from the set.  It reminds me of the catchy little Sponge Bob episode.  Do you know it? I won't sing it, you'll hate me all day....it's one of those songs that sticks in your head. lol!

I cut the awesome new DESIGNER LABLE 3 STAX DIE-NAMICS  from some burlap. I wanted some fun texture on this card. It was the perfect place to nestle this giant, gorgeous flower- PLENTIFUL PETALS. It's awesome. 

I used the two largest flowers, cut one from Sno Cone cardstock and the other from Puff White felt.  There is one more smaller flower and three different sized centers. It's way cute!

 I finished it off with a button (from Buttons Galore & More) and some burlap twine (Ribbon Carousal). 

I also added a sweet Little Open Scalloped Strip cut from the same, Simple Stories papers. A bit of Mandarin Orange Twine from the MFT Boutique pulls this all together.

Here is a close look at the new Die-namics that will be releasing this month. Love them...always do! Seriously you can't go wrong with ANY of the Die-namics. Swoon!!!

Lisa, your cards are gorgeous! I love the sentiment you chose for the WTG card, and I am in love with the new sentiment set -- I love how you used the die namic on the burlap with the flower and polka dotted paper! What gorgeous combos - oh and the gingham button -- that's the sort of thing I'd never think of so thanks for sharing your ideas!
