Phew! What a sizzlin' hot, kick off to summer release by My Favorite Things! Thanks for hanging with us all week. But the fun is not over yet! We've got one more chance to temp and tease you with all the fabulousness that you can now Purchase, here in the BRAND SPANKIN' NEW section of the MFT Boutique.
Of course I couldn't resist adding a sweet little heart from the HOMESPUN BIRDHOUSE DIE-NAMICS. A fun button and some twine for added cuteness!
While I still had the new TRADITIONAL TAG STAX DIE-NAMICS out, I decided I needed to make a sweet tag with another CS about Art sentiment. I used the largest one and cut a tag from soft suede cardstock and then ran it through my Vagabond with an old cuttlebug embossing folder.
Some good advice this one is....Add a Splash of Color Every Day....I thought a custom VANITY LICENSE PLATE wih the word HAPPY would make a great accent for the tag. I added a rainbow of ink colors to the word Happy.
The floral square panels were cut from the new SQUARE STAX 1 & 2 DIE-NAMICS and then I stitched around the edges and distressed the edges with my finger nail. It was finished off with a bashful blue NOTCHED BORDER DIE-NAMICS
I cut a smaller tag from newsprint paper and took the time to mask my sentiment, so I could make it fit on the TRADITIONAL TAG STAX. A pretty wooden button and some brown hemp twine, tie it all together.
I had one more sentiment from the CLEARLY SENTIMENTAL ABOUT ART stamp set that I wanted to use.....always show your true colors. I picked more patterns from the same Summertime pack.
My mojo really starts flowing when I use similar papers and colors on different project. It's also a time saver, since I don't have to pick up between each project. PLUS you end up with a nice coordinated gift set if you choose to package it all together.
I made this card to show off the gorgeous new HIBISCUS DIE-NAMICS.
I used the largest DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS for my *frame*. I ran it through my Vagabond with a woodgrain impression plate. I love how it looks against the bright chevrons in the background.
I layered up the Hibiscus with two different flowers, placing a foam dot between the flowers. I cut extra of the leaves....LOVE those. The embossing detail on both the petals and the leaves are awesome! I finished off the flowers with tiny red rhinestones. The red grosgrain ribbon is wild cherry that MFT carries. Love it!
I knew the soft suede was going to be too dark to stamp my sentiment on, so I ran the DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX through, one more time with fossil cs and trimmed it to the size I wanted, adding some contrast to my frame. I made it pop even more by adding a PINKING EDGE DIE-NAMICS to the bottom of it.
After I finished the card, I decided to finish off the inside. I love how the sentiment from this month's TRIPLE SCOOP PROMOTION-COMPLIMENTARY GREETINGS helped make this card extra special. I felt like the two sentiments together, really make a statement.
I stamped the sentiment onto some gumdrop green cardstock, cut with a smaller DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS. I had the second half of the PINKING EDGE left over, so I added that on the inside, too.
Thanks so much for another GREAT week of teasers. I love the share what I create and having you all leave so much love and encouragement sure makes it all worth it. Thank-you!
