We have two fantastic sets debuting today....something familiar and something Brand NEW!!! It's WTG day and our newest addition to the MFT Family of stamps and Die-namics, Lisa Johnson's new set.
Since I am in love with the card I made....it's the GREAT stamps and amazing matching Die-namcis I tell you!!! I am going to start with this one.
I made a sweet, gender neutral birthday card. I am a lover of giraffes. They are my favorite zoo animal (Polar Bears are a close second). These images stamp so nicely (I used Graphite Black Brilliance Ink). I love how there is a nice edge left after you stamp onto the die cut piece. They really are easy to line up.
I layered up a few circles (CIRCLE STAX 1 & 2) and then added them to the AWARD SEAL DIE-NAMICS. A STAR STAX, an MFT button, and some twine (all can be found in the MFT Boutique...add some to your order on release night! You won't be sorry!).
I used the new TICKET STRIP DIE-NAMICS, to accent the side of my card. It is designed to allow you to cut a continuous strip of tickets (one of the ends is an open). I decorated the strip with the awesome images included in the stamp set.
You also can see the itty bitty tickets I created. I used the the MINI TICKET STRIP and a few more images from the stamp set. Take another look at this set!
It is CHUCK full of fabulous bits and pieces to make so many cute things. The teeny stars and argyle stamps...yep, all part of this stamp set!
I stamped her on x-press blending cs, and then pieced her up with some papers from the Lily Bee paper pack. I added shading to her suit with some copics.
The sentiment fit perfectly on my FAVE FILE TAB DIE-NAMICS. I added some black zig zag stitching to help it really stand out. The card stock is Blue Raspberry-yum!
Here is a closer look at the newest flower Die-namics-LAYERED ROSES. I only used some of the smaller flowers and added some foam dots between the layers and I created a pretty embellie. The button is again, one of MFT new Buttons! Behind that is a strip of the new DOUBLE DOT BORDER.
Also, because I don't want you to miss it....check out the bottom of my WTG panel...I added a cool wave, that was easy to do thanks to the new WAVY EDGE DIE-NAMICS.
I used more of the similar papers and the pretty DOUBLE DOT BORDER, along with another image of WTG to pretty up the inside of my card. It always gives an added surprise to the person receiving the card.
