MFT Teaser Time Day5 {let's meet some new friends}

I think the whole team has been dying for this day to arrive! If you've been to the MFT blog already or hopped around to some of the other DT blogs, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. MFT has a new illustrator, which means a new stamp line.  Please meet the Doodle Garden! This month's stamp sets are called: Far Out; Sweet Friend; I'm Raptor Round Your Finger!!




First up is this sweet boy (you know I'm partial to anything BOY!).  The set is called I'M RAPTOR ROUND YOUR FINGER. Cute, huh?  I had a blast coloring him with my copics (stamped on x-press blending cs) to coordinate with some new papers I just cracked open. They are by Studio Calico and the 6x6 pack is called Darling Dear. 



I made my card large, 5x5 square. I cut out and mounted this sweet little raptor boy onto a double layer of HEART STAX DIE-NAMICS.  The sentiment was stamped on a little tab piece from the ACCENT IT-LABELS AND TABS DIE-NAMICS.  I added a few MFT buttons in Sour Apple and Nightshift blue, to coordinate with the MFT cardstocks I used, Jellybean Green and Nightshift blue.  I also tucked in a few strips of the PINKING EDGE BORDER DIE-NAMICS in the background, see it?? I love adding that little detail to boy cards. It's my boy, scallop. ;)



Here are the Copics I used on my Raptor Boy. 



Here is the inside of my card. I used a few of the same patterns of paper and stamped the image again in Jellybean green Premium Dye ink and then added a strip of the open hearts from LAYERED HEART BORDER DIE-NAMICS.  

I also have one of the sweet girls, SWEET FRIEND, to share today. I just love her, too! Actually, I love all three new sets. The art work is just fantastic, AND they are so fun to color, too. 



 If you have noticed, all week long my Layered Heart Border strips are not the full 6 inches long. I have been shortening them up a bit to fit my card fronts. I didn't want to cut any of my hearts in half so I used the following trick to shorten the hearts. 

1. Cut out a full strip of the hearts. (here I am just using the open hearts border. Remember you get two dies with this Die-namics set). 


 2. Next slide your cut hearts  down as far as you need them to go. I only wanted to cut off one of my hearts, so I slid it down one and lined up the rest of the hearts back into the die. 

 3. Then run it through your die cut machine. I'm using the cool new Genius Magnetic plate to hold my die in place.
4. Here is the final cut piece and the left over piece. It a quick trick to shorten any die. 


 I am using this week's Deconstructing Sketch.  In place of those circles on the sketch, I decided to cut a few of the smallest hearts from the new HEART STAX DIE-NAMICS and then topped them with a few Blue Raspberry Button.

 It's great when there are a bunch of different shades of color through out a piece of designer paper. You can add in similar shades of embellishments and still have it all coordinate. I used Spearmint card stock to mat my large square panel. 

Here is a closer look at my Sweet Friend, all colored up. I used one of my favorite tricks with the sentiment....I gave it a little curve to fit the Oval Stax Die-namics I cut her out with.




 I stamped the sentiment in the new MFT KRAFT INK. 

And here are the copics I used on her. It helps to keep my camera right next to me as I'm coloring. When I am all done, I have been snapping shots of my markers before I put them away. I hope you find it helpful.
