In.LOVE. Yes, I am! Poppies are sooooo, so pretty! And Lisa Johnson's new stamp set, Pretty Poppies, is soooo amazing. There is a coordinating Die-namics set that goes along with it. You'll want it, trust me! It's called  Poppies and Leaves

I used both of them together on this card.  I made a Clean and Simple card to really show case these flowers. I used some new ink, here too. There is a new green PREMIUM DYE INK joining the MFT line up. and I am soooooo excited (there aren't too many greens I don't like). It's Gum Drop Green!

I used it to stamp those pretty stems. 


I used some Wild Cherry Ink to stamp some pretty blooms. Guess what? MFT has added a Smooth White card stock to the boutique. It makes for perfect, smooth, complete SOLID image stamping a DREAM!!!

 I then used the new Poppies and Leaves Die-naimcs to cut out my blooms. I popped them up on the card front with a dimensional. A little bit of Rock Candy Distress glitter was added to the one flower center. 


There is this amazing text block included in this set. I loooove it, and had to add it to the bottom of my card. I didn't want it to overpower, so I stamped it in Antique Linen Distress ink before I embossed this panel.  The lovely sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice Ink and cut out with my favorite, Sentiment Strips! A pretty Dainty Lace Border cut from Sweet Tooth cs was added to the bottom. 

I have another Poppy sample for you today, too. I figured I might as well show you this one right away! Along with the new stamp set and Die-namics.....there are a few other cool things on this card that will be releasing. Are you ready??? I KNOW the DT is soooo excited to share this news with you. 
It's a brand new Die-namics series called Blueprints! You are going to fall in love......I HAVE for SURE!!! 
Introducing Blueprints – The Foundation for Your Creativity
Whether you have limited time, or simply need a creative jump start; Blueprints is your answer.  
A design plan and building blocks in one revolutionary product.  Follow the provided sketches, or mix and match the elements provided to become your own architect.  Leave the heavy lifting to us.


The coolest thing about this line of Die-namics, aside from it having all these bits and pieces to create amazing cards,  is that you'll be able to print off a PDF. file from the MFT Blog that will include 4 sketches that you can use with each Blueprint released. I just think the concept of it is genius!

I used one of the sketches here on this card. Once I had the stamps and my papers picked out this card came together in a snap!




You'll be seeing lots of cards this release from me and the rest of the DT members as we show you how beautifully these Die-namics work together. This one uses almost all of the dies included in the Blueprint 1 set. 

This time I used the new, beautiful Blue Raspberry Premium dye ink to stamp my poppy in.

 In the background you can see the text stamp again (this time in Kraft ink) and more of the poppies (stamped off with the Blue Raspberry ink). The stem was inked in Gum Drop Green. 


I used a bit more of the pretty Rock Candy Distress glitter to add some glam to this card. 

I love the double flag treatment on this sketch. I used the smallest one from the Blueprints 1 set to stamp my sentiment.  I tucked them behind the giant handmade die cut button and tied on my favorite Twine!



Head on over to Kim's Blog for all of today's teaser details and to see the full list of DT members with samples. 

Hold on.....it's going to be another fun-filled week with MFT!!



Here is my shopping list for all the MFT goodies you can find in the boutique NOW!
