MFT July Shop & Hop.....

Welcome back! What a fun release or what! The DT is here to show you another great round of fabulousness from this release.  You want to make sure you start at the beginnning of the hop at Kim's Blog, so you don't miss any of the inspiration! Plus, there is secret blog candy hidden along the hop...leave a comment at each DT member's blog so you have a chance to win.

Haven't shopped yet....check out the full Brand Spankin' New section for all the new release goodies!

Today I get to share a card I made with the Clearly Sentimental  set about The Journey! Great fonts, great quotes and great words of wisdom. Love having these CS sets in my stamping arsinal!

And this quote has always been one of my faves! I added a solid bracket edge to the text layer of paper (bo bunny papers, btw!) and used the text stamp from Own Your Story to add some dimension (I clear embossed it) to the yellow frame from You Move Me. I used sweet Tooth and bannana split cardstock and some brown collection ribbon.  It's all finished off with a white glittered Large Rose!  I love how it looks like sugar.



I also saved another card I made with the CS about Sympathy set. When making sympathy cards, I often will reach for a monochromatic color scheme.  Here I used the grapesicle cardstock to match the pretty hand dyed seam binding ribbon I was excited to use. I paired the sentiment with the beautiful tree from the Inspired by Summer set and added a few butterflies, just small ones from the Notched Tag die-namic set. You'll also find a little solid bracket border tucked under the polka dot dp and a fossil strip of the scallop ribbon die, under the ribbon. The sentiment is hard to read from the photo, but it's perfect...."for some moments in life there are no words".

This one is finshed on the inside, too, with a strip of the solid bracket, the file tab, and a larger butterfly from the Butterfly trio die-namic. Soft, subtle and sure to easy a weary heart.
Thanks for hanging with me all week. I'll have my WSC card up in a bit....but before that, finish this hop!

Eva is up next! I'll meet you there!
