With all the formalities out of the way....let me show off my card.  I think it's my FAVE from this release.  Wanna know what inspired this card and my die-namics of choice?  Would you believe me if I told you the chains from the stamp set??? Well, it's true. Inspiration comes from all places.
After I decided on my papers...I'm in love, BTW....Studio Calico, Memoir, I went straight to the oval chain die and dainty dots die.  They added just a little something behind my bird cage.
Speaking of that bird cage...it's pretty fabulous and I've already got some other ideas brewing in my head on what to use it with.  It's called Contemp Cage, don't miss it on your shopping list tonight.  I cut out the birdcage and carefully added some thin, strips of Jody Boosters to some of the thicker parts of the die. Before I attached it, I stamped the chain and bird swing images.  The bird was cut from the die-namic included in the set. After I had that all done, I attached the popped up bird cage.
I added my sentiment to, yep, you guessed it....the oval tab.  Again, I curved my sentiment to follow the curve of the die....sooo easy to do with clear stamps. The edges were distressed and a few vintage brads help set it off.

See you back here tonight for our new Product Tour with the MFT DT.  It's another great way to see all the new products in action. 
Head back to Kim's blog for more Pep-Rally creations!

  9. Oh Lisa, it is wonderful! I LOVE that bird cage die and the fact that you can stamp images to go "inside"- how innovative and cute! Love that you added the die cuts behind your main image and you curved your sentiment too. Too cute!
