Howdy, folks! Welcome to the MFT VIP release of the Country Charm collection.  We've got a fun blog hop for you showing off two of the latest Pure Innocence buckaroos as well as a few of the the new Die-namics! Hurry, though....this month's collection is going to sell FAST....they always do!  It is a LIMITED QUANTITY product that gives you the opportunity to purchase upcoming stamp sets and a new Die-namics die TWO WEEKS early.

Today I'm sharing a little bit of everything. I used each of the new stamp sets, all of the new Die-namics AND the FREE mini set. Hold on to your hats and let's jump right in.

This card turned out WAY CUTER than I ever imagined.  It all started with some older Oct. Afternoon dp, Farm Fresh and the teeny tiny bit of the red gingham pattern I had left (seriously, I only had enough to stamp her vest and the scarf on the cowboy below).  

She's stamped and colored up on x-press  blending cs and then I cut her out. I wanted to show off the fun COUNTRY CHARMS DIE-NAMICS and had fun adding them as embellies to this card.  I thought the WOODGRAIN FENCE DIE-NAMICS was a perfect fit to this country feeling card.  I saw some of that thick twine and right away was inspired to have it hanging from the fence post. Love when I re-discover something from my stash!

The upper corner of this card was missing something, so the GORGEOUS new ROYAL ROSE DIE-NAMICS and that sweet horseshoe charm (spritz with some Mr. Huey Shine to make it a bit mettalic) became the finishing touches. I cut the ROYAL ROSE DIE-NAMICS from some red and white designer paper from the Farmhouse line by Oct. Afternoon.

OMG! this rose is soooo pretty! Check it out. Yes, you need it! It's the latest and greatest in the rolled flower line by MFT.

I also did up a matching cowboy, but changed up the card design. I used lots of the same products which helped this card (and the tag) come together quicker.  I used Jen's Deconstructing sketch for this card. I stamped the sentiment onto one of the SAY WHAT DIE-NAMICS. 

 A cluster of the COUNTRY CHARMS DIE-NAMICS was a fun way to jazz up this country boy. I used some antique brads and MFT Twine (did you see the new colors??? mine are on their way!) 
 Before I send you on your way, I've got one more diddy with product from this month's VIP Collection.  I've been doing up a duo of cards and a coordinating tag for the past few months, and I decided to continue with this again this month.  This tag uses the TAG YOU'RE IT DIE-NAMICS.  There are some cute western images included in the Cowboy stamp set and I thought they'd make a cute background. 
Does the tag look a little different? I made it a little longer using my Banner Extension trick (see the tutorial link in my sidebar), then rounded the corner to finish it off. 
This sentiment comes from the FREE MINI set included in this set.  I just adore those mini sets. It's great to have so many options when it comes to coordinating sentiments! AND it's FREE! You can't beat that. 
I added another REGAL ROSE (adhered it into an antique bottle cap), more COUNTRY CHARMS, and a strip of the POSTAGE BORDER DIE-NAMICS

Have a great night and Happy shopping! Now off you go........
