MFT VIP- Sweet Safari

So glad you are joining me for the My Favorite Things mid-month VIP New Product tour.  The VIP collection is  a LIMITED QUANTITY product that gives you the opportunity to purchase upcoming stamp sets and a new Die-namics die TWO WEEKS early.  

Here is this month's line up......

Pure Innocence Giraffe Girl stamp set
Pure Innocence Freckles stamp set
Sweet Safari Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Large Royal Rose Die-namics Die

I know you love these PI cuties.... I used both of these new girls on two different cards today. I also put the FREE MINI set-Sweet Sarari Sentiments to good use.  

I can't get over how cute this Freckles PI is....ACK!!! Those pigtails (I used to wear pigtails all the time when I was a little girl. Still do sometimes ;) ).  I knew these Simple Stories-FabUlous papers were a great fit with her. 

My layout is roughly based on last week's ribbon Carousel sketch. I added one of the amazing, new LARGE ROYAL ROSES as an embellie.  I cut it in burlap....swoon!
Look how wonderful those ROYAL LEAVES are with that flower....it's a match made in heaven!  I also really wanted to add a bow, so I tucked in a button tied up with some twine.  

The sentiment is from the FREE mini set.  Of course , that's why I also used buttons on my card.  I used the new PINKING EDGE DIE-NAMICS to add some interest and help draw your eye to the sentiment. 

How about a matching inside???  I tied in the PINKING EDGE again, and this time added another sentiment from the actual PI-FRECKLES SET.  This time I stamped it onto a FISHTAIL FLAG STAX DIE-NAMICS.  

This next PI, Giraffe Girl,  is JUST AS CUTE!!! Giraffes are one of my FAVE animals at the zoo (it's a tie with the Polar Bears!).  They are gorgeous and I could watch them for hours. I love their beautiful patterned fur and their long necks.  I decided on a skinnier card for this one, it's 3.75 inches wide. 

She is stamped on x-press blending cardstock and then colored with copics.  I decided to give her a pretty pieced hair flower from the Authentique-Blissful paper pack.  I am having fun with the browns and yellows with the touch of coral.  

I played up the coral color, by die cutting a FLOWER BORDER  Berry Sorbet cs.  I had some new yellow rhinestones that fit perfectly in each of the flower centers.   I used some brown Hemp Twine and softened the look of it with some coral organza ribbon- a touch of nature with a hint of pretty!

Here is the inside.  I used the same papers-more long skinny strips, another FLOWER BORDER, and a second sentiment (Both sentiments on this card come from the FREE MINI set included in this month's VIP COLLECTION).  It's all accented with some scattered rhinestones. 

That's it from me, tonight. Hope you are feeling WILD and go for this kit. You'll love it as much as I do!
