MFT May Release Rewind {love struck}

Hello! So happy to see you here. The MFT  May release was last week, AND we are still having fun with all the new goodies. I hope your orders have arrived (or are on their way to you) and you have found some time to play, too.

I decided to pull out a few stamps and Die-namics that I didn't have a lot of time to use during Teaser Time.  I think Laina Lamb's new set, Right on Target, is just the coolest. I created two cards, a little on the Clean and Simple side, to show off the great sentiments. Of course a few Die-namics helped complete the look and feel I was going for. 

This first one was inspired by an ad I got in my email from Two Peas. The 3x4 Notepad Die-namics is a great focal point for any card. I cut one out with some Smooth White card stock and then used a heart from Rustic Heart Die-namics to create a cut-out element to show off the arrow.

 That was cut from Black Licorice cs and the new Feathers and Arrows Die-namics. I glued it across the heart cut out to keep the point and end lined up. I then snipped off the middle of the arrow.

Along the bottom of the note pad piece, I stamped some Darling Dots in Lemon Drop (stamped off once) and then wrapped around some Washi Tape for another graphic element. The sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice ink. I cut the stamp in between the words, so I could stack them on top of each other to fit this space. 

I mounted this on a Kraft mat and stitched around the edges. I used Banana Split card stock for my card base. 
For my next card, I cut another 3x4 Notepad from Kraft cardstock this time. I wanted a subtle background stamped on this piece.

 I reached for Mod Borders and used Berrylicious and Sour Apple ink to stamp the graphic and trendy arrow-like image across the note pad. 

I used Rectangle Stax 1 Die-namics to cut a place for my sentiment on Sno cone cs. 

 I stamped the sentiment in Steel Blue ink and then added the arrows from Right on Target in Berrylicious ink. 

I needed stars, of course, so I pulled out the original Stacking Stars  Die-namics, and the teeny star from Star Stax Die-namics to cut a cluster from Sour Apple and S
no Cone. I used a sketch from the Retro Sketch Blog for my layout and then tucked in a few gems.  

I mounted this all on a matt cut from Nightshift Blue, to mimic a stary night. I used Smooth White cs as my card base. 
I have one more card and this time I reached for the new Bingo stamp set. I love it, and am so excited to be able create my own custom bingo cards to use as accents or backgrounds, or whatever my heart desires. 

I used it as the focal point on this card and accented it with a combo of Die-namics to make a fun flower. The stem is from Mona's Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics and coordinating stamp set, Dandelion Wishes and the flower is from Blueprints 3. I used the two different sizes and layered them up. A pretty Steel Blue button.  Of course, a doubled up Hemp twine bow, dressed up the button.

I had used the Distress Backgrounds a ton during teasers, but i had yet to use the checkerboard pattern. So I stamped in in the background on this card, in Steel Blue ink. You NEED this color! I LOVE it. 

 I used the Steel Blue ink to stamp the Bingo card onto Kraft cs and then used the first released, Insert it-3x4 Insert, to cut out the Bingo card. I layered it up with an off-set Gumdrop Green 3x4 Notepad Die-namics

That's it for me today. I hope you have been inspired by my cards today. I just love this release and I hope you have, too.
