MFT Teaser Day 5-{Cheerful}

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I've had a good one and have had a chance to do a little bit of all the things I, creating, soccer, and fresh air. I also get to show you another set of fun with the new My Favorite Things products that will be releasing this Tuesday. 
I just love the Doodle Garden line of stamps. This month's gal is called, Turtle Girl. I used some preppy colors to show her off. I stamped her onto x-press it card stock and then colored her with my copics. I cut her out and used some foam dots to pop her up onto the pretty pierced circle from Blueprints3 (gosh, I love this Die-namics set!!).

Here are the markers I used to color her up. 

 and  another look at the Turtle Girl. She's so sweet. 

I also cut three strips of the pierced border strip included in the Blueprints 3 Die-namics. I cut two in Gumdrop Green and one in Sour Apple. I then added a cool paper bow from the same Die-namics set. 

The sentiment was stamped with Razzle Berry ink.  I looks great stamped on the Pink Lemonade card stock. I added the finished card front onto a Banana Split cardstock mat and added the whole panel to a Sweet Tooth card base. Since I was using the Blueprints 3 Die-namics, I made the card a 5 inch square.  I added a few epoxy colored dots here and there to accent the card. 

I stamped the sweet Turtle Girl image one more time, on the inside in Black Licorice ink. She'll look great next to the little note I'll add when I find an appropriate time to send this card. :)

Today I also have a sweet little 3x3 note card trio with the beautiful new sentiment set, Cheerful Blessings by Lisa Johnson. I was over the moon excited about the adorable sentiments included in this set. I love the idea of tucking these notes into my kids lunches, or backpacks, and maybe even left on the desk for someone at the Catholic School I work at. 

They are sure to make anyone smile. 

I used the same colors on all three, just in different arrangements-Banana split, Gumdrop Green, and the new Steel Blue
First up is my favorite. The card bases for all three is the newest Mini Album Square Scallop STAX.  I then added bits and pieces from the Blueprints 3 Die-namics. 

I used the Square Stax 1 Die-namics to cut a layer of Smooth White cs for the top of my scallop card base.  I then used Berrylicious and Steel Blue to stamp an assortement of Peaceful Wildflowers.  I stamped the sentiment from Cheerful Blessings in Steel Blue ink

The next card I used the circle from Blueprints 3 to stamp the sentiment in Berrylicious ink. The layered flower is from the same Die-namics set. I wrapped this one up with some bakers twine. 

I used the circle element from Blueprints 3 again for my sentiment. I love the sweet little sun stamp included with the Cheerful Blessings set. I stamped it in Orange Fizz ink and added a sweet Gumdrop Green button. Berrylicious ink was used again with the sentiment. I really love this color of ink.
