MFT Hop and Shop!


This was yet another super fabulous release from MFT and now it's time for you to pick up everything on your wish list from the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique.

But before you go, the design team wants to leave you with just a little more inspiration and a recap of all the stamp sets and dies. You'll want to start at Kim's blog so you don't miss a thing. Oh, and in true MFT fashion, there's a prize hidden along the hop so be sure to leave comments as you hop along. Have fun!!

My card uses à la mode - Talk Nerdy To Me...love that big pencil!!! I pulled the colours from my My Mind's Eye Blink of an Eye paper pack and coloured the image with copic markers. I couldn't resist using some of the new die-namics, and the sentiment fit perfectly on the new Ticket Tab die-namic.

I wanted to show off the gorgeous Prima Donna Petals die-namics too, so I created a flower using patterned paper and corrugated paper. When I ran the corrugated paper through the die it kinda flattened the bumps so there isnt' as much texture as I'd like, but the good news is it cut through the cardboard with one quick pass!

On the inside I used the Woodgrain Fence die-namic on some Fossil cardstock and inked it with a little frayed burlap ink to bring out the wood grain texture, then I topped it with a heart I cut out using the Homespun Birdhouse die-namics.

Now you're off to see what gorgeous creation Melody has to share!

Here are the die-namics I used today:

Thanks for stopping by!
