MFTeaser - Fred Bear and the Megaphone and Inspired By Autumn

Welcome to day two of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers. Today the design team is sharing samples created with Inspired by Autumn and Fred Bear and the Megaphone.

I happen to have a sample with each set, so let's get started.

Our beloved bear is back and he's cuter than ever holding a megaphone. This is a fun little set with the perfect mix of sentiments that you'll use over and over. I used SSSC132 for the layout.

Fred is coloured with copics and the megaphone is partly paper pieced. The patterned papers on both my projects are from the Lost & Found Breeze collection by My Mind's Eye. I added some grass for him to stand in with my fresh cut grass die-namic and used the new tag from the Bon Appetit die-namics for the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped Fred again with Memento Rich Cocoa then used the new Oval Tab die-namic for the sentiment.

Next up is Inspired by Autumn.

I cut out the new Oval Decorative Doily die-namic then stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with copics. To jazz up the front a little more I used the bird from the new Contempo Cage die-namics and I sat him on a 'branch' cut out using the new Vintage Flourish die-namic.

On the inside I stamped the leaves with Memento Potter's Clay then added the sentiment in black. The new Postage Border die-namic came in handy for adding edge detail to the patterned strip.

First off - how cute is Fred and I LOL'd at the "Is this thing on?" sentiment! I really like the two layers of grass too. Those leaves on your 2nd card look like they're cut from a magazine! Awesome job my friend!
