MFTeaser - Tweet Birthday

Welcome back for day four of seven days of fabulous MFT previews, culminating with the release on Tuesday, September 6th at 10pm.

Today I'm sharing a card created with the fabulous Homespun Birdhouse stamp and die-namics set. Can I just say...LOVE it!!! I'm a sucker for all things "bird" and this set just makes me smile, plus it has a wide range of the most wonderful sentiments in a chunky font!!!

This card is also playing double duty as my sample for the Guest Designer contest, on now!! Are you playing along? Well you should be...you could win a pile of great MFT sets and stamp along with the design team for next month's release!!! The theme is rip and roll, so I've ripped and rolled a piece of Hot Fudge cardstock to create the branch, then I rolled down the top corner of the patterned paper, which is from the Blissful collection by Authentique.

The bird was cut using one of the Homespun Birdhouse dies and I stamped the nest with Memento Rich Cocoa onto Whip Cream then shaded it with two copics. I couldn't resist using the amazing Fence die-namic, both on the front of the card and again on the inside. Can you see the embossed wood grain on the fence? It cuts and embosses in one single pass! And I paired it with the fresh cut grass die-namic on the inside to show how the scale of each die works so well together.
