MFT VIP Collection - Pure Innocence In the Air

It's time for this month's VIP collection from My Favorite Things and it's another cute one with two Pure Innocence sets!!! Be sure to hop over to Kim's blog for a complete list of all the designers participating in this New Product Tour.

Here's what you'll get with the Pure Innocence In the Air VIP Collection for just $25.95:

  • Pure Innocence Jump for Joy stamp set
  • Pure Innocence Plane Amazing stamp set
  • In the Air Sentiments mini set (a VIP exclusive stamp set - will never again be offered for sale, a $9 value absolutely FREE)
  • Rolled Scallop Flower Die-namics die

The Pure Innocence In the Air VIP Collection is limited quantity product, so don't hesitate to place your order. This is your chance to purchase these brand new products two full weeks before they're released in the MFT Boutique.

I'll start with Pure Innocence Plane Amazing. A little pilot...just like me!!! Except I've never worn a jumpsuit, but it would be fun! Don't you just love the little wings on her suit?!?

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I added clear glaze pen to the lenses for a more realistic look. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite 6x6 pad.

The layout is Jen's December Sketch For You To Try and I used the airplane shape from the You Move Me die-namics to cut out the orange and green planes. I stamped the sentiment onto a white tab that I cut out using the ticket tab die-namic.

On the inside I used the new skyline border die-namics with another airplane and the flat bottom cloud die-namics. I stamped another sentiment from the set directly onto the skyline border.

Now it's time to skip along to Pure Innocence Jump for Joy. When I was little I used to skip up and down the street in front of our house, and played plenty of jump rope at school recess. This little sweetie just makes me smile!!!

You might notice that my image looks a little different than the image in the stamp set. Well that's because I inked the image but omitted the jump rope so I could add a honeydew twine rope down by her feet. Her legs are perfectly placed for the rope either going over her head (like the stamp) or going down under her feet (like I've done).

I paper pieced her dress with one of the patterns from one of the old My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary collections (which I still love!) and the rest is coloured with copics. I used the oval open scallop doily die-namic to cut out the pink layer.

The new rolled scallop flower die-namic was perfect for creating the three floral accents and I stamped the sentiment onto one of the new mini tabs foursome die-namics. Oh, and the crown border die-namics is tucked under there too.

On the inside I used one of the sentiments from the VIP exclusive In the Air Sentiments mini set stamped onto pink that I cut out with the sweet stack labels die-namics.

Here are the die-namics I used:

Happy hopping and shopping!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
