Great Oaks

It's finally time to head over to the MFT Boutique and fill your cart with all the fabulous new stamps and Die-namics dies. But before you do that (or come back after if you just can't wait to shop) the design team has a recap of all the new stamp sets.

Start at the MFT blog for a list of all participating designers, and be sure to leave some love as you hop around because there's blog candy hidden somewhere along the way.

I used Inspired By Trees for my card tonight. I just looooooove the big beautiful oak tree image, so I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa then cut it out with the gorgeous Designer Labels 1 STAX Die-namics. I coloured the leaves with copic markers then layered some fossil card stock under the image.

I used sno cone card stock to mimic the sky and the patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Breeze 6x6 pad. I cut out the hot fudge card stock strip with the new Squiggle Border Die-namics then added some brown brads above the image.


Here are the Die-namics I used:

Happy shopping!!

Thanks for stopping by!
