MFT New Product Tour - Meeting People Halfway

It's finally time...all the new MFT products are available in the Brand Spankin' New section.


If you're looking for a recap of all the fabulous stamps and Die-namics in this release, well you're in luck because that's exactly what the New Product Tour is all about. Be sure to start at the MFT Blog so you don't miss any of the fabulous eye candy. There's blog candy hidden on one of the designer's blogs so  leave some love as you hop around.
I used Inspired by Travel for my card tonight. The images in this set are gorgeous and the sentiments are so inspiring. I decided on the cruise ship and paired it with the Deconstructed Sketch, DS54.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it very simply with copic markers. I love that the shading is already incorporated into the stamped image. Then I cut out the image with my Circle 1 STAX  Die-namics and stitched it to a circle of Fossil card stock which I cut out with my Circle 2 STAX Die-namics. I chose patterned papers from the October Afternoon Boarding Pass paper pad, because it just doesn't get any better than maps for a travel themed card, and wrapped some Flax Twine around the map layer.

On the inside I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and used the Hexagons Die-namics to coordinate perfectly with one of the other patterns from the Boarding Pass collection.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Happy shopping!
