MFTeaser - All About YOU!

Welcome back for day two of seven fabulous day of MFT teasers!!!

Today I'm showcasing the adorable new Flopsey set, You Lift Me Up Flopsey.

I love love LOVE him holding the three balloons and I think you'll be surprised that the sentiments in this set don't just revolve around a birthday celebration. MFT is so smart!!!

I stamped Flopsey with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured him with copic markers, then I paper pieced the balloons with patterns from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 pad. I fussy cut around Flopsey so I could show more of the fabulous new Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics. I cut out two sizes then stitched them together for Flopsey's background.

I used the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics again for the strips across the top. I cut out a piece of yellow first and used the negative cut for the top border, then I cut out a blue patterned piece and placed it nice and cozy right next to the yellow strip. I added a few rhinestones for some bling.

Check out the gorgeous gingham flower I created using the Plentiful Petals Die-namics...LOVE!! I added a Sunflower button to the center to tie in the yellow. The card base layers are Fossil card stock and SU night of navy.

On the inside I stamped Flopsey again then pulled out my new Sentiment Strips Die-namics for the sentiment. You could use this card for just about anyone and any occasion, but I'm using mine as a birthday card. :-)
