MFTeaser - Dream and Chill Out

Welcome to day one of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!!

I have lots to share in today's post so let's get to it. First up is this pretty card which I created with the new My Favorite Sentiments set.

I used fun new papers from the Echo Park Hello Summer 6x6 paper pad, paired with Pink Lemonade, Sour Apple, Razzleberry, yellow and white card stocks. For the main panel I inked the sentiment with Memento Rose Bud and Memento Bamboo Leaves, then used a black SU marker to ink the middle line. I love the shape of the new Designer Labels 3 STAX Die-namics and the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock is perfect under the main panel.

Look at this gorgeous new flower which I created thanks to the new Plentiful Petals Die-namics...swoon! I cut the smallest size from Razzleberry card stock and Bubblegum felt then topped it with a fun Pretty Girl Cozy Brad from Buttons Galore & More. A green Fancy Flourish is tucked under the flower. The card layout is sketch #53 from the Cardabilities blog.

MFT has a great offer for you regarding the amazing My Favorite Sentiments set. Check out the details...
MFT is so excited to celebrate our 6th birthday this month! It's been our pleasure serving you and we look forward to many more years to come. In honour of the celebration, we have a special offer for you. From July 3rd through July 31st we're offering the My Favorite Sentiments stamp set at the bargain price of just $6 (retail value of $17.95). The stamp set is a graphic collection of sentiments inspired by you, our valued MFT fans. *one set per customer, while supplies last, no rain checks

Happy 6th birthday MFT!!!

Here's the entire set. I just looooove how graphic the sentiments are!!!

Next up is the new Who's That Girl? Straight from the Carton. Don't know about you, but I love ice cream so I can totally relate to her. And I love sitting that way in a big comfy chair too!

I used the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics to cut out the Pink Lemonade strip and added some Hot Fudge grosgrain ribbon. The new Sentiment Strips Die-namics (it's a set of four different shapes) was perfect for cutting out the strip for "Chill Out" then I cut off one end and stitched it in place to the Orange Fizz layer.

I did lots and lots and lots of layers of paper piecing on this image. I really should have taken pictures of my layers before I glued it all together, but I didn't, so I'll tuck that idea away for another time. All the papers are from the Echo Park Hello Summer paper pad again. The layout is Freshly Made Sketch #19.

On the inside I used the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics again and stamped another sentiment from Who's That Girl? Straight from the Carton.
