MFT New Product Tour - Surprise!

It's finally release time! Hooray!!! All the new products are available in the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique.

The design team has a little more inspiration for you with a recap of all the new stamp sets so head over to the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers. Also, there's blog candy (a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique) hidden on one designer's blog so don't forget to comment as you hop around.


I used the new à la modes Big Birthday Wishes for my card. She's just so fabulous and she looks so happy!

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced her top and the balloons with patterns from the Authentique Lively collection.

The layout is a loose interpretation of the September Sketch For You To Try. I used the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics for the lower rectangle element and I just trimmed the end to the length I wanted. I used the Say What? Die-namics to cut out the Cotton Candy talk bubble and stamped two of the sentiments from the set. For the vertical element I used the Harlequin Die-namics to cut out patterned paper and Hot Fudge card stock, then I offset them in a pseudo argyle pattern.

I created the Bubble Gum felt flower by combining a couple of layers from the Flower Medley Die-namics and topping it with a Sweet Tooth button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I added another sentiment from à la modes Big Birthday Wishes and echoed the harlequin from the front of the card.

Now it's time to head off and fill your cart!

Here are the Die-namics I used:
