MFT New Product Tour - Keep Warm, We Click

It's finally time to shop for all the new products in the MFT boutique! You'll find the new stuff in the Brand Spankin' New section.

If you're looking for a little more inspiration though, the design team has a recap of all the new stamp sets. Head over to the MFT blog for a list of participating designers. And don't forget to comment as you hop from blog to blog, because there's a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique up for grabs for one lucky person.


I used the sweet new Pure Innocence Warm Wishes set to create a fun winter card. I started with a base of Whip Cream cardstock then added a layer of Jellybean Green and more Whip Cream, which I embossed with my SU snowburst embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection. I used the Open Hexagon Borders Die-namics to cut out Jellybean Green and Kraft card stocks then paired them to create the horizontal element.

For the image panel I used the Snowflake Doily Die-namics to cut out some Blu Raspberry card stock then the Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft circle. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. I used the Say What? Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream talk bubble then stamped one of the sentiments from the set. I added a Whip Cream Button tied with Hemp Cord to balance the layout.

On the inside I used the smallest size of the Open Hexagon Borders Die-namics to create the decorative element then stamped the girl with Jellybean Green ink and added another sentiment from Pure Innocence Warm Wishes.

**********

Next I used Pure Innocence Warm Wishes again, combined with Document It - Captured Memories, to create a sweet friendship card. 


I started with a square base of Whip Cream, then added a layer of Kraft and patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas collection. I added a strip of Kraft grosgrain ribbon to divide the two patterned papers. I used the Insert It - 3x4 Insert Die-namics to cut out the Nightshift Blue layer in the background, which coordinates absolutely perfectly with the Insert It - InstaFrame Die-namics...love...which I used for the image panel, cut out of Kraft cardstock. I stamped the frame with the grid from Journal It - Graph Paper Notes with Memento Toffee Crunch.

For the image I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card, which had also been cut out using the Insert It - InstaFrame Die-namics. I coloured her with copic markers then added a square of bling to highlight just how cute she is.

I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream flag for the sentiment from Document It - Captured Memories, which I stamped with Memento Nautical Blue. I added a camera accent thanks to the Accent It - Cute Cameras Die-namics...another love...and tucked a pretty swirl in behind, which I cut out using the Sentimental Flourish Die-namics

On the inside I stamped Pure Innocence Warm Wishes again and added the friendship sentiment from the set.
