But in case you want a little more inspiration, 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 around because there's a $50 Gift Voucher hidden on one of the blogs.
I used You Make My Day to create three cards for tonight's post. I really like the sentiments in this set.
First up is my butterflies card.
I couldn't resist choosing butterfly patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Dolled Up collection. I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Steel Grey and stitched on the patterned paper. I used the Designer Labels 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft element to anchor all the smaller elements. The layout is RS45.
I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream and Sno Cone flags, but I ran the straight end through the flag again to have fishtails on both ends. I stamped the sentiment with the new Black Licorice ink...love! It's the ink I reach for now for any black stamping except if I'm colouring with copic markers. It's more black than Memento Tuxedo black and seems to stamp the lines just a little bolder.
I used the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics to cut out the green patterned flourish and added a Pink Lemonade butterfly which I cut out using the Notched Tag Die-namics.
My second card is very clean and simple.
I started with a base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Pink Lemonade and another layer of Whip Cream which I ran part way through my modern wallpaper embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Ink.
For the accent I added a strip of Pink Lemonade grosgrain ribbon and used the new Rustic Hearts Die-namics to cut out the two hearts. One heart is cut from Pink Lemonade and the other is cut from a patterned paper from the Carta Bella Devoted collection.
For my last card I went with another clean layout but added more colour.
I started with a Whip Cream card base again, then added a layer of Sno Cone and Tangy Orange cardstock. I ran the Tangy Orange layer through my swiss dots embossing folder.
I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the patterned paper flags (from the Authentique Fresh collection). I stamped the sentiment from You Make My Day onto the Whip Cream flag using Black Licorice ink.
I used the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics to cut out the grey flourish and used the gorgeous Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics to cut out the patterned paper for the flower. Check out the dimension on this beauty. Isn't it gorgeous!!!
