MFT New Product Tour - You Make My Day

It's finally time to shop for all the fabulous new MFT products we teased you with this past week. You'll find it all in the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique.

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!!!

You Make My Day is the Triple Scoop set for this release and that means you'll receive it FREE with a qualifying $60 order. Just remember to add it to your cart when the MFT website prompts you. It's that easy!
