MFTeaser - Cool Beans

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

Today the design team is introducing a fun new line called Doodle Garden. The images are adorable and I know you'll love them as much as I do. This month there are three new stamp sets in this line, Doodle Garden Far Out, Doodle Garden Sweet Friend, and Doodle Garden I'm Raptor Round Your Finger. I had good intentions of inking up all three of them for today's post, but I'm under the weather with a nasty cold and it took me all day to make just one card (but I LOVE it!).


I used Doodle Garden Far Out and some fun bright colours. This little darling really reminds me of one of my nieces...she has blonde hair and wears glasses, and I know she's going to love receiving this card in the mail. I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added layers of Orange Fizz and Blu Raspberry cardstock. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye A Mother's Love collection, and I added a strip of Orange Fizz grosgrain ribbon to separate the two patterns. The layout is SSS191 from the Sweet Stop Sketch blog.

For the image I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending card then coloured her with copic markers. I added dimension to the image by popping the heart and the flower in her hair on foam tape, and I gave her glasses two coats of clear glaze pen for a glassy look. I used the Rectangle 1 STAX and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream and Orange Fizz layers then I embossed the orange one with my polka dots embossing folder.

For the flower accent I used the two bottom layers of the new Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics to cut out Orange Fizz felt and orange patterned paper. Then I added a Blu Raspberry button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I simply stamped the girl with Memento Tangelo ink and added a sentiment from the set, stamped with the new MFT Black Licorice ink. I still use Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp images that I'll be colouring with copic markers, but the Black Licorice ink is my new "go to" for any other black stamping. The coverage of the new MFT ink is amazing!!
