MFTeaser - I Heart You

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

Today is all about hearts with the new Lisa Johnson Designs sets Homespun Hearts and Hearts and Stitches. The new Rustic Hearts Die-namics coordinate perfectly with the hearts in Homespun Hearts.


I created a clean and simple card using these new products, and the layout is FTL221.

I started with a base of Whip Cream cardstock then added a layer of Bubblegum and Kraft. I stamped the stitches from Hearts and Stitches with Versamagic Cloud White ink all around the edges of the Kraft layer. Next I used the small heart background stamp, also from Hearts and Stitches, to stamp the three rows of hearts. The stamp is longer than what you see on my card but I didn't want the hearts to overlap the stitching, so I simply masked the sides of the Kraft layer using two post-it notes. Once the white ink was dry I stamped the sentiment from Homespun Hearts with Memento Tuxedo Black. In hindsight I probably should have used black embossing powder to make it stand out a little more. Doh!

I used the Rustic Hearts Die-namics to cut out three hearts from Bubblegum and Wild Cherry card stocks, then I stamped them with the coordinating stamp from Homespun Hearts. I used MFT Wild Cherry Ink to stamp on the pink heart and Versamagic Cloud White to stamp on the two red hearts. I placed foam tape under the pink heart for a little dimension and finished it with a Berrylicious button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I combined more stamps from Homespun Hearts to created the little scene.
