MFTeaser - Hi, Friend

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

My card today features images from the Inspired by the Front Porch - Spring stamp set, and I couldn't resist using the new Blueprints 1 Die-namics again. I tell ya, it's a pretty sweet system!!

In case you don't already know, here's a little bit about Blueprints - The Foundation for Your Creativity. Whether you have limited time or simply need a creative jump start; Blueprints is your answer. A design plan and building blocks in one revolutionary product. Follow the provided sketches or mix and match the elements provided and become your own architect. Leave the heavy lifting to us.


I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Pink Lemonade. The polka dot paper is from the Glitz Pretty in Pink collection. I used the Blueprints 1 Die-namics to cut out the Hot Fudge strip in the background and also to cut out the Kraft scalloped rectangle.

I stamped the beautiful tulips image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured it with copic markers. I used the Blueprints 1 Die-namics again to cut out both the image panel and the Pink Lemonade rectangle. I inked around the edges of the image panel with Kraft Premium Dye Ink to soften it a little.

If you look at the Blueprints 1 sketches you'll notice that I took a little liberty with placement of the small tab, and moved it to the bottom of the image instead of at the top. I cut out the tab from Hot Fudge cardstock then embossed the sentiment with vanilla embossing powder. I tied it in place with some Hemp Cord.

On the inside I used the strip die from Blueprints 1 Die-namics to cut out the Kraft piece then stamped another sentiment from Inspired by the Front Porch - Spring using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I stamped another of the flower images with Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink on the main panel.
