MFTeaser - Make a Wish

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

Today is all about our newest stamp designer...our very own Mona Pendleton has designed some amazing products: Dandelion Wishes stamp set, the coordinating Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics, and the Distressed Background BlocksAll the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on May 7th at 10pm EST.

I used the new Mini Album Square Scallop STAX Die-namics to create the card base from Steel Blue card stock.


Then I set to work distressing the card base by first stamping the circles from Distressed Background Blocks with white chalk ink, then I stamped the chicken wire with Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink. Who am I kidding though, it really wasn't work at all getting this distressed look since all the distressing is built right into the stamps. Sweet! Thanks for DE-stressing the distressing process Mona!

Then I created the main image panel by trimming a rectangle of Sno Cone and stamping it with the chicken wire image from Distressed Background Blocks using Sno Con Premium Dye Ink. Then I used my edge distressing tool to rough it up even more. I used the Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics to cut out the Smooth White cardtsock for the flower. I stamped the stem with Factory Green Premium Dye Ink and stamped the dandelion bloom with Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink. I used the two bloom images...the first one was stamped off onto scratch paper first to get a lighter yellow for the main impression, then I stamped the second image at full strength yellow, so there's a little definition in the flower.

For the sentiment I used the Label 4 STAX Die-namics to cut out the small Kraft label and stamped a sentiment from Dandelion Wishes with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I added a Steel Blue button tied with Hemp Cord to finish it off.

Hop on over to the MFT Blog for more inspiration from the  design team and to see the new products. MFT is giving away one $75 prize for each teaser day, so don't miss your chance to win!

A very stunning card. I would really love to see a picture of how you position the die to cut this card. Just can't seem to wrap my head around it. Maybe if I give it a try I could figure it out. Hmmm a challenge...
