MFTeaser - Under the Weather

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

Today I've gone a little country with the new Life's Direction stamp set and the Chicken Wire Die-namicsAll the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on May 7th at 10pm EST.

I started with a Whip Cream card base then added a layer of Nightshift Blue. I used the fun Chicken Wire Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream panel. I used the new Insert It - 3x4 Notepad Die-namics to cut out the Natural panel for the main image.


I stamped the weather vane from Life's Direction using Red Hot Premium Dye Ink and added a Red Hot button tied with Hemp Cord.

Along the bottom I stamped one of the sentiments rom Life's Direction with Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink then created the dividing element by using the Dotted Scallop Border Trio Die-namics to cut out the Steel Blue strip. It needed a little pop of colour though so I trimmed a narrow strip of Red Hot cardstock and added some Star Dust Stickles for sparkle.

On the inside I used the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the Steel Blue flag then stamped a sentiment from Western Sentiments using Steel Blue Premium Dye Ink. I added a strip of Red Hot just like on the front of the card. I finished the inside by stamping the horse from Life's Direction with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

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!

Here are the supplies I used:

How clever are you?!?!? I would have never thought to use the notebook die or the scalloped on this piece but you pulled it off with nautical colors even! WOW Well done!!!
