MFTeaser - Sweet Friend

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

I have a sweet friend card today that I created using the new Tropical Sensations stamp set and Tropical Sensations Die-namics from the Mona Pendleton Designs line. All the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on July 9th at 10pm EDT. Hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers and for the amazing prize info!


I started with a card base of Primitive Cream then added a layer of Hot Fudge. I used the gorgeous new Modern Morocco Die-namics to cut out the Kraft background layer, and placed it on some Sno Cone for a pop of light blue. I love this look!!!! I played along with the Paper Players 152 tic tac toe challenge of using blue, bling, and friendship.

That gorgeous flower and leaves were cut out using the Tropical Sensation Die-namics. I stamped the flower from Tropical Sensations using Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink and added the center detail with new Tangy Orange Premium Dye Ink. The leaves were stamped with Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink onto the Sour Apple cut outs.

I stamped the sentiment with Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink then added a row of clear rhinestones, which I coloured with my YR18 copic marker. I added definition to the sentiment strip by backing it with Tangy Orange. I used the Open Simply Scallops Trio Die-namics to cut out the Tangy Orange scallop and layered it onto the Orange Fizz scallop which I cut out using the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics. LOVE that they layer perfectly!!!

On the inside I stamped another flower and sentiment from Tropical Sensations.

Here are the supplies I used:
