You Have My Heart, Thank You

After seven days of MFT teasers, it's finally time to shop shop shop!

You'll find all the new products by clicking on the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique. The design team has a little more inspiration for you though with a recap of the fun new products. Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of participating designers.

I worked with the Bold Statements stamp set.

For my first card I combined the Bold Statements with Accent It-Celebrate Die-namics.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Wild Cherry. I built the rest of the card on a Kraft layer, using the Fluttering Hearts Die-namics to cut out the tiny hearts. I love how the red shows through them. I used the Accent It-Celebrate Die-namics to cut out the word "love" from Wild Cherry, which I layered under the Smooth White sentiment panel.

I stamped the sentiment from Bold Statements with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and added a row of rhinestones for some bling. I tied in the black by using the border from Blueprints 5 Die-namics to cut out the Black Licorice border.

On the inside I used the Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics to cut out the Kraft and Wild Cherry hearts, and used the Sentiment Strips 2 Die-namics to cut out the Smooth White strip. The sentiment is from the new Who's That Girl? Bunches of Birthday Wishes.

**********
Next up is a simple thank you card, and it's nice and flat for easy mailing.


I really liked the rainbow chevron effect I did on the inside of this card, so I replicated it here. I used the two chevrons I cut off of the stamp from Jumbo Mod Borders and stamped it repeatedly on the diagonal using Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink, Grape Jelly Premium Dye Ink, Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, and Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment from Bold Statements using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I added a layer of Grape Jelly and stitched around the edges for a little interest.

On the inside I simply stamped another greeting from Bold Statements using Grape Jelly Premium Dye Ink.

Have fun shopping the MFT Boutique for all the new products!

I like how you used the sentiment strip inside your card. I need to finish off the insides of my cards more. It really completes the look!

All beautiful, the red white on black on the kraft are very striking and the pops of colors on all the white is really very pretty :)
