MFT {Pure Innocence} VIP New Product Tour

Hi!!  It's time for the My Favorite Things VIP New Product Tour!!  The Pure Innocence Fun in the Sun VIP Collection is available NOW - right HERE!  This collection is a LIMITED QUANTITY product that gives you the opportunity to purchase upcoming stamp sets and a new Die-namics die TWO WEEKS early.

So, what is included in the Pure Innocence Fun in the Sun VIP Collection?   For only $34.90, you will receive:
  • Pure Innocence Hula Girl stamp set
  • Pure Innocence Sprinkler Girl stamp set
  • Fun in the Sun Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
  • Hibiscus Die-namics
  • Notched Border Die-namics

I made 2 cards for today's tour - first up is Pure Innocence Hula Girl:

Hawaii?  Oh, yes please!!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copic markers.  How gorgeous is this new Hibiscus Die-namics???  I love the embossed detail the die gives the flower and leaves - LOVE it!!  I used the Notched Border Die-namics to create the little tabs peeking out under the image panel and I stamped the sentiment on the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.  The layout is Retro Sketches RS#12.

I stamped the image again on some Summer Fresh papers and then cut out the grass skirt and cut it in small strips.

Then I fluffed out the strips to make the grass skirt more 3D.

I stamped on the inside as well:

Here I only used the Hibiscus leaf and the sentiment is from Fun in the Sun Sentiments, which is only available with this VIP offer.

Next up is Pure Innocence Sprinkler Girl.

I stamped this sweetie in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic markers and I paper pieced her little swim suit.  I used the Notched Border Die-namics again and used o n of the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics underneath.   I just bought the Sunshine Die-namics and couldn't wait to use it with this VIP special!  The layout is MOJO242.

I did the inside of this card a little differently than I usually do.

I used the same Summer Fresh papers and used the Notched Border Die-namics down the side of the card and hung the sentiment on another Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die.
