MFT New Product Tour | Part 2


Hello!  Welcome to the second night of the MFT New Product Tour!  I'm back to share a couple of cards I made using à la modes Reflection, which will be available for purchase at 10PM Eastern tonight.  There are so many amazing new products this month and you are definitely going to want to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. 

For my first card I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Card stock and then colored her with Copic Markers. 



I stamped her again on some Collectable "Unforgettable" 6x6 paper from My Mind's Eye and then cut out the dress so I could paper piece (and don't forget to paper piece the reflection too!)  I cut her out with a Rectangles STAX Die-namics and then matted it with some Hot Fudge Card Stock.  The sentiment is stamped on a Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics, which I tucked underneath the image panel.  The scallops are one of the new Open Simply Scallops Trio Die-namics dies and I added some zigzag stitching with the die cut.  


I stamped another sentiment from the set inside the card in Hot Fudge Ink, which is the most gorgeous brown ink - it is so deep and rich.  I love it!



For my second card, I used the same paper piecing method, except with some striped paper and I added the sentiment on a different Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics and added it over the top of the image panel.



Underneath the image panel, I added a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics in another scrap of patterned paper and then added a trio of pearls underneath.


The inside of the card is stamped simply in Hot Fudge Ink and I added more zigzag stitching.


Please be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more release details and you can also catch a peek at the other designers playing along in tonight's New Product Tour!

You can find these delicious items in the MFT Boutique - the new products will be available tonight at 10PM Eastern.
