MFTeaser Time | Day 2

Hello there!  It's time for My Favorite Things April Teasers and this month we are switching things up to make it even more amazing for you!  Head on over to the MFT Blog for all the fun details, you definitely want to check them out!

All of the new products will be available on April 9th at 10 PM in the MFT Boutique.

I have been stamping, stamping, stamping and have quite a few projects to share with you today.  First up is a card I made using Cupcake Cutie.  



I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut her out and then popped her up over some Collectable "Memorable" 6x6 paper from My Mind's Eye, which I cut out using one of the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics.  I added a Pink Lemonade Button, which I wrapped around the banner with white perle thread.  The scallops are one of the new Open Simply Scallops Trio Die-namics.


I used more of the same patterned paper inside the card and stamped the sentiment from the set in Black Licorice Ink and then colored in the little heart with a Copic Marker.



Here are the items I used for this card - all the new products I used will be available on April 9th at 10 PM Eastern.




Next I have another card using the same set, Cupcake Cutie, but this card has a completely different look than my first.  I added some background stamping along with the new Blueprints 2 Die-namics set. 



I started by stamping the large circles from Darling Dots in Sno Cone Ink.  To make the balloons, I stamped patterns from the new set Mod Borders in various MFT Ink on matching card stock and then stamped the balloon from Cupcake Cutie in Black Licorice Ink, and cut them out.  I added some white perle thread to each and wrapped it around the red flag from the Blueprints 2 Die-namics set.


The inside is ready for a nice personal note and I simply stamped the little dog in Black Licorice Ink and added some straight stitches.


Here are the items I used for this card - all the new products I used will be available on April 9th at 10 PM Eastern.



Next up is a little set of treat boxes I made using the Scalloped Treat Box Die-namics, which is perfect for little party favors.



For each box, I cut out the Scalloped Treat Box Die-namics (one for the front and one for the back) and stamped this sweet little dog from Cupcake Cutie and the sentiment from Sweet Roses in Black Licorice Ink.  I stamped the dog again on Kraft Card Stock and on a scrap of patterned paper so I could paper piece the image.  I added the grass, which is cut from the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics. After trimming the grass from the edges of the front panel, I glued the pieces of the box together.


Here are the items I used for these boxes - all the new products I used will be available on April 9th at 10 PM Eastern.



And last, I have another card using one of the Blueprints 2 Die-namics sketches, which you can download at the MFT Blog.



This sweetie is back and the center of attention with this card.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copic Markers.  I wanted to use the oval frame in the Blueprints 2 Die-namics set, but she is too big to feature inside the frame, so I cut her out and popped her up over the outside.  


I used the flag elements again on the inside of the card and then stamped the cupcake stand in Kraft Ink and split the sentiment up this time, inking the 'happy' first, cleaned off the stamp and then stamped the birthday underneath in Hot Fudge Ink. LOVE this deep, rich brown ink!


Here are the items I used for this card - all the new products I used will be available on April 9th at 10 PM Eastern.
