MFT June Release Rewind

Hello there!  Did you enjoy seeing all the projects for the MFT June release?  All of the new products are available in the MFT Boutique right now and the design team is having a little June release rewind party again tonight.  

I have a couple of cards for you today - my first card uses Pure Innocence Gone Fishin'.

I started by stamping her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copic markers.  I used the new Peek-a-Boo Dots Die-namics for the vertical strip and added some patterned paper underneath.

Along the bottom of the image, I added lots and lots of Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics for some banner yumminess.  The layout is FMS89.

I stamped the rest of the sentiment inside the card in Black Licorice Ink.


My next card is a pretty clean & simple card.  I used LJD Blissful Butterflies stamps and coordinating LJD Blissful Butterflies Die-namics.

I stamped the butterfly in Electric Red Ink on Smooth White Card stock and the popped it up over a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics banner.  I stamped the sentiment in Berrylicious Ink.

The sun element is made from the Sun Ray Die-namics and then I added 3 Lemon Drop Buttons in the center.

I used another butterfly from the set for the inside of my card and stamped the sentiment in Kraft Ink.


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of all the designers playing along in today's Release Rewind.

Thanks for stopping by!
