MFTeasers | Day 7


Welcome to the last day of Teasers for My Favorite Things!  Today is full of inspiration for you AND we have some fun prizes for you too, so be sure to hop on over to the MFT Blog to see how you can win some MFT goodies!

All of these new products will be available for purchase on September 3rd @ 10 PM Eastern

I have a couple of cards for you today, showing off Large Scale Backgrounds.  This set is this month's Free with $60 stamp set, which you can earn for FREE!  Check out all the details, here.



For this card, I stamped the diamond background in Sour Apple Ink and repeated the image to fill the Sour Apple Card Stock card base.  I cut out a Star STAX Die-namics in Lemon Drop Card Stock and then stamped the polka dot background in Lemon Drop Ink.  I used the LLD Insert It - 3x4 Notebook Paper Die-namics in Smooth White Card Stock and then stamped the writing paper image from LLD Journal It - Head of the Class in Steel Grey Ink.  The layout is Mojo Monday's MOJO309.


Here are the MFT products I used on this card - all of the new products will be available for purchase on September 3rd at 10 PM Eastern.



My second card is a pretty clean and simple thank you card.  I used Large Scale Backgrounds to create a faux layer on this one.



I stamped the polka dots in Kraft Ink and then layered a Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics in Jellybean Green Card Stock over the top, which I also stamped on with this fabulous Large Scale Backgrounds set.  The sentiment from Sending Thanks is stamped in Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I did add a couple Electric Red Buttons for a fun little accent.  The layout for this card is Retro Sketches RS#79.


Here are the MFT products I used on this card - all of the new products will be available for purchase on September 3rd at 10 PM Eastern.

Both cards are awesome. I really like the steel grey notebook paper vs. the traditional white. Nice contrast. The large scale background stamp is so amazing.
