Tonight I made a few cards using Laina Lamb's new set, LLD Friend Request.



I paired this stamp set with Smart Phone Die-namics and started by cutting out the phone in Spearmint and Smooth White Card Stock.  I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Tooth Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.


I added a little Red Hot heart on the top and used the Mini Delicate Doily in Pink Lemonade Card Stock for a little accent.  The layout is from Seize the Sketch, STS #13, and the color combo is Color Throwdown 278.


You can find these fabulous items waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:



Up next I have another card showing off more of the sentiments from LLD Friend Request.



I started by cutting out the Sun Ray Die-namics in Smooth White and Pink Lemonade Card Stock and then stamped the sentiment in Sweet Tooth Ink on Natural Card Stock.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added a Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics in Smooth White and stamped the HELLO in Spearmint Ink.  I added a little row of Red Hot hearts using the Smart Phone Die-namics and then sprinkled a few rhinestones about.


Here are the MFT products I used in this card:



My last card is super clean & simple and it's my favorite.



I started with a Smooth White Card Stock base and then along the edge, I stamped an image from LJD Textile Backgrounds in Red Hot Ink.  I cut out the large speech bubble from Smart Phone Die-namics and added the Hello in Spearmint Card Stock.  Then I cut out the smaller speech bubble out of the main card layer and stamped inside the negative space.  So fun!  I really like this technique and really need to remember to use it more.


These fabulous products are waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:
