Tonight I made a card using the new Lightbulb Die-namics, along with Laina's new set, Watt's Up?



I started with a Smooth White Card Stock base and then stamped the Pinstripe Background, horizontally, in Grout Gray Ink.  I cut out the lightbulb in Smooth White Card Stock as well and then sponged on some Lemon Drop and Banana Split Ink in the center of the bulb, working toward the outer edges.  I cut out the coil and twisty base from glitter paper.  Fun!  The sentiment is stamped twice, once in Black Licorice Ink, omitting the LIGHTBULB, and then again in Jellybean Green Ink.


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!
