MFT {Pure Innocence} VIP New Product Tour

Hello, hello!!  It's time for the My Favorite Things VIP New Product Tour!!  The Pure Innocence Classic Kids VIP Collection is available NOW - right HERE!  This is such a fantastic way to collect these sweet little Pure Innocence images and you can get them 2 weeks early with this offer!

So, what is included in the Pure Innocence Classic Kids VIP Collection?   For only $26.50, you will receive:
  • Pure Innocence Violin Girl Stamp Set
  • Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles Stamp Set
  • Classic Kids Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set which will never be offered for sale or be available again.  $9 value for FREE)
  • Monarch Border Die-namics Die

I made 2 cards using each of these darling little PI's - first up is Violin Girl.

I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored her with Copic markers; then I fussy cut her out and popped her up over an Oval Decorative Doily Duo Die-namics die-cut.  There is a new Monarch Border Die-namics die included with this bundle as well, and I've used it along the bottom of my card.  I also used Joanne B's tutorial for tying a cheater's bow.

I stamped the inside of the card with Memento Desert Sand ink and then stamped the sentiment over the top of the image with Memento Tuxedo Black.

Here are the Copics and Die-namics I used with this card:

Next up is Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles.

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink as well and colored her with Copic markers.  I used the Monarch Border Die-namics die along the side and added some rhinestones to it as well.  I stamped the sentiment on the Dog Tag Die-namics die and the tied it onto the bow with some embroidery thread.  Apparently my camera has had an allergic reaction to red and went a little bonkers.  Sorry about the weird photo here.

I stamped a little bit inside this card with Memento Desert Sand as well and sewed some messy stitches around the outside.  The layout is sort of a Jen Shults' DS33, at least it started off that way and then took a little detour.

Here are the Copics and Die-namics I used for this card:
