MFTeasers: Day Three!


Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!  Today is the 3rd day of MFTeasers for the newest release from My Favorite Things which is available on Tuesday, August 2 after the release party!  Today is always a favorite day of MFTeasers...it's Pure Innocence Day!

I am SUPER excited about this month's Pure Innocence sets...two of them, Pure Innocence Karate Boy and Pure Innocence Girl (I have a project with her coming up on Tuesday), were concepted by yours truly, and I am just in LOVE with them!  My oldest, Meredith, takes Tae Kwon Do, and I plan on using these sets ALOT!

For my first card today, I am sharing Pure Innocence Karate Boy!  Isn't he SO cute?  I LOVE how he is mid-kick!  I colored him with Copic Markers and then "fussy" cut him out and popped him up with Jody Boosters.  The patterned paper is Dots & Stripes from Echo Park Papers, and I used both the Metropolitan Collection and the Candy Shoppe Collection.

I used the AWESOME Say What? Die-Namics for the word bubble and stamped "Pow Pow" in that.  I used the sentiment, "Have a kickin' birthday" and cut it out with one of the banners from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics.  Tons of stars cut with the Stacking Stars Die-Namics add some pop, as well as anchoring the sentiment flag.  The card base is the delish Orange Fizz cardstock...yum!


On the inside, I added some more patterned paper, stamped this cutie again in Pumpkin Pie, and added "Pow Pow" again!  So fun!


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on this card:




For my second card, I used the GORGEOUS new Pure Innocence Sunflower Girl.  I colored her with Copic Markers and then cut the panel out with Oval Nestabilities.  The patterned paper is Sunshine Broadcast from Sassafras.  The sentiment, "Make Today A Beautiful Day" was stamped and then cut out with the new Bracket Tab Die-Namics (this is a must have imho) and I added some delish ribbon from my pal Corinna's store.  Some stitching and brads finish her off!


The inside features some more patterned paper, as well as another sentiment from this darling set, "A Cloudy Day Is No Match For A Sunny Disposition".  Love that.


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on this card:
