MFTeasers: Day Five!


Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  Today is the last day of MFTeasers for the big My Favorite Things release tonight!

I have two sets to share with you today...and if you are a VIP and picked up the August VIP Kit, you know that one of the sets I am talking about is the FABULOUS Sunflower Who's That Girl!  I just love her!

This layout is one of my favorites...pretty simple with four squares of patterned paper, in this case I used Splendid from Authentique (swoon!) and then a circular focal point.  I am a sucker for a WTG in a circle!  She is colored with Copic Markers and I paper pieced her dress with one of the same patterns I used on the card.  She is cut out with Circle Nestabilities and layered on a panel cut with the new Open Scallop Doily Duo.  The sentiment, "Count Your Blessings" was stamped onto a panel that was cut with the Bracket Tab Die-Namics.  Three wooden buttons threaded different ways with Charcoal Twine, along with a big old gingham bow (courtesy of Kim's sweet daughter!), finish off the front.


For the inside, I added a panel cut with the Well Worn Label Die-Namics and I stamped another sentiment from the set, "Wishing You Sunshine and Sunflowers".  Love it!


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



Next up is this month's Triple Scoop Set, All Smiles!  All of the patterned paper on this one is Lost and Found - Madison Avenue from My Minds Eye (love) and it's also for one of the upcoming DTGD Challenges on SCS (are you a fan club member?).

I stamped the sentiment, "Your Smile Brightens My Day" and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities.  I layered it over a piece of Hot Fudge Cardstock cut with the Open Scallop Doily Duo.  The flower was created with the Pretty Posies Die-Namics out of one of the patterns and adorned with a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics (currently being restocked).  I added a Leafy Flourish under the flower along with some ribbon.  The border was cut with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics.


There are SO many darling sentiments in this set, I had to add another inside.  I chose "May Every Part Of Your Day Have Happy In It" and layered it with Well Worn Label Die-Namics


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

Not one but two fabulous cards Jodi. The first one is very striking with the various papers and the paper pieced dress (you are really making me want to cut in to my Splendid pad). The second one is very understated and pretty. I really like that sentiment set.
