MFTeasers: Day Two!


Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!!

Welcome to the second day of MFTeasers for the awesome new September release from My Favorite Things!  Today, I am sharing the gorgeous new Inspired By Flowers 3 with you!

All of the stamp sets in the Inpired By line are so easy to work with!  They are so beautifully drawn, that I have chosen, on today's card, to simply stamp the flower and not color it in.  I just added a bit of a shadow around it with a Copic Marker.  I stamped the flower directly onto a piece of patterned paper, which is all from Lost and Found Two/Breeze from My Minds Eye.  This paper is so gorgeous...I thought it was perfect with this new set!

I split one of the sentiments from this set to use on both the front and inside of my card.  On the front, using the Bracket Tab Die-Namics, I stamped "You Are Beautiful" onto another piece of patterned paper.  I added a twill bow with a button from My Minds Eye and added some brads to the four corners of the focal panel.  Tons of stitching on my machine was added as well.


For the inside, I finished off the sentiment with "Don't You Forget That".  Some more patterned paper, stitching and brads were added too.


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