MFTeasers: Day Six!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  Welcome to Day 6 of MFTeasers!  The big release is tomorrow night, but first, we have Pure Innocence Day!  YAY!!!

We have FIVE new Pure Innocence sets being released this month, and my first card features Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy!  

We have a dear friend who is a fireman with the FDNY (Fire Department New York), and he was my inspiration while creating this card.  I colored Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy with Copic Markers and fussy cut him out.  I used Spica Glitter Pens on the yellow and red parts of his uniform to mimic reflectors.  The layout started with The Sweet Stop Sketch, SSS144 but then the card had a mind of it's own and veered off.

The sentiment, "You're A Lifesaver" is from Pure Innocence Firefighter Girl and I stamped it on a panel of patterned paper cut with the File Tab Die-Namics All of the patterned paper is Dilly Dally from My Minds Eye.  I used the By The Letters Die-Namics and cut out f d n y out of red and black cardstock, then attached them so that they were offset. 


The panel that Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy is on was cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities and embossed with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I used the Skyline Border Die-Namics to add a fun layer to the top rectangle.  LOVE how that came out...here is a closeup:


For the inside I stamped the fire extinguisher from Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy in Real Red ink and then another sentiment from Pure Innocence Firefighter Girl, "Thank You For Your Bravery".  I can't wait to give this to our friend!


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




Next up I have a card using the darling Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles...you may remember her from the Pure Innocence VIP Kit from earlier this month.  I used the SCS Sketch Challenge SC369 for the layout, and all of the patterned paper is Happier from My Minds Eye.  

I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced both her shirt and skirt.  I cut out the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and drew in a frame with my Copic Multiliner.  I left a bit of a space and added two pink brads.  I added a border with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics and added some twine as well.  The flowers and leaves were created with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics, and added pink brads in the center of each flower.  The sentiment, "Pop" was stamped onto a panel cut with the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics.


Here is a closeup of the flowers and leaves.  LOVE this Die-Namics set!


On the inside, I added more patterned paper and stamped this cutie again, this time in Pretty In Pink ink, and I added another sentiment from Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles, "You're So Bubbly".  Love that!


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