MFT Welcomes Lisa Johnson!!!


Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!!

MFT has some big news today...and I mean HUGE news!  MFT is pleased and proud to welcome the one and only Lisa Johnson to the MFT Team!!!   Lisa will be joining us as an illustrator for her own line of stamps and dies, Lisa Johnson Designs, and will also be designing alongside our other amazing Team Members.

Lisa's first stamp set and Die-namics dies will be revealed on August 1 during our August Release Teasers and will be available for purchase on August 7 at 10 PM EST. Until then, make sure you follow her at Poppy Paperie to be inspired by her fabulous work!

I made a card to welcome such a rock star to the team, and of course, I had to use the a la modes in Rock Star!  I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card, colored her with Copic Markers and then added glitter to her guitar.  I cut out the panel and layered it with Kraft Cardstock using the Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics.


I used the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics for the sentiment panel and stamped "Rock Star".  Here is a closeup of my coloring too.  She is one of my favorite a la modes to color!


I created the flag panel with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics out of My Favorite Felt in Wild Cherry.  I added a border using the felt as well with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-Namics.   I also added some Berrylicious Grosgrain Ribbon as well as three buttons, Berrylicious, Red Hot and Lemon Drop Yellow.  LOVE them.


On the inside I stamped her again in Red Currant Fresh Ink and added another sentiment, "You Rock".  I used the Square STAX 1 Die-Namics and Square STAX 2 Die-Namics for the sentiment panel and layer.


The layout is the sketch for the August Guest Designer Contest!  Isn't it an AWESOME sketch?  I LOVE it!  You can get all the deets on how to enter HERE:
