MFT Previews: Day 4

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

Can you tell that I am just having a BALL as the MFT July Guest Designer? It's such an honor to be able to preview all of the new sets alongside the amazing MFT Design Team!!

Today, I have two brand new sets to share with you (as well as peeks of THREE...yes, three, new Die-Namics!) all of which will be available tommorow, July 7th!

For my first card, I used the SUPER sweet Jolinne - Just For You! Isn't she SO darling? I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.

I cut out and embossed the focal panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe. I added some Crystal glitter to the butterflies as well as the flowers. All the patterned paper is from Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye, and I cut out one of the patterns with the Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass and added it to my focal panel.

I sewed all the panels with my sewing machine and the sentiment, "Just For You", also from this darling new set, was cut with the smallest die with the Tags Trio by Spellbinders. I sponged this panel as well and attached it to my card along with a poofy flower I created out of the same Quite Contrary paper and a Cuttlebug Die. I added more glitter to the flower as well!!

For my second card today, I used a GORGEOUS new set called Framed Greetings! This set is going to become a staple in my stamp collection! I LOVE the sentiments and fonts!!!

This card also features THREE new Die-Namics Dies...can you tell what they are?

The patterned paper is Free Bird by My Minds Eye and I used the same papers to create the rolled flowers. These were SUPER easy to make with a fab new product from MFT (wink wink!). I kept the rest of the card super simple and went with a Cream Grosgrain Ribbon and some Chocolate Linen Thread.
