Happy New Year and welcome to Day 5 of MFT's January Teasers. Today we are previewing two new à la modes - Dip Me in Chocolate and Genie. You can stop by the MFT Blog for the list of designers sharing projects today.


I think Dip Me in Chocolate is such a cute image!! Perfect for many of my friends too! I colored her with Copics and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Behind the image I added a doily cut with the High Tea Doily Die-namic. My fun border is cut with the new Jumbo Monarch Border Die-namic


I added brown gel pen to the chocolate.


I used the Rolled Scallop Flower Die-namic, add a rhinestone to the center, and added it to my crinkled ribbon bow.

MFT January Teasers Day 4


Happy New Years Eve! Hard to believe it is already the last day of 2011. On the 4th day of MFT's January Teasers we are sharing projects with two new stamp and Die-namics set, At the Movies and Monogram AlphabetYou can stop by the MFT Blog for the list of designers sharing projects today.

 

I am using At the Movies Die-namics and Stamp Set to make a gift set that includes a card and coordinating tin to hold a gift card.


I used the large film strip die and stamped Happy Birthday and two rows of stars. I cut a film reel and adhered it to a cream cardstock circle. Then I added some machine stitching and rhinestone flourishes. 


I used a gold glitter pen to fill in the lights on "Birthday". 


On the inside I used the film strip die again and added a ticket.


Next I altered a tin that is the perfect size for a movie gift card. My flower is made with the new Rolled Scallop Flower Die-namic that I cut in MFT Cherry on Top Felt. This flower die is fast becoming one of my favorites. It is a great size for cards and is so easy to put together.


I also added a movie ticket and a camera. 


I added a couple more images from the set to the inside of my tin.

MFT January Teasers Day 3

Hi Everyone! I am back today with another MFT January Teaser. Today the Design Team is sharing projects with two new sentiment sets, Clearly Sentimental About Romance and and Pearls of WisdomYou can stop by the MFT Blog for the list of designers sharing projects today.


I used the Clearly Sentiment Label Die-manic, cut it out twice, once in white and once in the patterned paper. I cut a strip of the label to attach to bottom and stamped the sentiment in red ink. 


I used the new Layered Hearts Die-namic to cut the hearts behind the sentiment and added a pretty brad. My papers are from Echo Park Yours Truly. I also added machine stitching and ribbon.


On the inside I just added a heart and left it blank. I think this sentiment could work for many different occasions, Valentine's Day, Wedding Anniversary, or maybe just a note to someone special.

One Last Christmas Card!

It's Friday, two days before Christmas!! I went to Costco and the grocery store today so I think I am ready! And I made one last Christmas card for a special gift. 


For inspiration I used this week's Challenge over that the Shabby Tea Room, 'A Kraft-y Christmas'. The challenge is to use kraft, red, silver, newsprint and star. I love the red and kraft together! My papers are October Afternoon, Holiday Style. I love the Christmas newsprint. 



I created by wreath using Taylored Expressions Snowflake Wreath, Seasonal Wreath Die, and the Basic Bow Die. I added Taylor's Crystal Twinkles to the wreath and mounted it on a small kraft envelope.


 I added silver twine and silver jingle bells along with a star stick pin.


When you pull the tag out of the envelope it looks like this. I used a sentiment and stamp from the Wreaths of Joy stamp set.





Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Thanks for all your support and sweet comment throughout the year!
