MFT's August Teasers Begin!

Welcome to Day 1 of MFT'S August Teasers. Today I am really excited to share Lisa Johnson's first stamp set for My Favorite Things, Circus Spectacular


For my first project with the new stamp set, I made a birthday card and a gift card holder. I am loving the style and feel of this new stamp set!


I stamped the Circus Tent with Amuse Ink in Cherry. I just love the vintage feel of this tent! I used the Circle STAX Die-namics to cut out and mount the tent. Then I stamped the giraffe with Amuse Ink in Toffee and used the die from the set to cut it out.

Then I used the Ticket Strip Die-namic to create my ticket with a sentiment for the stamp set. My final touches are twine in Peapod, eyelet lace and MFT Buttons. My papers are from October Afternoon Cakewalk.


Next I covered the top with patterned paper, added stars with the Stacking Stars Die-namics and two more tickets.


I decorated the inside of the tin with more of the stamps and dies.
