MFT'S March New Product Tour

Hi all and thanks for stopping by for MFT'S February New Product Tour! All the new MFT Stamps and Die-namics are available now! Stop by the MFT Blog for the links to all the projects the Design Team Members are sharing today!!

I am showcasing the new Inspired by the Front Porch - Spring Stamp Set. This set is just so pretty! I made a three card set to show you each image in the set.  



I wanted to keep the backgrounds on my cards simple and showcase the pretty stamped images. For both the card base and card front I used MFT Kraft Card Stock and just added some embossing with Cuttlebug embossing flowers. The images are matted in Gumdrop Green Cardstock.


I wanted to create the look of watercolors, so I colored the images with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers. The sentiment is stamped in one of this month's new ink colors, Gumdrop Green. I added a MFT Button, tied on with twine. 


I used the Simply Scallops Medium Border Die-namics to create the scallop bottom and added machine stitching in a heavy weight thread.


On this one I added a brad from my stash. The sentiments on my cards are cut out with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX.







You can find all the new product right HERE!  Don't forget to head over the MFT Blog for the list of designer sharing more inspiration with the new products!
