MFT February Blog Hop

Welcome to the MFT February release blog hop! If you just happened upon my blog and want to start at the beginning, hop on over to Kim's blog!

Tonight I am sharing some projects I made with this month's new TRIPLE SCOOP SET, Clearly Sentimental about You! The Triple Scoop is FREE with the purchase of three full sets at $15.95 or higher.

I love this sentiment set! Not only are the sentiments beautiful, they allow me to take images I already own and give them and my card a new meaning!

My first card is made with the new set, Miss You Much Jolinne but the sentiments are fromClearly Sentimental About You. It is a little ironic that this set came out this month. Yesterday my youngest daughter left home to study aboard for a semester in Praque. This is the card that is tucked in her suitcase!

I stamped the imagae with Memento Black ink. She is colored with copics and the top and bottom suitcases are paper pieced. I cut out the window from the DP and popped it up. There is sewing and distressiing around the edges. I weaved twine through the lace and gathered it up a bit and added a ribbon.

On the inside is another sentiment from the set. I LOVE this one!
Next up I used a Pure Innocence stamp from a previous release, My Balloon and sentiments from the Triple Scoop set. She is colored with copics and I change her balloon by masking off the original balloon and adding the felt heart. I did a little sewing, distressed the edges, and added eyelet lace, ribbon and a button tied with twine. The sweet sentiment finishes it off.

Here is the inside with another sentiment.

Now it time to hop along! HOP on over to SHERRIE'S Blog! I am sure she has one of her wonderful project to share!
