MFT August Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to MFT'S August Blog Hop and Shop. If you came here from Susan's Blog you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning of the blog go on over to Kim's Blog.


My cards today are made with this month's Triple Scoop Special, Clearly Sentimental About Harvesting. Simply purchase 3 full sized sets ($15.95 or higher) and receive a FREE set from MFT.

I stamped one of my favorite sentiments from the set, using it in combination with the Framed Greetings die and stamp set. I added a graphic I had in my stash, some stitching, lace, ribbon, and a button I have been hoarding for ages!

I wanted to keep the inside simple so that I could use the card for a number of occasions. The black border is made with the new Die-namics Small Scallops Border Die.

For my second card I used the new Die-namics Sheltering Tree and Leaf Trio. I cut and embossed the tree using Kraft cardstock and then I sponged on distressing ink. Then I added the leaves to my tree. I made a hill from my DP and added stitching, lace, ribbon, and a pearl.

I used another sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental About Harvesting Set, again combined with the Framed Greeting Set.

On the inside I stamped the tree with the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set and add another hill out of DP.

Now it is time to hop on over to the next blog on the HOP! She is this month's Guest Designer, and I have to say one of the sweetest, funniest, and supportive stamper I know, KELLI JO!

Thanks,
Melody
