MFT's October Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to MFT's October Blog Hop and Shop. This is such a fun release! If you came here from Megan's blog you are in the right place. To start at the beginning of the hop go on over to Kim's blog.

My projects use one of the new Pure Innocence stamps, Don't Open Until. The sentiments in this set make the stamp set perfect for cards throughout the year!

First up is a birthday card! The sweet image is colored with Copics and attached to a little kraft envelope with a tag inside. I added machine stitching and twine. Notice the cute little button?


I stamped one the sentiments in the set and attached it with one of the buttons from the Die-namics Button Quartet.

On the inside I stamped the Birthday sentiment from the set and added a border using the Scalloped Scallop die.

Next up I made a gift bag for the holidays. She is colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced. I used the Jumbo Scallop Die for the borders at the bottom of the bag.

I used the "Don't Open Until" sentment again, but this time added "Christmas". I made a tag for my bag and attached it with a small cloths pin. I sponged on some red distress ink on the wooden pin and add a button tied with twine.


My final embellishment is a rose made with the new Die-namics Rolled Rose Die and added leaves cut with the leaf die the comes with the Dienamics Flower Trio and Leaf Trio. I think it is the perfect touch.

Well that is it for me! You can find all the new products HERE!

Now it is time to hop on over to the very sweet, talented, and supportive, Joanne's Blog!

Thanks!
Melody
