MFTeasers!

Hello there! Happy Monday! I am so thrilled to be the My Favorite Things Guest Designer for August! I mean really, pinch me!! :) Thanks so much to Kim and the MFT girls for choosing me! FIVE new sets will be released Wednesday during the MFT Release Cocktail Party. Join me and the MFT Design Team on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers from 9-11 pm Wednesday night! You can find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer!! :)

For my first MFTeaser I used the set Totally Witchin'. When I saw these ingredients jars, I immediately had the idea to do a recipe card. On the front, I stamped the jars in a row, then I stamped them a second time on scrap cardstock. I colored the first images with Copics. I colored the second set of labels, cut them out, and applied them over the first labels using rolled up glue dots for dimension. The image panel and mat were cut and embossed with my Rectangle Nestabilities. The background was embossed with my Cuttlebug and D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

Here's the inside of the card. I printed out this Playdoh recipe on the computer, then I stamped the cauldron and steam images. I thought this would be so cute tied to a Halloween cookie cutter! :)

For my second card, I used the new MFT set Monster Squad. Isn't this just the cutest bunch of trick-or-treaters? I used the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug folder on this background. I colored the image with Copics and sponged around the edges of the image and sentiment. I added black dots to the scalloped circle.

I'll be back tomorrow with another MFTeaser, so I hope you'll stop back! Check out what the MFT Design Team has done, too!! Thanks so much for stopping by today -- have a great day! :)
