Hoppin' and Shoppin' with MFT!

Hi there! You've come to my stop on the MFT Release Shop Hop! If you've just come here by way of Kerry's Blog, welcome! If not, you'll want to go back to the beginning with Kim's Blog. I hope you've enjoyed all the projects so far -- this month is full of fantastic new products, don't you think?? :)

On my card I used two new sets, Who's That Gardening Girl? and Clearly Sentimental about Gardens (this month's Triple Scoop set). This idea popped in my head as soon as I saw the sentiment, so I placed the flowers in a mug from the previously-released set Coffee? Tea?. The flower image has more flowers than would fit in the mug, so I did some very careful masking to stamp only three flowers. Then I paper pieced the mug.


I also used the new Die-namics Rolled Flower Die -- LOVE it!!! I kinda smushed and rolled the edges of the flowers, then I added Spring Glittered Garnishes to the centers.


All of the new products are available at My Favorite Things right NOW -- click HERE to see everything that's Brand Spankin' New! :)

Next you're off to visit the mega-talented Megan Lock -- I'm sure she has something fantastic to share with you! Go on... check it out! :)

Thanks so much for hopping by!
