December MFTeasers, Day Two!

 
Happy Sunday, everyone! It's Day Two of MFTeasers, and I have two sets to share with you today! The first is Ice Skating Flopsey. I pulled the colors from the Thrift Shop paper -- I just love the black, red and Fossil together! I used Tea Dye Distress Ink on the gingham ribbon and the twine so they would coordinate better with the Fossil cardstock. The Die-namics Snowflake was covered with Glitzy Glitter, and I applied Stickles to the ice. I also colored the skate blades with a Star Dust pen. This card is really sparkly IRL - the photo doesn't do it justice! :)


 

 

My second card features the new Die-namics Flower Silhouette duo. There are so many ways you can use the die and stamps! Here I stamped the solid image in Soft Sky and the flower outline in Soft Suede. 


I used the die to cut out a stamped flower image and a solid Soft Suede image. I placed the solid shape behind the cut-out flower and popped them up on dimensionals.  The curved card edge was created with the Die-namics Perfect Bracket Edge. I distressed and inked the edges of the card panels.
