January MFTeasers - Day 3


Happy Sunday, everyone! Today's MFTeasers are of the new Pure Innocence sets! You all are in for a treat, because this month's images are fabulous! My first sample is of Carnation, which features January's flower of the month. Knowing that there will be more PI monthly flowers in the future (hint, hint), I made a calendar which can be changed each month. The 6x6 calendar page covers the photo opening in the frame and hangs from two small nails.


I started with an unfinished Michaels frame, and I gave it a coat of Tattered Rose Distress Crackle Paint. I took a page from the Restoration 6x6 pad and matted it with Blue Bayou cardstock to create the background for the calendar and image. The calendar is from the 2011 Calendar Templates. I used the new Die-namics Layered Label die to create the frames for the sentiments.
.

I colored and cut out the image, and I popped it up with some of Jody's Dimensional Boosters.  


Look at these roses -- they were made with the NEW Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses die and some My Favorite Felt. Aren't they SO sweet?


My second sample features Ladybug. I paired her with some papers from the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker 8x8 pad.


I colored with Copics and applied some Stickles to the wings. I placed a Prima black swirl behind the image panel, and I used two Die-namics: Perfect Bracket Edge and Flower Border.


 I finished the inside of the card, placing the sentiment there as well.
