***I have two posts today, if you are looking for my Once Upon A Sketch Challenge post, please click HERE ~ Thanks :)***


Hi there! Welcome to Day 2 of 7 of the MFT August Teaser Time! Hope you are enjoying the DT samples thus far! Today we are showcasing the following sets: Inspired by the Front Porch - Fall and Mouse in the House - It's Your Birthday.

I have two cards to share today. First up is a card which features the beautiful rocking chair image from the Inspired by the Front Porch stamp set. LOTS of layers on this one! I stamped the image, cut using an oval die from the Die-namics Oval STAX Set 1, layered on top of a Die-namics OVAL Decorative Doily die cut then layered on a label cut using a Designer Labels 4 STAX die cut.

I made a Rose using the Die-namics Layered Rose dies and to add a little texture, I used the Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish die to cut a piece of corrugated cardboard.
I finished off the inside with a sentiment from Inspired by the Front Porch stamp set.
My second card features the cute mouse from the Mouse in the House - It's Your Birthday set. I paper pieced her shirt and the balloon and colored the rest of the stamped images with an assortment of Copic markers. The fun longer arrow from Die-namics Lead the Way seemed to be the perfect fit for the sentiment.
Shown below is a close up of the layered Rose blossom that was made using the Die-namics Layered Rose dies. For a different look, I stitched a MFT Razzle Berry button in the center of this rose and left it flatter than the one shown above.
The inside of this card features a few sentiments from Mouse in the House - It's Your Birthday set along with a variety of die cuts. LOVE the fun new Die-namics Wavy Edge die ~ used to cut the decorative bottom borders!
Shown below are the dies included in the August release that I used on my cards today:
