Follow Your Heart... 61

Hi there and welcome to Day 3 of the May MFT Teasers! I hope you are enjoying all the samples provided by the MFT DT thus far! Today I have several cards to share featuring a combination of MFT Life's Direction and Distressed Background Basics stamp sets. The new products will be available on Tuesday, May 7th at 10 PM in the MFT Boutique.

To begin, I first created the colorful papers used on all three cards using the Chicken Wire Stencil and the Graduated Dots Stencil, various paints and the Gelli Arts Printing Plate.

On the first card, I stamped one of the beautiful sentiments from MFT Life's Direction on a die cut made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon DIE ONLY. Using the Die-namics Hearts a Plenty, I cut a trio of Kraft cardstock hearts then added texture by sending them through my paper crimper and topped one off with Sno Cone button.                                                                                                                                                                                 
For additional interest, I randomly stamped and heat embossed the checkerboard stamp from Distressed Background Basics. 
My next card, features more of my homemade artsy papers and more fun stamps from Life's Direction. I stamped the weathervane using MFT Berrylicious ink on a die cut made using Die-namics LLD Insert It - 3x4 Notepad die along with a sentiment from Life's Direction.
On this card, I randomly stamped and heat embossed the chickenwire stamp from Distressed Background Basics. 
Last but not least, is another card featuring yet another beautiful sentiment from Life's Direction which I layered on a die cut label made using Die-namics Heirloom Label.
On this card, I randomly stamped and heat embossed the polkadot stamp from Distressed Background Basics. 
Thanks so much for visiting today ~ I hope you enjoyed my trio of cards!
Please be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see all the beautiful projects that the rest of the team has created. You'll also read about some HUGE prizes being given away this week during Teaser Time that you won't want to miss!
I'll be back tomorrow with more samples to share.

Be Sweet ;)
