Courage...MFT February Teasers Day 3 54

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, January 30, 2013 @ 10:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Back today with samples for Day 3 of the MFT February Teasers! Today I have a few projects featuring Clearly Sentimental Western Sentiments and Inspired by the Wild Wild West. 

First up is a layout I made featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taking while she was at a riding lesson. Living here in the Southwest and having a horse loving girl in the house, I had lots of fun making this project as both Clearly Sentimental Western Sentiments and Inspired by the Wild Wild West stamp sets work so well with Meri's horse riding photos.
Here are a few details:  I stamped one of the many sentiments from Clearly Sentimental Western Sentiments on a die cut label made using Die-namics Framed Greetings
I embellished the layout with many home made die cut flowers including the new Die-namics Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose and a flourish made using Die-namics Large Leaf Filled Flourish.
I stamped the fancy cowboy boots image from Inspired by the Wild Wild West on a die cut tag that was made using Die-namics Tag You're It die, added one of the many sentiments from Inspired by the Wild Wild West then finished it with a die cut star made using Die-namics Stacking Stars and a Nightshift Blue button.
Not only are these stamp sets awesome for creating layouts but cards as well! I stamped the MUCH OBLIGED sentiment from Clearly Sentimental Western Sentiments on a die cut tag made using a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX die.
I added a fun die cut layered embellishment made using the following Die-namics: Die-namics Stars STAX, Die-namics Mini Doily Circles and a heart from Die-namics LJD Rustic Hearts.
Shown below are the Die-namics included in the February release that I used to create my projects today:

Many thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for Day 4!
Be Sweet ;)

happy Spring...MFT February Teasers Day 2 54

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, January 29, 2013 @ 10:00 PM | , , , , , ,

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the MFT February Teasers! Today I have a few projects to share featuring the fun and versatile LLD Journal It - Library Card and LLD Document It - Right This Way stamp sets.

To make this card, I stamped the Library Card image on a die cut made using LLD Insert It - 3 x 4 Insert which I then tucked in a fun die cut envelope that was made using Die-namics Insert It - 3 x 4 Pocket.
I embellished the pocket with two darling stamped / die cut birds and a stamped / die cut flower that were stamped using TWO brand new MFT inks: Pink Lemonade and Gumdrop Green along with already favorites. All made using a combination of stamps and dies from LJD Embellished Eggs and Die-namics Easter Elements.
I also made a page in my art journal featuring many fun stamped images from LLD Document It - Right This Way, LJD Embellished Eggs and LJD Homespun Hearts as well as a wide variety of Die-namics. ALL the fun arrow stamped images are from LLD Document It - Right This Way (which contains MANY more)!
I stamped the YOU'LL FIND ME HERE sentiment from LLD Document It - Right This Way on a die cut piece that was made using Die-namics LLD Accent It - Labels and Tags.
Close up you can see more stamped arrows along with the embellished die cut house featuring a sweet heart stamped / die cut heart made using a combination of LJD Homespun Hearts and Die-namics LJD Rustic Hearts. The cute little bird and flowers were made using a combination of images from LJD Embellished Eggs and Die-namics LJD Easter Elements.
Shown below are the Die-namics included in the February release that I used to create my card:

Hi there! Welcome to Day 1 of the February MFT Teasers! I think you will find plenty of products included in this release to add to your shopping list :) Today I have an Easter themed set which includes a little treat basket and a card both made using LJD Embellished Eggs and LJD Spring Backgrounds.
To create the card, I stamped one of the sweet images from LJD Spring Backgrounds using MFT Grape Jelly ink on a die cut tag that was cut using Die-namics Tag, You're It die. 
I stamped one of the cute egg images from LJD Embellished Eggs using MFT Sno Cone ink on a die cut egg that was cut using the egg die from Die-namics Easter Elements then topped off the egg with a sweet stamped and die cut flower that was made using LJD Embellished Eggs along with Die-namics Easter Elements. 
I completed the inside with one of the many sentiments from LJD Embellished Eggs along with another stamped / die cut egg / flower combo.
The little treat basket was made using a combination of Die-namics Woven Basket along with Die-namics Trapezoid Treat Box. Makes for a perfect token of appreciation, gratitude,  affection, etc... for anyone near and dear ;)
Shown below are the Die-namics included in the February release that I used to create with today:
