If you just happened to stop by my blog today, you might want to start off on Kim's blog so you don't miss out on any information or any of the awesome creations the MFT design team has prepared to share with you tonight. :-)

I had so much fun creating this "Thank You" card set using MFT's new Pure Innocence: Rose stamp set. She is just so adorable and I love, love, love roses!


I used papers from Pooch & Sweetheart and MFT Hot Fudge cardstock. I colored up PI girl using my Copic markers and At You Glitter Spica pens, paper pieced her dress and layered her onto a Dainty Doily. I created a rose using MFT's Rolled Rose Die-namics, added leaves using the Upsy Daisy Die-namics and stamped the sentiment onto banners from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics. The band around the clear card box was created using designer paper and the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics.

Here are detailed pics and close-ups....




Here's a detailed look at the "Thank You" cards...



I kept the "Thank You" cards simple. Each card is A2 in size. I used several Die-namics on these cards: Scallop Ribbon Border, the scallop circle from the First Award Ribbon set, the smaller of the two doilies from the Daily Doily Duo set, and the circle from the Sweet Stack set. The array of "Thank You" sentiments come from one MFT stamp set called Thanks a Bunch. I love, love, love this stamp set, because the combination of "Thank You" sentiments are ENDless! I also used some flourishes (stamped in pink) from the new Pretty Pocket stamp set, featured in MFT teaser day 2.) The brown recycled "paperbag" envelopes are from a local paper supply store, love these!


Now I'd like to point you over to the creative and fun MICHELE. I'm sure she has something spectacular to share with you that will leave you Oooooh-ing and Awww-ing!

... and don't forget to stop by the MFT Boutique for a little bit of shopping when you're done hopping! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

hugs! ♡












Here are the MFT Die-namics I used on this project:
