MFT Teasers Day 4!

Hi everyone and welcome to day 4 of MFT Teasers! So how are ya doing with your shopping list so far? And what about all those amazing projects the Design Team has shared with you this week? What an awesome, awesome release MFT has lined up yet again!

Today the designers are showcasing project using the Bon App├ętit stamp set and Contempo Cage Die-namics and stamp set.

I created my project using the new Contempo Cage Die-Namics and stamp set. Here's a peek:


Isn't the bird cage just adorable?! And the little bird with wing?! There are so many coordinating and "accenting" stamps in the set, the possibilities truly are endless!

The paper collection I used on my card is by Webster's Pages. I distressed the edges for a shabby chic feel to the card.  Here are some pics:


I cut the birdcage out in kraft cardstock, centered a Mini Rolled Rose on top of the cage and accented it with a few little white flowers from my stash. I "crinkled" my own seam binding (I use rubbing alcohol) and made a bow to adorn the top of my cage. Lined on the bottom of the cage is the Flower Border Die-Namics, accented with some Recollections pearls from my stash. I stamped the little bird from the stamp set underneath so he appears to be "in" the cage. I just LOVE the little bar he can stand on... too cute! You'll also see that I stamped some of the musical notes from the stamp set... my little bird loves to sing! :-)


Under the cage is the super fun Woodgrain fence (which by the way, is PERFECT for those Halloween projects you might be working on!)

I cut out the little bird in kraft card stock and I used one of the coordinating stamps to create the "lines" on his little wing. I used a little itty-bitty Recollections pearl for the bird's eye. The sentiment is stamped onto kraft cardstock cut out with my Mini Pennants Die-namics. I think layered them on top of the "ends" of the smaller banner from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics set.


Here's a side view of my card...


Inside the card, I layered more design paper ad Hot Fudge cardstock. I stamped the little bird in brown ink, then stamped his wing in green ink. I also included the rest of the woodgrain fence that I cut off from the front of the card (can't let those scraps go to waste, right?!) then I stamped another sentiment from the set onto the banners from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics.

what a beautiful card. I love the dies used, but the black bow is what really made me go 'wow'. I don't know why, I guess I would not have picked that strong of a color for this type of card, but it totally fits.
