MFT Teasers Day 3 - Clearly Sentimental




Hello!! Welcome to the third day of teasers for the My Favorite Things May release. Today the design team is featuring Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries (the current Triple Scoop set which will be available for regular purchase beginning on Tuesday) and Clearly Sentimental about Art, the newest Triple Scoop set available for May.  Clearly Sentimental about Art will be available beginning May 1st at 10 pm EST for FREE with a $60 purchase!!  How fantastic is that? :)  I have a double feature for you today - a card for each set :)  Here is my card showcasing a fun sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries.


Hee, Hee!  Love this sentiment!!  This will be a perfect card for my hubby :)  The layout is a previous iSpy Sketch (ISSC12).  I kept this card minimally layered and fairly simple on a Kraft card base - perfect for a guy.  The flags were cut from patterned paper from On the Bright Side One using the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.  The sentiment was stamped on a Fishtail Flag, too.  Tara inspired me to be daring and extend an element off the card!!!  Because really do any of my cards ever really "fit" in an envelope anyways?  LOL.  The burlap heart was cut with the smaller of the hearts in the Layered Heart Die-namics and the denim heart (from my son's worn jeans) using the largest heart from Hearts a Plenty Die-namics.  Here is the inside with more Fishtail Flags and another denim heart.



My next card is entirely different from the first.  For this card I used Clearly Sentimental about Art and the new Artist Palette & Brush Die-namics - which is sooo cool!!

The papers are the London Market paper pad from Pink Paislee.  The layout is MFTWSC69, rotated 90°.  The sentiment is stamped on a rectangle cut using the new Rectangle STAX Die-namics.  I used both sets 1 and 2 to layer the sentiment and the large rectangle and it's black licorice mat were also cut with the Rectangle STAX Die-namics.  These sets will make perfect layering so easy!!  To finish the front, I added some black crochet trim and tied a bow with ivory satin horizontal stripe ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel.  Here is another look.


I chose some muted colors of cardstock for the paints, coating with liquid glass for a wet look.  I used lots of foam tape and Jody boosters to layer the elements of this card.  Here is the inside with another new Die-namics - Vertical Greetings II.  A second sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Art was stamped on the oval from Sweet Stack Labels Die-namics



Here are the Die-namics I used today.

Sharon-The OKI StampQueen said...

Love it!!! Too, too cute! Blessings Sharon

Tangii said...

Love the dimension on the paint! Great card!!

PaperDoll said...

In the first piece, I love the hearts cut out of fabric... it really demonstrates the versatility of the Die-namics. I have yet to use mine on anything other than paper, but it's great to know that they can be used with burlap, canvas, denim, fabric, felt, & virtually any other thin profile materials you can think of! :)

Jill Norwood said...

Gorgeous cards both! Love the way you made the paint on the palette look wet! Awesome details!

PaperDoll said...

The paint palette in the second piece just steals the show! I love how you coated the little cardstock paint splotches with liquid glass to achieve that wet look. I'm just wondering how long it takes to dry, because I'd be afraid to touch-test it... seeing it STILL looks wet!!! (:

Shelly @A Creative Space said...

The paint on your palette is such a great idea!!

Queen Mary said...

Wow Debbie! Just wow!! I love the first card for the very reasons you mentioned -- perfect for a guy - great papers, great layers. And I have never seen liquid glass look so good! It's brilliant! Thanks for sharing that idea!

Allisa said...

Love your paints, can't live without Liquid Glass!

Katie Skiff said...

Stephenie said...

I love the barn paper and fabrics. Gives so much texture! I want to touch it! The paints look so wet and real!!
