Grand Greetings...MFT Teasers Day 5


Hello!!!   The August release at My Favorite Things is fast approaching.   You will be able to purchase all the new goodies this coming Tuesday night, August 6th, at 10 PM EST.   Today is the fifth day of  Teaser Time posts.  Be sure to check the MFT blog for all the product reveals, details on how to enter to win a fantastic prize, and links to the designers sharing projects today!

I have two cards to share today both using the fantastic new Grand Greetings set from Lisa Johnson Designs.  Here is the first one.


I started by stamping the text background from the new Collage Backgrounds from Mona Pendleton Designs on a Smooth White panel.  I cut a Steel Grey panel using the Pierced Square STAX Die-namics and stamped a sunflower from Splendid Sunflower in yellow pigment ink.  I used my heat gun to be sure that was totally dry before heat embossing a sentiment from Grand Greetings.  On the Banana Split panel, I used the new Triangle Screen Die-namics.  Instead of using it to cut the card stock, I used it as an impression plate.  I removed the wafer thin die adapter from my Vagabond sandwich and placed an embossing pad over the card stock on the Triangle Screen Die-namics.  It worked great!  Here is a look from a different angle.


Here are direct links to the MFT products I used for the card and treat bag (New product links will be active on August 6th at 10 pm EST.).



Here is my next card using Grand Greetings and the Blueprints 6 Die-namics.



For this card I also used Splendid Sunflower to stamp the background paper.  I modified one of the Blueprints 6 layouts just a bit to accommodate the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment in the brand new Sweet Tooth pigment ink, which is being released this month!!!  I am so excited that MFT will now have Sweet Tooth and Whip Cream pigment inks!!!!  I also used one of the stamps from Plaid Background Builder to stamp the stripes along the Hot Fudge card stock at the bottom.
