MFTeasers | Day 3


Welcome to the third day of Teasers for My Favorite Things!  This week is full of inspiration for you AND we have some fun prizes for you too, so be sure to hop on over to the MFT Blog to see how you can win some MFT goodies!

All of these new products will be available for purchase on September 3rd @ 10 PM Eastern.

Tonight, the team is showcasing LLD Journal It - Take Note and Sunny Day Doodles - Celebrate Life.


I wanted to have some fun with this new Sunny Day Doodles - Celebrate Life set and so I colored a single sentiment with three different colors.  I started by inking up just the bottom of the stamp with Blu Raspberry Ink and then stamped it on some Smooth White Card Stock (which is cut out with the LLD Insert It - 3x4 Notepad Die-namics).  Since the top and middle segments of the sentiment are touching each other, I stamped the sentiment again in Limeade Ink and Electric Red Ink while using the selective inking technique.

I used LLD Journal It - Take Note to create the notebook paper and then popped up an Electric Red Button on the edge of the paper. 


The inside of the card mimics the front where I split up a sentiment and used different colors to make it pop.   I also stamped my background in Berrylicious Ink with the new LJD Textile Backgrounds stamp set.


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!

Wow Karen, I have a thing or two to learn from you. I have no idea how to do this technique! I love the way it keeps the focus on the words and it's so simple and pretty. Thank you so much for showing off this stamp set - you are awesome!!! suzy

Vicki said...

How simple an idea is that?! Selective inking rocks and really does draw your eye to the words rather than the other elements.

Tammy H said...

Really like all the special detail on this card and the way to changed the direction of the sentiment from it's original design.

Pam W Merwin said...

Love the softness of your background and the different colors you used with the sentiment!
