MFTeasers Day One!

Hi there and welcome to the first day of Teasers from My Favorite Things!  We have such an exciting  release for you this week, including a brand new Die-namics concept called Blueprints and a brand new color in our Replenishments line, Electric Red!

Today we are introducing a beautiful new set from Lisa Johnson Designs called Pretty Poppies, along with the coordinating Poppies and Leaves Die-namics, also from Lisa Johnson Designs.

Here is some information about a new Die-namics concept called Blueprints 1:


Introducing Blueprints – The Foundation for Your Creativity
Whether you have limited time, or simply need a creative jumpstart; Blueprints is your answer.  A design plan and building blocks in one revolutionary product.  Follow the provided sketches, or mix and match the elements provided to become your own architect.  Leave the heavy lifting to us.


The sketch comes from the provided sketches for Blueprints 1!  I ADORE this new Die-namics set.  I simply followed one of the provided sketches for Blueprints 1 and had my card done in record time!  I cannot say enough about this concept.  It's brilliant!  A card that would normally take me about 2+ hours to create, took me 35 minutes from start to finish!  So if you're sketch challenged or are simply lacking some creative mojo, then Blueprints 1 is for you!

The card base is Sweet Tooth.  I stamped the Gumdrop Green layer with the text stamp from Pretty Poppies in green ink.  I did the same with the orange layer.  I love that text background stamp.  I cut several of the Poppy heads using Lisa's new Poppies and Leaves Die-namics and stamped them with the coordinating poppy from Pretty Poppies.  I popped it up on foam tape for dimension over the stem and leaves.  I finished the card with a little machine stitching and some Hemp Cord.


Here is a shot of the inside:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was having so much fun with Pretty Poppies and Blueprints 1 that I decided to make a clean and simple card while I had everything out on my desk.  This card took me about 10 minutes.  Another record for me :)

I stamped the text background in orange ink and layered over it a white scallop that was cut using the Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I stamped the stem, leaves and sentiment in green ink and added some dimension with the die-cut poppy head using foam tape.  


Here are the new products I used on my cards:
