MFTeasers: Day One!!

Hi there!  It's the first day of teasers from My Favorite Things!  We have another terrific release in store for you!  You'll find all of the release details on the MFT Blog.

My project for you today uses the new stamp set from Lisa Johnson Designs, Sweet Roses, it's coordinating Roses and Leaves Die-namics, and the new Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  The other stamp sets I used are Spring Backgrounds and Western Backgrounds.

I've used the following cardstock:  Kraft, Smooth White, Sweet Tooth (card base), and Hot Fudge

 I've used the following ink:  the new Orange Fizz, Hot Fudge, and Factory Green, plus Black Licorice (roses), and Kraft.

Now onto my project!

I made a A2 sized card box to hold four cards and four envelopes.  You can find the tutorial for the A2 card box here. All of the sketches I used are from the Blueprints 2 PDF that you can find over on the MFT blog.  

Here is the unopened box.  ALL of the dies used on this project, with the exception of the new Roses and Leaves Die-namics, are from the Blueprints 2 Die-namics die set.

Here is is opened....just a peek!

Here are the cards!  Can you see the peek of the stamped envelopes in the box?

Here is the first card.

And the second card.

And here's the third card.

And the final card.  Don't you love the grid die on the bottom?  I wasn't sure I would like it at first, but it's a great way to showcase a pattern!

Here is a close up.

And the inside.  I didn't have room for a sentiment on the outside, so I put it on the inside.

This set was SO FUN to make.  The Blueprints 2 Die-namics make it so easy to make a set like the one I made here.  It took me just an afternoon to pull this all together.

Here is a little info on the MFT April Release:

~All of the new stamps and Die-namics will be available on April 9th at 10 PM EST in the MFT Boutique.
~For all the release details, plus how you can win BIG prizes, please head on over to the MFT blog!

Here are the links to the products I used on today's project (new product links will work on release night)
