MFT New Product Tour – I Salute You

Welcome to the My Favorite Things June New Product Tour!  You’ve been teased all week long and finally, all of the new stamps and Die-namics are available!  But before you shop, I hope you’ll take one final look at all the new products.  You can find a list of direct links to all designer posts HERE on Kim’s blog.

Be sure to leave comments as you look because the New Product Tour blog candy prize is now a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique! I think that’s rather exciting! 🙂

Today I’ve used our SUPER cute new Soldier Girl from the Pure Innocence line along with Fishtail Flags STAX and new Notched Border Die-namics.

After stamping my image onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copics, then sponged and distressed the edges to go along with the distressed look of the patterned paper.  The Fishtail Flags are stitched in place at the top and left to hang loosely at the bottom for added dimension.

Along the bottom, I placed a strip of Notched Border Die-namics.  Once the front panel was fully assembled, I adhered it to my card front using foam tape.  Doing so helps the border die to stand out more prominently and adds overall dimension to the card.

On the inside, I stamped a silhouette of Soldier Girl and added a second sentiment from the set.  (I love her…she’s so cute!)

While I had all of my favorite new papers and stamps out, I decided to create a second card, this time pairing Soldier Girl with her counterpart, Soldier Boy.  (Layout is sketch from this month’s Guest Designer contest.)

Aren’t they sweet together?

I used a tab from MFT’s Mini Tabs Foursome for my sentiment, layering a navy die-cut of the tab beneath to help it stand out better against the patterns.

In the lower left corner, I placed a die-cut star from new Star STAX, adhering to the card using a button and string.

I stamped my sentiment on the inside and adhered a second star.

All of our new products are available right now, right HERE in the MFT Boutique.  Please refer back to Kim’s blog for direct links to more samples using this month’s releases.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great evening!
