MFT VIP New Product Tour — You’re Swell

It’s time for My Favorite Things‘ VIP!  This month’s kit is titled Surf’s Up. So cute!   :)

For $33.90, you can purchase Pure Innocence Surf Chick and Surfer Dude stamp sets, Surf’s Up Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set – will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE), Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics and Sentiment Strips Die-namics. You can find the new collection HERE (while supplies last).

I used Surfer Dude along with one of his coordinating sentiments, new Jumbo Squiggle Border and Sentiment Strips Die-namics, along with Circle STAX and Catch a Wave Die-namics.

I stamped my Surfer Dude onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.  I cut him out and placed him beneath the waves and in front of the “setting sun.”  (There’s a foam booster beneath his head to help balance the dimension at the bottom of the card.)

On the inside, I stamped a silhouette of the little guy along with another sentiment from the set.

Using just one die-cut Sentiment Strip, here’s how I very quickly and easily created the two flags for the sentiment:

Die-cut cardstock.  (I colored my white Sentiment Strip with an E41 Copic to match the papers I used.)

Stamp “You’re” on the right side.

Flip the strip and stamp “Swell” on the opposite end.

Cut the strip in half.

And you have your two flags. 🙂  Super quick.  Super easy.
