Penny for your thoughts…MFT VIP New Product Tour

Hi everyone.  In what seems to be warp speed, it’s time once again for My Favorite Things‘ VIP.  We have another couple of really cute Pure Innocence sets for you!  This month’s kit is titled Simple Pleasures.

For $33.95 you can purchase Pure Innocence Picture Perfect and Piggy Bank stamp sets, Simple Pleasures Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set – will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE) and Lead the Way Die-namics, a fun set of various arrows.  You can find the new collection HERE (while supplies last).

Today I’ve used Piggy Bank, the Simple Pleasures Sentiments mini (LOVE this set), Lead the Way and Fishtail Flags Die-namics.

I used MFT’s heavyweight kraft cardstock to die-cut the arrow.  I didn’t have brads to match so instead I punched six circles using a 1/4″ punch, layering two to create each “brad.”  (Base cardstock is Kraft as well.)

I stamped my girl onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copics.  After piecing the shirt, I added a bit of shadow using a gray marker.

The arrow is raised on foam tape, and I layered a second Fishtail Flag behind the sentiment flag for a bit of definition on the fishtail end.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments and stamped the girl peeking up from the bottom.

Be sure to check Kim’s blog for direct links to more samples using these cute new sets and dies!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!
