MFT Teasers, Day 2

The My Favorite Things design team is back today to preview three new sets, Fred Bear Goes Camping, Emma With Her Backpack and Wyatt and His Wagon.  As I mentioned yesterday, we have teaser prizes this month so be sure to leave comments as you visit each blog.  You can find the complete list of participating DT members HERE after 11 a.m. EST.  Today there is an Emma set hidden along the way as well as a Wyatt set!  :)  Fun, right?  Two free sets!

Happy Camper


I just love Fred Bear.  He’s so cute…and fun to color.  I pulled out my Mr. Campy paper by Cosmo Cricket, a little on the “older” side, but perfect nonetheless.

The tree was die-cut using a new Die-namics Tree and Leaf Trio set (which works perfectly with our Sheltering Tree set).  If you look closely, you can see that the bark is embossed into the die-cut.  I only ran the die through my Cuttlebug once and still achieved that degree of embossing.  That’s a plus in my book!   As a little extra, I used two of the smaller leaves to create the knotted end of a “bandanna” tied around Fred’s neck.

 I also used the new Small Scallops border along the bottom of my card front.

On the inside, I lightly stamped a silhouette of the image and repeatedly stamped part of the sentiment, leaving a bit of space for a note.
