It is finally time for the My Favorite Things August release! All the new products are now available in the MFT Boutique, but first I hope you’ll take our New Product Tour. You never know…you might see something you just can’t live without. 😉
One of the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics was used for the “smile” tab.
I used a second sentiment on the inside. This was not the sentiment I *wanted* to use, however. One of my hardfast rules of using acrylic stamps is to N-E-V-E-R remove a stamp from the plastic sheet without immediately adhering it to a clear block. (Do you know where this is going?) I pulled the sentiment I wanted to use, set it on my paper, did …something…I don’t know what. And when I came back to stamp my sentiment, it was gone. Nowhere to be found. It’s stuck to something…somewhere. I was so mad at myself. I wanted to use “You’re picture perfect” but now can’t…until I order a second set. Grrr… (Still cute though.)
Here’s a close-up of our pretty Layered Rose. I placed a red die-cut on the bottom of the stack, slightly off center, to help the flower stand out from the same pattern behind. (It’s a nifty little trick I often use.)
On the inside, I stamped the little head, minus the frame, along with a sentiment from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments.
Don’t forget to head on over to the MFT blog for direct links to more samples using this month’s stamp and Die-namics sets!
