MFT March New Product Tour – Party Time Four Ways

Hi everyone, and welcome to the My Favorite Things March New Product Tour. You can find direct links to design team samples HERE on the MFT Blog. Don’t forget to leave comments as you look!  One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique!    🙂

Tonight my focus is on the new Doodle Garden set, Party Time.   On each of my four cards, I used a card base of Kraft heavyweight cardstock along with X-Press It Blending Card, Copics and my favorite new patterned paper, American Crafts Dear Lizzy “Lucky Charm.”

On my first card, I combined Party Time with new Blueprints 1 Die-namics.

I love how the stitched lines emboss on the button and vertical strip.

On the inside, I used Black Licorice ink to stamp the sentiment and silhouette.

On my next card, I combined Party Time with Party Banner.

I poked holes to tie Hemp Cord at the ends of the banner and paper-pieced the girl’s jumper.

On the inside, I drew a border using a Copic multi-liner and stamped a second sentiment in Black Licorice ink.

Moving on with the redhead…  🙂

I die-cut a couple of tabs from Blueprints 1 and hung them using Hemp Cord.  Along the bottom, I die-cut the edge of the patterned paper using Wavy Edge Die-namics.

I finished the inside quickly and easily.

Lastly, I used a few Fishtail Flags, tied off with Hemp Cord, to add balance to the white panel.

The little gift was paper-pieced from a scrap of striped paper.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment and added a couple more flags.

All of the new products are now available in the MFT Boutique right HERE!  🙂 Be sure to check out the MFT blog for direct links to more samples using this month’s stamp and Die-namics sets!
