MFT Teasers - Day One!




It's the first day of May MFT Teasers!! I am so humbled and very proud to be joining the other MFT designers as their guest this month. I was very fortunate to be able to use some fabulous stamp sets and NEW dies available on May 1 at 10 pm, and am excited to be able to post my creations for you!!

And be sure to travel to Kim's blog to see the link list of MFT designer's that are posting!

Today we are starting off with the new WTG - Girl Plays Golf and I couldn't be more excited! I am that girl!!! I LOVE golf - Hubby and I bought a membership this year to our local golf club so I feel so posh lol! (yeh, that's me)


I started off by stamping the image onto a piece of X-Press it cardstock. I coloured her back arm (her right arm) and the golf clubs (and yes, I have a big pink golf club, my driver. I call her Ol' Pinky) with my copic markers. I also shaded around the image at this point.

I stamped the image again onto a piece of designer paper from the Bo Bunny Alora 6x6 paper pad. I cut out her shirt, pants and the bottom of the golf bag, and paper pieced them onto the first image.


Again I stamped the image onto a piece of X-Press it cardstock, coloured her left arm and the club heads, cut them out and adhered them to the image. I popped up the golf clubs a big for dimension.



You can see that I added some bling onto the golf glove - that is a marker that all golf gloves have. You can take that off to mark where your ball is on the green - see, isn't this fun -- you are also learning golf as we go - can't help it - I love my golf!!

See the cute little scalloped edge? That is the new Mini Scallop Edge Die-namics!! I think it is so sweet!



Inside my card is one of the great sentiments included with the Who's That Girl  - Girl Plays Golf (me) and I used the Mini Scalloped Edge Die-namic on the inside as well.








My second card ( I know - don't keel over...) uses another new image available on May 1st by Claire Keays. Her drawings are so adorable and this one is no exception. It is called You A-mews Me - how cute!



I stamped the image onto X-Press It cardstock, and coloured it with my copic markers, choosing to make the image into a little orange tabby! We used to have an orange Tabby called George (kind of a stinky thing.....) but oh so fun - boy did we used to terrorized that poor kitty.....lol! (going waaaay back here)

I die cut the image with the new Rectangle STAX Die-namics and sewed on my little die-cut sentiment.


If you look carefully under the image, you can see a little peek of another new Die-namics being released . This is called the Squiggle Border Die-namics! I love that word squiggle! squiggle. squiggle.


I used the little fish charm from the Pet Charm Die-namics and I kept the little fish bones and used them to scatter around the kitty. He looks like he has had a purr-fect day! 




The photo corners were stacked up - because I like doing that!






Here are the Die-namics that I have used. squiggle.
