Today I'm going to be sharing projects using the awesome new Triple Scoop set - Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents. This set could be yours FREE when you spend $60 in the MFT store!
I was so pleased to see this set. Both my parents and parents in law became grandparents for the first time when our Jackson was born, so I know I'll be using this one a lot!
First up is a girly set, perfect for any Grandma!
I created this card using papers from the Miss Nelly pack by Kaisercraft. I've used some of my favourite new Die-namics, the gorgeous Layered Rose and one of the Triple Scallop Borders.
To make the flower extra fluffy, I rolled the flowers in my hands to break up the fibers in the cardstock, then carefully seperated each petal. Start with a nice thick cardstock when you do this and go slow! I love that the Layered Rose cuts so many pieces all at once!
Inside my card I used the Triple Scallop Border again, and used the Sweet Stack Labels for my sentiment.
For the bookmark, I used the Bookmark Duo Die-namics and added my sentiment on a Fishtail Flag STAX. I topped my bookmark with another fluffy rose!
For my next card, I wanted to use Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents to make a card fit for any grandfather!
I created a border with the Hexagon Die-namics. I've used the Fishtail Flags again (I love these dies!) for my sentiment.
I anchored the flag with another Hexagon, and embellished with a button and a hammer from the Tool Charms Die-namics. I cut it twice and layered the pieces together for a multi-coloured hammer.
Inside I've used the new Double Dot Border - love this for guy cards!
I also added a screwdriver from the Tool Charms set.
For my last card today, I couldn't resist inking up the new Mouse in the House It's Your Birthday set.
The papers on this card are also Kaisercraft. I used the new Lead the Way Die-namics to stamp my sentiment on. I've stamped the image on a Rounded Banner STAX layer.
Isn't she just the sweetest? My colouring still needs a LOT of work, but I had fun colouring this in!
Inside this card I've used the Double Dot Border and Sweet Stack Labels again. I love using Die-namics to cover up the raw edges of patterened paper, it gives such a finished look to your project!
Whew - that's it from me today! Be sure to visit all the MFT designers and leave comments for your chance at that $50!
Here are all the wonderful MFT products I've used today - all available now!
