Bear Hugs - Pep Rally!

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.

But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!

Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.

We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.

And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.

I have two cards for you today - one with lots of layers, and one more masculine and CAS!

For my first card I've used the Pure Innocence Bear Hugs set to create a card for someone who is under the weather. I've sponged all the layers. I used the new Winter Rose Die-namics to create an off white flower from felt, I love the soft look of this flower! 

I tried to keep the fur of the bear mottled looking when colouring my image with copics. Have you seen all the amazing colouring this week by my MFT teammates? They put a beginner like me to shame! So inspiring :-)

Inside my card I've used the Mini Double Dot border again and a couple of sentiments from the set. If you look closely you'll see the PI girl stamped again too!

For my second card I've made a masculine Valentine with a Rock and Roll feel!

I stamped the Lovey Dovey Sentiment in Wild Cherry ink and layered it over a Sentimental Flourish Die-namic. The card front is finished with three lines of piercing. 

I covered the flourish in White Enamel paint - adding a little somethin' somethin' to my Die-namics is one of my fave things to do lately!

Inside my card I've used the InstaFrame and stamped my sentiment directly on the frame. A Wild Cherry felt heart cut with Hearts a Plenty finishes off my simple card.

Here are all the supplies for my cards today. New MFT products will be available tomorrow!
