MFT Blog Hop And Shop

Well, aren't ya'll just loving all the new stuff from My Favorite Things? Welcome to the MFT Blog Hop and Shop! You should have roamed over here from Lisa's blog, but if you just happened pop in, you might want to see all the MFT goodness by starting over on Kim's blog. There's so much new stuff, you'd be remiss to not check it all out! The MFT DT rocks!!

I have another card to show ya'll tonight. I promise some day I'll do something 3D again! I hope ya'll aren't getting bored with me! Anyway, I used the new set, Fred Bear Hits the Beach and one of the newest Die-namics dies, the Jumbo Open Scallop. AND, this card would not have been complete with the little sunny-sun-sun I made using the Sunshine Die-namics, too! (A little tip--I'm always needing a 7/8ths inch circle...this die has it!)

Ok, the next stop on this hop is FRANCES! I know she's going to rock your socks, too, so tell her I said Hi!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: When you just want a little bit of ribbon accent rather than a bow or ribbon all the way across the card, try making one of these embellishments and just glue it on. I punched a circle from the orange cardstock and poked 2 holes in it, resembling the button. Then just run twine up from the bottom through the two holes, making sure to include the scrap of ribbon underneath the "button stack" so that it gets tied on the bottom. Tie a knot or bow and trim the end of the twine and ribbon to your liking. Hot Glue is your friend when you are ready to adhere it to your project. Do we need a tutorial?
