MFT Sneak Peak #1

It's almost time to get out those wallets and CC numbers - My Favorite Things is releasing 4, count them 4, new sets on August 1st!!!

I will be posting cards from each set, leading up to the big day, starting today! This adorable mini set is called Back to School. It includes the teacher, with a pointing stick in her hand (I've omitted the stick for these two cards to show some of the versatility that Kim plans for all of her sets, not excluding this one!), a blackboard, stack of books, globe, book bag, an apple, and 2 sentiments!

[Reposted: This card was published in the Aug./Sept., '07 issue of Ready, Set, Create!, pg 117.]

For the first card, I wanted the teacher to look more like a mom. I'm picturing her standing by the front door, holding the book bag, to make sure that her own star pupil doesn't leave it behind. :) I'm sure that sounds familiar to some of you! Also, I stamped the sentiment in three lines, so that it fit into the circle nicely. So nice to have clear stamps for that! No stamp-a-ma-jig! Other items used were Michael's ribbon and the SU! Slit and Circle Punches.
The second card shows the well-loved teacher that the little star pupil treated to an apple. ;) The black layer is embossed with my Traffic CB folder. I colored both cards with my Copic markers, and used one of them to "spritz" some color on this teacher image. The scallops were created with the MFT set, Setting the Stage, then I just cut around them. The bottom of the black layer is pierced below the ribbon. The ribbon is SU!, and so is the Large Oval Punch.
I chose to use the same PP for both cards, by Doodlebug. It just screamed Back to School to me, with the alphabet printed on it in primaries. The CS used was BB, Stamper's Select, Real Red, Pumpkin, Brilliant Blue, and Wasabi. Hope you like them! Check back in tomorrow for a little Home for the Holidays! :)

  14. It is highly frustrating with slow dial up, to spend 3 minutes loading a page to find everything removed.
