Greatest Hits: Flopsey

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by. Today, the MFT design team is celebrating Flopsey's Greatest Hits! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog for a full list of participants (11 AM EST).

There is a special promotion tied in to today's group post.  Use the code FLOPSEY for $3.00 off any Flopsey set! This code will be valid Thursday June 10 and Friday June 11th.

I chose Flopsey's Flowers. This is one of my all-time favorite Flopsey sets. I had so much fun incorporating the Die-namics dies into this card!

I die-cut the Fresh Cut Grass die with felt from the Outdoor Essentials My Favorite Felt Collection.  I LOVE the way it looks in real life.  SO cool.  Felt + Grass Die = SO cool

Look at my white cloud.  Doesn't it look like I cut it out of white grosgrain ribbon?  I didn't!  It's paper!  EEEEEEK!  I used MFT's new Ribbon RE:Creations Grosgrain Texture Board after I die cut the cloud out of white card stock.  Isn't that SO neat?  It looks and feels like ribbon. 

To create depth in my scene, I added clouds in varying heights.  For the background, I die-cut some clouds out of Eclipse masking paper and then stuck them down on my card panel and airbrushed a blue background using my Copic markers.  Then, I cut out clouds using white card stock, embossing them using the Grosgrain Texture Board, and then popped them up.  I also added a sun, using the new Sunshine die and then added a rolled flower to the center of it.  I was inspired by Julie's card HERE.

Here is a peek inside.  I again used the Sunshine, Fresh Cut Grass and Cloud Die-namics dies.


As if I didn't have enough fun with Flopsey, I decided to make another card.  :)  This one uses the same Flopsey's Flowers set.  I used it to make an I'm sorry card.  I didn't make it for any reason in particular, but I'll keep it close by, just in case... LOL 

My super-sweet friend, Michele, recently made THIS card using a fun felt flower.  I LOVED it so much that I became obsessed with finding some of my own.  She's a trend-setter like that.  I can't tell you HOW much money she has caused me to spend.  LOL  Thanks, Michele.  :)  I added a fun pink button and some black floss to the center of the flower to tie it in with my color combo. 

Here is a peek at my pink ribbon.  JUST KIDDING it's PAPER!  Isn't that so cool?  I used the new Jumbo Ric Rac Die-namics die and the Ribbon RE:Creations Grosgrain Texture Board to create it. 

A peek inside:

Thanks for stopping by!  Sorry this is so wordy.  LOL  I was just SO excited about using all my new toys!
