Today is full of excitement with the final day of MFT Teaser Time happening this morning, the Blog Hop & Shop tonight at 10 PM EST (start HERE at Kim's blog), The release party from 8-10 PM EST, and all culminating in the release of all the new products we have been showing you at 10 PM EST.
We are previewing the last of the new sets today: Who's That Harvest Girl, Clearly Sentimental about Harvest, and Garden Goodness.
I used Who's That Harvest Girl for my card today. I was SUPER inspired by the adorable set, and all the fun things you can add to her basket: apples, peaches, tomatoes, and strawberries. As you know, the Strawberries and Strawberry Carton template was already released. Tonight, there is another "fruity" template being released that was designed by ME. It is the Designer Basket & Apples Template! I'll tell you more about it tonight during the blog hop, but how about just a little peek at what you can do with the template?
First up, here is my card. I used Who's That Harvest Girl and stamped the tomatoes in the basket. The image was colored and then I added some Diamond Glaze over the tomatoes and let it dry overnight. You know tomatoes from the garden are nice and shiny! (YUM)
I used the Open Scallop Die-namics die, as well as an A2 note card in Espresso.
The more I used this set, the more fun I thought it would be to have gifty 3D things to pair with the cards! After all, I do not have a green thumb and won't be harvesting any REAL fruit or vegetables from my back yard! LOL How about some treat-filled paper ones instead?
The apple template doubles as a tomato, peach, or any other round(ish) fruit or vegetable you can think of. Just customize the top and you're good to go. I cut the apple template on red card stock using my Cricut and Make the Cut software. There is also an inner piece, that forms a treat cup. You can put some candy or other small treats in the cup before finishing your fruit.
For my tomatoes, I used the Sunshine Die-namics die, wooden buttons from the Earth Girl Button Collection, and some thin brown ribbon I had for the "stems". These come together SO quickly and are SO much fun. In fact, my daughter Baliey has been harvesting quite the collection of fruit in her stamping space, lately. LOL There is also a designer basket as part of this template, which I will show you tonight during the hop. :)
Here is a side-view of the tomato. You can see the treat cup peeking through the side.
