A Family is a Gift

All the new products you've seen over the past 7 days are available NOW in the MFT Boutique!

Welcome to the MFT New Product Tour!  New Product Tour = "Blog Hop" without the hopping.  LOL  You'll find a complete list of all the new products and the designers who made inspiring samples with them on the MFT blog.  Click through at your leisure and be taken on a tour of all that is NEW at MFT.

I used Clearly Sentimental about Family for my card tonight.  There is so much to love about this set, but I especially appreciate being able to stamp the word "family" in the sentiment in a different color without any of the fuss of "selective inking".

The larger portion of the sentiment was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink, and then clear embossed.  I stamped the word "family" in with green chalk ink.  I drew a light pencil-line just inside the edge of the oval and then stitched along it with my machine one stitch at a time using the wheel on the the side of the machine.  NOT the easiest thing to do, but SO worth the effort.  I used the previously released Layered Label Die-namics die set.  The sentiment layer was stitched on to the back layer.

I decided to back the entire Layered Label with the Oval Decorative Doily.  I love the detail and touch of class that it adds, and they fit together very nicely.  SCORE!  LOL  You can see I tucked some bling behind the sentiment layer.  

I added the new Postage Stamp Border Die-namics along the bottom of the card to pull in a little more of the Kiwi Kiss card stock that I used on the Oval Decorative Doily.

The patterned paper I used is from Pink Paislee, by the way.  It is actually Halloween themed, but I LOVED the bright green patterns!

Thanks for joining me for this month's New Product Tour.
 There are a couple on-going specials you can take advantage of tonight (and ANY time)!

I also wanted to mention that in honor of the fight against cancer, MFT has pledged a $1500 donation to MD Anderson.  There is a thread on splitcoaststampers that explains what ELSE MFT is doing and I hope you'll check that out HERE.
