Gardeners Know the Best Dirt - MFT Teaser, Day Three

It's Pure Innocence teaser day so it must be Monday! Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day to my US readers! MFT has three new Pure Innocence sets for you this month. I know, I know! They just keep coming, don't they ;-) I'm showing you Pure Innocence Mud Buddies and if you'll hit Kim's blog at 11:00am EDT today, she'll have a list of the other designers posting teasers today and I'm sure you'll see more of this set plus Pure Innocence Lollypop Girl and Pure Innocence A Cart Full of Friends.

Anyone who knows me knows I love to garden so I just had to do this one for my teaser today. Just look at her in her overalls and her Wellies!!! OMGosh--how stinkin' cute is she?! I thought a card holding a package of seeds would be a cute thing to do, but I wanted something a little different with this image. So, I made up a pot shaped card. I drew it free-hand so I don't have a template and I didn't take pictures since I was making it up as I went along. But I'll tell you its a "U" shaped card, not a "V" shaped one. I made two score marks at the top, 1/8" apart, so there would be room inside for the seed package. Hope all that made some sense, LOL. If not, shoot me an email and I'll try to explain it better. I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut her out and popped her up on a little scene with some digi paper from the Sheltering Tree pack and some torn Fossil card stock (did I mention that I love this cardstock!?). Cut that out with a Nestabilities die and the rest was embellishing. I used little flat backed pearls for the seeds. Buttons are from MFT's Summer collection (blue button) and Chocolate Kiss collection (brown buttons). Before I started adding stuff to the base card, I did some shading for the pot rim with Copic markers and sponged on some green distress ink to simulate moss. It shows up better in real life, but I think it could stand to be darker.

Here's the inside--a simple pocket for the seed from patterned paper and a fun sentiment, also from the set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to stop by Kim's blog this morning for the list, and the Guest Designer Challenge deets are over at the Member Company Forum on SCS. The release party is also at SCS, Wednesday evening from 8:00-10:00pm EDT with the Shop and Hop starting at 10:00 at Kim's blog. The Guest Designer Contest winner will be announced at the party, so get your entry in for a chance to win all of the July release stamps and to join the DT for the July release!

Today is also my two-year blogaversary! I can't believe how the time has flown!! I'll be offering up some blog candy soon as a celebration, so keep an eye out for it!

I'll be back tomorrow with another teaser :)
