MFT April Hop and Shop

You've seen the amazing MFT April previews and now it's time to Hop and Shop! If you got here from Julie's blog, you're in the right place. If you just happened upon the hop, you should really double back to the MFT blog 'cause that's where all the goodness starts :)

Tonight I get to show you Inspired By Spring. A gorgeous set with so many possibilities. It - and all the other fabulous sets and Die-namics dies that you've seen previewed over the last few days are available RIGHT NOW!!

I stamped the bird's nest image on a Cream Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I did the same with the sweet little bird, cut him out, and popped him up on the nest. It's hard to tell from this picture, but I made a little pocked from some patterned paper into which I tucked the sentiment panel--which was cut out with the new Four Point Frame Die-namics die.



You can see that I used the new Open Scallop Doily Die-namics die for the doily that's peeking out from under the bird nest panel, then I tied some hand dyed seam binding around and topped it off with a flower using the new Pretty Posies Die-namics dies.

I used a couple of the same dies for the inside, along with another sentiment from the set.






And here are the Copic markers I used.


Thanks SO much for stopping by! Now you MUST hop on over to see what the oh-so-talented Arlene has for you. I've got reason to believe you'll be WOWed. Oh, and remember there's blog candy hidden on one of the design team members' blogs. For the best chance of winning it, you might want to comment on all of the blogs. Just sayin'...
