MFT April Teaser, Day Four

Happy Monday! Are you ready for another day full of MFT teasers? Today we have Inspired by Spring and Claire Keay - Hello, Sunshine. I'm showing you Inspired By Spring, but first...
  • The May Guest Designer Contest continues and ends TONIGHT at 10 PM EST. The winner will be announced at the release party. Get the deets here.
  • Teasers continue and will be daily through Tuesday, April 5th. Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts. Leaving a comment on every designer's blog post will give you the best chance of winning every day :) Check the MFT blog daily for the winners.
  • The April Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm April 5th, with the hop also starting at the MFT Blog.
And now, Inspired By Spring, the next set in the highly popular Inspired By... line. This image is timely since the cherry blossoms are in bloom right now. I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers before cutting it out and matting it.

I did some crazy stitching on the card base and added some lace and, yep, another new die cut--made with the Open Zig Zag Border Die-namics die. Sweeeeet :) Then I finished it up with a sentiment from the set and some hand dyed seam binding.

Here's the inside with another sentiment from the set and some butterflies made with the Butterflies Die-namics dies. Other MFT products I used are Fossil and Sno Cone card stock.





Here are the Copic markers I used.
