Hello - MFT March Teasers, Day One

teaserday1_2013mar5 
It's that wonderful time—time for MFT teasers!! SO many fabulous things for you this month and we can’t wait to show them to you. Today we’re previewing a Lisa Johnson set, LJD Pretty Poppies. And I have to tell you, I’m having a hard time putting these down! I love them second only to Lisa’s leaves set from the fall, and that, my friends, is saying a lot :) So, I have a card for you but first, here are a few things you need to know:

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

Now, about my card. I have a graphic of the set below and you’ll see something really exciting, at least it was to me—a script background stamp! Be still my heart! More about that in a minute.

First of all, I plotted where I wanted my poppies and stamped them with Wild Cherry ink. Then I added in the stems, the leaves, and the buds with a new ink being released this month, Gumdrop Green, and colored the centers with Copic markers. I die cut one (YES! there are matching dies!!) with the companion Die-namics Poppies and Leaves and stamped and colored it.THEN, I stamped the script image with brown ink all over the panel. I simply inked it up once, stamped fully inked at the bottom and continued to move my stamp up the card, effectively inking off until there was no ink left. Then I matted it with Black Licorice card stock on a Kraft card stock base, stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice ink, and popped up the die-cut poppy on foam. I really love how this turned out.

Here’s how I did the INSIDE of the card:
