Hello there!! It’s time, it’s time!! MFT’s February Release is now available for purchase in the MFT Online Boutique! Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details and to see how you can have a chance to win free stuff!
Before I get started, I wanted to tell you that I have a class in this month’s Release Classes. You can find them and three more at the PDF Classes page on the MFT site.
I’ve got a couple of cards to show you using the just-this-minute-released Boss Babe stamp set. There are a ton of great sentiments in the set and some are gender-neutral so could be used for anyone and for various occasions. My first one shows how it can be used for a masculine card for any age, really. I made my own Polaroid frame using Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and Square STAX Set 1 Die-namics and framed BB Super Boy. He was stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.
Patterned paper from Fun & Frolic Paper Pack and Hearts & Stripes Paper Pack frame the focal point, with stars and enamel dots for embellishment. I just love this!
My second card is pretty girlie due to the sentiment, I think.
The background was done with Off the Grid Paper Pack and the sentiment was stamped directly on it then framed with Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics, popped up on foam mounting tape. Several images from Get Down to Business were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and also popped up on foam around the frame.
Hearts, cut from Ripe Raspberry card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 3 Die-namics and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics add some love. The paper clip border at the bottom was stamped with Ripe Raspberry dye ink, Safety Orange dye ink, and Cement Gray dye ink and there’s a think border of Ripe Raspberry card stock and Silver Sparkle card stock above the border. I must confess that I love this one pretty much, too :)
And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Boss Babe stamp set in some fun ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!!
