Bright Idea–MFT September Teaser, Day Six


Hi, everyone, I’m back again with Day Six of MFT’s September Teasers! Today we’re previewing Laina Lamb Design Journal It - Head of the Class, Laina Lamb Design Document It - School Days, Laina Lamb Design School Days Die-namics, Laina Lamb Design Border It – Numbers Die-namics, and Flying Butterflies Die-namics. Just a reminder that release is on September 3rd at 10pm. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog today for more samples from the Design Team using today’s preview products.


I decided to think outside the box for today’s card. The light bulb image and die made a light bulb go off in my head and this is what I came up with. First, I used the cut outs from Die-namics Sun Ray—I used the full negative on another card a while back and kept the cut outs—they came in handy for this card :) They are cut from Lemon Drop card stock and adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut out the light bulb from Sweet Tooth card stock and Laina Lamb Design School Days Die-namics, stamping it with the “bright idea” image from Laina Lamb Design Document It - School Days in Black Licorice ink. I popped it up on foam and then added some clear gems for accent. Love how this turned out!

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from PI – On a Picnic. I think this makes for a quick and very cute invitation :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! That’s it for today—hope to see you back tomorrow for the last day of Teasers for September!
