MFT September Release Countdown Day 2

It's two days until My Favorite Things September Release! Are your
wish lists growing longer with each passing countdown day?

A must have for tea lovers is Laina Lamb's Tea Party Die-namics and
Cup of Tea clear stamps featuring some tea-riffic sentiments.

I die cut the mugs from watercolor card stock, and of course I had to ink distress
and spatter them with water. I chose Whimsical Waves as the background to mimic
rising steam. I stacked the cups, added the heart, and finished off with the sentiment.

Next up is a card featuring the Stitched Scallop Basic Edged Die-namics. There are
four styles to choose from and I picked the curved edge which can be used in either
landscape or portrait format.

I covered a white card base with striped paper and adhered the scallop edge panel
on top. I stamped some Bold Blooms and leaves and cut them with the matching dies
then assembled them on the card.

The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of Blueberry card stock and adhered
to the card. The card was finished off with some 3mm clear sequins.

Be sure to visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more
peeks and inspiration from the design team, and leave a comment there for

Second card:


  1. Love both of your colorful cards, Donna. Your Distress inking is so perfect. I was thinking I didn't need an another floral set but you may be enabling me with your second card.

  2. Adorable on both cards, the striped paper on second really draws your eye in on the card.

  3. The 'steam' was the first thing that caught my eye ... you clever girl! I'd love a real set of those darling tea cups, Donna! MFT's florals are just incredibly sweet ... made even sweeter by your talented hands - gorgeous card! xx
