In August I won a $100,- gift card from MFT and you can imagine that I performed a little dance after I read their e-mail with happy news. Of course I had a wish lists and my father wanted it to bring it after his visit to the States. Unfortunately, some of the products on my wish list were sold out, so I had to choose some other sets like this Birthday Bear set. It turned out to be a good choice. The bears are lovely and it has got great sentiments. I didn't order the dies, but it fuzzy handcut is no problem at all with this set. I created a shaker cards with quite a simple sketch.
The London Mouse stamps and the London skyline die were a must have for me as a teacher of English. I wouldn't have ordered these sets if I had to buy them, because they are quite expensive. But with this gift card I couldn't resist these sets. I had seen so many beautiful cards made with them. However, I have some troubles with the stamps. I have great ideas in mind, but it doesn't work at all. This is the first card I have finished using the sets although I only used the London Eye stamp... Hopefully, more will follow! For this card I used the same idea as for the first card, but now I created a hill to give the card more interest. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and I stamped it with Stazon on acetate.In case you wonders what is under the 's' of congrats, it is just a sequin who could resist gravity...
All papers I used for today's cards are from Simple Stories. With some leftovers I created the last card. With the gift card I ordered some stitched circle dies as well and I used these dies for this card. The star is from spellbinder (without any border at all) and the Hello die is from Lawn Fawn.
That was it for today. Thanks for hopping by and I wish all of you a lovely weekend!
