Ballet Millie & Game Night Duo

Good morning! Isn't it a great day to check out Day Two of the MFT Teasers? I'm really enjoying all of the fresh ideas and stamp sets! Aren't the MFT Designers great? If you enter the MFT GDT Challenge HERE, you could win over $100 worth of stamps and be a Guest DT member, next month too! You can also see a list of all of the MFT DT Teasers HERE, at MFT blog starting at 11 AM EST. The stamps being featured, will be available for purchase at MFT, starting OCT 6th, after the Blog Hop and Release Party, at 10PM EST on SCS! Please come and join us, we'd love to see you!


For Ballet Millie, I thought she was so sweet and demure that I decided to keep her card very, very simple to let her shine.

I used the Scalloped and the Classic Spellbinders Squares to form a frame, and in the corners I used a Cuttlebug Swirl Bracket. Then I placed popdots underneath it, to bring out the frame, and make it look like she's on stage. I colored Millie in with my Tombow markers and kept it light an airy. Placing a light metallic Pink cardstock under her brought out the pink I had painted her Tutu in with.


For Game Night Duo, I went with a Halloween theme. Every fall our church holds a Game Night, on Halloween, for the families who want to come. So I made an "invite", just for fun, in honor of it.


I used the MFT Banner Die-Namic to make my banner, and the Open Scallop Die-Namic for a border. I stamped the images from the Game Night Duo set, and cut out the playing card symbols. The alphabet on the banner is the MFT Uppercase Wendy stamp set. I have never made a Halloween card, or used the colors before, and I love how it all looks :)


I'm glad you visited! Please come back again tomorrow for some more Fab MFT DT creations, HERE!! :)

  2. The ballet card looks so elegant that I think it would be beautiful framed and hung in a little girl's bedroom. I hope you don't mind, but I just might case it and give it to my sweet little niece. Both cards are so creative.
