For my first card, I used the Mouse in the House-It's Your Birthday. I actually used the supplimentary image for my card, and not the mouse. I stamped my little birdie and balloon on X-Press It blending card, and then colored him with my Copics. My cardstock colors are Fossill(MFT), Orange Fizz(MFT), Sweet Tooth(MFT), and Rose Red(SU). I paired it with the MME Six by Six Vanity Fair pad. My border, which reminds me of clouds, is the new Triple Scallop Border Die-namics, and I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics for my sentiment. TO finish, I used the Orange Fizz Grosgrain and Michael's brads.


For the inside, I used the same supplies.



My second card uses the Inspired by the Front Porch-Fall set. I stamped my rocking chair with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on X-Press It blending card. I used Colorbox chalk ink for my sentiment. The main image was cut out using the Oval Stax Die-namics, and layered with the Decorative Doily Oval Die-namics. My cardstock colors are Hot Fudge(MFT), Jellybean Green(MFT), River Rock(SU), and Sweet Tooth(MFT).  I paired it with the MME Six by Six All Spice pad. For my embellishments, I used the Medium Leafy Flourish Die-namics paired with the new Layered Rose Die-namics. My ribbon is Walnut Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and I used Michael's brads. The wave on my paper was created with the new Wavy Edge Die-namics.


For the inside, I used the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:








Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out the MFT blog to see who all is participating today, and don't forget to comment for your chance to win!!

Queen Mary said...

Jess, these are both beautiful and really show off the breadth of your skills -- even though both have your trademark layers, the first one makes me think of the heat of August, and the second one, the cooling of September, the return to routine and a calmer, less frenetic time. They are beautiful, thanks.
