MFT Teasers Day 5 - Who's That Girl Bottom Of My Heart

Today is the last day of teasers before the big release party tonight and the Shop-N-Hop.  In a way, I'm sad to see this day come since it's my last day being on the December Temp Team.  I have had a blast being a part of the teasers and showing the amazing sets/dies MFT is releasing tonight. 

Now, I have several favorite Who's That Girl sets, and this month's release Who's That Girl From The Bottom Of My Heart is sure to be a favorite of many because of it's versatility.  It can not only be used for Valentine's Day, but friendship, thinking of you and sympathy as well.  All you have to do is just mix different sayings with the main image.  So, are you ready to see Who's That Girl in a different light?

First up, I've made a vintage type sympathy card using WTG in soft rose & vanilla colors.    I stippled Tim Holtz tea stain ink around the edges of the card, image, and the scalloped/chain die cut borders before popping up the main image.  For the gold pearl stickers I added, I had to lightly sand them for a "worn" look and then stippled tea stain over that.  Now make sure to lightly sand the pearls or you'll end up removing ALL of the gold plating like I did the first time around.  Since I wanted matching brads, I took the punched out dainty dots border designer paper, and used those as "faux" brads.  A little gold ice stickles matches them to the pearls.  I also spread gold ice stickles over the rolled flowers using a  Q-tip. 

Here's a look at the inside using the sympathy quote from the now retired Essential Sentiments. 

Next up, our WTG is used for just your standard friendship card.  I wanted to make this one monochromatic, so I grabbed some SU brocade blue card stock and some Prima vintage designer paper I've had in my stash for who knows how long.  Using the Doily Die-namic and the Faux Crochet border Die-namic, I cut both out of the card stock and designer paper.  Once that was done, Tim Holtz faded jeans ink is stippled over them and the around the card. 

After popping up the doily and the main image, I decided something else was needed.  Finding a silver "love" clip charm from the stash, I lightly pulled up one part of the doily to clip it to.  However, that spot would not stay back down, so using Jen Del Muro's philosophy of "a mess up is a great time to embellish", I pulled up all of the edges of the doily which gave it some extra dimension.  Cool!

For the inside, I used one the friendship saying that comes with the set and the new heart trio Heart Trio Die-namic being released tonight at 10PM EST. 

Last up is our basic Valentine card done up in a vintage style once again using the Doily Die-namic, and both of the soon to be released Dainty Dots Border and Heart Trio Die-namic.  This time I used some Basic Gray Curio designer paper and SU card stock.  The main image is stamped right onto the SU so saffron card stock and colored with my prismacolor markers.  Tim Holtz walnut stain ink is stippled over the entire card, sides, die cuts and images to give it more of a "worn look".  Everything is popped up except the key and keyhole brads from my stash.
