July Shop & Hop

Welcome to MFT's July Shop & Hop!! All of the new stamps and new Die-Namics are available now in the MFT store by clicking HERE. If you're just stumbling upon this post, you'll want to go back to Kim's blog to start the hop at the beginning!

Tonight I'm sharing a card with you that I made using this month's Triple Scoop Set - Clearly Sentimental About Gardens (free with the purchase of three full sized sets). My best friend in the whole world is coming to visit me next week, and one of our favorite things to do is sit on the patio and drink coffee. When I saw this sentiment, I knew I wanted to make her a card.


I was inspired by a trellis card that I saw on Splitcoast, so I decided to make a shaped trellis, and I ran some vines up and added a schwack (one of my favorite technical terms) of different felt flowers. I also added some felt grass that I cut using the fresh cut grass Die-Namics die and felt from the Earth Girl felt pack.

Your next stop along the hop is over to see the incredibly talented Christina! I'm super excited because I get to meet her in person at CHA at the end of this month. I'm hoping some of her genius rubs off on me!

Don't forget to leave comments along the hop - there's a $15 gift voucher up for grabs. We're not telling you who's giving away the prize, so the more comments you leave, the better your chances of winning! Thanks for stopping by!
