MFT September Shop & Hop - Spa Day!


Welcome to the new release blog hop!  If you've just stumbled upon this post you'll want to start back at the beginning of the hop - over at Kim's blog.  All of the new products are now available and you can find them right HERE.  I have one last project to share with you using the new Pure Innocence Spa Day set.  I just love this little cutie in her bathrobe and so I made a little gift packaging  to go with my card.  


I paired my pampered girl with some Doodlebug papers in soothing purple and greens.  Then because it was a bathrobe, I used my flocking technique (tutorial found HERE) to make her bathrobe all fuzzy and terrycloth like.  I also used some flocked paper and added a flower cut from the new Prima Donna Petals die as well as a strip cut with the Solid Bracket Border die.   


Here's a close up of her bathrobe.  Perfect for a cool fall night like the one we're having!


Then I grabbed one of the clear paint cans I had lying around and stamped a sentiment from the set onto the new Dog Tag die.  The sentiment actually comes all on the same line so I selectively inked it to stamp it on the tag this way.  I tied it with some twine and added a center from the Prima Donna Petals die.


For the top of the can, I lined the lid with the larger size of the Dainty Doily duo and then added a couple flowers cut from the Prima Donna Petals die as well as one cut from the new Rolled Mum die.  Isn't it pretty? I SO need to make a home decor project with these flowers.


Well that's all I've got for you tonight!  Thanks for sticking around through all my pictures.  I can't wait to hear what you're excited about and what is going in your cart tonight!  Don't forget to leave comments along the hop as one designer is holding a gift voucher and will draw randomly from the comments left on their blog.  Now you're on your way to my sweet and amazingly talented friend Barbara.
