MFT Teasers Day 1- Tweeny Teen


please click on photo to view a larger image

hello & welcome!! i am honored & thrilled to be a part of MFT's temporary design team this month! Can someone pinch me please 'cause i still think i'm dreaming!!

Starting today thru release day, Wed. Dec 1st, me, a bunch of my dear friends & fellow MFT fanatics (aka the MFT junkies) and the incredible MFT Design Team members will be bringing you teasers to get you inspired & stamping with us!

Please check out the MFT Blog each day for a list of participating designers and be sure to mark your calendar for the big release party on the 1st in the MFT forum on Splitcoast Stampers- i'd love to chat with you & share in the fun. MFT release parties ROCK and EVERYONE is welcome!

For my project, i worked with the sweet, soon to be released
Tweeny Teen- You Give Me Wings set.
Tweeny Teens are part of MFT's adorable and beloved Pure Innocence stamp line. As soon as i saw this sweetie, i knew she would be the focal image for a project for my daughter's room!

i started by saturating my plain wood clock base with turquoise blue glimmer mist until it had a deep color and tons of glimmer.

i used my cricut machine and MFT's Bling 'Bers template to cut out the shadows of the key numbers. After cutting, the numbers were then stamped on using MFT's Bling 'Bers stamp set and purple ink. of course they needed some bling too!

Because it's a small clock face, i decided to make flowers for the other numbers using MFT's Flower and Leaf Trio Dienamic . MFT's felt adds lovely texture, and MFT's princess pearls made pretty centers!

next, i stamped the image and sentiment onto an MFT white paper panel. i colored with copic markers, and cut the image out. A thick coating of stickles on her wings and a touch of spica glitter pen on her pant cuff seams added even more bling to the mix! the sentiment was stamped and cut with some pinking scissors.
here's a closer look (click on photo to enlarge it):


oooh--spy the pretty heart under the sentiment? it's a peek at part of the new, soon to be released MFT Dienamic Hearts a Plenty & it's another MUST HAVE! i pierced around the heart and i just LOVE how it looks!

The Jumbo RicRac Dienamic was used to embellish the face as well.

The image was popped up slightly using dimensionals, but the clock movement severely limits how tall you can layer images on a clock face-you may have to whittle away some wood to get enough clearance!

i had a ball making & sharing this project with you! i'll be back tomorrow with another project and a peek at more MFT goodies that will be available soon! thanks for visiting!
