teaserday1_2013aug28

Hello!! Welcome to the first day of MFT September Teasers! I can’t believe it’s almost September already but I am so glad we’re almost at my favorite season of the year—Fall. And what better way to kick off September Teasers than a new set by Lisa JohnsonLJD Fall Foliage and Die-namics LJD Fall Foliage. Additionally, today we’re previewing Pure Innocence Cornucopia, Blueprints 7 Die-namics, and Mona Pendleton Designs Houndstooth Stencil. Release is September 3rd at 10pm. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog today for more samples from the MFT Design Team.

I just LOVE this new set by Lisa. Not surprising since I love all things Fall! I started with a Hot Fudge card stock base, then added a Primitive Cream card stock layer cut with the large mat from Die-namics Blueprints 5. Then I stamped the sentiment with Hot Fudge ink.

Next I cut out all the leaves, etc., from Die-namics LJD Fall Foliage and stamped them with the coordinating images from LJD Fall Foliage using the rock and roll technique. I inked the images, from top to bottom, with Brick Red ink, Jellybean Green ink, Grape Jelly ink, Kraft ink, and Orange Fizz ink. Then I used some SU! inks that I kept just for this purpose to keep from messing up my awesome MFT ink pads. I gently shaped the leaves and popped everything up on foam. For the acorns, I used Kraft ink and Hot Fudge ink.

I stamped another sentiment from the set on the inside, along with a couple more of those adorable acorns.
