This MFT sweetie was way too much fun to colour--I wanna stamp 400 of her!
If you can't wait to get your hands on this Blooming Good Day stamp... (and/or the two other new Pure Innocence stamps that you'll see previewed today by the My Favorite Things team) ...then you'll be happy to know she'll be available February 3rd at MFT!
The wee matching card (3 inches x 2 1/2 inches)
uses the sentiment from the Blooming Good Day MFT set:
Have a Blooming Good Day!

3...the box template
(and make a high-backed 3x3 box)
- Stamp Set MFT Pure Innocence Blooming Good Day
- Perfect Paper Panels, Black Archival ink, clear embossing powder, heat gun
- Copic markers & Prismacolour pencils, Spica glitter pen (clear)
- Glitzy Glitter, Diamond Glaze, Tombow Monomulti
- Box template (linked below as well), scallop punch
- River Rock Cardstock & Cosmo Cricket patterned paper
- Paper piercer, needle, thread (turquoise, yellow, & red) seed beads
Step 1) Stamp colour & pierce one MFT Pure Innocence Blooming Good Day image. Create dimension by stamping and cutting the section with her holding the watering can. I stamped it on Perfect Paper Panels and embossed on it. That paper IS perfect--nice & heavy too so it holds up to sewing beautifully...
Step 2) Trim the image (I should have done that but got excited about adding bits on instead...) & add red thread knots to the hem of her dress
Step 3) Stitch seed beads on her her pigtails to make those retro bauble pigtail holders.
Step 4) Pierce & stitch the grass & flower stem. Add a bead in the flower center.
Step 5) Glue on some Glitzy Glitter for the water (it looks real--super sparkly, I tell ya!)
Step 6) Colour the watering can with glitter & add a coat of Crystal Lacquer (makes it extra glittery.) :o)
Step 7) Adhere the dimensional layer to the image.
Step 8) Print, score, & cut box template. Cut strips of 12x12 paper (just a touch over 3 inches high x 12 inches. Adhere it to the box & trim it (stitch first if you like sewing.)
A) Stamping the sentiment on Perfect Paper Panels in black ink
B) Embossing it with clear embossing powder.
C) Punching it out with a scallop punch
D) Piercing & stitching around it & colouring the outer petals (Copics)
E) Cutting out a flower from Cosmo Cricket paper
F) Cutting some cardstock leaves & piercing & stitching leaf veins
G) Assembling it on a 3 inch wide by 2.3 inch tall mini card
(high-backed 3x3 box)
The bottom of this box measures a touch over
3 inches wide by 3 inches high
(and the same with the back panel piece)
It's 1 3/4 inches from front to back.
