A Heartbreakin' MFT Blog Hop!

It's that time again - welcome to today's MFT Blog Hop Around the Block!! If you haven't hopped over here from Kim's blog - then hop back over there to start and I'll see you when you get back! ;) MFT is releasing 2 must have sets today - the new BC Dzyns "Heartbreaker" set and a sentiment set designed to go with the Isabelle Paper Doll set - the sentiments are SO adorable in it and very versatile too - I'll be reaching for this one quite a bit! The first card I have for you today was done with the new BC Dzyns chica - isn't she absolutely adorable!? I stamped her first - then colored her in with Copics and cut her out. I paper pieced her heart she is leaning on - I actually stamped it twice on my patterned paper - pieced it on once - and then drew a crack for a broken heart on the other heart I stamped - cut the "broken" half off - then pieced it on the first heart with pop dots, make sense? LOL!! I used some of the new MFT digital paper on this card - from the Stephanie Fizer summer line - I am LOVIN' the new digi papers - you must try them out - they are so fun! Once I had my chica cut out and her heart pieced on - I adhered her to some circles I cut with my Nesties - then placed some Hero Arts gemstones around her. The pink panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is from the new "Heartbreaker" set as well. But that's not all I have for you today...

Now I know we all {heart} little Isabelle from the previously released Paper Doll set - so how about a sentiment set to go with her?? Kim has put together just the most adorable little set of sentiments to go with the Paper Doll set - this one is just perfect for Isabelle dressed up in her tutu. I did some masking to get Isabelle in her tutu - then drew in the flooring, ballet bar and mirror behind her to look like she is looking oh so sweet in her Ballet Studio. I mounted the new sentiment on hearts cut with my Nesties. The background was embossed with the CB Swiss Dots folder. I did the ribbon treatment with a mix of a couple of ribbons - I started by gathering a piece of pink organdy ribbon into folds and then sewed a seam at the top once I had it gathered to hold the folds in place. I topped it off with some beautiful ribbon done with flowers and pearls and then added my ribbon to the bottom of my card.

And this is only the start of another amazing MFT Blog Hop - continue on to the uber-talented and super adorable Chelsey's blog for more MFT eye candy - oh - and be on the look out for BLOG CANDY as you hop!
