Five Minute Friday: Mint Motif Sneak Peek

NOTE: As of the scheduling of this post, the store appears to be up and running but may be a a little slow or have intermittent outages as it is still recovering from the server outage. If you experience any problems please be patient and try again later. This is unprecedented and we thank you for your understanding!

Today is a very special day. Not only is it Five Minute Friday but as I mentioned yesterday, I am thrilled to welcome IHP’s newest exclusive stamp line, Mint Motif, designed by Kimberly Crawford. Today we begin sneak peeks of the two coordinating sets Very Square and Very Square Sentiments, which will be fully released on the 14th.

Before I talk about my card I’d like to welcome Mint Motif’s fabulous design team:

mmdt

Kimberly Crawford – designer
Charlene Austin
Latisha Yoast
Geny Cassady
Kazan Clark
Julie Overby

Please be sure to stop by all of their blogs today and see their first peeks of the new sets!

I have to confess, today’s card is only a Five Minute Friday card because I had stamped various images in different Palette inks a few days ago when I was playing around with the sets when I first got them. So, it was easy for me to die-cut them using the smallest Nestie Blossoms Two die. I put a little clear gemstone on all of them except the last one, where I stamped part of one of the sentiments in Palette Burnt Umber and wrapped a piece of satin white ribbon around to finish it off. This sketch is from Go To Sketches (the one that Tiff had a Petal Press card published in!).

Thanks for stopping in today! Be sure to check the other DT members and check back here on Monday for the next Chicken Girl release with our new design team!

Have a great weekend!

Jeannette aka Jnett said...

The card is cute. I must be Facebook challenged as I can't seem to find the spot where to add it as friends. Tried your site and Mint Motif and still nothing. I must be doing something wrong for sure.
