My Mind's Eye Trifecta


TGIF!  
This week my fellow Tombow teamies and I have been sharing projects that we created using products from My Mind's Eye.  

I received a wonderful selection of goodies from the Follow Your Heart-Be Amazing collection.
For my first card, I used some of the papers from the 6 x 6 pad to create 
little hills and then stamped the bicycle and sentiment in Adirondack Espresso ink and added some stitching with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #879 (Brown) and sun rays with #991 (Light Ochre).  I also added a bit of #991 to the edges of the chipboard button in the center of the sun rays. I used Tombow Mono Dots Roller to adhere the paper layers and a Power Tab to attach the chipboard button for the sun.


For my next card, I used some of the paper from the 6 x 6 pad to create a backdrop for the Tilda die from Poppystamps.  I tied some My Mind's Eye twine around the card and to the center of the button.  Remember, no naked buttons..:) It just takes a second to finish them off with twine, floss or even a narrow ribbon.  Mono Dots Roller was used to adhere all paper layers and a Power Tab was used to attach the button.

 My final card used some of the softer feminine elements from the Follow Your Heart-Be Amazing collection.  I added a little distressing to the edges of the print and solid panels and added a bit of Scattered Straw Distress ink to create a shabby chic look.  The image was stamped with Adirondack Espresso ink and shading was added with the Scattered Straw ink and a sponge dauber.  I used Tombow Mono Dots Roller to adhere all of the flat cardstock panels.  Tombow Mono Multi was used to adhere the ribbon to the card base.  Tombow Foam Tabs were used to pop up the image panel and finally a Power Tab was used to adhere the button and ribbon to the card.  

Thank you My Mind's Eye for your generosity!

I love the use of the tilth floral die--I have this die & for the life of me cant figure out how you created your flower. Share your process? Maybe I have a different version of the tilth flower?

I left a comment asking how to make the flower out of the Tilth Floral die referenced. Never mind--I found the correct die name: Poppy Stamps Die-Tilda Swirl.
