geek is chic {mft guest designing}

This is my last post for MFT, a look back at some of my favorite products just released.

Before I show you what I made, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the MFT team and to all of you who visited my blog this past week while I guested with them. You've all made this such a fun experience!  I've been overwhelmed by the encouraging words left on my project posts and the kindness of the MFT staff (particularly Erica - you are a gem!)

On to today's project.  I went a little quirky with this one...

Whenever I design for a company, I like to lay out everything I own made by that particular company. With all of the dies and stamps spread over my craft area (read: kitchen table) I couldn't help but pick up the new geek is chic glasses die-namics and then look at the circle die found in the new blueprints 18 die-namics set and think of creating a little face.

I die-cut the circle twice, both out of white cardstock, and free-handed a hairline out of one circle. I colored them using copic markers and die-cut the glasses out of black cardstock.  The little dots for the eyes are tag holes, from the new tag talk die-namics set.  Fun, huh? Actually, my favorite part are the glassy lenses: I filled the inside of the frames with glossy accents before setting the eyeballs inside :)

I adhered the striped cover up die-namic to the card base (in black, naturally... black and white stripes are oh-so-chic) but cut away one of the stripes to make room for the fun sentiment.

I don't know if you can tell, but I swiped a light blue marker inside each of the framed areas, between black stripes. I felt like it added a little extra depth to the whole thing.

And that's all for me! It's been grand, MFT - thank you so much for having me on as your August guest designer!
