Tonight I am showcasing Die-namics Barn. While it coordinates perfectly with so many products released this month, as usual, I wanted to do something different. When I think barn, I think barn weddings, with lights strung up everywhere. Its some romantic notion I have, probably from a book or movie. :) Using some great products from MFT stamps, I was able to create a pretty fun card with my inspiration in mind!

After cutting Die-namics Barn from both Steel Grey and Steel Blue cardstocks, I assembled the lights. Using a series of circles from Die-namics Mason Jar, I created a string of lights.

When Die-namics Barn cuts, it does allow the doors to be open. How clever is that?! I placed a piece of Banana Split cardstock behind it, and the upper window, to create the look of warm light. The lines of the barn also come through in the die cutting, but I added to the depth with a dark grey color pencil.

The grass background is the Free with $60 purchase, Die-namics Grassy Edges. By using Jellybean Green and Olive Green cardstocks, I kept the evening look. And to continue that look even more, I used Steel Blue cardstock for the base, stamped with Myriad Background in watermark ink. That was stamped for the look of stars.

Don't forget to stop at the MFT Blog and get linked to the rest of the team, along with more details about how to win! Thanks for all the sweet comments this release! I really appreciate them all!

thanks for stopping by!
