MFTeasers: Day One!


Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!

Today is the first day of teasers for the newest release from My Favorite Things (someone pinch me...I still can't believe I am here!!)

Today, I am peeking two AWESOME new sets...More Essential Sentiments and Clearly Sentimental About Time!!

My first card uses the "essential" More Essential Sentiments set. This set is JAM packed with sentiments that you just "need" in your stamping arsenal! I have used it here along with the new Die-Namics Layered Label Die (love!!!). You may also spy another new Die-Namic on my card...a Die-Namic Rosette!! I have only used a half rosette here under my sentiment, and I used the Die-Namics 1/4 Rosette Die (two different sizes are being released!!!)

The patterned paper is Be Mine from Echo Park Papers (my current paper obsession), and I used "Love You!, Love Me" for the front of my card, and then rows of XOXO for the inside!




My second card today features the GORGEOUS new Clearly Sentimental About Time set. I know I am still emotional after having Avery (grin), but these sentiments really touch me!


For the focal panel, I used the previously released Die-Namics Framed Greeting Die, and I sponged the edges to age it a bit.

My card also features a new border!! The Die-Namics Dainty Doily Border...I just love it! I added some lace from MFT and some GORGEOUS felt roses using yet another new Die-Namic...Mini Rolled Roses!!!



I added a pearl in the center of each flower and the patterned paper is Curio by Basic Grey.

I finished off the inside with another sentiment from this set!
