MFTeasers: Day One!



Hi everyone!! Happy Friday! I am SO excited that today marks the first day of MFTeasers! Just WAIT and see what Kim & MFT have in store for you this month...WOW!!!



The first set I get to share with you today is a GORGEOUS new set called Sweet & Sassy!! I've used the coordinating new set of Die-Namics too...The Die-Namics Sweet Stack Dies! I LOVE these!!!

I wanted a very simple color combo for my card to really showcase the graphic elements in this set, so I went with a purple/grey/white combo. I stamped the zebra print from this set (the stamp is made to fit the largest die in the Sweet Stack, but I used it by cutting it out with the circle die for my card). I then stamped the sentiment, "Sweet & Sassy" and the frame around it and cut it out with the horizontal window die from the Die-Namics Sweet Stack.

I embossed the panels with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder, and the Smokey Shadow panel was turned the other way for some difference in the dots. I added a border created with the Die-Namics Dainty Dots Border Die and added a rhinestone in the center of each circle. I also added a rhinestone to either end of the sentiment panel to tie it all together. A simple bow, created with The Bow Easy, finishes off the front.



For the inside of my card, I chose another sentiment from the set, "You're On Fire" (LOVE that) and stamped a flourish from the set (I stamped this in Memento Sweet Plum but stamped off once first) underneath it. Another panel of embossed dots completes the look.



I used this week's MFTWSC8 Sketch again for the layout...love this sketch!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:





The second set I have the pleasure of sharing with you today is the newest installment in the Fred Bear lineup at MFT, Oopsie Daisy! Isn't he SOOOOOO cute? I love him!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out the panel and embossed it with Rectangle Nestabilities, drew in the frame and added two twinkles. I've used some more new My Minds Eye papers on this card, Stella Rose Gertie (LOVE) and some more delish new Die-Namics...the Die-Namics Upsy Daisy Flower Builder!! LOVE LOVE LOVE these flowers!!! With my cluser of flowers and big bow, I had no room for my sentiment on the front.



For the inside, I used some more delish MME papers and added the sentiment, "If friends were flowers I'd pick you...every single time". LOVE that sentiment and the font too!



Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
