MFTeasers: Day Two!



Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

Today is the second day of MFTeasers for the newest release from My Favorite Things, and I have some Fred Bear sweetness to share with you today!

Fred Bear Catches Some ZZZ's is the latest offering in the Fred Bear line at MFT, and true to form, he is as cute as can be!  I colored him with Copic Markers and then using some Colorless Blender and a textured piece of paper towel, I dabbed at his fur to create some texture.

All of the patterned paper is from Times & Seasons from Echo Park Papers, and I used one of the patterns to paper piece his pillow.  I used the darling Mini Pennant Die-Namics for the "ZZZ" and tucked it under his pillow.  Check out that fabby new border die...it's the Wonky Scallop Border Die-Namics and I am in LOVE.

I added tons of stitching, some twill ribbon and a bow, which I topped with a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics and a bit of Honeydew Twine.


For the inside I added some more patterned paper, another border with the Wonky Scallop Border Die-Namics, and two sentiments, because they go SO perfectly together..."I haven't been ignoring you" and "I was hibernating".  LOVE that!  Some antique brads on both the outside and inside complete the card.


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




Speaking of Die-Namics, here is some exciting news!  Starting on November 1 at 10 PM EST, most Die-Namics dies will be available for purchase with OR WITHOUT the stamp set!   If there were any Die-Namics you had your eye on, for example, the Tag Your'e It Die-namics or the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics, and wanted to purchase without the coordinating stamp set, you will be able to!  SO awesome right?
