MFT January Teasers Day 1

I can't hardly believe we are at the end of another year and ready to begin 2011!! Today is Day 1 of MFTeasers for January. I have been on MFT Design Team on one year! I have enjoyed it so much and can't wait to see what 2011 holds!

Today we are sharing previews of More Essential Sentiments and Clearly Sentimental about Time. You can stop by Kim's blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.

My cards today use the More Essential Sentiments and the new Layered Label Die. I just love the concept of this die! It can be used in so many different combinations. A sentiment, a pretty piece of paper, and this die set makes a quick and easy card!


For my first card I stamped a sentiment and layered all three pieces of the set. If you look at the bottom of my card you will also see a new Die-namic, Dainty Lace Border die, being released this month too. My papers and fabric are Websters Pages. I added lace, sewing, and twine.


On the inside I used the largest die by itself with a sentiment, leaving room to write a little note.
On my second card I used another sentiment from the stamp set and layered the three dies in a different combination. The paper is from Basic Grey Curio and I added ribbon, lace, and sewing. I also used distressing ink around the edges.

I left the inside simple, just using the Die-namic Flower Silhoutte.

The release of all the new products will be on January 4th at 10 PM EST. Here are the details you need to know!
  • The MFT release is on January 4th at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes!
  • The guest designer contest is ON! Check out the forum for details on how YOU can win over $100 in stamp sets and play along with the DT for a month.
  • Be sure to leave comments as you go for a chance to win one of 2 stamp sets being given away daily, just for leaving a comment. You can check Kim's blog every day for the winners.
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with another Teaser.
