I have a couple of cards to share that I made with the new You Move Me Die-namics and Stamp Set. This new set has so many possibilities!!


For my first card I cut out my frame with the die included in the set and stamped the sentiment. I die cut the plane from DP and the clouds from felt in Puff Cloud White. I also added a sun using the Sunshine die.

I used the new Mini Ticket Strip Border Die and added sewing, Bakers Twine in Mandarin Orange, and a button.


I added place to write a note on the inside and another little plane.


Next up I used the frame die again and stamped another great sentiment from the set.  Then I used the moon, flames, smoke, stars stamps from the set. The rocket is die cut.

Stitching and buttons finish it off.


On the inside I used the rocket and smoke stamps.



Hope you have enjoyed the release! You can find all the new products HERE!

MFT July Teaser Day 5

It's the final day of MFT Teaser for July. The last two stamp sets we are previewing are Who's That Mermaid and and Clearly Sentimental About SympathyYou can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers sharing projects today.


I am using Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy. If you are like me you only make sympathy cards when you need them. This is the perfect set to have on hand when the need arises.

I stamped the sentiment on my paper and used a chipboard frame. I used the Simply Scallop Large Die and lace for my bottom border. I used the Leafy Flourish Die and the new Large Rolled Rose Die for my embellishment.


Here is a close up of the rose. I cut is out, misted the paper with water, and crinkled it up a bit to soften the paper. Then I rolled it. I added distressing ink and stickles the the edges, and a pearl to the middle.


I kept the inside simple, added another sentiment and another Leafy Flourish.


Here are the details about the upcoming release on July 5 at 10 PM EST:
  • The MFT release is on July 5 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available July 5 at 10 PM EST.
