MFT's August Teasers Day 1!

Hi and welcome to Day 1 of MFT's August Teasers! The August Release kicks off my favorite time of year to create, the Holidays! This month we will start with some fun, and spooky new products! 

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects. 


First up is a card I created with the new Lisa Johnson Stamp Set, Splendid Sunflowers and the coordinating Splendid Sunflowers Die-namics.

The layout of the card is based on one of the sketches included with the new Blueprints 6 Die-namics. And the background pattern is cut with the new Triangle Screen Die-namics.


The flower is created in three steps. First I stamped the sunflower in Lemon Drop Ink, then the center in Kraft  Ink, and finally the outer ring in Hot Fudge Ink. Then I add the Stickles to the ring. The leaves are stamped in Gumdrop Green  Ink


On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Finishing Flourishes


My second project is a sweet, little Halloween Treat Bag. How cute is this little bag, cut with the new Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics. I cut the bag from Black Licorice Card Stock and used the polka dot stamp from the Distressed Background Blocks Stamp Set with embossing ink and white embossing powder. I added a ribbon handle. 

The sweet image and the sentiment is from the new Pretty Pumpkin Stamp Set. She is colored with Copics and her skirt is paper pieced. 

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 9th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum.
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on August 6th at 10 PM EST.  You'll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
  •  Be sure to check in on the MFT Blog daily to see the new products as they are unveiled, and for your chance to win one of seven, $75 Gift Certificates.
