Sneak peek at a BRAND SPANKING NEW MFT product

[If you're looking for my Stamp Simply card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

MFT
is PROUD to introduce Die-namics, it’s own EXCLUSIVE, American made line of steel dies! Each die comes in a clear bag adorned with the FABULOUS Die-namics logo!

That's right, MFT dies!!! This is so stinkin' exciting! These dies will be available for purchase for the May release on May 5th, at 10pm EDT. Here are the three designs:

Clouds - $14.95

Small – 1.25” wide and .70” tall
Medium – 1.89” wide and 1.06” tall

Jumbo Scallops - $10.95
MFT
Die-namics Jumbo Scallops
(perfectly smooth oval-ish scallops)
6” long, with each scallop measuring 1.5”


What do you think? Aren't they awesome!??!!

I'll bet you want to see them in action, right? Well, OK, I do happen to have a little card for you--using all three dies! I couldn't stop with one, LOL!!


I used white cardboard for my clouds--you know, the kind that comes in the back of certain DSP? Then I brushed it with Weathered Wood Distress ink to give it a little "rainy" look. And, of course, I used both scallop dies for the border. I love them!!!!!!!!!! Other MFT products are: Glittered Garnishes - Summer, Birthday Blast ribbon, Scoop o'Buttons - Summer Collection, Red Hot card stock, and Stephanie Fizer Papers - Summer Collection. For all of the dies, I used my normal Cuttlebug sandwich: A plate, B plate, card stock, die with the cutting edge down, C plate (I know my B and C plates are reversed as to the recommendations but this is how I prefer them) and I ran it through twice. I don't know if that was necessary or not, I just did it to be sure. They cut like a hot knife through buttah, peeps!


Guess what else? All of the VIP packages that were sold on April 20th contained a surprise item: one of these dies--you never know what might find it's way into one of those packages ;-)

Thanks for stopping by! More of the Design Team will be showing you projects using the new dies today, so be sure and check back on Kim's blog at 11:00am to get the list. I'm sure you'll be glad you did :)
