MFT December Teaser, Day One


 Can you believe it's time for MFT teasers again!? It's truly scary how fast time is flying, isn't it? Today we're showing you previews of Clearly Sentimental about Teaching (previous Triple Scoop set), Tweeny Teen - You Give Me Wings, and Die-namics Duos - Textile Rectangle Frame & Stamp Set. Before i show you my card, though, here's a few things you need to know:
  • The December Guest Designer Contest begins today and ends on Tuesday, November 30nd at 10 PM EST. The winner will be announced at the release party. Get the deets here.
  • Teasers begin today and will be daily through Wednesday, December 1st. Be sure to check Kim's blog at 11:00am for links to designers previewing each day. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts. Leaving a comment on every designer's blog post will give you the best chance of winning every day :)
  • The November Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm December 1st, with the hop starting at Kim's Blog.

OK, you got all that? On with my card. I'm using two of the new release sets today: Clearly Sentimental About Teaching and Die-namics Duos - Textile Rectangle Frame & Stamp Set. Every month, the Die-namics frames get better and better, don't they? This month's has two frame patterns, an outline, and several sentiments--you're going to LOVE it!


First, I stamped one of the textile images on Red Hot card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with the matching Die-namics frame, Then I stamped it again, cut the center out before stamping the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Teaching on it, swiped the edges with black ink, and popped this up on the red layer. The lined paper element was cut with the Notebook Edge Die-namics die, and I finished it off with some black and Kraft gingham ribbon that has a red thread running through it. I also used MFT's Black Licorice card stock on this card.



Thanks SO much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another MFT teaser! This card is also for  Crazy 4 Challenges #65. Get all the deets on the C4C blog.
