MFT January Teaser, Day One!


Can you believe it's time for MFT teasers again!? No! We're not starting them on the wrong day! Starting this month, we're moving things up a day--teasers start on Fridays and release will be on Tuesdays.

Today we're showing you previews of Clearly Sentimental about Time and More Essential Sentiments (which is designed to work with a brand new, totally awesome Die-namics die--Layered Labels). Before I show you my card, though, here's a few things you need to know:
  • The January Guest Designer Contest begins today and ends on Monday, January 3rd 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 Tuesday, January 4th. Head on over to Kim's blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. 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 :) Check the MFT blog daily for the winners.
  • The January Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm January 4th, with the hop also starting at Kim's Blog.
Now for my card. I'm showing you More Essential Sentiments and part of the new Layered Labels Die-namics die. It's designed to mix and match the layers for different looks.

I started off by stamping/cutting four copies of the Flower Silhouetted Die-namics Die and Stamp Set with Memento London Fog ink. I colored one lightly with Copic markers and left the others uncolored, popping the colored one up on pop dots. Then I cut one part of the Layered Labels die, stamped the sentiment from More Essential Sentiments on it, and popped it up on top of some ribbon.


Here's the inside. More Flower Silhouettes and another sentiment from More Essential Sentiments.



Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back here tomorrow for Teaser Day Two!
