MFT June Teaser, Day Two - Hello Friend


Welcome back to day two of MFT's June teasers. Did you love the Award Ribbon or what????!!! SO much you can do with it, right? Today we're showing you Clearly Sentimental about Friendship, Jolinne - I Love You This Much, and Pretty Pocket (Die-namics Duo - stamp set & die set). But first, a little housekeeping: 
  • The June Guest Designer Contest continues and ends on Monday, June 6th at 10 PM EST. The winner will be announced at the release party. Get the deets here.
  • Teasers continue daily through Tuesday, June 7th. Head on over to the MFT 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 June Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm June 7th, with the hop also starting at the MFT Blog.
And now, Pretty Pocket. Yeah, baby, that pocket is a DIE!!! With all kinds of stamps to go with it. And see the little tab on the upper right corner of the pocket? It's part of the die set! How stinking clever is this?? First of all, I stamped the pocket stitching, then cut it out with the Pretty Pocket die using THIS technique. You might find Jody's PICTORIAL helpful, as well, for lining the stitching stamp up on your stamping block. Notice that fancy leafy flourish on the pocket? That's another amazing Die-namics die releasing this month, called Leafy Flourish! LOVE it. You're going to be seeing me using this baby A LOT! So, I cut out a couple and adhered them to the pocket. Then I stamped the sweet little flower image three times, cut them out, added button centers, and popped them up on foam.


So, did you notice that border? Yep, another new border Die-namics die, the Open Bracket Border. I love it too :) Here's the inside, featuring a stamped flourish, some little stamped flowers, and, of course, the sentiment, from the set along with another Open Bracket Border.


Just look at all the images in this set! Can't wait to use that flippin' cute PEACE sign!

 



So, there you have it! Don't you just love this pocket die and set?!! And the other two dies? Be sure to check out what the other members of the team have for you using this set and die--you'll be amazed at all the different takes on it! This card is also for C4C #90. Get the deets at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another teaser--tomorrow's PI day, you know :)
