Good morning! I’m back today with another sneak from MFT’s fabulous August release! Today we’re showing you Tag, You're It Die-namics and Stamp Set, Inspired by the Beach, and My Heart Belongs To (CHA set). Before I go on, though, here are a few things you need to know:
  • The August Guest Designer Contest ends tonight at 10 PM EST. The winner will be announced at the release party. Get the deets here.
  • Teasers continue daily through Tuesday, August 2nd. 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 August Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm August 2nd, with the hop also starting at the MFT Blog.
I’m showing you Tag, You’re It Die-namics and Stamp Set. I decided to make a set for a 25th wedding anniversary gift.

I was going for elegant with my silver and white color combo. Unfortunately the shiny silver made it very hard to get a good photo, but I hope you “get the picture” ;-)

I used the new tag die, added a sentiment from the set and embellished it up with the new Open Scalloped Doily Duo (I used the smaller die here—sweet!) and Hearts Aplenty Die-namics.

Here’s a close up of the tag. The white inner circle was cut using the Sweet Stack Die-namics set. See how nicely it fits inside the doily?

And here’s a close up of the back of the tag.

The matching card uses the new Fancy Flourish Die-namics die and By the Numbers. I’m thinking I’m going to get lots of use out of both of these fabulous sets!

The sentiment is on a Well Worn Die-namics die cut and popped up on foam.

Here’s the inside of the card with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Love. Again, MFT stamp sets and dies just give you so many options to mix ‘n match to come up with your own fabulous designs!
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this set.
