Introducing... Die-namics from MFT!

Hi everyone and welcome to a SPECIAL, one-day-early MFTeaser.  Today, we are revealing a BRAND NEW product to MFT: Die-namics.

As the name implies, this a new line of DIES!  I could not be more excited!  The dies are available for sale on May 5, 10 PM EST, along with a TON of new stamp sets.  It's an exciting time here at MFT!  :)

There are THREE new dies releasing on May 5th @ 10 PM EST:
  • Cloud Trio $14.95 (Offers 3 sizes of clouds, all in ONE convenient die. The smallest cloud measures 1.25" wide x .70" tall. The medium cloud measures 1.89" wide x 1.06" tall. The largest cloud measures 2.51" wide x 1.41" tall.)
  • Jumbo Scallop $10.95 (Measures 6" long, with each scallop measuring 1.5" wide.)
  • Scalloped Scallop $10.95 ((Measures 6" long, with each scallop measuring 1.5" wide.)
The design team has done some AMAZING things with the dies and have come up with some pretty GENIUS things to cut with them, so be sure to head over to Kim's blog at 11 AM EST for a complete list of participating designers.

My card uses a surprising material, so be sure to read all the details below. :)


The scalloped border was die-cut with the Jumbo Scallop die.  See that cool material I cut?  Guess what it is?  A GIFT BAG!  Yep, I have been on the prowl for materials to cut with my Die-namics and found a pink, lace-covered gift bag at Walmart!  It was on clearance for $2.  I cut it apart, and now I have some fun "fabric" to use with my Die-namics.  YAY!

I used a Big Shot machine to cut with and used the "normal" stack of the multipurpose platform and the 2 normal cutting plates with the gift bag material and die in between the 2 clear cutting plates.  Easy peasy and it cut like a charm. :)

You can view DT and customer creations using Die-namics in the SCS gallery HERE

Die-namics can cut a TON of things and the design team has been working like mad to come up with MANY materials that can be used with the dies.  Here are a few of them:
  • cork
  • felt
  • sandpaper
  • heavy card stock
  • patterned paper
  • denim
  • vellum
  • fabric
  • foam
The list goes on... you'll have to check out the rest of the DT members creations to see what else you can add to the list!  :)

Here is a peek at the 3 dies being released on May 5th:
 CLOUDS!  I've seen them EVERYWHERE... patterned paper.. stickers... and NOW we have a DIE!  *swoon*  I am SO excited about these! 
This jumbo scallop is the perfect oval shape, and the wide spacing sets them apart.  Another awesome thing about these edge dies is that they NEST inside one another.  How cool is that?  I didn't use that technique with my card today, but I did with a card that will be posted on Monday, so I'll be sure to remind you then. 

So, which one is YOUR favorite?  Can you choose just one?  LOL
