Family trip, girls at cheer camp, son at 2-a-day football practices, get kids ready for school, school starts, girls promptly get sick... who get my hubby sick... who get ME sick. Night owl turned exhausted sick woman, went to bed EARLY every night since school started 2 weeks ago. That about covers it. LOL So, what have YOU been doing for the last 19 days? :)
When I sat down to stamp a couple days ago, I really felt like I forgot how. LOL Luckily, the stamps I was working with lend themselves to simple designs and clean lines. Speaking of STAMPS, today marks day one of MFTeasers! It's teaser time! I'll post some info about the coming release at the end of the post, so be sure to scroll down when you are done looking at the pics. :)
I started with Clearly Sentimental about Harvest and 2 of the new Die-namics dies being released on September 1st: Perfect Petal Trio and Perfect Bracket Edge.
What makes the Perfect Bracket Edge perfect, you ask? (even if you didn't ask, just roll with it) Well... it was uniquely and geniously designed to work with various widths of paper. It has several levels of lumps and bumps, which translate to a beautiful design for the edge of your paper, from 6 inches, down to 3 1/2 inches.
To demonstrate it, I made a trio of cards, all with a different length of Perfect Bracket Edge.
For this card, I die cut the actual edge of the card, which was 5 1/2" wide:
For this card, I die-cut a strip of paper and adhered it to the bottom of the white card base, which is 4 1/4 inches long.
For this one, I die-cut a strip of paper that was 3 1/2 inches long and used it along the bottom of my sentiment panel.
3 different looks, all from one edge die! Pretty nifty, huh?
Did you notice all my patterned paper flowers? Those were made with the new Perfect Petals Trio Die-namics die. They are a nice scalloped shape, with deeper petals, for easy curling and manipulating the petals. I like that!
Aren't the little characters so cute? You get 4 characters and elements to build a cute little Halloween scene. Fun stuff. :)
Well that's it for my teasers... now on to the details you have been waiting for:
