Teacher Gift Time

Hi all!  It's Day 5 (of 5) of MFT Teaser Time!  The release is TONIGHT!  YAY!  I'll see you back here at 10 PM EST. 

Today, we are previewing 2 new stamp sets and I have a card using each one.
  • Teacher's Pet (which is very fitting for my girls, who are both teacher's pets) ;)
  • Clearly Sentimental about Teaching
I am SO happy with the timing of this stamp set release.  I always struggle to get teacher gifts stamped during the holidays, but with new stamps, I was definitely enticed to get er' done.  LOL

My first card uses the set, Clearly Sentimental about Teaching, and FOUR Die-namics dies.  Check out the Decorative Doily!  It is awesome.  You can now make custom doilies in any color and a variety of materials.  This is nice and BIG (4 inches) and very decorative.  With doilies so trendy right now, this die is a MUST HAVE.  Peeking out behind the main panel, you can see the matching border, Faux Crochet.  It is SO cute and coordinates perfectly with the Decorative Doily.  The sentiment was stamped and stitched on.  This is a pretty simple card to make.  Just lots of layers and lots of fun die cuts.

Rolled Rose Die-namics Die + felt = LOVE

Look at the beautiful Decorative Doily pattern.  SWEET!

Beautiful, coordinating, Faux Crochet Border die.  The patterns match.  Isn't that COOL?

Here are all the dies I used on this card:

 Polka Dot Greetings
 Rolled Rose
My next card uses the new Who's That Girl stamp set, Teacher's Pet.  

Here, I used 2 of the 5 pieces you die-cut when using the Stacking Stars Die-namics die.

I stamped several of the sentiments that come with the set on lined paper patterned paper, as if it was a letter to the teacher.  On the left-hand side edge of the paper, I used the notebook edge die, and then wrinkled it up to look more realistic.

Here is a peek inside using another of the sentiment included in the set, and an accessory image also included.

Here are the dies I used on this card:
