But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!
Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.
We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.
And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new? Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.
I've made 2 different cards for today's Die-namics Focus, using 2 very different styles. I am SUPER excited about the new floral Die-namics die that is being released on December 6th at 10 PM EST, Fringed Perennial. This die is a "cousin" of the Prima Donna Petals Die-namics die. It contains tabs that when adhered, provide lots of dimension and life to the flower.
On my card, I've created three Fringed Perennial flowers, each "double stacked" with plenty of fringe in the center. What can I say? More is more. :) The sentiment is from the Triple Scoop Set, Pearls of Wisdom, which you can earn FREE with a $60 purchase.
I made each flower monochromatic and added a 5 mm Swarovski crystal to the center of each one.
The sentiment is stamped on the middle layer of the Layered Label Die-namics die, and then trimmed in half. I added plenty of bling to this card to add some pizazz.
I finished off the inside of the card with another gorgeous sentiment from the stamp set.
Here is a look at the Fringed Perennial Die-namics die:
I made a VIDEO showing how to construct a Fringed Perennial Flower. You can view it HERE, or click the play button in the embedded video below.
I also re-visited the ALL-STAR Die-namics and Stamp Set. I wanted to make a card for my son, for his end-of-the-year football banquet that is coming up. He had a GREAT year and this masculine card should be even teen-approved. :)
The football comes complete with stitching detail and I added the stamped stitches as well. It is perched on top of the trophy Die-namics and I added the ALL-STAR name plate to the trophy base using the tiny Die-namics die. The banner is also part of the die set. I stamped the banner, cut it out with the die, then stamped the sentiment on it.
Here is a peek inside the card. I finished it off with some more sentiments from the set, and another die-cut football.
