Die-namics Feature - Cards Galore!

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.

But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!

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 made about a zillion cards for today's post, so settle in... (please)

First up, I combined 5 different Die-namics (including two new releases - Hexagons and Traditional Tags) and this month's Triple Scoop Set, Complimentary Greetings, to come up with this scrappy creation.  

I cut apart a sentiment and stamped the two lines separately.  Then, I trimmed them and laid them "crazy style" over my strips of hexagons.  

I cut one of the smaller Traditional Tags out of newsprint patterned paper.  Then I adhered a gingham heart (from Hearts a Plenty) on it and pulled the whole thing together with a wooden button (which I am currently obsessed with), attached with SU Linen Thread.

I created a wordless banner with the Fishtail Banner and used the heart from Notched Tag to embellish each one.  I added eyelets and then strung SU Linen Thread through them.  I curled the ends using my Hotfix tool (I wrap the thread around it and hold - similarly to how you would curl your hair).  The hexagons were cut out of tons of different patterns from the paper pad I was using and I arranged them in a way that was visually pleasing (to me anyway... LOL).

I wanted to try my hand at a clean and simple card with the Hexagons Die-namics.  I arranged them in a simple pattern, substituting one of the "open" spots with a wooden button.  I stamped a single fourths in the lower, right hand corner from the Finishing Flourishes stamp set and included a sentiment from the set, stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black, in the upper right-hand corner.

I combined Masculine Graphic Tee with the Peace Signs Die-namics to create this card.  Confession: as I was making it, I kept saying, "Peace Bro" in a totally surfer dude accent.  Try it. It's fun.  *giggle*  I paper-pierced around the perimeter of the peace sign to add a little extra oomph.  

I just love the embossed detail lines.  Bro is stamped in SU Chocolate Chip Craft ink.

There is a little Fishtail Flag sticking out there.  I added a row of 3 yellow brads to fill in the empty space a bit.  You can also see the Notched Border to the left of the card.  I think it lends itself very well to masculine cards.

Here are some more ideas for the Masculine Graphic Tee:

For the next many cards I used the soon-to-be-released Vanity License Plate Die-namics and Stamp Set.  This is one of my favorite products from MFT, ever.  I just LOVE that I can make quick, cute cards for ANY occasion.  I have FOUR cards to share with you, all made from the same patterned paper pack from Basic Grey, What's Up?  

First up I have a card for a SWTGRL (Sweet Girl).  

I added the smaller tag from Traditional Tags STAX and accented it with a tiny flower from Notched Tag.

This card is a for a FRIEND.  I used map-themed paper, which would be fitting for a far-away friend  I mimicked the License Plate throughout the card by the rounding the corners of each layer.  

I accented the card with a Botanical Beauty cut from different prints from the patterned paper pack.

I had grand plans for "CLOUD9".  I can't say it came out exactly as I envisioned it but I like the pairing with the hot air balloons patterned paper and tiny cloud from You Move Me Die-namics.  I added the Notched Border in black.

For the last card I couldn't bring myself to cover up the gorgeous patterned paper.  LOL  I added a strip of blue patterned paper to break up the pattern a bit and then added my License Plate.  I added a tiny hang tag with a heart from Notched Tag.  After a little stitching, this card was done... in record time.  LOL  Sometimes, less is more.  

Here is the amazing Vanity License Plate Die-namics & Stamp Set I used.  I just looooove it.

The Vanity License Plate is available separately, but I would recommend buying the whole kit and caboodle above.
