MFTeasers: Day One!


Hi there and welcome to the first day of teasers from My Favorite Things!  We have a fantastic release next Tuesday so I hope you're able to tune in to each day of teasers!

Today we're introducing Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy and By the Numbers Die-namics and Stamp set.  I have a sample using the new By the Numbers Die-namics and Stamp set.



Oh, how I love this new set!   I made this card for my daughter's friend, Brieana, for her 13th birthday.  Brieana had a slumber party at a HOTEL.   That's right, a HOTEL.  Apparently it's the cool thing to do when you turn 13 around these parts......I told my daughter not to get her hopes up:)

I used some new MME Lost and Found Madison Avenue papers for my card.  Oh, and see that large tag?  L.O.V.E.  It's another new die-namic called Tag You're It (it also comes with a coordinating stamp set....but more on that in a few days).   I really wanted the numbers to stand out so I used a brighter pattern from the same MME pad.  It was layered on another new Die-namics die from this release, the Open Scallop Doily Duo (this is the larger of the two) cut from Fossil cardstock.  I added a few scalloped layers cut with the Simply Scallops Large die.  I finished it off with some lace trim, adhesive gems, a button tied with twine and some machine stitching.
