I've got teasers lined up every day between now and the release - sweet huh? What can I say.....I've been busy. Are you ready to get started?

My first teaser is for Well Worn Greetings. I've paired the stamp set with the coordinating Die-namics die - the Well Worn Label. Check out the fabulous denim texture in this stamp set. I inked it with my Bordering Blue ink pad, and stamped to white paper, then ran the piece through my Cuttlebug with the middle sized label in this three piece Die-namic set.


I adore the font style in this stamp set and you will be amazed at how many sentiments are included in this fabulous set! I stamped in the oval frame, and inked the sentiment with a Dew Drop sized pad, so that I could use the tip to ink all the words, and then inked the little heart with red ink last.

Here's a close look at the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Label.



This is my sample for this month's Guest Designer Challenge. Honestly girls, this is YOUR chance to win over $100 in product from our June release and join the Design Team in daily previews. You'll find all the details from the challenge hostesses in the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers and you'll need to have your entry in by Monday at 10pm EST.

I have LOTS more samples to share with you today because I adore this stamp set and Die-namics Dies! Are you ready for another one?

Up next, I was still playing with the assignment "Blue Jeans and Bling" for the guest designer challenge.

Remember, you can interpret the challenge any number of ways. How about real jeans? I've cut the jean scrap with my Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Labels. The roughed up oval was stamped with black ink, and I very carefully inked up the sentiment using Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink for the "priceless" and just the tiny tip of my Tuxedo Black Memento ink for the "you're" Now, want a close look at the bling part?


See my Pretty Posie Die-namic? Want a fun tip? MFT is now selling this amazing microfine glitter. I used my Xyron to coat a piece of paper with adhesive, then I covered the panel with the microfine glitter. Then used my Pretty Posies Die-namic die to cut the flower. The amazing thing, this glitter is SO smooth such even coverage, that it is stampable. That's right, I stamped the gingham pattern from Well Worn Greetings right on top of the glitter. Its a pretty cool effect....

I've also added two small glitter stripes across the pattern paper. Simply place a line of Scor Tape across your pattern paper, then apply the microfine glitter, and bang, just a touch of shine. And trust me, the glitter holds in place. No errant glitter all over your project.

Want to do it again? I have MORE samples. Lots more today....

AND because I {heart} this Die-namics set, how about ANOTHER preview with a totally different look?

It certainly is amazing that this Die-set has a stamp set that it works perfectly with, but I also love that all the Die-namics can be mixy-matched for so much versatility in your "collection"

I've paired More Essential Sentiments, along with the flourish from Own Your Story and the fabulous new Die-namics Die Scalloped Ribbon and lots and lots of Distress Ink.

I started with stamping that flourish in an olive colored ink, I actually cut the sentiment apart into two pieces so that I could line up Happy Birthday on two lines. (don't be afraid to do that.... you can easily line them back up in a single line on the clear block!)


I criss-cross threaded the buttons and added them with a Jody Booster to my project. Then I just pulled the tails of the twine behind and secured to my card front with tape.

Do you spy this fabulous new Die-namic? Its the Scalloped Ribbon Die-namic. I used Ivory Cardstock for a natural ribbon feel, and then added a little twine bow on top.


Okay, shall we do it again?

I'm in the midst of getting cards ready for Teacher Appreciation Week next week... and I saw this paper at my LSS a few weeks ago and picked it up for JUST this purpose. I mixed it into the stamps from Well Worn Greetings. Yes, this is the same sentiment as in the first sample, I can't help it, I LOVE this one.

I pulled out my Cork from MFT, I don't use it often enough, so I went on a little binge with it the other night. You'll be seeing it in a bunch of projects !

For this sample, I reached for the scalloped frame. Fab-u-lous! The layout is nice and simple, but you get the point, you can use this stamp set for a TON of things.


Want to see another one?

I was feeling a little guilty about using the same sentiment twice, even though I really NEEDED it twice. So, I thought I'd crank up another sample for you. This little sentiment reads "No matter where you go, there I am." What a great message.


I've paired it with paper from Lily Bee "This and That" - and yes, here's a bit of cork again. My simply scallops layer is cut from this pretty black brocade paper with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namic and then stitched in place.

See, I love anything that you can get extra duty out of! Hope you liked this Die-namics set done a whole bunch of ways today! And hopefully it gets you looking at mixing up your supplies and using them a new way too!

I'll see you tomorrow with another preview!
