woohoo! MFT Teaser Time! It's to DIE-for!

Love this time of the month and so will you! The next 5 days are packed with lots of great new MFT products! Sit back and enjoy! Today we are sharing peeks to two new stamps following the great gardening theme that's been added to the boutique. I always love Stephanie Fizer's work and she has done it again with another FABulous flower set called How Your Garden Grows. There are new digi papers to coordinate AND an awesome new die-namics flower die! I can't get enough of these dies, all of them! For today's card I decided to make my own designer paper. There are lots of different flowers and sizes of flowers to work with along with some fun flower centers. You're gonna love it. See those felt flowers? Yep, created fast and easy with one run through of my big shot and the Flower Trio & Leaf Trio die-namics die. I added some coordinating buttons from the Earth Girl and Girly Button collections. I also used the fun, open scalloped scallop die and Framed Greetings die (currently sold out, sorry!). I also added a fun ribbon treatment with my FAVE perfect plaid ribbon in red!
I finished the card off inside with some more of the same flower and die-namics goodness! This is one of my all-time fave color combos-turquoise, red, and kraft!
I've also got another peek at the Clearly Sentimental about Gardens set. It was last month's triple scoop, and now it's available to purchase if you didn't earn it for FREE last month. I love it and it's a great compliment to many, many sets releasing this month and in the boutique already. As much as I loooove this stamp set, I'm really ga-ga over the dies I used on this card. EEEEE! it just makes me squeal. Can you count them?Most you should recognize, but 1 is brand new. Do you know which one? Okay, I can't stand it.....it's the tree and leaves! The tree is the same one from the awesome stamp set, Sheltering Tree. Now there is a die to match. No more cutting out that tree, and just in case you were thinking you have to have them both (why not? but.....) you don't. The tree works all by it's self. Can you see the details on the tree....the cool new thing about this die is that it embosses the woodgrain at the same time you are cutting it out! It's genius, I tell you, just genius! So, I used 4 different die-namics dies here-cloud trio, sunshine, fresh cut grass, and the new Sheltering Tree & leaf trio! I decided to add in a layer of the sweet new ruffled ribbon in yellow.
Of course I didn't stop at the outside, I had to add some flowers to the inside. These are from the new set, How Your Garden Grows. Oh, yeah, there's one more new die here, too! It's a new mini scallop-a staple for all stamping supplies! Yes, you may have a punch that does the same scallop, BUT your punch doesn't cut through felt, fabric, cork, acetate, and all the other materials you can cut with the die-namic dies! You've got to have these!
Don't forget about this month's Guest Designer Contest! You can read about it here. It's soooo worth playing along, the PRIZE is Fabulous! Can't wait to see what you all do for it.
All, right, I've had enough to say today. BUT I will leave you with one last piece of news. Be sure to read it-a PRIZE is involved. Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts.
