Like I said...today will blow your socks off, too. Here's what's in the line up: Jolinne - Always Wear a Smile, Sew Nifty, Claire Keay - Ahoy Matey.

Like the On the Move set...I'm sooo excited about the Sew Nifty set.  There's something about a stamp set with matching die-namics.  I've got two cards with that set today.  This first one fits this month's Guest Designer contest.....did you check it out?  You better...you don't have a chance at the awesome prize if you don't enter. The link to the details is up above. It's all about adding texture. I did that on this card with some MFT Felt, and wrapping my spool with some Twine. 
The sketch is from Jen's ASFYTT from last month. I loved that giant cirlce and it set the stage for my card elements. The felt heart was cut with the Hearts A Plenty die-namic.  I also love that you can add the spool detail with the matching stamp.
Then I did this card up in a more clean and simple style. I cut the card a little narrower than the standard A2, so I could have the doily die-namic hang off the edge a bit. This way it will still fit in an envie.

I used one of the new dizzy doily duos (the larger one on the outside and the smaller one on the inside for my sentiment) to show off all the die-namics. I wrapped the dress form die with some real fabric and tied it up with twine. Sitcking with the sewing theme of the set, the Button Quartet was a must use die-namic.  More twine dressed up those buttons.
Oh, and I almost forgot...the pretty little border sticking out from the flower paper is a new border...it's the solid bracket border and I really love the look of it. It's a nice change from scallops. Whip cream is my card base and the dress form is my fave, fossil!



Take a closer look at today's new die-namics I used:


That's all I've got today. Be sure to check out Kim's blog for a look at the full sets AND the list of bloggers today.  More teasers tomorrow.

I like your twine wrapped spool with the heart. Great sentiments in this new set, too. Your dress form card looks so neat. Love that little gathered ribbon trim. And the inside of the card is nice, as well. :)
