MFT Teasers....day 5

So, how long is your list??? Long and big, I'm sure.  Well, I hate to say it (who am I kidding...no I'm not. LOL!) but your list is about to get longer.  We still have a few more days left to tempt and tease you with. Today is our à la mode day. I love them!
Here are the details about the upcoming release on September 6 at 10 PM EST:

  • The MFT release is on September 6 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available September 6 at 10 PM EST.
  • The guest designer contest is ON! Check out the forum for details on how YOU can win over $100 in stamp sets and play along with the DT for a month.
  • If you'd like to see all the teasers for today, please click on over to Kim's blog NOW! Be sure to leave comments as you go for a chance to win one of 2 $10 vouchers being given away daily, just for leaving a comment. :) Starting this month, you’ll have all week to comment on each of the posts – all the winners will be posted on Tuesday, September 6th around 7:30pm.  Be sure to check the MFT Blog to see if perhaps YOU were one of our lucky FOURTEEN winners! Remember to leave a method of contact in your comments, because if you’re selected as a prize winner, but we can’t reach you, then we can’t get you your prize! .
Don't you love that we are stretching out the teaser post days a bit. It gives each of the new sets an extra bit of time to let them shine before release day.  I love that these gals have a day all to themselves! This month the two à la modes are called: Blue Without You, and Talk Nerdy to Me. I've got one of each to show off today. First up, my blue card.  I just had to reach for my beautiful Authentique blue paper pad.
A simple layout, but I really wanted to who off the sweet, saluting girl. I thought the dog tag die-namic was a perfect fit for this hero card.




 I cut a piece of saraha sand cardstock and then used the direct to paper technique with my silver encore ink pad....I dig the metallic look it gives the tag. I stamped the sentiment right on top. I tied it up with some stone twine. Check out that twine.....YES!!! new colors of twine are in stock. Be sure to add 1 or 4 to your cart on Tuesday night.
Then I carried over some of the same design elements to the inside of my card, and used another sentiment. I added a row of the star border die-namic.

Moving on the the nerdy set (yes, I admit, I'm a bit of a nerdy gerdy at times....aren't we all? LOL!). I don't know what it is about this set, but I just adore it!  I think it might have something to do with my obsession with office supplies and lined/ledger paper (this is new from SU). Whenever I get a chance I use it and I'm always drawn to it. I think the notebook edge die-namic is one of my most LOVED dies.
I was inspired by this past week's WSC sketch. I used the twine (here in lilac) the same way I did with my sample. I love that twine adds texture and pretty bows without all the bulk of a ribbon.  I did the sentiment up on the new ticket tab (I've also been playing with my neglected ticket corner punch-how fun! I missed that one) and also used the pretty Prima Donna Petals again.




Hope you enjoyed todays peeks.  More to come tomorrow.
