The two sets are called: Clearly Sentimental about Romance, and Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls of Wisdom was last month's Triple Scoop set (that means you got it for FREE with a $60 purchase) and this month you'll get the CS about Romance.  You'll want it, trust me! And if you missed out on the promo set last month, then be sure to add it to your cart this go round.

I've got a sample from each and they show off some of the new die-namics!


Let's jump in with the newest set, CS about Romance.  YOU will fall in love with the beautiful sentiments included in the stamp set. I did.  This one is one of my FAVES.  I'm tucking this card away for hubby for V-day! 

Not only do I loooove the quote, I also am sooooo happy to have this HUGE Layered Heart. It is such a great focal point for any image.  I cut the solid larger image out of red felt and then chose a coordinating pattern from the My Mind's Eye pack to cut out the smaller, detailed heart.

Those little  holes were begging for some twine, so I quickly stitched it up with twine and then added some Scor-tape to adhere it to the felt. Here's a few close ups to show how I did it.



TIP: Using a craft needle, helps the stitching come along quickly. Trust, me, use the needle. While the holes are large enough to thread the twine through by hand, the needle really helps speed the process.


I further accented the sentiment by stamping it on the CLEARLY SENTIMENTAL LABEL, and added a few fun buttons (by My Mind' Eye) and some distressing (I'm still using the Tim Holtz Holiday distress inks....love the berry red included in the trio).

Next up, I went with the pretty blue and grey combo from the October Afternoon, Farmhouse papers. I cut the card base to a 4.25inch square, allowing for some extra room at the top for the new layered OVAL DECORATIVE DOILY DUO DIE-NAMIC.   These are the two newest sizes to round out your oval collection in this style.  They are always perfect for housing any sentiment.
I added a new SCALLOP ROLLED FLOWER and some LEAFY FLOURISHES (love those, always love those).


You should spy one more new die-namic on this card.....I just think it's so fun. It's the PAPER DOLL BORDER.  I thought it was a cute accent to add with the quote reminding us how to live life.

Hop on over to Kim' s Blog.....the teaser line up and full peeks at the new sets are up! See you back here tomorrow for more MFT TEASERS.



BUT.....before you go.....here's a look at the new die-namics along with the ones you can already find in the boutique.
