Today's sets are called:

Vertical Greetings, Ring Me, Finishing Flourishes.  There is some serious eye-candy today!


I have been so excited to share this first card with you.  I just think this phone Die-namics is too cool and really cute. It's called, RING ME. It’s a large size, making one BOLD statement.  
 I went with a touch of vintage using these Echo Park papers. 
 There are two cord stamps included in this set, BUT I purchased this cool wire silver cord around Christmas time  (I also got it in red from the Ribbon Carousel) and I had yet to use it.  I decided to coil it up and attach it to the phone and I think it looks sooo cool!

It was easy to do. Use a pencil and wrap it around until you have your desired length of cord. I used some Scor-tape to attach the cord to the back of  handset and the base of the phone. 
My card needed a little something else, so I also tucked in an Open Scallop doily Die-namis. 

Then there’s the inside and I think I love it just as much beacuase of THIS flower!!! I cut out 4 layers in two different sizes of pages from the phonebook with the new AWESOME BONTANICAL BEAUTY DIE-NAMICS.  Then I cut a black circle from cardstock and pierced it all with a big silver brad.


Here's the full look at how I did up the inside.  I added some of that stamped cord image to the bottom of this panel and finished the card off with this cute sentiment.

 This next set, I am over the moon about, too! I think this is my favorite teaser day....for THIS set alone!!! I loooove, yes LOVE, this new VERTICAL GREETING DIE-NAMICS......AND the quotes that come with it are sooooo inspirational and powerful.

I added lots of texture to this card with the burlap ribbon, stitching, and impressed polka dots and woodgrain details.  I even tucked in a strip of SIMPLY SCALLOPS. Here's a close up of the quote panel. 


I felt I needed to add one more element to the card to complete the look, so I only cut 1 of the layers from the gorgeous new BOTANICAL BEAUTY DIE-NAMICS.  This flower looks great, layered or single....dontcha think?!  Instead of the die cut centers, I opted for a button and some twine. 


Kim's Blog has the Teaser Line Up....Hop on over there to see who's showing off the goods today.


Here is a closer look at these FABULOUS new Die-namics!
