Let's get things started here....I've got a lot to share. Tonight I am showing off the fabulous new CLEARLY SENTIMENTAL ABOUT ART.  If you didn't score it for FREE over the last month as a Triple Scoop promotion, now is your chance to pop it into your shopping cart. It is all about ART....but there are lots more uses for the wonderful sentiments. Let me show you.

 I mixed and matched it up with a whole slew of Die-namics and used the same paper pack on all of my projects for today-Summertime by Simple Stories. 




First up....my favorite saying.... You paint my heart happy. I made another scrappy card, can't help myself with these papers.




 I cut a bunch of the new HEXAGONS and created my own background paper. So much fun to do. I stitched around the edges and added a decorative edge along the left side with the NOTCHED BORDER DIE-NAMICS. 

I then cut a few different sized tags with the awesome TRADITIONAL TAG STAX DIE-NAMICS......swoon....I ♥ these tags.  I cut one from recycled cardboard and spritzed it with Mister Huey's Calico White paint. I cut a smaller tag from the Summertime paper and stamped my sentiment. I love how it looks like a postcard. 


Of course I couldn't resist adding a sweet little heart from the HOMESPUN BIRDHOUSE DIE-NAMICS.  A fun button and some twine for added cuteness!



While I still had  the new TRADITIONAL TAG STAX DIE-NAMICS out, I decided I needed to make a sweet tag with another CS about Art sentiment.  I used the largest one and cut a tag from soft suede cardstock and then ran it through my Vagabond with an old cuttlebug embossing folder. 

 Some good advice this one is....Add a Splash of Color Every Day....I thought a custom VANITY LICENSE PLATE wih the word HAPPY would make a great accent for the tag. I added a rainbow of ink colors to the word Happy. 

The floral square panels were cut from the new SQUARE STAX 1 & 2 DIE-NAMICS and then I stitched around the edges and distressed the edges with my finger nail.  It was finished off with a bashful blue NOTCHED BORDER DIE-NAMICS
\

I cut a smaller tag from newsprint paper and took the time to mask my sentiment, so I could make it fit on the TRADITIONAL TAG STAX. A pretty wooden button and some brown hemp twine, tie it all together. 


I had one more sentiment from the CLEARLY SENTIMENTAL ABOUT ART stamp set that I wanted to use.....always show your true colors. I picked more patterns from the same Summertime pack.

My mojo really starts flowing when I use similar papers and colors on different project. It's also a time saver, since I don't have to pick up between each project. PLUS you end up with a nice coordinated gift set if you choose to package it all together.

I made this card to show off the gorgeous new HIBISCUS DIE-NAMICS

 I used the largest DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS for my *frame*.  I ran it through my  Vagabond with a woodgrain impression plate. I love how it looks against the bright chevrons in the background. 


I layered up the Hibiscus with two different flowers, placing a foam dot between the flowers. I cut extra of the leaves....LOVE those. The embossing detail on both the petals and the leaves are awesome! I finished off the flowers with tiny red rhinestones. The red grosgrain ribbon is wild cherry that MFT carries. Love it!


I knew the soft suede was going to be too dark to stamp my sentiment on, so I ran the DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX through, one more time with fossil cs and trimmed it to the size I wanted, adding some contrast to my frame. I made it pop even more by adding a PINKING EDGE DIE-NAMICS to the bottom of it. 

After I finished the card, I decided to finish off the inside. I love how the sentiment from this month's TRIPLE SCOOP PROMOTION-COMPLIMENTARY GREETINGS helped make this card extra special. I felt like the two sentiments together, really make a statement. 


I stamped the sentiment onto some gumdrop green cardstock, cut with a smaller DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS.  I had the second half of the PINKING EDGE left over, so I added that on the inside, too. 



Thanks so much for another GREAT week of teasers. I love the share what I create and having you all leave so much love and encouragement sure makes it all worth it. Thank-you!

Kim's Blog has the line up for tonight's New Product Tour! Enjoy the hop and good luck....you just might be the lucky winner!

Here is another look at the Die-namics I used on tonight's projects! They are all fabulous, you won't be disappointed with any of them.
