This week of teasers begins with LOTS of eye candy....we've got three new sets we are debuting today: Fairy Dust; Primitive Pumpkins; Distressed Diamonds.  

For my cards today I thought I would focus on two of these sets. The Primitive Pumpkins and Distressed Diamonds....they work so well together. 

First up let me show you how cool these pumpkins are, and not to mention CUTE! I made a little  fall scene with  the stamps and a cluster of Die-namics. First to point out, I love that the Primative Pumpkins has matching pumpkin dies. I used all three sizes on this card. 


Then the stamp set is chuck full of beautiful detailed stamps so you can create many different looks. I used a selection of the stars to make a tone on tone background on the CIRCLE STAX 1 & 2 layer in the background. I can't decide if the polka dotted or woodgrain star is my fave?! 

That fence is new, too. It's the PICKET FENCE Die-namics and it's just cute as can be.  Check out the little dotted embossing detail. Like a lot of the Die-namics, it embosses and cuts all in one pass. 


I finished my little pumpkin patch with a layer of FRESH CUT GRASS and then added the sentiment to a FISHTAIL FLAGS STAX  cut from Sno Cone card stock.  Speaking of MFT card stock, you'll notice I used a new-to-me color, the Tangy Orange. There is also a bit of Kraft and Whip cream, can't make a card with out those two colors it seems ;) A little Tangy Orange button and the new twine MFT is carrying complete the details on this card. 

Up next I mixed some of the DISTRESSED DIAMOND  stamps with the PRIMITIVE PUMPKIN  set. Yep, a match made in heaven. I think you'll be just as excited about this new background set, as I am. So many uses. 

I went a bit more clean and simple by not adding so many layers, and then created this scrappy,  graphic card. 

The giant star was cut from the STAR STAX Die-namics and then I stamped the whole thing with the mid-sized DISTRESSED DIAMONDS.  I love the effect stamping  onto pattern paper. I made sure to pick a paper (by Basic Grey) with a smaller, subtle pattern so my diamonds would really stand out. 

I also used another DISTRESSED DIAMOND along the bottom, stamped in grey. I am soooo excited to let you in on a new color, MFT is going to be carrying in their Replenishment line....yep, buttons, ribbon, card stock, and felt. This month Kim is releasing, STEEL GREY! and I am in.love. ♥♥♥ 

Look at that button! AND....the twine is new to the MFT Boutique, as well. Make sure you pop a spool of the Hemp Cord into your cart when you order. It's lovely!

The rest of the stamps I used on this card are from the PRIMITIVE PUMPKIN stamp set. This time I used only 1 pumpkin and stamped one of the greetings right onto it. 

Here's a close up of some of the stamp detail. 



Head on over to Kim's Blog for all the Teaser Time Details!
