Day 2 of June MFT Teaser Time

Hello again.  So glad you are back for day two of the My Favorite Things Teasers.  There is so much more to see. I hope you’ll be back each day to see how I put some of the new product to use.  The June release by MFT is next Tuesday night, June 11 at 10p

Today I have a card using the NEW Trendy Triangles stamp set. I also put the matching Die-namics, Triangle Die-namcis, to work.  As soon as I saw this stamp set, the first thing I saw was a Christmas Tree. So for probably one of the first times in a long time…..I’m getting a jump on my holiday cards.


 I cut 4 of the large Triangles out of Natural cs and then used all the colors of green ink MFT sells-Jellybean Green, Factory Green, Sour Apple, and gumdrop green to add all the fun prints to my triangles.  I sponged on Sour Apple ink around the edges and then attached them to my card base with foam pop dots.

I added a gorgeous Paver Red button to the tree top. The tree trunk was cut from Hot Fudge cs using the Barbed Wire Fence Die-namics. I wanted a woodgrain print embossed into the trunk, so this Die-namics was a great pick.


I completed  my winter scene by cutting some Sno Drifts in Smooth White cs. I sponged the edges with Berrylicious ink, and then added some Rock Candy Distress glitter. The sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and I stamped it in Hot Fudge ink. 

I finished off the inside by stamping the smaller Trendy Triangles on the inside to make a smaller tree. 

Here is a closer look. I added one more holiday sentiment , this time I used Clearly Sentimental about Christmas 


There are so many more cool things you can do with these triangle. Hop on over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the DT has to show off today.
