MFT Teaser Day 4!

Hey everyone and welcome to day 4 of 7 of MFT Teasers! Wowza, what an amazing release AGAIN this month, right?! I have been enjoying seeing all the wonderful ways the MFT design team has incorporated the new stamp sets and dies in their projects, and I hope you have too!

Today we are featuring 2 new stamp sets: Homespun Birdhouse (featuring the new Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics set) and First Class Friend (Featuring a new postage frame Die-namics set.)

For my first project, I created this FUN card using the new Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics and stamp set, First Award Ribbon Die-namics, Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics and the new Branch with Leaves Die-namics... aren't the little birds ADORABLE?! (Die-namics are pictured/linked below) The papers are by My Minds Eye 6x6...






For my project, I created a card using the new First Class Friend Die-namics and stamp set and more paper from My Minds Eye...


Do you spy the new beautiful and dimensional Prima Donna Petals flower? The die-set will be available on the September 6th release.


The First Class Friend stamp set comes with a number of sentiments and images, the possibilities are endless! I incorporated a bunch of MFT Die-namics on this card as well... Fancy Flourish, Dizzy Doily, Dizzy Doily Duo, First Class Friend postage frame, Prima Donna Petals...



I also used the Scallop Ribbon Die-namics and large fishtail banner from the First Award Ribbon Die-namics set...
