MFTeasers-Day Two!

Did you love the teasers you saw yesterday? I sure did, and it always amazes me how everyone's creations are sooooo different! I'm pretty sure you're going to be blown away again today with samples showing the newest sets from My Favorite Things.

I used Pretty Pocket stamp and die-namic set. For my pocket I cut out an actual piece of denim using the pocket die-namic and stitched around the edge. To make the stitching easier though I layered the denim pocket onto a cardstock pocket so it would have a little rigidity, then stitched them together.

This is another super versatile set with both masculine and feminine images so I can be pretty and sweet like my card, or handsome and fun for a boy's card. I paper pieced the larger flowers and coloured the smaller ones with copics. Then I added a clear rhinestone to the center of each and coloured it with a yellow copics.

Do you see that gorgeous leafy flourish under the flowers?!?!? Well that's the new leafy flourish die-namic...swoon!!!!!! And there's another new die hiding under the pocket...the ever-so-dainty open bracket border die-namic. The patterned papers are from October Afternoon's 5 & Dime collection and the layout is MFTWSC22 (told you I'd be using it again!).

Here's the inside...just as pretty as the front, IMHO. ;-)

And the dies I used:
