MFTeaser - Clearly Sentimental

Welcome back for day three of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers! Be sure to hop over to Kim's blog for a full list participating designers.

Today I have two cards to share that I made using the new Clearly Sentimental Pearls of Wisdom set, which is this month's Triple Scoop set.

What's the Triple Scoop you ask? Well, it's a full size stamp set that changes each month and it's yours FREE with a qualifying $60 order (before taxes and shipping). All you need to do is add the set to your cart and it'll arrive with the rest of your order.

The first card I'm sharing uses the Mojo214 sketch and patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Blush 6x6 pad. I used the new Fringed Perennial die-namic to create the gorgeous flower and I used the larger of the dizzy doily duo die-namics to cut out the circle element in the background.

The sentiments in Clearly Sentimental Pearls of Wisdom are so pretty, I couldn't resist creating a second card and the typewriter from Just My Type stamps and die-namics seemed like a perfect pairing to showcase the sentiment. The small flower accent was created by layering two of the 'centers' from the Fringed Perennial die-namics. The patterned papers on this card are from the Authentique Free Bird Nest pad.

I also created a quick and easy tag using the previous triple scoop set, Clearly Sentimental about Christmas, which will be available for purchase with this release! This is my sample for the Guest Designer Contest. The link is in the paragraph below, so be sure to check it out and play along for a chance to win a ton of MFT goodies and design alongside the team for the January release.

I used the following die-namics to create my tag: tag you're it, first place award ribbon, and by the numbers. The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly 6x6 pad.
