MFTeaser - Die-namics Feature

Welcome back for day seven of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!! The release is just a few short hours away now, tonight at 10pm EST.

Today you'll see plenty of creative ways of using the new die-namics in this release.

For my card I decided to pair Pure Innocence Ice Princess with the All Star stamps and die-namics to create a feminine sporty card. The sentiment on the top of the card fit perfectly inside the banner from All Star stamps and die-namics...sweet!

Do you have a figure skater in your family? Then this trophy idea might be for you. I started by inking the feet of the Pure Innocence Ice Princess and cutting out the skates to use on top of the trophy stand from All Star die-namics. The oval open scallop doily die-namic cut from chocolate card stock was a perfect backdrop for the tropy, and I added light green rhinestones all the way around it for some sparkle. I also added the same rhinestones to bling up the trophy stand.

The "perfect score" banner was super fun to create and it just kept evolving as I went along. In the end I ended up creating faux epoxy letters...so FUN!! I started by cutting out the banners using the Mix & Match Banners die-namics, then I cut out the letters using the By the Letters die-namics. Next I coated the letters with Crystal Stickles and set them aside to dry. Once dry, I coated the letters with a thick layer of glossy accents and set them aside to dry again. Voilà...super sparkly and shiny faux epoxy letters!!

I used the full image of the skater on the inside along with another of the sentiments from the set.
