Welcome to day seven of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!!!

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.
But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!
Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.
We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.
And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new? Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.

Since the first time I saw the Oval STAX Die-namics I wanted to use them to create a frame. Sooooo, what better time to give it a whirl than on Die-namics feature day! I cut the frame out of Hot Fudge card stock using the largest size of Oval STAX set 1 Die-namics, then I used the second largest size of Oval STAX set 2 to cut out the inner oval. I used corrugated card stock to fill the frame with a little texture.

The patterned papers are from the Teresa Collins Fabrications Canvas 8x8 designer pad. I love that there's a little purple in this collection. If I had my way, we'd have more purple in different collections from the paper manufacturers. All those in agreement, raise your hand! Ok...back to the card...I used Inspired by Butterflies Die-namics to cut out the yellow patterned butterfly and added some rhinestones to the body, which I coloured with my V09 copic marker. I really like how the Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics curves perfectly to fit along the edge of my frame.

I picked up some Wisteria felt recently and thought it would make the perfect flower accent, so I cut it out with the Royal Rose Die-namics. I added a few loops of hemp twine behind and added some delicious Grape Jelly ribbon to the base layer, which coordinates perfectly with the Grape Jelly card stock base layer.

On the inside I used the larger size of the Oval Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics to cut out the yellow patterned oval then stamped one of the sentiments from BIG Greetings. I used three layers of the Mini Monarch Border Die-namics to create the Grape Jelly card stock border.
