It’s day 4 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 7th February.
Today the Design Team are featuring the three sets that will be released, these are “Vertical Greetings Die-namic & Stamp set”; “Ring Me Die-namic & Stamp set” and “Finishing Flourishes Stamp set”.
For my first card today I used the Vertical Greetings Die-namic & Stamp set, I love being able to use sentiments that go in the opposite direction to normal! If you are wondering how I layered the black panel behind the greeting, it is so simple. Just die cut another vertical greeting from black card and then cut this in half, this is then adhered at the back on the top and bottom of the main panel so you have a little showing. Then just cut a rectangle from black card to fit the centre portion.
I decided to create another Double Dutch Fold card if you haven’t made one of these before you can find a tutorial in the resources section of Splitcoast Stampers. I also added some Charcoal Twine to the top portion of my card.
Here you can see the inside of my card with the top portion of the front of my card lifted up.
And here you can see my card fully open. I have used another stamp from the Vertical Greetings Die-namics and Stamp set.
After I had finished my first card you saw at the top of my post, the sketch for a recent Clean and Simple sketch challenge (FTL174) came up on my Google Reader. I thought it was the perfect sketch for the Vertical Greetings Die-namics and Stamp set so I had to make another card . This time round I added a flourish from the Finishing Flourishes stamp set also being released on Tuesday.
Here is the inside of my card. The sentiment and flourish used on the inside are also from the Finishing Flourishes stamp set. I also added a border along the designer paper which was cut using the Die-namics Monarch Border also being released on Tuesday 7th February.Here are the details about the upcoming release on February 7th at 10 PM EST:
