It's Teaser Time!

It is time for this month's My Favorite Things teasers to start, and I am DYING with excitement. I LOVE each release just a little bit more every month, don't you??!! Tonight, we have two gorgeous sets to show you: Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy, and By the Numbers. For my card, I chose to use the Sympathy set....but before we get there, here are some details about this month's goings on!!

Here are the details about the upcoming release on August 2 at 10 PM EST:

  • The MFT release is on August 2 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available August 2 at 10 PM EST.


  • The guest designer contest is ON! Check out the forum for details on how YOU can win over $100 in stamp sets and play along with the DT for a month.


  • If you'd like to see all the teasers for today, please click on over to Kim's blog NOW! Be sure to leave comments as you go for a chance to win one of 2 $10 vouchers being given away daily, just for leaving a comment. :) Check Kim's blog every day for the winners.

I started by stamping my sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy set, on a piece of GP White. I then used my Framed Greetings Die-namics to cut it out. I then used the soon to be released, new Fancy Flourish Die-namics to cut out my flourishes in Banana Split(MFT) and Going Gray(SU). My paper is from the Authentique Blissful pad. My ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel. My circle was cut out using the new, soon to be released, Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. The brads I used are from Michael's. For sympathy cards, I try to keep them pretty simple, but I prefer elegant...so this is where I ended up.


Well, that is it for me for today! I will be back later with this week's Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge.
Be sure to head to Kim's for a list of designers participating in today's teasers. Thanks for stopping by!
