Introducing DIE-NAMICS!!!

So, unless you were one of the lucky 50 people to order this month's VIP package from My Favorite Things, you are going to be so surprised to see what MFT has in their store now!! Starting May 5th, MFT will be selling their very own set of dies called Die-namics!!

I don't know about you, but we at MFT are SUPER excited!! This month, we are releasing three dies:

MFT Die-namics Clouds (element die) (one die, with three different sized clouds on it)
Small – 1.25” wide and .70” tall
Medium – 1.89” wide and 1.06” tall
Large – 2.51” wide and 1.41” tall

MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallops (Edge die)
6” long, with each scallop measuring 1.5”

MFT Die-namics Scalloped Scallops (Edge die)
6” long, with each scallop measuring 1.5”

AWESOME, right??

For my card today, I started by stamping my Pure Innocence, Boy with Dog(Dog Gone Cute), on an MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored it with my Copics. I cut it, and it's layer out with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. My card stock is Hot Fudge(MFT), Celery and Brocade Blue. My DP is from the DCWV Latte stack. Both sentiments, inside and out, are from the Clearly Sentimental about Emerson set. My sketch is this past Monday's Mojo sketch, as well.

So, wanna know more about Die-namics? Well here is how I used MINE to create my super cute scalloped edge!! I own a Cuttlebug, so I used it with this die. I used the same sandwich I used for my Nesties(from bottom up):
A Plate
C Plate
die cutting edge up
B Plate

Here are a couple of tricks I learned along the way:
1. This die is long which makes it awesome for doing edges, but it will only fit in the cuttlebug going verticle, not horizontal.
2. I used a piece of double stick tape to hold the die in place so that it wouldn't move. Since it is skinny, this is super important!!

Other than that, it was SUPER simple, and AWESOME to use!!
Well, that is it for me for today!! Be sure to head to Kim's Blog to see who else has peeks of these AMAZING new dies for you to see!!
