Boy, howdy! Does My Favorite Things ever have a wonderful release for you this month! Seriously, folks, this may just be one of the very best ever. There truly is something for everyone. It's said you can't please all of the people all of the time, but I think MFT may just be the exception to that well-known rule!
Today is the first day of Teasers for the big March release, and I'm showing off the SWEET STUFF set. SWEET STUFF is a new look for MFT, and I have to say, I *love* it! And not only because it features a zebra print background (we're the Claremore Zebras, don't you know). You know how that crazy bird goes koo-koo for Cocoa Puffs? Multiply that by 100, and that's how we Claremorons go for all things zebra.
Okay. Enough telling. How about I get to a little showing? Of course, I had to make my sample in Claremore Zebras' trademark red, black and white color scheme...
If I had to think of a phrase to describe SWEET STUFF, I'd say "elegance with attitude." It's just really, really cool. Lot's of fun, swishy sentiments combined with animal print backgrounds that go perfectly with the new LAYERED LABEL Die-Namic set (which comes with three separate dies). I'll show a graphic of the new Die-Namics I used in my sample in a bit. First, though, here's a look at the inside of my card...
I don't know if you can tell from the pics, but I heat embossed the zebra print and the sentiment on the front of my card. I <3 heat embossing soooo much; it's actually what converted me from a scrapbooker to a stamper. It's just... magical!
Have I ever mentioned that I'm a slooow stamper? Well, it's true. But this card took me less time than usual, and I have to say, I'm thrilled with the results. I'd like to take credit for that, but I think it's probably just the combination of a great stamp set and awesome sketch (this week's WSC Challenge sketch - go to this thread in our Member Company Forum to find the sketch and learn more about how to play along in this week's challenge).
There are SIX new Die-Namics being released this month, and I used two of them on my card: SWEET STACK and DIZZY BORDER. Here's a lookie-lou...
