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! This is probably my favorite day of teasers, because I LOVE Die-namics and it is so fun to see the fabulous creations cooked up by my fabulous Design Teammates! I also have a bit of fun getting creative, too :)
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.
On to my project today showcasing the gorgeous Botanical Beauty Die-namics.
Now, this little project makes me happy and that is why I paper craft :) And share with all of you, of course! I started out with a shadowbox from 7 gypsies and had lots of fun with a bunch of Die-namics. I used the Botanical Beauty Die-namics to make flowers from paper, cardstock, and felt. The trio of smaller flowers were each made with three of the smallest flower Die-namics. I curled the petals with a paint brush handle and layered them with Jody boosters. The centers are the two smaller ones secured with a brad. I used a few Jody boosters layered together to pop these up on a stitched panel in each of the small sections.
I used My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White to make this beauty :) I cut one of each size of the flower from felt and one of each center from patterned paper. I added dimension to each layer with Jody boosters and finished it off with a button and a couple Leafy Flourish Die-namics.
To create my letters, I used the By the Letters Die-namics to cut two chipboard letters and one Chocolate Fudge cardstock letter. I used a brown marker to ink the edges of the chipboard letters and adhered the three layers of each letter together using liquid glass. To complete the largest section of the shadowbox, I layered and stitched a piece of Chocolate Fudge cardstock with patterned paper from Crate's Paper Heart collection. I used more liquid glass to adhere the letters and dotted the 'i' with a heart button. I used foam tape to adhere a border cut with the new Monarch Border Die-namics. The skinny horizontal panel was stitched together and wrapped with some Bubble Gum Pink pleated tulle ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel. This panel was popped up on a double layer of foam tape over the Monarch Border. I adhered the felt Botanical Beauty and flourishes.
Here is another look at all the lovely dimension. Happy to say how thrilled I am with this that I might make two more with the words "love" and "honor" to hang in our bedroom!! That was not my intention at all, but I think I would love to wake up to this! The finished size is just shy of 6-3/4" square.
Here is a peek at the Die-namics I used.
