MFT Teasers Day 4 - Vertical Greetings & Ring Me

Hello!!  Welcome to Day 4 of teasers for the My Favorite Things February release. Today the design team is featuring Vertical Greetings Die-namics & Stamp Set, Ring Me Die-namics & Stamp Set, and Finishing Flourishes.  I have two cards to share today.  The first one uses Vertical Greetings & Finishing Flourishes.  The new Up, Up, & Away Die-namics which you saw teased on Day 2 also makes an appearance with the previously released Inspired by Up, Up, & Away stamp set.


I thought this sentiment coordinated very well with those gorgeous hot air balloons.  And let me tell you the Up, Up, & Away Die-namics are awesome!!  I had no problem at all lining up to stamp on my die cut - perfect fit!!  One of the flourishes from Finishing Flourishes is stamped in second generation Grey Wool ink (CTMH) above the sentiment for a little interest and to fill that space.  The sentiment from Vertical Greetings is stamped on the coordinating Vertical Greetings Die-namics, that will also be available for stand alone purchase.  I hand cut a mat for it by tracing the die on some Kraft paper.  You can also shorten this Die-namics by using Joanne's Tab Trick tip :)  The layout for this card is this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch, MFTWSC57.  Here is the inside of the card.


The hot air balloons are stamped in second generation Cranberry and Pacifica inks (CTMH) to give a behind the clouds kind of look.  Incidentally, this cloud paper is from Cosmo Cricket and I have been hoarding it for about 5 years - lol!!  I have just 1 12x12 sheet left and scraps!  So proud that I put it to use here :)  Here are the Die-namics I used for this card.



On to my next card with a retro kind of look featuring the Ring Me Die-namics & Stamp Set.  This pair is so fun, & I am excited to see what the rest of the team has done with it!!  Here is my first card using it.


How awesome is that phone!!!  Brings back lots of childhood memories of the rotary phone that was in our house until my parents moved out!!!  Look at the embossed detail!  I added a cord using wired string from The Ribbon Carousel, but there is also a cord image included in the stamp set.  The graph paper is just plain old graph paper which I backed with cardstock so it wouldn't be so flimsy (and see through).  The layout for this card is one of Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketches, SSSC150.


And the inside.  This time I backed the graph paper with some of the polka dot pattern paper.


Here are the die-namics I used for this card.
