Do you know someone who would love to see their name in lights? I think we have the solution! The Bright Lights Alphabet Die-namics set simulates the look of marquee letters.

Our Four Corners Die-namics includes four ornate corner pieces ready to pretty up your cards, photos, and projects. Who says they’re just for corners though? Cut a single die cut to use as an ornate layering element or cut multiples of the same image to create a beautiful and textural pattern.

Anchors aweigh! Our Let’s Get Nautical Die-namics is the ideal starting point for a nautically inclined card. Use the large circle die to create the perfectly sized card-front window to frame with the porthole element. Our Go Overboard stamps are designed to complement this die set and many images are a perfect fit for the window. The holes detail in the porthole element provides a fantastic embellishment opportunity – add gems, brads, or back with contrasting card stock. The life preserver includes emboss lines as a subtle detail but also provides guidance for perfect placement of the optional bands. The anchor can be used as interactive charm element that adds movement to the card.

Print

Navigate your way over HERE to see how to make some waves with the Let’s Get Nautical Die-namics, or, simply play the video below.

The Go Overboard stamps coordinate with the Let’s Get Nautical Die-namics for shipshape cards even the staunchest landlubber will flip for. Like a ship nestled safely in harbor, this collection of sentiments will promote comfort and calm. The coordinating images will add a nautical flair creating sea-worthy designs for a variety of occasions. Use the rope border to create a frame for photos or card panels and steer your way to the finish line with the included compass and captain’s wheel.

Print

Watercolor Backdrops will create a gorgeous and dreamy base for stamped images and sentiments without the mess, extra tools, and requisite dry time. Get the ethereal look of watercolor paint by keeping it simple with a single stamped image, or, by layering multiple images for colors that blend and merge in a stunning haze.

Print

Our Waves stencil is the perfect choice for creating a watery background for some of the fun nautical products we have this release. Soft texture can be achieved by using the stencil for embossing. Or, consider using this stencil to make a rolling scalloped edge.

Print

These 4×6″ adhesive sheets are sized perfectly to use with our wide range of dies – particularly our Cover-Up Die-namics. Strong, clear adhesive makes it a breeze to add an even coating of glitter, flocking, foil, microbeads and more!

unnamed

Lastly, in our January 2014 release, we updated our Card Stock Sampler to includes all 43 colors in our Replenishments palette AND we’ve also included a printed color card. Now you can test the entire line and stock up on your favorites in the full, 25 sheet packs! Just a reminder in case you forgot to grab it last month ;)

I think it’s safe to say that most of you were pretty darn excited when you found out our Free with $60 set last month was a beautiful Die-namics set.  Well this month is no different. Our Four Corners Die-namics includes four ornate corner pieces ready to pretty up your cards, photos, and projects. Who says they’re just for corners though? Cut a single die cut to use as an ornate layering element or cut multiples of the same image to create a beautiful and textural pattern. The choice is yours with this FREE set!

You can see the Four Corners Die-namics at work HERE or by clicking play on the video below.

Shhh, do you hear that? That’s the sound of AWESOME being zipped into your next project. The Zipper Die-namics includes everything you need to create a fun, realistic zipper look. Use this set to create cards that include the perfect spot for tucking in a smaller sentiment or handwritten note, or a gift card. Emulate the look of your teen’s favorite sweatshirt by adding a logo, emblem, or mascot. Create a contrasting look by mixing the colors you choose for the zipper body and teeth or match them for a more subdued look.

Zip on over for a closer look at this set by clicking HERE or by playing the video below.

The new Pure Innocence Sassitude stamp set is just right for the females in your life that are a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy. Bedecked in a flirty tutu and spotted boots, she offers up lots of fun coloring and embellishing opportunities. Matching sentiments  are just the right finishing touch.

Wow your recipient with bold, trendy pattern courtesy of the new Cheetah Background stamp. Whether you choose the more traditional route of browns and blacks or go crazy with bright and vivid colors, you’re sure to charm anyone lucky enough to receive a card highlighting this wild design.

Also, we have a BONUS video today. Another episode of MFTv. this time featuring a card assembled with the new Zipper Die-namics.

An opportunity to win a $75 gift voucher for every day of the Countdown is just our way of saying “thanks” for being such great customers and more importantly, friends. We’re just 3 days away from our February release and we hope you’re as excited about it as we are!

    • You can enter to win by commenting on each of the seven countdown posts on the MFT Blog before Noon EST on February 11. Please leave only one comment per person, per day.

If you are looking to pump up your letter die options, might we suggest the Little Lowercase Letters Die-namics set? It coordinates with our existing Little Letters and Little Numbers sets for a perfectly versatile, sweetly sized full alphabet. Double up this set’s options by using the letter negative to create a tiny, personalized initial tag or stencil!

To get a better look at the Little Lowercase Letters, click HERE or play the video below.

Make a scene with the new Chandelier Die-namics. This exquisite die will be the star of any project you add it to. Drama and glamour are guaranteed whether you use it alone as the centerpiece of your design or use in conjunction with other elements to create a tableau. Center within a hole cut from your card front and let it twist and turn in the breeze. Or, create striking ornaments by layering the die cuts to strengthen them or even by adding a slit in the pieces to slide them together to form a 3 dimensional design. Because of the intricate nature of this design, we recommend using our Metal Adapter Plate for perfect cuts every time.

See the Chandelier Die-namics up close and personal HERE or by playing the following video.

Use this set to tuck subdued sans serif phrases in amongst fun script statement words to devise an endless array of unique sentiments guaranteed to delight and prove to your recipient just how much they are thought of. Show off your custom design on one of our banner or flag Die-namics or display it front and center on a panel created with one of the STAX or Blueprints set.  Use this set to tell everyone how incredible you think they are because no one ever gets tired of hearing it! While you’re at it, make a card for yourself because You Are Absolutely Amazing too!

Still want more? Head to our Design Team member blogs for even more eye candy. February Guest Designer Gayatri Murali is back with us again as well!
