Full Set Reveal: 

Our first reveal today is a Die-namics and Stamp Set combination.  At the Movies. This is a fresh and bold stamp set which includes SO many custom elements to create with.  You’ll love the collection of fonts included in this set, and the amazing movie style numbers.

The Die-namics set built to coordinate with this includes a an oversize film frame, a full reel of film, a movie camera, a popcorn box, a ticket and a clapboard.  Create fabulous cards, pages and 3-d movie themed projects with this HUGE set measuring 6×8 inches!

Here’s just a few examples of how you can put these elements together,
but as you see, the set has so many options the possibilities are nearly endless!

And, you might recall that we’re now selling the stamp and Die-namics combination sets also as Die-only versions.

So, if for any reason, you’re interested in only the Die-namics for this set,
this Die-only version will also be added to the product lineup on Tuesday, January 3rd at 10pm EST.

but wait, there’s MORE!

Today we’re also previewing a new stamp set Monogram Alphabet.  This stamp set includes all 26 letters as well as two complimentary circular elements.  Create your own custom sentiments, or create beautiful monogrammed card or gift sets. This set is built to coordinate with the circle within the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.

 

Here’s a peek at this fun and versatile stamp set in action.

Here’s a quick view of the dies stacked together, as you can see, the color of the larger sized heart will peek through the openings in the smaller sized heart.  These openings are also perfect for threading through ribbon or twine for charming handmade detail.

Teaser Time Begins!

We’re here to celebrate the first day of Teaser Time for our upcoming January Release!  Please mark your calendars to join us for the upcoming release on January 3rd at 10 PM EST!

You can attend the New Release Party on January 3rd from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can enjoy fun, games, and PRIZES! You won’t want to miss it!

Since our mid month VIP Kit contained Pure Innocence images, you haven’t yet seen this month’s Who’s That Girl. She’s trendy and fabulous within this month’s Who’s that Parisian Girl? The set contains 13 coordinating sentiments as well as the Eiffel Tower in two sizes, and some beautiful decorative elements.

Die-namics Preview:

Our first Die-namics preview this month coordinates well with Who’s that Parisian girl, as well as all the fabulous sentiments included in that set. It’s also a great match to many of our sentiment based sets.  What about using it alone with our new By the Letters Die-namics?  This will be the perfect accent for all your “love filled” cards, pages and projects for Valentine’s Day.  I’m sure you’ll find many creative uses for our Eiffel Tower Die-namics measuring 1.5 inches wide and 3 inches in height.

Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally

Tonight’s the night!  After a full week of Teasers, you’ll be able to choose your favorite items from the December Release at My Favorite Things to bring home with you this evening!  All the new stamps and Die-namics dies will be available beginning at 10pm EST this evening!

Our TLC Club Members will be able to shop one hour earlier at 9pm EST.  If you’d like to learn how you can shop one hour earlier, you can find out all about TLC Membership here.

While you’re waiting for the new items to hit the stores, be sure to join us for our New Release Party over on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers.Come chat with the MFT Designers and your fellow MFT Fans, and perhaps even win a prize!  We’ll also announce the winner of the Guest Designer Contest. You won’t want to miss it!

Be sure to take a moment to print out your copy of this month’s shopping list.  This is a great reference item for the party (hint: great for helping you win prizes!) and will also ensure that you haven’t left any of your favorites behind when you’re checking out.  Of course, you could easily help Santa out with stocking stuffers by leaving a filled out copy of this form on your bedside table!  Here’s a downloadable PDF file which is printer friendly: MFT_Dec2011_ShoppingList

I’m also participating in today’s Pep Rally with a project featuring the new Die-namics Skyline Border. When I received the samples of this months dies, Martin was checking them out and then immediately ran into my office and started creating. I couldn’t quite figure out what he was up to, he’d peek out and ask for things like a 1/4 hole punch, or if I had a moon shaped die (which is on the agenda, by the way!), and then disappear back inside, door closed behind him.

When he appeared with this finished piece, I was stunned! Isn’t it awesome??? You see, Emma has been having a bit of a love affair with NY, and when Martin saw the Skyline and By the Letters Die-namics, he knew he wanted to create a little something for her.

As you can see in this photo, he’s used the negative of the Die-namics Skyline border cut into shimmery grey card-stock and then nestled in a Die-namics Skyline Border cut from black card stock for a perfectly flush finish.  The letters are from our new Die-namics By the Letters.  

 

Sigh, sometimes these guys just make your heart melt, huh?

You’ll find lots of other ideas featuring our Die-namics dies from the following designers today:

Teaser Time Day Four

Usually during Teaser Time I’ll first share the full set reveals, and then share a close look at one of our new Die-namics dies.  Today I’ll be doing it a little differently, because the two sets I’m sharing today are stamp and die pairings!  These are built to coordinate together, however as you may remember from last month’s release, we’ve started making the Die-only versions of these sets available as well!  Let’s take a close look at the sets revealing today….

Up fist is Always Time for Tea,  this is a huge 6×8 stamp set including sixteen coordinating sentiments, as well as several stamped elements to create your own custom teapot.  The Die-namics set built to coordinate includes a teacup, saucer, teaspoon and a teabag label.  You’ll also have a die that cuts out the teapot as well as the lid, spout, base and handle so that you can create perfect paper pieced elements for your own custom teapot.

Our second stamp and Die-namics pairing is ALL-STAR.  Whether you are looking to make scrapbook pages or cards for your own All-Star you’ll have sentiments and a variety of sports themed elements to choose from!   Conveniently, the star image included in this set coordinates nicely with the Stacking Stars Die-namics and the circular element coordinates with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.

You’ll be amazed at the creations that our designers have put together for you today using these two sets.

Teaser Time Prizes: While you’re taking a look at the projects from our designers, be sure to leave a little love for the girls, after all, by commenting on each of the participating designers posts each day you’ll maximize your chances at winning one of FOURTEEN Teaser Time Prizes.  Be sure to leave your email in the body of the comment, or attached to your profile, after all, if we can’t reach you, we can’t award you a prize!

Guest Designer Challenge:  If you’re interested in joining the MFT Design Team as our guest for the month of December;  be sure to participate in this month’s challenge.  You’ll find all the details on this post on the MFT Forum.  The winner will receive a prize package containing $200 in stamps and Die-namics from the January 2012 release and join us for daily teasers, as well as our Wednesday Stamp Club challenge!
