Teaser Time Day Three

We’re on our third day of previews for our upcoming December release.  Be sure to add Tuesday, December 6th at 8pm EST to your calendar.  We’ll be meeting up on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers for a little pre-party before the new stamps and Die-namics are available at 10pm EST.

Today we’re focusing on our Triple Scoop Special stamp sets. The Triple Scoop is a reward to customers purchasing $60 or more (excluding tax and shipping).  This full sized set changes each month, and will not be available until the following month as an individual purchase!   Simply add the Triple Scoop product to your cart using the “add to cart” button, and it will be shipped with your order.  The Triple Set set can be combined with our Cherry on Top promotion as well for even greater savings! PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to add Triple Scoop sets to your order once it is placed.  You will not receive it unless it is added to your cart.

 This month’s Triple Scoop Reward is Clearly Sentimental Pearls of Wisdom.  This set includes nine fabulous sentiments, which of these beautiful pearls of wisdom will you want to share on a card or scrapbook page?

Last month’s Triple Scoop set Clearly Sentimental about Christmas will be available as an individual stamp set beginning on Tuesday at 10pm EST.  This 4×6 set contains ten sentiments which are so perfectly timed for holiday cards, tags or scrapbook pages.  With a variety of seasonal greetings, including several sized fonts, we hope you’ll find just the one you need!

Die-namics Preview:

As you know, each day, during Teaser Time, we offer a preview of one of the new Die-namics dies which will be available at the new release.  Today, I’m excited to share with you the newest doily Die-namics, the Oval Open Scallop Die-namics. Whether you use it as an accent piece, or as the matting to your focal image, you’ll simply love this Die-namics. It is perfectly sized to accompany our Pure Innocence images, you’ll also find that it is perfectly complimentary to our Clearly Sentimental line.   I’m sure you’ve seen quite a bit of this element from our designers in the first two days of Teaser Time.

Guest Designer Contest:  While I’m sure you’re busy with preparation for the upcoming holiday season, you surely will want to tuck some time aside to participate in this month’s Guest Designer Contest. After all, it is your chance to join the My Favorite Things Design Team for a month. The winner joins us for the weekly Wednesday Stamp Club sketches as well as Teaser Time for our January release!  Oh, and did I forget to mention, wins over $200 in merchandise from the upcoming January release… you’ll find all the details on this post on the  MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers.

Teaser Time Day Two

Welcome back to Day Two of Teasers for our upcoming December Release. Remember that Teaser Time will run through Tuesday, December 6th, and we’ll plan to meet you at 8pm EST on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers to kick off our New Release Party!  The doors to the boutique will open at 10pm EST.

We hope you’ll stop by each of the participating designers blogs each day.  I’ll have a list for you here on the MFT Blog to let you know who has a sample to share.  You’ll want to leave a little love on each of these previews, after all we’ll be giving out two prizes for each day of teasers, for a total of fourteen prizes.  And, the best news? You’ve got nearly a full week to leave your comments.  Winners will be selected at about 7pm EST on December 6th, and announced at 7:30 right here on the MFT Blog!

Full Set Reveals:

Today we have three stamp sets to share with you, and they each are a totally different style. No matter whether your preference is vintage or cutesy, I think you’ll find something that suits your style today!

Up first, let’s take a peek at the fourth set in the Inspired by Flowers series. This is a highly detailed set featuring paperwhites and a chrysanthemum, along with four beautiful sentiments.  These images are a dream to color or paint, as the shading detail is already built in, simply focus more color where the image is already darkened and you’ll be off to a great start!

Our next set is perfectly times to work on calendars for 2012, or perhaps titles on scrapbook pages.  What about pretty file tabs to organize your 2012 receipts?  Whatever you choose to work on, you’ll have lots of creative options with Inspired by Months of the Year.

Just in time for the winter months, and cold and flu season,
Fred Bear is back this month in Fred Bear Gives Comfort.

Die-namics Preview:

Each day during Teasers we sure a preview of one of our soon to be released Die-namics dies.  Today we’ll take a look at the Fringed Perennial Die-namics.  This is a five piece die set, which will assemble in much the same way as our Prima Donna Petals Die-namics.  The grey lines on each of the petals indicate embossing lines which will make a truly fabulous detail. The three circular centers will nest together, and the fringed cuts all around will create a beautiful flower center.

Teaser Time Prizes: Have you been leaving comments for each of the participating designers? We’ll be giving out fourteen Teaser Time Prizes, and in order to maximize your chances at winning one, be sure to leave a comment on each of the participating Design Team members blogs each day. You’ll find a list of the participating designers right here on the Blog each day!   Winners will be announced here, just before the New Release Party at 7:30pm EST on Tuesday, December 6th.

We’re well on our way to our November Release – with three days of Teasers behind us, we’ve got three more days of new previews, and then our very special Pre-Relese Pep Rally on Tuesday!  I hope by now you’ve had some time to prep your submission for our monthly Guest Designer Contest.  The winner will receive up to $200 in merchandise from our upcoming December release, and will participate in our weekly Wednesday Stamp Club as well as Teaser Time for the December release.  You’ll find all the details of this fun challenge HERE on the MFT Forum.  Entries are due by Tuesday, November 1st at noon EST so….get stamping!

Mark your calendars for the New Release Party and the official release of all the goodies we’ve been taunting you with for days!  We’ll meet first over at the MFT Forum from 8-10pm EST – our TLC Members will gain early access to the boutique at 9pm EST.  While you all wait patiently, or possibly, not so patiently…  you can enjoy chatting with MFT designers and fans, and perhaps even win a prize!!  The party starts HERE!

Stamp Set Reveals:

Today, we’re taking a look at two new Stamp and Die-namic pairings.  These are both enormous stamp sets simply loaded with creative possibilities.

Up first is the Christmas Ornaments Die-namics and Stamp Set.  With this set you can stamp the pattern or decorative elements of your choice onto your chosen die cut elements.  The coordinating Die-namics set is an eight piece die with ornaments of various shapes and sizes, and even tiny coordinating ornament hangers.  Just wait till you see the samples our designers have come up with for you today!

 This is a quick peek at the stamp set in action, but the greatest part,
is that you’ll be able to mix and match the elements to your hearts desire for unlimited creative options!


Our  second Die-namic and Stamp set Duo today is the Vintage Cameo Frame. This is a clean, elegant set which is truly a breeze to work with. Create sophisticated cards, pages and projects using the four different cameos, you’ll find a highly detailed oval border to coordinate, as well as a double line frame.  Both of these shapes are built specifically to work with the coordinating Die-namics die.   A beautiful font was selected, and you’ll have the flexibility to stamp in just the sentiment pairing you need  whether it is for an in-law, grandmother, son or dear friend.

again, we’ve got a quick graphic showing you how some of the elements work together….
but soon you’ll be seeing the set in action from our designers…
I can’t wait to show you what they’ve come up with

Die-namics Preview:

Each day during Teaser Time we take a look at some of the Die-namics up close.  Today we have an exciting announcement! Starting with our November release on Tuesday night, Die-namics available with OR without their coordinating stamp sets!    We’ve received numerous requests to make our Die-namics available as solo products without the stamp sets, and we’ve listened!  Moving forward, any stamp and Die-namics combos will be offered as a Die-only product as well!

Whether you’re in need of an extra Die-namics to speed up your crafting, or in the event there is a Die-namics you need that you don’t need or want the companion stamp set, we’ve got you covered!

The November release will include the Die-only versions of the following:

November Teaser Time – Day Two

Welcome back to the second day of Teasers for My Favorite Things.  Remember to mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 1st from 8-10pm EST.  We’ll meet at the MFT Forum – chat about our new favorite products, get to know your fellow MFT Fans as well as the MFT Designers a little better.  And of course, there will be contest questions – which means, there will be PRIZES! Be sure to brush up on your new product knowledge just before the party!

Full Set Reveal:

Today, we have two very different style sets to share with you.  So, whether your style is furry and cute, or vintage and lovely, we’ve got a little something to share with you today.

Fans of our friend Fred Bear will find him already hibernating for the season… I’ve seen some very sweet samples from the team with our friend Fred already, and I know you’ll love what the girls have in store for you.

Our Inspired By series this month focuses on the magic of Christmas.  This exquisite, highly detailed set will be beautiful either colored with markers, painted, colored with pencils or with any number of different techniques.

Die-namics Reveal:

As you know, each day, during Teaser Time, we’ll take a look at one of the upcoming Die-namics dies.  You’ve all embraced the Doily Die-namics, and we’re now continuing with this popular series with oval versions.  These are an especially perfect fit for our Pure Innocence images, sentiments from Clearly Sentimental and images from our Inspired By line.  The Oval Dainty Doily measures 3.3 by 4.11 inches and I’m sure you’ll be seeing it a lot from our designers in the next few days.

November Teaser Time Begins!

Okay people, it’s time to get excited!  We’re about to kick off the New Release preparations for My Favorite Things November Release.  For the next seven days, we’re going to share the newest stamps and Die-namics dies.  I’m sure you haven’t forgotten…there will be prizes!  Fourteen of them to be exact, and all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the Design Team previews.  You’ll find links to the participating designers here on the MFT Blog each and every day!

Be sure to mark our November Release on your calendar for Tuesday, November 1st from 8-10pm EST.  First we’ll meet you over on the MFT Forum for the monthly New Release Party from 8-10pm EST.  Join MFT’s Designers, as well as fellow MFT Fans for lots of chatter about the new release, as well as even more prizes! Be sure to brush up on your new release details to maximize your chances at winning!

The Guest Designer Contest is ON!

Each month, as part of our New Release preparations, we invite MFT Fans everywhere to participate in our monthly search for a guest designer.  The winner will join us in the weekly Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge, will participate in daily teasers for the December release and will win a prize package valued at over $200 loaded with product from the December release!  You’ll find all the details of the Guest Designer Contest on this thread.

Full Set Reveals:

The first set that we’re sharing with you might look familiar…..  It was briefly available as part of our VIP Kit in Mid-November. The set sold out within a few short hours, so my guess is that several of you will be eagerly awaiting its return on Tuesday, November 1st!

Our friend Who’s That Girl is a dream to color, or paper piece.  You’ll have a bevvy of creative options with the six companion sentiments.  You can use the secondary image, the oversized cup of cocoa either as an inside and outside treatment, or you can even use it as a stand alone image. With those long winter months ahead, I’m sure you’ll find lots of reasons to send cozy cards….

Die-namics Preview:

In early January Jody approached me with an idea for another new and revolutionary die, and I thought I’d offer a glimpse into both her mind, and our creative process!

Jody came up with an idea for the Loopy Bloom die, and then created several samples of various sizes to see which worked, and looked, best.  Anyone who knows Jody knows that every angle is always WELL explored!  And we love her for that…

Once the samples were created, she sent over a picture of how she wanted the die constructed.

Again you’ll notice her thoroughness in action as everything is precisely measured and drawn.  I love that chick… <3

You’ll also notice little red lines down the center of the die, representing score lines.  Why is this feature so important?  Without those score lines, you can’t easily manufacture paper Loopy Bloom flowers.  And who wants to be limited?

Jody and I work very hard to bring you THE most original and well thought out products available on the market, and I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our creative process!

Just below, you’ll find a video from Jody showing several ways to assemble the Loopy Bloom!
