Teaser Time Day Five

Welcome back to another day of Teasers for our upcoming release on Tuesday, October 5th!  Please join us for our New Release Cocktail Party on the MFT Forum from 8-10pm Tuesday night, and then for some shopping when the new items are added to our Brand New Boutique at 10pm EST!

Today we’re previewing two new stamps from our a la modes collection!  These flirty and fabulous girls are so fun to work with whether you’re coloring or paper piecing.  I’ve seen some incredible samples from our designers, and let me say you’re in for a treat!

Up first, is Fight Like a Girl, built specifically for National Breast Cancer Awareness and in honor of all our friends who are fighting the fight…..  Love to you all…. The set includes six coordinating sentiments perfect no matter whether you’re sending a card to thank a friend for her support, or sending a card to lend YOUR support to a friend.

Our second set today is Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch, and really, isn’t she lovely?  Add this cutie pie to your fall cards, scrapbook pages or 3d projects.  I adore her cropped pants!  Many of these sentiments will coordinate with our popular Tab Die-namics, and you’ve got enough sentiments to finish off the inside of your card as well!

Die-namics Preview:

The next Die-namics preview for you, is our new Postage Stamp Border Die-namics. This adds a fun custom detail to your projects, I know I’ve seen it in use a lot this week from our designers.  Use it on its own, or in conjunction with our First Class Friend Die-namics from our September release.

 

New Website Details:  Please be sure to see THIS announcement on the MFT Blog with important information about our new website. We’re thrilled about the new changes, but there are some details you’ll want to tend to so that you’re ready to shop on Tuesday night!

Teaser Time Prizes: I hope you’re enjoying our extended Teaser Time, which now includes a full seven days of teasers from our Design Team.  This also extends our prize time!  There will be a total of 14 prizes given out just before the Release Party on Tuesday night.  Be sure to maximize your chances at winning one of them by leaving a comment on each of the participating designers posts each day!

Teaser Time Day Four

I hope you’re having a blast following along each day as we prepare for our upcoming October Release.  All the latest stamps and Die-namics will be available beginning at 10pm EST on Tuesday, October 4th.  But, just before that, we’ll be partying over on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers.  Be sure to join us from 8-10pm for lots of chitter chatter with the MFT Designers and your fellow MFT Fanatics, we’ll announce the winner of our Guest Designer Contest – you ARE submitting a project for that right? – there will also be PRIZES given away during the party, you won’t want to miss it!

Full Set Reveal and Die-namics Previews:

Today we’re going to take a look at two different stamp sets and Die-namics dies.  Both of today’s sets are Die-namic and Stamp Duos, so we’ve got a LOT to look at!

Up first is a really fun cooking and baking themed set. This includes a mini-tag as well as eight miniature Die-namics dies.  Create tags for home made (or, shh. store bought  & re-packaged we’ll never tell) treats, place cards, recipe cards, invitations and more.

Here’s just a glimpse at this stamp set in action!
Pair the mini dies with the sentiments to create Bon Appetit tags
in countless combinations!

The next stamp and Die-namic pairing to share with you today is the Contempo Cage Die-namics and Stamp Set.

You’ll be able to create this beautiful, highly detailed birdcage, bird and wing either on its own, or paired with the coordinating stamp set.

The set includes nine coordinating sentiments as well as six patterned wings, tiny bird feet and even an assortment of chains to hang your birdhouse from.  We just know you’ll have a fun time working with this set to create your own customized project!

Here’s a peek at our Contempo Cage Bird House and Die-namics die in action….

Teaser Time Prizes:

Remember that we’re giving away fourteen prizes this week! You’ll maximize your chances at winning one of them by leaving a little love on each of the participating design team member’s blog posts each day.  You have until October 4th at 7pm EST to leave all your comments, and the winners will be announced at or around 7:30pm EST right here on the MFT Blog!

Teaser Time Day Three

Welcome to Day Three of our Teasers in preparation for our upcoming October Release! If you haven’t already done so, please add Tuesday, October 4th to your calendar! We’ll be partying over on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers from 8-10pm EST.  The doors to the Boutique will open at 10pm EST, and we hope to see you there!

Today’s the day that we’re talking all about our Triple Scoop Stamp Sets.  If you’re not familiar with our Triple Scoop Rewards Program, then here’s the deal!  Our Triple Scoop reward is a full-sized stamp set offered to you absolutely free with a qualifying purchase of $60 or greater (before shipping and tax).  The set changes with each monthly release, and is not yet available for individual purchase, so there is always a good reason to spoil yourself with MFT!  When placing your order, simply add the Triple Scoop product to your cart using the “add to cart” button, and it will be shipped with your order.

Please note: You must add the Triple Scoop product to your cart or it will not be included with your order.

Last month, our Triple Scoop Set was Clearly Sentimental About Family – and it will be available for sale on Tuesday night.   You’ll love that you can individually stamp in the word family in the font and color of your choice into any of the included sentiments for complete versatility….

Here’s a quick peek at the set in action….

Now, its time to take a peek at this month’s Triple Scoop Set
Clearly Sentimental About Abundance.

This 4×6 sized set includes six inspirational, affirmative
sentiments focused on the concept of Abundance.

Abundance is all about having a grateful heart
for the blessings we’ve been given.

I hope you’ll be moved by this beautiful set, so
let’s take a closer look at this month’s Triple Scoop Reward…..

Die-namics Preview:

Each day, we take a close look at one of the upcoming  Die-namics dies. Since we’re looking at the Clearly Sentimental sets today, I thought it was a great time to look at the Vintage Flourish Die-namic.

This will make a beautiful custom embellishment for any project, but I know that in particular, it will pair so nicely with those sentiment focused projects!  This is a beautiful die to add to your collection so that you have just the right piece when you want to add a decorative accent. 

And it is so affordably priced, at only $2.95, you really just *should* bring it home with you on release night!

Teaser Time Prizes:

Don’t forget that we’re giving away two prizes for each preview day! You’ve got until about 7pm on Tuesday to submit all your comments for the week, the winners will be announced at or around 7:30pm – just before our New Release Party.
