Teaser Time: Day Four

I hope you’re having as much fun as we are soaking in all of the beautiful Teasers from our Design Team.  Our newest release will be tomorrow, Tuesday February 1st at 10pm EST.  As always, we’ll meet up first from 8-10pm EST on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers for previews on THIS thread contest questions and of course, a lot of laughs.  You won’t want to miss it!

Today is also the deadline for our Guest Designer Challenge!  Remember it is YOUR chance to play along with our Design Team in Daily Teasers for our next release, and win our March release!

Today you’ll be seeing previews created with Inspired by Butterflies and Enjoy Every Moment


Die-namics Preview

Before you head on out to see what our designers have put together for you, how about a quick preview of one of our soon to be released Die-namics dies.   You will simply adore our Butterflies Die-namics.  Create custom embellishments with this set of dies featuring two solid shapes, and a third that includes cutouts on the wings.  They are just perfect for stacking, and adding lots of dimension – their small size makes them just the right size for cardmaking!  I’m sure by now you’ve run across it in our Teasers, but you’ll love adding these sweet shapes out of patterned paper, cardstock, felt, acetate, velum etc.  We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with it!

Teaser Time Prizes:

As always, we have two secret blog candy holders from yesterday.  Jody and Jodi were our blog candy holders.  Winners were selected at random from all of their blog comments yesterday.  Are you ready to see who has won…. lets see if it is YOU!
The first winner, selected at random from all the comments on Jody Morrow’s Blog was:

Teaser Time: à la modes – Something’s Fishy

Welcome back to our second day of Teasers for our mid month release featuring two à la modes, and our upcoming VIP Kit!

The new stamp sets, and the VIP Kit will be available this evening beginning at 10pm EST.  Remember the VIP Kit is a limited availability, one day only offering, so I advise shopping early if you’d like to take it home with you!  After that, the new Who’s That Girl stamp set will not be available until our February release…

Just a reminder that the a la modes are our cling rubber line of stamps. Here’s the 411 on these fun, flirty and fabulous girls:

- Each set is produced in the USA using the highest quality rubber, with the deepest etch possible.

- Each image and sentiment is backed on cling foam and scroll cut, making it ready for stamping right out of the bag!

- Packaged in a clear hang bag, we’ve also provided the ideal storage solution by including a thick laminated header card in each set that can be used to store the stamp set, in its entirety, after purchase.

So, lets take a peek at the newest à la modes: Something’s Fishy! She’s an outdoorsy, yet fashionable little thing, look at those cute wellies.  Of course we’ve designed this set with several clever matching sentiments – I’m sure you’ll see a variety of them on your tour through the participating designers blogs.

Be sure to hop around to visit with the listed designers, and then we’ll see you tonight at 10pm for our VIP Hop and a little shopping too!

Teaser Time Day Five: Let’s Get Physical

At long last, it is Tuesday, January 4th! Which means that tonight is our HUGE new Release beginning with our New Release Cocktail Party beginning at 8pm EST on Splitcoast Stampers on this thread!  All the new stamps and Die-namics will be available beginning at 10pm EST. We’ll also kick start our monthly Shop Hop this evening at 10pm EST. It is a great chance to have one last gander at each of the stamps and Die-namics dies before you finalize your orders!

Then again, if you’re a TLC Member, you’ll be able to shop beginning at 9pm EST!  Want to learn how to join the Tub Lovin’ club and shop an hour early? You’ll find all the information here!

Our last set of Teasers today will focus on the newest Who’s That Girl: Let’s Get Physical.  This stamp will get a workout (…sorry I couldn’t help myself…) by all of us working on New Years Resolutions, in training for a big charity run (…or walk…) or even to show support for our “running friends.” We’ve all got one of those right?

Die-namics Teaser

I have two new Die-namics teasers to share with you today. I’m sure you’ve seen these amazing dies as part of the designers daily previews, but today lets take a little closer look!

Our new Rosette dies will help you create beautiful, precise rosette flowers with ease.  The Rosette dies come in two different score-spacing sizes: 3/8″ or 1/4″.  The score lines being closer together, creates a tighter accordian fold, and more flat rosette.  The 3/8″ score lines provide a more full rosette.  These dies only SCORE lines in the paper.  They do not cut or have a perforated score line.  This allows for a clean and polished finish product.  To make one flower, simply roll the die through twice, accordian fold using the score lines as a guide, and adhere the pieces end-to-end, creating a “loop”.  Flip one side in toward the center, and your rosette will form.  These are fun, trendy, and add pizazz to any paper creation.

Now that you’ve seen what the Die-namics look like, how about a video that I’ve put together to show you how to create these fabulous rosettes.  You can find the Die-namics Rosette Tutorial Die-namics Rosette Tutorial on YouTube.

Teaser Time Prizes

Now that you’ve had a peek at the newest stamp teaser, and had a moment to drool over the new Rosette Die-mamics, how about some PRIZES!  Each day, two stamp sets are up for grabs, and your chances at being one of the lucky winners increase each time you leave a comment on one of the blogs of our participating designers.

Yesterday’s secret blog candy holders were Joanne and Michele

The first winner, selected at random from Joanne’s blog was:
