Teaser Day Five: Winter in the City, Happy Thoughts, Snowflake Flopsey

Today is the last day of previews – which means and all the latest stamps and accessories will be available this evening! Are you as excited as we are?  I sure hope the answer to that is YES!!

Tonight we’ll have:

13 New Sets
5 Must-Have Die-namics
New Card Stock Colors
Winter Wonderland Felt Collection
Winter in the City Ribbons

Our New Release Cocktail party will be at 8pm EST on Wednesday, October 6th – don’t forget that  we’ll be announcing the winner of our October Guest Designer contest at the event!  Be sure to join us starting at 8pm EST on THIS THREAD

Shopping will begin at 10pm EST - that is unless you are a member of the MFT Tub Lovin’ Club – need the details on how you can shop one hour earlier?  Find out HERE.

While we’re busy making preparations for tonight, how about a BIT more eye candy?

This month’s Who’s That Girl is Winter in the City – you might remember her from our VIP Kit a few months ago. She’s already begun to show up in blog land, and in challenge galleries. If you missed her within the kit, now is your chance to add the stamp set to your collection! You can easily customize your projects by stamping in the string of Christmas lights, or the sweet the little dog. As always, there are several sentiments to choose from.

Up next is Happy Thoughts – if you were in the booth at CHA this summer, then you might already have this stamp set in your collection. Happy Thoughts is our Triple Scoop Promotional set this month, which means if you purchase three full sized sets, you can add this one to your order for FREE!

Please be sure to READ all the details on our Triple Scoop program, including, MOST importantly, that it needs to be added to your cart to receive it once the order minimum has been reached. Relying on us to remember is a no-go.

And for those Flopsey Lovers out there, he’s back in the lineup this month with Snowflake Flopsey – seriously cute right?

Teasers Day 2 – Game Night Duo, Fred Bear & the Snow Bear and Ballet Millie

Hello again! Today I’ve got three previews and I am STOKED to show them off, particularly the first one, Game Night Die-namics & Stamp Set Duo!

But first, here’s the 411:
- The Teasers go live on the MFT Blog every day at 11am EST with direct links to the Designers previewing projects that day
- The Guest Designer contest is posted in our FORUM, play along for a chance to join us next month, not to mention over $125 in FREE stamps!
- Our Release Party starts at 8pm on October 6th
- The new sets & Die-namics go live at 10pm EST on Oct 6th right HERE

Here is an idea of the stamp set. I can NOT even count how many possibilities there are in this set, but I will tell you this. Jody and I (and Laina!) worked VERY hard on this set, a small piece being a 3 HOUR conference call between Jody and I. Why? Because we wanted to make sure this set is applicable to card makers.

There’s lots of versatility and fun options of course, but if the end result wasn’t something you’d grab time and again (because it’s filled with useful options) it didn’t matter how cute it was. So we thunk, and thunk and Googled and worked diligently to create a set that would be INCREDIBLY fun and useful, and we are quite proud with the end result.

Now, here’s check out the amazing Die-namic die we designed the set around…

Meet our Game Night Spinner die! It is over 3.25″ in diameter. The combo retails for $24.95 and is an amazing value when you see all that’s included. I can NOT wait until you see what the Design Team has been creating with this duo. ACK! It won’t come soon enough for me!

Next up is Fred Bear busy making a “friend” for himself in Snow Bear. LOVE him!!!! He has two sweet sentiments as well.

And look who’s back! It’s Millie and she’s passing her time in absolute joy! Look at that smile!!! EEK she’s precious!

And now that I know your head is SPINNING (Ha!) with possibilities, I’ll let you go on with your day, dreaming about October 6th when all of these, and many more, can be YOURS!

Now, to see all these stamp sets turned into cards and projects, you’ll want to stop around to see the following designers:

Teasers Day 1 – Polka Dot Greetings & CS about Books

Shockingly, it is time for OCTOBER Teasers gearing up for our October 6th Release. We are releasing 13 new sets, a new Triple Scoop and 5 new Die-namics, two of which are stamp & die duo’s and I am impatiently waiting until you get to see everything!

Here’s the 411:
- The Teasers go live on the MFT Blog every day at 11am EST with direct links to the Designers previewing projects that day
- The Guest Designer contest is posted in our FORUM, play along for a chance to join us next month, not to mention over $125 in FREE stamps!
- Our Release Party starts at 8pm on October 6th
- The new sets & Die-namics go live at 10pm EST on Oct 6th right HERE

Today I have have two super previews for you, a Die-namics and set combo called Polka Dot Greetings and Clearly Sentimental about Books.

Polka Dot Greetings is a die and stamp set combo that retails for $19.95. The stamp set includes 3 Polka Dot frame options and 5 sentiments, all of which are interchangeable and multi-purpose! How stinkin’ clever is that! You can easily use this combo to create quick and easy (ahem….last minute) cards but can also combine it with your favorite images when you’ve got time on your hands. The inside of each frame is also shaped differently which allows several different sentiment sizes. The nifty part of that is that you can select your frame based on your sentiment size and never have too much or too little empty space!

The Polka Dot Greetings Die-namics die measures approx. 3.25″ X 1.75″ and is the perfect size for most sentiment treatments. Isn’t this a lovely shape? Classic, sophisticated, stylish….and that’s a very good thing.

Clearly Sentimental about Books has GOT to be THE most requested Clearly Sentimental set yet. I’ve had many dozens of emails asking when this set would be released for sale individually, and the answer is October 6th!

Here are the Designers showing off these new sets today:
