MFT Teaser Day One--A {Just Chill} Sketch For You to Try

Well, I'm very excited about this latest release coming your way from My Favorite Things. Yep, ya'll heard right, new stamps from MFT! In fact, today is the first day of Teasers. So naturally, I just had to combine my sample with my Sketch For You To Try card from Jen. So today's a two-for-one special! I guess it should have been a Halloween card in anticipation for tomorrow, but the new stuff from MFT centers a little more around the wintery holidays. Can I show ya'll more Halloween next week? We'll just celebrate Halloween all week, how' that sound?


The stamp set I'm spotlighting today is called Wyatt-Just Chillin'. Isn't he cute? Well, I guess you can't really tell with this picture here, go back up to the top! teehee. Do you see anything else new? OH MY STARS YES!! New Stacking Stars Die-namics!!

Ya'll know I LOVE to make my own embellishments and so this Let it Snowflake Trio with the star layered on top with the twine and brad was a no brainer! Sometimes I think I should make a bunch of these ahead of time, but I have so much fun making them, I think it would be boring to not make a special one for each card! (Plus, I don't have room to store them. UGH!)

Eeeeep! I almost forgot to mention that Kim will have a full link list of other MFT sisters that have Teasers for ya'll today! Head over to her blog and check them out. She'll have that posted at 11 am EST.

Ok, here's the part where I show ya'll the sketch, and YOU get to play along! Link up your creation to the linky thing on Jen's blog and YOU may be her next guest designer! Check out what the rest of the SFYTT team did this week:

SUSIE Q-TIP: To make the twine bow "underneath" the brad, just tie it onto the brad legs like you're tying a shoe before pushing it through a punched hole in your cardstock. So much easier than holding it all in place while making the embellishment.
