MFT Teasers Day 1

Hello! It's Day 1 of the MFT Teasers and I can't WAIT to show you what I've been up to:) As you may or may not know, I won the May Guest Designer Spot for MFT! I am so thrilled and honored to be playing with this amazing team and these SUPER FABULOUS stamps! I really hit the jackpot when I won this month, this is absolutely my FAVORITE MFT release EVER and I'm not just saying that because I'm the Guest DT. This release has so many amazing stamps and dies, ones I'm sure to come back to again and again! Today, we're previewing three fun sets! And being the over-achiever I am, I made a card for each set! Since I have so much to share, lets get right to it!

The first set I'll share is called Well Worn Greetings and is a stamp set with matching dies! You will *LOVE* this set and the dies, truly amazing and versatile! I made a couple cards with this set, but the card I decided to share today doesn't use the dies, only the stamps!


I made this one masculine, I'm thinking of sending it to my Dad on Father's day:) The big gingham label stamp in the background, as well as the "You're my Hero" stamps come from the Well Worn Greetings stamp set! The "Dad", stars, and circle stamps came for the Typewriter Alpha set released last month! I finished this one up with buttons and twine, I think my dad will love this card:)

Next up is this cute set called SS Flapper!


Man, I used to *LOVE* watching Gilligan's Island on Nick at Night, I miss that show! The name of this set reminds me of the show, lol! Remember the SS Minnow?:) Good times! I colored the adorable Flappers with Copics to match these Cosmo paers from Salt Air! I did a bit of doodling on the sentiment flag again, I've been into doodling for this release, don't know why,l ol! I added lots of stickels to the waves, and even used a ric rac border die to create more waves! FUN set, you will *love* it:)

Last set we're peaking today is called Fred Bear plays Indian!


Okay, this is my first Fred Bear set and now I must go back and buy all the previous releases because he is SOOOO CUTE! I don't color animals very often, so he was an experiment, lol! Most of the coloring I do is in the "feathering" style, and I think it works for him! It makes him look furry, I think:) There are a bunch of cute sentiments in this set, and I just adore it:) I also used the new Scalloped Ribbon Die-namics border die on top of the card, under the twine! That is a SERIOUSLY fun die, you'll love it! 

Well that's all I have to share today! Stop by Kim's blog to see the entire list of participating blogs for MORE sneaky peeks! Thanks SO much for stopping by today:) Come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks!!
