It's Teaser Time!

Yippee - it's time! Today is the first of five days of amazing teasers for the My Favorite Things April release! I just have to take a moment to thank Kim, Jody and the entire MFT team for making one of my stamping dreams come true - it's been so inspiring and an honor to create with you all this month!

There are just so many new goodies being released this month....I've used Typewriter Alphabet, Own Your Story and the Fishtail Banner Die-namic for my card today.
*swoon* I'm telling you - this is THE best typewriter alphabet out there. I couldn't believe all the letter sizes and the awesome key images included.

Let's talk about that fishtail banner shall we? A new fave for sure! The teeny scallops on those circles are just adorable. I've popped my banner up on dimensionals, and used a piece of satin ribbon folded in half to "string" it all together.

The papers are from the Le Chateau collection by Kaisercraft. That polka dot paper is flocked - and let me tell you...that is one reason I LOVE Die-namics - I've had punches throw a little tantrum over flocked paper before - no problems like that with Die-namics!
The stamps on the inside of my card come from the Own Your Story set - I am not kidding when I tell you this is a HUGE set. I stamped a swirl from the set in kraft, then overstamped the sentiment in Brilliance Black. I hand cut the black border around the butterfly, and traced the Polka Dot Greetings die to get the perfect mat size.

Here are all the Die-namics I've used on this card:

Oh my goodness you are a genius -- using the pennants for Happy Birthday is one thing, but using the sentiment for birthdays is just so cool -- it had not occurred to me!
