Christmas Tags using Die-namics


Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.

But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!



Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.


We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.


And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.
**************************************** 
 

I wanted to get a head start on my christmas packaging, so today I have a set of tags using some of the soon to be released die-namics and stamps! I've used the new Clearly Sentimental Label - a die large enough for some of the sizeable sentiments in our Clearly Sentimental range and the wonderful new Christmas Ornaments stamps and dies.




For the base of my tags, I cut kraft cardstock with the Clearly Sentimental Label die-namic and sponged the edges with antique Linen distress ink. I used circle punches and Cherry Cobbler cardstock to create the circle opening. 

My ornaments were cut from patterned paper, the edges sponged and rhinestones added. They were adhered with pop dots over Maraschino twine. 


The sentiment from the Christmas Ornaments set was stamped in Fired Brick distress ink and lastly I stamped one of the small snowflake images on the top and bottom of the tags.


Did you know MFT Die-namics will now be available seperately from the stamp sets? I love having the matching stamps - but this is great when you want extra dies - I'll be grabbing extras of this set so I can quickly cut out a bunch of the ornament hangers!
