MFT Teasers - More Essential Sentiments!

TGIF and Happy New Year's Eve! We're taking the kids to see Disney on Ice this afternoon and then off to a friend's house to ring in 2011. But right now, I'm excited for you to see Day 1 of this month's MFT Teasers. You may have noticed that we've rolled everything back a day. Teasers now start on Friday and new stamps will be released on the first Tuesday of the month, as opposed to the first Wed. Also, the teaser post will be up on the MFT blog at midnight, so you can pop over there now to see links to all the designers sharing projects today!

I'm over the moon with this new stamp set and Die-Namics die. More Essential Sentiments is the sequel to Essential Sentiments and is sized nice and large and was especially designed to compliment the new Layered Label Die. Here I've used one of my most requested sentiments and paired it with some October Afternoon patterned papers. If you look closely, you'll also see a peek of the new Mini Rolled Roses - aren't they fabulous?! I love these new sizes and will be using them everywhere!
I finished the inside of the card off with another of the More Essential Sentiments as well as the Flower Border and the Small Scallop Border.

My second card does double duty, both as a teaser for the new Clearly Sentimental About Time set (this month's Triple Scoop set), and as my sample for this month's Guest Designer contest. Julie and I are hosting this month and our theme is "2011 - It's a Banner Year"! Create a banner or project with a banner. Use the Die-Namics banner dies, paper with banners, or a sentiment banner. Alternatively, show us your interpretation - what will 2011 bring for you?

I used some banner paper (MME) as well as the Banner Strip Die. I also used this particular sentiment on purpose - one of my goals for 2011 is to be a better steward of my time, and this is a timely reminder. I hope you'll play along with us! All the details can be found in the MFT forum over on Splitcoast. You could win all of next month's release and the chance to play along with the design team.
A couple of quick details about my card, I used the Framed Greetings die as well as the Perfect Petal trio die, and the arrow from the Game Night Spinner die.

DON'T FORGET - make sure to leave comments on all the designer's blogs. Two of the new stamp sets are given away each day from two different blogs. The winners will be posted the following day on the MFT blog. And mark your calendar for our release party - Tuesday Jan. 4th at 10pm EST.
Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow for another teaser!
