MFT Teasers - Monogram Alphabet

Happy New Year's Eve to you!  Do you have big plans tonight for ringing in 2012?  We're actually going to see Mission Impossible in IMAX and then out for a bite.

We're back today with more MFT Teasers and we have two fabulous sets to share with you.  I chose to make a project with the new Monogram Alphabet.  The size and font of this clear alphabet are fabulous!  I've been wanting to make a banner for my house for a while now so took this chance to do it.  I love that paper banners are so easy to fold up and store - that's important to me because storage space is always at a premium!

I used the new Layered Heart Die-namics and again chose to stitch them together.  I used white embroidery floss for the  4 hearts with the word "love" and pink embroidery floss for the 2 end hearts.  I used all 6 strands of the floss because I wanted a nice thick, visible stitch.

I also cut some rosettes using the 3/8" Rosette Die-namics.  Because I didn't want them to cover the whole heart, I cut each rosette in half and made smaller ones.  


I stamped one of the circular border stamps that come in the set in black ink, and then the letters in red ink.  I cut my circles out with the small circle die from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics set.  It was a perfect fit.



For the two hearts on either end of my word, I cut a felt heart using the Hearts A Plenty Die-namic and stuck it in the middle of my rosette.
