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.
