MFT October Die-namics Feature & Pep Rally 55

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 15, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the September MFT Die-namics Feature & Pre-Release Pep Rally! 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! The MFT 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.


For today's project, I chose to focus on the beautiful Die-namics Fall Leaves while incorporating lots of other MFT goodness!

I purchased the wooden heart home decor piece from a local craft store, removed the manufactured embellishments and gave it a new look.
The pretty leaves were cut using Die-namics Fall Leaves then stamped with coordinating images from the Thankful Leaves stamp set. To create the pumpkin, I used multiple dies from Die-namics Oval STAX Set 1 to cut canvas and quilt batting, colored using Distress Stain, stitched around the perimeter of each oval, then adhered it to the wooden heart. The stalk was made using a  Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and the pretty Natural Card Stock flourishes were cut using Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish.
 I added a few cardstock pine cones (see post/video HERE) that were made using Die-namics Mini Royal Roses.
I stamped a sentiment from Thankful Leaves on a die cut made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die and added a pretty die cut made using a die from Die-namics Framing Flourishes.
Shown below are the Die-namics that I used on my card today that are included in the October release:



Here are the details about the upcoming release:
You can attend the New Release Party on October 16 from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can WIN PRIZES!
The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on October 16 at 10 PM EST. You'll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
