Welcome to MFT teasers - day 3!  Today we're giving you a little sneak peek at Pearls of Wisdom and Clearly Sentimental About Romance, which is this month's Triple Scoop Set.


The Triple Scoop reward is a full-sized stamp set offered to you absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase of $60 or greater (before shipping and tax).  The set changes with each monthly release, and is not yet available for individual purchase, so there is always a good reason to spoil yourself with MFT!
  • Simply add the Triple Scoop product to your cart using the add to cart button, and it will be shipped with your order.
  • The Triple Set set can be combined with our Cherry on Top promotion as well for even greater savings!
  • PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to add Triple Scoop sets to your order once it is placed.  You will not receive it unless it is added to your cart.

My first card is Pearls of Wisdom, which was last month's Triple Scoop set.  I started with Crate Paper - Paper Heart papers and stamped the sentiment on the Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels and added a few Bliss pearls from Kaisercraft.  The flourishes were cut out with the Fancy Flourish Die-namics and then I added a few Fringed Perennial centers around the corner of the Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics


This is Clearly Sentimental About Romance and I've added some fun Valentine's elements to my card.  First, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on one of the Layered Label Die-namics dies.  Then I added a few Rose pearls and the heart and "u" from Hearts a Plenty and By the Letters Die-namics.  The papers are My Mind's Eye - Love Me.

Don't forget to stop on by Kim's blog for a list of all the designers participating in today's teasers.










Thanks for stopping by!
