Welcome to MFT teasers - day 3!  Today I'm giving you a little sneak peek at Clearly Sentimental about Art, 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.


I am totally digging this new Artist Palette & Brush Die-namics set - oh my!  And it's SO perfect with Clearly Sentimental about Art too!  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die.  I ran the Artist Pallette & Brush Die-namics through my Vagabond with Black Licorice cardstock for the palette and then again for each of the rainbow colors.  HINT: keep all the little extra paint dollops in a little baggie for future use.   I added some Glossy Accents to the "paint" as well as the brush tip.  I layered the palette on a Designer Label 1 STAX Die-namics in Blue Raspberry cardstock.  The layout is SSS154.


I repeated the Glossy Accented paint on the inside of my card and added another fun sentiment from the set as well.

Here is another peek at the previous Triple Scoop Set - Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries



I used part of a sentiment for the tag and used the gorgeous Botanical Beauty Die-namics for the flower.  The decorative scallops are the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics and Double Scallop Border Die-namics.  The layout is from Got Sketch?

 
I repeated the same sentiment on the inside of the card, only this time I used the entire sentiment.

Don't forget to stop by the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers playing along in today's Teasers.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:







Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Laraine R said...

    Great cards! Love the new stamps & dies!

    PaperDoll said...

    With the first card, I love how you opted to create a black palette... it really sets off the paint splotches, and makes them pop against their dark background! TFS the idea about saving the extra die-cut splotches for the next project.

    PaperDoll said...

    I love the elegance and sophistication of the second card. My favorite aspect of it is the blossom created with the Botanical Beauty Die-namic. I really like the way you shaped the flower and gave it dimension by turning the petals upward and alternating each layer. The pearl in the center is the "crowning jewel!"

    Tangii said...

    Love both of these! Awesome use of all of those dies too!! :)

    Mary-Anne V said...
