Welcome to Day 1 of the August release teasers with My Favorite Things! Through Wednesday the team will be previewing the new sets and products (leading up to the release Wednesday night at 10 p.m. EST), but we’re adding in some extra fun this month — TEASER PRIZES!
We will be giving away NINE new stamp sets this week! For each day of teasers, there will be a prize hidden on one of the designer’s blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win a free new release set! A winner will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog before tomorrow’s teaser list goes live and will be posted on Kim’s blog HERE. You can play along each day for your chance to win. As always, you can find the master list of participating designers HERE on Kim’s blog. Today’s prize is a How Does Your Garden Grow set. Be sure to check tomorrow to see if YOU are the winner.
Today the team is previewing two new sets, Clearly Sentimental about Gardens and How Does Your Garden Grow. My sample uses the second (and two fab new Die-namics die-cuts)!
You’re Quite Contrary
I stamped ‘Mary’ onto a cream MFT Perfect Paper Panel, paper-pieced her dress, placing a pop dot beneath the bottom edge of her dress. The remainder was colored with markers. I then cut her out and tucked her among her garden of pink blooms.
I cut out the blooms and leaves using one of the new Die-namics releases, Flower and Leaf Trio.
Along the bottom of my card, I used another of the new Die-namics dies, Small Scallop Border. I cut three strips of the small scallops and alternately layered them.
(You can click on the thumbnails to see the dies in a larger format.)
My card is pulling double-duty today as it’s also a sample for this month’s Guest Designer Challenge hosted by Yours Truly and my (mostly) super-sweet friend and fellow DT member, Jody. Click HERE to find all the details about becoming MFT’s next Guest Designer!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow…and the next day, and the next day…
