My Favorite Things Teaser Time – Day 1

April Teaser 3 close-up

Woohoo, I’m doin’ the happy dance to-day  because it’s time to kick off the new release Teasers for My Favorite Things, and I couldn’t be more excited to be Guest Designer this month and get to share with you!

TeaserTime_FullSize

First, a few details…

-The new release products will be available at My Favorite Things on April 9th at 10:00 PM EST.

-Be sure to visit the MFT Blog for more release details, prize information, and inspiration!

 

Now, I got a little crazy with all the wonderful goodies that I received so I have not one, not two, but THREE things to share with you today!  Grab a beverage and settle in with me for a little while, please!  :)

First thing, I’m so excited to show you!  I recently transferred to a new job at the hospital, and now have my own desk so I just had to create a little something to pretty up my space.  Check out my new Spring banner!

April Teaser 1

This really brightens up my dull (I swear it’s military issue!) desk and plain white walls, for sure!  The pennants were made with the largest of the regular Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics, so this isn’t really big but just right for the metal shelf above my desk, hanging above my computer monitor.  The letters here were made with the brand spankin’ new Bottom Line Alphabet Die-Namics, and I embellished with a variety of other Die-Namics, too.  Also featured here that’s brand spankin’ new are Lisa Johnson’s new Sweet Roses stamps and Roses and Leaves Die-Namics on the P, I and G flags, and at the top of each flag you’ll see a green strip that comes from the new Blueprints 2 Die-Namics!  I just LOVE the fact that a lot of the new Blueprints dies have a faux-stitch feature built into them!  It’s so cute!  Other Die-Namics used will be linked at the end of my post.

Here’s are some close-ups of the flags…

April Teaser 1-4

(The tag here on the letter G also comes from the new Blueprints 2 Die-Namics!)

Next up is another item for my desk.  Even though I’m still learnin’ the ropes in the new job, there are times when I could just stand to take a deep breath and think…

April Teaser 2

“Serenity Now!”  (One of my most favorite Seinfeld episodes EVER!)  This new little Pure Innocence “Serenity” stamp set is practicing her yoga, and I colored and paper-pieced the image and put it in a magnetic acrylic frame for that shelf above my desk, as well.  The layout for this piece is based on the Guest Designer sketch for May (good luck to whoever wins… you’ll think it’s Christmas, really and truly!)  Other Die-Namics used here will be linked at the end of my post.

Here’s a photo of both pieces now, in place at my desk… some sun glare because (glory be to God!) I even have a window now, too!  :)

Finally, I have a card to share with you…

April Teaser 3

My card uses the new Sweet Roses stamp set again, and the new Roses and Leaves Die-Namics, PLUS the new Laina Lamb Mod Borders stamps!  This was a fairly quick card to create, and so not my usual style but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!  I hope you like it, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today!  I have a lot more to share with you in the coming days as well, so be sure and stop by again!

Happy stamping!
