Pretty Poppies

That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful
means that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence
than the course of a single life would lead us to believe.

MFT Pretty Poppies Blossom

Welcome everyone. I'm so excited. Today is Day #1 of the My Favorite Things Teaser Time – a week-long party revealing the newest products. And, holy smokes. You're in for some big treats, starting with this gorgeous set designed by Lisa Johnson, Pretty Poppies, and the new Blueprints Die-namics.

I did the research, really I did. I know poppies are traditionally red. Gorgeous, luscious red.

But, there really are pink poppies, too.

My Favorite Things Pretty Poppies

While I was making these two cards, I had visions of Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto, prancing through the poppy field. Poppies are such beautiful, mystical, and magical flowers.

Here's the inside of this card.

Thinking of You

This week we're revealing Blueprint #1. (Yes! There will be more!) Each set of Blueprint Die-namics includes building-block shapes but, and this is so crazy exciting, they also include design plans. You can follow any of the four sketches provided with Blueprint #1, or mix and match the elements to be your own architect. Just watch the MFT blog this week for more details and sneaky peaks of the design plans. 

This Pretty Poppies set is so gorgeous, and the Blueprint design plan made assembling this card so easy, well, I just couldn't stop. I made a second card.


Aren't the fonts freakin' gorgeous with this set? Here's the very simple inside of my second card.


Well, you know why they call this week Teaser Time, right? Because, as gorgeous and fun as these new products are, you can't buy them just yet. The My Favorite Things (MFT) release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on March 11 at 10:00 PM EST.  You'll find all the newest products HERE at release time.

Here are the sets we're revealing today. If you'd like to see all of the teasers just click on over to the MFT Blog. Be sure to leave comments as you visit the designers for the chance to win $10.00 gift certificates given away daily.

Finished size of both cards is 4-1/4" by 5-1/2".  The pattern paper is from Heidi Swapp's Vintage Chic 8" x 8" Paper Pack. I added a little Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Stickles (Rock Candy) to the blossoms.
