My Favorite Things Teaser Time - At The Movies

Hello again my darling friends!!  I am having the best week here with the fabulous design team at MFT.  I am overwhelmed at the amazing creations that all of the MFT artists are cranking out and consider myself lucky to be creating alongside them.  
Just WAIT until you see what is in store for you today!  (squeal!)  This set - entitled - At The Movies is a combo stamp and Die-namics set.  Included in the set are six dies and a gigantic stamp set filled with sentiments as well as images.  Just so awesome!! 
I started by choosing my color scheme of red, black grey and white.  Not sure why but that's how my creative dice were rolling that day.  ;)  My card base is a heavy sparkly white cardstock.  I then just started playing around with all of the different Die-namics that come with this set.  I started by cutting a bunch in a variety of cardstock colors.  But I then decided to coat some of them in either black, silver or clear embossing powder and make them really pop! 
As you can see on the left hand side, I stamped the row of stars three times over, coated in white embossing powder and heat set.  On top of that I added a sweet cluster of the director's board, a felt heart from my Notched Tag Die-namics, and I stamped the number two to symbolize the love story between two people. 
My main panel that holds my sentiment, is first stamped on the interior piece of the First Class Friends stamp set.  Which just so happens to be a teeny bit smaller than the center piece of the film strip that comes in this set - again...there's that genius I was talking about in my earlier Teaser posts about Kim and her design team creating lots of the different sets that work so well and literally fit together!  LOVE THIS!!  Anything to add another layer is great by me! (wink!)  
I added some stitching, a pearly flourish and a large, black Grosgrain bow and the front of my card was happy.  
For my interior, I reached for my tag from the Tag You're It set.  I use this set CONSTANTLY!!  I love and adore it!!  (go ahead...put it on your list...I'll wait....)  

Done?  Ok let's keep going.  I stamped my sentiment onto red cardstock and added the striped director's bar stamp on top and bottom.  I tied my tag with some yummy yarn and set it aside.  I threaded some natural twine through the film reel adding a pretty bow to finish it off and snuggled a red polka dotted heart from my Hearts-A-Plenty Die-namics set right on top creating a little grouping to pull the interior all together. 

I want to thank you all for popping by today to check out my creation!  I hope you're planning something very fun for New Year's Eve!  Don't forget to come by tomorrow as I'll have something entirely new to share with you!!
