MFT May Release Countdown Day 3

April 30, 2017

Welcome to Day 3 of the MFT May Release Countdown!

My card for today features the Seaside Seagulls stamp set & Die-namics and the Ocean Waves Die-namics.

I love these seagulls! They're simple yet so cute.
I cut my wave panels from Blue Breeze and Blue Yonder card stock and vellum using the Ocean Waves Die-namics. I stamped the Blue Breeze panel with the Pinstripe Background and added white spots to the vellum panel with a white gel pen. I adhered the panels to the card base, added a strip of Poppy card stock along the bottom edge, then tucked in the seagulls. I added a few eyelashes to the right one so that it looks like a girl.


I used the Oval Word Window Frames Die-namics for my sentiment panel and popped up only the inside panel with foam tape. I added a couple of clouds and several Clear Droplets to complete the scene, and rounded the bottom corners of the card base. 

Make sure that all the new products will be available for purchase on May 2nd at 9:00 pm EDT.

MFT May Release Countdown Day 4

April 29, 2017

It's Day 4 of the MFT May Release Countdown, and it means the day I introduce my new stamp set & Die-namics to you! :D

I heard that some of the MFT customers were waiting for a mermaid themed stamp set from Birdie Brown line and I had been wanting to make it, too. I finally got an opportunity to make it happen! :)



The Mermazing stamp set includes three mermaids and several accessories to build an underwater scene, as well as a few aquatic critters. I'm sure that this stamp set and some other ocean themed products from this month's release go so well together! 

I have two cards to share with you today. The first one is relatively simple.

I stamped the Wavy Coloring Book Background to a watercolor paper panel and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I loosely added some watercolor wash and spatters using Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean). 

I stamped, colored, and die cut out the images, then adhered to the panel with foam tape. The sentiment was white embossed onto a Black Licorice panel cut with a die from the Blueprints 20 Die-namics. I added several sequins to finish off the card.

Next one is a shaker card.

I created my underwater scene on a watercolor paper panel using the emboss resist technique and adhered the panel to a card base. 


I die cut a Smooth White panel with the Blueprints 13 Die-namics, stamped it with the new Mermaid Tail Background (Love it!) using Sno Cone Premium Dye ink, and cut out a frame. I put some sequins and adhered the stamped panel with foam tape after applying a sheet of acetate to the opening, then added the frame and the images.


All the new products will be available for purchase on May 2nd at 9:00 pm EDT.
