I have a couple of cards to show you today. First up I’m using Springtime Critters and Springtime Critters Die-namics for a cute little scene. I started by sponging my sky using a template cut with Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics and Blue Breeze dye ink on Sweet Tooth card stock. I popped that up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam mounting tape after stamping the sentiment, adding a strip of the new Dots & Stripes Bright Paper Pack, and tying around some baker’s twine.

I stamped the images with Black Licorice hybrid ink on X-Press It Blending Card, cut them out with the coordinating dies, and colored them with Copic markers. I added Grassy Edges Die-namics cut from Green Room card stock, popped the images up on foam, and was done! What a toad-ally happy card!

Next up,
Springtime Blooms on a CAS design.

This card also started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I trimmed down more Sweet Tooth card stock and sponged my background using Berrylicious dye ink and Sour Apple dye ink. Next I dry embossed a frame using Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX Die-namics and adhered it to the base with foam tape. I cut the new Oval Word Window Frames Die-namics from Brushed Gold card stock and popped it up on the sentiment, then adhered it to the card front.

The images were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut out with the matching dies, and colored with Copic markers. I popped them up on the card front and finished off with sequins.

And that’s it for Day Five of
MFT’s April Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Four!
