First up today is this sweet little Pure Innocence. I did a watercolor wash background on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors, cut the sentiment opening with Stitched Rectangle Word Windows Die-namics, added the sentiment, and popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam mounting tape after adding a strip of Subtle Plaids Paper Pack down the right side. I stamped all of the images—limb is from previously released Harvest Buddies and the birdie is from the soon-to-be-released Springtime Critters—on X-Press It Blending Card with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored with Copic markers, paper pieced her dress with Dots & Stripes Confection Paper Pack, and popped them up on foam tape.

To complete my scene I added a Pineapple card stock sun cut with Blueprints 21 Die-namics and Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock.

Up next is Cuddle Koalas. How cute are they???

I started by cutting an opening with Stitched Dome STAX Die-namics and added a background that was sponged on Smooth White card stock with, top to bottom, Blue Breeze dye ink, Lemon Chiffon dye ink, and Orange Fizz die ink. I adhered it with foam mounting tape for dimension and added it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base after adding a strip of Dots & Stripes Bright Paper Pack and a narrow strip of Black Licorice card stock.

The images were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating dies, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on foam tape. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 27 Die-namics, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and adhered to the card with foam tape.

And that’s it for Day Three of MFT’s April Release Countdown! Thanks SO much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Two!
