Countdown Kickoff - Five Days Until MFT's July Release!

 


Hello and welcome to Day Five of MFT's July Release Countdown! Release is in five days, July 12th, at 10am Eastern so make a note! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing YUZU Eat Lots of Cake Stamp Set, YUZU Eat Lots of Cake Die-namics, YUZU Purr-fect Birthday Stamp Set, YUZU Purr-fect Birthday Die-namics, Frosted Alphabet Die-namics, Frosted Alphabet Die-namics, and Balloon Party Stencil.






For today's card I'm using YUZU Purr-fect Birthday Stamp Set and YUZU Purr-fect Birthday Die-namics for a CAS card. To begin, I prepared my background sponging Lazy Day and Kraft dye inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, spattered with water, stamped the sentiment using Extreme Black hybrid ink, and adhered it to a white card stock base with foam tape.




Next I stamped the images on Copic-friendly paper with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. The gift box and the cutie's overhauls were paper pieced with paper from Happy Patterns Patterned Paper then popped up on the card front with foam tape.




And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four of MFT's July Release Countdown!

Sweet Birthday Wishes - Color Throwdown Challenge #700

 


Hey there, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she has a yummy color palette picked out for us! Hope to see you playing along with us this week!






I was totally inspired by the inspiration piece for this card. To begin, I covered a white card stock card base with Poppin' Polka Dots Patterned Paper. Next I sponged some Strathmore Bristol paper with Kraft and Orange Zest dye inks, stamped the sentiment from Sugar-Coated Sentiments Stamp Set with Vintage Timber dye ink and popped this panel up on the card base with foam tape.




Next I cut Frosted Cupcake Die-namics from Orange Zest, Butterscotch, Kraft, and Vintage Timber card stocks, assembled it, and popped it up on foam tape.




To finish off I added some glitter enamel dots and was done!

Spread Your Wings - Color Throwdown Challenge #699

 



Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week Miss Vickie is our hostess and she's challenging us to this cool color palette. Hope to see lots of you playing along!






For my card today I started by applying a watercolor wash to Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors using the challenge colors. Once dry, I spattered with some black acrylic ink and set aside to finish drying.





Next I stamped the butterflies from Spread Your Wings Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock and cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics.

The watercolored panel was adhered to a white card stock base, then Leafy Layer Cover-Up was cut from white card stock and adhered directly to that




The sentiment from the set was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam, as were the stamped butterflies for the finish.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have.

Hello, Sweet Friend - Color Throwdown Challenge #698

 



Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! Lynn is our hostess this week and she has a decidedly Summer color palette for us. Hope to see lots of you playing along with us this week!






I love the recently-released Chevron Stripes Die-namics from MFT and decided it would be a perfect way to showcase these colors. So, to begin, I cut them from four colors of Colorful Canvas Patterned Paper and adhered them directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, then adhered that to a Sweet Tooth card stock base using foam tape.




Next I cut Sweet Hello Die-namics from Black Licorice and Sweet Tooth card stocks, adhered them together, and popped it up on the chevrons with foam tape. The rest of the sentiment is from Well, Hello Stamp Set and was heat embossed and popped up on foam as well.





To finish off I added some matching glitter enamel dots and called it done!

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have.

The surf board was cut from MSTN Hip, Hip, Yay Patterned Paper with a white card stock layer for strength. These were all then popped up on the card front with foam tape.
