Bright Idea–MFT Release Countdown, Day Two


Hi, there, back today with Day Two of MFT’s May Release Countdown! Today we’re previewing Watt's Up? stamp set, Lightbulb Die-namics, Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me Die-namics (May’s Free with $60 set), and All Lined Up Stencil. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and remember release is tomorrow night, May 13th, at 10pm.


What a fun set this is!! So many cool and useful sentiments! My card starts with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and uses several elements from Blueprints 15 Die-namics, also available tomorrow night at 10pm. I added a Black Licorice card stock layer, then the wonky element, stamped with Grid Background and Black Licorice Hybrid ink on Sweet Tooth card stock and popped up on foam. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of Banana Split card stock and slipped under the edge of the wonky element.

Next I created my light bulb. I cut it out twice, once with Banana Split card stock and then with vellum backed with an Adhesive Sheet. If you don’t have any of this stuff you need it. It is so great for small die cuts or something like vellum where you don’t want the adhesive to show. I sandwiched in the filament, which was cut from Steel Gray card stock and the cap was made with silver and black glitter papers. To finish it off, I added some Sequins Die-namics, cut from silver mirror card stock.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the last day of Release Countdown for May!
