Need a Hug?–MFT June Release Countdown, Day Two


Hey, there! I’m back today with Day Two of MFT’s June Release Countdown! Today we’re previewing PI Sending Big Hugs Die-namics, PI Sending Big Hugs Stamp Set, Joy Ride Die-namics, and LLD Accent It - Days of the Week Die-namics. Remember release is tomorrow night, June 10th, at 10pm. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog today for all of today’s details.


Boy, am I happy and I suspect you all will be, too! Did you notice that this Pure Innocence stamp set has a coordinating Die-namics die?!! How stinkin’ AWESOME is this??!! No need to fussy cut this girlie!! Can I get a WOOT!!?  

My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, to which I added a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Gingham Background and Wild Cherry ink. I love to stamp up a sheet and use bits and pieced of it in my designs. One of these days I’m going to sit down and stamp up all kind of background combinations ‘cause I love to just reach into my stash and pull out something to use.

Anyway, Then I trimmed down another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock and stenciled it all over with Large Polka Dots Stencil and Versamark, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. It gives just a subtle pattern that’s perfect when you don’t want too much interfering with your focal image. Then I added some new Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Steel Gray card stock, Wild Cherry card stock, and some Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Striped Backgrounds and Steel Gray ink from my stash. I stitched across the top of them and popped up the panel on the card base with foam tape. Then I cut the PI Sending Big Hugs Die-namics from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped PI Sending Big Hugs with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and colored her with Copic markers. All I had to do then was pop her up on foam. Easy peasy! The sentiment was stamped on Steel Gray card stock with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, then popped up on foam, as well.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.


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