MFT August Release Rewind


Hi, everyone! It’s time for this month’s Release Rewind! I love this feature since it gives the designers a great opportunity to use some products we might not have gotten around to using during the release or to delve deeper into some others. I’m really excited about this chance to be creative with the amazing new MFT products that are available right HERE, right NOW in the MFT Boutique. To get all the details, be sure to stop by the MFT Blog.


I have two cards for you today using the just-released MFT August products. My first card is another scene, this one with a bit of a twist. I decided to make this an eerie city scene :)

I again air brushed my background, this one with purple instead of blue, and here’s how I did it, using these Copic markers: Y04, YR15, BV01, and BV04.


To begin, I air brushed a little of the Y04 at the bottom of my Sweet Tooth card stock panel. Then I cut Skyline Border Die-namics from some scrap paper and positioned it where I wanted it to end up on the finished card. I did this because I wanted some of the yellow to look like lights shining from the windows.


Next I added some of the YR15 and BV01, working up the page.


Still working up the page, I started adding BV04 to darken the sky.


And still more until I got it like I wanted it.


When I removed the mask, I have an imprint of the skyline and I know exactly where to play the final version.


To complete my card, then, I cut Skyline Border Die-namics from Steel Gray card stock and Black Licorice card stock and offset them to add dimension. I matted my scene with Black Licorice card stock, tied around some baker’s twine and an Orange Fizz button, and popped it up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I added a Banana Split card stock moon, cut with a Circle STAX Die-namics, and a bat and “boo” sentiment from Spooky Scene Die-namics.

On the inside, I stamped an image from Trick or Treat and one from Spooky Sentiments.


My second card uses the AWESOME (I know, that word gets used waaaaaaay too much, but not when talking about this set!) Witch’s Cauldron Die-namics.


This card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next, on a piece of Grape Jelly card stock, I sponged Black Licorice ink using Small Checkerboard stencil and layered silver glitter paper that I cut with Spider Web Cover-Up Die-namics and popped them both up on the base on foam. Next I added the cauldron, cut from Black Licorice card stock, added the contents, cut from Sour Apple card stock, and silver glitter paper for the bubbles. The pumpkins and bat are from Witch Way Is the Candy? and Witch Way Is the Candy? Die-namics, stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers then popped up on foam. The spoon was cut from metallic silver card stock and the handle from Kraft card stock that was stamped with Chocolate Brown ink and Wood Plank background. The spider is from Centerpieces Spooky Window Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock and is hanging from silver cord. Silver glitter paper was used for the “steam” rising from the goop, and Copic marker-colored clear gems serve as the spider’s eyes.

A sentiment and pumpkin from Witch Way Is the Candy?
was added to the inside.


And that’s it for this month’s Release Rewind! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
