Celebrate–MFT July Release Countdown, Day Two


Hi, there, and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s July Release Countdown! Today we’re featuring Brushstroke Birthday Stamp Set, Birthday Wishes & Balloons Stamp Set, Birthday Wishes & Balloons Die-namics, Birthday Balloons Die-namics, Balloon Strings Background, Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics, and Birthday Present Die-namics. Remember that tomorrow night, July 7th at 10pm, is release! Get all the details at the MFT Blog.


I had a ton of fun combined a bunch of today’s featured products on this card. I started with a Kraft card stock base and stamped Balloon Strings Background with Black Licorice dye ink. Then, on a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock I stamped the sentiment from Brushstroke Birthday stamp set with Black Licorice dye ink using my MISTI to get a bold image. I masked off the sentiment with some sticky note tape and stenciled on white embossing paste with Star Celebration Stencil. While that was drying I cut and assembled Birthday Present Die-namics, cut from the new Plaid Patterns Paper Pack and Sour Apple card stock. Here you can see the dimension it has when assembled—I cocked the top off for this card but it’s made a tiny bit larger so it can be used as a “real” top if you want. So CUTE!!


I added some translucent vellum “tissue paper” and then created a balloon explosion coming out of the box using Birthday Balloons Die-namics and Sweet Tooth card stock for the strings along with Daffodil card stock, Blu Raspberry card stock, Sour Apple card stock, and Ripe Raspberry card stock for the balloons. I finished off by adding some glitter paper stars, cut with Blueprints 25 Die-namics adhered to a few stenciled stars.

And there you have it: Day Two of MFT’s July Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the last day of the Countdown!
