Celebrate In Color–MFT February Release Countdown, Day One


Hello and welcome to the final day of MFT February Release Countdown! Release is tonight at 10pm so set your clocks! Get all the details at the MFT Blog. Today we’re previewing Large Desert Bouquet Stamp Set, Large Desert Bouquet Die-namics, Desert Bouquet Die-namics, Rainbow of Happiness Stamp Set, Color the Rainbow Die-namics - Free with $60, and Stitched Rainbow Die-namics.

If you are a fan of Desert Bouquet stamp set you are going to be very happy today :) Not only is MFT releasing Desert Bouquet Die-namics to go with the already released set, but now we have a choice of size--Large Desert Bouquet and Large Desert Bouquet Die-namics. Woohoo!! I love a choice—and sometimes you might want to use them together—I know I will.

My card today uses only Large Desert Bouquet and Large Desert Bouquet Die-namics, set into and onto a square frame made with Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX Die-namics. Now you can make lots of different sizes of frames :)

I started with a 4 1/4” square card base cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. Then I stamped flowers from Large Desert Bouquet on the card front, masking where needed. Then I cut out a frame with Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX Die-namics, replaced the inner square and popping up the “frame” on foam mounting tape.


The stamped images provided a base for the flowers cut with
Large Desert Bouquet Die-namics and stamped with the same colors—some of the original images are peeking out from under the die cut images, giving it a fuller look. The sentiment is from Rainbow of Happiness, stamped with Black Licorice dye ink.

And that’s it for MFT’s February Release Countdown! See you tonight for New Product Launch!!
