Congratulations, Love Birds–MFT March Release Countdown, Day One


Hello and welcome to the last day of MFT’s March Release Countdown! Release is tonight at 10pm! Be sure to check by teh MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing Tweet Friends Stamp Set, Tweet Friends Die-namics, Cheerful Cages Die-namics, Kind Thanks Stamp Set, Twice the Thanks Die-namics, and Thick & Thin Paper Pack.

I am loving these birdies! I think they will be really versatile for designing fun cards! My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, which I covered with Thick & Think Paper Pack in the black stripe—soooooooo elegant! Then I created a “window” or sorts, using Stitched Oval Scallop Frames Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock with the back made from Ranger Water color paper on which I did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors. The frame was popped up on foam mounting tape, I adhered the whole thing to the card front and popped up Cheerful Cages Die-namics, cut from Brushed Gold card stock.


Next I created my “arrangement” at the bottom of the oval using Wild Greenery Die-namics cut from Brushed Gold card stock and Tweet Friends, stamped on X-Press It Blending Card cut with Tweet Friends Die-namics, stamped wtih Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored with Copic markers. Flowers and foliage from LJD Spring Wreath were added, stamped with Black Licorice dye ink, Cornflower dye ink, and Blye Breeze dye ink. Finally, the sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Dimensional Banners Die-namics and popped up across the top of the oval.

And there you have it!! The last day of
MFT’s March Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you tonight for the New Product Release!
