Happy Birthday–MFT September Release Replay


Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you!

Hey there! I try to use products that I might not have had a chance to use as much as I would have liked during Release Countdown for this post so I decided to see if I could put a different spin on Split Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics. I’m really loving this product so expect to see it in the future :)

To begin, I applied a watercolor wash on
Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush. After it dried, I stamped it with Distressed Patterns and Black Licorice hybrid ink and Delicata Gold pigment ink. I used a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut the watercolored panel and a Black Licorice card stock panel with Split Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics and adhered the black on to the card base.


I left some random spaces blank, then, with foam mounting tape, I popped up black sections randomly, then recreated the watercolored panel, also popped up on foam. Next I cut Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and popped it up, added a bundle of gold thread, and a Gold Shine card stock Happy Birthday Die-namics. Part of a sentiment from Twice the Wishes was stamped with Versamark on Lush Lagoon card stock, cut with Blueprints 22 Die-namics, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped up as well. I finished off with a few gold glitter enamel dots.

And that’s it for my entry into
MFT’s September Release Replay. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
