MFT June Release Countdown, Day One


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s June Release Countdown!!! It’s here! Tonight is the night! Release is at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique so set your clocks! And be sure to drop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing LLD You're A-maze-ing Stamp Set, LLD Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, Maze Shapes – White, Maze Shapes – Black, Circle Shaker Pouches, Maze Spheres, Fairy Happy Stamp Set, and Fairy Happy Die-namics.


I have a couple of cards for you using today’s preview products, starting with this adorable fairy. I stamped the images with Black Licorice hybrid ink on X-Press It Blending Card, cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored them with Copic markers. Next I did a watercolor wash background using Peerless Watercolors on Ranger Watercolor Paper and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base. Next I added Stitched Oval Scallop Frames Die-namics cut from Brushed Gold card stock and popped up on foam mounting tape.


I popped the images up on foam then stamped the sentiment with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and also popped it up on foam.

My second card is super simple using
LLD You’re A-maze-ing.


To begin, I stamped the maze image on Sweet Tooth card stock with Grout Gray dye ink, some stamped off a bit to create a distressed look. Then I stamped it again, firmly, with Gravel Gray dye ink and added the trail with Black Licorice dye ink. The sentiment was also stamped with Gravel Gray dye ink.


I stamped the heart--and the arrow, from Interactive Labels—with Wild Cherry dye ink and the “Start” and “Finish” with Black Licorice dye ink. I popped that up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card base that I covered with Tiny Hearts Brights Paper Pack and it was done.

And that’s it for Day One of
MFT’s June Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember: release is tonight at 9pm—hope to see you back then!
