I Hope Your Birthday Is Full of Sunshine–MFT June Release Countdown, Day Five


Hello and welcome to Day Five of MFT’s June Release Countdown! I’m sorry, did I just type JUNE????? Seriously???? Boy, is it just me or is this year is flying! ? One thing that definitely makes time fly is having fun playing with MFT products and this month is no different. Release is on June 5th at 9pm; be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Toucan Do It Stamp Set, Toucan Do It Die-namics, Wonky Banners Die-namics, Fill of Sunshine Stamp Set, Sunshine Shaker Die-namics, Circle Shaker Treat Pouches - previously released, Circle Shaker Pouches - previously released, Radiating Halftone Background, and Sunshine - Free with $60.


I just love this Sunshine Shaker Die-namics!!! So many things you could do with it but today I just wanted to make the sun shine! I started by covering a Sweet Tooth card stock panel with clouds using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, Blue Breeze Dye Ink, and a sponge dauber. Then I cut the Sunshine Shaker die out, reserving the “rays”. I cut it again from Sunshine, Daffodil, and Pineapple card stocks and then replaced the “ray’s with the cloud background.


Before I created my shaker element, I stamped the sentiment from Full of Sunshine Stamp Set. The shaker element has three yellow sequins in two sizes, Marshmallow Seed Beads, and yellow Prills. To close up the back I used the Sunshine center and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I used all three yellows and popped up the “rays”, alternating shades of yellow for some interest and contrast. I finished off with a couple of Puffy Clouds Die-namics and some Bumblebee Sprinkles.

And that’s it for Day Five of MFT’s June Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four!
