MFT July Card Kit, Bundle of Balloons Countdown Day Two


Hello and welcome back to Day Two of MFT’s July Card Kit Countdown. This month’s kit is Bundle of Balloons and features darling balloon stamps and sentiments and a versatile size of balloon Die-namics along with card stock and glitter paper. Release is tomorrow night, July 24th at 9pm. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and to see more samples using the kit.


For this card, I cut out a bunch of balloons from Ranger Watercolor Paper and colored them with Peerless Watercolors. Then I splattered them with clean water and after they dried with some black Liquitex acrylic ink. I arranged them on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel and hand drew the strings because I wanted them longer than the ones in the stamp set.


I adhered that to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and then heat embossed the sentiment on Heavyweight Vellum cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics matted with Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I popped that up on foam tape and finished off with some Sparkling Clear Mix Sequins.

And that’s it for Day Two of MFT’s July Card Kit Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow night for release!
