MFT July Release Countdown, Day One


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s July Release Countdown! We’re almost there! Release is tomorrow night, July 10, at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today to get all the details. Today we’re previewing Painted Prints Stamp Set, Painted Prints Die-namics, Brushstroke Expressions Stamp Set, Flower Vase Die-namics - previous kit Free with $60, Happy Birthday Balloon Trio Die-namics, Gift Bags Die-namics, and Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set.


I’m using Brushstroke Expressions Stamp Set and Gift Bag Die-namics for my card today. Simple design but I love how it turned out. I sponged the background and stamped the sentiment, then popped it up on foam on the base with a strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper across the bottom.


I created my gift bags from Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Patterned Paper, added handles (double on a couple of them) and adhered them with foam tape for dimension and finished off with some matching Sprinkles. All supplies used are listed below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back tomorrow for New Product Release!
