MFT July Release Countdown, Day Two


Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s July Release Countdown!!! It won’t be long now! Release is on July 10 at 9pm in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing I Heart Celebrating Stamp Set, Heart Balloons Die-namics - Free with $60, Birthday Balloon Die-namics - Free with every order, Safari Friends Stamp Set, Safari Friends Die-namics, Happy Birthday Block Die-namics, and Cross-Stitch Bookmark Die-namics.


I wanted to create a scene for the adorable hippo so I started by sponging a sunset sky using Orange Fizz and Peach Bellini dye ink, masking off the sun then inked it with Lemon Chiffon dye ink. I laid out my elements and stamped the sentiment. Then I added mountains cut with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and Steel Blue card stock and Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Stone Gray card stock. I wanted my hippo to be beside some water so I added Grassy Edges Die-namics cut from Jellybean Green card stock and water cut from Summer Splash card stock.


The images were stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on No Line Coloring card stock and colored with Copic markers before being added to the scene. Foam tape was used for dimension throughout.

That’s if for me today—thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow night for Day One of MFT’s July Release Countdown.
