MFT September Release Countdown, Day Five


Welcome to Day Five of MFT’s September Release Countdown! Release is on September 4th at 10am so mark your calendars now. And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Sassy Pants Best Friends Stamp Set, Friendly Raccoons Stamp Set, Friendly Raccoons Die-namics, Mod Birds Stamp Set, Mod Birds Die-namics, Double Slider Loops Slots Die-namics, Black & White Dots Patterned Paper, and the September Freebie Set - Cactus set.


There are a lot of super fun sentiments in this set but I kept going back to this one so I designed my card around it. I thought an image from Monster Sized Stamp Set might be “not normal” enough to work so after creating my sky background by sponging, top to bottom, After Midnight, Cornflower, and Blue Breeze dye inks, I added a “hallo” of Sweet Tooth pigment ink, then added stars with some Copic Opaque White and a drop or two of water. I then added the “moon”, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped with Distressed Patterns and Grout Gray dye ink, popped up on foam.


My monster and two planets from BB Space Explorer Stamp Set, were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut out, then popped up on foam. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips.

And there you have it for Day Five of MFT’s September (OMG, that’s hard to type!) Release Countdown! See you back tomorrow for Day Four!
