MFT September Release Countdown, Day Three


Welcome to Day Three of MFT’s September Release Countdown! We’re moving right along! Remember that release is on September 4th at 10am Eastern so make a note! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing PI Sending Blessings Stamp Set, PI Sending Blessings Die-namics, Sending Prayers Stamp Set, Prayers Die-namics, Playful Giraffes Stamp Set, and Playful Giraffes Die-namics.


I decided this gorgeous Die-namics sentiment only need a pretty background to set it off so I did one of my alcohol ink backgrounds. I fully intended to do a video of the process but apparently FORGOT to start the camera. Duh! I had a lot of interest in another background on Instagram so I did this video instead. Different colors but the technique is identical.

So, I created the background, adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, and then made a frame for it using more Sweet Tooth card stock and Elegant Rectangles STAX Die-namics, popped up on foam.


The sentiment, from Sending Prayers Stamp Set, was heat embossed on a strip of Black Licorice card stock and also popped up on foam. Prayers Die-namics was cut from Silver Sparkle card stock, layered with two copies cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, and adhered to the sentiment strip and the frame. To finish off I added some matching Sprinkles.

And that’s all I have for you today for Day Three of MFT’s September Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow for Day Two!
