Have a Sunshiny Birthday–MFT July Release Countdown, Day Five

Hey there! It’s that time again!!!
MFT’s July Release is just around the corner and today is the Day Five of Release Countdown!! Today we’re previewing Sunshine & Friendship Stamp Set, Sunshine & Friendship Die-namics, BB Drink Up the Sunshine Stamp Set, BB Drink Up the Sunshine Die-namics, Swimming Pool Die-namics, Swimming Pool Shaker Pouches, and Twist & Turn Die-namics. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details and for more inspiration from the design team.

How stinkin’ adorable is this cutie??? OMGosh, I wish I were in that very refreshing-looking pool with her! I decided to set my pool in a back yard with grass but added an edging around it by cutting the pool out again with Cement Gray card stock and fussy cutting the embossed rim, then adhered it on top of the green. I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor paper for the shaker background and filled it with a fun sequin mix along with some Silver Shimmer seed beads.

Next I stamped the images on No Line Color Card Stock with Extreme Black Hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. I couldn’t resist giving her some rainbow framed shades!!! Isn’t she just the coolest?? I adhered the images and the embossed sentiment with foam tape for dimension and was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow for Day Four of MFT’s July Release Countdown!
