Nurse is Another Word for Hero - MFT August Release Countdown, Day One

Hi everyone and welcome to Day One of MFT’s August Release Countdown! Tomorrow’s the day! Release is at 10am Eastern so set your clocks! Today we’re previewing BB Call the Shots Stamp Set, BB Call the Shots Die-namics, BB Bedside Manner Stamp Set, and BB Bedside Manner Die-namics. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and more inspiration from the design team.

As a retired nurse, I squealed when I saw this set! It’s so adorable! I took one of the sentiments and built my design around it. First, I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers. Then I planned my card design around Impact Alphabet Die-namics spelling the word “NURSE”. I dry embossed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock with Star Celebration Stencil and popped it up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card base after added a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack across the bottom.

I sponged Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Electric Red dye ink, cut out the letters, and gave them some little accents with a white gel pen. I popped them up on foam, added the heat embossed sentiment strip, and adhered the image, also with foam tape. To finish off I added some stars, cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6.

And there you have it for Day One and the end of MFT’s August Release Countdown! Tomorrow, at 10am Eastern, all the cool things you’ve been seeing for the last five days will be available for purchase. Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for the August MFT & Friends feature!
