Oh, Nuts, I Missed Your Birthday - MFT August Release Countdown, Day Three

Hi there and welcome to Day Three of
MFT’s August Release Countdown! Today we’re previewing Squirrel! Stamp Set, Squirrel! Die-namics, Fabulous at Any Age Stamp Set, Simply Cheers Die-namics (Previous Free with $60), and Simply Celebrate Die-namics (Previous Free with $60). Remember, Release is on August 6th at 10 Eastern and be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and more inspiration from the amazing MFT Design Team!

I always love the August Release because FALL, my favorite season! Today I’m the adorable Squirrel! stamp set and Die-namics. To begin I sponged a background with Berrylicious dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I stamped the images on No Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers.

Then I cut Grassy Hills Die-namics from Gumdrop Green card stock, sponged the edges with Gumdrop Green dye ink and popped them up on foam on the card front after stamping the sentiment on the front panel. I added all the other scene elements and was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by for Day Three of MFT’s August Release Countdown! Hope to see you tomorrow for Day Two!
