Halfway to the Big Day—Three Days Until MFT’s July Release!

Hey there and welcome to Day Three of
MFT’s July Release Countdown!! Three more days until Release on July 7th at 10am Eastern! Make a note and be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing Best Friends in the Universe Stamp Set, Best Friends in the Universe Die-namics, Blast Off Die-namics, Show Me Your Stripes Stencil, and Window Panes Stencil.

So, as soon as I saw Blast Off Die-namics I KNEW I would do an interactive design! I mean, how cute is this???? It just had to SOAR, right?? So to begin, cut out the rocket and assembled it because I needed to know exactly how big it would be on the card front to judge placement of the slider channel. Once that was assembled, I sponged the background using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once dry, I spattered some white craft paint for stars. I cut Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock for the rocket vapor and used foam tape for dimension and space for movement.

I cut the background with Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and popped it up with foam tape, creating a channel for Interactive Tabs Die-namics, stamped with Interactive Labels Stamp Set and then assembled the card front elements.

Once the mechanism was assembled and working properly, I added images from Best Friends in the Universe Stamp Set and Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and finished off with some glitter enameled dots.

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