I’m a Happy Camper When I’m with You–Three Days Until MFT’s August Release!

Hello! And welcome to Day Three of
MFT’s August Release Countdown!! Only three days until the release on August 11 at 10am Eastern!!! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing SY Happy Campers Stamp Set, SY Happy Campers Die-namics, A2 Circle STAX Die-namics, Petite Clouds Die-namics (previous Free with $60), Lined by Hand Background Stamp, and All Lined Up Diagonally Background Stamp.

How adorable is this camp site scene?? This guys are having a blast in the great outdoors. For this card I started with my sky. I stamped the mountains and masked them off while I sponged the sky with Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot Distress Inks. Once that was done I coated it with Ranger Mini Glaze so I could get the sharp stars with slightly watered-down white craft paint, and stamped the sentiment.  Then I colored the mountains and finished the scene with Jellybean card stock cut with Grassy Hills Die-namics and Kraft card stock cut with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

All of the images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and then popped up into the scene with foam tape.

This was so much fun to make! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT’s August Release Countdown!
