Stay Tuned! We Have More in Store—Four Days Until MFT’s September Release!

Hey, there and welcome to Day Four of
MFT’s September Release Countdown!! Release is in four days, September 8th at 10am, Eastern. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set, Christmas Cardinals Die-namics, Holly Jolly Cardinals Die-namics, Personalized Tags Die-namics, and Buffalo Plaid Background Stamp.

Oh, MY!! I can’t even with these cardinals!! I love cardinals so much and am so happy to have some to work with! As a Virginian, the cardinal is our state bird and we always have them at our feeders—such gorgeous birds! I’m truly over the moon delighted with these products this month>

So, I used Holly Jolly Cardinals Die-namics and had so much fun putting them together! To begin, I created my background using the also new Micro Edge Clouds Stencil—such dainty clouds, right?? I used Berrylicious dye ink for this and then popped that panel up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The cardinals and branches were cut out from a bunch of colors of card stock (see list below) and assembled them into super adorable birdies perched on their branches.

I wanted the cardinals to be the focal point of this card so the only other thing I did was to stamp the sentiment from Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set at the bottom with Extreme Black hybrid ink.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today. See you back tomorrow for Day Three of MFT’s September Release!
