Happy Birthday - MFT January Vault Releases in Three Days!!


Hello and welcome to Countdown Day Three of MFT's January Vault Release! Release is on January 19th at 10am, Eastern so make a note! Today we're previewing BB You Gnome Me Stamp Set, BB You Gnome Me Die-namics, Friends Like Us Stamp Set, Friend Die-namics, and Birthday Centerpieces Die-namics. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details!

It's been a while since MFT release any Centerpieces Die-namics so I took advantage of this opportunity to play with one again. I always loved them and am so happy to see one back! Such an easy way to do a shaker element with an off-the-charts WOW factor!

To begin this card I heat embossed Peacock Pattern Background on Ranger Watercolor paper with gold detail embossing powder and applied a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors. I added some spatters, too using the two colors in the wash, gold acrylic ink, and clean water. 

Once dry, I created the shaker element, using clear card stock, foam tape, cardstock cut with Birthday Centerpieces Die-namics, and sequins and seed beads. I closed it up and adhered it to a Black Licorice card stock.

To finish up I added a sentiment from Bitty Birthday Wishes, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips and popped it up on foam tape.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT's January Vault Countdown.
