Are You Ready? Two Days Until MFT's February Release!


Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT's December Release Countdown! Release is in two days, February 16th, at 10am Eastern so make a note! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing Fast-Track Friends Stamp Set, Fast-Track Friends Die-namics, Fast Track Die-namics, Balloon Bouquet Stamp Set, Balloon Bouquet Die-namics, and Party Balloons Die-namics.

I do love a bunch of balloons, don't you! Balloon Bouquet Stamp Set and Die-namics can be either colored or covered with card stock, which makes them super easy to construct and use on a project. I'm using the card stock method with my card today and I wanted to give it a really special background so came up with this design.

To begin, I created the sky at the top with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Broken China Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. For the bottom, I heat embossed City Block Background on Black Licorice card stock with white detail embossing powder, trimmed out some buildings, and popped it up on foam.

Balloon Bouquet Stamp Set was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and covered with four colors of the new card stock: Butterscotch, Candied Yam, Fire Coral, and Caribbean Sea then also popped up on foam over the cityscape. To finish off I added a few Petite Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT's February Release Countdown!
