Final Countdown - One Day Until MFT's April Release!!


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT's April Release Countdown! Release is tomorrow, April 13th, at 10am Eastern so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing Read Me like a Book Stamp Set, Read Me like a Book Die-namics, Bright Future Stamp Set, Bright Future Die-namics, Sprinkling You with Love Stamp Set, and Sprinkling You with Love Die-namics.

How sweet is this image??? VERY sweet, amiright?? I couldn't wait to paper piece her shirt so I stamped the image three times with Extreme Black hybrid ink, twice on No Line Coloring card stock and once on Birthday Brights Paper Pad. The patterned paper and one of the others were stamped partially: only the area I needed :) The image was cut with the coordinating Die-namics and colored with Copic markers. The shirt was cut out and the book image also colored with Copics and cut out. Once all that was done I adhered the shirt first and then the books. IRL there's a lot of dimension which is what I was going for.

Next I added a panel of Black & White Stripes Paper Pad, then a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on which I'd spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and when dry, went over it with Moroccan Spice dye ink. I popped it up at a wonky angle with foam tape and tied with baker's twine. 

I added two strips of patterned paper across the bottom along with the sentiment, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips and also popped up on foam. The image was adhered with foam, as well, for the finish.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the December MFT and Friends Feature!

  1. Your brick wall is fabulous to add color and texture. Reminds me of my school days as I was a big reader and all of my schools were constructed from brick.

  2. Super cute card! Love this layout. I am so glad to see more school related images.

  3. Beautiful card! Love what you did with layering the banners.
