MFT September Countdown Release - Day 1!

It's almost time!  Only 24 more hours to go until the latest MFT Stamps Product Release becomes available!  This release is jam-packed with a ton of crafty goodies.  Do you have a favorite item that you can't wait to buy?

I have a beautiful Happy Birthday Script Die-namics to share with you today.  I absolutely love the font on this set.  It's so gorgeous!  I diecut it from a green sheet of the new Mermaid Glitter Card Stock.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's so shimmery and beautiful.

To start, I first stamped my images with black ink onto smooth white card stock and colored them with Copics.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I then blended some Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks onto a 4.25" x 5.5" sheet of smooth card stock and splattered it with some Opaque White Paint.

I added some balloons from the fun Bundle of Balloons Die-namics by diecutting some balloons from some smooth white card stock and blending them with Distress Inks.

  • Blue Balloon: Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean
  • Pink Balloon: Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry
  • Yellow Balloon: Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber
  • Green Balloon: Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn

I stamped the balloon strings from the Bundle of Balloons Stamp Set with some Steel Grey Ink.  Lastly, I made this into a fun but subtle shaker card by diecutting the birthday script into my panel, adding some clear acetate and 3D foam tape to the back of this panel along with some Sparkling Crystals for embellishment.  I then glued my green shimmery diecut on top of the acetate window in the front of the card.

Be ready!  All new products and product links will be available tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM EDT.  Stop by the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with!
