Friends at First Sip - MFT Release Countdown - Day 4

Hello crafty friends!  It's time to show you the latest Birdie Brown Stamp Set!  I can't tell you how much I love this set.  I totally love the theme and the images and can easily think of a few friends or family members of mine that this type of card would be perfect for.

For my card today, I combined the Friends at First Sip Stamp Set with the Boutique Die-namics Set.  This boutique set is super versatile in that you can pretty much create whatever type of boutique that you want but I went with a Coffee-themed boutique today.

For my images, I stamped them in Black Ink onto Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For the boutique wall, I simply blended some Gray Inks (Premium Dye Grout Gray, Cement Gray, and Gravel Gray) on top of the English Brick Wall Stencil and then used the wall section of the die-namics set to cut it out.  I die-cut the other pieces from Smooth White Card Stock and colored them with Copics.

I added a clear covering for the Boutique window using some acetate and I added a low-hanging light behind the window from the BB Our Story Stamp Set.

For my background, I blended some Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and spritzed the panel lightly with water before blotting it dry with a paper towel.  I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink and added a streetlight in the background using the Streelights Die-namics.

Stay tuned!  There are only 4 more days until this release becomes available!  Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see what amazing creations the rest of the team has created and to leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 MFT Gift Voucher!
