The MFT July Release Countdown has begun! Since it's the birthday month of My Favorite Things, this month's release is all about BIRTHDAY! From a versatile birthday sentiments stamp set to super FUN dies that make your handmade cards so unique and special, we have a lot of new products to share with you for the next 5 days. Be sure to stop by the MFT blog everyday to see full reveals of the products and for more inspiration from the fabulous DT. I hope you celebrate MFT's birthday with us. :)
Now let's get the party started with this card that I made using the new stamp set from Lisa Johnson, Celebrate with Cake!
I stamped the each layer of cake with Peach Bellini and Coral Crush Premium Dye inks to get an ombre effect. I used a Mini MSTI tool to do this and to line all the layers up perfectly. I cut the stamped cake with the matching die. I love that the Celebrate with Cake Die-namics includes a die to cut a three layered cake image at once. I decorated my cake with a pennant banner, a couple of flowers, and several pearls.
For my background, I stamped a Smooth White panel with the Snowfall Background using Gold pigment ink. After it dried, I added two die cut doilies and adhered the cake with foam tape.
It's a simple and quick card. I stenciled the balloons on a Primitive White card base directly using Orange Fizz and Blu Raspberry Premium Dye inks. I drew the strings with a black gel pen after I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set in Chocolate Brown. I inked around the edges of the card base with some Antique Linen Distress ink for a vintage look, and added three bows to finish off the card.
As I had so much fun creating this card, I had to make another card using the Big Balloons stencil.
This time I stenciled the balloons on a Kraft card base. I used Persimmon, Lush Lagoon, After Midnight (for shading) Premium Dye inks, and Sweet Tooth Pigment ink. I also stenciled the Snowfall over the white balloons with Gold pigment ink. The sentiment was stamped in Milk Chocolate.
I really enjoyed creating translucent effect with the Big Balloons Stencil!
