The MFT April Release Countdown has begun. This month's release is packed with spring, spring, spring! I'm sorry to say that I can participate in the Countdown only three days (from Day 5 to Day 3) because of my son's move, but please make sure you stop by the MFT blog everyday to see the full reveals of the new products and leave a comment there for your chance to win a prize.
My card for today features a cute toad from the new Springtime Critters stamp set, and I combined it with the Springtime Blooms stamp set and the previously released Stitched Rainbow Die-namics to create a happy spring scene.
First I die cut a stitched rounded rectangle panel from watercolor paper using the Blueprints 31 Die-namics, inked it with Summer Splash Premium Dye ink, and spritzed it with some water. I die cut the rainbow from Smooth White CS and colored it with Copic markers in pastel rainbow colors. I adhered it to the inked panel and cut off the excess, then added a puffy cloud. I die cut another panel of Smooth White with the Blueprints 31 Die-namics and the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics, stamped it with the Swiss Dots Background using Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye ink, and adhered to the inked panel.
The images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers, and die cut out with the matching dies. I popped up only the toad with foam tape.
I white embossed the sentiment onto a Coral Crush panel cut with a die from the Blueprints 27 Die-namics and added a little Gloss White Crystal Drops beside the sentiment. I also added two little fishtail banners cut with the Blueprints 31 Die-namics. All the patterned papers are from the new Dots & Stripes Confection Paper Pad which will be revealed on the MFT blog tomorrow. I added several sequins to finish off the card.
All the new products will be available for purchase on April 4th at 9:00 pm EDT.
Head on over to the MFT blog to see the new products revealed today and for more inspiration from the DT.
