MFT July Release Countdown Day 4

July 4, 2015

Welcome to Day 4 of MFT July Release countdown!
Today I have two cards to share with you, both use the new stamp set & Die-namics from Birdie Brown line, Birthday Bears.

My first card is relatively simple. But, thanks to the new stencils, Split Diagonal and Star Celebration, I could give my bears a fun and festive background.:)
First I masked the lower part of the Smooth White card base. I daubed some Banana Split ink using an ink blending tool, then stenciled Star Celebration pattern over it with Banana Split and Bubblegum. The lower part was made with the same technique, but I used Split Diagonal stencil and Bubblegum ink this time.

The images were colored with Copics and were cut out using the matching dies.

To create the sentiment banner I daubed some Bubblegum ink onto a piece of white CS and die cut it using Dimensional Banners Die-namics.

Next card is a shaker card.

Have you heard that MFT is releasing two patterned paper packs that are perfectly matched with their card stock colors? Super exciting!! :D I used one of them, Plaid Patterns paper pack, for this card. I love the fresh and pastel colors in this paper pack!

After I stamped the bear image, I masked only his paws and right hand. Then I stamped the gift box to have him hold it. I also stamped the balloons and the party hat using the masking technique.
The frame was die cut with the new Pierced Circle Frames Die-namics.

The sentiment was stamped and gold embossed on a Pierced Fishtail Flag die-cut piece.

Make sure that all of the new products will be available for purchase on July 7th at 10:00 pm EST.
