MFT August Card Kit Countdown Day 1 and...Exciting News!!

August 21, 2017

It's time to begin the countdown to the MFT August Card Kit Release! The new kit is called X's and O's, and it is SUPER CUTE & FUN! It will be available for purchase on August 22nd at 9:00 pm EDT in the MFT store. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog today and tomorrow for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.

And also... I'm extremely excited today because I can finally share this awesome news with you!!! The Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set is coming back!! 
The Witch Way Is the Candy was retired awhile back, but MFT has decided to revive it with a lot of requests from customers! I'm really really happy that my old set is still loved so much and MFT listens to the voice of their customers. Thank you so much for your support to my Birdie Brown stamp line, and I'm grateful to MFT for making this happen!
The stamp set and Die-namics will be available for purchase at the same time with the X's and O's Card Kit.

The images in the new Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set are almost the same with the retired one, but there are minor changes here and there - like the line weight of the cat's nose, cat's ears, the stripes on witch's tights, and so on. The font of the sentiments has been changed and a few new sentiments have been added. There is no change on the shape of the matching dies. But the new dies are open inside, not solid.

Now, I need to get into today's cards. (Finally, LOL.)
My first card features the X's and O's Card Kit and the Huge LOVE Die-namics, which is the new free with $60 die.

The new Tic Tac Toe board shapes included in the kit fit in the Square Shaker Pouches perfectly. And the Mixed Heart Pieces are so cute and versatile! 
Here is a close up photo of the Tic Tac Toe board showing you its thickness.

The "LOVE" was die cut out of striped paper that I made using card stocks included in the kit (Razzle Berry, Poppy, and Wild Cherry). 

My second card uses the Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set.

To create the background, I cut a panel of Blueberry CS, inked it with Nightshift Blue ink, and spattered some white ink over it. I used the Birch Trees and the Solid Birch Trees Die-namics for the wood scene.

I added the tiny spots beside the embossed sentiment using Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ripened Pumpkin).

Thank you so much for your comments and advice on my first tutorial video. Your warm words encouraged me! 
This time I filmed the process of my coloring on the witch. I don't think I'm an expert on coloring with Copic Markers. You'll see how many times I go back and forth and how long it takes me to finish one image, then you will understand why I say I'm not an expert. LOL!

Thank you for stopping by today!
