Swinging Piñata - MFT April Release Countdown Day 3

April 1, 2018

Welcome to Day 3 of the MFT April Release Countdown! Today I'm showcasing the Birthday Piñata stamp set & Die-namics.

Actually, I haven't seen piñata in real life since it isn't popular in Japan. But I watched a few videos on YouTube and it looked so FUN!! I really wish I had known it when my children were little. They must have had so much fun playing with it.

I made a small curved slider channel behind the piñata using a die from the Circle Spinner Channels Die-namics so it swings as you see in the video below.

To create my card, I cut a panel of Smooth White CS using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and drew stripes in rainbow colors of Copic Markers. Then I cut out the slider channel, stamped the sentiment and candies, and colored the candies with Copic Markers and a white gel pen. After I made the slider mechanism, I adhered the panel to the card base with foam tape along with a little bakers twine.

I stamped the PI girl and the piñata with Chocolate Brown Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copic Markers and colored pencils. The PI girl was adhered to the panel with Thin Foam Squares and the piñata was attached to the slider mechanism. I added some Champagne Stickles around the candies to finish off the card.

Make sure that all the new products will be available for purchase on April 3 at 9:00 pm EDT.
