You're in the Spotlight - MFT & Friends July 2018

July 17, 2018

It's time for the MFT and Friends feature on the MFT blog. Today MFT design team and some fabulous guests are sharing more projects featuring the most recent release.

I chose the Happy Birthday Block Die-namics and the Greatest Show stamp set & Die-namics for my card today.

I was totally inspired by a sentiment in The Greatest Show stamp set for my card design. To create my background scene, I cut Blueberry CS with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, masked off both sides of the panel, and daubed some Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink using a sponge dauber. Then I spattered yellow, teal, and white watercolor paints to add some festive feel to the scene. Once it dried, I masked the part of the spotlight and daubed After Midnight Premium Dye Ink to the upper half of the panel using a Mini Ink Blending Tool.

As I wanted to add more texture and interest to the background, I added the big and bold "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" with the camouflage technique. I stamped the images with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut them out with the matching dies and adhered to the panel.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Electric Red CS and was cut out with a banner die from the Hearts in a Row - Horizontal Die-namics. I attached it to the background panel with foam tape, adding a Pineapple panel cut with the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members and the guest designers have come up with for today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!


  1. Your card is sooo cute!!! I love the spotlight effect and the Happy Birthday block works great as a background.

  2. なんてきれいなスポットライト!上半分をAfter Midnightで暗くされたり、カラフルなスパターを加えられたりとても素敵ですね☆ 私もHappy Birthday Blockダイでカモフラージュのカードを作ってみたいと思います。カードを横で眺めている象さんたちはスタンプの象さんにそっくりですね! くまこ
