MFT August Release – Countdown Day 2

Hello there!

Welcome to another day of exciting previews from the My Favorite Things August Release!

NewReleaseCountdown_Day2

For Countdown Day 2, we’re showcasing the gorgeous Tiki Party stamp and Die-Namics sets; the Birds of Paradise stamp and Die-Namics sets; the Blissful Blooms stamp and Die-Namics sets and the Wonky Chevron Background stamp and stencil. Here’s my card:

The images in Blissful Blooms are so whimsical and so easy to work with – I used them to compose a sort of half-border around a stamped sentiment. To begin with, I created a range of inky backgrounds because I knew I wanted to die-cut the various flowers out quickly from them.

The inky panels were simply made by dotting some Dylusions Ink sprays onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and stamping onto a piece of white cardstock. The colours are so intense! The were heat set so that I could work with them straight away 😉

I then die-cut the flowers, stamped the co-ordinating images with Versamark ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I traced around one of the Double Stitched Oval STAX Die-Namics lightly with a pencil onto a card base, stamped the sentiment in the middle, and adhered the flowers down.

On another piece of white cardstock, I stamped one of the bird images from Birds of Paradise and coloured it in with some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I die-cut the bird out, foam mounted it to the card base and coated it with Glossy Accents for some shine!

I also added a few dots of Glossy Accents onto the centres of the flowers – I noticed that the ink underneath seemed to change colour, which I didn’t mind at all!
