Hello everyone :). I'm really glad y'all have been enjoying my countdown and New Product Launch posts for MFT this month. I've been reading all your comments and replying to the ones that need replying to and it's been great!
I've got another couple of cards to share with y'all - it's Release Rewind time which just means the Design Team gets a chance to use some of the products from the release that we haven't had a chance to use yet!
So make sure to check out MFT's blog post today for links to the rest of the DT blog posts, and there will be another Release Rewind post on there tomorrow as well!
For my first card I used the new Picture This stamp set with the Cute Cameras 2 Die-namics - SO MUCH FUN. I had *the* hardest time deciding which camera die to use - I wanted to use them all LOL - but I finally decided to go with the Instagrammy-lookin' one.
I die cut it 3 times using Black Licorice, Kraft, and Chocolate Brown card stock to make it look pretty similar to the IG one, then used the little companion dies that come in the set to die cut the heart and all the other colors of card stock.
I stamped the Kraft background with the new Patterned Triangles BG stamp and Natural ink (another fave combo of mine), and used the Blueprints 11 Die-namics to die cut some of the other elements of the card.
I ended up making this a 4.25" square card - it just seemed to "work" better.
I used the Patterned Triangles BG again - this time in a different direction, and a couple more elements die cut with the Blueprints 11 die-namics to finish it off.
For my second card I pulled out the new It's a Pirate's Life set - SO adorable. I was totally channeling the "other AmyR" when I did this offset layout - she's the boss at that *wink*.
I used the MFT Jumbo Scallop Border die-namics that I've had forever and flipped them "upside down" to create the waves. And of course I used the Patterned Triangles BG stamp on the card base - really liking that BG!
I stamped the pirate ship and clouds from the set onto Kraft card stock with Versafine Onyx black ink then colored it in with my Koh-i-noor colored pencils. I was going to leave it at that but decided to blend them a bit with Gamsol and a blending stump just to give it a more finished look.
Then I had to add some highlights with my white paint pen - so obsessed with it lately!
