Hi there

We are finally at the shopping day for the July Release for MFT, don’t forget to head over to the blog and see all the July Release and the Inspiration from the team..

I chose to create a little boy card using the Blast off die using After Midnight card stock and pattern paper from the Party Plaid..

I then took a white panel and ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting the All the Stars die and added this to a white card base..

I added my little rocket and a sentiment that I stamped and embossed onto Black Licorice card stock from the Best Friends in the Universe…

I completed this card by adding a few enamel dots..

I hope you have enjoyed this countdown, sorry about the boo boo’s for the month..

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there

Day 1 of July Release Countdown from MFT, I hope you have so much fun adding things to your wish list, be sure to head to the blog for more inspiration..

I worked on a really simple card for today and letting the image and pattern paper shine..

I took one of the dinosaurs from the A-roar-able stamp set and coloured in with Copics, die cutting him and setting aside..

Whilst die cutting I took a panel of pattern paper from the Party Plaids paper pad and die cut a circle using the Stitched Circle Stax..

I trimmed another piece of pattern paper from the Black and White Stripes and added a sentiment to the top of this, stamping onto white card stock..

I added the panel of pattern paper and then the rest of the elements and completed this card by adding some enamel dots..

Thanks for taking the time to swing past the blog this month I will be back again tomorrow for MFT and Friends..

I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the July Release Countdown for MFT, I hope you have loved what you have seen so far, for more today, don’t forget to head to the blog..

I worked with a couple of new items on my card for today..

The new Pure Innocence girl called Birthday girl to which I stamped out and coloured her in, then paper pieced her dress using a piece of pattern paper from the new paper pad called Party Plaid, setting her aside..

I then took Grout Gray and Lemon Chiffon card stocks and die cut the Frosted Cupcake, adding dimension using the extra pieces in this set, I also added a touch of white gel pen dots to the wrapper..

I added both the cupcake and the Birthday Girl to another piece of pattern paper from the Party Plaid and then to a white card base..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock, trimming off some of the sentiment itself as I just wanted the wording Birthday Girl and then added all this to a Grout Gray card..

Have fun checking everything out again today, I will be back again with Day 1 of the countdown tomorrow..

Hi there

So it is Day 3 of the July Release Countdown for MFT and I have a sweet little boy card for you today using loads of new products..

Don’t forget to head to the blog to see all the latest and greatest..

Taking the Best Friends in the Universe stamping out the images and colouring in with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

Next, I took the Blast off Die and die cut all the pieces out of Black Licorice, Electric Red, Lemon Drop and white card stocks, piecing it all and it formed the cutest little rocket..

To create a background, I took a white panel, then grabbed the Window Panes Stencil, adding Black Licorice and After Midnight into each section to create an outer space look, adding glitter and white gel pen dots to create stars..

I added my images along with my rocket and completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock and a scattering of enamel dots..

I hope you have fun perusing the blogs today..

Hi there

WOW!! did I make a big boo boo, woke this morning to realise that I had posted the wrong card on wrong day, so so sorry, so people that have commented I am sorry I have had to delete your comments, sadly you will need to repost again on the proper card and day!

So here is the card that I was meant to post for Day 4 of the July Release Countdown for MFT, so don’t forget to once again head to the blog to see all the goodness..

I chose to use the fabulous Ice Cream Cone die on my card with loads of pastel colours..

I die cut the cone out of Lemon Chiffon and Kraft card stocks and put aside..

I then took strips of Sno Cone and white card stock adding to the top and the base of the white panel and adding a small strip of Tickled Pink card stock at the top of each section..

I added my cone with some sequins and completed this fun card with sentiments that I embossed onto Cement Gray card stock from the Bitty Birthday Wishes stamp set..

Once again apologies for the boo boo, it has been a really bad week since Darryl has been gone and I know I will have many more of these, so not surprise I am making mistakes..

Thank you for understanding..

Have a great day!

Can you believe we are now into July, it just goes incredibly quick does it not..

So today we at MFT start to share the sneaks from the July Release, I start you off with day 5, using the latest from Birdie Brown and yet another great stamp set, Picture Perfect Party Animals..

I stamped and coloured in one of the images using Copics and die cut around the image using the Selfie Square..

I then trimmed pattern paper from the latest paper pad called Party Plaid and layered these together..

With Cement Gray card stock, I took the Photo booth die and cut it down to form what looked like a polaroid..

Going back to the coloured image I took white card stock and the Polaroid Shaker Frame, die cutting into the base of the polaroid using the Captions die, adding Lemon Drop card stock to the back so it showed through to the front..

I stamped a sentiment onto white card stock and added all the elements to a white card base..

Be sure to head over to the blog to see all the amazing creations and also the amazing product that will be released this month..
