August MFT and Friends!


YAY! the day is here for you to start shopping the latest release from MFT, I sure do hope you get what you have been hoping for and I cannot wait to see all your creations..

Be sure to head to the blog to see all the amazing creations, products and even the amazing guests that are joining us this month..

I chose to work with the cutest set ever from Birdie Brown, Old Friends, I mean this set just melted me..

I took the plump little grandpa from this set, stamped him out and coloured him in with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then took a white panel and masking off the bottom section of the card, I took the Wonky Dots Stencil along with some Blue Breeze ink and applied a small amount of ink to create a funky wallpaper look..

I turned the card around and masked off the stenciled area and then added some Natural Ink to the base of this to create a wood look..

I added my little man and then stamped a sentiment underneath him..

Finishing off this card by taking a sentiment from the All the Encouragement set and die cutting around, adding this speech bubble to the top of the card..

Thank you so much for taking the time to come past my blog this month, enjoy your shopping..
