MFT July Previews, Celebrate You

Hi everyone!  It’s time for July previews with MFT!  If you’ve been a fan for a while, you know that July is the month we celebrate MFT’s birthday as well as Kim’s (super-fabulous “MFT Lady”).  And boy oh, boy do we have a bunch of amazing birthday themed stamps and dies for you!  So much fun!

I have two samples today, a his and a hers.  Ladies first…

My first card uses new Celebrate You stamp set (by Lisa Johnson Designs) as well Blueprints 17.

I die-cut pieces from Blueprints 17 using bright Razzle Berry card stock, stamping the sentiment, gifts and flags to match with Razzle Berry and Black Licorice dye inks.  I love the embossed wood grain design on the frame.

Inside, I stamped a second sentiment and added a big, bright gift.

Next I have a masculine birthday card using Chocolate Brown, Kraft and Smooth White card stock.  I used new Birthday Chalkboard Greetings with Happy Birthday Background and Blueprints 17.

Flags are attached to hemp cord and raised on foam tape.

Inside, I used a leftover piece of the birthday text and stamped a sentiment from Birthday Chalkboard Greetings.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow!
