MFT July Previews, Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to a second day of July 8 release previews with My Favorite Things!  Today I’ve used our new Birdie Brown stamp set, Sweet Birthday Wishes, along with Celebrate You and Blueprints 17.

I created a card by die-cutting two of the “chalkboard” (or, in my case, “whiteboard”) pieces first from cardboard, then four from Red Hot card stock (one for each side of the two pieces).  I cut an additional piece of Red Hot card stock to cover the back of the front with a 1/4″ folded flap at the top which I inserted between the cardboard and card stock of the back piece. (Clear as mud?)

The cute girl was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card using coordinating Sweet Birthday Wishes Die-namics, then colored with Copic markers (as were the gifts).  The sentiment is stamped from Celebrate You.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Wishes set as well as a few balloons, masked and colored.

You can check out the MFT Blog for direct links to more Countdown samples, info on prizes and all you need to know about our July 8 release!

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

  1. What a darling design! And red! I always bleed red all over the place. I didn’t catch which black ink you used to contain that, but I’ll try embossing next time I color with reds and see if that helps. Awesome shading on her dress and hair – just beautiful!
