happy birthday circle shaker card; MFT Stamps July Release Countdown



Party! Party! Party! Who's having fun?! The real question is, which one of you is already wearing the lamp shade on their head?! :)

Die-namics Birthday Centerpieces creates this fantastic circle opening in your card. It does not cut all the way out, but creates the perfect insides for a shaker card! I cut a panel of Sweet Tooth cardstock with it. Adhered my acetate behind and then foam mounted it to an inked panel. I am obsessed with these summery colors right now!

I stamped a sentiment from Piece of Cake on Black Licorice cardstock and heat embossed with with white powder. I thought it would pop nicely off the white card.

Around the sentiment I added a clip and gold stars cut from Gold Foil Cardstock with Die-namics Creative Clips and Die-namics Hip Clips.

birthday bear hugs: MFT Stamps July Release Countdown



Let the birthday party continue! Birdie Brown is bringing birthday bears this month! Birthday Bears is an adorable stamp set full of great sentiments and cute bears. What I like about this set, while it is birthday themed, it has uses beyond!

I stamped the polar bear in Natural Hybrid ink and used my Distress Markers for a watercolor, no-line coloring look. I still need to practice so much more, but with this cutie, its hard to go wrong!

And there are coordinating dies! Die-namics Birthday Bears has all the images ready for you! I chose to die cut this balloon to make it pop a little more off the card. And why can't all my coloring turn out like the balloon? I guess I need to stop working the paper too much and working so hard at it! Ha!

birthday cards and super news; MFT July Release Countdown



Welcome to the MFT Stamps July Release Countdown! This month is an extra special one because it is MFT Stamp's 9th birthday! And birthday is theme for our products this month! Stay tuned for the next few days to see just a peek of everything that will be released!

Die-namics Decor & More Numbers are going to be available! How cute is that large number 2?!? I have so many plans for these numbers! So many creative possiblities! 

I decided to really make it a fiesta by creating a fringe for my number two. I die cut the number two from Berrylicious cardstock. Then I cut several layers of fringe in different colors, to create an ombre look. This was done with a pair of fringe scissors.

The fringe layers were adhered to the number and trimmed away, using the basic number as a guide. I did try and layer the fringe on cardstock and then cut it with the number two, but the results were not the best. Some of the fringe fell off and the thickness did not allow things to cut correctly.

To add to the festive look, I cut Gold Foil Cardstock with Die-namics Pierced Star STAX.

The sentiment is from a new set of stamps called, Brushstroke Birthday. I am smitten with that font!

Die-namics Blueprints 26 is all about the birthday and balloons! 

Check out this balloon that can be cut with Die-namics Blueprints 26! I think this makes a simple and classy birthday card. One that is easy to create, especially in a pinch!\

The best part about this balloon?!?! See that paper? That patterned paper??! Oh yes that is patterned paper from MFT Stamps! That is the super news! MFT Stamps is releasing two 6x6 paper pads this month! They are fabulous! The colors, the scale of the patterns, all of it! Who is excited about this news?!!? 

I used the Dots & Stripes Sorbet Paper Pack to create the balloon. 

And to finish off this cute card is a darling sentiment from Birthday Wishes & Balloons. Love the mix of fonts in this set! One that will be living on my desk for sure!
