I have two cards for you today, both scenes (which you know I LOVE to do) and both a ton of fun to create! My first card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut Brick Wall Cover-Up Die-namics from Grout Gray card stock and adhered it to a panel of Brick Red card stock that I distressed up a bit to look like old brick, then popped the whole thing up on foam mounting tape. Next I cut Boutique Window Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and assembled it with a heat resistant acetate window, Formal Fleur de Lis Background “wallpaper” and sweets from BB Mon Chéri in the window.

I added Streetlights Die-namics (this month’s Free With $60 set) and the sentiments, also from BB Mon Chéri, stamped on Steel Gray card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. For a tongue-in-cheek take on the sentiment, I added the pigeon from London Mouse, sitting on the window sill ;-)

My next card is mostly done with images from London Mouse.

I wanted to depict a scene from a busy London street, so I added lots of iconic images. I watercolored the background, cut the images from Ranger watercolor paper and watercolored them, as well.

The sentiment is from BB Adventure is Calling and the sun was cut with Blueprints 21 Die-namics.

And that’s it for the last day of MFT’s September Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by==hope to see you tonight for the New Product Launch!

MFT September Release Countdown, Day Two

countdownday2_2015aug31

Hi, everyone, welcome to Day Two of MFT’s September Release Countdown! We’re getting close—tomorrow night at 10pm is release! Be sure to get all the details at the MFT Blog.

I must tell you that I gasped when I saw these sets from Laina this month! I’m a Coke-aholic and these stamps and dies just stole my heart! I couldn’t wait to create with them and here’s what I came up with.

I started with a Kraft card stock base. On a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock I spread some embossing paste through Concentric Circle Grid Stencil and allowed it to dry, then popped it up on foam mounting tape on the base, with a strip of Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack under the bottom edge. Next I cut LLD Soda Pop Bottles Die-namics from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper and colored it with Copic markers to resemble a bottle of Coke. I cut the back from Wild Cherry card stock, stamped the sentiment with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, adhered it to the bottle and popped it up on foam mounting tape on the embossing paste panel. The top was cut from Wild Cherry card stock and popped up on foam. I cut

Then I cut LLD Bottlecaps Die-namics from Wild Cherry card stock and added the inner element, stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Wild Cherry dye ink and popped up on foam, then adhered to the bottom of the card base. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and also heat embossed before being also popped up on foam.

I colored some rain drops with a Copic marker and adhered them to look like fizz coming out of the bottle, adding to the “poppin’” theme.
