Drink Up The Sunshine | MFT Stamps July Release Countdown – Day 1

July 4, 2019

Hello, friends and Happy 4th of July! It’s time to kick off the July Release Countdown from My Favorite Things! This release is full of amazing new stamps and dies. I really think that you’re going to love it!

I’ve created a really fun interactive card today featuring the new Birdie Brown Drink Up the Sunshine Stamp Set combined with both the new Swimming Pool and Twist & Turn Interactive Die-namics. When you pull on the tab, both the girl and the bird sway back and forth! Check out the short clip below to see this card in action! You can check out an awesome tutorial by MFT’s Laura Dovalo HERE.

MFT Stamps Twist & Turn Die-namics

To start, I stamped all of my images with Copic friendly Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used Copics to color everything and the coordinating Drink Up the Sunshine Die-namics to cut them out. I also used some leaves from the new Birdie Brown Sunshine & Friendship Stamp Set.

I used the Swimming Pool Die-namics to cut a pool shaped hole into the center of my front panel. Prior to cutting this, I first blended what I hoped to look like brick pavers using both the English Brick Wall Stencil and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink. I used some Gray Copics (C0, C2, C4) to color the brick trim around the pool.

I blended some Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink for the pool water and splattered it with some water to create more interest. Once this panel was dry, I heat embossed my sentiment using some Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.

All new products and product links will be available this coming Tuesday, July 9th at 10AM EST. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more sneak peeks and inspiration! Leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 MFT Gift Voucher!

    What an adorable card, I love the way you used the texture around the shaker window to make the coping edge around the pool.
