Hello everyone! It's release day for My Favorite Things and I'm very happy to be joining them this month for their MFT & Friends feature. Be sure to visit the MFT Blog where you'll find lots more inspiration for the May release.
I have two cards to share today using some of the new stamps and dies. I loved the new Watermelon Slice Die-namics so much! Watermelon always reminds me of summer and picnics. I used the classic red and green watermelon color scheme for both cards.
Featured on the first card is one of the adorable girl images from Sweet Besties. I started with an A2 size panel of white card stock. I masked off the top and bottom of the card with post-it tape that I die cut with an older MFT scallop border die. With a light hand, I blended on some Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink to the open area of the panel.
Next I die cut the hello and then stamped a sentiment from Sweet Bestie in black ink. I adhered my Copic colored images with low profile dimensional foam squares. Lastly, I added just a few clear sparking sequins. I love how the girl looks as though she's dancing over the hello and scattering flowers as she goes.
For the next card, I used the Watermelon Slice Die-namics as the focal points on a slimline design. I die cut all the watermelon pieces from white card stock and blended on some Distress Oxide Inks to color each piece. Festive Berries for the red parts and a combination of Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover for the green. I then die cut the seeds from black card stock and added highlights with a white gel pen.
My card base measures 8.5 inches long by 3.5 inched wide. I stamped the striped detail along the bottom edge of the card front using the Watercolor Stripes Background stamp. I adhered the watermelon slices with dimensional foam squares. I then added a combo stamped and die cut greeting using the Sweet Sentiments and Sweet Die-namics. For a little emblelliment, I added Rose Water Nuvo Jewel Drops and a few tiny acrylic hearts.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Have a wonderful week!
