cardkitday2_2017jul25

Hi, everyone, welcome to Day Two of MFT’s July Card Kit Countdown: All Smiles Card Kit. Don’t you love these flowers! And the gorgeous colors in the kit just scream summer!

For this card, I stamped up a piece of Smooth White card stock (included in the kit) with flowers to create my own patterned paper using Cotton Candy dye ink, Gumdrop Green dye ink, Lemon Drop dye ink, Orange Fizz dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, Pineapple dye ink, Ripe Raspberry dye ink, and Sour Apple dye ink. I cut a strip to run down the side of my card base, then also cut it Twice the Smiles Die-namics. I popped up the die cut sentiment on more Smooth White card stock with foam mounting tape, using the negative as a template for accurate placement.

I adhered that to the card base with more foam tape then stamped the sentiment from All Smiles with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics (mid-month Free With $60), heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped it up on foam, as well. To finish off, I added some enamel dots in some of the kit colors

And that’s it from me—kit release is tonight at 9pm, hope to see you back then! Thanks for stopping by!

All Smiles - MFT July Card Kit Countdown, Day One

cardkitday1_2017jul24


Hi, everyone, today is the first day of peeks at MFT’s July Card Kit, All Smiles Card Kit! Lots of lovely blooms in this kit and a wonderful sentiment set, along with dies for both. What’s not to love?


SensationalStitchedFlowers_KitPeek

Before I get to my card, I wanted to mention that with this stamp and die set, MFT is introducing a foolproof method of lining up your stamps and dies perfectly. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always struggled to line up asymmetrical stamps and dies, especially flower petals, perfectly. This makes it a piece of cake! Essentially you line up an arrow built into the stamp base photopolymer with a poke hole in the die and it’s magic! It’s called Smart Align and you can find out all about it and how it works from the video on the MFT blog today.

I wanted to do something a little different so I started by cutting the front of my card base with dies from the Plentiful Petals stamp set in the kit. Once I did that, I stamped leaves on the card front using
Sour Apple dye ink and Gumdrop Green dye ink. Next I stamped and cut a lot of flowers Cotton Candy dye ink, Lemon Drop dye ink, Orange Fizz dye ink, Peach Bellini dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, Pineapple dye ink, Ripe Raspberry dye ink, and Tickled Pink dye ink. Using the opening in the card front, I positioned the flowers on the INSIDE of the card and adhered them with foam mounting tape. This gives them some dimension but did not make it very thick at all.

Next I stamped the sentiment, from All Smiles, on the inside back and adhered Heat Resistant Acetate to the inside front, to create a “window” through which to view the flowers. I cut Double the Smiles Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock several times, adhered them together, and added it to the front and was done.

Here’s a real quick video showing how the inside and outside interact better.




And there you have Day One of
All Smiles Card KitMFT’s July card kit. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day Two! Release is tomorrow night, July 25th, at 9pm so make a note!
