MFT's March Release Countdown Day 5 - Circle Scribble Flowers

Welcome to Day 5 of MFT's March Release Countdown! New stamp sets, new Die-namics, new stencils, and five new pretty colors of card stock and inks will all be available on March 3rd at 10:00 PM EST.

I have a couple of cards to share with you today. My first project features the new Lisa Johnson Stamp Set, Circle Scribble Flowers, along with the coordinating Circle Scribble Flowers and Scribbles Die-namics.


I cut the front panel from watercolor paper with a die in Blueprints 8 and then just watercolored the background with the Banana Split Premium Dye Ink Refill.

I created the frame with the new Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Square STAX Die-namics cut from Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock. The sentiment is from the new Totally Happy Stamp Set and cut out with the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.


To create each of the flowers I stamped the flower, cut it out with the Circle Scribble Flowers Die-namics and then used the Scribbles Die-namics to add the detail. I used Premium Dye Ink and Card Stock in Wild Wisteria, Lemon Chiffon, and Ripe Raspberry.

For the leaves I used Sour Apple  Card Stock, stamped the detail with Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, and added some highlights with a Copic Marker.


On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Totally Happy Stamp Set.


My second card is put together quickly and easily with the new Blueprints 23 Die-namics. The front panel is cut from Peach Bellini Prestige Card Stock. The sentiment is included in the new Totally Happy Stamp Set. 


To create my own patterned paper I used the Circle Scribble Flowers Stamp Set. I stamped a variety of different sized flowers and leaves with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink on Smooth White Card Stock, and embossed with white embossing powder. Then using a sponge dauber I added the color, using two different ink colors in the same color family on each flower. (Links to the inks are listed below).

I added the sequins with a die in Blueprints 23. I used a white glitter paper from my stash and sponged on Ripe Raspberry Dye Ink so that the sequins matched the card.


On the inside is another great sentiment from the  Totally Happy Stamp Set. 



Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with another Countdown Post. Here are the products I used to create my cards. Links to the new products will go live at release time.
