MFT's July Release Countdown Day 1 - Happy!!

Thanks for stopping by today for Day 1 of MFT's July Release Countdown!  The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, will be available tonight at 10 PM EST.

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects and for your chance to win one of seven, $75 Gift Certificates. 

Today I have two cards using the new 
Happy Everything Stamp Set and the coordinating Happy Die-namics, along with a number of other new products. 

On my first card the background is created with the new Grid Stencil and Banana Split Ink. Using the Happy Die-namics, I cut the word "happy" out twice, once from a light weight chipboard and again from Black Licorice Card Stock, gluing the two together. 

The word "BIRTHDAY" is from the  Happy Everything Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is cut out with a die in the Sentiment Strips Die-namics. 

The balloons are cut with the new Balloon STAX Die-namics. I cut the larger balloon directly into the patterned card stock and the added text behind the balloon with the new Happy Birthday Background Stamp. I used the new Confetti Background Stamp to add pattern to the green balloon.

On the inside I stamp a sentiment from the new Celebrate You Stamp Set. 

On my next card I used the new Square Grid Cover-Up Die-namics to give the affect of a window. This sentiment is from the Happy Everything Stamp Set. I cut "happy" twice again. I like using the chipboard to give the word a little more dimension. 

I cut the hill with the Snow Drifts Die-namics from Gumdrop Green Card Stock

Here's a closer look at the sun. I used the Sun Ray Stencil and layered on Banana Split, Lemon Drop, and Orange Fizz Ink. Then I added glitter with a glue pen. The rose is cut with the Layered Rose Die-namics.

On the inside I stamped sentiments from the  Happy Everything Stamp Set.
