MFT Release Countdown Day 1

Today is the final day of My Favorite Things June Release Countdown, and all products
will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10pm EST in the MFT Store!

I'd like to share two cards with you, with more goodies to add to your wish list. (Wink!)
First up is a Happy Panda, who made an early appearance on yesterday's card.

I ink distressed the Bold Paisley Stencil with Tropical Teal in ombré fashion,
then cut out the center portion with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle STAX and popped it up
with some fun foam. The panda was stamped and die cut with its matching die
and a bit of blush was added with Copic markers.
The two part sentiment comes with the set and I placed them side by side on 
a banner strip, adding the periods with a Versamark pen, then heat embossing
them with white embossing powder.

My second card features a timeless fave--butterflies. Flutter of Butterflies
are stand alone butterfly dies in solid or lace patterns. I chose one of the
solid dies and die cut them out of watercolor paper, then colored them with
Zig Kuretake Clean Color pens.

I adhered them to a panel cut from a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle STAX
and the sentiment is from Blue Skies Ahead. The panel was then adhered to
a card base stamped with the Myriad Dot Background--such a versatile stamp!

 Don't forget to stop by the MFT blog to see the other designers participating in
