MFT March Release Countdown--Day 1

Are you ready? It's one more sleep until My Favorite Things March Release!
All new goodies will be available for purchase on Tuesday, March 1st at 10PM EST.

 Personally, I think that you can never have enough ways to say "Thanks", and today
I'm sharing a new sentiment set--Kind Thanks, and Twice the Thanks Die-namics
that can help you express your gratitude in so many ways.

On my first card, I cut a panel of the new Thick & Think Paper Pack with the rectangle
element from Blueprints 24 and adhered it in landscape format on a card base. The two part
 sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice ink, using the stripes as a guide. Flowers and
leaves from Beautiful Blooms were stamped and die cut then adhered next to the sentiment.

On my second card, I used the camouflage technique shared by the uber talented
Laurafadora. Basically, you die cut the sentiment into your card, then stack several
die cut sentiments and pop them back in the negative space. If this sounds clear as mud,
check out Laura's video here, for her step-by-step tutorial.

The camouflage technique can be done over printed paper, an all over stamped
background, or masked inking as I've done here. And check out that fun sentiment
beneath the inlaid diecut. Know anyone you could send this to? (Wink!)

Stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration
from the rest of the design team, and be sure to leave a comment there for
your chance to win a $75 gift voucher.
