MFT March Release Countdown--Day 1

 It's the final countdown day of My Favorite Things March Release! All new 
products will go on sale tomorrow, March 6th at 9PM EST in the MFT Store.

Today I'm sharing a card using the So Many YAYs Die-namics and Yay for You
stamp set, which were part of a recent card kit and will now be sold separately.

I've been playing with alcohol inks, but this time, I used Copic marker refills
and the Copic colorless blender on Yupo paper. The results were almost the
same as with alcohol inks and there are a lot more colors to choose from.

I dropped several colors of reinkers on a sheet of white Yupo paper and let
the colors move with the colorless blender. I let it dry overnight, then cut the
panel with a Mod Rectangle STAX die.

The YAY was cut from the panel and the negative space was backed with
adhesive tape. The YAY was also cut from silver glitter card stock and the 
letters were popped into the respective spaces on the panel. The second part 
of the sentiment was white embossed below the YAY and the card was finished
off with sequins.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more peeks at the
March release and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 prize.
Hope to see you tomorrow for the New Product Launch!


  1. Gorgeous background and I love that you used the Mod Rectangle for your design! Beautiful card, Donna!

  2. Yay! Love the word dienamic, the mod rectangle, and especially the alcohol inked background!!!

  3. Fantastic background! I can't believe you were able to achieve this look with the Copic reinkers. It definitely looks like you used alcohol inks. The silver die cut sentiment looks beautiful against your background!

  4. Wow! Copic reinkers and Colorless Blender! Looks great. Thanks for the tip to add adhesive to the back of the negative. What a great way to adhere the inlaid. Why do I always do things the hard way?

  5. Too cute...thanks for a fun and inspiring week. Jan D., FL

  6. Love it. Thank you for the fabulous inspiration

  7. What a gorgeous YAY lagoon, Donna! I love the beautiful AI effect and colors. Your inlaid sentiment and the sequins are just perfect for the background. I'm excited to see you exploring AI. If and when I take a step into the Copic world, I would love to try this technique! Hideko xx
