MFT July 2019 Release and MFT & Friends




It's time! My Favorite Things July Release is waiting for you in the MFT Store!
All spankin' new goodies can be found right here.



It's also time for MFT & Friends when the Creative Team and guests share more ideas
and inspiration with the July Release.

I made a slider card, pairing the new  Swimming Pool Die-namics and the cutie from
Drink Up the Sunshine and it turned out exactly as I had planned.



There are many video tutorials out there, but this one from MFT teammate Stephanie
was the one that I used. I inked the brick pattern with white pigment ink for the pool deck
and popped in the pool that was ink distressed and spattered with water.



I stamped the sentiment, then added the little bird and finished assembling the slider
following the video. I'll admit to pausing the video and rewinding it numerous times but
it was so worth it--I love how this card turned out!

And during the month of July, MFT will donate 10% of retail sales of Drink Up the Sunshine
stamp and Die-namics to Children Incorporated. How generous is that?


Here's a bonus card that I made and I wish that you could see her wobble.


I followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire on having a floating element on your 
card. It was easy to construct on an alcohol ink background that I made to
resemble the ocean. Isn't she the cutest with her sassy shades?




All right, off you go! And today's the day to visit all team members' blogs and leave
a comment by Thursday, July 11th for a chance to win one of two $100 MFT gift 
vouchers. Thanks so much for stopping by during the Countdown, and happy shopping!
