Good morning friends! Today I've got a cute little something to share with you, I just adore this new My Favorite Things Fishbowl Die-namics set. Aren't these little fishies so cute??
The MFT New Release Countdown is well underway - be sure to check the MFT Blog every day for links to participating designers. Also, there will be SEVEN prize packages given away - don't miss out on your chance to win, and win BIG.
Let's chat about these dies for just a moment, the Die-namics is designed to make it easy-peasy to create multi-colored fishes. Fill your fishbowl with grasses, fishes, die-cut bubbles (or you can knock out the bubbles peek-a-boo style). I've used the cut-and-recut technique to create a wavy top to the water. This is such a cute set and I look forward to using it again soon! The Die-namics coordinates with the Fin-tastic sentiment set (which is sold separately) and it includes a bunch of cute little puny sentiments.
My boys loved this Die-namics set when they saw it on my desk, and I must admit, as they get older, they're getting harder and harder to please so I was really happy!
The new Grid Background stamp is already a favorite. It's a classic pattern, nice and subtle but provides a lovely backdrop for your main images. I'm a big fan of tone-on-tone stamping and with the growing collection of MFT Hybrid Ink I'm in stampy-love. This is the Tangy Orange Ink stamped to Tangy Orange Card stock and trimmed out with the Blueprints 8 Die-namics. Here's a little tip, for the cleanest impression I recommend stamping your background first, and then Die-cutting.
The sentiment was stamped to a strip of Steel Grey card stock with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder. I accented with a small Sno Cone Button. Of late, I've been using Grout Grey as a card base, it's a nice neutral - it's a little less stark than a bright white card base. Give it a try!
I'll see you tomorrow with another Release Countdown project to share. Don't forget to head on over to the MFT Blog for your chance to win!
