You're Fin-tastic

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!

You've inspired me to try something similar to what you've done a fantastic job on. Like the grided background.
