MFT Previews, Day 5 — Sending Bunches of Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone, and thanks for stopping in for today’s preview of My Favorite Things‘ July release.  :)

My sample today uses Bunches of Birthday Wishes.  The set comes with the image I’ve used here along with many different sentiments appropriate for birthday, congrats, encouragement, etc.  So cute!  I decided to go the birthday route since I had a particular recipient in mind.

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, coloring with Copics and piecing the balloons, I die-cut around the image using new Pierced Circle STAX (layered atop an Electric Red circle cut using Circle STAX 1).

The sentiment was split and stamped onto two Sentiment Strips 2.  (I adjusted the lengths of the strips as needed by running the stamped/die-cut pieces through my Vagabond a second time.)

The yellow balloon in the front is popped up on a (thinner) Kool Tak Clear Foam Square while the entire front panel as a whole is popped up on (thicker) X-Press It Foam Tape.

I love those little piercings around the circle!

Inside, I stamped the image as well as a sentiment from Lisa Johnson’s new Birthday Greetings using Black Licorice ink.
