MFT July Release Rewind – Tags, Cakes…and Spiders, Oh My!

Hi everyone!  It’s Day 2 of Release Rewind with MFT, an opportunity for the design team to use product we didn’t have a chance to use during previews.  On both of my projects today, I used Tag Builder Blueprints 1, Bring On the Cake Die-namics and Pinking Edge Circle STAX.

The first time I saw the decorative icing dies in Bring On the Cake Die-namics, I thought of spider legs.  I used the smallest Pinking Edge Circle for the body and eyes were cut using the eyelet circle from Tag Builder.

I *love* the color combo of Black Licorice, Grape Jelly and Limeade for Halloween.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from Trick of Sweet using Sweet Tooth pigment ink, white embossed then die-cut with a Pinking Edge Circle.

Next, I created a funky Halloween birthday card.  The background was embossed using Starry Night Stencil.  I added a strip of Dotted Scallop Border (middle die of the three sizes) to create a “table cloth” of sorts.  The sentiment is from new Delicious Birthday stamp set.

The spider (except for one strip of his legs) and cake are raised on foam tape.

Inside, I added a second Dotted Scallop Border and a sentiment from Sweet Birthday Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by today!  :)
