My Favorite Things May Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things May release countdown! Over the next five days we'll be sharing peeks at all of the new products with various cards and projects using the new stamps and Die-namics and my new favourite stencil! ;)

For my card today I used the new Seaside Seagulls stamp set to create a little water scene on my card with them as the focal point.

To create the background, I added Peacock Feathers Distress ink to a white cardstock panel with an ink blending tool and then I added a bit of water to life off some of the ink and give it a distressed look.

I used the little wave dies in the Seaside Seagulls die set to cut three little wave openings in the background panel for my birds to tuck into. For the area with the rock, which was a little too wide for any of the openings, I diecut two of the openings side by side to make it longer. I then ran the entire panel through my diecutting machine with the largest Stitched Wonky Rectangle die.

I love that with the little waves diecut into the background, you can tuck the seagulls in so they look like they are actually floating in the water. I added the three seagulls (with the rock from the new Mermazing stamp set) and then I adhered the finished panel to a Grout Gray card base.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog today (and all week) to see all of the new products and more samples using them from the design team. All of the new products will officially be available in the MFT online store on Tuesday May 2nd at 9pm EST! 

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!!
