My Favorite Things April Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things April Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on April 3rd at 9pm EST. And we're  changing things up starting with this release and sharing all of the countdown posts at 9pm EDT each day!

And stay tuned for the week following each release - we're bringing you even more inspiration and ideas using all of the new products!

So on to my cards for today. First up I have one that I created with the new Pure Innocence set called Birthday Pinata. I love all of the images in this set because you can create an entire party scene. :)

To create the card I first stamped, coloured and die cut the girl image and then I also die cut a white stitched rectangle panel. I added brick detail to the panel with the English Brick Wall Stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress ink and then I added the girl image on top.

The little candy pieces were stamped directly on the white panel and I added the pinata onto the design with a bit od foam adhesive. I alo added a silver string for the pinata to hang from. 

I finished the card by adding the panel to a Blu Raspberry card base and then I added the sentiment banner and some clear gems for some added dimension.

For my second card, I created a rainbow striped background with Distress inks by adding post-it tape onto the card stock panel in rows and then adding the various ink colours in between. 

I created a distressed look on the inked stripes by adding some water and then dabbing it off with a paper towel and then once it was dry I added the panel to an Orange Fizz card base.

To create the large Fiesta greeting, I die cut the word twice from white card stock and once from silver glitter paper and then I layered them on top of one another with the glitter one on top. I adhered them to the large stripe in the center and then I added some clear gems onto some of the stripes as well.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 3 of the April release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!!
