My Favorite Things March Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on March 6th at 9pm EST.

For my card today I used the new Birdie Brown set called Bubble over with Joy! I loved these adorable images and paired them with the new Elegant Rectangle STAX dies (coming soon!) to create a bright and colorful framed scene. I was all about bright colours in this release and loved experimenting with different shades of Distress Inks.

I created the background of the scene with Picked Raspberry for the sky and added some detail to it with the new Sunrise Radiating Rays stencil, and then I created the grass area at the bottom with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn ink.

I added a decorative edge with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 and added water to the completed panel to create a distressed look to kind of go with the bubble theme.

I added the images directly to the panel and die cut a frame for the outside edge with the Elegant Rectangle STAX dies. I also added some cloud detail to the frame to make it look the sky around the images.

I also wanted to share these baby cards that I created with the new Owl My Love stamps and dies. These two cards were created for this month's release class, so stay tuned next week for a downloadable PDF and an instructional video sharing how I created them.

They were a lot of fun to create, and I love the unexpected interactive element of the little baby owl in the mama's tummy. :)

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 4 of the March 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!!
