My Favorite Things June Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things June Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on June 5th at 9pm EST.

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

For my first card today I used the new Gill Friends stamp set, the Aquarium Die-namics, and the Large Rectangle Shaker Pouches to create an interactive aquarium card.

I stamped two of the fish and coloured them with rainbow colours and also stamped and coloured one of the greenery stamps. I created an inked background on a white card stock panel that would fit in the area where the fish tank would be and adhered the fish and plant to the background.

I diecut the opening for the aquarium in a second panel and glued the shaker pouch inside. I filled it with micro seed beads and assembled and adhered everything together to secure the beads in the aquarium.  I coloured the top and bottom of the aquarium and adhered them to the panel.

I added the finished panel to a Limelight card base and stamped the sentiment onto a Summer Splash sentiment strip and heat embossed it in white. I finished the card with some clear gems scattered on the card front.

For my second card, I created a beach scene with the umbrella from the new Just Beclaws stamp set and a fun crab from another new stamp set coming this week. I stamped and coloured my images and also cut out a strip of card stock for the sand with the Stitched Snow Drifts die as the top. I coloured the sand with Copic markers and added some white gel pen detail.

I created the waves behind the crab with a new stencil coming tomorrow and added the large cloud background with the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics. I love the white space the cloud provides between the sky and the water but I wanted a little more interest so I added some smaller clouds that I had die cut from the Beach Scene Builder Die-namics.

I finished the card with a stamped sentiment on the cloud and some clear jewels to create some added dimension and interest. 

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