My Favorite Things July Release Countdown | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the My Favorite Things July Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on July 10th 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!

My first project features my favorite product from the new release - the Cross-Stitch Bookmark Die-namics! I have been having so much fun creating bookmarks with this die and have so many ideas for more. I love that it combines my love for reading with crafting!

I stitched a bookshelf pattern onto the bookmark with fun rainbow colours and then I backed it with a piece of Limelight card stock. For this one, I added a tassel that I purchased but stay tuned for later in the week and I'll show you how to make one!

For my card today I used the new Happy Birthday Block Die-namics to create a bold rainbow birthday greeting. I love this large die and how quick and easy it is to create cards with it.

To create the rainbow I added Distress inks to a white card stock panel in rainbow order and then I die cut it with the die. I also cut it from a white square of card stock as well and then I added all of the coloured letters into the openings on the white panel. I love that everything stays one later.

I added a secondary sentiment from the Safari Friends stamp set onto a black sentiment strip and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I completed the card by adding the panel to a Summer Splash card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 2 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!
