My Favorite Things July Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the July release countdown for My Favorite Things. All this week, we're sharing cards and projects using the new products that officially releases on July 11th at 9pm EST.

For my card today I used the new Celebrate Die-namics to create a simple watercolour card with the focus on the sentiment.


I created the watercolor background with a few different colours of Distress ink, water and a paint brush and I let it completely air dry before die cutting it with a stitched rectangle die from Blueprints 13.

While it was drying I die cut the Celebrate word three times from white card stock and layered them on top of one another for dimension. I adhered it to the watercolor panel and then I adhered the entire thing to a Grout Gray card base.


I covered the finished die cut word with glitter using my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen and then I added Glossy Accents over the entire word to give it a glossy dimensional finish. :-)

Make sure to head over to the MFT Stamps blog for more ideas using the new products from the design team. See you tonight for the release! :-)

  1. This is a lovely card, Stephanie. The gray card is a good choice for focusing on the watercolors and word die cut. I don't always think about the benefits of gray! Thanks for sharing this design.
