You're Fin-tastic...MFT May New Release Countdown Day 7 36

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 6, 2014 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to Day 7 of the MFT May New Release Countdown! The May New Product Launch will be on Tuesday, May 13th at 9 PM Eastern in the MFT Boutique. This release, just like ALL of MFT's releases is overflowing with amazing products! Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers along with the amazing prize info!
Today I have a couple of projects to share featuring the fun LJD Sea Life stamp set, the coordinating Die-namics Sea Life die set and the You're Fintastic stamp set. First up is a rather clean card featuring a cute stamped Blu Raspberry fish from Sea Life
I wanted to create an ombre background representing the pretty colors of the Caribbean waters so I used the Die-namics Polka Dot Cover-Up to cut a piece of the following cardstock colors starting from the bottom: Blu Raspberry, Berrylicious, Sno Cone and Sweet Tooth. Once I had all the cardstock cut, I assembled to create an ombre effect. I finished it off with a die cut tag featuring a sentiment from Sea Life, along with a Sno Cone button:
Next is a layout featuring a couple of photos of Scott and Connor that were taken when we were on vacation, diving off the shores of Maui. I framed the photos with die cut frames that were made using one of the frames included in the new Die-namics Rectangle Frames die set:
These versatile products work perfectly to create an underwater sea life scene! I used the following variety of the newly released Hybrid inks: Lemon Drop, Sour Apple, Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Black Licorice and Blu Raspberry:
For the title, I stamped one of the fun and versatile sentiments from Sea Life on a the inner piece that was made using a Die-namics Rectangle Frames die then framed it with the outer die cut Rectangle Frame. I created a mini underwater scene featuring a cute fish and other sea creatures all from Sea Life:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Creative Scrappers sketch challenge:
Thank you for stopping by!
Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the design team has created. You'll also read about some HUGE prizes being given away this week during the new product countdown that you won't want to miss! I'll be back tomorrow for more to share for Day 6 of the countdown.
Be Sweet :)
