Two Days Until the Release

Thank you for joining me as we count down to the next MFT release. We are just two short days away from the big day! All the new Stamps, Die-namics, and Stencils will be available on Tuesday, June 2 at 10:00pm EST. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the new items being revealed today. Don't forget to leave a comment on the MFT Blog countdown posts, YOU could win one of the five $75.00 gift vouchers.

I have two cards to share with you today, they both feature the Count the Stars stamp set and Lucky Stars Die-namics by Laina Lamb. I absolutely LOVE this new line from Laina.

For my first card, I created a dreamy sky using After Midnight, Lavender Fields, and Tropical Teal Premium Dye Inks with a few Blending Tools. I started with the Lavender in the center, then the Tropical Teal, and finally the After Midnight. I stamped over the night sky with the new Tiny Stars Background in Silver Delicata ink.

The stars were die-cut in Shimmery Silver card stock. I added some adhesive to the back of the card stock before I die-cut them. I added a thin layer of Crystal Effects to the stars to give them that extra little shine.

My next card is a clean and simple one. I used a few of the stamps from the Count the Stars stamp set to create the sentiment. They ability to mix and match the sentiments in this set is one of my favourite things about it. You can create just the perfect saying! The stars were die-cut in Lemon Drop, Red Hot, and Blu Raspberry card stock.
