MFT Previews: Day 2

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday and Happy Fourth of July!!!

I am SO very excited to be able to play along with the amazing MFT Team this month as the MFT July Guest Designer!!

Today, I get to share peeks of a simply DARLING new set featuring the sweetest bear around, Fred The Bear Hits The Beach!! I had SO much fun creating this!!

I started by stamping Fred in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe. Doesn't he look like he just cannot wait to jump in the water? LOVE him!!

I mixed up the patterned paper on this one. The stripes and red/cream polka dot pattern are both from Report Card by October Afternoon, and the yellow polka dot is from Early Bird by Cosmo Cricket.

I added a border of cork cut with the Die-Namics Jumbo Scallops Die, and the yellow polka dot paper was used for the super fun Die-Namics Sunshine Die. The center of the sun was also cut from the cork!

I added some paper piercing to this one as well as some yummy red Grosgrain Ribbon. I created the bow with the Bow Easy. The sentiment, "Enjoy The Sun" is also from Fred The Bear Hits The Beach and I cut it out with the largest die in the Tags Trio by Spellbinders. I sponged this panel too.
