MFT Release Countdown: 1!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!

For the past 7 days, we have been counting down to the amazing April MFT Release, and you don't have too much longer to wait!  Today is the last day of the countdown and the big release is tonight at 10PM right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today, I have two cards to share with you!  My first card feature the AMAZING new Bokeh Builder, a set I could not possibly love more than I do!  It is SO SO fun to use!

I cut a piece of Smooth White Cardstock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics (yes, I use these Die-Namics ALOT), and I stamped this beautiful sentiment from Bokeh Builder using Gold Ink.  I just LOVE this sentiment, and I love gold too.

I used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics to cut two panels of Smooth White Cardstock.  I pulled out a variety of MFT inks, specifically Blu Raspberry, Berrylicious, Fuse Green, Spearmint, Razzle Berry, Bubblegum, Lemon Drop and Banana Split, and then just stamped all of the different sized circle stamps randomly.  I overlapped them, used patterned circles, and really didn't have any rhyme or reason, I just had fun with it.  I SUPER love how it came out too!!

On the inside, I again used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics, and I added another few circles, along with another sentiment stamped in gold.

Here are the MFT products I've used on my card:

I stamped this cutie onto X Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic Markers.  I cut out the panel using the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics.

I used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics for the Natural panel and the Smooth White mat, and I stamped the Natural panel with Natural ink using the On The Diagonal Background.

I popped the focal panel up with Jody Boosters on top of a Blu Raspberry panel cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics.   I added a horizontal panel of Gumdrop Green, and added a Smooth White border cut with the new Blueprints 14 Die-Namics.  

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Gerbera Daisy Die-Namics!  They are my most favorite flower, and I am SO excited to be able to create them now!  I used Razzle Berry Cardstock and sponged around the inside with Razzle Berry Ink.  I added a center cut from Lemon Drop and sponged with Orange Fizz, and then a final smaller circle cut from Hot Fudge Cardstock.

On the inside, I've again used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics to cut the panels, and stamped the Natural panel again with the On The Diagonal Background.  I stamped, "For Someone Special" in Black Licorice Ink.
