My Favorite Things July Release Countdown: Day 1

The last day is finally here… there’s one more round of product sneak peeks before tomorrow’s release. I used the new Mermaid For Each Other Stamp Set for today’s card.

I kept this card really simple. I stamped and colored this sweet mermaid with Copic Markers. I white heat-embossed a sentiment from the stamp set onto black card stock, and trimmed it with a Skinny Strips Die-namics.

For the background, I used Turquoise and Pink Sherbert Ranger Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper. With a disposable pipette, I added 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to one corner. I held the paper up, and let the alcohol run down to the opposite corner. Next I quickly added drops of both ink. The inks blended together to form this beautiful background.

I used a stitched rectangle Die-namics to die-cut the panel, then attached it to a card base with foam adhesive. I added the sentiment and mermaid with thin foam squares.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today to see the final reveal of all the new July products, and more Design Team sneak peeks. The release  will be available tomorrow, July 9, at 10am EST in the MFT shop. Thanks for stopping by!
