My Favorite Things - June Release Countdown Day 3

At Countdown Day 3 we've hit the half way point to the new release from My Favorite Things which you will be able to purchase at 10am on June 8th.   My card today features the brand new Stacey Yacula illustrated stamp set called Spa Day and in the background is Scallop Stripe also designed by Stacey.

To create this card I first ink blended a panel of white cardstock using Spun Sugar,  Kitsch Flamingo and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks.   I then used the new Scallop Stripe stamp and stamped it with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in white.

I used dies from the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX sets 1 and 2 and here to die cut the pink panel and to die cut a yellow panel of cardstock.   To own both sets 1 and 2 gives you more choices and allows for skinnier slivers of colour when layering.   I adhered the outer cut of the pink panel to my white card base.  I backed the yellow panel with white craft foam and adhered that over the pink edge and then glued the main pink portion to the yellow.

I stamped my images from Spa Day on to Copic friendly cardstock and I used my Copic markers to colour them.  I used the coordinating die-namics to die cut the individual images which I backed with foam tape and applied.

I highlighted a few points with a white gel pen and I used Stickles glitter in Crystal to add subtle glitter to the bubbles in the bathtub and the little overspill bubbles on the floor.  I also added a touch more to the underside of the shower head.

Last but not least I chose the punny sentiment (there are many included in the stamp set) and stamped it on to a sentiment strip from Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics.   This strip was of course also backed with foam tape and adhered into position.

I hope you like my super girly card and I now urge you to visit the MFT blog when you have a moment.  See much more from the release items being revealed today and of course you must leave a comment to put yourself in the running to win a $75 gift voucher.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new card so I hope to see you back here then.

Happy crafting!
