MFT Release Countdown Day 1 - Hammer Time

We made it - Day 1 of Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! I have two cards to share with you today which feature Let's Tool Around, that go-to stamp set for all your masculine cards. Think Tim Taylor here, folks!

I love a good ol' play on words and couldn't resist using the hammer from Let's Tool Around to create a 'hammer time' t-shirt. C'mon, sing it with me, folks...can't touch this!

The word 'TIME' is spelled out over the hammer using the Negative Dot Alphabet. I used the die-cut letter circles as a stencil, filling in the open spaces with embossing paste tinted with Blu Raspberry Ink Refill.

Because I'm impatient cow, I sped up the drying time of the embossed letters using my heat tool and was excited to see the embossing paste puff up a bit as it dried. If you haven't tried this sort of technic, just DO IT.  I was scared to try it and am so stinking thrilled that I finally did because it is so fun and looks so cool!

Inside is a sentiment from Let's Tool Around on a Horizontal Stitched Strip that I stamped with Woodgrain Background to match the card front. I added in the Blu Raspberry color with a wide fishtail flag from Blueprints 15.

My second card showcases the screwdriver and screws border from Let's Tool Around.

I love the addition of Woodgrain Background with this set! The screws border is Steel Blue Hybrid Ink on Steel Grey cardstock for a subtle look. After much debate, I settled on screwdrivers in Sweet Tooth ink for a little pop against the Blu Raspberry

Inside the card is a Square STAX stamped with the sorry sentiment from Let's Tool Around in Hybrid Inks - Blu Raspberry, Steel Blue and Orange Fizz. Love the solid coverage of these new inks!

Be sure to check in at the MFT Blog for up to the minute details on the latest release from My Favorite Things! I'll see later tonight for the New Product Launch with more new release goodies to share.
